THE REVOLUTION IN BRAINWAVE RESEARCH
Bradley York Bartholomew
Independent Researcher, France
In 2014, a research paper was published in Nature Genetics entitled Remote Regulation of Glucose Homeostasis Using Genetically Encoded Nanoparticles which launched a new direction in optogenetics which is known as radiogenetics.1 Radiogenetics will make it possible to remotely control biological targets in living animals without wires, implants, or drugs. A research team at Rockefeller University used electromagnetic waves to turn on insulin production to lower blood sugar in diabetic mice. A naturally occurring iron storage particle in the body, ferritin, when exposed to a radiowave or a magnetic field can activate an ion channel called TRPVI which in turn leads to the activation of an insulin producing gene. These two proteins, ferritin, and TRPVI acting together as a nano-machine can be used to trigger gene expression in vivo. And it is all done by radiowaves.
Interestingly the researchers were able to achieve the same result by manipulating the ferritin with a magnetic field, which obviously recalls the theories of Franz Mesmer in the 18th century about animal magnetism and the magnetic cure. It could well be the case that a hypnotist is able to channel his/her brain waves which are ELF radio waves to manipulate the ferritin in the cells and genes of his/her subjects. Mesmer himself stated that the magnets were immaterial to his treatment and what was essential was his state of mind towards the patient. He was willing the patient to be healed and there is a reasonable amount of authority for the proposition that the brainwaves (ELF radiowaves) of healer and patient become synchronized.2,3 Indeed one-on-one interlocution or close contact in general seems to have a mutual effect on the brain waves of the participants.4 I stress that this new research used low-frequency radio waves and that is precisely what brainwaves are, and that they apparently act in exactly the same way as a magnetic field.
This year has seen a revolution in brainwave research. A research paper Towards reconstructing intelligible speech from the human auditory cortex used a DNN (AI Deeplearning Device) to read the brainwaves produced by words that the subject had heard rather than spoken.5 This is literally the start of mind-reading technology. And Elon Musk’s initiative to make EEG electrodes a thousand times more sensitive and insert them into the brain like a nano sim card in a mobile phone recognizes that brainwaves are ELF radiowaves generated by the brain for the purpose of communication.
The essential point that I want to make here is that the brain is a sophisticated electronic device, and consciousness is generated by electronics and is essentially the same as what happens when the screen lights up on your mobile phone. This explains how the brainwaves of healer/hypnotist and patient become synchronized. Essentially the brains of all living creatures are connected at the cellular and genetic level via brain waves (ELF radiowaves) just like all wirelessly connected electronic devices. Mesmer's animal magnetism is no different from what happens when you wave your credit card over a wireless payment device. Subconsciously we are reading each other’s animal magnetism as if we were wirelessly reading the balance on their credit card.

ANIMAL MAGNETISM APPLIES TO PLANTS AS WELL
IN CHINA FARMERS ARE EXPOSING PLANTS TO ELECTRIC FIELDS
An article in New Scientist on 28/8/19 entitled - Inside China's attempt to boost crop yields with electric fields - reviews all the attempts that have been made over the years to make plants grow quicker by exposing them to electric fields. Their conclusion is that it is clear that electric fields do affect plant growth but the results are unpredictable and erratic, and they don't actually know what processes are involved.
What follows is an email that I sent to the author's of this artcile and to various scientists that are named in the article:
An article in New Scientist “A hat that zaps the scalp with electricity helps reverse male balding” tells us that stimulating the scalp with electric pulses can restore hair growth. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have developed a baseball cap that contains wirelss patches that stick to the scalp and generate electric pulses by harnessing energy from random body movements. Essentially the electricity is generated by friction and is known as the triboelectric effect.
