Magnetic Reconnection and Humans

Somebody asked me if humans can predict future events and below is my answer.

I believe that this sort of prediction is possible, but the information is so spotty it is virtually impossible to make any consistent use of it. I have a theory on this topic.

My hypothesis is based on how I theorize remote viewing (including the future) possibly works; if remote viewing works at all. There is nothing here more than "possible" science in my theory.

Every living thing and many non living things produce a magnetic field. Magnetic fields are very odd things. Using super conductors’ magnetic fields can even defy gravity. There is one aspect of magnetic fields that may explain remote viewing.

Astrophysicists talk about “Magnetic Reconnection” in regards to suns and how they operate and how their multiple magnetic fields interact. This is described as;

Magnetic reconnection is the process whereby magnetic field lines from different magnetic domains are spliced to one another, changing their patterns of connectivity with respect to the sources. It is a violation of an approximate conservation law in plasma physics, and can concentrate mechanical or magnetic energy in both space and time.

I postulate that what is true at the solar level trickles down to all magnetic fields regardless of how small they are. The future you and the current you are both producing magnetic fields in their respective brains and the above process may allow them to magnetically reconnect. But it is not a constant fixed connection. The magnetic fields are always shifting and there are other people’s magnetic fields to contend with, and your brain is focused on the magnetic fields of the here and now. We are basically drowning in magnetic field data and ignoring most of it.

We all know of athletes, soldiers and the heroes of the world who have fantastic instincts and they almost move in anticipation of their opponent’s next move. Could this be the human brain reading magnetic fields in a very basic, productive way in the current time frame? This would be no different than sharpening one’s eyes or perking up one's ears. If the opponent is producing a magnetic field in their brain, possibly another brain can pick up on those thoughts or intent at a rudimentary level, then it can anticipate them. Think intuition, mother’s instincts, and great fighters; all seemingly can anticipate events,

How do we do it? I will reply to that with a question… What happens when you find yourself in a dangerous situation, or you’re feeling deep emotion? Your hair will stand on end, or you will get goose bumps. I theorize that this behavior has multiple reasons for happening.

A secondary reason is that thousands of years ago when man was covered with hair it would make you look bigger to an opponent. However, I feel this is only a secondary benefit.

Every hair follicle on the human body is a dipole magnet. These magnets could act as antennae and just as you can sharpen your vision, and perk up your ears, your brain can raise the dipole antennae of hair follicles to scan magnetic fields around you and try to read the intent/information found in those magnetic fields that swirl around us. By reading them you can pick up information. Possibly the fact another soldier has you in their cross hairs, the next punch the fighter is thinking about throwing, the event that is about to happen that will result in an injured child’s future which can be prevented, an animal lurking nearby which cannot be seen or heard, but sensed through magnetic reconnection.

But there is so much information it is difficult for the brain to pick out what is important. Just like you miss things with your eyes, ears and sense of touch, there is too much data at times or we are preoccupied. But put yourself into the forest late at night with limited visual input and your skin may crawl with goose bumps scanning for dangerous intent.

To demonstrate how much energy could be concentrated by the human brain through magnetic reconnection I point towards cowlicks and hair sworls. How you think may affect the material world and here is my anecdotal evidence (this is simply a handy example);

Different thoughts, different magnetic fields in the brain and the mechanical energy of magnetic reconnection steers hair grain, sworls and cowlick formation.

The problem in reading magnetic fields is that he brain has to sift through so many inputs it has to ignore many of them. You know how they say humans use only 10% of their brains; I theorize that other 90% of the brain is working with data we cannot see, hear or touch, and it is doing it on the instinctual level unconsciously.

We do not have the necessary tools yet to test this theory, but they are on the horizon (MEG).

That is my theory. Yes humans can read future events but the human brain is primarily focused on the here and now, and this “reading” happens at an instinctual and unconscious level which is difficult for the conscious mind to focus on (it has to filter it out or it would be overwhelmed).

How could my theory of magnetic reconnection happening within human brains and external magnetic fields of other living and non living objects be tested?

