Brain-to-Brain Communication Thousands of Miles Away Proven a Reality by Harvard Researchers

A group of international neuroscientists and robotics engineers have discovered for the first time that human brains can indeed ‘talk’ directly to one another, even from thousands of miles away.

A brain-to-brain communication study conducted in coordination with Harvard Medical School has proven that extrasensory mind-to mind interaction can happen over great distances by leveraging different pathways in the mind.

The study, coauthored by Alvaro Pascual-Leone, Director of the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and a Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, found that information can be successfully transmitted between two intact human brains from distances over 5000 miles apart.

The researchers were curious if one could communicate directly with another person, and tested their hypothesis by reading the brain activity from one person injecting brain activity into the second individual. You could call it a neuro-physical version of ‘instant messaging.’

“In the neuroscientific equivalent of instant messaging, Pascual-Leone, together with Giulio Ruffini and Carles Grau leading a team of researchers from Starlab Barcelona, Spain, and Michel Berg, leading a team from Axilum Robotics, Strasbourg, France, successfully transmitted the words “hola” and “ciao” in a computer-mediated brain-to-brain transmission from a location in India to a location in France using internet-linked electroencephalogram (EEG) and robot-assisted and image-guided transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) technologies.”

Using electrodes attached to one person’s scalp to record their brain currents (electrical signaling) during a thought-action, the computer could interpret that signal and translate it to a control output like a robot or a motorized wheelchair.

The study required a second human brain on the receiving end. Participants who successfully transmitted the two words were between the ages of 28 and 50, and four participated in the study. One subject was responsible for the brain-computer interface (BCI) branch and was the sender of the words chosen for the study, and the other three were assigned the task of receiving the message with the computer-brain interface observing their brain-wave patterns.

Although EEG patterns had to be translated from binary code, the greetings ‘hola’ and ‘ciao’ were translated successfully and emailed as confirmation back to the sender in India from France. When the messages were sent, the subjects experienced brain stimulation as phosphenes, which are flashes of light, which occur in peripheral vision as a sort of morse code – as a sequence.

This corroborates findings that people know when a loved one has died even when they are thousands of miles away, and other strange phenomenon that seem to exist out of the time/space barriers we have accepted as limitations for person-to-person communication.

Perhaps we can ditch our cell phones soon, once we learn how to ‘talk’ straight to our intended recipients using just our minds.

Synthetische Telepathie: Forschern gelingt Gedankenfernübertragung
Andreas von Rétyi

Eine internationale Expertengruppe überträgt in einem grundlegenden Experiment Wörter nichtverbal offiziell erstmalig von Hirn zu Hirn – zwischen zwei rund 8.000 Kilometer entfernten Orten. Wohin führt die Forschung?

Afbeelding

»Wir wollten herausfinden, ob eine direkte Kommunikation zwischen zwei Menschen möglich ist, indem man die Hirnaktivität einer Person ausliest und Hirnaktivität in die zweite Person injiziert, und zwar über weite physische Distanzen hinweg, indem man die bestehenden Kommunikationspfade wirksam nutzt.«
So erklärt Mediziner und Studien-Co-Autor Alvaro Pascual-Leone, Professor für Neurologie an der Harvard Medical School und Chef des Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation. An diesem Forschungszentrum befassen sich die Neuro-Wissenschaftler mit den Möglichkeiten, das Gehirn ohne operative Eingriffe zu stimulieren und die Aktivität zu decodieren.

Das Experiment zur Fernübertragung von Hirn zu Hirn bildet die Grundlage einer Art synthetischer »Telepathie«: Technisch unterstützt soll spezifische Hirnaktivität registriert und mit gedanklichen Inhalten verknüpft werden. Die Information wird codiert und wieder decodiert, ähnlich dem Prinzip eines Modems, um am Ziel wieder in Worte umgesetzt zu werden.

