Microtubules are so fucking awesome, especially when you can visualize them with fluorescence and a tagged anti-body, or in the case of my research, GFP tagged Tau protein.
IDK, maybe there is some legitimacy here, not familiar enough with the theory to lend any real weight tho. But I do know that neurons heavily rely on Neurofilaments for action potential transmission. Not just in a structural way, as neurofilaments have some undefined role in the propagation and continuation of the signal. Could they be involved somehow?
>consciousness ITSELF is literally an essential ingredient in a theory of physicsHonestly I agree with this statement wholeheartedly, but from a more philosophical standpoint than a hard-science one. But related to multiverse theory in physics:
I believe that up until the advent of consciousness, I believe that our universe could have only existed in 1 state, as the state of every bit of matter was determined by adherence of those molecules, atoms, subatomic particles, waves, or whatever else, to the laws of physics. There could be no change or deviation from this because they had only the interaction of the 4 fundamental forces to dictate what they did or where they went. However, consciousness generates choice, and from choice, we have the ability to manipulate things, while of course still abiding by physical laws and constants. But the idea of manipulation, intervention, and changing of systems that we create from our consciousness and carry out through our bodies generates the splits in time-lines that cause the arising of alternate universes. Consider a ball on the ground. Left there, never to be touched, it can only go wherever physical forces and thermodynamics dictates it can go. However, by intervening on that system and say picking the ball up or moving it, you alter the system and place the ball somewhere else. If you never touch it, it is in state A, if you intervene, state B. Both theoretically can exist however without Human intervention would state B have ever arisen?
And as human technology and knowledge increases, I personally believe the the gap between these deviations in time-lines gets greater, as we gain a greater ability to rea…
