Hawking [Eye] Radiation

In 1974, Stephen Hawking made an argument that black holes emit radiation. How farfetched is the possibility that our eyes emit radiation of their own?  Sit tight and let me try to prove it to you. 

How can I tell someone is looking at me?

There was a study in 1898 that showed that people could somewhat sense someone staring at them. There have been numerous studies since then to try to validate or disprove these original tests. Some confirm the results. Some don’t.

I’d say that whether or not you can feel that someone is looking at you depends on who is looking at you, and what their state of mind is when they are looking. 

What the science is clear on is gaze detection. We can tell when someone in our peripheral vision is looking at us, and typically where it is coming from.

Some autistic people feel electric shocks when they make eye contact with people. Some non-Autistic people do tooThis is not an illusion or the placebo effect. Autistic people have very sensitive brains under high pressure, so it’s not surprising that they feel this better than anyone else.

What conditions constrict the pupils? Opiates and high blood pressure, among other things. So in what ways are these things related. Opiates actually lower blood pressure and yet constrict the pupils. So if we view the pupil as a source of some radiation, the body would be constricting the pupils to increase blood and brain pressure, in an attempt to keep you alive.

Pupil size decreases with age. Blood pressure goes up. If the eyes do in fact release some sort of radiation, the pupil may be the only release point. So as the pupil size diminishes, the amount of radiation expelled decreases. Brain pressure and blood pressure increase. As does brain entropy. This makes strokes more likely.

What medications  and conditions dilate the pupils?

  • Antihistamines
  • Decongestants
  • Tricyclic antidepressants
  • Motion sickness medicines
  • Anti-nausea medicines
  • Anti-seizure drugs
  • Medications for Parkinson’s disease
  • Botox and other medications containing botulinum toxin
  • Atropine (used for myopia control and other medical purposes)

What could this mean? It could mean that brain pressure may be tied to allergies, motion sickness, nausea, seizures, Parkinson’s, and myopia.

Tesla on Helmholtz: He could see in complete darkness by only using the light of his own eyes.  This is the father of modern optometry. He invented the ophthalmoscope. He’s not just some random quack. So here are two of the biggest thinkers of the 20th century saying this happened.

Animal pupil shapes. If the purpose of the pupil is only to let light in? Why do animals have pupils of so many varying shapes? The surface area of the pupil would make sense for animals who live in different conditions, but different shapes? Is it possible that these shapes serve some other purpose, like that of an electromagnetic emission? 265_e56954b4f6347e897f954495eab16a88

In summary, here are your reasons that the eye’s emit some sort of radiation:

  1. Psychic staring effect
  2. Pupil Size decreases with Age
  3. Autistic eye contact
  4. Pinpoint pupils and high blood pressure
  5. Eyedrops effect blood pressure
  6. Helmholtz
  7. Animal Pupil shapes

So if the mind has a certain state that sends electromagnetic waves through the eyes, what if any applications does this conclusion have in modern medicine, namely high blood pressure and drug overdoses?

Colorblindness Is Curable

There’s a case where a colorblind man regained his color vision at age 70. Sure, he had a traumatic head injury, but how is that possible? It’s generally accepted that there is no cure for color blindness. But if this man was cured, is it possible for everyone to be? The answer is yes.

What do we know?

  • Guys get it way more often.
  • Some people get it with age
  • White boys get it the most.
  • It may worsen over time.
  • It’s a spectrum disorder. [physically and literally]

Risk Factors:

  • Having an eye disorder, such as glaucoma or macular degeneration
  • Taking a medication called plaquenil, for arthritis
  • Chronic alcoholism
  • Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease
  • Certain cancers, such as leukemia

So using our logic from the human brain model and showing that the brain is an entropy engine, we’ve theorized about main vision and brain conditions being reversible. If the brain heals itself, which we know it does on a regular basis. If these things are true, what is colorblindness? And if myopia is reversible, why shouldn’t colorblindness be as well? 

Bates saw a correlation in amblyopia and color blindness. Meaning, basically those people that couldn’t see, couldn’t see colors either. Not a revolutionary thought. But as he worked with them in his techniques, not only did their vision get better, but their color blindness saw improvements as well.

So if your brain can’t interpret light well, it may just not be able to interpret light well [the quality of the image or colors may suffer]. As always, though, this comes with a ray of hope. Why? If we can tie general vision to color vision, and low vision to low color vision. And we can improve low vision and see improvements in low color vision. We know that eyesight is correctable. That means that color vision is correctable.

