Lullaby for the taken


Lucy (2014)

"It is estimated most human beings only use ten percent of the brain’s capacity. Imagine if we could access one hundred percent. Interesting things begin to happen."

I can’t believe that they made an entire movie about this. We use as much of our brains as possible! In fact, we actually re-cycle neuronal connections during sleep to make room for new memories.

Human neurogenesis theories are a facet of what’s actually happening in neurobiology. Research is being done to find out if human brains actually create new neurons throughout their lives, not just during development (possibly to handle some of the HUGE information flow). 

The reason I’m writing all this is because movies like this understate the actual beauty and complexity of real life. In reality, within the brain and evolution, everything fits together into an incredibly complicated and fluid system. Evolution is the primordial force displaying the drive for life to survive. Which I’m sure is actually a cooler concept than anything that will be introduced in this movie. 

Maybe this movie introduces some important statements in other areas, like the mega-powerful intelligent female protagonist, but it should lay off of the faux neurobiological concepts. 

Anyways, The Gut-Brain axis is where it’s actually at, why didn’t they make a movie about that!!!
