The guys who one the Nobel prize in '81 (Hubel and Wiesel) for tremendous advances in visual physiology got it for learning how cats' brains process vision. They figured out how these cats see the orientation of a single line. That was considered cutting edge. And we still have a lot to learn about how the eye sees and how the brain processes what the eye sees. We don't have cures for cancer, heart disease, and a host of other diseases. We only figured out antibiotics in the last 75 years. I'd say our knowledge is pretty darn incomplete at this point.

From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"
