NEW FORM OF COMMUNICATION IN THE BRAIN DISCOVERED

Ms. M.W. spotted this one and passed it along, and it's one of those "quiet articles" that when one thinks about it, it turns out to be huge with implications, for there's something in here that caught my eye that I have to speculate about. (You know me by now: I never pass up an opportunity to walk off the end of the high octane speculation twig.) Here's the article

Neuroscientists Say They've Found an Entirely New Form of Neural Communication

What caught my eye was the opening paragraph, and a few other paragraphs that follow later in the article. Here's the opening paragraph:

Scientists think they've identified a previously unknown form of neural communication that self-propagates across brain tissue, and can leap wirelessly from neurons in one section of brain tissue to another – even if they've been surgically severed. (Emphasis added)

Later on, we get a bit more of an explanation that there is a kind of neural oscillation that takes place when we sleep, which conjured in my mind a kind of "longitudinal wave of information", rather like "zip" files flowing through the brain, being compressed and unzipped and compressed again. It's that "longitudinal wave" thing that captured my imagination when I read this:

What they found was that slow periodic activity can generate electric fields which in turn activate neighbouring cells, constituting a form of neural communication without chemical synaptic transmission or gap junctions.

"We've known about these waves for a long time, but no one knows their exact function and no one believed they could spontaneously propagate," Durand says.

"I've been studying the hippocampus, itself just one small part of the brain, for 40 years and it keeps surprising me."

This neural activity can actually be modulated - strengthened or blocked - by applying weak electrical fields and could be an analogue form of another cell communication method, called ephaptic coupling.

Electrical fields, a kind of "electrical coupling" and oscillations within the neurons, all capable of being modified by electrical fields. Now, if you're like me, the first thing you thought of was "mind manipulation", because the principle of many mind manipulation technologies involves precisely the manipulation of electrical fields around a brain. Additionally, as I pointed out in my last book Microcosm and Medium, the brain also broadcasts its brain wave activity, which can be "read" via means of what I called "electroencephalographic dictionaries" in the book.

But let's extend the speculation based on this new information. Might the brain be broadcasting some sort of longitudinal "information wave", and might ephaptic coupling actually be some biological form of quantum tunneling, or a kind of marco-quantum entanglement utilizing these types of "information waves"? If so, then this might form the basis for what the research of Dr. William Tiller discovered about the ability to imprint group intentionality not only upon material objects, but to imprint a field of information in a certain location. That would seem to open up all sorts of other possibilities that have long vexed researchers in the paranormal field, from remote viewing to telepathic phenomena. Finally, and most importantly, if all these speculations should bear fruit in relationship to this study, then it would appear that another step has been taken to distinguish the immaterial mind from the material and biological brain. We may in fact be looking at one of the mechanisms, or a part of the mechanism, joining the two.

Time, of course, will tell.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Research along :
    Autism telepathy
    astronaut telepathy
    quantum telepathy
    Qi Dong
    Chinese telepathic children (look in CIA libraries)
    Qi Dong Stargate

    Yep.. Astronaut’s will be autistic telepaths, kinda like the navigators in Dune but hopefully without the mutated bodies….

  2. Also along this line:
    https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-02-22/gene-edited-crispr-twins-may-have-supercharged-brains-and-silicon-valley-wants-it
    “In a controversial experiment led by Chinese scientist He Jiankui, the embryos of seven couples had their genes ‘edited’ using a tool known as CRISPR. By removing a gene called CCR5, He sought to create a natural immunity to HIV – which requires CCR5 to enter blood cells.

    In 2016, Silva and professor Miou Zhou of the Western University of Health Sciences in California showed that removing the CCR5 gene from mice significantly improved their memory. Moreover, ‘Silva and a large team from the US and Israel say they have new proof that CCR5 acts as a suppressor of memories and synaptic connections,’ according to the report.”

