The Quantum Mechanics of Consciousness & its Effects on the Brain
When looking to understand the subatomic relationship between parents and children, it helps by starting with the quantum mechanics behind the brain’s function. This article focuses on the quantum mechanics behind brain function and how it affects the consciousness and perception; which may help to explain the physical responses particles trigger when reacting to stress or sensory stimuli. It may help me to better understand how parents and their offspring receive telepathic links of emotional distress during moments of extreme stress or trauma, and/or how children automatically pick up parental mannerisms, traits, and characteristics even if they have never met the parent.
A Quick Glimpse into the Subatomic Levels of the Brain
The brain is composed of 1.3kg of grey matter, which is the part of the brain that processes information. It is made up of neuronal cell bodies (neurons) that actually carry the signals the brain receives to one another. Neurons behave much like a computer’s transistor circuits do, in that all of them are interconnected. In total there are trillions of these neuronal connections throughout the brain. Each of these neurons communicate by transmitting electrical signals to each other. Unlike transistor circuits in a computer, the brain’s electrical pulses are transmitted by ion movement, which are heavier than electrons and this causes them to move much slower than general electrical circuits. Unlike the computer’s electrical circuits, the brain interprets the signals it gets by using the body’s sensory system and creating images which are what provide each person with their interpretation of reality. The senses themselves are connected to the brain through the central nervous system.
The quantum levels of brain function is mostly focused on the speed at which information is transmitted. For example; one perceptual event (if its speed was calculated on a computer) would take longer than the universe’s age to perform all the necessary calculations. What this means is that the only way a computer could keep up with the brain’s speed in creating that singular perception, (such as, that the sun is hot) is if the computer could calculate any and all possible combinations of information arrangement needed to reach that conclusion, simultaneously. This information arrangement would include every minute detail, including the unperceived to the senses like molecular and quantum considerations. This is viewed basically as ‘the speed of thought,’ which relatively cannot reconcile yet as thought cannot be observed or perceived, so the ‘speed’ at which thought travels is currently unmeasurable. What can be observed however, is the speed that the brain’s electrical pulses move (accounting for the body’s involuntary movements), which is 120 mps.
How the Brain Creates Perception
Having learned how fast the brain calculates information needed to form perception, it would be a good idea to view how the brain creates the perception after the information is processed. This very topic was covered by Walter J. Freeman (professor of Neurobiology, University of California, Berkeley) and his colleagues in a paper “The Physiology of Perception.”
The paper explained how perception depends on the “simultaneous, cooperative activity of millions of neurons spread throughout expanses of the cortex.” during their research, Freeman and his colleagues concentrated on how neurons of the olfractory system enacted the properties of data they collected in determining one sensory perception from another. The example used focused on the sense of smell. It basically explains that when a person sniffs something with an odor, molecules that carry the scent are picked up by a group of neurons that exist in the nasal passages. These receptor neurons specialize in the type of odor they respond to.
Next, the cells excite pulses that propagate through axons (part of the nerve cells that conduct pulses) to the part of the brain called the olfactory cortex, commonly called the olfactory bulb. How many receptors get activated by the odor tells you how much stimuli they received and the location in the nose that received them alerts the brain to the nature of the odor. Once the bulb receives the data, it analyzes individual input patterns to create its own message; which axons then transmit to another part of the olfactory system in the cortex. The new signals created then get sent to other parts of the brain that communicate with various other sensory systems to decide on the perception that each person will experience. Each perception will be unique to each individual. Basically, a rose smells different, and is perceived by each person differently.
IF you apply this reasoning on perception to each sensory system and each person, the implication is that individual perception is determined by separate factors that are unique to each individual. When trying to decide if the subatomic experience of relationships between parents and children can be affected dramatically through individual perceptions, the implication is yes. As mentioned above, the perception of each individual, as created by the communication between the sensory system and the olfactory bulb may aid in explaining why parents and children may share a similar reaction to various sensory stimuli. While some perceptions can be shaped by the parent through taught responses, cellular generation appears to be the only factor that separates the subatomic from the biological properties that make up a separate human body. The other implication is that memory from the entangled particles that are transferred from parent to child could be a determining factor as well.
Particle Entanglement and Quantum Memory
Knowing that cells are made of molecules, molecules are made of atoms and atoms are made of electrons, protons, and neutrons; we know that these particles are evident in every human being, and are present at the moment of conception. What is more interesting is the source of those particles contained in each person, the source naturally being contained within the parents.
Having given brief explanations into the subatomic properties of the brain and how it transmits information and creates individual perception, it is my belief that certain aspects of data that are extracted from the parents particles are retained as qunatum memory to the children through entanglement. Children exhibit similar mannerisms and sensory preferences of parents they may not even have contact with during their lifetimes. Bell’s theorem on particle entanglement postulates that once particles interact with one another physically, they are permanently linked. This link is maintained regardless of their proximity to one another.
