Discovery of quantum vibrations in 'microtubules' inside brain neurons supports controversial theory of consciousness
A review and update of a controversial 20-year-old theory of consciousness published in Physics of Life Reviews claims that consciousness derives from deeper level, finer scale activities inside brain neurons. The recent discovery of quantum vibrations in "microtubules" inside brain neurons corroborates this theory, according to review authors Stuart Hameroff and Sir Roger Penrose. They suggest that EEG rhythms (brain waves) also derive from deeper level microtubule vibrations, and that from a practical standpoint, treating brain microtubule vibrations could benefit a host of mental, neurological, and cognitive conditions. Orch OR was harshly criticized from its inception, as the brain was considered too "warm, wet, and noisy" for seemingly delicate quantum processes.. However, evidence has now shown warm quantum coherence in plant photosynthesis, bird brain navigation, our sense of smell, and brain microtubules. An important new facet of the theory is introduced.

Here’s Why You Should Convert Your Music To 432 Hz “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla “What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” – Albert Einstein Tesla said it. Einstein Agreed. Neuroscience explains why ISIS attracts psychopaths AFP/Welayat Homs/AFP - An Austrian Islamic State (IS) group fighter, identified as Mohamed Mahmoud (R) (aka Abu Usama al-Gharib), and his German comrade, named in the video as Abu Omar al-Alamani, speaking in German prior to executing two non-identified men The militant Islamist group known as ISIS is more than just an organization with an ideology that is different from our own. This is a group that has regularly carried out or inspired attacks that have massacred large numbers of innocent civilians in places like France, Turkey, Mali, and now, the United States. Additionally, ISIS has released a number of videos that clearly show members beheading people in the most gruesome and barbaric manner thinkable. As such, it has become increasingly apparent that we are dealing with a group of homicidal and suicidal maniacs with a severely warped moral and ethical code. Our brains are essentially biological computers.

Seven Ways How Music Benefits your Health Music touches our hearts and resonates with our soul “I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.” ~ Billy Joel All seeing eye signs (people) All seeing eye signs (people) Symbolism Horus [Complete set of subtle and not so subtle 'All-Seeing'Satanic/Lucifer Eye of Horus.

Best and Worst of Neuroscience and Neurology – November 2015 Maybe this is just a reflection of the annual funding cycle, but it is common to see a lot of high quality publications towards the end of year. And as the end of 2015 is approaching, choosing the most interesting articles for this review becomes a more challenging task. Here, I’m presenting only few of the studies that are worth talking about. As usual, the choice of article for inclusion mostly reflects my personal opinion about their significance. This month, scientific community marked the birthdays of two scientists: Charles Scott Sherrington and Edgar Adrian. Fact Sheet: BRAIN Initiative The White House Office of the Press Secretary For Immediate Release April 02, 2013 “If we want to make the best products, we also have to invest in the best ideas...

Spiritual Growth and Psychic Development In view of the considerable attention and publicity currently being given to psychism, it will be found beneficial to review the Rosicrucian Fellowship Teachings concerning this phenomenon, and thus to understand why these Teachings emphasize the superiority of positive spiritual growth over negative psychic development. Two Classes of Sensitives As far as the growth of so-called extra-sensory faculties is concerned, humanity is divided into two general categories.

Stunning Photographs of Alcohol Under a Microscope You might not know it, but your favorite beer, wine, spirit, cocktail or mixer is a truly magnificent sight to behold. Thanks to the good people at BevShots the next time you spill your drink and someone tells you that you’ve had a bit too much, then kindly inform them that you’re making beautiful art. That’s what the company known as BevShots does at least, they photograph all types of drinks under a microscope and sell it as art. Revolutionary Neuroscience Technique Slated for Human Clinical Trials A technique called optogenetics has transformed neuroscience during the past 10 years by allowing researchers to turn specific neurons on and off in experimental animals. By flipping these neural switches, it has provided clues about which brain pathways are involved in diseases like depression and obsessive-compulsive disorder. “Optogenetics is not just a flash in the pan,” says neuroscientist Robert Gereau of Washington University in Saint Louis.

Focus Sessions: Spiritual 5:26 I get this question a lot, so I thought I would do an entry... Tapping into intuition or psychic ability is unique to everyone, but I will share some of the things I see / get. I first want to say that everyone has a certain amount of ability, it just comes easier for some people to tune into it. The example I was given as I started to learn was everyone can sign, but some are natural opera singers while others really have to work at it. Some people are also better at certain things than others, for example, I have never resonated with channeling (I am fine with mediumship, but channeling feels too intense and I shut down), but for some people they may be so gifted in that area that they gravitate to it. You really have to play around (in a responsible manner) with it to see what resonates with you.

Maya Codices - The Dresden Codex 1. In 1810, Alexander von Humboldt published "Vues des Cordillères". This work includes pp. 47, 48, 50, 51, 52 of the Dresden in a beautiful, though somewhat not–completely–accurate, color rendition. I’ve seen copies of this book on sale for as much as $93,000, and for as little as $25,000, so it is a bit pricey, and quite a collector's item. Neverthless, a color copy of these Dresden Codex pages as shown in Humboldt's volume is archived at: 2. Keep pot away from teens, researchers urge Turns out getting stoned on marijuana carries much more dire consequences for teenagers than for adults -- at least if you're a rat and part of a new study released Monday by researchers in London. Researchers at Western University’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry have published a study that shows that the psychoactive component of marijuana caused long-term harm on the adolescent brains of rats, producing changes similar to what is found in schizophrenia. “Adolescence is a critical period of brain development and the adolescent brain is particularly vulnerable,” said Steven Laviolette, a professor in the departments of anatomy and cell biology, and psychiatry.
