Scientists Find ‘Evidence’ of a Multidimensional Universe inside Our Brain

Scientists Find ‘Evidence’ of a Multidimensional Universe inside Our Brain
Could There Be More To Us Than We Know?

With the help of mathematical methods of algebraic topology, scientists have found structures and multidimensional geometric spaces in human brain networks. A new study has demonstrated that the human brain contains structures and shapes that may have up to eleven dimensions.

Experts have previously stated how human brains are estimated to contain a staggering 86 billion neurons, including several connections from each cell, expanding and connecting in every possible direction, producing a super vast cellular network that somehow makes us capable of thought and consciousness, reports an article at Science Alert.

Now, an international team of researchers gathered around the Blue Brain Project has obtained results that have never before been observed in the world of neuroscience, according to the research written in the journal Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience.

Mathematics Reveals the Unimaginable

Scientists managed to locate structures in the human brain that display a multi-dimensional universe, revealing the very first geometric design of neural connections and how they react to different stimuli.

Researchers utilized in-depth computer modeling methods in order to understand how human brain cells can adapt themselves in order to carry out extremely complex tasks.

Scientists made use of mathematical models of algebraic topology in order to describe different structures and multidimensional geometric spaces in human brain networks.

In the study, scientists note how structures are formed at the same time that they are interlaced in a ‘unity’ that creates a precise geometric structure.

Henry Markram, a neuroscientist and the director of Blue Brain Project in Lausanne, Switzerland said:

We have found a world that we had never imagined before. We’ve uncovered tens of millions of these objects, even in a small speck of the brain, up through seven dimensions. However, in some networks, we even discovered structures with up to eleven dimensions.

Scientists discover amazing hidden patterns of brain activity.

Multi-Dimensional Brains

As explained by scientists, every single neuron within our brain can interconnect to an adjacent one in a particular way, in order to form an object with intricate connections. Interestingly, the more neurons join in with the clique; the more dimensions that are joined to the object.

With the help of algebraic topology, experts were able to model the structure within a virtual brain, produced with the aid of computers. Later, experts carried out tests on real brain tissue to verify the results.,

After researchers included stimulus into the virtual brain tissue, they found that cliques of progressively higher dimensions compiled. They discovered that in between these cliques were empty spaces, like holes or cavities.

Ran Levi from Aberdeen University, who worked on the paper, said:

The presence of high-dimensional cavities when the brain is processing information indicates that the neurons in the network respond to stimuli in a remarkably organized manner.

It is as if the brain responds to an inducement by constructing then smashing a tower of multi-dimensional blocks, starting with rods (1D), planks (2D), cubes (3D), and then more complex geometries with 4D, 5D, etc. The sequence of activity throughout the brain resembles a multi-dimensional sandcastle that has the ability to materialize out of the sand and then disintegrate.

Furthermore, experts note that while shapes that are three-dimensional in nature have height, width, and depth, the objects uncovered by experts in the study don’t exist in more than three dimensions in our reality. However, the mathematics used to define them may contain as many as five, six, seven or up to eleven dimensions.

Professor Cees van Leeuwen, from KU Leuven, Belgium, said:

Outside of physics, high-dimensional spaces are commonly used to represent complex data structures or conditions of systems. For example, the state of a dynamical system in state space… The space is simply the combination of all the degrees of freedom the system has, and its state represents the values these degrees of freedom are actually assuming.

This research was published in Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience.

Oooh yes we are universal minds in a free will composed body operating systems. We create our own reality just took on a whole new meaning!! This is brilliant!!!

I need help understanding something. I have dreamed since I was a kid that I have held a giant mass but very light still in the palm of my hand. This mass was multidimensional. I am now amazed by these discoveries. I have had several dreams about these facts since childhood and I can not explain why.

I thought I was the only one with the theory that each cell of our brains equal a universe, and that each of these universes have people in it who also have brains that are multiverses with people in them who have brains that are multiverses with people and on and on and on!!

The mind is brilliant, has cognitive talents, and enables consciousness, perception, thinking, judgment, and memory. It’s the pilot of our vessel where trillion of tiny cells live but, like all human beings, we take our mind for granted. And as human beings we sometimes use “poor judgment” to make cognizant decisions that are not ideal for our body’s physical and mental health. Most of us are not aware of our intelligent body or the complex functions that it goes through every day for a lifetime, but the destructive actions we carry out have a profound impact to our bodies’ organs as well as our mental health.

At the same time, if we look at the intire universe, wich we know only littel about, and can only se a littel fraction of, its structures remind me of wath just have been discovered. I would like to know ( woldent we all) where these structures ends. Scientists found out tha all people are conected. Studyes ( for eks. when the 9-11- 2001) shows that when big things happen, we all are allert in the moments before. Verry interesting new knoledge.

So basically our brains are universes with other people inside who have brains which are also universes with people inside who also have brains which are also universes with people inside who also have brains which are also universes with people inside. Nice