Another aspect of particle behavior that is worth looking at is the manner that a particle spins, which may also be affected by Bell’s Theorem. For example, two particles have interacted with one another, and have communicated. Now they will forever do this, meaning that they will either do the exact same thing at the same time or they will do the exact opposite thing at the same time…..forever. This is also reflected in how the particles will spin, which is important in how they become attracted to one another within the human body. The particles are attracted to one another through one of the four known forces in the universe. In the human body, I believe the force is electromagnetism. The manner of their spin determines how much of that force is used.
I cannot help wondering if it is the electromagnetic force used in the human body is what decides how the brain’s electrical pulses are distributed and how much force is used in doing so, which would make it the deciding factor on how much stimuli the sensory system receives from the receptors when applying an action such as smelling something as in the example above. It may also be a factor is deciding how an individual might respond to this stimulation. The premise here is that the particle itself contains memory ifrom the parent and then applies that ‘quantum memory’ to the child when interacting within the child’s body. These memories or memory fragments may impact how much stimuli is recorded by the child’s receptors and then sent through the sensory system to be perceived by the child’s brain. I also believe that many of these quantum memories may be ‘erased’ or ‘hidden’ once the development of biological components occurs during the gestational period after conception. This may be why the child retains some memories, mannerisms, behavioral responses, or characteristics and not others.
In trying to decipher what really happens on a quantum level during the entire gestational process, naturally I would have to be able to observe particle behavior in a human being from conception to birth, but I would also have to be present to see if the particles’ behavior is altered when perception on any given thing changes in the child, and if those changes occur in the biological functions alone, such as those located throughout the sensory system, such as happens when a child’s tastes are altered when entering into adulthood.
Approaching the Mind-Body Problem
Most people approach the mind/body connection by assuming that the consciousness is a by product of the brain or is created by the brain which is dominated by electrons, however; quantum physics suggests that the consciousness in humanity is related to the an electron’s awareness that is observable in the double split experiment (which showed that particles can act as both a wave and a particle—with and without mass). Basically what the double slit experiment showed was the particles act as waves (without mass) when they are not being observed by humans, and they act as particles (with mass) when they are being observed. When compared to the electrons found in the brain, electrons behave the same way—when observed they behave differently than when they are not observed. The implication being that electrons are aware that they are being observed and act accordingly. This awareness behaviour has been viewed by many as an example of sentience. For a particle to be aware that it is being observed, it would have to be aware of itself as well, which also implies that these particles may possess thought, which leaves the inevitable conclusion that thoughts contain memory.
In applying sentience to the subatomic aspects of the human body (particularly the brain), and how it functions, the implication is that the particles contained in the body/brain possess a consciousness that exists externally from the physical components of the brain, seemingly at will. This implies that electrons located in the human brain can be in possession of mass and exist without mass at will, depending on whether they are being observed. This sentient behavior from electrons is important because it will be the deciding factor behind how information is perceived and then processed by the host once it receives the necessary stimuli from the amount of receptors that get activated by the action performed.
The other side of this conflict is contained in theory that the consciousness is a component of the brain in that it is a biological phenomenon that is caused by lower level microprocessors in the brain. This view is held by John Searle, Slusser Philosophy Professor, University of California in Berkely. This view has been widely rejected due to the fact that it doesn’t fit neatly in either category of the physical or mental.
With the phenomenon of out of body experiences (OBE), and near death experiences (NDE), the suggestion is that when the body anesthetized, the consciousness can remain aware of events in a disembodied state and then re-localize itself in the brain later. The same phenomenon has been documented in cases where the body or brain dies, and the person observes things from a different perspective and then returns to the body once it is revived. It is believed that events like these explain the potential for reincarnation, in that a consciousness can leave its human host body and enter into another during the fetal stage to incarnate into another individual. This implies that the particles contained within the human brain can exist eternally. The only thing that changes or make a human being unique are its biological components, rather than its ‘consciousness’ which can be observed on a quantum level. With the biological components being the only unique aspects of a human being, the implications are substantial
1) Specific perceptual responses may be initially triggered as a by-product of quantum memory adapted from parents and then redacted as a child grows.
2) Individual consciousness may exist as a by-product of the body’s biological components created from sentient particle behavior.
3) Perceptual responses from the sentient particles, along with the stimuli provided by the receptors may trigger the emotional responses in the brain, which trigger the psychological impulse to rebel against or imitate parents.
4) Some perceptual responses may be transferred on a quantum level from parent to child during conception and even mature during gestation.
5) Quantum memory may be how perception is transferred at conception.
When you sum up all of the body’s responses to actions, and run it against different stimuli, as well as the brain’s manner of perceiving them, you end up with a big confusing pattern of internal behavior that begin at the subatomic level and eventually leads to the biological/biochemical responses in the physical body, that eventually leads to psychological and mental responses displayed externally. Therein lies the basics of my theory that the parent/child relationship begins at the subatomic level at the moment of conception, with the aid of Bell’s theorem on entanglement, and what I refer to as quantum memory. Just more in depth information from my previous post on my random thoughts on the subatomic relationship between parents and their offspring.
