We take our brains for granted. If you’re reading this, you’re using your brain. If you stop using this, you’re still using your brain. In fact, there’s not a moment in your life that goes by when you’re not using your brain even if you try to “clear your head” and let the thinking stop. It won’t. It’s constant.
