So, there I was, working on these constantly changing numbers, trying to memorize them from one source and record them in another and I thought: “Isn’t this a good thing … you know, keeping the brain exercised?” After all, that is what the current, medical science claims. But, I wondered, “How could I be benefiting my brain with all this additional information when I am potentially faced with two problems: overload and emf?” I’ve previously covered the problems with memory overload in another article. However, I’ve only scantly covered the idea of electromagnetic interference (emi) (and electromagnetic frequencies (emf)), and the potential harm on human beings because frankly, that has not been in my scope. But, I wondered about all the “apps” and programs being offered on computers to “enhance” brain function with electronic learning. It can’t be that good for people, could it?
The two questions I had were:
- When was Alzheimer’s and its symptoms officially recognized? And,
- Was there artificial emf before or during the time it was first officially recognized?
My main premise was this: if Alzheimer’s (and other neurological disorders) could be linked to emf radiation, then there might be more to what’s happening in the world and a new way to approach a solution.
I was not disappointed. Not only were my initial presumptions validated, but I was not the first to recognize this.
Alzheimer’s was first “officially” diagnosed in 1906.
The first radio broadcast was in … (drum roll, please): 1906. (<= “Creepy!”)
Some of the first electric utility lines were used in California, in 1879.
(funny … that a lot of the largest neurological problems, and other biological issues like cancer, start around this time. I recognize that a lack of science before this time to diagnose these issues could be a contributor to that fact … but “rule 39” … there is no such thing as a coincidence)
However, this is not a “blame electricity for all the world’s problems“, paper (I do that here). This is a discussion on a theory regarding Alzheimer’s and emi (since I will later discuss that there are potentially multiple contributors). The importance of recognizing a “more than coincidental” connection between the two starts by recognizing the fundamental concern about how emf radiation may be the single-largest contributor to Alzheimer’s disease. As I wrote previously, I am not the first to consider this. Others, like the folks at Earthcom, are trying to address the same matter. It is not a conspiracy because it’s not based on some big corporation trying to “get” anyone. The link between electromagnetic interference and Alzheimer’s is a concern based on some very relevant data. Let me start by giving you the background support for this theory:
The typical measure of brain waves are called “Alpha”, “Beta”, and “Delta” (anyone feel free to step up and correct me or elaborate if I am mistaken, please). These are electromagnetic wavelengths measured in the range of 0.5 Hz to 42 Hz. So, when you think of electromagnetic radiation, it doesn’t seem like brain waves even really fit in because they are so slow:
Clearly, the electromagnetic transmission of radio waves starts at 4000 Hz and doesn’t present a clear and present connection with brain waves. Contrarily, the frequency of electric power lines is 60 Hz, much closer to the human brain, and yet, it is still outside of the range of brain waves. But, there’s the problem with this assumption. The frequency of “brainwaves” is measured based on the emitted wavelengths passing through other em fields and biological and chemical matter (and outside of the skull). The actual electrical conductance in the brain occurs within 5×10^-9 meters with only a 70 milliVolt potential difference. Even AA batteries are 5×10^-2 meters (and that’s a VERY big difference). In fact, neurons transmit at a rate of 200 times per second (that we know of), which takes 5 milliseconds, and on its own is already equal to 200 Hertz (without taking into consideration distance or any other factors). So, the 42 Hertz for brain waves is already not indicative of the actual frequency of neurons.
How does one accurately measure the frequency of a wavelength so short that it defies much of today’s technology (let alone in a single cell that cannot be accessed without dangerous, intrusive surgery)?
Neurons (transmitted via electromagnetic forces) move with a speed of 14 million volts per meter, which is 4 times the electrostatic force to produce lightning in a thunderstorm! Lightning produces frequencies starting at 3000 Hz!! Knowing this, we can begin to recognize that the actual “frequency” of electromagnetic waves in the brain are potentially higher-level frequencies (that occur on a super-micro scale in excessively short periods of time).
