- The EPR experiment conducted by Albert Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen confirmed ‘action at a distance’. Thanks to quantum energy, we are continuously connected to those around us, especially those closest. In 1935, Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen conducted the EPR Paradox experiment, which identified the ‘action at a distance’ phenomenon. Experiments with action at a distance show us that, thanks to quantum energy, we are continuously connected to those around us, especially those closest or those we recently contacted, like a wireless network connection.1
- The EPR-phenomenon, described by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen, according to which particles, no matter how far apart from each other – practically spread all over the universe – know one another, can synchronize with each other and they actually do so. But what does it mean? It means that everything is linked to everything. If you think about a long-distance-effect, you mean signals or something like that, but this phenomenon has nothing to do with signals. It is rather a situation, in which you think let’s say of London just now…. “Then London is here”.2
- According to the quantum theory the entangled particles behave as if they possessed an immediate connection between each other capable of traversing the entire universe. Because everything – including us – consists of particles, could the entanglement explain the paranormal phenomena like the telepathy? Studies about biochemical processes in living cells showed furthermore correlations in particles characteristics, in the way they appear in the entanglement. The result is that the entanglement has been considered as an important factor in functioning of the human mind. The physics Nobel Prize winner Brian Josephson from Cambridge University goes even further: he believes that the entanglement could in fact be the long-sought cause of telepathy.3
- EPR experiment. Connection between distant human brains was proven by the studies of Mexican neurologist Jacobo Grinberg-Zylberbaum. There is a proof that this absurd idea is not far from the truth. The experiments conducted by Mexican neuropsychologist Jacobo Grinberg-Zylderbaum and his colleagues, along with roughly 20 other studies, directly prove the idea of quantum nonlocal connection between human brains.4
- 60 billion neutrinos per second crackle on every square centimeter of us (Ghostly Particle Hunter).5
- Even a man radiates about 5000 mysterious ghostly particles, because of atoms decay in human body.6
- The fact that according to the Einstein’s equation everything is energy, means of course that love is energy as well– and that it has a frequency like every other form of energy.7
- The Schumann resonance frequency of 7.83 Hz corresponds exactly to brain frequency. We are inseparably relied to the Earth and our brain stands in resonance with it.8
- We and the Others. Vittorio Gallese and Giovanni Buccino: from mirror neurons to compassion. Every individual has a natural tendency to ‘co-resonate’ with its fellow species. We do it in very simple situations, like those described, but also when we share with others moments of great pain or joy. A more recent discovery in the field of the neurophysiology lets us explain the mechanisms that our brain uses to let us understand other people’s actions and ‘co-resonate’ with them: the discovery of mirror neurons.9
- Programming of a matrix?
As said above information is gathered in the universal field (background field, psy-field, zero point field, ‘sea of all possibilities’), stored there and then intelligently (target oriented) utilized and combined with sense and meaning. At this point you can make a certain analogy to the internet: Individual contributions create an immensely big information field. In the universal super position stage (‘sea of all possibilities’) qubits can correspond without limits through time and space virtually instantly and not locally, that is with an ‘infinite’ capacity. This information capacity is estimated to unimaginable 10107 state possibilities per Planck-volume. (Planck scale: 1033 cm is the fundamental smallest unit. The Planck volume is then 10~33to the power of 3 [= 10-99] cubic centimeter big. The Planck volume can change within the Planck time of 10"41 seconds).
All interactions in the universe transmit not only energy but also information. Particles not only collide but calculate as well. With advancing calculation the reality develops (Lloyd 2006).
Quantum spins are subject to entanglement, this has long been known. Huping Hu and his wife Maoxin Wu used this knowledge to try out something. Is it possible to entangle the spins of water molecules with the spins of drugs and find then the effect of drugs in water? Exactly this works and is reproducible. The condition: To obtain the energy for entanglement a coherent source is necessary, like a laser, a magnetic field, or a microwave. If you drink such an entangled water, the result are symptoms as if a drug – in this case an anesthetic – was taken (Hu/Wu 2006).10
- What Heisenberg discovered was like a great bang: the subjective observer changes the seemingly objective reality. Or, more radically: There is no objective reality at all. Everything is in a flow. The decisive factor is always the awareness having an impact on the events – the mind forms the matter. This recognition was obviously a shock for the mainstream science. A new conception of the world was forged and whirled old certainties, for hardliner a provocation.11
- About 200 years after Newton Albert Einstein presented his famous equation E = mc2; according to it energy and matter remain in such a fundamental relation, that they are one and the same.
