Remember me? I am your idea, your opinion, your imagination, produced by thinking. I am to be or not to be. Con-tem-plate me. I am neural activity especially—mostly in the more modern outer layer of your brain or, should I say, cortex, reminiscent of that caused by various experiences and sensations but which you can manipulate to your liking, your aims, your desires. Remember me? I come from the simplest reactions to stimuli and instincts; I have evolved the capacity of learning. The more you use me for righteousness, the more sophisticated your ability to anticipate and estimate outcomes. The more you use me for righteousness, the more you will be able to figure solutions to problems. I am of great value to you. I am your psychoanalysis; explore me for if you explore me, I will introduce you to biology, psychology, and even philosophy. Who put this thing together? Me. Who built this? Me. Who do I trust, who do I trust? Me. That is who I trust—who am I? I am a thought! Why not get to know me better?

Here they document not "reality" but social images preserved over time - the "NFB Society"--An evolving, cinematic representation of Canadian families, schools and communities.
