The other day I was reading an interesting article about this new product called the Batteriser. It is a small metal band that you put over batteries and it still small enough to use the battery almost anywhere you normally do. The theory behind this $2.50 piece of metal is that it taps into the unused hidden energy inside the battery. The study was saying that we only use about 20% of the batteries full potential. When the battery starts losing power the amps that is uses goes down. But the Batteriser keeps the amps up to allow you to use the full potential of each of the battery, resulting in about 8 hours more use out of just one battery. Now I am not trying to sell any one this product, but I thought this was very interesting, the idea of using our unused hidden potential energy.
When I look at the upcoming generations some people may complain, “this is the future of our Country?” but I look at them like I do the makers of the Batteriser. I only see their unused hidden potential energy, and how can we tap into that to make sure they are not a lost generation, but the generation to change the world. A call to arms if you will. God designed our bodies in such an amazing way. When thinking about the unused potential energy, I can’t help but thinking about the brain, because after-all, that is where everything starts, including the battle for the next generation. Look at what the Scientific American says about the brain:
The human brain consists of about one billion neurons. Each neuron forms about 1,000 connections to other neurons, amounting to more than a trillion connections. If each neuron could only help store a single memory, running out of space would be a problem. You might have only a few gigabytes of storage space, similar to the space in an iPod or a USB flash drive. Yet neurons combine so that each one helps with many memories at a time, exponentially increasing the brain’s memory storage capacity to something closer to around 2.5 petabytes (or a million gigabytes). For comparison, if your brain worked like a digital video recorder in a television, 2.5 petabytes would be enough to hold three million hours of TV shows. You would have to leave the TV running continuously for more than 300 years to use up all that storage.
Now we all probably assume that these generations coming up watch three million hours of TV, but we can see that that is not possible in one lifetime. But here is what stood out to me the most. If one neuron tried to memorize everything by itself, it would run out of storage space. It is when the neurons work together that they are able to memorize and obtain more information that is even humanly possible for one lifetime. That is what we need to do when we are trying to tap into the next generation’s unused hidden potential energy. And look at what they would be able to accomplish if they worked together!
So put on your own Batteriser and tap into your unused hidden potential energy. See how much you can learn even just today. Then when you have figured out how to do this, share it with those around you. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather be running on 100% instead of 20%. Be the one that makes a difference today.
