  • You can do anything!

  • Paint a masterpiece in a minute,

  • learn every language in an hour,

  • build a multi-billion dollar company overnight,

  • and rule the world by tomorrow!

  • Or is it because you're not using your brain at its full potential?

  • This is 'What If,'

  • and here's what your brain would be like at full capacity.

  • The brain, to say the least, is very complex.

  • The brain, to say the least, is very complex. We've studied it for centuries, and we're still learning more of its secrets today.

  • We've studied it for centuries, and we're still learning more of its secrets today.

  • But be careful! The search for facts can sometimes lead to fiction.

  • Brain size relates more to proportion than it does to intelligence.

  • For example, here's your brain next to a whale's.

  • Your brain is smaller than a whale's because your body is smaller.

  • However, your brain is structured in a way that enables you to survive, and succeed.

  • We've seen what really smart people can do.

  • They inspire us through art, music, and literature;

  • they change the odds in sports;

  • they come up with tools to make our lives easier;

  • and they help organize society as a whole to make us all more powerful

  • for better or for worse.

  • With access to your brain's full capacity, you're limitless.

  • So what do you do?

  • First things first, you finally get to solve the Rubik's cube

  • that's been collecting dust on your shelf.

  • Call up your smartest friend, and challenge them to a game of chess.

  • Checkmate in two moves.

  • When you're done being a smarty pants, you'll be looking for a real challenge.

  • Since, being smart means that you won't be as stimulated

  • by the things that keep us simpletons happy...

  • When you're limitless, you don't have to choose.

  • "Picasso was overrated!"

  • "Sorry I'm late, I was up all night curing cancer!"

  • "...so I thought, well why not? And that's how the time traveling toilet came to be!"

  • Okay, back up.

  • What happens to your body when you're dedicating all your brain's energy

  • to a creation, a cure, or a patent?

  • Your lungs breathing, your heart beating,

  • your food digesting, and your blood circulating

  • that's all your brain.

  • Even if you could access 100% of your brain's capacity, you couldn't use it.

  • You would be limited by your body's survival needs.

  • Remember when we asked,

  • The 10% thing is a myth; and it probably comes from a simple confusion.

  • Your brain is 10% neurons, and 90% glial cells.

  • There are different types of neurons that take care of different functions,

  • but in general, your neurons enable you to process and transmit information,

  • while your glial cells surround your neurons, providing them with support and insulation.

  • Your brain has just as many neurons as Albert Einstein's did!

  • Maintain healthy habits; that's the smart thing to do!

  • And, of course, it's a no brainer!

You can do anything!
