Magnets in Vaccines

User Answers


This story was spotted and passed along to me by quite a few people, so thank you to all of you who did so.  Normally a story such as this would not catch the eye of so many people, nor, in turn would they pass it along to me. So what’s going on? What’s the context here?

Well, as one might guess, it’s the planscamdemic, and more specifically, reports beginning to come out about the strange effects of the quackcines. Specifically, in addition to all the reports of various types of adverse reactions to these brews, from blood clots to rashes, swelling, paralysis (Eric Clapton – yes, you read that correctly – Eric Clapton had experience with that reaction) and reactions that look for all intents and purposes like a kind of palsy, with the shaking and twitching associated with Parkinson’s disease.

However, the  adverse reaction report to emerge  in recent days is perhaps the weirdest and strangest, and at first I declined to comment about it because – well – it’s really strange: some people have reported that magnets can cling to the area where they received the jab. Yes, you read that correctly: magnets cling to the area where they were injected.

I must be honest, I was at first very suspicious of the story, and part of me still is.

Until I started receiving the following story from some readers here:

Genetically engineered ‘Magneto’ protein remotely controls brain and behaviour

In this article we read this:

Researchers in the United States have developed a new method for controlling the brain circuits associated with complex animal behaviours, using genetic engineering to create a magnetised protein that activates specific groups of nerve cells from a distance.

Several earlier studies have shown that nerve cell proteins which are activated by heat and mechanical pressure can be genetically engineered so that they become sensitive to radio waves and magnetic fields, by attaching them to an iron-storing protein called ferritin, or to inorganic paramagnetic particles. These methods represent an important advance – they have, for example, already been used to regulate blood glucose levels in mice – but involve multiple components which have to be introduced separately.

The new technique builds on this earlier work, and is based on a protein called TRPV4, which is sensitive to both temperature and stretching forces. These stimuli open its central pore, allowing electrical current to flow through the cell membrane; this evokes nervous impulses that travel into the spinal cord and then up to the brain.

Güler and his colleagues reasoned that magnetic torque (or rotating) forces might activate TRPV4 by tugging open its central pore, and so they used genetic engineering to fuse the protein to the paramagnetic region of ferritin, together with short DNA sequences that signal cells to transport proteins to the nerve cell membrane and insert them into it.

Next, the researchers inserted the Magneto DNA sequence into the genome of a virus, together with the gene encoding green fluorescent protein, and regulatory DNA sequences that cause the construct to be expressed only in specified types of neurons. They then injected the virus into the brains of mice, targeting the entorhinal cortex, and dissected the animals’ brains to identify the cells that emitted green fluorescence. Using microelectrodes, they then showed that applying a magnetic field to the brain slices activated Magneto so that the cells produce nervous impulses.

‘Magnetogenetics’ is therefore an important addition to neuroscientists’ tool box, which will undoubtedly be developed further, and provide researchers with new ways of studying brain development and function. (Boldface emphasis added)

“Magnetogenetics”… let that term sink in for a moment.

So the question is, are the “quackcines” unintentionally, or worse deliberately, incorporating such technology? I don’t know, but it’s worth noting that among the adverse reactions and warnings from certain segments of the medical community are warnings about creating prion diseases and other neurophysiological effects, and the occasional report about behavioural changes in some recipients.

And just think, folks, we’re only just getting started…

Weapons of Mass Destruction – Then and Now



June 3, 2020 By Joseph P. Farrell

Regular readers of this site and of many of my books know that archaeology is a subject that intrigues me, and in particular, the whole mystery of the Baghdad Museum Looting, so when M.W. and J.N. sent along this story, readers will understand (perhaps) my reasons for vaulting it over other stories that, numerically at least, filled my inbox and which should have become one of this week’s finalists. But beyond the intrinsic personal interest, there was a comment in this article that really set my high octane speculation gears into a spin of frenzied hypothesizing, and perhaps even “artificact hypothecation.” We’ll get back to that in a moment after a bit of review of what my suspicions have always been regarding the Baghdad Museum Looting.

