“When you want to have more energy and more ability to write, it comes down to one thing. And that’s electrons. At the end of the day, you’re a battery. Your job is to make enough electrons to do what you want to do. We call that energy. You get energy from food, air, and to some extent from light and magnetism. The problem that most people have is that they have unstable energy supply to their head. Your brain and visual processing system are probably using 20% of your calories. Your heart, eyes, and your brain have about 10,000 mitochondria (these little power plants in your cell), per cell. So they’re very dense in energy consumption. The rest of your body has 1 or 2 per cell. So you have 10 times the energy consumption and energy production ability in your brain. That means, especially if you’re smart and focusing a lot, if you have slight perturbations in your ability to bring energy into those cells, it’s basically energy brownout.” – Dave Asprey
