With new data coming from the LHC in the form of Beauty Quark experiments (yes, my frequent indignation at its demotion to Bottom Quark paid off) we know that quark matter takes many forms and some of those are still beyond peripheral vision. Here's a link to latest findings: home.cern/news/news/physics/lhcb-discovers-three-new-exotic-particles
Heartening it is to see new particles coming into focus, more heartening still that arguments now rage over quantum mechanical consciousness and the conditions in the brain which may be harbouring said phenomenon. This article from last year cites new research which could prove groundbreaking: singularityhub.com/2021/07/25/can-consciousness-be-explained-by-quantum-physics-new-research/
An article came out in 2020 from which I quote: "The neurons in the brain oscillate in activity in a coherent pattern during specific thought processes. This synchronous oscillation may be what allows communication between different regions of the brain and establishes memory. Different frequency oscillations occur at the same locations in the brain in order to avoid information traffic when communicating to other regions of the brain. Quantum mechanics may explain how so many different subsets of oscillating connections in the brain can be generated at once.
One way these oscillations may occur is if the microtubules within neurons are constructed like quantum computers. Microtubules are like the brain of a brain cell. They’re rapidly changing structural molecules that respond instantly to mental events by reconfiguring the structure of dendrites and axons, the input and output branches of the neuron. The array of microtubules in the brain may exhibit a quantum effect similar to those in quantum computers."
Echo my missives on microtubules and I daresay you'll notice some ground being re-surfaced there:
Or this one, which didn't hit so highly in popularity but perhaps says more about the subject matter:
Whether you're a newbie or an old hand at all this, have fun and enjoy your explorations. If anyone tries to kick you off a forum for asking the wrong questions, or gives you a hard time for holding true to your views, get in touch with me. I have a few T-shirts in those kinds of departments.
Stay with it, enjoy the journey... see you soon! x
