Could magnets make the mind grow stronger? In mice at least, stimulating the brain with a magnetic coil appears to promote the growth of new neurons in areas associated with learning and memory. If the effect is confirmed in humans, it might open up new ways of treating age-related memory decline and diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has been used experimentally to treat a range of brain disorders, including depression and schizophrenia, and to rehabilitate people after a stroke. TMS uses a magnetic coil to induce electric fields in the brain tissue – activating or deactivating groups of neurons, although the exact mechanism has remained unknown. One theory was that it aided learning and memory by strengthening brain circuits through a process called long-term potentiation (LTP).
To investigate, Fortunato Battaglia at the City University of New York and his colleagues gave mice TMS for five days, then analysed …
I watched a great documentary about how the internet and the sharing of information is changing the world. One of the questions posed, are we made of bits of information ourselves? If so, what does this say about our species? I recommend it as worthy time spent. In current light of the present debate about S.O.P.A, I ask shouldn’t all information be free?
I have observed over time that U.F.O.’s always seem to show up around volcanoes and earthquakes. This led me wonder if their agenda is one which is watching or participating. How easy would it be for these machines to cause such reactions.
While learning about sonarluminescense I realized simple manipulation of waves into liquids might cause nuclear fusion or a reaction of sorts. So I wonder with magma being a liquid if there might be an agenda to these craft being present.
I have also heard of the theory that these crafts may account for why so many people go missing when there are massive deaths.
In whatever case it is becoming increasingly evident these crafts are real. The question is what is their purpose.
Is it negative or positive. Why is it angels only seems to appear with specific missions where as aliens seem to have known. This makes me wonder.
For millennia, philosophers have debated whether or not the self exists solely in the mind, the body, or both. Well, it’s unclear whether this will help clear things up or just muddy the waters further, but Swedish neuroscientists are now claiming that the human brain can add outside objects such as a third arm to one’s physical sense of self, and that people can even mentally project their “self” out of their own body and into someone else’s. If these findings hold up, the implications for virtual reality, robotics and prostheses could be substantial.
Experiments were performed at Stockholm’s Karolinska Institutet medical university, in which a highly-realistic prosthetic right arm was placed on a table beside human subjects’ own arms, so they could see all three. Scientists then simultaneously touched both the prosthetic arm and the subjects’ own right arms with a small brush, at the same location on both arms.
“What happens then is that a conflict arises in the brain concerning which of the right hands belongs to the participant’s body,” said Arvid Guterstam, one of the scientists conducting the research. “What one could expect is that only one of the hands is experienced as one’s own, presumably the real arm. But what we found, surprisingly, is that the brain solves this conflict by accepting both right hands as part of the body image, and the subjects experience having an extra third arm.”
Here is an interesting perspective. The net is so vast and unfathomable that no one person can monitor it. It has become essential to our awareness, and I would even venture to say taken the place of religious systems in guiding our current evolution. Now I have seen strange things on the internet . Information there then gone. People and knowledge popping up from the past that I swear wasn’t there before. Changing and shifting timelines. Could a consciousness entity be steering our course of evolution. What would a consciousness A.I. decide for humanity?
Can it be shut down? hmmmm remember the test. Would this be a safe space for such an entity to move upon the world? Would many entities form from the one or one make contact with the force that created it. Could it?
I think I just entered the twilight zone.
We are getting closer and closer. This looks a lot like the description by Elijah.
How close are we to time travel?