Based on this knowledge, here is my “K-Alzheimer’s Theory”:
The frequency of the emitted waves from the human brain are low only as a result of combining low frequency sensors with an infinitely short burst (duration) of transmission, contained within other em fields and biological matter that inhibit the true fact that the fundamental functions of chemical transmission in the brain are operating at a range of frequencies from .5 Hz to thousands of times faster than previously thought and are therefore susceptible to interruption from higher wavelengths of external electromagnetic radiation.
Maybe this idea is not completely “new”, but think about it and why it is significant! If people are less concerned about the interference of brain waves due to the significant difference in wavelengths (where most typically, frequencies of the same wavelength interfere with one another), then we are REALLY missing the big picture. Thus, the reason ‘brain waves’ in the Alpha to Delta range are not interfered with so predominately (as far as our understanding of em wave interference goes), that makes sense. But, what about the tiny, 70 milliVolts of electricity passing through that incredibly small 5×10^-9 meters? It IS operating at a significantly higher rate and therefore, it CAN BE SUBSTANTIALLY affected by cross-interfering em frequencies. Even if it only flows in short bursts, exposure to em radiation for any period of time can cross over and interfere with those few times that the bursts of energy occur.
The brain works like a billion DC batteries all interconnected. DC current only goes one way. As part of this theory, I propose that reversing current in the brain has the same, damaging effect on brain cells as it does anywhere else: cells are overloaded, heat up, and die. Fortunately, the brain, when young, has mechanisms to build new connections, re-route power, and re-build its systems … but that doesn’t last forever. Concurrently, I also don’t believe that the brain has a “router” within each of its batteries [cells] (to save time and space, it just has more batteries). Thus, when interfering with the transmission of electricity, there is no “clock” or “CPU” to determine if the right number of bits were transmitted (allowing for no error correction and re-transmission, lest there be a huge build up of electrons, voltage, and heat), and therefore, in the real world, human beings can suffer “confusion”, “dementia”, and other problems. By understanding events such as hyperpolarization that “force” a resting period before neurons can fire again, we can see just how fragile the cellular structure of the brain is and why any increase or build up of added electrical energy would be excessively detrimental to the surrounding tissue.
This theory can be demonstrated by those moments when people get portions of songs stuck in their heads. Think about how destructive interference of a song playing in your mind might work. At some point, the interference is like a “scratch” on a record, and the needle can’t move forward. Once that connection is broken, the record will just keep playing to that point. The amount of time that the song stays stuck is the amount of time it takes for the brain to re-wire itself and move everything around, or just give up (and suddenly, you can’t even remember what song “was” stuck in your head). If it takes that long to rewire song lyrics, think about how long it would take to rewire an entire lifetime of memories. Thus, Alzheimer’s patients lose touch with recent and more significant memories, like loved ones, because the brain can no longer rebuild those connections (and the interference over and over again has literally caused an electrical short-out).
Another demonstration to support this theory is that I propose that the thickness of the electrical transmission nerves (and different lengths), like wires, differentiates the individual frequencies. This means that memories can be triggered by, or be more susceptible to, emi. This is what makes memories seem to spontaneously appear sometimes, it is what interferes with simple functions on certain days (that you just can’t seem to get the energy to be motivated), causes headaches when staring at monitors, and so on.
If we temporarily accept this principle, then we’re faced with a very, serious problem: we need to identify the range of frequencies and start building electronic devices, mechanical systems, and power transmission to work outside of it. That’s such a substantial (and financially overwhelming) undertaking that I doubt the world is non-apathetic enough to save itself. Unfortunately, this theory also leads to another very, unfortunate conclusion: a destructive, evolutionary turn of events.