I do not think it can be tested yet, but there is technology on the horizon. It is called MEG

Magnetoencephalography (MEG) is an imaging technique used to measure the magnetic fields produced by electrical activity in the brain via extremely sensitive devices such as superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs). These measurements are commonly used in both research and clinical settings. There are many uses for the MEG, including assisting surgeons in localizing pathology, assisting researchers in determining the function of various parts of the brain, neurofeedback, and others.

There are only a handful of modern MEGs on the entire planet. Last I knew there were only two in the United States (one at Stanford Univ.).

The problem that needs to be overcome in testing my theory with brain magnetic reconnection only begins at the “dipole” level. Remember that every hair arises from a hair follicle with a dipole magnetic field;

What are MEG limitations?
A major technical problem
associated with MEG is that the localization of sources of electrical activity
within the brain from magnetic measurement outside the head is complicated and
does not have a unique solution. This is known as the ill-posed inverse
problem, and is itself the subject of research. However, as indicated
above, feasible solutions can be often obtained by using relatively simple

Due to the increased distance to sources and the almost
symmetry of the head it is difficult to provide reliable
information about subcortical sources of brain activity.

Because the neuromagnetic signals are very weak compared to the magnetic
fields in a normal laboratory environment, the MEG measurements have to be taken
in a magnetically shielded room with two or more layers using a sensitive SQUID

So although my theory may sound insane now, science is making advances in solving the questions.

The average human has 5,000,000 million hairs on their bodies and on average 100,000 of them are concentrated on the head. Think of those as antennas. That is a lot of dipole antennas to collect information from and sort through and the MEG has far fewer dipoles it can track and we do not know which dipoles to follow. The number of dipoles in the human brain is fantastically large and it is fed data by millions of antennas.

(note; Blondes have the most head hair on average 140,000 and red heads have the fewest 80,000)

So I am not totally out there on the lunatic fringe. Think of me as Newton telling the church that the earth is not the center of the universe, before everybody else caught on. My success as a business analyst was picking up on trends within data, this is just another trend I stumbled upon and it needs testing.

If you want to see a quick blurb on MEG go here;

This machine has 275 magnetic sensors. If I am correct the average human has 5,000,000 sensors to detect magnetic fields and try to “read” them.

I love tangents. I go off on a lot of mental tangents and it is amazing the places they will take you.

I just sent you a series of emails on the human brain and my theories on magnetic reconnection and reading our environment. While doing this my mind went on a related tangent.

While condensing my thoughts into an email for you on magnetic reconnection and the human brain, another part of my brain was asking a question and in looking into that question there is a symmetry with my emails to you.

My mind wanted to know how male pattern baldness would work in conjunction with my idea of humans reading magnetic fields using the dipole magnets of hair follicles. The dipole magnetic affect is absent from the hair follicles in bald areas found in male pattern baldness cases. My mind begged the question “Don’t bald men need dipole antennas to survive, just like they need eyes and ears?”.

Darn it, there is a simple answer… You just have to pull all the fine threads together.
“Altered androgen the most common cause of hirsutism[excessive hair growth] and it appears to be the result of anincreased conversion in the skin of testosterone to DHT.” (“Evaluationof Excessive Hair Growth (Hirsutism)” by Frederick R. Jelovsek MD:

Altered androgen metabolism is also related to male pattern baldness.

My theory… Men with male pattern baldness do not have less hair; they just have less hair on their heads and more hair on their bodies. This would indicate two things to me 1) the brain only needs so many dipole antennae, 2) Antennae are placed where they are needed the most.

Why would I think that?

What do you know about testosterone and behavior? It is easy… Testosterone makes males more aggressive. Where would an animal with aggressive tendencies focus antennae to pick up information on an opponent? Primarily the front side of the face and body, less so the back side, but you would not need the antennae to face upwards.

Men with male pattern baldness have higher testosterone levels which become apparent after puberty and the body adjusts the placement of antennae to be useful to the more aggressive male. In the wild an aggressive male would face a lot more opponents.

Neat, eh? Tangents are fun and if you go on enough of them you can find the bread crumb trail that leads to the paved road.
