Here are interesting scientific facts about the Human brain:
- The human brain weighs 3 pounds
- It comprises 60% of fat and is one of the fattest organs in the human body
- Human brain has the capacity to generate approximately 23 watts of power when awake.
- Of the total blood and oxygen that is produced in our body, the brain gets 20% of it.
- When the blood supply to the brain stops, it is almost after 8-10 seconds that the brain starts losing the consciousness.
- The brain is capable of surviving for 5 to 6 minutes only if it doesn’t get oxygen after which it dies.
- The blood vessels that are present in the brain are almost 100,000 miles in length.
- There are 100 billion neurons present in the brain.
- In early pregnancy, the neurons develop at an alarming rate of 250,000 per minute.
- As we grow older, we are unable to remember new things. According to the researchers in the US it is because the brain is unable to filter and remove old memories which prevent it from absorbing new ideas.
But what about the consciousness? How do neurons transmit consciousness?
Scientists have in more recent times found that neurons in the brains of mammalians were capable of producing photons of light which are also called biophotons. These biophotons ranging from between 200 and 1,300 nanometers.
It is believed that neurons in our brains may be capable of communicating through light. Through several experiments on rat brains, it was found that they pass only one biophoton per neuron a minute. Human brains would in this sense pass billions per second. It would make sense that the more light one produces the more conscious they are. There seems to be a lot more to light in general than we realize.
Does this suggest that consciousness perhaps resides outside our brain?
Quantum entanglement theory states that 2 entangled photons react if one of the photons is affected no matter where the other photon is in The Universe without any delay.
Perhaps, The Universe’s photons can act as portals that enable communication between few worlds. What if our spirit and consciousness communicate with our bodies through these biophotons? The more light we produce, the more we awaken and embody the wholeness of our consciousness – this is what is called light quotient.
In the next post, we will discuss pineal gland and how it also acts as transmitter and receiver for consciousness.
