Naegleria protozoa in inflamed brain, colored TEM
This is a colorized transmission electron micrograph of Escherichia coli O157:H7 showing flagella. Pseudoreplica technique. E. coli O157:H7 was first recognized as a cause of illness in 1982 during an outbreak of severe bloody diarrhea; the outbreak was traced to contaminated hamburgers. Since then, most infections have come from eating undercooked ground beef.
The bacteria appear pink. The macrophage (appearing blue) is stretching out and engulfing (eating) them. Macrophages are a type of white blood cell which acts as a 'Pacman' in our bodies - it eats foreign bodies (like bacteria) and digests them. This is part of your body's front line defense against invaders.

The details that slip by in every moment.: When it comes to creativity, all of that information, subconscious or otherwise , is important. It’s the ideas and experiences you store in your brain that impact the creation of new ideas and solutions to problems. Being aware of all the input you’re missing out on leads to a simple way to trick your brain into being more creative: by actively causing your more conscious mind to observe some of the subconscious bits you encounter.
