Discovery of quantum vibrations in ‘microtubules’ inside brain neurons supports controversial theory of consciousness

Posted in Science on January 30, 2015 by betweentwopines

A review and update of a controversial 20-year-old theory of consciousness claims that consciousness derives from deeper level, finer scale activities inside brain neurons. The recent discovery of quantum vibrations in “microtubules” inside brain neurons corroborates this theory, according to review authors. They suggest that EEG rhythms (brain waves) also derive from deeper level microtubule vibrations, and that from a practical standpoint, treating brain microtubule vibrations could benefit a host of mental, neurological, and cognitive conditions.

A review and update of a controversial 20-year-old theory of consciousness published in Physics of Life Reviews claims that consciousness derives from deeper level, finer scale activities inside brain neurons. The recent discovery of quantum vibrations in “microtubules” inside brain neurons corroborates this theory, according to review authors Stuart Hameroff and Sir Roger Penrose. They suggest that EEG rhythms (brain waves) also derive from deeper level microtubule vibrations, and that from a practical standpoint, treating brain microtubule vibrations could benefit a host of mental, neurological, and cognitive conditions.

The theory, called “orchestrated objective reduction” (‘Orch OR’), was first put forward in the mid-1990s by eminent mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose, FRS, Mathematical Institute and Wadham College, University of Oxford, and prominent anesthesiologist Stuart Hameroff, MD, Anesthesiology, Psychology and Center for Consciousness Studies, The University of Arizona, Tucson. They suggested that quantum vibrational computations in microtubules were “orchestrated” (“Orch”) by synaptic inputs and memory stored in microtubules, and terminated by Penrose “objective reduction” (‘OR’), hence “Orch OR.” Microtubules are major components of the cell structural skeleton.

Orch OR was harshly criticized from its inception, as the brain was considered too “warm, wet, and noisy” for seemingly delicate quantum processes.. However, evidence has now shown warm quantum coherence in plant photosynthesis, bird brain navigation, our sense of smell, and brain microtubules. The recent discovery of warm temperature quantum vibrations in microtubules inside brain neurons by the research group led by Anirban Bandyopadhyay, PhD, at the National Institute of Material Sciences in Tsukuba, Japan (and now at MIT), corroborates the pair’s theory and suggests that EEG rhythms also derive from deeper level microtubule vibrations. In addition, work from the laboratory of Roderick G. Eckenhoff, MD, at the University of Pennsylvania, suggests that anesthesia, which selectively erases consciousness while sparing non-conscious brain activities, acts via microtubules in brain neurons.

“The origin of consciousness reflects our place in the universe, the nature of our existence. Did consciousness evolve from complex computations among brain neurons, as most scientists assert? Or has consciousness, in some sense, been here all along, as spiritual approaches maintain?” ask Hameroff and Penrose in the current review. “This opens a potential Pandora’s Box, but our theory accommodates both these views, suggesting consciousness derives from quantum vibrations in microtubules, protein polymers inside brain neurons, which both govern neuronal and synaptic function, and connect brain processes to self-organizing processes in the fine scale, ‘proto-conscious’ quantum structure of reality.”

After 20 years of skeptical criticism, “the evidence now clearly supports Orch OR,” continue Hameroff and Penrose. “Our new paper updates the evidence, clarifies Orch OR quantum bits, or “qubits,” as helical pathways in microtubule lattices, rebuts critics, and reviews 20 testable predictions of Orch OR published in 1998 — of these, six are confirmed and none refuted.”

An important new facet of the theory is introduced. Microtubule quantum vibrations (e.g. in megahertz) appear to interfere and produce much slower EEG “beat frequencies.” Despite a century of clinical use, the underlying origins of EEG rhythms have remained a mystery. Clinical trials of brief brain stimulation aimed at microtubule resonances with megahertz mechanical vibrations using transcranial ultrasound have shown reported improvements in mood, and may prove useful against Alzheimer’s disease and brain injury in the future.

Lead author Stuart Hameroff concludes, “Orch OR is the most rigorous, comprehensive and successfully-tested theory of consciousness ever put forth. From a practical standpoint, treating brain microtubule vibrations could benefit a host of mental, neurological, and cognitive conditions.”

