So can science explain my astral projections as a child? It can't and never will be able. Why? Because consciousness does not originate from the material world. Unfortunately, modern science has been reduced to materialism.
I think it is a misunderstanding that science treats consciousness as a physical thing. Most scientists would say consciousness is an emergent property of certain complex processes, and by definition non physical/material. Because consciousness is not physical it can not be explained with energy or matter which are both physical. Concussiness is better explained with abstract idea like math, physics, and psychology. It's less about what part of the brain is responsible for conciousness but rather what processes are essential for conciousness to emerge.
It could but if you read the paper, they wanted to find if they shut off language and speech instead of consciousness. Turns our it was actually consciousness. The hippocampus and claustrum have different functions. If the hippocampus affected the experiment I would assume it is so minute it can be ignored
+TishoYanchev Open your hand in front of you and look at it for a while. Now imagine yourself slapping your face with it. Now decide whether this is something you will or will not do. What ever you decided, that is consciousness, it is the essence and force that you are that enables you to fire off the information in your brain. Without it, the information wouldn't be collected, and it wouldn't be used. You would be no more useful than a pet rock. Time passes and every cell in your body gets replaced with new ones, you age, everything changes. The one thing that is not changed by time is your awareness, your experience as an observer inside a vesel, even if memories are forgotten, you are still aware of the moment. The brain is intertwined with consciousness to give us this experience of humanity, but what we really are is that essence, that simple awareness. When the brain dies, that essence which we are, moves on to the unified field to experience what we would call an afterlife, but soon enough it wil somehow find a body to carry it back into this world. We are here for the adventure, we are timeless, but we don't yet know it.
+erasmusso The brain consist and operate based on 3 things - chemicals, information and electricty.
Humans and animals are nothing more than a huge amount of small bits of
information. Every action a person(or an animal) does is only an outcome of
an information connected with another information already existing or currently
obtained externally. That information is stored within the electrical impulses which operate thanks to the electricty.
When you obtain or create a new inforamtion, you store that information by
electrifying it. All the inforamtion in the brain is electrified. However,
what matters is the level or amount of the electrification. If you do not
often electrify an inforamtion, that electricty that holds that information
gets weaker and weaker, and eventually it weakans to an extend in which it
cannot be re-obtained anymore. Re-obtain means electrified to a level in which
you can act upon it, this is what peopl call ''remember''.
When you say, ''i just rememberd the name'', this means that you have
electrified that information to a level in which it can be acted upon, or to
put it more simply, you have ''re-obtained'' it.
What people call ''constionsness'' is all the currently ''re-obtained''
information, or i.e. all the inforamtion that is currnetly electrified to that
level. The rest of your information is what peopl call ''unconsness mind''.
What people call ''thinking'' means ''connecting inforamtion'.
When you obtain a new inforamtion through one of your sensors, that information imidlately gets connected with your information that you have. It connects with the currently re-obtained information, and the rest of your information that is not being currently re-obtain, as well.
When the inforamtion connects, it imidiately produces an outcome. That outcome can be a new inforamtion conbination, it can be an ''action'' or can be a chemical reaction.
When the connection between the currently obrtained inforation(i.e. the information you are just now obtaining through one of your sensors) and an
infrmaton that you haev but the electricty that hold it is too weak to be
re-obtained, produces an outcome, people don't know why are they doing what
what they are doing.
When someone say ''i know this is right, but i can't remember why'', this
means that, they have that information that tells them ''this is right'',
but the electricity that hold that information is too weak, the person
cannot re-botain it anmore, but he still has the inforamtion, and that
information still connects and creates that outcome.
People cannot control their process of information, the connection of the
inforamtion and the outcome it creates. We need to have a lot of
electricty, but even so, there is very little we can do to control the
connections of the information. We need to create some device or machine
which we can use to manipulate the information and electricity, otherwise, we will always be only slaves, an we cannot control our actions as they are only a mere outcome of the information that we have and the inforantion we obtain. The best thing we can do right now is to be very careful what inforamtion we obtain because that inforation will get stored.
What the people from the video have done, is to simple focus the electricty
into one single part, thus taking away the electrity from the rest of the
brain, and that is why there aws not enough electricty to electtrify any
ifnoramtion to a level it can be ''re-obtained''. This is what is happening
when you sleep. The level of electricty falls to a certain level, thus you
no longer obtain any new ifnoramtion, i.e. no inforamtion is being electrified
to a level that is ''re-obtained'', that is why you do not have ''concess'',
because simple the ifnormation is not electrified enough. The purpose of
sleeping is to re-charge your electricty. (on a related note: the reason why if you start thinking about something, you cannot fall in sleep, is exactly because of this. You are electrifying that information. The more you ''think'', meaning, the more you connect inforamtion, the more information gets electrified, thus you cannot fall in sleep. You need to stop connecting (=thinking) in order for the electricty to lower to a level in which no ifnoramton is electrified to a level that is ''re-obtained'').
What these people have done is very dangerous because i don't know how they estimated how much electricty to take away and focus, but if they had taken too much electricty, if the minimum amount of electricity needed to maintain and keep an information from vanishing is lowered further, then that
inforation will simple vanish as the electricty will weaken too much, so i.e.
if they take too much electricty from one part, all the inforamtion that
electricity had stored could vanish.
There are a lot more things about the brain, the information, the electricity
and the chemical reactions. I am currently working on a project, so i don't
have enogh time, however, once i finish with it, i plan on making a blog
and explain everthing about the brain, the inforamtion, the electricity,
the chemical raections and a lot more.
brain and consciousness are two different things, the woman's brain was still active meaning all her organs functioned normally, but her consciousness has stopped, which is her ability to process and respond to information or external stimuli collected by the brain
+0cards0 .......I'm giving you one more chance. I actually care and can't bring myself to ignore your ignorance. I will PM you information that goes against matter based science that makes you an object.
Also they're my experiences that can't be explained by science. You won't accept them because you weren't around me.
+MALayhee700 Ok... i can see you... almost clearly..... you are siting in a basement..... but it is not dark.,..... i see a older woman bringing you something..... it looks like see is your mother.... see doesn't look happy... now she is telling you to get a fucking job..... well thats all i have seen.... dit i got it right !?
+MALayhee700 scientist confirmed the experiments as no fraud? what experiments? show me.
i know im not an object,objects are dead,im alive
im immatirial?what that means?
i didnt see any media that told me that i can be owned
get insane results of positive feedback for ESP? show me please
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
