This is actually the past. In the present, you used a time machine to come back to this point in time and correct a mistake you did. Unfortunately, your memory of events from this point to the present was erased in the process.

Until yesterday there was little argument about the holder of this coveted title: at 162cm, or a shade over 5ft 3in, Kim Jong-il, supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, general secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea and Great Leader of the People’s Democratic Republic of North Korea, stood head and shoulders below the rest of the field. The only other man in with a shout, according to the list at shortsupport.org, was Nicolas Sarkozy, president of France, who stands 168cm, or just over 5ft 5in tall. This may make him about 4in shorter than Mrs Sarkozy, but is unlikely to give Kim many sleepless nights.

The election of Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev as president of Russia, however, has upset things. For, contrary to the impression given by a campaign poster that shows him standing shoulder-to-shoulder with his mentor Vladimir Putin, Medvedev also measures 162cm from top to toe – a figure that puts him very much in contention. (For the record, Putin is fully 8cm taller; Medvedev’s minders make sure he is photographed from a low angle, and advise him to take a step forward when he’s in a group.)

THE QUANTUM MECHANICAL BRAIN & CREATIVITY

THE QUANTUM MECHANICAL BRAIN & CREATIVITY
 
We create our reality moment to moment. Noted physicists and mathematicians, as well as psychiatrists and neurophysiologists, are now supporting this opinion. Quantum mechanics supports the theory that personal creativity plays an essential role in our perception of the what we call reality.
 
MECHANICS OF NEURONAL FIRING
When a perception of any kind takes place, an electrical impulse is sent from the senses to appropriate neurons in the brain. This impulse is carried along the axon out to the dendrites. Between each of the billions of dendrite connections within our brains there are little gaps. These gaps, called synapses, are microscopic in size. Communication takes place between these synapses through the use of neurotransmitters.
 
A Neuron Firing
 
Quantum physics has determined that wave patterns are the essential building blocks of the brain’s electrochemical neurotransmitters. It is at the synapse that quantum wave patterns are transformed into neurotransmitters. Through this neuronal synaptic firing the translated wave frequencies are made coherent. These coherent frequencies are then transferred from dendrite to dendrite to the appropriate areas of the brain. Psychologist William Greenough conducted studies on rats in isolation as well as in stimulating environments. Upon examining their brains he discovered that the rats in the stimulated environment revealed, “that neurons grew larger dendrites with more synapses in response to complex experience.” It could be concluded, therefore, that a stimulated brain is able to process more information because it is richer in synaptic connectivity.

WE CANNOT PERCEIVE WHAT WE CANNOT CONCEIVE
We can only perceive, or literally see, what we can conceive of. We must have neuronal firing in our brains, whether it be in the imaginable state or actual perceptual state, for us to register an object as a reality. Joseph Chilton Pearce’s book “The Crack in the Cosmic Egg” purports and shows many examples that we can only perceive what we can conceive of. When Magellan’s fleet sailed around the tip of South America he stopped at a placed called Tierra del Fuego. Coming ashore he met some local natives who had come out to see the strange visitors. The ship’s historian documented that when Magellan came ashore the natives asked him how he had arrived. Magellan pointed out to his fully rigged sailing ships at anchor off the coast. None of the natives could see the ships. Because they had never seen ships before they had no reference point for them in their brains, and could literally not see them with their eyes. Therefore, it is to our advantage to expose our brains to varied stimulus so that the proper neuronal connections are forged. In this way we expand and enrich our ability to experience more of our environment in a meaningful way.
 
CODED WAVE INFORMATION
The brain translates consciousness, as coded wave patterns, into the coherent state we call mind. How does the brain form reality from these wave/particles, or interference pattern codes? Deepak Chopra in “Quantum Healing” gives us an example of the difference between interference patterns and a cohesive image. He says, “A good image for this would be a pianist playing a Chopin etude. Where is the music? You can find it at many levels – in the vibrating strings, the trip of the hammers, the fingers striking the keys, the black marks on the paper, or the nerve impulses produced in the player’s brain. But all of these are just codes; the reality of music is the shimmering, beautiful, invisible form that haunts our memories without ever being present in the physical world.” This is similar to a computer that translates electric impulses of on and off signals. These impulses are translated into bits, the bits into bytes and the bytes into the patterns of language that produce a program. A stimulated brain is richer in synaptic potential, thus able to process more code. It is more like having a 32 bit Pentium as opposed to an 8 bit 286. Not only is the quantity of information processing greater, but with the capability of more sophisticated programming, or wave form transformation, the quality is also greater.
 
 
HOLOGRAPHIC MODEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Neurophysiologist, Karl Pribram has done extensive work to prove that the brain acts holographically to produce our experience of reality. Again, the brain is a transducer of interference wave patterns. It turns these wave frequencies into electrical and chemical patterns. A hologram is produced when a laser beam is split, bounced off of an object, and then reflected from a mirror onto a photographic plate. Another laser beam directed at the holographic plate produces a three dimensional hologram.
