Lately as I am coming off medication my mind has been re-wiring and opening up again. Now an average human uses 10% only of our brain, or do we? I think the ‘10%’ is a myth. So I went on a research hunt and found that this myth of 10% was actually created in 1890 by William James and Boris Sidis both from Harvard University. It is said!! But trying to find documentation of this is very tricky; there are so many stories and opinions. The facts are the human mind uses all its 100 billion neurons
So why do I talk to you dear reader today about our Brain? In the early 1900’s Scientists ripped open brains to see what parts did what and it was a gray area, no pun intended. So what is the real percentage of the Human brain function? One thing science has proven through my research is the brain can self heal when it’s been damaged, as far as research goes we only have 2 organs that self heal, our brain and liver can regenerate, unless it has become cirrhotic from poison like alcohol. Other organs can only recover slightly, after a little bit of harm. Our brain uses a huge 20% of our body’s energy so this point’s to the human mind being fully active. Some parts do more and some less, bones heal also, so other parts to heal. The recent movie ‘Lucy’ showed a girl with 100% power of mind, here is the trailer:
Lucy – TRAILER (2014)
So we see Hollywood as usual not lying to us, but giving us false representation of the inner workings of the human mind. Why is it some people are smarter than others is the real question I pose here. The human brain helps the whole body. Skin regenerates. Some nerve cells can regenerate. Fractured bones can fuse. Massage of the abdomen is the best way to help the health of gastro-intestinal organs, since ordinary exercise only increases blood flow to the voluntary muscles, heart and lungs. To do good for the abdominal organs, you have to take your hands and massage the outer skin, with your hands. Use circular motion, both clockwise and counter-clockwise. Liver and pancreas can be helped by rubbing the heels of your hands just under the rib cage, from your sides toward the middle (solar plexus) when we do this, we help our body.
“Mind over matter” is a saying I think most have heard in their lives and one I am thinking about just now. So I am sharing something with you here. I have had scans, x-rays, Blood work up and I am ok. I have fibromyalgia, chronic pain syndrome and M.E but this is not the issue, the issue is the medication that suppressed my mind. So I match my mind to the research I did that told me 75% of the 1st World are medication via their Dr. 3/4 of the developed World are medicated.
Do We Really Use Only 10% Of Our Brain?

So this poses more questions. See coming off my medication I am starting to see more, feel more and I can’t find words to describe that wouldn’t cause men in white coats to come and take me away. The last 2 mornings have been, well strange. Yesterday morning I was awoken by my partner, I stood up, turned around and she was laying on the bed sound asleep. Today I woke up on my own, looked behind me and my partner wasn’t in bed, I roamed the house shouting for her then I realized I was home alone. I sent my partner a text asking “Where are you at 9:20 am” Because we always tell each other if we have plans. I then felt cold so went back to my bedroom for my house coat and my partner was asleep in our bed. Yeah, I freaked out a little. 2 mornings in a row. Last week when I was dozing off I seen what was an orange red opening on my wall, this was when I was moments from falling asleep, it didn’t scare me, I just fell asleep. At no other times has my mind played tricks on me. This is either me coming of medication or it’s something completely different. I will journal my thoughts as I go and maybe one day real soon I can have answers to many questions I need the answer for. I believe because my mind was oppressed for so long with Dehydrocodone, Tramadol, Diazepam and Morphine, my mind is opening up.
So my curious nature is now asking “How much is my mind opening” I am using words like ‘Exponentially’ in every day chat. That word means In this question, exponentially is an adverb that means in a manner of rapid growth. Use exponentially when you want to say that something’s increasing quickly by large amounts. Your friends and colleagues will be pleased to hear that your vocabulary is growing exponentially. This is what I am feeling today. The human mind is still a mystery to our Scientific World and I would go as far as to say “We know NOTHING about the Human Brain” I want to know, so I am learning fast these days, I am consuming information and saving it, I am remembering more, time has slowed down, days feel longer and my mind is talking to me, demanding I learn. Because the internet is fun, I look forward to what I find…
For now, Shauny 🙂
