    What a fabulous discussion. Deserves a Consciousness hive to start collating these thoughts. We are really great at using science to understand matter, but at least so far, we are busy disputing that human energetics exist rather than finding them to be the most fascinating question ever.

    #9 #11 #12 Haha...We have a special "air conditioned" room for all of your scientist friends Gerald:-) There is a story behind the "Y". Perhaps I will write that one someday too...Thanks for the inspiration! That is the beauty of nature...apologies are not necessary;-)

    @Cyndi wilkins I did it... It was the mystery of the "y" --pun also not intended --yet somehow relevant ✨💫 !

    #7 I agree, believe it or not (I'm just cranky and it's probably coming through, having seen the wonder of nature...destroy most of my ...everything; sorry

    #3 @Cindi Wilkins; sorry for the typo; I thought we were following but it didn't tag...so my innacurate phone keyboard poke stuck...

    #3 @Cindi Watkins Ha! They intersect with me all the time! I don't think knowing a piece of the "puzzle which we will never fully know" negates that; my only point was that there is a precedent for this particular phenomenon in cellular signaling (and not one I would recommend); that was all I was commenting on; all my science colleagues think I'm permanently detached from the physical plane...and at the very least I should "eat something once in a while and get a haircut" ;-)

    #7 Excellent and eloquently written. We are on the same wave length here @Cyndi wilkins - no pun intended!

    #6 I agree wholeheartedly with that statement @Irene Hackett...Conventional science relies so heavily on an "evidence based" system that it ignores the subtle nature of our energetic system and how it contributes to the manifestation of physiological symptoms within the physical organism. The brain is just the physical conduit through which the instructions of the mind or "consciousness" is played out. It is consciousness itself that is at the root of all manifestation. It is not philosophy, it is physics. Many of the writings of Ali @Ali Anani echo the existence of this universal intelligence as well...I'm curious his thoughts on this...Thanks for your thoughts on this Irene...Perhaps we can build a bridge here;-)

    Interesting stuff. To me, it points to the reality that we are very far from building conclusive 'evidence' of how the brain works. It may be beyond what science can 'prove'. Non material realities may sound like something "mystical", but science is leading down that vein, slowly but surely. Thank you @Cyndi wilkins for tagging me. Cool phrase :"the effervescence of this universal ocean of intelligence"!

    #2 Well, I am no scientist dear Gerald...so I guess the "mystical" is my personal path to trying to understand such complicated matters. Perhaps one day the two will intersect;-)

    #1 @Cindi Wilkins #1 They are still following the "rules" of resting/action potential IPSP/EPSP dynamics ( ion channel, either direct or "second messenger cascade/G protein modulated") in terms of depolarization threshold dependent transmitter release; but it is happening despite synaptic vesicles damage that would seem to preclude this; but we shouldn't rush to the mystical here; remember amphetamine can do this to..."trick" dopaminergic synaptic vesicles into packaging it instead of dopamine, and then allowing free dopamine to escape through the DAT
    (using it as an escape hatch.
    We usually don't think of amphetamine in mystical terms), unless under its influence, ✨💫👑

    "Neurons appear to retain some residual communication even with a key piece of their communication apparatus missing.” This is an interesting piece @Gerald Hecht. It reminds me of a post by @Irene Hackett on "Unified field." I like to view these "neurotransmitter-loaded bubbles" as the effervescence of this universal ocean of intelligence. Even though there is a physical disconnect, you cannot sever the ties to the frequencies of vibration;-)
