Yes you do, you just don't think about it, but your brain needs to process a bazillion stuff just to keep you alive, and that doesn't even account for the massive amount of processing that goes into processing memes with cat pictures. The main difference is that your CPU was designed to handle a couple of large tasks really fast and your brain evolved to handle a truck load of small ones in parallel.

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
