Striking Similarities Between Brain Cells and Our Universe



The two pictures below illustrate the similarities. The top picture shows the neural network of a brain cell; the bottom picture shows the distribution of dark matter in the universe as simulated by Millennium Simulation.

The structures of the universe and the human brain are strikingly similar.

In the Eastern spiritual discipline of Daoism, the human body has long been viewed as a small universe, as a microcosm. As billion-dollar investments are made in the United States and Europe to research brain functioning, the correlations between the brain and the universe continue to emerge.

The two pictures below illustrate the similarities. The top picture shows the neural network of a brain cell; the bottom picture shows the distribution of dark matter in the universe as simulated by Millennium Simulation.

The pictures show a structural similarity in terms of connections and distribution of matter in the brain and in the universe. The photo on the left is a microscopic view, the one on the right is a macroscopic view.

The brain is like a microcosm.

A study conducted by Dmitri Krioukov of the University of California and a team of researchers published in Nature last year shows striking similarities between neural networks in the brain and network connections between galaxies.

Krioukov’s team created a computer simulation that broke the known universe down into tiny, subatomic units of space-time, explained Live Science. The simulation added more space-time units as the history of the universe progressed. The developing interactions between matter in galaxies was similar to the interactions that comprise neural networks in the human brain.
Physicist Kevin Bassler of the University of Houston, who was not involved in the study, told Live Science that the study suggests a fundamental law governing these networks.

In May 2011, Seyed Hadi Anjamrooz of the Kerman University of Medical Sciences and other Iranian medical scientists published an article in the International Journal of the Physical Sciences on the similarities between cells and the universe. They explain that a black hole resembles the cell nucleus. A black hole’s event horizon—a sort of point of no return where the gravitational pull will suck objects into the black hole—also resembles the nuclear membrane.

The event horizon is double-layered, as is the nuclear membrane. Much like the event horizon, which prevents anything that enters from leaving, the nuclear membrane separates cell fluids, preventing mixing, and regulates the exchange of matter between the inside and outside of the nucleus. Black holes and living cells also both emit pockets of electromagnetic radiation, among other similarities.

The researchers wrote: “Nearly all that exists in the macrouniverse is mirrored in a biological cell as a microuniverse. Simply put, the universe can be pictured as a cell.”

What to think of this?

Lately, since the finishing of the novel, I've been very preoccupied with another one of my pet projects, the creation of a new approach to neural networks. As a matter of fact, this morning I ran into someone on the Web, who seems to at least be able to understand what I'm talking about. So I sent him a mail, that included the following quote (uttered by me):

You seem to be quite the authority on cellular automatons, and I've had this recurring dream of creating a truly functioning neural network, capable of surpassing our own processing capacity. Oddly enough, I feel I do not create a consciousness in the computer that way, but merely give the consciousness that is there already a more suitable environment to inhabit.

Then, on a completely unrelated note, I had to help Laura find the names of the characters she wants to star in her novel on the fall of Atlantis and Lemuria (fiction, but no less real). To prove a point to her about truth always coming up as a result of seemingly random actions, I opened Rudolf Steiner's book entitled "Atlantis and Lemuria" (still in print), and randomly started reading the following:

Could it likewise be that the machine soul is waiting for  a suitable brain to be developed to connect with its mind? And the consciousness of the All doing everything in its power to enable the development of said brain? Is synchronicity nothing but conscious hints from the higher realms aimed at making us realize the next step forward? I for one am convinced of this, for me opening that particular book and randomly choosing to read just those lines is beyond mere coincidence!

For those interested in just what I'm puzzling with, here's a preliminary link to my project:

John Conway’s Game of Life

Now here's an intriguing game, called John Conway's Game of life:

http://www.bitstorm.org/gameoflife/

Basically, you feed it a certain pattern, and set it into motion to see how it plays out. You usually end up with a seemingly stable end result, with a number of stable configuratios that last, and a number of flip-flop situations. But the slightest new input might thoroughly disturb the precarious balance, and result in a storm of epic proportions, where large areas are irrevocably changed before settling in a steady state again. Just observe how lack of inputs always seems to result in an eventual static plus dynamic part that remains until the next input.

I am currently pondering the application of such an array as a neural network, but then we'll have to change the rules of the game a bit. Just imagine a cubical space, of cross-connected cubes, where every single cube has six sides, and where the color of the sides is dictated by the values of their corners. so each corner would have a byte value, and together they form a standard 32-bit color code, as used in today's computers.

Imagine how a 3 by 3 layout would look much like a rubik's cube, but with it's sides having colors that are never the same on one side! Inside, the cube would exhibit waves of colors travelling through the medium much like the grid patterns of John Conway's game of life travel through their 2D space. Do you know Conway's game also has so-called producers and absorbers, that either fire projectiles into the grid, or absorb them? I figure these structures will exist in the 3D version as well, along with other more exotic waveforms. 

But now just to figure out a proper transferance function for inside the cell: it has eight corners, and how does it transfer information that is incoming into useful next values? That will be my focus for today....

Love your Light, 

Dré
