Is there something about your own brain that makes it an exceptional
tool for learning?  Certainly, if it were sufficiently special or
unique, it would be inappropriate for use as a teaching tool helping
people understand the "generic" human brain. And if it is so
commonplace as to be useful, then it is no better than anyone else's
to use as an example.

Get over your egotism and pride.