We are connected with everything in the quantum field Like everything in the universe we are also in a way connected with a sea of information that exists beyond the physical space and time. Although we don’t come into contact with physical elements in the quantum field and we are not even close to them, we can however influence them and we are in turn influenced by them. The physical body consists of organized energy and information patterns, united with everything in the quantum field. You and all people send out a particular energy pattern or signature. Each material thing emits steadily particular energy patterns loaded with information. Your fluctuating mental state changes consciously or unconsciously depending on those signatures from one moment to the next, because you are more than just a physical body: You are awareness expressing various mental levels through body and brain.12
- There is an interesting experiment carried out with different couples. One person stayed in an electromagnetically shielded room, whereas the other was told to think about his/her partner. The EEG-measurements revealed the sudden presence of brain waves identic to those of his/her isolated partner. Matter doesn’t exist actually! They say that matter does not consist of matter but of waves related to one another and exchanging information. Thus the idea of the world of separations has been abandoned. Everything in the whole universe is related or, in the language of quantum physicists, quantum entangled. Everything exchanges permanently information with everything. For this reason the quantum physics is also called information physics or physics of relations.13
- Kevin Kelly, We are star dust
Where are we from? The explanation that we were made in stars sounds profound, elegant, and attractive to me. It implies that most atoms in all of us consist of smaller particles created in the oven of long gone stars. Only our archaic blocks of hydrogen were born before stars.14
- In connection with the universe I can hardly find something more poetical than the fact, that in the end every atom of our body was once on a star that exploded. What’s more, the atoms of my left hand stem probably from a different star than those of the right hand. We are all literally star children and our body consists of star dust.
- Planets move around the Sun in elliptic orbits.
- The connecting line (‘beam of light’) between a planet and the Sun scans in identical periods the same spaces.
- The square of the circulation time of a planet is in direct proportion to the third power of the big trajectory half-axis.
These rules build the foundation of Newton’s derivation of universal laws of gravity formulated almost a hundred years later.15
- The cosmic radiation
Richer in energy than the greatest accelerator
Our Earth is constantly bombarded by highly energetic atomic nuclei from space, described as cosmic radiation, because its influence increases with the height in the atmosphere. The incoming atomic nuclei reflect the elemental abundances in the universe: hydrogen nuclei (protons) are the most frequent with approx. 87%. In addition to this are around 12% helium nuclei (alpha particles) and around 1% heavier atomic nuclei.
The kinetic energy of nuclei covers a very large energy field and they are the rarer the higher is their kinetic energy. In the range of several billion electronvolts (GeV) many particles per square meter hit the upper Earth’s atmosphere. They may originate from our Sun.16
- When two quantum objects, for example electrons or photons, come into contact with each other, their quantum states (i.e. the mathematical descriptions of their features) combine or cross each other. From this moment the destinies of the quantum objects remain closely interwoven, regardless of how far away from each other they could move in the future.17
- Actually the picture of a series of buttons being pressed is much too cumbersome and linear to match the impressive ability of subconsciousness to process data. It is estimated, that it can handle in proportion to the much bigger weight of the subconsciousness brain 40 million nerve impulses per second. In contrast, the smaller, conscious, prefrontal cortex can manage only 40 nerve impulses per second. It means: The subconsciousness is 40 million times faster at processing information than the consciousness.18
- Our thoughts are extremely powerful.
Like radio signals our thoughts transmit our convictions and expectations into the quantum field (which I call the field of the limitless potential, FP). And what they draw in our life, is what matches exactly the waves radiated by us. Quantum physicists have proved that it was impossible to observe something without influencing it. It is called the observer effect. This effect turns on its head about everything, we have believed to know so far about the functioning of the world. But the possibilities that it opens are simply hallucinating! Then it means that:
- We are not surrounded by the 3-D reality constituting everything that exists, as we have thought.
