110% of brain power 10% effective
1. The average human uses what percentage of their brain?
1. 10 % 2. 40 % 3. 100 %
My answer is none of the above we use 110% of our brain and we don't even know it. This idea stands to reason as man for centuries now, has tried time and again to figure out his mind and honestly remains clueless and some what impressed with his own ignorance. We somehow think we as humans we are so smart but we are not. The way the mind really works is more a kindergarten level mentality. Yes, even the brightest and best minds are only using unknown to them kindergarten level knowledge and that is the most the mind is really able to do. No matter if your a PhD,. or the smartest person in class around you must admit the human mind has many shortfalls and no one to this day except for a few of us every generation has had the right set of circumstances to figure it out.
Autistic like me, (Tesla Turing, Einstein and many others even those not so famous) learned all of the thoughts man (absently to a large degree) can do as we started life in a position below 123 and the ABC's. We learned the long hand version of human thought and thus when we figured out the impossible on our own with out a text book or teacher of any type we discovered your thoughts:your normal thoughts are simple short cuts of the typical longhand daydream based thoughts we all use and most never know they use.
As we came up from the bottom of the gene pool we were deaf and blind and presented as stupid in many cases, that was because our OPTIC and Brain Generated daydream type picture thoughts were being interchanged. We had no idea for years our optic and daydream vision were being interchanged. The actual optic vision and the autism brain generated images our brain made flowed together and we never knew our optic vision was even OFF. We had no idea our senses were heightened like a blind guy's was. As we heard the high pitch or the odd noise it was a clue to us to return to normal optic vision. Contemporary Autism calls this lack of eye contact. and treats it as a defect. Normal thinkers including autism researchers and experts galore know it to be a 'defect' and the peer review machine of Autism assures that it remains one.
Anyway the picture thoughts the same elementary ones that Autism's Temple Grandin is noted for are just the bare basic picture thought. We add more layers to her thoughts and THEN when complete all this 'invisible to you ' picture thought the very same cheap ,easy ,common shortcut ed thought most of the population knows and loves are the normal thoughts you don't even think about. Yes, We have figured out the human mind and it is not the marvel of specification it was hoped to be. One side of the scale is the Einstein types and when we do something wild or invent something We just use our picture thought based mind. Indeed it is like a computer in some respects and indeed our Alan Turing (gay autistic) just copied bits and pieces of his figured out mind when he fathered the computer in the 1950's. (and helped the allies win WWII).
There are 1000 chapters in psychology just waiting to be harvested if we could ever get psychology to admit to us and write down the road maps of the mind we have figured out. EVERYTHING human is figured out personalities, speech, genius, quirks, narcissism, smoking, autism ,dyslexia, stuttering and even depression and hearing issues get a new flowing fitting explanation. Emotion will be seen as nothing more than thought short cuts. Humans will be seen as radical first and not rational until the dust settles. NOTE none of the explanation is grand or great and we will be as humans disappointed in the lack luster results but all told they will explain the mind and expose our direct connection back to the roots of our prehumans. Man will not be able to look in the mirror any longer and wonder how smart he is. Success in life on all fronts will be determined to be more luck and timing than the use of real knowledge.
Indeed mans mind is one big photo album and the pictures we think with flow under the surface of the mind all the time. You even see them once in a while.... Have you stopped cold in a conversation? Then your OPTIC vision is OFF then you a picture of something or someone? You look it over and say it is in the closet as you see a minds eye daydream type picture of something you were looking for like a broom perhaps? Perhaps in another situation, you say that is Uncle Joe as you see a picture of him in your minds eye if the conversation was who was that man at the car show? Joe's name was not instant until you looked at your minds eye picture of him? The minds eye picture is similar to a daydream picture, and 1000's of them flow unnoticed below the surface of the mind all the time. Unless we are stuck do we look a them. In this case you had to look at Joe in your Minds eye and really think about who the name. When you set there and looked over Joe's picture and really analyzed it that is the exact same thing we do when present as Einstein and when an autistic person displays the lack of eye contact. In the case of the Autism Person he is finishing up a basic level thought and not doing the Einstein bit yet. I know now of this makes sense but until humans do the same trip up from the bottom of the gene pool like we have and as, long as Humans pretend they are smart and confirm they are 'smart' with peer review the human mind the real one, with the key to the kingdom will remain lost in plain sight like it has for centuries now.
Generally speaking from my point of view, the mind is 100% used and 10 % effective as we simply skim the surface of our picture thoughts we don't know we have. We glean small bits of this and that thoughts form words to be spoken and miss all the real details that would make one Einstein. Indeed Parrots and humans use the exact same thought to speech process, and here we thought we were a monkey's uncle.
Psychology is mostly worthless but I give it points for trying to figure out the mind. It is in the wrong ballpark for sure. Add in the mass ignorance factor of putting 3-4-5 or more humans together at once and then add in peer review protectionism for good measure and man is doomed to be the ignorant fool he has been for centuries now. Are we just nothing more than a test tube 'rats in a maze' experiment for some other planet?
It seems if that might be the case as man's pure ignorance and unabashed admiration for his "smart mind" has kept us occupied for some time now.
Gasp here is the real pisser of this Einstein bit, It is simply pure figured out human thoughts from one end ot the other. Our ideas DON"T come from Super Smart but rather from totally using the human mind to full effect. EVERY HUMAN has Einstein in them it is just never tapped and could be if psychology knew the 1000 chapters in psychology.
Everything mind wise fits and flows together with perfect explanations if our road map of the mind is followed. Our Personalities our quirks our good points our life as a human are all rooted in a massive talking photo album called our brain. Personality and emotions are just those picture thoughts in action and fitting right in with evolution. Brains don't think they remember and combine picture memories to form new thoughts. Perhaps someday Psychology can follow our road map and assure all humans have all their switches flipped correctly and the world will be a peaceful place. Life as we know it will be lost forever and that is a good thing as Hate (love actually) will be seen as nothing more than an emotion. Differences now seen as bad will be embraced and finally the human idea of one person being superior to another will be blown away. Di Vinci had it right when he said something along the lines of, " Wake up you Miserable humans".
