I went to the cinema with my friend last night and saw Lucy. The film explores the theory that we only use 10% of our brain capacity, and what would happen if we accessed the rest, right up to the full 100%.
I love a film that makes me think, as Ironically I believe it makes me access more of my brain to do so.
Based on the theories in the film, I believe I use more than 10% of my brain, and I am blessed with being quirky because of it.
From what I recall, when Lucy can accesses 28% of her brain capacity, she remembers events in her childhood, that previously she couldn’t recollect.
This got me thinking about my earliest childhood memories. Including one where I was sat on my potty in the kitchen and my mum looked at me, and I felt self conscious. To be so aware of myself at a young age, to me, is very quirky.
Especially in order to write, to be a lateral thinker and come up with creative solutions, I have to allow my creative mind, to take over my normal brain. I have to allow it, its freedom unrestrained. When I do this, magic happens, my quirkiness blossoms and it’s like a special place that my mind it taken to; that to my knowledge, is nothing like one would normally experience. I am truly blessed. To my own mind, this is creative genius. To others it may be crazy, but if quirky is crazy, I love it.
What’s your own take on the situation?
How much of your brain capacity do you feel you use?
What are your earliest childhood memories?
I am very interested to hear your thoughts and looking forward to reading your answers.
