Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe a function such as breathing is
usually controlled by the brain stem. If I focus on my breathing, my
conscious mind begins to shake hands and say "How do you do?" with my brain
stem. Also, certain physical challenges requiring coordination of the left
and right side of the body can open up a moment where I "see" my conscious
mind commanding my muscular functions. Not quite brain stem territory, but
it gets close.
