A couple of days ago I blogged about the discovery of "memory-wiping" enzymes and its implications for the topic of mind control. In that blog, I also made the connection between the mind and the universe, particularly the version of quantum theory called the "multiverse" hypothesis. I've long sensed that there is a connection between the mind and matter, and that this connection is not of the tidy Cartesian variety, where the one (take your choice) gives rise to the other. I suspect, and have suspected for some time, that the situation is rather than of a complex set of feedback loops between the two, and that in that situation, that complexity can only be described by something "not physical" in the ordinary, three dimensional sense of our everyday experience.

Thus, when Mr. M.H. shared this article this week, I took notice:

Brain Architecture: Scientists Discover 11 Dimensional Structures That Could Help Us Understand How the Brain Works

The following paragraphs leapt out at me:

Scientists studying the brain have discovered that the organ operates on up to 11 different dimensions, creating multiverse-like structures that are “a world we had never imagined.”

By using an advanced mathematical system, researchers were able to uncover architectural structures that appears when the brain has to process information, before they disintegrate into nothing.


In the latest study, researchers honed in on the neural network structures within the brain using algebraic topology—a system used to describe networks with constantly changing spaces and structures. This is the first time this branch of math has been applied to neuroscience.

"Algebraic topology is like a telescope and microscope at the same time. It can zoom into networks to find hidden structures—the trees in the forest—and see the empty spaces—the clearings—all at the same time," study author Kathryn Hess said in a statement.

In the study, researchers carried out multiple tests on virtual brain tissue to find brain structures that would never appear just by chance.

"We found a world that we had never imagined. There are tens of millions of these objects even in a small speck of the brain, up through seven dimensions. In some networks, we even found structures with up to eleven dimensions."

The findings indicate the brain processes stimuli by creating these complex cliques and cavities, so the next step will be to find out whether or not our ability to perform complicated tasks requires the creation of these multi-dimensional structures.


Hess says the findings suggest that when we examine brain activity with low-dimensional representations, we only get a shadow of the real activity taking place. This means we can see some information, but not the full picture. “So, in a sense our discoveries may explain why it has been so hard to understand the relation between brain structure and function,” she explains.

Talk about high octane! Let that sink in for a moment: at every moment you are thinking, multi-dimensional structures arise in your very three dimensional brain, and that's a fancy way of saying your brain is not closed within or upon itself, but is rather an open system interacting with much higher dimensional realities that cannot be encompassed in the material 3-d world. And this is why, using a merely three-dimensional model, or, if I may be more blunt, a merely materialistic model of the mind-brain relationship, has failed to grasp the complexity, the hyper-dimensional complexity, of what is actually going on. Indeed, higher order topologies are necessary to describe thought at all: thought does not occur in the three dimensional material stuff of life solely or exclusively, but outside it, as something coupled with it. (Regular readers of my books will recognize this as what I've been calling the Topological Metaphor of the Medium, and its analogical basis.) For those who've read my books Secrets of the Unified Field or The Third Way, the name of Gabriel Kron should also spring to mind, with his theory that all electrical circuits, no matter how simple they are, are in effect hyper-dimensional machines, transducing something "down here" from "up there".

What is interesting in this article is also the implication of the object or stimulus of brain activity: for consider what that object is, in physics terms. Even at the atomic or, better, sub-atomic quantum level, these "material" entities dissolve - if I may use that term - into packets of information modeled by multi-dimensional mathematical equations. In other words, multi-dimensionality is the bridge of perception because the multi-dimensionality is at the root of the objects themselves.

What's coming down the pike? Well, I've speculated at length about this idea in our numerous members' vidchats (along with some pretty stimulating speculations from members themselves): the next step is to find the exact nature and structure of those "feedback" loops between the "material" world and the "incorporeal" one: think "quantum neurology" and "neuro-cosmology" for a moment, and you get an intuitive approximation of how the old, tidy, Cartesian dualistic lines are breaking down. We are, I rather suspect, looking at something more akin to the old Neoplatonic spectrum of "fine gradations" from the immaterial world of forms to the increasingly "dense" world of matter.

