What I had learned was that there are different ways to measure the brain towards the purpose of determining the ratios. For example, in terms of
brain mass the ratio is one value, but in terms of caloric energy consumption it is entirely different.
In the case of sporadic coding, the waste of having all your brain undergoing chemical traffic is minimized by intelligently controlling a number of
parallel processes by engaging only those that a particular circumstance would require.
I agree to a large extent, as self-evident as it may seem to be a matter of fundamental biophysics, I propose it may not be. There is a quantum
element at work within the human brain. The observer projects some manner of influence over the observed... we have a ways to go before we have that
But ultimately, the best number to say I thought was at any given time during consciousness, humans brains idle at about 20-30% in terms of
electrochemical activity. In infants its like 70%.