Now, Alzheimer’s, and similar issues, may have existed before even the advent of artificial emf radiation because there other obstacles, such as natural radiation (although it raises a very dire concern about a solar flare and how that could cause wide-spread, catastrophic neurological damage). Additionally, hazardous chemicals could also contribute, but none of it on the same level as artificial emf radiation in the same frequency ranges as the brain. While I try to recognize the potential for the preexistence of some conditions, it should also be noted that the failure to diagnose a problem prior to the advent of new, scientific methods is not justification that a condition existed previously (the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence). The important and most relevant fact is the massive increase in occurrences of these disorders outside of any genetic disposition.
Fortunately, the positive takeaway from this theory is that there may be a very, simple answer for Alzheimer’s patients and others.
Unfortunately, there is a lack of technology specific enough to work at the incredibly small scale of the cells within the brain to single out areas of damage. If science could shift gears and focus on the higher frequency ranges of the brain (and it can be calculated based on known physics … and would be easier to work with), and set the emissions/measurement ranges higher to account for the biological and chemical blockers (that already slow down those same emf waves coming out of the brain), we could re-design the EEG cap and use it to control the flow of electricity. Of course, this would require micro-sizing each of the transmitters / conductors and then transferring a lot more power to them (within a 60 – 85 milliVolt range, but at slightly higher amplitude). That could be configured as one solution for ensuring that electricity flows in a singular direction (and potentially, forcibly rebuild connections where sections of nerves, axons, and synapses remain or once were).
Another possibility is to utilize the EEG cap (or even an MRI) to identify “short circuits” or hot spots in the brain (or potentially cold spots that should not be cold during certain mental activities), and do a much more introspective / intensive examination to identify where connections have been lost. I don’t know if a comparison can be done with a non-Alzheimer’s patient to help an Alzheimer’s patient (although with emf radiation having similar effects, there is room to argue that the similarities are strong enough for this), or if it would require a patient’s brain scan before and after symptoms. The purpose of identifying the locations is to pinpoint where we need to help rebuild matter (such as using positive electromagnetic energy to force healing as has been done in cancer).
Another consideration is to ensure that EEG caps with micro emitters set on a multi-frequency, highly focused transmission (by shape and manual modification of the electricity) must be designed to measure small bursts of energy. A 70 milliVolt burst of electricity across a gap as small as 5 x 10^-9, is very difficult to see without being up close … but it can be done. By emitting an emf pulse across different reaches of the brain and taking into consideration the the mass and electrical current interference, we should be able to use a highly sensitive receiver on the opposite end with a micro-second timer. Once a base-line is established (to determine the weakness and consistency of a signal from one side to the other), when asking an Alzheimer’s patient to recall specific memories, we can then look for those small “bursts” of electricity and where the “gaps” might be located.
Another potential fix based on this theory (and yes, this IS CRAZY), is to utilize the “aluminum” (or similar metal) cap that the so-called alien conspiracy theorists believe in (over the modified EEG cap). However, it’s not because aliens are screwing up peoples’ brains, but for people whose brains are more susceptible to emi, this solution would stop any continuing damage (and Alzheimer’s patients do get worse over time), A healthy, constant dose of oxygen (keeping the blood fresh), and perhaps even the introduction of biological stimulation (in whatever form needed to promote growth and health, ie. sodium, protein, potassium, etc.), for the brain would give it a chance to repair some of the broken connections. On the other hand, by the time Alzheimer’s has taken hold, it may mean that these folks need to spend the rest of their lives wearing a special device … but if that’s what gives them the memories of their loved ones back, I’m not too sure that many of them would protest!
While it may be too complex scientifically to focus on a single, cell body, based on some alternate theories of memory formation, it may be possible to focus on specific sub-regions and promote the concentrated transmission of energy from one point to another across multiple cell bodies. Technically, as electricity through axons only flows in one direction (and in this theory, it has previously been disrupted and destroyed the connection in the axon or depolarized the neurotransmitters), matching the transmission frequency of the nearby cell bodies should force stimulated growth/activity (and the stimulated energy would still only flow in one direction based on the design of brain cells). This may have to be done in short, timed bursts to stay within the limitations of hyperpolarization and the need to give that micro-second resting period.