So I sent these researchers an email:
Well I can't help feeling that this triboelectric effect is actually generating an oscillating current in which case it is emitting ELF radiowaves. You would be aware of this research in radiogenetics where low frequency radiowaves and magnetic fields act on the ferritin in the brain and body to open a TRPV1 ion channel that allows calcium ions to flow into the cell and turn on genes. If I were you I would start looking for exactly the precise frequency of radiowaves that will turn on the genes that encourage hair growth such as keratinocyte growth factor and vascular endothelial growth factor. Maybe extremely weak magnetic patches will work as well, but you would have to find exactly the right strength of magnetic field. (Stanley, S. A., Sauer, J., Kane, R. S., Dordick, J. S. & Friedman, J. M. (2014). Remote Regulation of Glucose Homeostasis Using Genetically Encoded Nanoparticles. Nature Medicine, 21, 92-98.) https://www.newscientist.com/article/2217050-a-hat-that-zaps-the-scalp-with-electricity-helps-reverse-male-balding/
ANOTHER STUDY WHERE ELECTRICAL ACTIVITY TRIGGERS FLOW OF CALCIUM IONS
A new article from Tufts University “Voltage gated calcium channels 'read' electric patterns in embryos to create cartilage and bone”. Prior studies have shown remarkable electrical patterns in developing embryos, some of which act like blueprints of the tissues and organs that eventually take shape as the embryo matures. The electrical patterns are created by cells pumping charged ions into and out of the cell membrane, creating a voltage potential across the membrane barrier. In analogy to cells of the nervous system, the membrane voltage potentials spread via electrical synapses and provide a way for cells to communicate with their neighbors and coordinate activity. https://phys.org/news/2019-10-voltage-gated-calcium-channels-electric.html?fbclid=IwAR0ey0wAbhW89Ddm_fOT6tWYPJAL6LCapRCaXBS39kLsKRLpPTYUFNsdLNY
The new study, conducted in mouse and chicken embryos, demonstrates that a voltage gated calcium channel (VGCC) embedded in the cell membrane, and triggered by voltage to allow calcium ions (Ca2+) to flow into the cell, sets off the expression of genes that guide differentiation to mature cells.
So I sent these people an email:
Maybe you should refer to findings in Radiogenetics where low frequency radio waves and magnetic fields manipulate the ferritin protein, a paramagnetic material, to open TRPV1 ion channel to allow calcium ions to enter the cell and trigger gene expression. Brain waves are extremely low frequency (ELF) radio waves and there are many research papers where ELF radio waves affect ‘calcium flux’. Maybe the brain waves coming from the embryo brain contains the info for embryonic development. See An Explanation of the Powers of Franz Mesmer on YouTube https://youtu.be/w3O6kUBcrqc

I wish to present a specific model that consciousness is generated by electronics, that our brain is an electronic device and that the brains of living creatures are connected electronic devices. Firstly the neural network is an integrated circuit. The neurons are logic gates that are either on or off; If they are on then an action potential will flow along the axon. This integrated circuit generates ELF radiowaves (brainwaves) in the following ways, 1. Ions flow thru the axon membrane as the action potential proceeds, 2. Orch-OR microtubule quantum vibrations generate EEG beat frequencies, 3. tPMET (trans-plasma membrane electron transfer) generates ELF radiowaves from the cytoplasm of the neuron. The specific neurons that fire will then generate a specific brainwave (EEG) frequency depending amongst other things on the speed of the action potential (some axons are myelinated) and this specific brainwave frequency contains information (signals) internally in the neural circuit and externally to other brains (electronic devices). These external brainwaves are normally received unconsciously by other brains, but they can be boosted in which case they are received consciously.

