He was something special that King David. Torah Sage, Warrior, Mystic, Poet, Leader and Hotelier [one of the fanciest in the Middle East]. In Tehillim he talks of the Majesty and Supremacy of Man together with his utter nothingness [see chapter 8].

In our brain alone we have 1,000,000,000,000 cells [who was the poor guy who had to count..]. The synapses [inner connections] in our mind are virtually infinite. A Russian scientest estimated that the number of synapses we have would be one followed by 10 million kilometers of zeros. Wow!! Ma rabu maasecha Hashem!!!

The Tolna Rebbe Shlita related that he read the following story in Neil Armstrong's autobiography: Before they sent him to the moon he underwent a thorough physical examination. The Doctors discovered that he had a cold. Since they didn't feel that it would endanger him and there is no cure for the common cold he was sent to the moon. When he arrived all of the sudden he felt an irresistable urge to sneeze. He tried to suppress it because he was afraid that it would damage his mask. Finally when he realized that he was going to sneeze he prayed to G-d that he would not be harmed. He sneezed and nothing happened. He then broke out in laughter when he realized that Man is brilliant enough to build a spaceship and send someone to the moon but at the same time cannot find a cure for the common cold.

Modern science has made such great advances yet has not yet figured out how to create one cell.

Indeed מה אנוש כי תזכרנו ובן אדם כי תפקדנו - ןתחסרהו מעט מאלוקים הוד והדר תעטרהו
