The Lost Treasures

"So, what do you do with your miles?"


See comments below.


Some people are funny. Some are insightful. Some are cynical. Some find a humorous touch in everything. Others find irony. Some write beautifully. Few people do them all as well as Rabbi Yaakov Salomon does. Entertaining, inspiring, astute, he has the uncommon ability to look something to give us pause and make us think. His new book, Something to Think About , gives us just that -- with a healthy dose of wit and charm. Click here to order.

The 10% Brain Use Fallacy

MRIs and other brain scans reveal that all of us use almost all of our brains throughout the day. It's true that at any given moment, not all of the neurons in our brain are firing (and perhaps that's the source of this claim). But it's not true that a significant portion of our brains lie dormant.
Individuals who undergo brain trauma almost always suffer from some signficant loss of function. When there is brain damage you can witness the effect. If 90% of the brain were not needed, there would be far more cases of strokes, anuerysms, and brain damage having no effect. The myth doesn't reconcile with the reality we witness.
