I do not intend to be a troll but it can't be helped.

The 10% brain use refers to the amount of computing power that is used consciously by humans. The other 90% of the brain runs the rudimentary functions of the body, breathing, the beating of your heart, walking, chewing, digesting, need I continue? The fact is we only consciously use 10% of our brain.
