Evolutionary biologists write about vestigial organs and how they’ve lost most of their original function through evolution. What about the possibility of an organ that has an extraordinary new function waiting to evolve INTO?
I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately in terms of my new skill, Upsight. I’ve been thinking about the possibility that I may not be hallucinating at all. Maybe, just maybe, I see something no one else, or very few people can see, at least waking and consciously. What if the signal my brain is receiving is not coming from inside my brain, but coming from outside my brain? Like a radio signal broadcast. What if my new brain is picking up gravitational waves from the other side of the universe? Gravitational waves from this side of the universe too; gravitational waves from everywhere.
I started considering this in 2016 when I ran across an article about scientists at LIGO’s detecting the first gravitational waves.
Follow me on this.
There is a phenomenon known as the ganzfeld effect. From Wikipedia: The ganzfeld effect (from German for “complete field”) or perceptual deprivation is a phenomenon of perception caused by exposure to an unstructured, uniform stimulation field. The effect is the result of the brain amplifying neural noise in order to look for the missing visual signals. The noise is interpreted in the higher visual cortex and gives rise to hallucinations.
Why would the brain amplify neural noise? For what purpose? What is neural noise anyway? I’ll tell you. Neural noise is a scientific name for a signal that isn’t completely understood. The brain doesn’t do anything without a purpose. We may not understand the purpose at a conscious level, but we don’t have to. Think of your unconscious body functions, like breathing. You don’t think about taking your next breath, it just happens. The only time you think about it is during meditation or when your lungs are in distress, and you can’t find air. The brain is built to not only survive but to thrive. Our conscious human self doesn’t know what the brain is doing most of the time, but I’m telling you the brain knows what it’s doing. It’s amplifying the “neural noise” looking for useful information for its host’s(the body) survival.
The noise is interpreted in the higher visual cortex and gives rise to hallucinations.
Let me put it another way. The human eye is picking up gravitational waves from this unstructured field. Without visible light waves to essentially drown out the signal, the brain is doing it’s best to understand the information carried in these gravitational waves and to translate these waves into meaningful information for its survival. The simplest/easiest way to do that is through images, pictures, and visual stories.
Our primitive brains have been doing this unconsciously for thousands of years. Especially during sleep, arguably the longest period a human being is willingly exposed to an unstructured, uniform stimulation field. A.K.A the dark.
It’s called dreaming.
Humans have been dreaming since recorded history. It’s an integral part of the sleep process. There have been a number of studies on dreams and lucid dreaming (The ability to control your dreams, influence them and interact with them, while knowing it’s a dream.) What if our dream images are, in fact, our brain converting gravitation waves into useful information for personal survival? As a society were taught to dismiss dreams as random unconscious creations by our brain. They’re meaningless and unimportant. Or, if they are important, we’re not sure why.
Many psychiatrists, neurologists, and academics dismiss dreams as a function of the mind that we will never completely understand. Others study them for deeper meaning. But few people agree on what purpose they serve.
No one’s ever made a connection between dreams, gravitational waves, and hallucinations until now.
What I’m saying is that I can see gravitational waves.
I’m the first person to make a connection between hallucinations and gravitational waves. The first person to believe that some types of hallucinations and ALL of our dreams are, in fact, our minds reacting/processing/interpreting gravitational waves passing through our brains at the speed of light.
If that sounds insane, then I might be onto something.
Somehow my vision has evolved this ability to pick up these infinitely small waves. Too actually see them. My brain has evolved as well so it can process/understand these waves.
As important, I’ve evolved the ability to stay connected and tuned into this part of the gravitational/electromagnetic spectrum. I can tune out the light waves and focus on the gravitational waves. I don’t need to be asleep. And yes, classical gravity and quantum gravity are in fact both connected to the traditional electromagnetic spectrum, but it’s not like you would imagine. The conventional view of the electromagnetic spectrum is only a fraction of its entirety. It’s much more complicated.
How do I know? Because I see it every day. I shut my eyes or merely shift my focus and see this fantastical spectrum.
