You are describing a myth; in fact, it is well known what happens
with the rest of our brain capacity. We are only using 10% of
our brain in any given moment, but the other parts are memories
we aren't using, and redundancy. The last is EXTREMELY
important, as, after age 30, our brain starts to deteriorate.
Without the redundancy, we would not live past our early 30's.