- We are not helpless victims.
- A whole swarm of multidimensions has been waiting to be used creatively by us.19
- The human brain consists of around 100 billion nerve cells (a) whose 30 to 80 micrometer big cell bodies are connected to one another by means of sending and receiving extensions: axons and dendrites (b). The information transfer takes place in some hundred nanometer big contact points, the synapses. When an electrical signal reaches the pre-synapse, messenger substances are released, which arrive to the pre-synapse through the synaptic gap and from there emit again an electrical signal.20
- Possible Without Chemistry: Electrical Synapses
Almost all contacts, through which the signals travel from one nerve cell to another, belong to the chemical synapses type. Here electrical impulses provoke the release of chemical messenger substances, which get through the synaptic gap to the neighboring cell, to release from there an electrical signal (see fig. on the right). It’s cumbersome and costs time.
A transmission of electrical signals through synapses takes place significantly faster. The synapses consist of proteins, the so called connexins developing tiny canals between neighbor cells. In this way they allow a direct, almost delay-free transfer of electrical pulses. Such connections are situated for example in heart muscles and ensure that they contract in a rapid and coordinated manner.21
- Inside you there is also a world of waves
Thus you live not only in a world swinging into forms and back out again, where there is an unlimited number of possible realities developing simultaneously, where everything swings and energy waves spread in all directions, but you swing in your body too, in the microcosm of your personal life.
I have been often asked the question: where does the energy come from? What is the source of supply? Could it dry up one day? The most important answer to this is: We deal here with a phenomenon that most of people haven’t understood yet in its entire infinite extent.
Everything is energy, this is the most advanced scientific and also the ancient spiritual definition of the universe. That’s why energies are not only capable to create and maintain us and our universe, but also to protect and heal us. It’s due to unhindered energy flows that we can have a healthy and happy life, in spite of all daily burdens. The quantum physicists answer these questions with a calm consistency. In the end, they say, the whole universe is a conglomerate of wave patterns. A homogeneous system allowing a differentiation only at the perception level. Nevertheless a substantial opposition of matter and energy could no longer be upheld.22
- On the other hand, the question, where the matter takes its energy from, remains a puzzle to quantum physicists. Elementary particles like electrons for example obtain their energy from a source being obviously beyond our space-time. In fact some physicists managed to calculate that electrons have almost an eternal life.
Let’s look closer at what the term universe (Universus) means, the word derives from Latin. Universe means literally entire. It consists of ‘unsus’ and ‘versus’, which can be translated as »turned into unity«. The particularity of this term lies in its universal validity claim: The universe is formed by the totality of phenomena, developments and movements.
However it is precisely the Earth’s magnetic field, which marks an intersection of universal energies. Because it varies and these variations depend namely on influences of extraterrestrial vibrations. The primary resonance frequency of the Earth is 7.5 to 8 Hz. It results from the physical laws of a cavity resonator responding to frequencies from the universe. The physicist Schumann formulated in the nineteen-forties a corresponding hypothesis based on his calculations. Only decades later it was possible to confirm its correctness by measurements.23
- Suddenly I have discovered that a cell life is determined by its physical and energetic environment and not by its genes. Positive thoughts have a powerful effect on the behavior and genes, but only if they coincide with the actual subconscious programming. Good vibrations, bad vibrations, and the energy language. The school medicine has largely ignored the role of the energy as an information carrier, but applied noninvasive scanning technics, which read precisely such energy fields. The quantum physicists have developed devices allowing the analysis of frequency emission of specific chemical substances. These devices are capable to establish the molecular composition of materials and objects. For the medicine they were developed further in order to allow reading of the energy spectrum emitted by our body tissues and organs. As the energy traverses the body easily, these modern devices can recognize maladies by using noninvasive methods like computer tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography. Doctors detect malfunctions inside the body, because the spectral energy of healthy tissues differs from that of ill tissues.24
- Let me begin with the subatomic particles, the electrons and the quarks. They have a specific spin, so they execute a rotating movement. The spin axis rotates in a direction, which can be determined by measurements. But strange things happen during such measurements. Quantum physicist Paul Davies realized a successful experiment which in the meantime became legendary. He constructed a magnetic field and thus determined the direction of spin axis rotation. The directions of other spin axes should be determined relatively to this reference direction, however, without the magnetic field. The researcher takes measurements and sees that the axes of electrons rotate without field exactly in the same direction that was earlier determined by him as the reference direction within the constructed magnetic field. It was as if the electrons outside the field were infected. Davies repeated the measurements several times and the spin was always parallel to the field. After that Davies constructed the magnetic field with a new direction. And immediately the spin axes of the examined particles outside the field changed accordingly. The pre-set rotation was thus reproduced by the particles, describes Davies this phenomenon. It seems as if the particles knew the intention of the researcher and chose always the direction defined earlier as reference.
