My cells all operate as a single cohesive system with an actual central control (one brain).

Human bodies which do not have that property suffer badly from it.

There is no central brain managing what we call "THE internet" and my point isn't that INTERNETs don't exist, it's that 
there's no particular one you can point to and call it "THE internet".

Hi Owen,

Your body consists of many millions of distinct biological entities
(cells) operating cooperatively and competitively in many interesting
ways all based on the same core "code," but I have to think you'd take
offense if I said there was no such thing as "Owen Delong."

Poor Internet can't get no respect...