You may or may not recall the story, but in case you don’t, here it is: shortly after the “allied” invasion of Iraq, version 2.o, a story was first broken by Der Spiegel in Germany that the Baghdad Musuem had been looted, and hundreds of art and other items had been stolen from its vaults. As the story continued to grow, it was soon asserted that people wearing American uniforms were seen entering and leaving the Museum, carrying out boxes of… well, who knows what? Part of the narrative quickly became that the thieves “knew what they were looking for” and “exactly where in the museum to look.” In short, it was an inside job of some sort. The question is, whose inside job was it? Was it Iraqi museum employees, or Iraqi members of the French and German archaeological teams that Saddam Hussein had in the country digging it up? If so, were they trying to make a quick dinar by selling antiquities on the lucrative antiquities black market? Or conversely, were they really Americans, looking for something else? Or were they French or German intelligence agents – Germany’s BND had something of a presence in Iraq at the time – looking to recover the fruits of their archaeological teams’ labors? The part about it being an inside job and the thieves’ knowing exactly what they wanted and where to look for it, suggests that whoever did it had access to the field inventories and catalogues of whatever it was those archaeological teams dug up for Saddam, and that would seem to imply a potential French and/or German connection and operation. After all, anyone – and especially intelligence agencies – can wear American uniforms.

Then the story became – to my mind at least – stranger still, for the USA appointed US Marine Colonel Bogdonovich to oversea the recovery of the stolen items. This he did, and with no little success. The problem was, and remains for me, that what was recovered were the art works… the thousands of cuneiform tablets that were taken more or less dropped off the radar of the story and indeed were never, from the outset, a major part of it, almost as if whoever had planned the theft had stolen the art works as a diversion, so that they could be “recovered” and “returned,” while the cuneiform tablets quietly disappeared, and were, perhaps, quietly photographed and covertly translated. With the recovery of the art works and their return to Iraq, the story was over, and the cuneiform tablets were conveniently ignored.

With that context in mind, there is this story:


Now, it is to be stressed that at least as far as this article is concerned, the “Gilgamesh Dream Tablet” was not part of the stolen tablets from the Baghdad Museum Looting, nor a part of any cuneiform tablets as may have been stolen from it. Indeed, we have never seen any inventory of what was on those tablets, because, again, they were likely part of the field catalogues of the archaeological teams, and the Museum itself seems not to have entered many them into its own inventories. We simply don’t know. One thing the article does make clear, however, is that the provenance documents for this tablet were forged, and hence Hobby Lobby, thinking it was buying something legally, bought what turns out was indeed stolen. But stolen when? We don’t know, because the documents were forged, thus making it entirely possible that this precious artifact from Iraq’s ancient history may indeed have been a part of the looted Baghdad Museum treasure. Indeed, that’s the problem with this whole story; there are more questions than answers, and precious few people anywhere – even in the alternative research field – appear to be willing to raise those questions.  And if this tablet was part of the swag from the Baghdad Museum Looting, then that implies that at least some of those tablets were about more than just checks, bills, inventory reports and so on. It means that at least some of those tablets were texts, and very important ones at that.

So what, if anything, were the thieves looking for, really? Well, again, to recall my previous high octane speculations on the subject, when the G.W. Bush administration announced it was heading into Iraq to prevent Saddam Hussein from acquiring weapons of mass destruction and look for evidence he was trying to do so, my thought then, and my thought still, is that they were telling a partial truth, but one which concealed their real agenda, for they were not, in my estimation, looking for modern weapons of mass destruction – atomic, biological, and chemical (and we knew Hussein had the last capability because we, the USA, gave it to him) – they were looking for the ancient weapons of mass destruction, the Tablets of Destinies, or at least, for information about them, which information would, of course, be on cuneiform tablets. In putting out this narrative, the Schrubb misadministration could count on the American and Western propatainment media to not entertain any other interpretation of that ‘weapons of mass destruction’ narrative than the modern one.

