Reverse engineering consciousness: Is the brain a quantum computer?

The human brain is often described as a powerful computer, a metaphor that leads many experts to fear AI could one day become sentient. But what if developers seeking to create machines that think are barking up the wrong tree? Our minds, according to some, are actually quantum computers. And, if that’s true, today’s deep … Continue reading Reverse engineering consciousness: Is the brain a quantum computer?

US GOVERNMENT ISSUED $300 BILLION IN NEW DEBT THIS WEEK

RePosted from Sovereignman.Com March 28, 2018 Ninh Hai, Ninh Thuan Province, Vietnam I’m doing my best to take a few days off this week, and have the pleasure of spending time with some friends here in a fairly remote corner of Vietnam’s magnificent coastline. This is one of the most pristine places I’ve ever been-- … Continue reading US GOVERNMENT ISSUED $300 BILLION IN NEW DEBT THIS WEEK

Scientists Developing Prosthetic Hands That Amputees Can Feel

Research published in Science Translational Medicine could helpmend the disconnect between patients and their prosthetic limbs. Attaching vibrating devices to muscles at the site of the amputation, researchers were able to create an illusory sensation that mimics the feeling of “kinesthesia,” or movement self-awareness. The experiment allowed patients to “feel” the prosthetic hand to an … Continue reading Scientists Developing Prosthetic Hands That Amputees Can Feel

Quantum Physicists Doubled the Information Speed Limit of the Universe

There's a limit to how fast information can move through the universe, just like there's a limit to how fast everything else can move through the universe. It's a rule. But a team of quantum physicists, like quantum physicists often do, has figured out how to bend it. Under normal circumstances, the ultimate limit on … Continue reading Quantum Physicists Doubled the Information Speed Limit of the Universe

Study Finds that Fasting for 72 Hours Can Regenerate the Entire Immune System

There has long been controversy surrounding the potential benefits or hazards of fasting. On one hand, supporters of fasting point to the many benefits that they claim fasting provides. This includes promoting weight loss, normalizing insulin sensitivity, lowering triglyceride levels in the body and slowing the signs of aging. There are a number of different … Continue reading Study Finds that Fasting for 72 Hours Can Regenerate the Entire Immune System

Scientists observe a new quantum particle with properties of ball lightning

Artistic impression of a quantum ball lighting. Credit: Heikka Valja Scientists at Amherst College and Aalto University have created, for the first time a three-dimensional skyrmion in a quantum gas. The skyrmion was predicted theoretically over 40 years ago, but only now has it been observed experimentally. In an extremely sparse and cold quantum gas, … Continue reading Scientists observe a new quantum particle with properties of ball lightning