Was bei reiner Telepathie ohne jede Technik abläuft, ganz unmittelbar und völlig unabhängig von räumlicher Distanz, wurde hier mit modernen Mitteln einschließlich Computer und Internet umgesetzt.

So viel vorweg: Die Wissenschaftler sind mit dem Ergebnis zufrieden.

Neben Forschern der Harvard Medical School waren an der Studie auch Fachleute des Starlab Barcelona, Spanien, sowie von Axilum Robotics in Straßburg, Frankreich, beteiligt. »Unsere Frage war: Können wir ein Experiment entwickeln, das den Sprach- oder Texteingabepart des Internets umgeht und direkte Hirn-zu-Hirn-Kommunikation zwischen weit voneinander entfernten Individuen in Indien und Frankreich bewerkstelligt?«, so Pascual-Leone.

Ihre Antwort fanden die Forscher über EEGs mit Internetanbindung sowie roboter- und bildgestützte transkranielle Magnetstimulation (TMS). Wie bereits der Name sagt, werden dabei bestimmte Hirnareale nicht-invasiv durch den Schädel hindurch mittels starker Magnetfelder stimuliert – oder blockiert. Hirnströme werden aufgezeichnet und den spezifischen Gedanken zugeordnet, wobei die Informationen bei den Hirn-Computer-Schnittstellen von Computern empfangen und umgesetzt werden, um beispielsweise Signale an einen Roboter oder eine Drohne zu senden.

Neben diesen »brain-computer Interfaces« (BCI) gibt es auch die umgekehrte Möglichkeit der »computer-brain Interfaces« (CBI), die nun zur computervermittelten Hirn-zu-Hirn-Kommunikation (computer-mediated brain-to-brain communication, kurz B2B) kombiniert werden – »Hyperinteraktion«.

Bei letzterer Variante sollten nun einzelne Wörter übertragen werden, ohne die üblichen Kommunikationsmittel zu verwenden. Dazu nutzten die Forscher den üblichen Binärcode: Jedes Wort wurde entsprechend »übersetzt«, wobei der als Sender genutzte Testkandidat jeweils den Informationseinheiten bestimmte Bewegungen zuordnen sollte: Handbewegung für jede »Eins«, Fußbewegung für jede »Null«. Die entsprechenden EEG-Muster wurden registriert. Ergebnis: ein neuraler Code für die binären Kolonnen.

Mit diesen Informationen konnten die Neurologen jetzt »auf Sendung« gehen und die Empfängergehirne stimulieren. Insgesamt waren an dem Experiment vier Testpersonen im Alter zwischen 28 und 50 Jahren beteiligt, die hierfür ihre schriftliche Einwilligung abgaben. »Subjekt eins« war der Emitter, während die »Subjekte« zwei, drei und vier als Empfänger dienten.

Die Informationen wurden per Internet und über TMS-Headsets an die drei Empfänger übertragen, wobei der visuelle Cortex (»Sehrinde«) des Gehirns stimuliert wurde. Augen und Ohren der Empfänger wurden dabei verdeckt. Die binäre Kette nahmen die Kandidaten durch peripheres Sehen als helle Lichter wahr. Dabei bestimmte die jeweilige Position, ob das Licht eine »Eins« oder eine »Null« signalisierte. Die Übertragung gelang, die entsprechenden Pulse konnten auf diesem Wege erfolgreich als die übertragenen Worte entschlüsselt werden. So gelangte die Botschaft unausgesprochen von Hirn zu Hirn über eine Distanz von mehr als 8.000 Kilometern.

Natürlich war die Übertragungsrate mit zwei Bit pro Minute nicht gerade atemberaubend. Telefonieren wäre wesentlich einfacher, schneller und effektiver gewesen. Doch natürlich ging es den Wissenschaftlern um das grundsätzlich Machbare. Wie sie sagen, wollten sie einen ersten wichtigen Schritt in die Richtung gehen, übliche Kommunikationsmittel zu ergänzen oder zu umgehen.