All of which brings me to this statement in the article, and to some high octane musings on its implications:

Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for (Hobby Lobby’s Bible) museum claimed it supported the Department of Homeland Security’s efforts at returning the tablet to Iraq.

Wait a minute! Say that again… Homeland Security?

Homeland Security is in charge of rooting out and finding stolen antiquities – including cuneiform tablets – from Iraq and returning them?!? Why Homeland Security? What could a bunch of clay tablets have to do with the domestic national security of the United States? One would think this this type of theft would be more in the jurisdiction of an agency like the FBI, or even the US Marshal’s Service. But Homeland Security? The new intelligence agency the Schrubb Misadministration gave to the country in the wake of 9/11 on the hacked up excuse that we could never suffer an intelligence failure or the lack of inter-intelligence-agency communication again? That Homeland Security?

By now, you probably know what I’m thinking, namely, that it’s the perfect agency to involve if you want to vet what is, and is not, to be returned to Iraq. Tablets about heroes of Babylonian epics… yea, go ahead and return those. But anything involving national security, say, oh, things like more information on those ancient “weapons of the Gods,” or where, for example, they might be found. Well, that’s an entirely different matter. Best to not even acknowledge their existence, and let our own translators translate them, and keep those translations all highly classified.

Drug of Choice —For The Elite



June 1, 2020 By Joseph P. Farrell

I know, I know, we’re all tired of hearing about the story no one wants to talk about. We’re tired of the social engineering of the manipulated memes of “wear a mask” and “social distancing,” and of dirty doctors connected to the Baal and Malicious Gates Foundation trying to set policy for how, when, and under what circumstances churches may open and worship. I have a couple of words for said people: anathema fiat (and I mean that). And while it appears that all this Fauci-Lieber-Wuhan-Baal Gates virus narrative hysteria is running out of steam, and that “they” have cued up a new crisis de jour with the rioting, a little story stole in under the radar. Fortunately, the regular readers of this website who send me articles, spotted it and passed it along. In this case, it was L.G.R. and the article has me wondering all sorts of stuff.

It seems that in addition to President Trump, Ecuador’s President Nayib Bukele has also been taking hydroxychloroquine. It’s why he’s been taking it that has my suspicion meter into the red zone:

Here’s what Senor Bukele has to say about the matter:

President of El Salvador Nayib Bukele has announced that he is taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against the coronavirus.

Bukele told reporters on Tuesday that “most world leaders” are doing the same and has questioned why world leaders are being advised to use it while the public is not.

I use it as a prophylaxis, President Trump uses it as a prophylaxis, most of the world’s leaders use it as a prophylaxis,” said Bukele. (Italicized emphasis added)

And then he adds this:

The World Health Organization suspended a trial of the drug on Monday, claiming that they had safety concerns. Following their announcement, Bukele said that El Salvador would no longer promote it as a treatment for the virus, but that people could continue to take it as a preventative measure if they wish.

On Twitter, Bukele questioned why world leaders were being advised to take it, while the general public is not.

“Does it work? I don’t know. But we have been advised to take it. While the rest of the world is being advised not to. Why? That’s a question worth asking. Isn’t it?” Bukele wrote. (Italicized emphasis added)

Now, reading between the lines a bit, the impression is given that world leaders were advised by some mysterious “someone” that they should take the drug as a prophylactic measure, i.e., as a preventative measure. We’ll get back to that in a moment, because as Senor Bukele avers, it raises all sorts of questions. But I want to focus, for a moment, on that “little” revelation about the W.H.O. That would be the same W.H.O. from which the Trump administration has recently suspended all American contributions and financial support, and that South Carolina U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham recently took a break from his box of animal cracker cookies to state that he thought putting Baal Gates in charge of the organization was a wonderful idea, and that if that happened, he’d be all for doubling the U.S. contribution. Thanks Lindsey; you can go back to shining Baal’s shoes now. (See


Anyway, what Senor Bukele is implying is that the drug is OK for the “elite”, but not OK for everyone else.