Curing the Common Cold

You need to read my posts about sleep and brain entropy before diving into this. 

So here’s the theory: that colds could be a symptom of low brain entropy. Think about it, how do you increase the entropy of a system? If you restrict air flow, pressure would increase. So what if the sniffles or your inflamed throat is only your body trying to raise it’s pressure naturally.

If the brain has an equilibrium state, and you’re there, but you just eat and do basically the same thing every day. The fall temperature change will affect two things: the temperature will go down so you will burn more calories doing the same tasks. And because the temperature goes down, your brain entropy goes down. Let’s say you were at equilibrium before the temperature change. After the temperature change, your brain entropy will be low, if nothing else changes. So as always, the body adjusts. In this case, it restricts air flow. By closing the nasal passages and throat, the brain has less airway, and the entropy in nearer is equilibrium state.

Everyone knows that a warm shower and soup work wonders when you have a cold. This would explain why. 

What is the common cold?

Well, we basically call it an upper respiratory tract infection, caused by any number of viruses. It’s best defined by it’s symptoms:

  • stuffy nose or nasal drainage,
  • sore or scratchy throat,
  • sneezing,
  • hoarseness,
  • cough,
  • low-grade fever,
  • headache,
  • earache,
  • body aches,
  • loss of appetite
  • fatigue.

If all this is true, what is the theoretical cause of the cold?

1. Your head grows, but your brain entropy stays the same. The gap created by the change of volume causes a need for heat. The need for heat is the basis of the cold. [I can’t think of a practical application of this reason.]

2. Your brain entropy goes down. The best way I can think of it is that sleep cools your brain. If sleep cools your brain, and you hibernate in the winter, your brain will be much colder. As before, the lack of heat would be the basis for your cold.

So how can low brain entropy explain these symptoms? Pretty simple: if the brain strives for equilibrium, when it gets too cold [low entropy] there are only a couple of ways to combat it.

  1. Restrict air flow. If you restrict air flow, you raise the temperature. So your nose is clogged, throat is sore, and you’re coughing and sneezing is a result of that.
  2. Fever. If you don’t take any action, your body will heat the brain from the inside.
  3. Add humidity. Humidifiers help mitigate cold symptoms. Humidity raises the entropy of the system. So if you breathe in the more humid air, it would ease some of the work your brain/body has to do to equalize the pressure.
  4. Sleep less. If sleep cools the brain. Too much sleep [without a fever], will keep your brain entropy too low. The sun sets earlier in the winter, so people may start going to sleep earlier. If you go to sleep earlier and wake at the same time, and do the same things during the day, your brain has more time to cool. And this pattern of hibernation produces lower and lower entropy over time.

Quick sidebar: Did you know that older people sleep less than younger people? Did you know that your body temperature decreases as you get older? Think about it: if sleep cools the brain, and when the body is hot the brain is hot. People with cooler brains would need less sleep. 

So why does colder weather make us sick?

The cooler weather does some of the work normally done by sleep to cool the brain. So essentially, we need less sleep in cooler weather. Sleeping longer than necessary for a season, and your brain may get too cold, and take it’s own action to heat back up.

Busting Pain Tolerance

Years ago, Mythbusters explored pain tolerance. First off, women proved to have a higher pain tolerance than men. Secondly, women who had given birth without painkillers had the highest pain threshold of all. 

I think this is a very interesting result, but it doesn’t tell the whole story. Why? Because the nature of the test assumes that everyone perceives time at the same rate. If that is true, you have a valid test. But we that is not true. The way we perceive time is based on a wide array of stresses, and changes throughout the day. So their experiment measured two things:

  1. The individual’s pain threshold
  2. The individual’s time perception

The slower time passes for any given individual, the longer it will feel like they have been subjected to the pain. And the opposite is also true: the faster time passes for any individual, the shorter will feel like they have been subjected to any pain. So two people with the exact same pain tolerances in different mental states would have very different results in this experiment.

 

 

Hacking Hypersleep

It may be possible. Here’s why:

Basically, if we view the brain as a single point of electrical output, and look at the frequency as the subject’s degree of stress and the inverse of that stress as the subject’s perception of time [read my post on sleep for more detail]. Essentially, the slower you can get the resting brainwaves, the less perceived time will pass. The slower “delta” waves the better.

How do we accomplish this? Deprive the senses. People deprived of light, sound, and human interaction, have gone down for a “quick nap” and slept for thirty hours. The lower the external stress, the further they can travel in the same amount of perceived time.

