this was from another post.
Apostate man "the human mind is a wonderful healing device and we only use about 10% of it."
Xander '*bzzzzt* Sorry, urban legend. We use 100%.
Now I've heared this being discussed a few times here before,
but i think the piont is being missed.
although we use all our brains funtions we do not use it all to its full potential.
Of cource no one knows what its full potential is and it probably varies from person to person anyway.
But when scientists talk of using 10% of the brain what i think is meant is 10% of its potential, where as we use all our brain funtions .The fact that we use all of our Brains funtions is what is meant when other scientists say we use 100% of the brain.
Just like we use all of our computer to play a basic game, but not its full potential .When we play a game wih complex graphics and sound etc we are using the same parts but to a higher degree.