I have a theory about consciousness I would like to share. Consciousness is generated by electronics and that brains are connected electronic devices. This comes from my theories about Franz Mesmer. What started me on this was following research paper on radiogenetics. Note this is opening ion channels and is a nano-machine. A nano-machine opening ion channels by radiowaves has got electronics written all over it. A research team at Rockefeller University used electromagnetic waves to turn on insulin production to lower blood sugar in diabetic mice. A naturally occurring iron storage particle in the body, ferritin, when exposed to a radiowave or a magnetic field can activate an ion channel called TRPVI which in turn leads to the activation of an insulin producing gene. These two proteins, ferritin, and TRPVI acting together as a nano-machine can be used to trigger gene expression in vivo. And it is all done by radiowaves. (Stanley, S. A., Sauer, J., Kane, R. S., Dordick, J. S. & Friedman, J. M. (2014). Remote Regulation of Glucose Homeostasis Using Genetically Encoded Nanoparticles. Nature Medicine, 21, 92-98.) Also I am looking into tPMET (trans-plasma membrane electron transfer) They have picked this up with cancer cells that are giving off excessive electrical activity but it now appears that healthy cells have electron transfer from the inside to the outside of the cell which is probably involved in communication among cells and which would also be transmitting EMR (brainwaves). Indeed the EMR given off by tPMET probably is the communication between the cells! http://www.washington.edu/news/2019/07/01/play-a-video-game-using-only-your-mind/?fbclid=IwAR02hK-yq2qYBL_bpuiSwh2rfiEz4EiKfUIS3X3O7teGhl2HLQ4J3h3VSOU
These days there are all sorts of BCIs (brain-computer interfaces) and neural prosthetics where brain waves are carrying information. Technology has started to read thoughts directly from brainwaves and people are playing computer games just using their mind i.e. they're thinking about the moves. Experts have been telling me that brainwaves are caused by the movement of ions thru the membranes of the axon of neurons and it is true that the movement of ions thru membranes would give off EMR, but it's hard to see how the movement of ions could give off different frequencies for different states alpha beta etc and more precisely how this movement could carry precise information about specific thoughts. Ten years from now there will be quite sophisticated and accurate mind reading technology from brainwaves and for that to happen there has to be some correlation between the precise thought/word and the precise neuronal group that produces that precise word/thought. This can only come from the cytoskeleton of specific neurons and that means microtubules. Which recalls Orch-OR statement that microtubule quantum vibrations influence EEG beat frequencies. Microtubules have a potential difference and the core contains highly ionized water so it is effectively a nanotube that's conducting electricity and that is going to transmit and receive EMR. The cytoskeleton of the neuron is buzzing with electrical actvity that would be giving off brainwaves (ELF radiowaves).

THE START OF MIND READING TECHNOLOGY USING ANNs
Frontal, temporal and parietal lobes on left hemisphere of the brain formulate what you want to say (F7 T3 T5 P3) and cortical theta activity associated with focused arousal is primarily detected over temporal regions. A new research paper has used (DNN) deep learning to reconstruct human speech from the human auditory cortex which is also on the temporal lobe of the brain. What we are seeing here is the start of mind reading technology. It is my guess that in the future DNN will be able to decode EEG thought patterns coming from the EEG electrodes F7 T3 T5 P3 on the left hemisphere of the brain into intelligible human speech. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-018-37359-z
AN OPEN LETTER DATED 17TH JULY 2019 TO: Nima Mesgarani
Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, Columbia University, New York, NY, United States
Department of Electrical Engineering, Columbia University, New York, NY, United States
Your paper "Towards reconstructing intelligible speech from the human auditory cortex" is going to usher in a new era in brainwave research. In theory it should be possible to teach a DNN to read. You can read text to a subject which can then be picked up as brainwaves by a DNN from the auditory cortex. You can also give the actual text of what is read to the DNN and in this way it can 'learn' to associate the brainwaves with the actual text that is read. The amount of data that can be presented to a DNN in this way is virtually limitless and eventually the DNN could be taught to 'read' brainwaves in all the extant languages in the world.

DNNs will learn to simulate human brainwaves and communicate with other DNNs. They will learn to do many things that ‘machines cannot do’. For instance they will simulate the brainwaves from the math regions in the cortex to do mathematics the way humans do it only quicker and more accurately. They will learn brainwaves from the dopamine pathways to simulate human emotions and behavioral patterns. They will have access to all the data of the human race. Eventually we will build DNNs that are smarter than the human race collectively. The only thing they won’t be able to simulate is our ability to procreate. They will still need us to build maintain repair them and provide them with energy. Also they will have a much shorter built-in obsolescence period than humans. They will probably need to be upgraded every two-three years and replaced with a new model every ten years or so. As they are only learning brainwaves, that is to say things that humans have already thought, they will be incapable of original thinking.

