Man's brain is limited. To say - that as most animals have brains in proportion to their body size – species with larger bodies often have larger brains. But the human brain is almost six times bigger than expected for our bodies... Only tells us very clearly that indeed man's brain is indeed limited. Brain is a very complicated organ that runs our body. What is needed is to unravel the structural and functional features of each and every cell of our brain, instead of looking at its size in comparison to other animals, big or small. People are suffering from many neurodegenerative disease and efforts should be focussed onto that research instead. Wasting brains energy on such matters only shows that our brain is indeed limited.