Once again a reminder: coherence is the interference or overlapping ability of waves, whereas the field amplitudes of spatially different photon sources reinforce or diminish mutually. In this way an organized state occurs, where waves build a cohesive communication field and are highly aligned with one another; in case of not coherent (chaotic or thermal) photons the interferences break in a very short time.25
- Your body is made up of 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (7 octillion) atoms.26
- Everything in your world, everything you touch, regardless of its density or size, is basically a collection of electrical charges interacting with the omnipresent ocean of energy fields, like electromagnetic resistance. As later stated by Hal, mass does not equal energy: mass is energy.27
- We are composed of the same elementary particles as everything else in our physical world. For starters, let’s take the roughly 102? elementary particles (quarks and electrons) composing our body. About 100 million neurons, which compose our brains, continuously transmit electrical signals, which require movement of roughly sextillions of atoms, mainly sodium, potassium, and calcium ions. Three quarters of our body are composed of water particles, which are replaced more or less once a month, while the skin cells and red blood cells are replaced every few months.28
- Entrainment is a term in physics, which means that two oscillating systems fall into synchrony. It was coined in 1665 by the Dutch mathematician Christiaan Huygens, after he discovered that two of his clocks with pendulums standing in close proximity to each other had begun to swing in unison.
It is also related to resonance, or the ability of any system to absorb more energy than normal at a particular frequency (the number of peaks and troughs in one second). Every vibrating object, including an electromagnetic wave, has its own preferential frequencies, called ‘resonant frequencies’, where it finds vibrating the easiest. When it ‘listens’ or receives a vibration from somewhere else, it tunes out all pretenders and only tunes into its own resonant frequency. It is a bit like a mother instantly recognising her child among a mass of schoolchildren. Planets have orbital resonances. Our sense of hearing operates through a form of entrainment: different parts of a membrane of the inner ear resonate to different frequencies of sound. Resonance even occurs in the seas, as in the tidal resonance of the Bay of Fundy at the northeast end of the Gulf of Maine, near Nova Scotia. Armour discovered neurotransmitters in the heart that signal and influence aspects of higher thought in the brain. McCraty discovered that touch and even mentally focusing on the heart cause brainwave entrainment between people. When two people touched while focusing loving thoughts on their hearts, the more ‘coherent’ heart rhythms of the two began to entrain the brain of the other.29
- The self-regulating cosmos
The steady unfolding of cosmic order has led to the formation of complex structures on all scales of size. Astronomically speaking, the smallest structures are to be found in the solar system. It's astonishing that, although the motions of planets have long provided one of the best examples of the successful application of the laws of physics, we still don’t have proper understanding of the origin of the solar system. The planetary orbits possess an unusual, even mysterious, degree of order. For example, the famous Bode’s law (actually due to the astronomer Titius) which concerns the distances of the planets from the Sun. It turns out that the simple formula rn = 0.4 + 0.3 x 2n, where rn is the orbital radius of planet number n from the Sun measured in units of the Earth’s orbital radius, fits to all the planets except Neptune and Pluto within a few per cent. Bode’s law was able to correctly predict the existence of the planet Uranus, and even predicts the presence of a ‘missing’ planet where the asteroid belt is located. In spite of this success, there is no agreed theoretical basis for the law. Either the orderly arrangement of the planets is a coincidence, or some as yet unknown physical mechanism has operated to organize the solar system in this way.
