    Doc Keith – I just love getting your emails which alert me to a new piece of the puzzle that you are putting together. I’ve been harping on about this brain-is-not-mind theme for years and it is rather like pushing the proverbial uphill. This is brilliant stuff, and a great resource to call upon to further my case! Thank you for your work – and it’s great to be on the same page with you!

    Enjoyed the read! All experience is quantum in nature …an illusion that each person is creating for themselves. It all seems very real!!!!

    OK the text in this blog is like a script for the video but
    anyway wonderful information like this needs to be repeated
    for us brought up with the “oldfashioned” science and so
    stubborn logic mind.
    Again thanks very much Scott-Mumby for something of the
    best “brain-news” I have received for a lifetime.
    cheers
    Olav

    I have studied this concept, for many years, and I was very inspired by this presentation!

    Interesting approach Keith – however there has to be sufficient neural tissue and brain stem to control basic organ and life functions – surely?
    If the maths student had no neural tissue he would have been both blind and deaf, with none of the five physical senses. A bad interface.
    I think that this does however, go a long way in making the point that we are ‘not our brain’, or just some lump of slowly decaying organic matter, and that we are in fact multidimensional rather than unitary state organisms. Everything in this universe, both animate and inanimate share this to a lesser or greater degree.
    I have always viewed the brain (higher functions) as the interface between mind and body. Like a computer interface board full of RAM chips and a processor, these provide for short term memory and interactive functioning. This couples with our diurnal cycle, and rather than the huge potential postulated for brain memory, I believe the brain’s ‘Ram’ can only accommodate twelve hours of data input before requiring ‘download’ to more permanent ‘mind memory’ and ‘universal database’. Hence for twelve hours we have data input that no computer could store (yet), but when the brain’s Ram is full, unless ‘downloaded’ -(during sleep period, and you even get to watch an interactive movie/ during dream state/ rem sleep, because the download process can be rather unpleasant), or, with the computer model, it needs to be rebooted.
    I don’t know what the brain’s capacity is in bytes, but I do know that it’s capacity equates to twelve hours of perceived time. Once you exceed the twelve hours of ON, all functioning degenerates, and if it were possible to remain awake, you would eventually die. Most people have experienced some measure of sleep deprivation and it’s effects. (My personal experience is 7 days -and then things start getting really interesting!)

    I concur regarding the Pineal gland. The seat of the soul is in every molecule of DNA.
    Rick Strassman’s explanation makes a lot of sense. By DMT we enter, and by DMT we leave – 2 hours after cardiac arrest. A critically important two hours.
    Brian.

    As far as I can tell, the brain stem and the spinal cord are tail parts of the brain; so I suspect that what might happen, is the brain would just develop lower down in the body and the senses in the skull would feed signals down to an extended brain, abnormally low in the body, probably with far more fierce folding, to get the necessary surface area, and even into the chest cavity. If possible, someone with such a condition may be far more easily killed or mentally crippled by neck injury, spinal injury, torso injury, or infection.

    I suspect that there are a lot more physical dimensions than we can normally sense, so it may be possible that our visible brain is only a three dimensional protuberance from higher dimensional space; this may explain why we have not got very far in creating a usable artificial brain in 3D space, it would also demolish a lot of mystic hot air about morphic whatever! The novel Spaceland explores the idea of a higher dimension space and gifting of higher sensory senses, without all the mystic waffle.

    […] 1. The notion that the mind/consciousness is more than the brain. Consciousness uses the brain while it is functional but not not need the brain. Brahm cites the case of a university student with “virtually no brain”; there are interesting discussions on this here and here. […]

    Greetings!:…

    It is my view that THE MOST ADVANTAGEOUS AREA in brain research today… specific to an investigation into the brain’s PRIMARY CONTROL MECHANISM… is the juncture between the work on the lateral frontal pole prefrontal cortex (see, Doctors Franz-Xaver Neubert, Matthew Rushworth, and Rogier B. Mars, of OxfordU… see Google result, Scientists Appear To Have Located the Conscience!), and the continuation of the work of the late Dr. John Lorber, involving lucidic hydrocephalic subjects (such as that reported in Lorber’s paper, Is Your Brain Really Necessary?)! For!… IT MUST BE REVEALED HOW MENTALLY ABLE HYDROCEPHALIC SUBJECTS ARE ABLE TO EXHIBIT COGNITIVE CONTROL, WITHOUT THE PRESENCE OF THE LATERAL FRONTAL POLE PREFRONTAL CORTEX! And!… the ONLY TECHNOMA that will provide sufficient detail associated with this latent control mechanism within hydrocepalic subjects, is a Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (S.Q.U.I.D.) applied to what is known as the P300 Complex (the P300 Complex, available in Lucidic Hydrocephalic subjects!)! And incidentally, the P300 Complex has already been examined in “normal subjects (see researchers, L. KAUFMAN, Y. OKADA, J. TRIPP and H. WEINBERG)”!
