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.

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. […]