Did Pirates Cure Seasickness?

[Alternate titles: Were Pirates Epileptic?  + Seasickness is flicker vertigo is photo epilepsy.]

I think they did.

So why did pirates wear eyepatches? Mythbusters says that it was for dealing with the low light of conditions below deck. I think it’s because seasickness is a mild type of photo epilepsy, and covering one eye helps mitigate seizures. Let me try to prove it to you.

Let’s start with some facts about photosensitive epilepsy: Photosensitive epilepsy is a form of epilepsy in which seizures are triggered by visual stimuli that form patterns in time or space, such as flashing lights; bold, regular patterns; or regular moving patterns.

  • For about 3% of people with epilepsy, exposure to flashing lights at certain intensities or to certain visual patterns can trigger seizures.
  • More common in children and adolescents.
  • Becomes less frequent with age.

So essentially, flickers cause seizures. But there is thing called flicker vertigo.

Flicker vertigo is an imbalance in brain-cell activity caused by exposure to low-frequency flickering (or flashing) of a relatively bright light.” It is a disorientation-, vertigo-, and nausea-inducing effect of a strobe light flashing at 1 Hz to 20 Hz, approximately the frequency of human brainwaves. The effects are similar to seizures caused by epilepsy (in particular photosensitive epilepsy), but are not restricted to people with histories of epilepsy.

So…what if these are the same condition? Obviously nausea is not the same as a seizure, but seizures can cause nausea. Let’s keep looking. 

What is motion sickness? This is when people get sick in cars, planes, boats, space, and even in front of screens. The jury is still out on what causes it. Here are some facts people agree on.

  • It’s most common in children and pregnant women. 
  • It’s more common in people who get migraines. 
  • Asians are very susceptible. 
  • Medications can cause it.

Treatments:

  • One ear plug technique. Why in the world would this work?
  • Caffeine has shown to be effective against it. 
  • Closing your eyes has been shown to effective in mitigating symptoms. 

 

So seasickness is a type of motion sickness. How is this similar to photo epilepsy and flicker vertigo? If you look at the sky and ocean as contrasting patterns, the waves beneath you would create a “flicker” of sorts as your head bobs with the motion of the boat.

The frequency of ocean waves is 4-15 waves per minute And the boat will rock up and down on each wave. And every time your bobs, you’d see sky and ocean. And the faster the boat goes, and the more frequent the waves, the more people will find themselves hanging over the side. 

It would explain why staring at the horizon would help. It would help eliminate some or all of the person’s “flicker”.

And why cloudy days make things worse. The contrast with the sky and the water is greater, and more wind means more waves.

What about body language? This article tied seasickness to body sway. The scientist had people broaden their stances, and reduced their seasickness. It makes sense. The less you sway, the slower the sky/ocean cycles in your vision. But with this theory, he can only predict seasickness sixty percent of the time. Why? Because he ignores the other factor that seems to induce the same nausea: sounds.

So why would an ear plug help? Because your eyes are not the only things sensitive to these vibrations. Ocean waves have infrasonic sound frequencies from 0.4 to 16 hz.

Deaf people do not get motion sickness. This is important, but only to show that when the brain is impaired, you don’t get nauseous. So the nausea is a healthy reaction to the stimuli.

Why would pregnant women get motion sickness more often? They have added physical and mental stress. And the physical stress is the key. The baby bump changes the mother-to-be’s center of gravity, making them less stable, and more prone to swaying.

In summary, seasickness is a type of photo epilepsy. Pirates didn’t just wear eyepatches because it made them look tough, or so they could see in the dark. They wore them to prevent abdominal seizures that we call seasickness.

Proving the afterlife

Energy cannot be created or destroyed. It’s the first law of Thermodynamics. And it’s important here. 

What else do you need to know? That the soul exists, and it’s pure energy. We know that your mind and body don’t go anywhere when you die. We can see that. But there is one function of human consciousness that we don’t observe: how fast we’re vibrating. [Yes, you read that right]

So if we can assume that the soul exists, and it is pure energy. Literally a frequency and a magnitude. If your soul is pure energy, and energy cannot be created or destroyed, there is an afterlife. 

And the craziest part of all, is that we control the speed that we vibrate. The more stress you put on the human body, the faster it vibrates and the faster it ages. You have a unique frequency, and a unique amplitude, and it’s made up of the stresses that have made you who you are.
