Geon BrainMindSoul



Recent studies have provided strong evidence that consciousness arises from globally synchronized alpha oscillations (Chapter 5 and Chapter 7). At a more fundamental level, consciousness may originate from the "gravitational geon" which is a bound state of gravitational (GR) waves. Free GR waves will travel at the speed of light. The huge number of GR waves produced by the global synchronization of alpha oscillations may create a bound state (geon) around the brain, through two physical mechanisms:

Image Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders may arise from a common pathogenic cascade: BDNF deficiency > miR-132 down-regulation > Tau level up > Hyperexcitability > Calcium overload. Over-production of Tau proteins has been demonstrated to cause hyperexcitability. The activation of mTOR promotes Tau production. Therefore, mTOR activation enhances excitability. This novel mechanism is now well-documented (see Epilepsy and mTOR). The model agrees with the hyperfunction theory of aging and explains why mTOR plays a crucial role in aging.
