Expansive, as big as the universe!!!

From the book Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom by Rick Hanson.
.
“The brain is the primary mover and shaper of the mind.
It’s so busy that, even though it’s only 2 percent of the body’s weight, it uses 20–25 percent of its oxygen and glucose.
.
Like a refrigerator, it’s always humming away, performing its functions; consequently, it uses about the same amount of energy whether you’re deep asleep or thinking hard.
.
The number of possible combinations of 100 billion neurons firing or not is approximately 10 to the millionth power, or 1 followed by a million zeros, in principle; this is the number of possible states of your brain.”
.
.
Leave thought alone, choose to be present and taking action, to heal, to live fully, to be happy.
.
Under the ego, below the cognitive lies many, many, many, many of those choices.