Gee, I wonder why…?

Well, think about it. Baal and Malicious Gates have an agenda, and that’s to force everyone to take their “vaccines”. (I’m still waiting for Baal and Malicious to show everyone their technology is safe by taking it themselves, and revealing their records that they have done so.) The “vaccines” (and I’m qualifying the word because I have serious doubts that they’re “vaccines” in any ordinary sense of the word, and loaded with other “goodies” that will, per the Microsludge business model, require constant “updates” and that will still be as virus prone as the horrible operating system software Baal Gates inflicted on the world. But I digress.) Those “vaccines” will be more expensive, and if Baal gets his way, everyone will be forced to take them. So much for “my body, my choice.”

With that, we come to the central problem implied by Senor Bukele’s revelation: why would anyone want to take a relatively harmless – and inexpensive – drug like hydroxychloroquine, in use for decades and which has been shown during this Fauci-Lieber-Wuhan-Baal Gates plandemic to have curative and preventative properties for COVID-19, when a much more expensive, untried and as yet unavailable “vaccine” is “just around the corner”, notwithstanding we’re still waiting – thank you Dr. Fauci – for an HIV-AIDS vaccine?

Or to put it country simple, simple enough that even a Baal Gates can understand, hydroxychloroquine is the inconvenient fact that shatters the plandemic-“vaccine” narrative. That’s why the W.H.O tried to ramp up the hysteria about the drug’s side effects. Why would anyone want Baal’s “vaccine” with all its potentially-embedded nano-technology, when a drug on the market for decades has already shown its prophylatic and curative properties.

How about it, Baal, are you one of those “world leaders” taking it as a prophylactic too?

I know, I know… you’ll never tell, because like your namesake, you’re all about human sacrifice…

Time, Tau Neutrinos, & Antarctica



By Joseph P. Farrell

Now before you think I’ve gone running off the end of the twig on this one by  titling a blog “Time Reversals and Parallel Universes…in Antarctica” and filing it under “geoengineering,” bear with me a bit. I’ve not only run off the end of the twig, I’m probably falling like Wile E. Coyote into a very deep canyon, with an Acme steel vault following me. (For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, see “Road Runner” on Youtube. Any one will do.) Indeed, I had to blog about this one, not only because of my inherent interest in the high strangeness surrounding our southern most continent, and not only because of my inherent interest in things like time reversals and parallel universes, but also because of the fact that I received versions of this story from no less than E.E., C.M., P.T., B., D.D., K.M., and J.K.:

Let’s take the Daily Mail article as a guide here, since there’s a bit more information contained in its version than in the others. There, we read this:

Researchers working in Antarctica have been trying to understand the behavior of a mysterious new particle.

Some suggest it’s evidence that during the Big Bang a second universe was created that mirrors our own, consisting mainly of antimatter, and in which time flows backward.

But then the researchers, led by University of Hawaii’s Peter Gorham, realized their data showed the exact opposite of what they had been looking for: a stream of high energy particles traveling out of the Earth’s surface and into space.

The particles were believed to be tau neutrinos, a type of slow moving particle that has the capacity to temporarily transform into a high energy particle called a tau lepton before returning to its low energy state.

Soon other researchers began analyzing the ANITA data to grapple with the mystery, including Neil Turok of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada.

Turok suggested the right-handed and left-handed neutrinos could be related in the same way that matter and antimatter are related, pointing specifically to a concept that posits matter and antimatter are the same type of particle just moving in opposite directions through time.

According to this theory, the still mysterious ‘right-handed’ neutrinos’ observed in Antarctica weren’t just new particles, but pilgrims from an entirely new universe.

