Where are our thoughts written?

My thoughts can be transmitted to you, dear reader, by coding them in symbols, in words, and typing them on my keyboard. They are then transmitted through many wires, electromagnetic waves and light signals until they reach your eyes, transmitted further through electrochemical signals into your brain. In your brain they will be encoded again and become part of your own thoughts. Now my thoughts are also your thoughts.

Transmitting thoughts to others can be possible through many medias. Writing words on paper is the classical method we used before the computer era.

But where are our thoughts written?

Till to this point of the article you has read approximately one hundred words. For all this words a computer needs 714 Bytes of memory to persist them. Watching a movie coded in a advanced mathematical compression method we then need memory space in our brain approximately of one gigabyte. How many movies have you watched in your live?

What I try to say is, that our brain has not enough memory space to persist all our experience made in our life. All things we have seen, thoughts, emotions, feelings, pleasure and pain, knowledge, awareness, … there is not enough space in our brain to memorize it!

If our universe is holographic in his nature, like a fractal, as above so below, then our thoughts are persisted in another kind than the materialistic oriented scientist tried to make us believe for so long time.

Our brain is a interface, not a computer

People that are in love generally shares the same thoughts and emotions. A thought creates a field. The field is not bound to a local place, but it expands through the entire universe. There is no limit where this field permeate. But people with same or similar objectives in their live creates a bigger invisible field and ideas jumps into their minds suddenly out of the collective. The brain functions here only as a “interface“, but this time not only for thoughts of the individual, but also for the thoughts of the collective.

What is this field?

The field created by a thought or emotions is very similar to a electromagnetic field. Indeed there exist many analogies between them. A electromagnetic field expands theoretical also through the entire universe. Quantum physics explains the entanglement between two atoms separated by space, after they once in life was in contact. Light is another phenomenon that obeys the laws of quantum physic. It collapses to a particle or it behaves like a wave, depending if it is observed by another consciousness. (Maybe this little photons are very shy!)

Is there a straight relation between consciousness and electricity?

I here consider the nature and magnitude of the brain´s endogenous em field and consider its influence in modulating neuronal activity. I show that the brain generates a dynamic and information-rich em field that influences neurone firing through electrical field coupling and its dynamics has many of the characteristics expected for a correlate consciousness. I show that synchronous firing of neurones ‘phase-locks´ em field effects and thereby increases the level of electrical coupling between the brain´s em field and neurones, providing an explanation for the observed correlation between awareness and synchronous firing (Singer, 1999). This detailed argument supports my earlier proposal ((McFadden, 2000) that the brain´s electromagnetic field is the seat of consciousness.


Only in our brain the electromagnetic activity reaches the most complexes patterns. The entire body works electrochemical too. Biological cells send also single photons for communication (Biophotons). But only the brain creates very complex electromagnetic patterns. Even during sleep the brain is very active.

Maybe during sleep the brain shares more thoughts with the collective consciousness as most of us could imagine

Like your PC that updates his operating system through the internet, maybe also our brain acts like a interface that communicates with the collective during sleep, sharing information coded in symbols that we have in common as humans. These symbols was called by Carl Gustav Jung archetypes.

Archetypes represent a common language, symbols that everyone understand, that all humans have in common.

Most archetypes are animals, insects, reptiles. In some cultures symbols of different animals are used to describe the main character or constitution of a person. Other cultures uses animals to describe time qualities. Some other cultures has used animals as symbols to describe the character of governments, like the Israelites describes the future governments in their prophecies in the Bible.

We make also use of archetypes when we think, when we describe something. The words we use exists in a common pool. Language is a common thing, therefore a language has its own field.

When we think, our thoughts are coded by a common field and linked to our own unspeakable name (the DNA). But our thoughts still remain entangled to the common field of the language.
