I think the great thing about humanity is that we have the ability to make ourselves smarter. I'm not talking about studying or learning -- that's experience. Most intelligent animals gain experience. A chimpanzee learns to use a rock to hammer nuts rather than his fist. A wolf finds the best places to hunt. But it is only human beings, with our languages and our dedication to recording the past, thus preserving the experiences of our ancestors, that makes our species as a whole 'smarter.' One person might not be able to understand the brain... but over three millenia of collected writings on the mind? And over three centuries of writing on neuroscience? I think we're getting pretty damn close.   
   
So 						****					 everyone that has ever said, 'humans are just another animal and entirely insignificant in the grand scheme of things.' As far as we know, we are the only animal that can do this -- as such, it is our duty to ever strive to be better, smarter, and wiser. We are something special, independent of religion or atheism, and we are shepherds of this planet and its knowledge.

And if I try to further understand this post, my brain would be so overloaded it melts.

That makes no mathematical sense. Like if 3 is so insignificant to be less than 4, then it's so insignificant to be less than 2. Not only is it false, but there's no logical way to ever make that conclusion.

No, that's not what it's saying at all.

It's saying that there is a direct correlation between intelligence and complexity in the brain, if the brain were simple/small, we wouldn't be able to understand it because we would then no longer be able to have the complex thought processes that allow us to understand it.

But we can understand it! We understand a lot and we learn more every day.