Trotz der gegenwärtig gesetzten Grenzen der Realisierbarkeit seien bereits für die nicht zu ferne Zukunft sinnvolle Anwendungen denkbar, beispielsweise auch bei Schlaganfall-Patienten, die das Sprechvermögen verloren hätten. Ob das tatsächlich umsetzbar ist, bleibt offen. Die Wissenschaftler sehen jedenfalls spürbare soziale Konsequenzen für die nächste Zeit, die auch neue ethische und juristische Erwägungen erfordern dürften.



Die Übertragung und Kontrolle von Gedanken ist nicht erst seit gestern ein Thema. Einstmals geheime Programme sowie auch aktuellere Bemühungen von DARPA & Co lassen ahnen, welche weniger erfreulichen Ziele mit solchen Technologien verfolgt werden, die am Ende vor allem dazu führen dürften, die kläglichen Reste unserer Privatsphäre noch im Intimsten und Individuellsten zu zerstören und unseren freien WillenWillen zu brechen.

Ancient High Technological Device In The Cairo Egyptian Museum
Brien Foerster
Gepubliceerd op 20 apr. 2015

http://www.hiddenincatours.com
One of the most intriguing and mislabeled artifacts in the Egyptian National Museum in Cairo is a plate like work made out of stone which many academics think was for flowers or fruit. However, when engineers look at it they tend to believe that is part of an ancient high technology machine, possibly older than the dynastic Egyptians themselves.
Come and see it with us in April 2016 with www.khemitology.com

Contrary to common belief, the massive megalithic work known as Sachsayhuaman above Cusco Peru was not the achievement of the Inca, but a much older and more high tech race. The Inca of course did construct aspects at Sachsayhuaman. Watch this video and see the evidence for yourself.

Massive Underground City Found in Cappadocia Region of Turkey
Subterranean retreat may have sheltered thousands of people in times of trouble.

Afbeelding

When the invaders came, Cappadocians knew where to hide: underground, in one of the 250 subterranean safe havens they had carved from pliable volcanic ash rock called tuff.

Now a housing construction project may have unearthed the biggest hiding place ever found in Cappadocia, a region of central Turkey famous for the otherworldly chimney houses, cave churches, and underground cities its residents carved for millennia.

knip


How Big Is It?
Geophysicists from Nevşehir University conducted a systematic survey of a 1.5-mile (4-kilometer) area using geophysical resistivity and seismic tomography. From the 33 independent measurements they took, they estimate the site is nearly five million square feet (460,000 square meters).

These studies suggest the underground corridors may plunge as deep as 371 feet (113 meters). If that turns out to be accurate, the city could be larger than Derinkuyu by a third.

The Truth About Father Crespi and His Missing Artifacts Finally Revealed


Afbeelding


The story of Father Crespi is a mysterious and controversial account of a priest in Ecuador involving claims of unknown civilizations, strange golden artifacts, a subterranean cave system containing a metallic library, depictions of strange figures connecting America to Sumeria, symbols depicting an unknown language, evidence of extra-terrestrial contact, and a Vatican conspiracy involving thousands of missing artifacts. But how much of the story is true? Ancient Origins set out to find the answers and was given exclusive access by the Central Bank of Ecuador to the private artifact collection of Father Crespi, tucked away in hidden vaults and storerooms, including the controversial carved metal plates, which had not been seen or photographed for decades.

Google the name ‘Father Crespi’ today and you will find dozens of websites telling the bizarre story of a humble priest and his connection with a mysterious collection of artifacts. Admittedly, Ancient Origins is included among those that have highlighted the strange story of Crespi and his missing artifacts. However, when myself and Dr Ioannis Syrigos of Ancient Origins moved to Cuenca, Ecuador, and were visited by researchers Hugh Newman, founder of Megalithomania.co.uk, and Jim Vieira, who has starred on several History Channel programs, there was an opportunity to explore the account in more depth and find out what is really behind the story of Father Crespi.