Funny thing, too, to remember that Plato referred to all of this as "the mathematicals". Funny thing, too, that in membrane theory, space-time is in 11 dimensions.

See you on the flip side...


  1. Enki said “when we created man he shall have spirit”, and there you have it.
    He’s talking about our consciousness, and that it’s connected to the universe.
    The brain is there to make all the parts work, arms legs etc, but everything else, mind, memory is not in our heads.

  2. I’ve suspected something along these lines. It has evolved in my “thinking” as the only way to approach perception. And perception is very encompassing. I’ve dealt with apparent hallucinations that I knew were present; but could only be perceived thru “perception keys”[conjured up through experience(use)]. A “natural” ability that has atrophied by purposed-ruling-paradigms brought on millenniums ago. Apparently many indigenous tribes today, and in the past have used plants to induce bridges to carry one’s mind[with the guidance a of a shaman].

    1. There is much red meat to chew on here within these so-called dimensions. For even those are conjured up from nothing. For here is truly through the looking glass of infinities beyond imaginations.
      But before getting to carried away…
      Wherefore cometh this “mind/thought/brain”?
      I think not.
      Is the key in the DNA?
      Was the DNA altered by other interested parties?
      Did they enhance; or, otherwise impede our possibilities/horizons?

      1. And why is the mind so malleable, so plastic; yet, able to break-away from programmed straightjacketed thought processes?
        A why is it that AI is able to bridge the same looking glass universe? Or, is it?

  3. And surprise, not really, close relatives of platonic solids in the original paper.

    Also the idea that this is limited to the brain is silly. But a place to start.

  4. An interesting choice for the picture on this article about an 11 Dimensional Multiverse of the Brain.
    I see a 1960s era Mopar gasoline V-8 with a dual quad carbs on a tunnel ram intake and exhaust headers.
    Truly an analog machine.
    I’m not quite sure what his hand is connected to in the engine? Throttle, maybe?
    Maybe I’m just an oddball among your members, but listening to this motor going from a loping idle to full song at WOT would be a religious experience for me.
    I’m sure a few extra dimensions would open up in my skull.

    1. It is a cool-looking motor, innit? It appears to me to be a small block Chevy, based on the position of the exhaust ports. The distributor on the venerable Mouse is, of course, positioned near the firewall, not toward the radiator. So this thing is some sort of photoshopped Frankenmotor. But it sounds AWESOME in my head.

  5. This brings up the question can awareness and body be truly separated in the end. And should the body be disparaged as it has been in down the ages but accepted as part of life. Maybe if this issue can finally be settled much of the chaos that has bedeviled humanity end.

    1. CERN/BRAIN ALERT. Thanks for the link, I take back what I said about this apparently not being weaponised. The first author of the paper is connected with the Swiss “Blue Brain Project”, which has been officially defined as a “CERN for the brain”…

  6. Dr. F,

    Does this not give rise to the possibility that certain religious beliefs—perhaps Gnostics’ or Cathars’—that held that the spiritual being is trapped in the corporal body has a basis in truth via HD physics?

    Further, that such belief systems / religions could be collective memories from a point in pre-cataclysm high antiquity when various branches knowledge were unified (e.g., math, physics, theology, etc.), a la Hamlet’s Mill?

    1. I was reading up on Gnostics last..? weekend probably. I had made a throwaway comment to the husband about the Usual Suspects, aka the PTB, along the lines of their race having been taken over by some malevolent power outside our basic dimensions. He instantly said, ‘That’s not IMpossible, there’s always the arcon (sp.) idea.’
      So having no clue, it was in to the www and out popped a fascinating rundown on some Gnostic-ish site on that exact possibility. (In my current frame of mind, *probability*. All the overt and occult signs are there.)

