From births and weddings to mails and tweets to earthquakes and lightnings, there’s a lot going on around the world even as this line is written. Even at an individual level, there are so many processes running seamlessly inside our complex bodies every second that it’s a wonder that we are hardly able to realize. By the time you have reached this point, about 33 thoughts have crossed your mind, 250 babies have been born and 200 million emails sent around the world! Don’t believe?
