The 10% of our brains thing

  1. Dec 14, 2011 #1
    It seems to me that it would be horrible to have 100% control of my brain, as then I would have to spend all my time making myself breath, regulating my temperature, pumping my heart, keeping myself from falling over....I would think the other 90% is very busy indeed and we should be thankful to have 10% to spend on whatever we choose.

    We use all of our brain, we just do not need to use all of it all of the time.