      I often wonder what I’m doing in such a mathematically inclusive site as this, (being totally dyscalculaic) but there is an odd mental acuity (synesthesia) which forms visuals apropos of nothing but words whether I like it or not. So reading D.JPF’s books for example, wasn’t a huge feat- the words formed the imagery which in turn formed colourful, refined dimensions of comprehension.
      And it works both ways- the mind will create an answer visually, borrowing from many different complexities in mind, and the words have to figure out the best way to describe it. These words come fluently as long as I don’t try and be clever. And as long as I don’t have to dumb-down…
      Helps out with the fine art if nothing else. And formulating answers on the state of the world appropriate for an 8yr old child… though the latter is helped with pen and paper for certain.

  7. Isn’t it strange during meditation we strive for NO thought, which then opens up the topological dimensions. Why is it that when we quiet our thoughts and those electrical synapses in our brains, it opens up new pathways?

  8. Where does mind reside? EveryWhenWhere. The 11th dem is a singularity or common point, as it were. At least, from our frame of reference.
    On creation; If one projects forward our universal fate, then we end up with a soup of subspace almost particles. The same no structure that M theory predicts as a universal start.
    I propose, that during creation, the M theory “membrains”, did there thing, and sparked, not a big bang, but instead, caused, all of the hydrogen, to “Fall” out of suspension, all across the universe. From that point, then all common math, and science should follow, the laws that we know today. Just minus the inflation model. No big bang, no inflation.
    Playing with the dual slit problems of time travel and such, is not easy to visualize, but if one understands that subspace/Q space/eather/whatever, has notime/ nostruture, then it’s a tad easier to understand, things like, spooky action at a distance, paranormal, and informational download.
    My big question today seems to be; Do photons travel or appear? Entanglement seems to indicate: appear.
    Thanks Joseph, and see ya on the flip side.

  9. Fascinating stuff, but well beyond my (remembered) mathematical pay-grade. To give a layman’s response, here are a few things I have noted in my long interactions with Otherwhere/Otherwhom which are ‘evidence’ of interconnectedness and feedback:

    First, there is immense ‘communications-value’ with higher states/beings using symbols and transformations. Time after time, I would get ‘you would not understand it’ from Above. When I insisted, I would get a ‘kinda, sorta’ down-translation that would capture the essence of the experience. “Oh!” moments of understanding. Not exact ‘mathematical equivalents’ but ‘symbolic equivalents’. Very useful for communication, both in down-translation and in up-translation….

    Also, the brain ‘makes stuff up’ when it has nothing in the file about totally-new experiences. If 3D-you is ‘viewing’ something that exists on a higher plane (or a higher being), the brain will ‘slot-in’ something from its 3D memory-bank that it considers ‘close’. (IMHO, that is why NDEers ‘see’ whomever is their religious central-figure: Christians see Jesus, Hindus see Shiva/Krishna/etc, Islamics see Mohammad, and so on. SOME higher being is ‘there’, and the brain ‘slots-in’ what is half-expected.) Once you know that, you can ‘reverse engineer’ what it likely is, rather than getting-lost in the ‘literality’ of what you are supposedly seeing. Then, you can give ‘useful’ feedback to Otherwhere/Otherwhom. Communication occurs ‘in spite of’ the brain, so to speak…

    (I consciously use the ‘example’ from “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” of Sisko having conversations with the Wormhole beings. They were obviously incorporeal beings who had no physical form. But somehow, those beings ‘projected’ themselves into Sisko’s brain as people from his life. A ‘communications bridge’ was built…)

    ‘Intuition’ is often down-processing of higher senses. If you were lucky-enough to be born in a lineage where ESP-ish abilities were not only allowed but had their own ‘language’ (not a verbal language), you probably get direct-cognition of whatever ‘signal’ you are receiving. If not, it gets ‘smeared-out’ into something like do-(or don’t-do)-this, or this-is-(or is-not)-right, or I-trust-(or don’t-trust)-this-person, etc. We can’t put a finger on it, but it has a ‘basis’ we do trust. (It can also work the other way, as this ‘knowing’ can be used to cue or clue-in some aspect that an Otherwhere being has overlooked. Upwards ‘feedback’…)

