Visualizing the number of neurons in the brain
Or how to see big numbers
If I were to tell you that the human brain has 100 billion neurons, can you picture it in any meaningful way ?
The core problem seems to be the lack of mental machinery for visualizing large numbers; for instance, close your eyes and imagine 2 apples, easy enough right ? 3,4 apples ? 6 apples ? 8 apples ?
