                            In proportion to our body mass, our brain is three times as large as that of our nearest relatives. This huge organ is
                            dangerous and painful to give birth to, expensive to build and, in a resting human, uses about 20 % of the body’s
                            energy even though it is just 2 % of the body’s weight. There must be some reason for all this evolutionary expense.