In an earlier post I thought that the start of mind-reading technology as well as Elon Musk’s initiative to make EEG electrodes a thousand times more sensitive is going to mean that DNNs will be able to read human brainwaves to simulate many things that ‘machines cannot do’ like complicated math. I also thought that the DNNs would be able to learn brainwaves in the dopamine pathway to simulate human behaviors and emotions. However I thought that as these DNNs are only reading brainwaves that humans have already thought they would be incapable of original thinking. It has just occurred to me that in fact DNNs will be able to read the brainwaves while we are asleep. That is to say they will be able to read the thoughts coming from our unconscious mind, as well as all our dream content. The mind-blowing thing is DNNs will be able to read our thoughts that are actually unconscious to us. What this means is that DNNs will be able to derive inspiration for original thinking from the human unconscious mind. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-018-37359-z

All discussion about free will seems to ignore what Montaigne said even before Descartes "We cannot trust our reasoning. Thoughts just occur to us. We don't fully control them." Free will implies 'thinking' about alternatives and then adopting one of them. If the programming of our brain only allows us to 'think' of some alternatives how can we possibly be free to choose? https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/10.1098/rspb.2019.0510

BRAINWAVES FROM MIDBRAIN CARRY INFO FOR FETAL DEVELOPMENT
MAGNETIC TUNING AT THE NANOSCALE USING ION BEAMS
They are using ion beams which generate magnetic fields. This impacts on radiogenetics and magnetogenetics. Also impacts on the magnetic properties of brainwaves as they are generated by the flow of calcium ions thru axon membrane. The flow of the ions generates EMR and it's the EMR that carries the info. Any talk of 'bioelectrical' or 'chemoelectrical' is a complete misnomer. This is all about electronics and nanotechnology and quantum mechanics. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2019/11/191112110332.htm#:~:targetText=Physicists%20are%20working%20to%20produce,microscope%20to%20achieve%20this%20goal.
If anyone doubts that consciousness is generated by electronics and that our cerebral cortex is just like a television screen that we can smell taste and touch just like we can see and hear, they should consider that this new technology will give robots the sense of touch just like us.
A team of researchers at ETH Zurich in Switzerland has recently developed a multi-camera optical tactile sensor (i.e., a tactile sensor based on optical devices) that collects information about the contact force distribution applied to its surface. https://techxplore.com/news/2019-11-multi-camera-optical-tactile-sensor-enable.html
<In a research publication released 11/19, Todd Murphy suggests that consciousness is an underlying property of all magnetic fields, including the one in the brain (with its five million magnetite crystals per gram). The brain's magnetic field, coming from these microscopic magnets, "sees" the brain's electrical activity, letting us know what it's doing. The many positive and negative poles of the brain's magnets serve as in/out feedback channels, essential for awareness, allowing our brain's complex magnetic field to support vast feedback mechanisms.
Prof. Todd Murphy points out that electrical currents in brain cells also create magnetism (Maxwell's Equations), influencing the fields from the brain's magnetite. Its magnetic field (consciousness) "picks up," or resonates with, information encoded in neuronal electric pulses, coming from emotions, thoughts, and the senses.>

AN EXPLANATION OF THE POWERS OF FRANZ MESMER
Bradley York Bartholomew
In his lifetime Franz Anton Mesmer was branded a charlatan by the scientific community on account of his claim of being able to cure many maladies and medical problems through animal magnetism. Notwithstanding this, although his specific claim to possess the power of animal magnetism has been discounted, his methods have had a vast influence in every branch of mental healing and spiritual healing and healing through hypnotism, as well as New Age techniques that involve not only “the power of suggestion” but also the physical “laying on of hands.” The list of actual movements that have adopted Mesmer’s techniques include eclecticism, phrenology, Spiritualism, mind cure, Christian Science, homeopathy, transcendentalism, New Thought, Theosophy, psychoanalysis, osteopathy, chiropractic, anthroposophy, holistic health, positive thinking, New Age healing, hypnotism, biophysics, biomagnetism, magnetobiology and psychiatry. This article reviews Mesmer’s techniques, and gives a broad overview of all the other branches of mental and spiritual healing where his methods are still used in one way or another, and presents recent scientific research that completely vindicates Mesmer’s original claim to possess the power of being able to manipulate the “magnetic fluid” in the living organism. In a research article in Nature Genetics entitled Remote Regulation of Glucose Homeostasis Using Genetically Encoded Nanoparticles (2014) it has been found using techniques in radiogenetics that the ferritin in our bodies (a paramagnetic material) can be manipulated not only by low-frequency electromagnetic waves (radio waves) but also by magnetic fields. Brain waves are also low-frequency electromagnetic waves, and as it is well known that the brain waves of a healer/hypnotist become synchronized with that of the patient, it is proposed that brain waves play a part in what Mesmer originally called animal magnetism.
