The human brain sets us apart from all other species on Earth by enabling us to achieve all sorts of wonders that practically no other species have been able to do.
Feats such as walking on the moon, composing masterpieces of art, literature, music, innovating and incorporating technology into our lives... all these have been made possible because of that spongy, three-pound mass of fatty tissue.
Yet, for all of its comparisons to our own modern technological innovations – such as a telephone switchboard and supercomputer – the human brain is a far more complex mechanism than we can ever imagine.
Despite the vast leap in technological advancements, we still have yet to discover the full extent of the human brain’s capabilities.
For all the years of research in neuroscience, a large majority of the world’s population is still only capable of using a mere fraction of their brains; between 5% to 10%... or at least that’s how the popular myth goes.
The thing is, it isn’t true that we use that little of our brain at any given time; each part of the human brain has a purpose.
Yet the average person has no absolute control over the functions of the human brain.
The average person lacks the capability to access their own mind at will to “prioritize” each function of the brain.
