Traditionally, science has dismissed the soul as an object of human belief, or reduced it to a psychological concept that shapes our cognition of the observable natural world. But new understandings of consciousness have challenged this claim. According to the theory, consciousness is derived from microtubules within brain cells (neurons) that are sites of quantum processing. According to Dr. Hameroff of the University of Arizona and British physicist Sir Roger Penrosen, when the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing, and the microtubules lose their quantum state, the quantum information in the microtubules isn’t destroyed. So could this explain near-death experiences, or the idea of our consciousness being eternal?:
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is defined as a problem with inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity, or a combination of all. Symptoms include failing to give close attention to detail or making careless mistakes in school work, difficulty keeping attention during tasks or play, not listening when spoken to directly, difficulty following through with instruction, easily distracted and difficulty staying in one place. All of these ‘symptoms’ are perfectly normal given the environment we have created around ourselves.
ADHD is considered to be the most common neuropsychiatric disorder of childhood with a rate of 7-9 percent. Many published articles in ‘credible’ scientific and medical journals have released information connecting ADHD to a dopamine deficit in the brain. Can we really trust this medical research? The same families and corporations that fund the American Medical Association (AMA) and it’s research are directly linked to the pharmaceutical industry. A multi-trillion dollar incentive to distort information and persuade professional perception through academia has always existed.
Enormous outflows of charged particles from the centre of our Galaxy, stretching more than halfway across the sky and moving at supersonic speeds, have been detected and mapped with CSIRO's 64-m Parkes radio telescope.
Corresponding to the "Fermi Bubbles" found in 2010, the recent observations of the phenomenon were made by a team of astronomers from Australia, the USA, Italy and The Netherlands, with the findings reported in the January 2 issue of Nature.
"There is an incredible amount of energy in the outflows," said co-author Professor Lister-Staveley-Smith from The University of Western Australia node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research in Perth and Deputy Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO).
Using a combination of the new tools of metamaterials and transformation optics, engineers at Penn State University have developed designs for miniaturized optical devices that can be used in chip-based optical integrated circuits, the equivalent of the integrated electronic circuits that make possible computers and cell phones.
Controlling light on a microchip could, in the short term, improve optical communications and allow sensing of any substance that interacts with electromagnetic waves. In the medium term, optical integrated circuits for infrared imaging systems are feasible. Further down the road lies high-speed all-optical computing. The path forward requires some twists on well-known equations, and the construction of structures smaller than the wavelength of light.
