100% use of our brains AND 100% of our DNA encoded/activated...what would happen?
Science tells us that we only use 3-7%, maybe 10%, of our brain power and capacity (percentages vary amongst scientist)

Also from what I've read is that as much as 90+ percent of our DNA is considered "junk", is not encoded, or simply has no function.

Now imagine what a human would be like if he/she had use of a 100% fully functioning brain and all DNA were fully functioning and fired up!

I say we would have powers like the gods, or the X-men at the very least lol. Mind reading, telepathy, telekinesis, bio location, super intelligence, super strength, etc. etc.

What do you guys think?

The upcoming vaccin for the flu (H1N1) will avoid the activation of DNA to be fully functional.

yeez.... it's a myth that you can use 100% of your brain power, not possible. Different parts in the brain control different parts, use all at once and you get a seizure.

My opinion is that we would leave earth immediately. We would no longer need or be able to remain human.
Never mind.

It would be like Atlantis originally was before they used that power to destroy themselves.

DNA is currently being activated in some right now. In four years we will see for ourselves what this means.

 Quoting: dschis

I tend to agree with this, although I think it also allows for adaptation as needed.

For instance, we don't really think about all the shifts in our lives, and how we use different portions of our bodies and brains in different "phases" (using that term loosely here) of our lives. We all have variations in our physical activities and need different skills and abilities during different years.

The "excess" DNA allows us to switch gears, and might explain some of the reason why new skills, or rusty skills are so difficult at first, and with practice they become second nature, then when our lives change, other skills become more important and are similarly difficult at first, until our bodies retool to handle the new environment.

If you think about all the complexities of seemingly simple activities, and the difference between those clumsy first tries, and the effortless, well-practiced actions later on, it goes a long way toward explaining some of the seemingly useless DNA, IMO.

we use 100% of our brains. its just a myth that we use less (a very old, long ago debunked myth)

Junk dna does count for 90%+ of our dna but it is a poor name. No one now actually beleives it is really complete junk in the sense it has no purpose.

So all in all a complete waste of a post using outdated wrong information

Oh, I forgot...You'd probably need a ton more food each day, as the DNA machinery would be running full tilt, requiring all sorts of resources to do it's work. Or more likely, our normal food processing would be inadequate, and you'd need some other way of culling your nutrients and energy sources, on the level of 10-40x more than you use now...at least.

That's a lot of food. At the top end of those energy needs, skipping a single meal would be about the same as not eating for almost two weeks at our current 3 square meal tradition.

On the upside, you'd lose weight quick and easy, eliminating the need for those annoying Richard Simmons commercials.

TPTB would go on more witch hunts and fry your ass just as they did in the past.

Our Ancient Ancestors were able to use parts of the Brain we can not today.

TPTB then made sure those enlightened ones did not survive, you would not survive now either.,

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 593335


Percentages definitely vary. Pseudo-scientists quote various fractional figures (they seem to like 30 and 70 percent a lot, though). People who actually know something about the brain know it is all in use, though not all at the same level at all times.



Also from what I've read is that as much as 90+ percent of our DNA is considered "junk", is not encoded, or simply has no function.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 593335


"Junk" is becoming a less-used word now. But, sure, over ninety percent of what's in there is not normally transcribed.

However, that material does come into play when there are various forms of transcription error. A lot of it appears to be random or partial copies of material which is normally transcribed. But because the errors of transcription can miss the genetic equivalents of paragraph indents and carriage returns, when it gets tossed back into the mix it may encode some completely novel protein. From here comes much of the novelty mutations, and natural selection, build upon.

We can actually survive having quite a few chunks of normally non-coding material show up. But it's tricky. Any one of them could be just the thing to totally wreck the Hox sequencing -- leading to four-armed babies with no legs -- or interfere with correct production of essential enzymes -- such as in advanced diabetes.

If you were born with everything that could be derived from the entire code, derived and made protein...well, you'd never even make it that far. The mother's body would notice the riot of wrong and shut down the pregnancy early.

As an adult, if you were to have this stuff switched on...well, mutation is what happens when you tinker with the base code while the organism is growing. You tinker with a Hox gene on an adult, they don't grow an extra lung. The cells that want to be a new lung can't get there from here, not through an adult body. So instead they grow wild. And we have a simple word that describes the condition of cells that aren't doing what they are supposed to.

Cancer.



Now, I'm not saying the scenario you propose is entirely impossible. But instead of transcribing everything, stick to just one or two new enzymes.