Gravity: the fountainhead of cosmic order
Of the four fundamental forces of nature, only gravitation acts across cosmological distances. In this sense, gravity powers the cosmos. It is responsible for bringing about the large-scale structure of the universe, and it is within this structure that other forces perform their roles. It has long been appreciated by physicists and astronomers that gravity is peculiar in the way that it organizes matter. The key to the unique structuring capabilities of gravity is its universally attractive nature and long range. Gravity pulls on every particle of matter in the universe and cannot be screened. Its effects are therefore cumulative and escalate with time. The lesson of EPR is that quantum systems are fundamentally nonlocal. In principle, all particles that have ever interacted with one another belong to a single wave function – a global wave function containing a stupendous number of correlations. One could even consider (and some physicists do) a wave function for the entire universe. In such a scheme the fate of any given particle is inseparably linked to the fate of the cosmos as a whole, not in the trivial sense that it may experience forces from its environment, but because its very reality is interwoven with that of the rest of the universe.30
- To begin with, for you to be here now, trillions of drifting atoms had somehow to assemble in an intricate and curiously obliging manner and create yourself. It’s an arrangement so specialized and particular, that it has never been tried before and will only exist once. For many years ahead, we hope these tiny particles will uncomplainingly engage in all the billions of deft, co-operative efforts necessary to keep you intact and let you experience the supremely agreeable, but generally underappreciated. state known as existence.
Not an atom’s width of space remains unused. There is activity everywhere. Everything is ruled by electrical energy. Most of us probably don’t feel it, but we are all electrical cells. The food we eat and the oxygen we breathe are combined in the cells into electricity. The reason we don’t give each other massive shocks or scorch the sofa when we sit down is that it is all happening on a tiny scale: a mere 0.1 volts travelling distances measured in nanometres. However, scale that up and it would translate as electrical fields of 100 per metre, much stronger than the core of lightning.31
- Rizzolatti concluded that within the brain of both primates and humans there must be no distinction between observation and action. To make sense of the riot of experience around us we can only imagine it by mentally undergoing it ourselves. We understand the actions of others by simulating the entire experience from a personal vantage point, as though it were happening to us. Rizzolatti realised that they had uncovered something fundamental in the neurobiology of comprehension. He began referring to the phenomenon as a ‘mirror effect’, because the neurons had a dual purpose: to impel the muscles to act and to take note of action in others.
Convinced that they had uncovered an important means by which the brain connects with the outside world, Rizzolatti and his team wrote up a modest paper detailing a year of their research and sent it off to the prestigious science journal Nature, only to have it rejected out of hand as not sufficiently interesting to anyone outside of neuroscience. Through a personal connection, Rizzolatti eventually managed to publish the paper in the Journal of Experimental Brain Research. Five years later, after the paper was widely read and its full implications digested around the world, Brain, the most important journal of neurology, welcomed an updated version of their original research and published it immediately.
We not only mimic others’ emotions, but we also feel those emotions deep within our body. We are so attuned to the emotional landscape surrounding us, that a positive or negative environment affects our body and its ability to function. Natural killer cells – the immune system’s front line of defence against cancer and many viruses – are profoundly reactive to stress in our lives, particularly social stressors. Large dips in the number and activity of these cells have been observed during arguments and even minor conflicts.32
- From the beginning, any two people coming together as a couple search for similarities. The more similarities they find, the more they believe they belong together, and the more certain they are that their love is everlasting.
We always look for ourselves in others. If we’re on the same wavelength as our partner, crises or differences of opinion won’t set as apart. Every relationship goes through a crises, especially the longer the relationship. But crisis can also mean catharsis and healing. That is the deeper meaning of crisis. We will grow, and we heal unsettled childhood concerns. This can often put a strain on the relationship. But a couple that is in resonance will survive any stress test. Crisis is mastered together. Nothing in the world can put to question the feeling of belonging together.33
- There is a school of thought within neuroscience that suggests free will is a myth, that the preconscious brain informs the conscious mind, which then acts as if it’s making a decision – when in fact, our course of action was already decided before we realised it. Some people are concerned that if this is true, love could be like quantum physics, in which the mere act of observing two entangled particles changes their characters. If we became aware of the brain mechanisms of love, could we really wreck it?34
- Why are our feet glued to the ground?