The review is accompanied by eight commentaries from outside authorities, including an Australian group of Orch OR arch-skeptics. To all, Hameroff and Penrose respond robustly.

Penrose, Hameroff and Bandyopadhyay will explore their theories during a session on “Microtubules and the Big Consciousness Debate” at the Brainstorm Sessions, a public three-day event at the Brakke Grond in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, January 16-18, 2014. They will engage skeptics in a debate on the nature of consciousness, and Bandyopadhyay and his team will couple microtubule vibrations from active neurons to play Indian musical instruments. “Consciousness depends on anharmonic vibrations of microtubules inside neurons, similar to certain kinds of Indian music, but unlike Western music which is harmonic,” Hameroff explains.

Images of Adam and Eve discovered in Paradise.

Posted in Ancient History, Archaeology, History, Religion on January 30, 2015 by betweentwopines


By Kantzveldt at ATS.
More properly the consideration of Indus valley type seals found in Bahrain, the Sumerian equivalent of Paradise, showing representation of a new idealized couple, not likely to have been considered as the first people but rather the first couple of a particular nature.

I love the basic symbolism of those, man and woman and a third factor, the fish sign, to produce not unsurprisingly ‘fish people’ whose cult was celebrated at the Great Bath as i outlined here.

The consideration that this does relate to the breeding of a new pair is of course strongly reinforced by association with the mating bull, and given the Celestial association of that with Taurus this was cosmic breeding.

There is also seen in conjunction with seals of this type a seed like pod, again containing three seeds mainting the essential numerology of what was involved.

There is complexity within the tradition because as i outlined in The Place of Origin the fish symbol is indicative of Piscis Austrinus of the constellation Fomalhaut and yet in Indus Valley civilization that Fish is often seen in close connection to the bull, generally placed above it.

This suggests that whilst the Fish was understood as a factor in this great Celestial breeding programme that was more directly related to the Pleiades, above Taurus.

This is reinforced by the fact that the early Goddess of sexuality and reproduction, Inanna, directly related to the Pleiades and there seems to have been an Indus valley equivalent, who along with seven male and seven female helpers seen right.

These of course are relating to the numerology of the Pleiades having arrived in a Celestial barque from there, using Taurus as a suitable means of transport, if you look closely at the seal impression of a boat you can see the seven male and female helpers on the great central panolpy;

The seal is sketchy evidence but it does correlate to what i outlined here in Arriving from the Pleiades with regards to the seven male and female crew members under the leadership of the Goddess sat upon the spiked throne, and the magnificent model discovered representing this.

There is then a depth and complexity to the symbolism, the overall instigation of any Celestial breeding programme is under the authority of the Great Bull, an early archetype for the primary Deity Anu, and Inanna as the Pleiades is his glamouress assistant in conjunction with her crew, the association of these Deities with sexuality and reproduction was established in the E-anna centre of Uruk, even though they were generally happy enough simply breeding sheep and cows there.

One also sees that the crossing of space correlated to the crossing of water, and emergence from such in terms of the Fish Apkallu and the Abzu, this general command of the element of water and indirectly space was under the authority of Enki and so the Fish people were understood as under his general control, and the great Celestial axis symbol which spanned the Heavens which i outlined in Mysteries of Dilmun because it was represented by a tree also relates to the capillary action of water and it’s seeming capacity to defy gravity in feeding water upward throughout the system, so the tree of Life was the celestial conduit.

Strange Impact Event Vision and Subsequent Info

Posted in ATS Thread, Warnings on January 29, 2015 by betweentwopines

By 1Providence1 at ATS.
I’d like to share an odd set of occurrences.

Approximately 4 years ago, my friend and I were embarking on an endeavor into remote viewing, prediction through visions and drawing (like RV), and synchronicity. We discovered and experienced many, many different very odd things, including many accurate predictions, some via dreams, some via visions, some via drawing.

