There are up to 100 billion neurons in our brains. Each neuron has up to 100 thousand dendrites making over 100 trillion constantly changing connections. According to John Ratey, MD, author of A Users Guide to the Brain: “The neuron and its thousands of neighbors send out roots and branches – the axons and dendrites – in all directions, which intertwine to form an interconnected tangle with 100 trillion constantly changing connections… We call them Neural Networks. The Ceramic Baseball Analogy is a good way to explore the neural matrix and inner landscape of the mind.
