Scientists Embark Upon Their Most Challenging Project Ever – Mapping The Human Brain!

“No matter how closely you examine the water, glucose, and electrolyte salts in the human brain, you can’t find the point where these molecules became conscious.” ~ Deepak Chopra

Seeking to do what the Human Genome Project did for genetics, the race is now on to examine the workings of the human brain and build a comprehensive map of its activity. In the United States, the Obama Administration recently announced its plan of a decade-long scientific study which will include federal agencies, private foundations and teams of neuroscientists and nanoscientists in a concerted effort to advance knowledge of the brain’s billions of neurons and thereby gain greater insights into perception, actions and, ultimately consciousness.

Do the Eyes See or is it Really the Brain?

Do we as human beings actually see what is real with our eyes or is it really just the brain that is doing the seeing?  Do we see perhaps what we expect to see rather than what actually is?

How much more information do our eyes pick up in our daily lives, which the brain filters because it does not expect it to be there. Do we actually live in a constant state of illusion? […]

Physicists Find Evidence That The Universe Is A ‘Giant Brain’

The idea of the universe as a ‘giant brain’ has been proposed by scientists – and science fiction writers – for decades.

But now physicists say there may be some evidence that it’s actually true. In a sense.

According to a study published in Nature’s Scientific Reports, the universe may be growing in the same way as a giant brain – with the electrical firing between brain cells ‘mirrored’ by the shape of expanding galaxies. […]
