Okay—so what's the consensus? The 10% represents active brain activity at any given time? It's another number, but we def don't use it all all at once?

What is the scientific understanding of brain activity?

Here's what I last read:

Neurologist Barry Gordon describes the myth as laughably false, adding, "we use virtually every part of the brain, and that [most of] the brain is active almost all the time"

So how do we make the movie? What do we change about how we access/use the brain to remake Lucy or whichever is your favourite of the trope?

That having been said—is the brain really the organ you want 100% control of—is there one you'd rather?
