Model Answer:

Well, when I was a university student, I was lucky to have attended quite a few interesting lessons. Back then, of course, I didn’t really make much of these lessons. But, as time progressed, I realized that many of those lessons were not only interesting but also were very much relevant to the way we behave or act in one way or another.

I attended the lesson, the one I want to talk about, during the second year of my university studies about 4 years ago from now. This particular lesson was delivered by my new psychology teacher in his psychology class, of course. By the way, up and until then, psychology very much was a boring subject to me, not only because it involved a lot of reading, but also it was being taught by a rather “boring” teacher. 

But, things got really interesting when the new teacher had arrived and started to deliver the lessons, especially, when he started to talk about how the human brain really functions. And it is during one of these lessons, I came to understand how complex of an organ a human brain really is, and how it controls each and every aspect of our thoughts, actions and behaviours! Things got even more interesting when he showed us a video of an unimaginably massive and complex transmission of electrochemical signals through our brain cells, and this massively complex function is accomplished by a body organ that doesn’t weigh more than 3 pounds!   

Anyway, the lesson was fascinating to me mainly for two reasons: the first reason is that this particular lesson taught me there is indeed a “God”,  and without his divine intervention, such a unique and massively complex system called “brain” would just never function. The second reason is, the lesson taught me that a completely new kind of science – much more advanced science that is - needed to explain even a fraction of what our brains can really do. In the end, I can only say that I am really glad to have attended that lesson.