That new universe would have formed during the Big Bang at the same point as our own, but moving in the opposite direction through time, contracting rather instead of expanding, and comprised primarily of antimatter rather than matter .

And there you have it. Assuming all this to be true for the sake of our “off-the-end-of-the-twig-of-high-octane-speculation,” K.M. proposed the idea that it might mean that there is a “conservation of time,” i.e., that if time flows in one direction in one universe, it might flow in the opposite direction in another, with both universes summing to zero and thus “everything is conserved, including time.” It’s a fascinating idea, and dovetails quite well with the idea that there might be another universe composed of anti-matter, where are the particles are the “same,” yet spin in opposite directions and thus having reverse polarities to particles and fields in this one, i.e., what is a “north” or positive pole in this universe, would be a south or negative pole in the other one. Everything would be, so to speak, “upside down.” And the idea of a “parallel-but-opposite” universe formed at the moment of “the big bang” would also solve a perplexing problem, namely, that of the matter/anti-matter anisotropy of our universe, which has such a preponderence of matter and so little anti-matter; the amounts are not equal, and hence our universe is anisotropic (non-equal) with respect to matter and anti-matter. Presumably, such a “parallel-but-opposite” universe would also be anisoptropic, but possessed of a great amount of anti-matter and little matter, so that taken together, the two would “balance the books.” And since everything runs in the opposite direction in an anti-matter universe, time would be conserved.

Well, all that’s a bit of fun speculation, but way beyond the actual implications of the articles, whose implications are big enough: there may be evidence of a parallel universe “touching” our own, via the planetary dynamo of Earth itself, manifesting itself at Antarctica. Or to put it differently, maybe every planet with geomagnetic features similar to the Earth has such a mechanism at its southern/negative pole, and if so, then maybe every planet has a kind of “membrane” or “common entangled surface” with another universe at its southern pole, which possibly may act as a kind of “gate” to that world.

As one might imagine, my high octane speculation of the day has more to do with the possible connection of this revelation to the strange people over the years who’ve been associated with the southern polar continent. It’s a very bizarre list, from former Nazi “Deputy Fuehrer” Rudolf Hess, and Reichsmarschall Herman Goering, to former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, U.S. Admiral Richard Byrd, to some British and Spanish royals, and former Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin  whose tweets both before, during and after his Antarctic trip were… well…  just strange. That’s a bizarre list of people, and one has to wonder just why they all have either visited the place, or shown such curiosity about it. Might this story have something to do with it?

And while I’m at it, another thought occurs: Might we even have been given a clue that “they” have been experimenting with time for a (pardon the pun) very long time? Might we be watching the result of a gigantic experiment involving the entire planet itself, one perhaps involving massive man-made magnetic fields, the resonance thereof, and … well, I’ll leave it at that, because that idea implies that what the article is talking about is something that arose only recently…

In short, I don’t know about you, but I cannot get rid of the feeling that perhaps, just perhaps, the veil might have been pulled back just a little with respect to the strange goings on in Antarctica.

WHO – Are You Kidding?



May 13, 2020 By Joseph P. Farrell

Now here’s one for the “what next?” category, if we had one. It was spotted by W.M. who kindly sent it along, and I received it just as I was scheduling blogs for the coming week. Normally I do that on Sundays, when I go through all that previous week’s assorted emails and articles, gradually narrowing things down to what I want to blog about. Well, this one bumped my originally-planned Wednesday blog to the “honorable mentions”, and jumped right to the top.

It seems that Tanzania’s President John Magufili pulled a fast one on the World Health Organization:

“We Sent Them Samples Of A Goat, A Papaya & A Pheasant”: Tanzanian President Catches WHO In Epic Lie

Now, to be sure, the Zero Hedge folks are urging some caution with the story, for Magufili is not without his own questionable actions:

Magufuli has garnered plenty of controversy himself over the past few weeks. He recently requested stockpiles of an ‘herbal tea’ that has been falsely branded as a COVID-19 cure, and has launched investigations impacting domestic labs and even frontline medical workers as he’s claimed the number of positive tests in his country is too high. The reality is that Tanzania doesn’t have much of a outbreak: It has recorded only 503 cases and 21 deaths. Though its mortality rate of 4% would suggest that the true number of cases likely numbers in the thousands.