In a word: gravity! Gravity is a universal force of attraction between all masses. As far as we know, everything in the universe feels it. Force of gravity, though weak, grows with mass. While negligible for small bodies, it’s appreciable for big bodies – Earth, Sun, galaxy.
What protects us from the dangers of space?
Charged particles, like protons (hydrogen nuclei) and electrons, zip though space at near light speed. High energy makes them dangerous. Earth’s magnetic field deflects these particles and keeps most away. Moon and Mars (very little field) are the most dangerous places.
What is it like in cosmic space?
In fact, interplanetary space contains about 10 atoms per cm3 (a good terrestrial vacuum 100 000 & air at sea level 30 billion billion).
Are we made of stardust?
The universe, with its black holes, nebulae, & exploding stars, seems unconnected with our lives. Nothing could be further from the truth. The iron in your blood, calcium in your bones, oxygen that fills your lungs… All forged inside stars that died before the Earth was born. Astrologers are not guilty of being crazy, but of not being crazy enough. We are far more connected to the stars than they ever imagined. Want to see a bit of a star? Hold up your hand. You are stardust made flesh. You were literally made in heaven.
What are neutron stars and pulsars?
Bonkers fact: you could fit the entire human race in the volume of a sugar cube. Why? Because matter is mind-bogglingly empty. Naively, you can think of an atom as a mini Solar System, with electrons orbiting like planets around a tiny central ‘nucleus’ like the Sun. But picture of atom as mini Solar System fails to convey how amazingly empty the atom is. It is 99.9999999999999% empty space. If you could squeeze out all the empty space out of all the atoms in all the people in the world, humanity would indeed fit in a sugar cube. Not just a mad theory. There are objects out in space where all the empty space has been squeezed out of their atoms. Neutron stars.
How does the moon influence the Earth?
Contrary to popular belief, the Earth’s tides are not caused by the gravity of the moon but by differences in the gravity of the moon.
Is our solar system special?
Solar system has ordered structure: planets orbit the same direction, more or less in the same plane. It's probably related to system’s origin.
What do radio telescopes intercept?
Radio waves are electromagnetic waves longer than 1 cm wavelength. They constitute the lowest energy part of the electromagnetic spectrum.
What are cosmic rays?
About 90% of cosmic rays are protons (nuclei of hydrogen atoms); 9% are alpha particles (helium nuclei); 1% are heavier nuclei. When colliding with air molecules, cosmic rays produce showers of secondary particles and very faint glow known as Cerenkov radiation. Ground based particle detectors, spread over large area, register air showers. Ultrasensitive light detectors register Cerenkov radiation.35
- Electromagnetism does more than simply power our television and keep the utility bill attached to the refrigerator door. It is one of the fundamental forces that control the cosmos, and naturally occurring electricity and magnetism are everywhere we look. However, before we can discuss the properties of the electromagnetic Universe, we need to consider how we measure and describe these forces. Everyone is familiar with voltage and current. For example, the computer on which I am writing there words draws a voltage of 240 volts3 at a current of 1.5 amps. But let’s think a little bit more about what these terms mean. Current simply measures the rate at which electrons flow along a wire. A current of 1 amp is produced when approximately 6,241,509,600,000,000,000 electrons pass a given point every second. Voltage is a slightly more abstract concept: It measures the strength of the force with which electrons are pushed along the wire.