Afbeelding


Some of the artifacts are Babylonian in style, others appear to have been carved in gold with strange motifs and symbols that do not resemble objects from any South American culture. Some of the gold plates appear to show a type of ancient writing, although as far as we are aware, none of them were identified and translated.


Afbeelding








Truth Revealed and Unanswered Questions

Our investigation enabled us to verify the following facts:

- Father Crespi’s collection is not missing but was purchased by the Central Bank of Ecuador and is currently stored in their museum vaults.
- The majority of Crespi’s collection consists of authentic and valuable artifacts gathered from around Ecuador.
- The so-called Metallic Library mentioned by Däniken is nothing more than modern-day carvings on cheap metal.

But… there still remains a number of unanswered questions – where are the artifacts that were photographed and filmed in the 1970s consisting of gold carvings, hieroglyphs, and Sumerian figures? Why aren’t they anywhere to be seen in the Central Bank of Ecuador’s storage rooms? Were they authentic? And if so, what is their significance? No one at the Universidad Politécnica Salesiana, Church of Maria Auxiliadora or the Central Bank Museum were able to answer these questions.




MUCH MORE!

A newly discovered 5,000-year-old underground city is being hailed as one of the largest in the world – and one of the top archeological finds of all time. The city is located in the historical Cappadocia region of Turkey which lies between Aksaray in the west, Kayseri in the east and Nigde in the south. It is an area rich in history from the Hittite times before 1,700 B.C. and was once a part of the Roman Empire.

12,000 Year Old Massive Underground Tunnels Are Real And Stretch From Scotland To Turkey
http://simplecapacity.com/2016/05/12000 ... d-tunnels/


Across the Europe there are thousands of underground tunnels from the north in Scotland leading all the way down to the Mediterranean.

This 12,000-year-old massive underground network is very impressive.

Some experts believe the network was a way of protecting man from predators while others suggest the idea that the linked tunnels were used like motorways are today, for people to travel safely regardless of wars or violence or even weather above ground. They could be described as a kind of ancient underground superhighway.

Others think the tunnels can be seen as a gateway to the underworld.

German archaeologist Dr Heinrich Kusch said evidence of the tunnels has been found under hundreds of Neolithic settlements all over the continent. In his book – Secrets Of The Underground Door To An Ancient Worldhttps://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01AKC9V5C/re ... DK4H6PBDL3 (German title: Tore zur Unterwelt) – he says that the fact so many have survived after 12,000 years shows that the original tunnel network must have been enormous.

“In Bavaria in Germany alone we have found 700 meters of these underground tunnel networks. In Styria in Austria we have found 350 meters,” he said.

“Across Europe there were thousands of them – from the north in Scotland down to the Mediterranean.

Most are not much larger than big wormholes – just 70cm wide – just wide enough for a person to wriggle along but nothing else.

They are interspersed with nooks, at some places it’s larger and there is seating, or storage chambers and rooms. They do not all link up but taken together it is a massive underground network.”

In his book, he book notes that chapels were often built by the entrances perhaps because the Church were afraid of the heathen legacy the tunnels might have represented, and wanted to negate their influence.

Similar underground tunnels exist on other continents. Throughout all the Americas there are a number of legends of secret of subterranean passages stretching for miles.

Why were these ancient tunnels constructed? Was it perhaps our ancestors had to seek protection underground?

Many of these ancient legends tell of a great catastrophe that occurred in ancient times. Several myths and legends also relate how the first human beings emerged from underground caves, tunnels and even cities!

7 Bizarre Ancient Cultures That History Forgot
By Stephanie Pappas,

July 18, 2016 06:41am ET
http://www.livescience.com/55430-bizarr ... tures.html

Long-Lost Cultures
The ancient Egyptians had their pyramids, the Greeks, their sculptures and temples. And everybody knows about the Maya and their famous calendar.
But other ancient peoples get short shrift in world history. Here are a handful of long-lost cultures that don't get the name recognition they deserve.