Following the results, Magufuli fired the head of Tanzania’s national lab, sparking a political firestorm. Of course, though Magufuli has been criticized for trying to play down the impact of the virus, the government has so far refused to answer questions about where its test kits were manufactured, as Al Jazeera points out. On Thursday, the head of the Africa Center for Disease Control and Prevention rejected claims of faulty tests by Tanzania’s president.

The unreliability of COVID-19 tests manufactured in China has been a major problem for the US, and for Europe, as countries and states have been forced to discard PPE purchased in China – often after purchasing it at inflated prices – because only one-third of the masks actually work, and many of the tests have been found to produce positive and negative results more or less at random.

With that on the record, however, here’s what Magufili allegedly did:

He played what the local press described as “a trick” on the organization: He sent the WHO samples of a goat, a papaya and a quail for testing.

All three samples reportedly tested positive. When the president heard the news, he reportedly confronted the WHO, then kicked the organization out of the country. Though, to be sure, the WHO has yet to comment on the situation.

That would suggest one of two conclusions: either the strain of SARS-CoV-2 running amok in Tanzania is much, much more infectious than scientists understand, or the WHO has been reporting incorrect results either on purpose (as an attempt to bolster its credibility in the face of President Trump’s attacks) or via error (yet another indication that the WHO truly is “badly brokem” – as  Vox described it back in 2015).

Most rational people would probably accept the latter scenario as the most accurate one.

Well, you can count me as one of those who thinks WHO is badly broken. The sad news there is, the U.S. Senator from South Carolina, Lindsey Grahamcracker, thinks it would function a whole lot better with Bill Gates at the helm….

…no, quit laughing! He really said that!

Anyway, I for one think the story is probably true, and that Magufili may be sensing a whole lot more than he’s letting on, because it strikes me that there’s a not-so-subtle eugenics aspect to the whole Fauci-Lieber-Wuhan virus story, namely, that it seems to have a higher infection and mortality rate among blacks than other populations. And let’s face it, with China’s influence at the WHO, and with them perhaps therefore providing a great deal of the WHO’s tests, and given that China’s tests – like pretty much everything else the Chinese Communist party does – are not to be trusted, it wouldn’t surprise me one little bit.

And let’s hope that other African leaders have sent similar samples to the WHO, and are willing to catch them out. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised either, if they already had.

Sound Healing, Pipe Organs & Royal Rife

Joseph P Farrell on Mind, Heart, & Memory



You may recall that yesterday I blogged about an allegedly successful experiment in the “freezing”, or at least, “extreme cooling” of a human being, and his or her successful “reanimation.” The key to the allegedly successful experiment was, you might also recall, the removal of the patient’s blood and its replacement by an “ice-cold saline solution.” And I speculated that the whole procedure, since it was performed with the consent of the government, might have had as a hidden goal to discover what happened to that individual’s consciousness while undergoing the “procedure.”  We may now also wonder if, indeed, the removal of the individual’s blood was part of my hypothesized “consciousness experiment”; was the individual’s own blood even restored to him or her? Or was it someone else’s?

We don’t know, because there was scanty information provided about the whole alleged success; we were told only that its performer, Dr. Samuel Tisherman, promises to deliver a paper on the whole thing in 2020.