Extremes of gravity. Gravity is a common force. All matter particles in the cosmos exert gravitational pull on all other particles. Even though the only gravity you can ‘feel’ right now is the Earth’s gravity pulling you down, the people and objects around you are also attracted by your own little gravitational pull, just like every planet, star, and galaxy in the Universe. Even though gravity is common, it is surprisingly weak. You can easily prove it by touching a small magnet to a paperclip and lifting it. Magnetic pull is much stronger than gravity and lets a little magnet conquer the gravity pull of the entire planet Earth. The main difference is that magnetic pull usually does not spread over great distances, while gravity is everywhere. You cannot shield or hide yourself from the gravity, you cannot eliminate it. Everything in the Universe experiences the gravitational pull of everything else.36
- We know that a mole of substance contains a fixed number of the atoms or molecules that make up that substance. This is Avogardo’s number, a little over six hundred billion trillion (6 x 1023). Here, then, is the answer. The weight of the ice cube that you feel in the palm of your hand is the combined result of the masses of six hundred billion trillion molecules of H2O, or about 10,800 billion trillion protons and neutrons.37
- Physicists have known for a century that solid steel is really mostly empty space, because the atomic nuclei that make up 99.95% of the mass are tiny balls that fill up merely 0.0000000000001% of the volume, and that this near-vacuum only feels solid because the electrical forces that hold these nuclei in place are very strong. Moreover, careful measurements of subatomic particles have revealed that they seem to have the ability to be in different places at the same time, a well-known puzzle at the heart of quantum physics.
I first did the math for neurons, the hundred billion or so nerve cells that, like wires, transmit electrical signals in your brain. Neurons are thin and long: if you laid yours out in a row, they’d wrap around the Earth about four times. They transmit electrical signals by transporting sodium and potassium atoms which each have an electron missing (and therefore have a positive electric charge). If you connect a voltmeter to a resting neuron, you’ll measure 0.07 volts between the inside and outside of the cell. There is a chain reaction, called firing, which propagates down the length of the neuron at a speed of 320 kilometres per hour, while about a million sodium atoms enter the cell. The axon quickly recovers and fast neurons can repeat this firing process over a thousand times per second.38
- Cole Porter ‘What is this thing called love?’ 1929
Love. The most wonderful thing in the world – or a box of enmeshed feelings? Is it something complicated – or the simplest thing in the world? Is it possible to explain it scientifically? It dominates our lives – we savor it or we look for it – and when we are deprived of it, the world seems to collapse. The numerous facets of love keep us so busy, that since time immemorial almost every poem, every book, or musical piece and each movie deals with love over and over again. It is new and fascinating. And that is right – because love is the key to the continued human existence. No wonder that love is commanded by strong and surprisingly simple biologic mechanisms. These mechanisms. However. influence not only our love life but also large aspects of our social behavior. Recent hypothesis suggest that the complex consequences of social links are co-responsible for the complexity and even for the exceptional size of the human brain (Dunbar and Shultz 2007). Love is so simple, but it has far-reaching consequences.
And for neurobiologists: certainly love cannot be controlled voluntarily, it seems to be domiciled in primitive, deep brain areas – no surprise that it has been meanwhile proved by experiments on animals and human brain scans. And also it is no surprise that the latest research at the molecular level on brain reveals a close connection between addiction and love.
On the whole, it emerges that our human activity is surprisingly strongly determined by our biology – partly by genetically inherited behavioral patterns, partly by childhood experiences that leave their marks in the brain. Certain behavioral patterns and personality differences can already be explained biologically – but this does not release us from the responsibility for our decisions and actions. Being biological organisms is a part of human nature.
First off: We like most to decide ourselves who suits us best, the intuition is unsurpassed here. No agency, no advisor, no psychological form to fill out can beat this. (…)
You attract me!
The searching for partners similar to ourselves is typical for many species and the biological term for it is ‘homogamy’. But how a man (or a woman) manages to find a partner genetically as close as possible? The answer is really simple: Genetic relatives are similar to us in outward appearance. And how can you recognize it (especially when you as a prehistoric man don’t have a mirror)? An answer to this problem is called ‘sexual imprinting’. As parents are the closest relatives, you look for a partner (man or woman) who resembles as close as possible your parents.
Thus, on an average, people follow fundamental biologic criteria while searching for a partner – in spite of cultural, social and, cognitive influences. However, it should be pointed out that our behavior and also our choice of partner are complex. Many influences are still largely unknown and unexplored and many influences have more in common with us as cognitive individuals than with us as biological, evolutively optimized actors.
One more thought: Whether at the end we are happy with our partner does not necessarily depend on the fulfillment of all biologically relevant, genetically optimal, or evolutively beneficial criteria. These criteria determined by the evolution help only to transmit our genes as far as possible. Our personal happiness could be situated entirely elsewhere.
