Summary
Not every machine can recharge and repair itself on a regular basis. Fortunately, the human machine can-quickly rebounding to a state of alertness, adaptability, and high-gear action. This program explores the staggering capabilities of the body's interlinked devices, from the sleeping brain to the wide-awake reproductive system. Viewers learn about the photographic powers of the eye, which surpass those of almost any camera; the 260-million-cell interface on which the brain depends for vision; the 16,000 nerve endings in the inner ear; and the biochemical complexities of our skin, immune system, hormones, and genitals. Illustrations of the body's collective DNA reveal its physical aspects-strung together it would reach beyond the solar system-and its central role in creating new human "machines
