shifty

is it true that when we can use 100% of our brains

18 posts in this topic

we will be able to transform objects in to pure energy/float around?

and that when we reach 11%, we'll be able to slightly manipulate objects (ie, levitate them)

The average human being uses between 7% and 15% of their brain power. Geniuses like Albert Einstein, Michael Faraday and Stephen Hawking use 15%, most people use around 10% or so.

That's not true. Actually, we use the whole brain in some form or fashion. Now, we don't use all of our brain at once - certain sections are devoted to different things - but logically thinking about it, if most of the brain wasn't used, wouldn't have been evolutionarily phased out? After all, that means that it would be some useless, inoperable thing (at least 90% of it) that requires resources to form and just let sit.

Where the hell did you hear this from? The Onion?

no, some kid that was at a Brawl party last night.

sounds plausible.

I don't think it would be possible for a human-being to be able to alternate physics and gravity. It's constant and independent. There is no correlation between human brain signals and what applies to the universe. The reason why we only use such small percentages of our brain is because brain cells are not regenerative. If they are lost they will never come back. Even tapping your head lightly kills a few thousand brain cells. Think of it more of a protective device.

I find it plausible. Did you know that electrons change their activity when watched? Simply the act of monitoring an electron, not physically touching or changing it in any way, it changes patterns.

Theres a good book I read last week thats semi on this topic it's "Childhood's End" By Arthur C. Clarke. Pretty interesting even though it's kinda short. Read it some time!

Myth Busters did something like this. They took a Polygraph (or something like it) and hooked it up to a plant. Then they had someone think bad/happy/neutral thoughts about the plant while in the same and different rooms. The plant would actually have different reactions to each event.

Not sure if this is related - there are certain types of atoms that are monitored by scientists. They simply bounce around when not being directly looked at, as in, looked at by human eyes. If someone were to look at the container in which the atoms were in, they stopped "going crazy", fell into a pattern, and simply moved around in a line, together. As soon as that person turned or left, they began bouncing around again. The fact that the atoms stopped moving only when directly looked at, but not while being monitored by machines (which is how we knew they were bouncing around), has led some people to believe that our eyes emit neuro-electrical signals or something from our eyes that are linked to our brain, and these signals/charges affect atoms. Weird, right?

I can raise a body part of mine, without touch'n it aswell.

//ontopic. I didn't know all this stuff, sounds pretty cool. *looks at the keyboard, and waits for it to type by it self.* No it doesn't work for me :(

No. Every experiment that shows plants to have emotions has been unable to be reproduced, and thus has been invalid. Even on the Myth Busters one, they admitted there was some feedback from somebody talking. Plants don't have brains; plants cannot possess even the most basic animalian emotions then. Emotions are a strictly vertebrate-borne phenomena.

The day you can alter physics with merely a CPU, you may do it with your brain. Or your penis if you so like.

I think booze would have a better chance of doing it with his penis than his mind.
