Quantum entanglement in living organisms? The complexity of simple definitions.
Researchers managed to generate and study quantum entanglement in living organisms. In the study, scientists used green fluorescent proteins, which are responsible for bioluminescence and commonly used in biomedical research. The research team attempted to entangle the photons generated from the fluorescing molecules within the algae’s barrel-shaped protein structure by exposing them to spontaneous four-wave […]
Health. Disease. Blurry lines…
Our genome is made up of 20,000 genes, all of which may cause disease. At present, 4,141 genes have been identified as being responsible for genetic abnormalities, leaving around 16,000 genes with unknown implication in disease. Researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, — working in collaboration with scientists from Pakistan and the USA […]
Dead. But still alive. The fallacy of definitions. The wisdom of not knowing…
Brain activity was detected as much as 10 minutes after death. (1) Well, at least “death” by the current standards of what dead means. Our definitions have come back to bite us. We have rushed to define death. But we do not even know what life is. Look at that butterfly. It knows more than […]
Scientists put the Moon to work daily as a calibration source for space-based cameras that use the brightness and colors of sunlight reflecting off our planet to track weather patterns, trends in crop health, the locations of harmful algal blooms in oceans and much more. The information sent from Earth-facing imagers allows researchers to predict […]
Electricity and memory. Time and timelessness. [Questioning the obvious]
Electrical stimulation delivered when memory is predicted to fail can improve memory function in the human brain, a team of neuroscientists shows for the first time. That same stimulation generally becomes disruptive when electrical pulses arrive during periods of effective memory function. (1) We stimulate and see memory improving. We do thing and see results. […]