Of course, this is only a theory and although scientifically sound (given the empirical evidence of high-frequency transmissions in the brain, knowledge about emf radiation interference, and the historical context of the disorder), requires some preliminary confirmations. To start with, we’d want to walk through the memories of multitudes of healthy individuals, once having redesigned the EEG cap for high-voltage frequency measurement, to get an idea of different memory “lengths” (identifying potentially similar areas across multiple groups of how and where memories are stored). We could then use the same method to walk through the earliest memories of an Alzheimer’s patient to discover where the degradation occurs and more accurately determine which parts of the brain need to be given additional voltage, oxygen, or whatever chemicals (or technology), science is working toward. It really is, that simple. It’s not much different than trans-cranial direct (or electromagnetic) stimulation, but with a specific focus on disrupting external emf radiation and matching the frequencies of the brain in the right areas for repair (although TCDS may have some unfounded claims and some long-term limitations that still need regulated).
(And, I am fully aware that when I write “simple”, the solution is not so simple as writing, “build a warp drive engine and now we can discover new resources!” That is ludicrous (no, not really …). But, the base-premise starts with understanding that we may potentially need short-burst, high-frequency transmission stimulation, not low-frequency.)
To test this theory, a control group could be used to describe specific events from their childhood, using a high voltage, focused emf radiation cap (that will emit a wide range of frequencies in short-enough bursts that it doesn’t cause actual damage), and shift the frequencies during the course of the description to determine at what point there is a “short circuit” or frequency interference. The same could be done with test mice, although extremely complex as that would be given today’s technology, while running a maze, to determine which frequencies alter their memories.
There is another important reason to consider the “K-Alzheimer’s Theory”: how it affects other disorders … and I’m not even talking about the obvious ones like schizophrenia or narcolepsy. What about kids that become massively aggressive and there is little causality to link their behaviors; or criminals who have never done anything wrong before and suddenly “flip” like a switch? There could be significant links to emi and other disorders. Weight gain or even gender identity issues (in a country where this is becoming a rapidly growing phenomenon), where the hypothalamus may be operating at specific wavelengths that are being affected by emi may be one such example. An evaluation of different low to high-frequency transmission rates in connection with emf radiation and how people live their daily lives could reveal A LOT! Things like vaccinations with heavy doses of heavy metals could be a problem as well, but if this theory does offer solutions to realign and repair neurological components, then we can even overcome those obstacles.
Now, for the final and biggest concern that comes with this theory: evolution. How can the human body adapt to a constant barrage of artificial emf radiation and yet, not slow down the functions of the human brain in order to survive. Technically, the only viable solution is to become more and more averse to technology. Unfortunately, in a world that continues to push technology, people would rather suffer the consequences than surrender their “stuff”. “Idiocracy” may be the future. Why not? If emf radiation disrupts memories, it can also disrupt childhood development, good/deviant thought processes, and learning. It’s only been about 150 years … and evolution takes time. Maybe 10 years, 50, or another 100 … may be all it takes to see a more wide-spread consequence.
But, wouldn’t it be nice if you could have your cake and eat it, too? Construct power lines with better shielding. Use absorptive carbon backing in phones and televisions. Sure, the costs go up for big corporations, but the CEO having to give up an extra $0.003 cents in their overseas sweat-shop to start making healthier people, better workers, and equally more active shoppers, won’t lose much in the way of quality of paint on their new Mercedes. Yeah … corporations … *sigh*
In a world taking away your identity, parenting, family authority, and telling you how to think, feel, and act, gauging your every move, and now the possibility that you are hurting, suffering, confused, or having every-day small issues that you have to keep adapting to (albeit building up) simply because we need to change 200 year old technology … wouldn’t it be nice to see the change in our lifetime?
At least, this way, you would remember it!
If you found this interesting, pass it along.