    Hmmm. Move along; nothing to see here…

  3. How about, the entire Universe is a “field” & each of us is a fractal of that whole?
    I was intrigued by Dr. Richard Alan Miller talking about being able to control certain neurotransmitters in our brains. He used to train Navy Seals & I assume, teach them “mind over matter” in a real sense & thus have the ability to face impossible situations. So….apparently, it is possible to train your own brain!

    The real ‘ME’ is connected to the Universal Field & has nothing to do with this meatsuit!! If we come at things from the angle that each of us is already an Eternal, Sovereign Being …..that puts a whole new “slant” on things!!

    1. we’re each a different facet of the same stone? in some holographic fractal way?
      that’s a cool thought. especially when we all think it.

      brings to mind a thought on religion / philosophy / belief system / whatever. would a voluntary consensus system work? no imposing you belief on anyone until everyone believes it voluntarily. stressing the consensual in consensus. or would that just devolve into issues inherent in consensus science.

      did i just redefine the contrast between science and philosophy? one is about belief of how the universe works? the other is about testing or disbelief and disproving of how the universe works?

  4. Norwegian communists have placed an embargo on Brain Force Plus, because it contains Theobromine.

    My neurons cannot connect dots without it, so the Runic research is being sabotaged by Norwegian communists.

    I guess I can make use of “lutefisk and lefse” instead, but it not the same rocket fuel, that Alex Jones is brewing.

  5. Joseph: “Might the brain be broadcasting some sort of longitudinal “information wave”, and might ephaptic coupling actually be some biological form of quantum tunneling, or a kind of macro-quantum entanglement utilizing these types of ‘information waves’?

    Hmmm. Sounds like a fair description of Rupert Sheldrake’s Morphogenetic Fields to me… (Not to mention the Hundredth Monkey phenomenon.)

  6. Another post about the scientists being caught with their pants down. And these dunces are promoting artificial intelligence when they don’t even understand or know how their own minds work hubris.

    1. yeh right. and they’re showing us tech that’s how old?

      btw, speaking of pants down, what’s up with robt kraft? thought that guy was an upstanding power player for the country who must not be named. how is it someone who runs in those power circles got nabbed and herded in with the commoners? and then the rt news article goes on to speculate about the working conditions of the workers at the salon?

  7. Does telepathy, telekinesis etc etc etc actually exist? In a word, yes. If you haven’t experienced one of them, then you would probably think otherwise. It seems that most people are sceptical until they experience one or the other. I have experienced telepathy, and was near (long story) to a telekinetic event so I’m pretty sure they are real.

    Anyhow, I read recently … somewhere on the internet (isn’t that always the way?) … that neurons in the brain also can give out light signals ie photons. So the brain has a wide variety of communication mechanisms, it seems.

    But telepathy etc doesn’t exist does it Mr Randy?? Nahhh ….

    1. nice p. skepticism can tunnelvision the viewer (or nonviewer as the case may be). in my case skepticism isn’t the problem. density of my medium is.

      so dyu really think the gizars are going to sit here and let you slide on your long story teaser?

  8. Before I even begin to read about this alleged new form of communication I encountered some strangeness when posting a few[8 to be exact] comments earlier on News & Views. One took. Yet I had to log in again anyhoo.
    So I’m primed, for sytrangeness.

    1. First off they’re an infinite number and means of communicating; either at a group level and/or an individual level[back to start reading the second paragraph].
      “What caught my eye was the first paragraph”. Just as your post’s 1st paragraph caught mine; before I could even start the second[I post as I read].
      Yes! Loved it. But they threw in a purposed misdirection: “surgically severed”. What B.S.!
      to continue reading…
      O.K. read it all.
      Too bad. They were onto something; but missed the real luxury liner, and ended up on the slow boat to China.
      THE communication, as in THE detective
      [No, mon ami, I’m no a detective. I’m THE detective.
      THE communication is non local. It’s faster than instantaneous. It’s extremely individual and; at the same time, universal. It’s real magic! In other words, truly spiritual in the living sense.
      How to exoplain the unexplainable?