    Other times, there is direct ‘intervention’ from Above. I can give a personal example. Long ago, in trying to choose what discipline I wanted to study in college, I had gone the usual route of personality tests, studying of options, weighing choices, etc. I had just come to the intellectual conclusion that I would study Chemical Engineering. Then, there was a clear ‘voice’ in my head that said, “No. Aerospace Engineering.” Clear and strong, just like someone was talking to me. And, upon much-later reflection, the really surprising thing was that I just mentally said ‘Yeah, okay.’ No arguments, no doubts, no fear. Just flat acceptance. Pretty profound…

    In short, it seems like we 3D types can find methods to influence higher types/realms, and the over-3D types can find methods to influence us. Sounds like a “complex set of feedback loops” to me…

    1. If social contract is calculated into the equation, then there is need of more operators. Perhaps society is not a social construction. Perhaps society is a higher dimensional being. Consequently, nations are natural, and empires not.

      Number of dimensions is a political issue. Some say nations do not exist, and if they do not exist, that would take away the “folk soul” from the equation. Social engineering is slavery. Mr.Dale Cooper in Twin Peaks breaks the casino.

    2. Symbolism is one of THE keys,
      for it communicates on a level that cuts-to-the-chase.
      That, coupled w/synchronicity.
      That gets the motor/warp drive revving-up…

      1. *** I think you are on to something, goshawks…
        And it IS absolutely fascinating!

        Sure would be interesting to see what Joseph would say about it. Maybe you should send it in as a question/comment for vidchat?

  10. The Druid rune system has “32” dimensions to describe the gradual complexity of human incarnation. At some point transcendence happens. Then it becomes natural to say, “as inside as outside” and “as above so below”.

    Pyramid is the basic operator in human incarnation. Pyramid defines cycles within cycles etc. If Zodiac is software and pyramid is hardware, then the analogue computer of the Atlanteans is defined, and transformed into language as Yahweh.

    “In the end there is a new beginning. We all start out in the end.” – Inspector Morse.

      1. The bird’s eye on the dollar bill is a rebus. It tells you to look at the pyramid from above. What you see is a fourfold principle of year, unified in the capstone. Tradition calls Yahweh a tetragrammaton, and that alludes to a fourfold principle. An acronym for year could be “SAWS” (summer-autumn-winter-spring). My question is, if Yahweh is a similar acronym for the fourfold principle of the pyramid? Time will show.

        The trick is to view the cycle of year as an general allegory for ALL transitions in life. Thus the basic fourfold principle is repeated eight times through a lifespan. Thus we arrive at 32. This is basically the Druid rune sequence from cradle to grave. Lifespan is also fourfold: “child, youth, man, wisdom” corresponding to the elements: “fire, earth. water and air”.

        The pyramid building becomes an analogue computer in the language. When I started to study the runes three years ago, I never thought I would become a pyramid-builder. But that is exactly what the Druid runes are all about. The last rune makes a logical transition to the first rune, closing the circle. Thus reincarnation is a closed system.

        The graphical rune font is not significant. It is invented in early Middle Ages, inspired by the Coelbren-alphabet. But the ideas contained are much older indeed. From my perspective, life span has 32 dimensions, and anything less is a hoax. Because, a union with the soul of your people, is what builds a great nation. He was nailed to a cross for that.

    1. Given the there seems to be 11-dimensional objects in the brain and that there are “branes” (yes, phonetic analogs evoke resonance and association) in 11-dimensional M-theory, passages in John 10 springs to mind:

      I and my Father are one

      that the Father is in me, and I in him

        1. Or, If one likes, a song Verse. “Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication.” Key word on Mass. Higgs. The universe talks to us all the time. But humans are noisy and bound into the “Day to Day”. Isolation helps with clearing said noise.

  11. A lot of “senior scientists” will have to get back to the drawing board. Or maybe get another job.
    And at least in this particular case, there is no assurance that their research will have “practical applications” such as causing the blind to see and the lame to walk – which is usually just code to say that it is being weaponized.
