VAT: The nerve of the nerve cells

The body’s nerve cells make up 2% of its cells and consume 20% of its energy.

“I’ve got the brains and you’ve got the money. Let’s go into business. In the first year we’ll be partners, split everything 50/50.”  “What about the second year?” “In the second year I’ll have the money and you’ll have the brains.”

While the mind does not do hard physical work as do other cells, it creates our reality which saps much more energy.  It is also nimble at tricking others and often ourselves as well.