One day we were working on a drawing vision, and I ended up drawing what looked like some great impact in the Atlantic ocean, with a “Grey” observing. It also looked as if the being was maybe trying to stop the event, or to warn us.

Shortly thereafter, one of our Canadian members Jude11 here posted a thread about an apparent Earthquake that had occurred off the eastern coast of Canada, titled “I Died in a 10.3 EQ today”. Here is the thread:……

He provided the USGS link, and sure enough, right where I had drawn the impact, USGS was showing an approximate 10.3 earthquake.

Now, this was fairly unsettling. A 10.3 earthquake has the power in megatons of TNT:

9.56×10^6 Megathrust earthquakes record huge MW values, or total energy released. The 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake released 9,560 gigatons TNT equivalent.

1×10^8 The approximate energy released when the Chicxulub impact caused the mass extinction 66 million years ago was estimated to be equal to 100 teratons (i.e. 100 exagrams or approximately 220.462 quadrillion pounds) of TNT. That is roughly 8 billion times stronger than each of the bombs that hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the most energetic event on the history of Earth for hundreds of millions of years, far more powerful than any volcanic eruption, earthquake or firestorm. Such an explosion annihilated everything within a thousand miles of the impact in a split second. Such energy is equivalent to that needed to power the whole Earth for several centuries.

Essentially this indicates an energy that of an immense, unheard of earthquake, or very large impact event.

Now, this all seemed a bit crazy to me, I don’t and didn’t want to believe it. However, I looked at youtube the other day, and what did I find? Bear with me, this is after all youtube, but it does seem strange.

This one shows it hitting RIGHT where I had drawn the event’s ground zero.

Again it shows it hitting in the same area as the drawing

Is this simply an odd occurrence of collective thought, absolutely nothing, or something else?

The Ark of the Covenant

Posted in Ancient History, Archaeology, Religion, Sprituality on January 29, 2015 by betweentwopines

The Ark of the CovenantIn the most sacred and protected heart of the Temple of Solomon was placed the Ark of the Covenent, whose imagery may surprise you.

Cherubim is a plural Hebrew word with layers of meaning. In general it refers to highly awakened deities or angels.

The importance of the Ark cannot be overemphasized; see here how it was commanded of Moshe (Moses).

And HaShem spoke unto Moses, saying: ‘Speak unto the children of Israel, that they take for Me an offering; of every man whose heart maketh him willing ye shall take My offering…

And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them…

And they shall make an ark of acacia-wood: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof, and a cubit and a half the height thereof. And thou shalt overlay it with pure gold, within and without shalt thou overlay it, and shalt make upon it a crown of gold round about. And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four feet thereof; and two rings shall be on the one side of it, and two rings on the other side of it. And thou shalt make staves of acacia-wood, and overlay them with gold. And thou shalt put the staves into the rings on the sides of the ark, wherewith to bear the ark. The staves shall be in the rings of the ark; they shall not be taken from it. And thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee.

And thou shalt make an ark-cover of pure gold: two cubits and a half shall be the length thereof, and a cubit and a half the breadth thereof. And thou shalt make two cherubim of gold; of beaten work shalt thou make them, at the two ends of the ark-cover. And make one cherub at the one end, and one cherub at the other end; of one piece with the ark-cover shall ye make the cherubim of the two ends thereof. And the cherubim shall spread out their wings on high, screening the ark-cover with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the ark-cover shall the faces of the cherubim be. And thou shalt put the ark-cover above upon the ark; and in the ark thou shalt put the testimony that I shall give thee.

And there I will meet with thee, and I will speak with thee from above the ark-cover, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give thee in commandment unto the children of Israel. – Shemot / Exodus 25

“Rabbi Katina said, ‘When the Israelites would ascend [to the Holy Temple] on the festival, [the priest/kohen] would roll up the curtain for them, and display for them the cherubim, who were joined together [in an embrace].’ The priest/kohen would then tell them, ‘Behold the beloved feelings for you on the part of the Omnipresent are like the beloved feelings of a male for a female’.”

Rabba bar Rav Shila explains that “[The cherubim appeared in the engravings] as a man joined in an embrace with his female companion” – Babylonian Talmud, Yoma 54a

In other words, God manifests through sexual union and guides those who work with this Holy mystery.

