Before you start playing this human body quiz here, we will like to ask you a simple question.

Do you agree that the human body is the most sophisticated technology on Earth?

Agree or not, yes, it is!

The human body reflects the ultimate level of sophistication that we have failed to understand with absolute clarity to far.

There are many things that we have learned but again, there are gazillions of things that we are yet to learn!

For instance, we do not yet know the extent of the capabilities of the human brain!

Can you ever imagine the extraordinary amounts of evolutionary memory stored in every cell of our body?

Well, that’s the level of complexity and sophistication that comes with human body and even with every living organism on this planet.

Needless to say, we humans always focus on external things. We could have understood the working and the dynamics of the universe much better if we could master our own body first.

Okay, we are going philosophical. That’s totally out of line!
