Vince Poscente wrote a short story about an Ant and an Elephant. It's based (in a nut shell) on the mind functioning in two difference spaces; the conscious and subconscious. In about a second, the conscious mind utilizes 2000 neurons where the subconscious is using 4 Billion. It can be said the difference in power varies in magnitude as that of an Ant and an Elephant. When the 2000 take control and steer the 4 Billion life changes quickly.
