In brief: Incomplete brain dvp

It may be surprising to some but the brain continues linking up neurons well into the mid 20's.
The fantacy based kid goes thru sevreal transitions to the amaisingly self invested teen who often feel that they understand everything& are invincable. Its not untill the late 20's that the brain is finished & greater perspective more likely. Sad they have equipment before they perspective on proper use.