The Silla
The Silla Kingdom was one of the longest-standing royal dynasties ever. It ruled most of the Korean Peninsula between 57 B.C. and A.D. 935, but left few burials behind for archaeologists to study.
One recent Silla discovery gave researchers a little insight, however. The intact bones of a woman who lived to be in her late 30s was found in 2013 near the historic capital of the Silla (Gyeongju). An analysis of the woman's bones revealed that she was likely a vegetarian who ate a diet heavy in rice, potatoes or wheat. She also had an elongated skull.
Silla was founded by the monarch Bak Hyeokgeose. Legend held that he was hatched from a mysterious egg in the forest and married a queen born from the ribs of a dragon. Over time, the Silla culture developed into a centralized, hierarchical society with a wealthy aristocratic class. Though human remains from the Silla people are rare, archaeologists have unearthed a variety of luxurious goods made by this culture, from a gold-and-garnet dagger to a cast-iron Buddha to jade jewelry, among other examples held at the Gyeongju National Museum in South Korea. [See Images of the Long-Headed Woman's Facial Reconstruction]

The Indus
The Indus is the largest-known ancient urban culture, with the people's land stretching from the Indus River in modern-day Pakistan to the Arabian Sea and the Ganges in India. The Indus civilization persisted for thousands of years, emerging around 3300 B.C. and declining by about 1600 B.C.
The Indus, also known as the Harappans, developed sewage and drainage systems for their cities, built impressive walls and granaries, and produced artifacts like pottery and glazed beads. They even had dental care: Scientists found 11 drilled molars from adults who lived between 7,500 to 9,000 years ago in the Indus Valley, according to a study published in 2006 in the journal Nature. A 2012 study suggested that climatic change weakened monsoonal rains and dried up much of the Harappan territory, forcing the civilization to gradually disband and migrate to wetter climes.

The Sanxingdui
The Sanxingdui were a Bronze Age culture that thrived in what is now China's Sichuan Province. A farmer first discovered artifacts from the Sanxingdui in 1929; excavations in the area in 1986 revealed complex jade carvings and bronze sculptures 8 feet (2.4 meters) tall.
But who were the Sanxingdui? Despite the evidence of the culture's artistic abilities, no one really knows. They were prolific makers of painted bronze-and-gold-foil masks that some archaeologists believe may have represented gods or ancestors, according to the Sanxingdui Museum in China. The Sanxingdui site shows evidence of abandonment about 2,800 or 3,000 years ago, and another ancient city, Jinsha, discovered nearby, shows evidence that maybe the Sanxingdui moved there. In 2014, researchers at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union argued that at around this time, a major earthquake and landslide redirected the Minjiang River, which would have cut Sanxingdui off from water and forced a relocation.

The Nok
The mysterious and little-known Nok culture lasted from around 1000 B.C. to A.D. 300 in what is today northern Nigeria. Evidence of the Nok was discovered by chance during a tin-mining operation in 1943, according to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Miners uncovered a terra-cotta head, hinting at a rich sculptural tradition. Since then, other elaborate terra-cotta sculptures have emerged, including depictions of people wearing elaborate jewelry and carrying batons and flails — symbols of authority also seen in ancient Egyptian art, according to the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Other sculptures show people with diseases such as elephantiasis, the Met said.
Contributing to the mystery surrounding the Nok, the artifacts have often been removed from their context without archaeological analysis. In 2012, the United States returned a cache of Nok figurines to Nigeria after they were stolen from Nigeria's national museum and smuggled into the U.S.

The Etruscans
The Etruscans had a thriving society in northern Italy from about 700 B.C. to about 500 B.C., when they began to be absorbed by the Roman Republic. They developed a unique written language and left behind luxurious family tombs, including one belonging to a prince that was first excavated in 2013.
Etruscan society was a theocracy, and their artifacts suggest that religious ritual was a part of daily life. The oldest depiction of childbirth in Western art — a goddess squatting to give birth — was found at the Etruscan sanctuary of Poggio Colla. At the same site, archaeologists found a 4-foot by 2-foot (1.2 by 0.6 meters) sandstone slab containing rare engravings in the Etruscanlanguage. Few examples of written Etruscan survive. Another Etruscan site, Poggio Civitate, was a square complex surrounding a courtyard. It was the largest building in the Mediterranean at its time, said archaeologists who have excavated more than 25,000 artifacts from the site.