It must also be clarified what does it mean in the context of neuronal dimensions: a cube of 3x3x3 millimeter, i.e. 27 cubic millimeters contains according to certain estimations and depending on the brain area from 500,000 to 2 million neurons, for which you obtain an average value every two seconds.39
- The role of the vagus nerve.
Your present personality is additionally shaped by a third biological factor, which we want you introduce to: the tenth cranial nerve. It constitutes the principal connecting line between your brain and your body and is also called vagus nerve. It issues from the brain stem and runs through the internal organs. But principally it connects your brain with your heart. You know already that your heart rate rises when you feel offended or threatened – it can be attributed to the Fight-or-Flight Reaction, inherited from our ancestors, however you may not know that it is your vagus nerve which calms your beating heart by engaging (together with oxytocin) another, also primeval, Calm-and-Connect-Reaction.
Against the background of the information that love equals attachment, it becomes clear that your vagus nerve is a biological active post supporting and coordinating your love experience. This nerve escapes your awareness. It stimulates tiny facial muscles responsible for creating eye contact and the synchronization of your facial expression with that of another person. It adjusts even the tiny muscles of your middle ear, so that you can better hear the voice of another person in spite of background noises. In a gentle but still radical way the vagus nerve increases the chances for an attachment between both of you. It increases the chances for a positive resonance.
The new science of love makes it clear that your body functions like a verb. Of course some features of your body – like your DNA or your eyes color – remain relatively constant. But your brain registers unceasingly the permanently changing living conditions and coordinates the flow of biochemical substances, which in turn change your body and brain from inside, on the cellular level. Your body takes initiative. In a remarkable way it sends everything that you feel – your moments of positive resonance or their absence – to all body parts, prepares you either for being healthy or ill and more or less for the loving attachment too.
Characteristic features of love are concern and care for others, a warmth and a genuine interest bringing you to give trust and empathy. An article that appeared some time ago, attempting to identify the most important feature of love – applying for all love variations from romantic through parental to platonic – determines concern and care, or more abstractly, the ‘investment in the well-being of another person and only for the sake of his/her wellness’, as the essential, always present fingerprint of love. Concern and care cause that you pay more attention to other people’s needs, you receive and process incoming information more attentively, to protect your fellow humans from a loss. Besides, at the next meeting with people, who you share micro-moments of positive resonance with, love leads to even more automated positive reactions – both of you assume, that you are favorably disposed towards each other, what allows you to experience further moments of positive resonance. Studies have even revealed that your daily interaction with friends and colleagues would become much more cheerful and pleasant as soon as you learn to take care about the micro-elements of love.
Put simply: Love leads to a fundamental change of heart.
Think how a soccer match or a concert can evoke a positive resonance on a large scale. By means of intense synchronized calls, songs, marches, dances or other simultaneous actions a deep feeling of group solidarity may be created – capable to absorb even a whole stadium.
Over time love triggers wave movements. The more frequently you experience a positive resonance daily, the bigger is its influence on what you are going to become.
We have seen how love sends its wave movements through time and space. According to studies your awareness expands automatically in a moment of positive resonance, so that you learn to appreciate this moment as well as other people more than it is the case normally. Also automatically your body begins to lean towards another person and agree with him/her, starting a subtle, synchronized dance that reinforces your attachment. Over time these powerful moments change you. They contribute to the extension of your social network, reinforce your resilience, increase your wisdom and ameliorate your physical health. Furthermore, love is deeply personal. It develops in your mind and body and with their help, like a wave, culminates in every new micro-moment of attachment – in every smile, laugh or this knowing or agreeing regard that you share with others. So although these micro-elements are deeply personal and volatile, they become more and more objects of scientific investigation. Thus for the first time you can look at and appreciate love not only through personal, subjective glasses but also through scientific, objective ones. In this way you understand better, why your body and mind are created for love and can only benefit from it. Learn how to look for love more often and it will not only lift up you but also your surroundings and our world – far beyond what you and I can imagine today. There are numerous occasions for love. It is up to you to use them and thus lead a fulfilled life.40