      I loathe the science that wants to put this on a laboratory bench and try to piece it together. They miss the ever-present luxury liner – for a slow boat to China, by way of the Island of D. Moreau; where they’re b[r]eached for eternity.

      1. In keeping w/the strangeness theme of today.
        ZDB, in a recent Frankenstein Science post you mentioned crows. Well, I just started reading,
        Hollow Kingdom: A novel by Kira jane Buxton.

        It’s about S.T. a domesticated crow, a bird of simple pleasures when something isn’t quite right starts to launch S.T. on a quest to save humanity from extinction. Where even a cowardly crow can become a hero.
        By the way, it’s also a LOL! comedy.
        It’s a hoot.
        I’m on chapter 3.

        1. ha. too easy to confuse any number of thought processes as indicative of intelligence or it’s lack. hence it’s easy to misunderestimate gw bush or his owners rottenchilders.

          goals are evidenced by strategy which is evidenced by tactics. at certain levels of power, results can be judged as goals, regardless of excuses to the contrary. ever feel like the media is programming humanity similarly to how these crows work the cats?

          and then there’s the ability to infer
          https://www.wired.com/story/what-a-border-collie-taught-a-linguist-about-language/
          rico was the first proven to infer meanings and names. i first saw a border/lab learn spellings and names for things while we were trying to hide meanings. we never did come up with a word for walk she couldn’t learn in two perambulations. finally settled on sign language where she couldn’t see us.

          washoe the first asl signing chimp did that decades ago when she made her first sentence. roger fouts book is excellent.

          wish i’d had time to learn more about work done (good work done) with dolphins and octupi. amazing intellects.

          that’s what baffles me about the apparent intent demonstrated for generations by royals and banksters. how is the current queen wise enough to foster and help monty roberts and jan fennell while still leading humanity as she does?

        2. oops. got too bold with those links

          Your comment is awaiting mod eration.

          1. btw, will take a look at that book asap. meanwhile ya might wanna read everything gary paulsen wrote. no worries on that one. he writes short for middle school kids. don’t think it’ll be easy though. you’ll be willing to surgically remove your heart and mail it to him before you get 2 maybe 3 chapters in. he’s got proof repeatedly that dogs do too talk back. i’ve seen it for 6 generations of dogs now. wanna see evidence of it, look no further than your own dog across a field when he comes across something and looks back to make sure you’re in on his find and he sees you weren’t paying attention. or when he plays a joke and hides something on you and you completely ignore him.

            ok, now i’m going.

            Doc (and anyone else capable). play hide and seek with shilo. start small and easy and work your way up. it’s a favorite game and comes in crazy handy when the human is sick and the dog needs to play. the fridge is the toughest hiding place (no smells and never used).

  9. My first thought when I read the original article about a week ago was “could this be part of why telepathy works?” Then I thought – “but then how does that work long distance?”

    Your speculations on entanglement might explain that.

    Very much to think about here….

  10. Funny it should mention dreaming, it’s long been a contention of mine that when we sleep we dream in wave form and when we awake it collapses into particle reality, which is why we cannot remember or make sense of our dreams upon waking.

    Interesting that myelination is inhibited during ephaptic coupling, which is obviously the slower biological system of cell communication. Demyelination leads to major disease processes in the body, such as MS. A hallmark of MS is heightened psychic phenomena, just sayin’!

        1. Love your butterfly!

          As you probably know, I was referring to the famous Chuang Chow – who dreamt he was a butterfly. When he awakened was he a man again? He didn’t know – if he was a man that was dreaming he was a butterfly; or, whether he was now a butterfly dreaming he was a man.

    1. I didn’t know that about MS patients. Thanks!
      Maybe this discovery brings us a bit closer to understanding ESP, Remote Viewing, Precognition, Ability to communicate with “dead” spirits. Might be the window to other dimensions. I like your comment on dreams and think it’s quite feasible.

      1. Thanks Westcoaster, if you are not already a member, I asked Joseph as vidchat question regarding my comment on dreams. It makes for a great listen, honestly, check it out.
