|Brain • Mind • Soul|
The topics of the above five books appear unrelated, but they are actually interconnected as indicated by arrows. At the center is "Frontiers in Microtubules" which focuses on the role of microtubules in long-range synchronization that generates brain's alpha, theta and gamma waves. "The Origin of Consciousness" presents evidence for the "Alpha Hypothesis" which posits that consciousness emerges from the global synchronization of the alpha waves. At a more fundamental level, the alpha waves may create a gravitational geon, while the theta and gamma waves encode information about environment and memory that can be consciously perceived when the information (carried by gravitational waves) is bound by the gravitational geon.
Tau, a microtubule-associated protein, is known to play a central role in .
CRMP2, another microtubule-associated protein, has emerged as a key player in bipolar disorder. It could also play a crucial role in memory extinction and retrieval, as detailed in
"Born to Forget, Die to Remember". The proposed mechanism can explain a near-death phenomena: life review.
The gravitational geon created by a healthy brain is part of the "mind" which, at any moment, includes only a tiny fraction of our life experiences.
By contrast, the gravitational geon created by a dying brain may be identified as the "
