"Peter, you've been quite pushy about the issue of the Church of Scientology issuing their accounts" lol.
Very nice! You're pretty coherent for a 14 year old jacked on Mountain Dew...
Good interview! I just try to immagine what had happened if this had been aired back before Chanology started. Oh, how things have changed!
Yep, Project Chanology changed everything, I was going to mention that but never got a chance
"only using 90% of your brain" - LOL.
Mods, please edit !
Where Did the 10% Myth Begin?
The 10% statement may have been started with a misquote of Albert Einstein or the misinterpretation of the work of Pierre Flourens in the 1800s. It may have been William James who wrote in 1908: "We are making use of only a small part of our possible mental and physical resources" (from The Energies of Men, p. 12).
Perhaps it was the work of Karl Lashley in the 1920s and 1930s that started it. Lashley removed large areas of the cerebral cortex in rats and found that these animals could still relearn specific tasks. We now know that destruction of even small areas of the human brain can have devastating effects on behavior. That is one reason why neurosurgeons must carefully map the brain before removing brain tissue during operations for epilepsy or brain tumors: they want to make sure that essential areas of the brain are not damaged.
So next time you hear someone say that they only use 10% of their brain, you can set them straight. Tell them:
"NOT TRUE; We use 100% of our brains."
I love the internet so much.