This indicates a profound relationship with Hindu and Buddhist Tantra, as displayed in the santuaries of their temples:

The Ark of the Covenant


“Said Resh Lakish, ‘When the Gentiles entered the Sanctuary, they saw (the engravings of) the cherubim joined together in an embrace. They took (the engravings) out to the marketplace, and they said, Should these Israelites – whose blessing is a blessing and whose curse is a curse (so they are so close to G-d) – be involved in such (erotic) matters? Immediately, (the Romans) debased (the Israelites), as it is said, (Lamentations 1:8) All who once respected her (Israel), debased her, for they saw her nakedness.’” – Talmud, Yoma 54b

Predictions for 2015-2017 and 2020+

Posted in Prophesy, Warnings on January 28, 2015 by betweentwopines


By OneManMasquerade at ATS
Through my 12 years of travels and going through several lessons. I began to tap into what we call the Ether or the Universal Conscience.

This year is a special year a VERY SPECIAL YEAR! The Bear will devour the Eagle and for the Eagle will fall due to it’s greed and hunger for dominion. So heed my words very carefully and try to listen. This is not big end of time crap for that is not my role and nor is it the time of the return. These messages are for the following 2 years 2015-2017 much of it will be occurring this year so try to soak it in. Somethings for 2020+ will be also shared.

I will give you the keys to understanding and I ask for nothing in return from you but to listen to my words. I will try to put this in the most simplest terms. Trust me when it speaks it’s not as easy to understand as many of you so called prophets claim to say.


Russia will play a key role in the world in 2015 – 2017 and it will become the main strength and world power . The crisis that will occur due to the greed of the men in the West will not reach Russia and will not do as much damage to it as it will to all other nations. Russian and Chinese economy will prosper and grow during these financial tribulations. This will further ensure and further fortify their influence, position and growth in the future times.

During 2015 Russia is awaiting to receive the most amazing breakthroughs in the political arena, in science,technology and cultural establishments and achievements. Russia’s agriculture will prosper even more then ever during this time.Due to this Russia will play a key role in world peace missions and world aid missions.

Also further future breakthroughs will be in the Robotics and Space development, Russian Scientists will unlock truths and astonishing finds about existence, the galaxy and the universe.

The people of Ukraine will suffer a financial crisis like non ever before and the people of the East Ukraine (Donetsk and Lugansk) and West Ukraine (Kieve) will unite against the West Ukrainian government for it’s failures to save the nation and it’s people from such a crisis. Russia will play a key role in the foundation of peace during these times and Eastern Republics with the help of Russia will assist the recovery of the West Ukraine. The mistakes and crimes of the West Ukraine politicians will be finally realized and all documents and proof will come to light. A court of old will be held in place to trial these monsters for the crimes against their brethren.


There will be wild weather for most of Europe and Britain, also including India,Japan, Parts of China and North America. Many parts of these countries will be flooded and destroyed between 2015-2017. These events will spark off the great migration of Nations and it will be mostly to these 3 regions where most of the worlds populations will converge. Parts of North America, Russia and Canada will be the 3 main converging areas in the world during these times. However, a warning to America is that a good chunk of the East Coast will no longer be there. Many countries will no longer be on the map due to the damage that was done by men in white coats, this is because they tried to play God. NORAD is already aware of what is to come that’s why the coffins to hold 4-5 people each have been mass produced. It was never for martial law or mass genocide of Americans by the American government.


Africa will become a barren desert soon and the famine situation will become much much worse, it will get to a stage where many people in Africa will resolve to cannibalism. This is when Russia will send aid to the region and as a last result a vast amount of people will migrate to Russia. To be honest if you think Africa is bad now wait until you see this for yourself!


A new virus will emerge that will stop people from eating goat meat,pork and lamb. It will be either an adapt strain of the swine flue or never before seen virus that the boys in the lab cooked up (But the message was clear it will be MAN MADE). However, the plus side people will begin to eat more healthier as fish,vegetables and fruits etc.