But in that respect, there’s another odd story that was spotted by M.C., who is due a big thank you for sending it along:

Second Brain Found in Heart Neurons – Trust Your Gut Feelings

Now, this is not exactly new; I have in fact blogged about the unusual nature of this “heart-brain” idea before; neurons are not confined merely to the brain, but appear in the heart as well. There was, however, something that caught my eye in this article, and I rather suspect it’s what caught M.C.’s eye as well and compelled M.C. to send the article along; you’ll note that the article enumerates various cases of individuals who have received heart transplants, and whose behavior suddenly changes to embrace habits and behaviors associated with the donor of the heart. While the article does not mention them, similar experiences have been recorded for other types of organ transplants. One wonders if a similar phenomenon can be associated with blood transplants.

But in any case, what caught my attention in this article was this statement:

Neurologist Dr. Andrew Armour from Montreal in Canada discovered a sophisticated collection of neurons in the heart organised into a small but complex nervous system. The heart’s nervous system contains around 40,000 neurons called sensory neurites that communicate with the brain. Dr. Armour called it “the Little Brain in the Heart”. It has been known for many years that memory is a distributive process. You can’t localize memory to a neuron or a group of neurons in the brain. The memory itself is distributed throughout the neural system. So why do we draw a line at the brain? (Emphasis added)

This idea of distributed memory sounds a bit like a hologram, and the article quickly proceeds to try to avoid the unpleasant aspects of that by quickly trying to tie it all to good-old-fashioned-and-purely-materialistic speculations:

Other medical experts offer different explanations, but all agree that it is not so much mystical as it is science, and a science that needs further exploration.Professor Pr Paul Pearsall and Pr Gary Schwarz got together.

Professor Gary Schwartz says that “Feedback mechanisms are involved in learning. When we talk, for example, about how the brain learns, we talk about what we call neural networks in the brain. It turns out that the way a neural network works is that the output of the neurons feeds back into the input of the neurons. And this process goes over and over again. So long as the feedback is present the neurons will learn. If you cut the feedback, there is no learning in the neurons.”

The Mind is Not Just in the Brain

Dr. Candace Pert, a pharmacologist at Georgetown University believes that the mind is not just in the brain, but also exists throughout the body. This school of thought could explain such strange transplant experiences. “The mind and body communicate with each other through chemicals known as peptides. These peptides are found in the brain as well as in the stomach, in muscles and in all of our major organs. I believe that memory can be accessed anywhere in the peptide/receptor network. For instance, a memory associated with food may be linked to the pancreas or liver and such associations can be transplanted from one person to another”.

Now I’m all for feedback loops as I’ve talked about them in all sorts of contexts. And for that matter, the idea of the heart being part of a kind of “distributed brain” also appeals to me; for one thing, octopuses appear to have this type of structure to their nine brains. But more importantly, I’ve always been an advocate of the more ancient idea that human reason is not mere ratiocination, but incorporates and includes what the ancients would have called the passions, a deeper word than “emotions.” So it appeals to me for this reason as well.

But it’s that “distributed memory” idea and its “holographic” overtones that really appeals, for lurking deeply within that idea is the idea that memory is not local, existing or concentrated in this or that area of the brain, or the body. It rather as if what is implied by that idea is the opposite: that the body exists within a memory, and is imprinted with it like a psychotronic object. If it’s distributed, and non-local, then perhaps it’s also an indicator that the body, in order to be a body, is integrated at the quantum level, by quantum tunneling, perhaps, and that memory may be a function of this somehow. Whatever one makes of my speculations here, I strongly suspect that this idea of distributed memory means that those old Cartesian dualisms and epiphenomena are, like all over-simplified dualisms, going to go the way of the dodo bird, and that the relationship between the tangible physical body and the immaterial intangible world of things like memory are going to turn out to be far more complex than we imagined, and that those “feedback loops” between the two are the key.

On Weather Modification

Consciousness & A Link to Light


Every now and then I get one of “those” articles that’s so stunning in its implications that I have to blog about it, if simply for the sheer fun of crawling out to the end of the High Octane Speculation twig, and launching myself into thin air and just let the speculations run where they will. Well, this article that was spotted and shared by Mr. V.T. is definitely one of “those” articles:

Scientists Discover Biophotons In The Brain That Could Hint Our Consciousness Is Directly Linked To Light

What grabbed me here was this:

Scientists found that neurons in mammalian brains were capable of producing photons of light, or “Biophotons”!