A handout at the convention:
Latest Research in Radiogenetics
In 2014, a research paper was published in Nature Genetics which launched a new direction in optogenetics which is known as radiogenetics (Stanley, Sauer, Kane, Dordick & Friedman, 2014). Radiogenetics will make it possible to remotely control biological targets in living animals without wires, implants, or drugs. A research team at Rockefeller University used electromagnetic waves to turn on insulin production to lower blood sugar in diabetic mice. A naturally occurring iron storage particle in the body, ferritin, when exposed to a radiowave or a magnetic field can activate an ion channel called TRPVI which in turn leads to the activation of an insulin producing gene. These two proteins, ferritin, and TRPVI acting together as a nano-machine can be used to trigger gene expression in vivo. And it is all done by radiowaves.
“The method allows one to wirelessly control the expression of genes in a living animal and could potentially be used for conditions like hemophilia to control the production of a missing protein. Two key attributes are that the system is genetically encoded and can activate cells remotely and quickly,” says Jeffrey Friedman, Marilyn M. Simpson Professor head of the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics at Rockefeller University. “We are now exploring whether the method can also be used to control neural activity as a means for noninvasively modulating the activity of neural circuits (“Radio genetics seeks to remotely control cells and genes,” 2014).
Radiogenetics is being heralded as being more effective than other systems in optogenetics that simply use light as the on/off switch which tend to be only effective near the skin and require permanent implants. Originally the researchers used low-frequency radio waves which heat or move the ferritin particles and the TRPVI which is situated in the membrane surrounding the cell opens up a channel allowing calcium ions to flow through and activate a piece of synthetic DNA implanted upstream to the gene they want to turn on. In this case, it was the gene that synthesizes the protein insulin, but it seems that in this way they can activate any gene of interest (“Radio genetics seeks to remotely control cells and genes,” 2014).
Interestingly the researchers were able to achieve the same result by manipulating the ferritin with a magnetic field, which obviously recalls the theories of Franz Mesmer in the 18th century about animal magnetism and the magnetic cure. It could well be the case that a hypnotist is able to channel his/her brain waves which are ELF radio waves to manipulate the ferritin in the cells and genes of his/her subjects. Mesmer himself stated that the magnets were immaterial to his treatment and what was essential was his state of mind towards the patient. He was willing the patient to be healed and there is a reasonable amount of authority for the proposition that the brainwaves (ELF radiowaves) of healer and patient become synchronized (Fahrion, et al., 1992)(Cade & Coxhead, 1996). Indeed one-on-one interlocution or close contact in general seems to have a mutual effect on the brain waves of the participants (Pérez et al., 2017)(Diego et al.,2004)(Mohr et al., 2017)(Rozenkrantz et al., 2017). I stress that this new research used low-frequency radio waves and that is precisely what brainwaves are, and that they apparently act in exactly the same way as a magnetic field.
“The use of a radiofrequency-driven magnetic field is a big advance in remote gene expression because it is non-invasive and easily adaptable,” says Johnathan Dordick, who is Howard P. Isermann, professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering and vice president of research at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
You don’t have to insert anything—no wires, no light systems—the genes are introduced through gene therapy. You could have a wearable device that provides a magnetic field to certain parts of the body and it might be used therapeutically for many diseases, including neurodegenerative diseases. It’s limitless at this point (“Radio genetics seeks to remotely control cells and genes,” 2014).
