The conexionz between consciousness, mind and matter - between brain and universe - are far more awesome than our work-a-day noodles have a mind to figure. The brain is at once a branching tree of alternate futures, or worldlines to be collapsed into time, and a meta-field for resolution of all points of the brain and body - and environment. Not only is there proven particular quantum entanglement of meaning, (in the operational sense, in the real world, which can stretch across the universe, there is quantum entanglement stretching across all points in the universe, in turn feeding the deeper consciousness of the brain. So, take this tour, won't you, and wake up to the miracle between your ears, and all around you, emerging from chaos? Be sure to check the additional article links offered by each article!...

Here is the same topic. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/07/160713172713.htm - Science News, (next), has several articles about childhood / aging, which could be an LJ post in its own right.

To read about the amazing topic of quantum computers, search online: SCIENTISTS QUANTUM COMPUTERS. The reason I am not post about this here is because it is a big topics requiring its own LJ posts and thought. Very important.
Alas! - A bug in fMRI software could invalidate 15 years of brain research. - "This is huge." Those pesky computers, messing with our brains again!
Here's another important topic, EMERGENCE, which requires lots more LJ posts, (see also tags for some past posts). Analysis of ant colonies could improve network algorithms: Exploring networks efficiently
By learning more about this phenomenon, we might build better communications, internet, traffic, economic - and quantum computer hardware/software - networks which will really open our eyes to a wonderland of wisdom and possibilities, if we should live to see it. Times are perilous.
Hopefully, space aliens, with their big empathetic brains, will save us from ourselves. They should also give us money. And a new car!
