THE REAL CAUSE OF GLOBAL-WARMING

global warming

A research paper published in prestigious scientific journal Nature has offered a new cause of global-warming and the scientific community don’t like it. It upsets all their theories about carbon emissions and the burning of fossil fuels (the so-called green-house emissions) and upsets all their fictitiously and imaginatively crafted computer-models that they are indoctrinating the school-children with as being the holy grail that the ecologically responsible should regurgitate by rote.

This new theory argues that it is actually solar cycles that are responsible for global warming and that it’s got nothing to do with green-house emissions. The orthodox theory is that this global warming only started in recent times and that it is the humans burning fossil fuels that is doing it. In other words the orthodox theory totally ignores that fact that there once was an Ice Age and for us to actually emerge from the Ice Age the world has had to be gradually warming ever since. The orthodox theory assumes that the world emerged from the Ice Age for reason or reasons unknown and then miraculously the climate of the Earth became totally stable until the industrial revolution which was energized by the burning of coal. And presto we have global warming.

If the orthodox ecologically responsible scientists bothered to read something other than their own peer-reviewed scientific literature they might find that in fact the world has been gradually warming ever since the Ice Age. For instance if they read The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Gibbon they would learn that 2000 years ago the rivers Rhine Danube Seine and Thames were all frozen solid in winter. They would learn that it was so cold in the Mediterranean that the warring armies had to call a truce till Spring. They would learn that Greece and Syria were snowbound in winter. If they read Plato they would learn that Socrates had the quaint habit of standing all night in the snow on one bare foot while he was contemplating his profundities. I estimate that the average winter temperature in western Europe has risen about 20 degrees Celsius in the past 2000 years.

A simple Google search reveals “Over the last 150 years, carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations have risen from 280 to nearly 380 parts per million (ppm). The fact that this is due virtually entirely to human activities is so well established that one rarely sees it questioned.” And the ecologically responsible scientists seem to think that that fact alone is the cause of the fact that the world is nowhere near as cold as it used to be. They have no proof whatsoever that this infinitesimally small increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is the reason the principal rivers in western Europe never freeze rock solid in winter anymore.

This new research paper actually brings us hope. The mere fact that there was an Ice Age means that the world climate is going in cycles; that it is not totally static. According to this new theory long-term oscillations of the solar background magnetic field are correlated with cyclical increases in solar irradiance and this is what is causing the current increase in terrestrial temperatures. This theory correlates the cold period talked about by Gibbon in ancient Greece and Rome to “Homer's grand solar minimum” which is included in their predictions. According to this theory the global temperature will continue to increase another 2.5 degrees Celsius for another six centuries (till 2600 C.E) and then will begin to decrease again. This theory actually gives us hope for the future but the ecologically responsible mainstream scientists don’t want to hear a word of it. It makes their imaginative speculative and totally fictitious computer simulations totally superfluous. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-019-45584-3

THE REVOLUTION IN BRAINWAVE RESEARCH

Bradley York Bartholomew

Independent Researcher, France

This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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

greenhouse

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:

I read this article in New Scientist and strangely I did not see any mention of magnetic fields or low frequency radiowaves. You do know about radiogenetics I hope. There is a research paper in Nature Genetics entitled -Remote Control of Glucose Homeostasis using Genetically Encoded Nanoparticles - where it is found that low frequency radiowaves act in exactly the same way as a magnetic field to manipulate the ferritin to open the TRPV1 ion channel that allows calcium ions to flow into the cell and trigger the expression of genes.
 
Not only does an electric current create a magnetic field but an alternating current (AC) emits radiowaves at same frequency as the current. 
 
Attached is a talk I am giving about this at Internationaler Hypnosekongress in Zurich in November. The talk is about the revolution in brainwave research that are likewise ELF radiowaves that can act in exactly the same way as a magnetic field. Go figure!

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

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.

 

Posted in Facebook Group Bio-AI on 22nd July 2019

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

ELECTRON TRANSFER IN NORMAL AND CANCER CELLS AND IN THE DNA

sugar code on cells

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. Nature Communications, 2019; 10 (1) https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-019-10968-6

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.

HOW TO BUILD A CONSCIOUS ROBOT

mesmer poster

Posted in Facebook group Bio-AI on 6th July 2019.

The AI people will be interested in my poster presentation at Parapsychological Convention in Paris 4-6th July 2019 An Explanation of the Powers of Franz Mesmer cos if animal magnetism is correct it will be possible to build a conscious robot. There is now radiogenetics and magnetogenetics where magnets and low frequency radiowaves can affect the ferritin in our brains and the expression of genes. Brainwaves are ELF radiowaves and it is argued that this is what Mesmer called animal magnetism. This explains Penrose-Hameroff Orch-OR as well. They state "Microtubule quantum vibrations (e.g. in megahertz) appear to interfere and produce much slower EEG "beat frequencies”. 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 than from what happens when you wave your credit card over a wireless payment device. If consciousness is electronic it will be possible to build an AI robot that is conscious.

AN EXPLANATION OF THE POWERS OF FRANZ MESMER

An abstract of a poster presentation at the 62nd Annual Convention of Parapsychological Association in Paris on 4-6th July, 2019.

AN EXPLANATION OF THE POWERS OF FRANZ MESMER

Bradley York Bartholomew

Independent Researcher, France
 


ABSTRACT

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).

Suggested Experiments

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.
