Maybe we only used 10-15% of our brains when we didn't know what the other
85-90% did, but now this is nothing more than a pervasive scientific myth.

If psilocybin unlocks the power of 90% of our brain, why do we not see an
academic elite of psychedelic drug-users? (not to suggest that
there aren't any brilliant psychedelic drug-users!)

I, for one, like to use more than 10% of my brain, and I can even do it
WITHOUT psilocybin!
