your brain stores masses of information. The human brain is a mass of jelly you can hold in your hand and yet it can contemplate the vastness of interstellar space.
Th ebrain encodes what we know in cells called Beurons and there is something like 100 Trillion neural connections
Your brain contains the equivalent of 20 million volumes of information and has been described as a very big place inside a very small space.

No longer at the mercy of the reptile brain we can change ourselves. Think of the possibilities