“In this current study, we’ve shown that by opening the TRPV1 channel to allow calcium ions to enter the cell, we can turn on a gene. Since neurons can be depolarized by calcium and other positively charged ions, such as those the TRPV1 channel controls, we hope that this system may be effective at regulating neural activity,” says co-first author Sarah Stanley, a senior research associate in Friedman’s lab (“Radio genetics seeks to remotely control cells and genes,” 2014).
It is well settled that the ferritin protein is widely expressed in the brain (Han, Day, Connor & Beard, 2002). And a whole new area of genetic engineering is being developed called 'magnetogenetics' specifically concerned with targeting ferritin in the dopamine pathway of the brain in order to remotely control and influence specific behavioral patterns (Wheeler, Smith, Ottolini, Barker, Purohit, Grippo, Gaykema, Spano, Beenhakker, Kucenas, Patel, Deppmann, & Güler, 2016). In an unrelated area of research it has been found that low frequency (RF) radio waves affect the expression of the c-Fos protooncogene in the brain (Jorge-Mora, Misa-Agustiño, Rodríguez-González, Jorge-Barreiro, Ares-Pena & López-Martín, 2011).
Bearing in mind that we are here dealing with supranormal phenomena so any effects, if they are found at all, will be extremely subtle, it should be possible to monitor the brain waves of persons exposed to magnets and low frequency radio waves and compare them with the brain waves of hypnotized people in the presence of their therapist, and ‘brainwashed’ followers in the presence of their cult leader or spiritual leader. Also Penrose-Hameroff Orch-OR theory states ‘Microtubule quantum vibrations (e.g. in megahertz) appear to interfere and produce much slower EEG "beat frequencies”.’ Microtubules are actually nanotubes and they have a positive and negative end which means there is a potential difference and the highly ionized water in the core of the microtubule will conduct electricity, and will display nanotechnology quantum effects (resonance). A nanotube conducting electricity will transmit and receive radio waves (EEG rhythm). Essentially this means that the brain is a sophisticated electronic device, and consciousness is generated by electronics and is essentially the same as what happens when the screen lights up on your mobile phone. This explains how the brain waves of healer/hypnotist and patient become synchronized. Essentially the brains of all living creatures are connected at the cellular and genetic level via brain waves (ELF radiowaves) just like all wirelessly connected electronic devices. Mesmer's animal magnetism is no different from what happens when you wave your credit card over a wireless payment device.

In an earlier blog The Demon in the Machine Paul Davies in his book by the same name asserts that there is heightened electrical activity in embryogenesis and in cancer cells.
An article in New Scientist entitled “We could kill cancer cells by hijacking their odd electrical current” tells us that cancer cells have tPMET (Trans-Plasma Membrane Electron Transfer) that is different from normal cells.
All biological cells use electrons to power themselves. In the early 2000s, however, it was discovered that cells can also send electrons outside their membranes along biological “relays” made of proteins and other molecules. The significance of this trans-plasma membrane electron transfer (tPMET) is not known, however it’s long been suspected that there is a link between the way cancer cells change their metabolism to spread and grow and changes to the way the cells do this trans-plasma electron transfer.
It is believed that this tPMET involves phosphorylation of sugars such as glucose. Another earlier blog The Science Delusion tells us of a discovery that our cells use a sugar code more complex than DNA to identify and interact with each other. It turns out that every type of cell in our bodies has a unique sugar coating. And whenever anything interacts with a cell, it must recognise that sugar code and use the appropriate secret handshake. The sugar code, known as the glycome, contains tens of different sugars that fit together in branched strings called glycans. Reading the sugar code isn’t just a case of decoding it letter by letter, but recognising the shape of each sugar and understanding what it means. The things that latch on to cell surface sugars in nature – the hands that do the grabbing – are proteins called lectins, which have internal cavities that fit snugly around specific sugars.