The photons, strangely enough, appear within the visible spectrum. They range from near-infrared through violet, or between 200 and 1,300 nanometers.

Scientists have an exciting suspicion that our brain’s neurons might be able to communicate through light. They suspect that our brain might have optical communication channels, but they have no idea what could be communicated.

And that led the author or authors of the article to ask an obvious question:

This raises the question, could it be possible that the more light one can produce and communicate between neurons, the more conscious they are?

In other words, in contrast to the “older” model of consciousness being a kind of “either/or” question, with humans obviously “conscious” and rocks obviously not, and animals in some frustrating philosophical no-man’s land in between (“dumb animals”), might it be more of a spectrum or continuum? Well, maybe. Personally, I’ve always been more comfortable with the latter view than the former, and I suspect that anyone who has owned a pet is too; they certainly don’t behave or act as simply “dumb biomechanical machines.”

However, there’s a catch in the article, and it’s revealed by that very “continuum of consciousness” idea: do more biophotons and neurons not indicate a materialist view of the mind, i.e., that mind and consciousness arise solely from materialistic causes? It may seem that way, but the author/s of the article are quick to catch the implications of the finding, which, when one thinks about it a bit, flips the whole argument of emergent consciousness from material causes on its head:

Just think for a moment. Many texts and religions dating way back, since the dawn of human civilization have reported of saints, ascended beings and enlightened individuals having shining circles around their heads.

From Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, to teachings of Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Christianity, among many other religions, sacred individuals were depicted with a shining circle in the form of a circular glow around their heads.

In other words, that famous verse from Genesis that many of us learned in Sunday school – “Let there be light” – might be a kind of biophysical euphemism for “Let there be conscious existence.” But they don’t stop there:

But one of the most exciting implications the discovery that our brains can produce light gives, is that maybe our consciousness and spirit are not contained within our bodies. This implication is completely overlooked by scientists.

Quantum entanglement says that 2 entangled photons react if one of the photons is affected no matter where the other photon is in The Universe without any delay.

In other words, the patterns of biophotonic activity, if they do give rise to consciousness, means precisely that that a specific pattern could be entangled somewhere else in the universe, and hence, that specific consciousness is not localized within “this particular brain” but could, in fact, be localized in several brains. That really captured my imagination, for it seems to square with many other hypotheses, from Dr. Rupter Sheldrake’s “morphogenetic field” to the idea – voiced by Bearden and some other authors – that each species has its own unique “electromagnetic signature”, which signature again is a non-local phenomenon; even the idea of epigenetics seems to be implied by the idea, i.e., that there is some mechanism influencing evolution that is beyond the sum total of material “bits of information” (the genome itself), influencing development.

It’s that possibility of the entanglement of biophotons that could also impact on something else: the multi-verse theory of Everett and Wheeler, who first posited that interpretation of quantum mechanics. The idea is, that for every set of possible observations, there must be a “timeline” or “universe” actualizing that potential (to put it crudely). They were, it should be noted, very uncomfortable with their own idea, because it seemed to make no sense. Plus, it gave rise to all sorts of thorny problems: if there were a multitude of universes, was it possible for one to “bleed through” into the other? Conventional wisdom would say no. But if those multiverses are a reflection of “entangled biophotons,” something very different would seem to result, for the first result is: the template of an individual consciousness itself might be non-local, but it is found present simultaneously in a multitude of “universes” (or if one prefer, timelines), and it’s that which might account for “bleed through” or “overlap” of one into the other. If all this high octane speculation be true, then a great deal will have to be re-thought, from reincarnation to multiverses, for it would appear that this idea of an entangled, non-local template of consciousness would be, more or less, a common surface uniting them all.

See you on the flip side..
