    The most complex piece of organic matter on the face of the earth is your brain. What do we really undersand about it? How much of it do we use on a daily basis? How much do we not use? How much truth is there to the idea that some people use more of their right side versus the left, and visa versa?

    Wasn't it discovered that we use near all of it and that the whole "only 10%" theory was thrown out?

    I thought that theory was a widely misinterpreted fact and that we use the whole brain, but only 10% of it at a time.

    I'll leave the Google or Wikipedia action to the ambitious type for answering this one.

    i guess the core of EBKs rhetoric is that, knowing that were using a small percentage of what the brain can really do, will we ever be able to fully utilize it.

    Ops's all time top five responses to this thread:

    1. Will you be citing your sources and actually supporting your claims this time?

    2. You let us know what you understand, in a concrete fashion, about damn near anything, and we’ll let you know whether or not you’re grounded in reality or not. From that point maybe we can establish a basis for conversation where both source poster and audience interchange information intellectually.

    3. Well, how much of your brain do you burn out on a daily basis?

    4. I hope to see more of this:

    Source Poster: “I believe this outlandish claim.”
    Response: “Your claim is garbage, this claim is much better.”
    Source Poster: “I agree 100%, and believe this outlandish claim.”
    Response: “WTF!?”

    5. How much of the brain do you use…ON WEEEEEEEEEEED!? WOAAAAH!

    We know that the physical brain is about 60% fat.

    That's right, you heard me. I called you a fathead.