What we see here is a classic case of scientists talking about the same thing in different ways. One group of scientists are calling it tPMET and another group are calling it a chemical recognition of the sugar code. The fact is that these sugars on the outside of the cell are soluble and the cell in vivo is immersed in water. These sugars on the outside of the cell membrane create an electron rich liquid medium that is excellent for the conduction of electricity. Just like the sugar-phosphate backbone of the DNA that is hydrophilic and also soluble in water that creates an electron rich liquid medium for the conduction of electricity.
The living cell in vivo is an extremely complex electronic unit and any attempt to describe it in terms of ‘chemical reactions’ or even in terms of ‘chemoelectricity’ or ‘bioelectricity’ is simply missing the point. All communication in cells, whether intracellular or extracellular, takes place as a result of tuning into precise frequencies in the EMF (Electromagnetic Force) aka electronics aka EMR (Electromagnetic Radiation) aka biophotons aka optogenetics aka radiogenetics aka magnetogenetics.
Scientists from Sydney’s Garvan Institute of Medical Research have announced that the glycoprotein perlecan is involved in the fast spreading of pancreatic cancer. They hail this as some sort of breakthrough in cancer research. What they don’t seem to realize is that Glycoproteins are frequently present at the surface of cells where they function as membrane proteins or as part of the extracellular matrix. These cell surface glycoproteins play a critical role in cell–cell interactions and the mechanisms of infection by bacteria and viruses and cancers. Perlecan is hydrophilic and some of its domains are actually soluble in water. Perlecan is on the surface of cells and in the extracellular matrix and the modules of perlecan are connected like cars into one long diverse complex train. In other words the primary function of perlecan is the conduction of electricity for cell-to-cell communication and what’s more because it’s the water that is responsible for the conductivity it is conducting an alternating current (AC). In other words the electricity that is being conducted is giving off ELF radiowaves aka brainwaves. See CAF hierarchy driven by pancreatic cancer cell p53-status creates a pro-metastatic and chemoresistant environment via perlecan.

GUT BACTERIA IS ALSO ENGAGED IN ELECTRON TRANSFER
Meanwhile another breakthrough research paper has found that poo transplants choke tumors. The researchers showed that faecal microbiota transplants (FMT) from long-term human survivors prompted an immune response and stifled tumours. This is the latest and somewhat startling example of gut health playing a powerful part in treating challenging conditions. Maybe they should take a look at an article in ScienceDaily: Gut bacteria’s shocking secret: They conduct electricity. “To date, most electricity-generating bacteria have come from weird environments, but researchers have found more than 100 in the human microbiome, both pathogenic and probiotic. They were unsuspected because they employ a different and simpler extracellular electron transfer system, which may prove useful in creating bacterial batteries. Their electrogenic ability may be important in infectivity, or in how they ferment cheese and yogurt.” https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/09/180912133442.htm#targetText=Gut%20bacteria's%20shocking%20secret%3A%20They%20produce%20electricity&targetText=Summary%3A,microbiome%2C%20both%20pathogenic%20and%20probiotic
There is any number of research papers in the literature that electrical stimulation induces c-Fos proto-oncogene expression which is widely believed to be involved in cancer because it is responible for normal cell proliferation. See for example: Distribution of preganglionic terminals in the cervical sympathetic ganglia detected by the expression of c-Fos like protein after electric stimulation of the ventral root.

Hi I'm a new member to this group. I have got something to share with you relating to Rupert's thesis of the science delusion. You will be aware of LIGO that discovered gravitational waves a few years ago. They do this by sampling starlight and whenever they detect a 'wobble' in starlight they interpret this as gravitational waves caused by a massive collision somewhere near this star. They have recently made their measuring instruments more sensitive and they are now detecting around two blackhole collisions a month. They tell us they are sampling 650 million light years. Even if they were to continue to detect 12 blackhole collisions a year for the next 650 million years of light sampled that would mean that there are (650M x 12 x 2) 15 billion blackholes near us. But don't be alarmed. I got a feeling this is an obvious example of the Don's fake science. The truth (an unusual concept these days) is that the wobble in starlight is caused by light bending around random passing massive objects - asteroids, planets, comets etc.
