IS CONSCIOUSNESS PRESENTIN A HUMAN NEWBORN?
This post will endeavor to answers the question posed by the title above. The ground rules herein will take a radicle departure from the prevailing scientific paradigm. However, any question relating to consciousness have never been close to being answered nor has it ever been established as to where it is produced.
The prevailing scientific paradigm regarding where human consciousness is created has always taken for granite as somewhere within the human brain. The countless experiments by brilliant neurological specialist throughout the last 50 years has never produced a clue as to where within human brains is consciousness derived. Could it be that this enigma can be rationalized as perhaps they are looking in the wrong place.
One of the greatest problem with present day research is that the are only concentrating on MANIFESTED MATTER. However, it comprises only 4.9% of everything we can see, touch or measure. Nonetheless, there is a QUANTUM REALM that is never taken into account by biological searchers. Physicist are familiar with this mysterious REALM, but, for the most part don’t equate it with biological research. We shall try herein to reconcile this divide.
THE QUANTUM REALM and MANIFESTED MATTER:
The forces of nature. ELECTROMAGNETIC and STRONG, hold all MANIFESTED MATTER together. As seen from other posts on this website, the ELECTROMAGNETIC FORCES HOLD ALL THE ELECTRONS IN ORBITALS AROUND PROTON AND NEUTRONS, AND THE STRONG FORCES HOLD ALL THE QUARKS WITHIN THESE PRTONS AND NEUTRONS. This is the the scenario for all physical, chemical, and biological constructs.
The premise herein is that these forces of nature control MANIFESTED MATTER, but are not part of it. These forces are NOT considered part of the 4.9% of MANIFESTED MATTER.
CONSCIOUSNESS IS NOT MANIFESTED MATTER:
The enigmatic compositional essence of consciousness, whatever it is, can control, imprint, teach, and continually expand the QUANTUM EALM of MANIFESTED MATTER, ESPECIALLY THE BRAIN. BUT, IT IS NOT CREATED WITHIN THE BRAIN. ITS ESSENCE IS PRESENT AT BIRTH AND POSSIBLY WITHIN A DEVELOPING FETUS.
MOTHER AND FATHERS OF NEWBORNS:
When the question is asked of parents of newborns of whether if there is instant-awareness of their days old infant, the answer is always absolutely yes. My personal experience with our newborn children confirms my convictions of this revelation. There does not a need for laboratory experiment to confirm this worldwide phenomenon.
OUTSIDE IN, NOT INSIDE OUT:
THE MAIN CONCEPTS UPON WHICH THE PROPOSALS IN THIS PAPER ARE THAT A PRIMARY CONSCIOUSNESS IS PRESENT AT BIRTH. AND, FURTHER, THIS GROWING INSTANTANEOUS-AWARENESS (I-A) HAS A CONTINUING ROLE IN MAKING PROFOUND ENHANCING STRUCTURAL CHANGES WITHIN THE INFANT’S HUMAN BRAIN. A PROFOUND EXAMPLE OF THIS WAS SEEN IN THE FOLLOWING STUDY. IT SHOW THAT I-A INCREASES BRAIN ENHANCEMENT FROM THE OUT SIDE IN.
A recent paper from the laboratories of the Gladstone Institute whose Director and Senior Investigator, Dr. Lennart Mucke, and his group discovered a profound mechanism that may have evolutionary significance. Though the original premise of this investigation by the nine participant scientists was related to Alzheimer’s disease and its amyloid-B protein, a diversity of other experiments in this study had a surprising new discovery.
As part of study, the scientists analyzed young adult mice after they were placed into new, larger cages with different toys and odors. They were allowed to explore this new environment for only two hours.Thereafter, they measured their brain levels of a protein known as gamma-H2AX. This brain protein accumulates when breaks occur in double- stranded molecules of DNA. Breaks in one strand occur quite frequently, but breaking both is usually indicative of a diseased state. Unexpectedly, the researcher found that the breaks in the neurons of the healthy “Explorer Mice” had up to six more breaks than the mice that stayed in their home cages. These DNA breaks were completely healed within 24 hours due to the DNA repair mechanism within the cells. (1)
THIS PAPER CANNOT ASCERTAIN WHETHER CONSCIOUSNESS IS PRESENT AT CONCEPTION NOR IF IT DEVELOPS WITHIN THE GROWING FETUS. NONETHELESS, THERE HAS BEEN EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE PLAYING MUSIC, SINGING, AND READING TO THE UNBORN FETUS MAY HAVE A POSITIVE EFFECT ACCORDING TO A 2008 JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY REPORT.
HELLEN KELLER, a Radcliffe College graduate, became an author, political activist and lecturer, contracted a disease at 19 moths, that left her both deaf and blind. With the help of Anne Sullivan, a visually impaired 20 year old, became the teacher to the 7 year old Hellen Keller. Their close 49 year relationship magnificently progressed to Hellen‘ miraculous achievements. The question therefore arises of how could Anne Sullivan’s teachings accomplish all of those intellectual breakthroughs if Hellen Keller’s consciousness was only coming from within her brain. It was not coming from her brain; it was the Instantaneous- Awareness that was available outside of her brain. (2)
The mind is a distributed phenomenon, Conscious experiences the highest level of brain processes. The brain is only an organ; it does not produce, but only mediates and modulates the cycles of environmental interactions. The brain develops and continuously changes with the experiences we accumulate during our lives. (3)
