Too bad we have no idea how to tap into the brain's true potential or if it is even possible.
The proof is quite simple.
You can calculate an object speed and its trajectory, calculate your own speed and trajectory and estimate if you need to slowdown or even change your trajectory in less than a second when you simply look at a car.

Thats a simple thing that we all do everyday. Specially if you drive a car and travel alot.

No, we cant start saying how powerfull the human brain is. Some say that a single human being brain is more powerfull than all the computers in the world.
Others disagree and say that it is as powerfull as a single computer.
Researchers also say that we do not use not even half of our brain.

You should go to your local church and ask for evidences of god existence.

That's an old myth that has been debunked plenty of times by now.

The brain is excellent at spatial awareness which computers are quite slow at processing. Your pocket calculator can beat us at mathematical calculations but not even the most powerful supercomputer can recognize that a wooden chair with 4 legs and a beach chair are both "chairs" as fast as we can.

This is excellent news for the very large group of Internet users who are awaiting brain transplants.

All of this talk about whether or not a human brain is smarter than or worse than a supercomputer has me thinking...

What about savants? you know, autistic people that are extreme experts in a particular subject but lacking in others? I think its arguable that a savant's brain functions in such a way that it could be comparable to the capabilities of a supercomputer.

While an autistic savant may lack the knowledge of such things like tying his or her own shoes, they can easily recite complex mathematical equations, just like a supercomputer cannot paint you a portrait but can also solve complex mathematics.

So i'd say that the human brain seems to or does have the potential to be as powerful as a supercomputer.

Just my two cents...

yes the equivalent of utilizing 100% of your brain is called a seizure.

Just amazing. I would imagine that these brains would only include the cognitive sort of functioning and not things that are not necessary to the actual logical process... if this is even completely possible but hey they grew a damn brain... it isn't too far off haha.

This is also not just about things such as making brains that might touch the moral soft-spot. Imagine brain damage being a thing of the past. Take a sample of your brain and re-grow it and put it back in your head. I believe that the whole idea of brain atrophy would also be solved... possibly skyrocketing the average life expectancy.

The future is just in general awesome.

This makes you wonder if they can grow and keep memorys then they should be close to bringing a person back after they are past the time they normaly consider them brain dead.

Hmm. No they don't have capabilities compared to a supercomputer.
Second not all Savant's are autistic, FYI. Actually it's only like 47% have autism (I forget the exactly number but it's under 50%). Lastly very very few autistics have savant syndrome.

Lastly people with savant syndrome may excel at certain tasks. The reasoning is still unknown as to why this occurs. However their prowess isn't always as great as some may think. There are very few real genius savants.

Very few "savants" are mathematically related from my understanding. I mostly see photographic savants more then anything.
