What One Can Do, One Must Do!

Imagine how sad it would be to own the world’s most advanced supercomputer and never truly use its unmatched superpowers. Well, guess what? Many of us are doing that exact thing right now! We all own the world’s most capable supercomputer that ever existed, and unfortunately, most of us don’t know it.

This supercomputer is our human brain. It’s the only supercomputer in the world that could handle the billions of functions that our human body does every day from walking upright and to focusing our eyes faster than any expensive camera could ever accomplish.

Our supercomputer mind can even take our food and drink and turn it into life-nourishing blood. Then our supercomputer brain can figure out how to get our heart to pump this blood ceaselessly through our bodies. It does all this, and more, while we do other complicated things, like reading Shakespeare while wondering how all this old stuff relates to our modern social media world.

No supercomputer in the world outside of our human brain can do all of these things mentioned above. No combination of supercomputers in the world can do all of these things above, yet our brain does this as effortlessly as we breathe. Hey, wait a minute… our mind controls that breathing thing too, doesn’t it? As a matter of fact, doesn’t our brain control too many other things simultaneously to even begin to mention here? Wow… Thinking about all this just blows my mind…

Now imagine… how much more we could do with that supercomputer-mind of ours… Are we starting to shake a little bit with anticipation thinking about the possibilities? Good! And you want to know something else? This is just the tip of the iceberg…