The Land of Punt
Some cultures are known mostly through the records of other cultures. That's the case with the mysterious land of Punt, a kingdom somewhere in Africa that traded with the ancient Egyptians. The two kingdoms were exchanging goods from at least the 26th century B.C., during the reign of the pharaoh Khufu (the builder of the Great Pyramid of Giza).
Strangely, no one really knows where Punt was located. The Egyptians left plenty of descriptions of the goods they got from Punt (gold, ebony, myrrh) and the seafaring expeditions they sent to the lost kingdom. However, the Egyptians are frustratingly mum on where all these voyages were headed. Scholars have suggested that Punt may have been in Arabia, or on the Horn of Africa, or maybe down the Nile River at the border of modern-day South Sudan and Ethiopia.

The Bell-Beaker Culture
You know a culture is obscure when archaeologists name it based on its artifacts alone. The Bell-Beaker culture made pottery vessels shaped like upside-down bells. The makers of these distinctive drinking cups lived across Europe between about 2800 B.C. and 1800 B.C. They also left behind copper artifacts and graves, including a cemetery of 154 graves located in the modern-day Czech Republic.
The Bell-Beakers were also responsible for some of the construction at Stonehenge, researchers have found: These people likely arranged the site's small bluestones, which originated in Wales.

Wonderbaarlijke fossielen gevonden: komt mens oorspronkelijk uit Europa?

Wetenschappers hebben op Kreta een wonderlijke ontdekking gedaan. Ze vonden er menselijke voetafdrukken die stammen uit een tijd waarin onze voorouders nog veel meer aapachtige voeten hadden. Het zou kunnen betekenen dat mensen al veel langer rechtop lopen dan gedacht.

De afdrukken dateren van 5,7 miljoen jaar geleden toen de mens nog in Afrika leefde, zo werd altijd verondersteld. Maar de afdrukken die in Trachilos in het westen van het Griekse eiland Kreta zijn gevonden, hebben duidelijk kenmerken van rechtopstaande mensen. Wel gaat het om een afwijkende voet met een lange zool, vijf korte tenen, geen klauwen, een grote teen en een opvallende bal onder de voet.

Op basis van fossielen van de Australopithecus in Zuid- en Oost-Afrika werd altijd gedacht dat de mens daar is ontstaan. In Tanzania en Ethiopië zijn respectievelijk 3,7 en 4,4 miljoen jaar oude voetafdrukken gevonden. Die lijken echter nog veel meer op die van een aap dan op die van de moderne mens. De afdrukken van Trachilos zijn dus én veel ouder én lijken menselijker.

De onderzoekers, die de afdrukken tien jaar lang hebben bestudeerd, komen tot de controversiële conclusie dat er mogelijk nog een onbekende mensachtige was, die eerder al rechtop liep en niet uit Afrika komt. Het is niet ondenkbaar. 5,7 miljoen jaar geleden zat Kreta nog vast aan Griekenland en strekte de savanne zich uit van Noord-Afrika tot Zuid-Oost Europa.

Paleontoloog Gerard Gierlinski ontdekte de voetafdrukken al in 2002. Of de wetenschap zijn studie als overtuigend bewijs ziet, moet worden afgewacht. Toch zijn hij en zijn team niet de eerste die iets dergelijks opperen. Onlangs nog werden 7,2 miljoen jaar oude fossielen, gevonden in Griekenland en Bulgarije, geherklasseerd tot de stamboom van onze voorouders. Ook die vinding suggereerde dat de menselijke oorsprong niet in Afrika, maar in Europa ligt.