Thanks to the greed of men in the West (America and TBT) there will be a war in the Middle East. The war will be initiated by 1 of the 5 groups which are an extremist group, Syria,Israel, Libya or Iran. Due to destabilization done in the region over the decade + by the greed of the bold eagle. A nuclear weapon or weapons will be used and death toll will be in the thousands, the situation will be less then it was meant to be thanks to the influence of Russia,China and Europe that will be part of Russia during those times.


Obama is the last president of the America we now know. Great change will come to the USA a revolution that will either make or break the united states. During the financial tribulations of the once great nation, republics and collations will be formed which will further destabilize the once great nation. But do not panic it is for the better of America and for the return of balance to the world. Also know that with the fall of America the great 5 year long WW3 will finally come to an end. Also WW3 does not mean nuclear warfare so please stop spreading the doom porn.


By the nearing of 2020 people with disabilities will have cures for most conditions, the average life span will be 120 and cellular regeneration will be a common thing affordable for all. Basically looking 20-30 at 80 so enjoy those times and it will be a personal choice, these breakthroughs will occur mostly from Russia and China. The religious sector of the world will no longer be as influential as it is now, not sure why maybe a new young pope that will change religion for the better.


For 2020+ I can only give you two predictions, an asteroid will strike the moon and take a good chunk of it out. But rest assured this is by so called Divine Will and that asteroid was meant to hit Earth. Scientists will try to calculate how they got it wrong and I will give you the answer they forgot to carry over the factor that is the One of many One’s

The TBT will try to do another take over of the united world and united world nations but will fail miserably in the process and will be stopped.

These are exciting times for the world

it will either unite us or break us as a specie

edit on 28-1-2015 by OneManMasquerade because: Curse these mortal thoughts!
Also a message to Obama and the F#@karoo gang that is NATO, EU etc. Putin was elected by God of Abraham, he may not know it or not realize it. But whatever you do to Russia and to him will return 10 fold onto your people and your nations. Russia will only grow stronger and unite the people of Europe and Asia as one Union of trade, science and national values. The differences so hard put in place by the West and the F#@karoo gang to keep nations fighting will be lifted like a large boulder and thrown a side. There will no longer be borders that separate the people of the world!
The United States plan for – All Out War will fail the debt will not be written off and the debt collectors will come. Also do not trust many of the conspiracy theorists as they are part of the plan, America can write off the debt in 2 ways an all out war or a civil war. Many of the conspiracy theorists agenda is to spark off a 2nd Civil War within the United States. Be careful of these false prophets and messengers for they are like snakes in the box of kittens.

The time line alterations have already occurred and I believe many of you have experienced them. This was done to alter the outcome and to put things back on track. To make those so called TBT realize that they don’t run the show and the parents have been watching what the silly kids been doing home alone the whole time.

Is this picture a ‘seed’ sent to Earth by aliens? Scientists discover mysterious organism

Posted in Alien, Cosmos, Nature, Science on January 26, 2015 by betweentwopines


THIS astonishing picture of an “organism” found in space has baffled scientists who think it is a “seed” sent to Earth by aliens.

By Nathan Rao

Some scientists believe this is a seed sent to earth by aliensUniversity of Buckingham

Some scientists believe this is a seed sent to earth by aliens

The never-before seen image shows a microscopic metal globe spewing out biological material feared to be an infectious agent.

Though the origin or purpose of the mysterious sphere is uncertain, experts say it could contain genetic material – the precursor to life.

They sensationally claim it could have been designed by an intelligent species to “seed” and propagate alien life on Earth.

It is the first time anything like this has been seen and points not only to the existence of extra-terrestrial life, but to complex and civilised beings watching our planet.

It follows findings that DNA  capable of inserting itself into living creatures and replicating can exist in harsh space conditions.

A tiny ‘plasmid’, a circular strand of DNA used in genetic engineering, was sent into space from Sweden in 2011 on the exterior of a TEXUS-49 rocket.

The mysterious organism has baffled scientistsUniversity of Buckingham

The mysterious organism has baffled scientists

After enduring 1,000C heat it was found to still be intact and with its biological properties when it returned to Earth.

