Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just excellent discussion, folks! A little woo at times, but I'll check oout little atoms.

Several years ago, in the Year of Windows 95, I jammed up a friend's computer by sending him a large animated gif embedded in a discussion by Dr William Calvin www.williamcalvin.com showing how a thought might be perceived in a half mm of the upper surface of the hexagonal cells making up the neocortex by analyzing the interactions of the firings of the cells.

I believe the trick had something to do with the hexagonal geometry and how the cells fired every other one, skipping over their neighbors and generating strange patterns. Like most humans, I'm a sucker for patterns.

Calvin was also speculating at the time about possible quantum effects in wave patterns of the nano size tubular spikes on the nerve fibers.

I'll see if I can find it again.

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!
