Today, the fields of neuroscience and neurotechnology provide astounding insights into the electrical and chemical processes of the brain. Consequently, institutional science proposes with confidence that the brain alone creates conscious experience. Yet despite all that science has learned, the very source and essence of …

Science is a dogmatic system

In this video, British biologist Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, one of the world’s most innovative scientists, describes how science is being constricted by unexamined assumptions that have hardened into dogmas. These dogmas not only put arbitrary limits on the depth and scope of science, but may well be dangerous for the future of humanity. According to …

We recognize that our brain-centric world view is replaced by a world full of broadcasting antennas, internet, social networks, communication technology. Our mind is everywhere, …

Global Synchronization for the Brain

The human brain is a biological organ. On one hand it is soft, flexible and adaptive, but on the other hand is relatively stable and coherent with well developed intelligence. In order to retain intelligent thinking in a soft and adaptive organ there needs to be a constant, globally available, synchronization system that continuously stabilizes …