Physicists finally have the ability and technology to measure classical gravitational waves. We know electromagnetic waves can be used to carry information in the form of light and radio waves. We know some animals can even see ultraviolet light. Others can see different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
My vision has evolved the ability to see along the multidimensional gravitational/electromagnetic spectrums. And my brain has co-evolved to interpret these waves. Gravitational waves carry information similarly as traditional electromagnetic waves do. It’s similar, but not the same. We just haven’t been able to put the pieces together.
Everyone who’s ever lived has wakened from a dream and wondered how their unconscious has come up with some crazy story. I believe the brain is receiving and converting these gravitational waves to images and stories only meant for the observer or the dreamer. Even if another observer received the same gravitational signal, the deeper meaning or subtext wouldn’t make sense. It’s receiver specific.
Our brain is working during REM sleep. We easily measure brain waves while sleeping. What if brain waves are actually quantum gravitational waves the brain unconsciously processes as a response to the classic gravitational waves the brain is receiving? Said another way, classical gravitational waves coming in, quantum gravitational waves going out.
No. That’s not right. Or it’s incomplete. We measure brain waves with the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we have the technology to measure. We need a new technology that would measure gravitation waves the brain receives and emits during sleep. Gravitational wave phases would more than likely be inversely related to the electromagnetic wave phases we have during sleep. In other words, the deeper we go into the sleep cycle, the more amplified and more frequent the gravitational waves. As the electromagnetic waves the brain emits decreases, the gravitation waves more than likely increases. We just need to find a way to measure it.
What technology do we have to measure the gravitational waves the brain is receiving and emitting? None. Our eyes will have to do for the time being.
Gravitational waves are passing through us all the time. But our brain must be tuned into the proper frequency or channel to receive the information. Apparently, we tune into and out of this state unconsciously as we sleep.
This shift in perspective has a powerful affect on how I think about Upsight.
What if it’s not all in my head?
Instead of my brain creating these visions, what if I have “gravity-receptors” in my eyes that see gravitational waves and my brain is trying to interpret their meaning? Seeing doesn’t necessarily mean understanding. Upsight is no exception. In much the same way the photoreceptors in our eyes pick up light waves and send signals to the brain for processing — the same way our ears send signals to the brain about the sounds we hear. The eye is the most evolved part of the brain. It would make sense that with continued evolution they would eventually pick up gravitational waves. It makes sense to me anyway. It also feels right.
Most importantly, this hypothesis is testable.
More information is getting into my brain. I’m better connected than I was before. While I was getting one of my MRI’s, I was curious to see if my Upsight would work. Would the giant spinning magnets interfere with my Upsight? They didn’t — not one bit. Not only could I still manifest the visions, but I could also change them with a thought. It was business as usual. Giant magnetic waves do not influence them. Magnets have no practical affect on gravity. There’s something here that should be explored.
The most obvious benefits of this possible mutation so far have been an increase in natural intelligence, improved combinatorial thinking, overall numeracy, and my emergent visuospatial skills. I have a new found ability to look at problems, situations or opportunities from an additional perspective. I can literally step outside my mind and view my decision-making process. It’s almost like a guiding force is helping with my reasoning skills.
In a nutshell my, “I See Gravitational Waves Hypothesis” states that my Upsight is the result of a cellular mutation in the photosensitive retinal ganglion cells. The mutation affects these cells as well as the suprachiasmatic nucleus and perhaps even the entire Hypothalamus.
I believe the first observable and measurable display of this mutation is my ability to see gravitational waves leading to the benefits in thinking and reasoning that I mentioned above. While we may not yet have the technology to measure whether an eye is picking up gravitational waves directly, we do have the technology to see what areas of the brain are active during dreaming, visuospatial thinking and reasoning skills. MRI’s. fMRI’s, EEG’s, Eye tracking tools, etc.
I’ll be traveling to San Francisco sometime in 2020 to begin research with the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute. We are developing a series of tests to study Upsight, my visuospatial superpower. The first step in what I hope will ultimately prove this hypothesis. And if I’m wrong? So what. Maybe it’s Dark Matter. Either way, it’s cool as shit, and I feel lucky to have this gift.