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe director of the Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology at the University of Buckingham in England, said it is further proof of alien life.

However the latest finding, by Professor Milton Wainwright and his team from the University of Sheffield and the University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology, could reveal a much more sinister purpose.

Conjuring images as warned by H.G Wells in his 1898 novel War of the Worlds – it could have been deliberately engineered and sent to Earth to infect the planet.

Professor Wainwright said the structure is made from the metals titanium and vanadium with a “gooey” biological liquid oozing from its centre.

He said there are several theories as to where it came from, the first being it is a complete microorganism programmed to propagate alien life on Earth.

“It is  a ball about the width of a human hair, which has filamentous life on the outside and a gooey biological material oozing from its centre,” he said.

“We were stunned when X-ray analysis showed that the sphere is made up mainly of titanium, with a trace of vanadium.

“One theory is it was sent to Earth by some unknown civilisation in order to continue seeding the planet with life.

“This seeming piece of science fiction, called “directed panspermia” would probably not be taken seriously by any scientist were it not for the fact that it was very seriously suggested by the Nobel Prize winner of DNA fame, Sir Francis Crick.

“Unless of course we can find details of the civilisation that is supposed to have sent it in this respect it is probably an unprovable theory.”

Professor Wainwright and his team found the object in dust and particulate matter collected from the stratosphere.

He sent balloons 27km into the sky to collect debris from space and isolated several particles he claims are proof of life in space.

It comes as the mysterious “ghost particle”, also found by Professor Wainwright was revealed and follows the revelation last year of the astonishing “Dragon Particle” the first of its kind to point towards proof of life in space.

Professor Wainwright said the curious orb landed on the sampler balloon it left a tiny impact crater proving it could not have gently fallen from close by.

He said: “On hitting the stratosphere sampler the sphere made an impact crater, a minute version of the huge impact crater on Earth caused by the asteroid said to have killed off the dinosaurs.

“This impact crater proves that the sphere was incoming to Earth from space, an organism coming from Earth would not be travelling fast enough when it fell back to Earth to cause such damage.

“This seems never before to have been found on Earth.”

He said one theory is the object was released deliberately to infect the human race with life-threatening diseases, another is that it travelled millions of miles on a comet.

He said: “For the moment, we are content to say that the life-containing titanium sphere came from space, possibly from a comet.

“NASA is currently sending a balloon into the stratosphere to look for life.

“Hopefully they will get the same results as we have, whether or not they acknowledge what the  team have found, or claim the discovery for themselves remains to be seen.”

The findings come as scientists in the UK and Japan launch the ISPA (Institute for the Study of Panspermia and Astroeconomics) which seeks to prove life on Earth originated from Space.

Professor Wickramasinghe, director for research at the institute has long-maintained biological material including bacteria and viruses are constantly raining down from the skies.

He said: “Mainstream science and institutions have fought against theories which expound these beliefs but now evidence from meteorites, from samples of bacteria from space and from space observation is making resistance more difficult.

“Proving that the Earth is in a constant exchange of matter with the larger cosmos would have implications not only in terms of our identity, but could also give us insight into alien viruses which may be important for our group identity, evolution and survival itself.”



This Recipe For Golden Milk Fights Cancer

Posted in Diseases, Drugs, Health, Medicine on January 25, 2015 by betweentwopines

Golden Milk, is a unique tonic that applies the attributes of a special Indian root called Turmeric, and strengthens it with many other organic ingredients. Turmeric has been used for thousands of years as a cleansing substance for the body. It is known to be beneficial to the inner organs, the spine and the joints. The milk recipe displayed here has been shared to potentialize its healing properties.


  • 2 Cups of Almond Milk (homemade recommended)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Local Honey (may be added after milk is cooked)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil (optional)
  • 1 Teaspoon of Ground Turmeric
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick or 1 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon
  • Small Pinch of Black Pepper and Grated Ginger (the fresher the better!)

To make the milk, simply mix all the following ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a light boil for about 5-7 minutes (or until golden yellow)
