Leonard is driving to work along a familiar route. He is in the right lane, and sees a traffic light at a modest distance ahead just turning yellow, then red, and cars ahead of him are braking. While he is still moments away from reaching the light, it is obvious that he will have to stop at the light, so he takes his foot off of the accelerator and coasts. Jacob, driving not far from Leonard’s bumper, is in a hurry to get to his job. Jacob is always in a hurry, so this is nothing new. Rather than also slowing down, Jacob veers into the left lane and floors the accelerator so that he can zip around Leonard’s car, and once he passes Leonard, pulls right in front of him because he wants to turn right at the next light and needs the right lane. Of course he has to brake aggressively because he is now getting rather close to the red light and is moving at a high rate of speed. Leonard also now has to brake aggressively, as he is dealing with a rapidly decelerating car right in front of his. But he takes it in stride, although he is happy that Jacob is turning and won’t be driving near him any more. Both come to the red light and sit there for another minute while the signal completes its predictable cycle.
This scenario happens frequently, yet traffic proceeds and everybody, generally, gets to work. Drivers react to each other’s differing driving styles, and both laid back drivers and anxious ones get to their destinations essentially at the same time each day. The whole mosaic of traffic is so predictable that both drivers’ phone apps show remarkably accurate ETAs when they will arrive at work, regardless of their driving patterns.The drivers in this traffic system all think differently, have different driving habits, and are in varying states of calm or anxiety. Some are focused on their driving, some are paying more attention to their phone texts, and some are deep in thought and driving subconsciously. Yet on most days and most of the time, the system works and drivers arrive at their destinations.
Traffic is a simple example of something much more complex: life. We live in our own thoughts, follow our own desires, yet interact constantly with our environment and other people in a constantly swirling mosaic of life. If we fly in a plane and look down at all the activity of life below us, we see patterns emerge, yet we are unable to precisely predict what is going to happen next on the ground. It is fascinating to watch, yet constantly novel because we don’t know all the millions of interactions that are happening and therefore don’t exactly know what is going to happen next.
Even one mind — yours — is so complex that you can’t fully understand it. You may not even know how you are going to react in the next moment: some irritating noise might invade your thoughts and suddenly you are angry and pound your fist on your desk. Or someone might get angry with you, yet you take it very calmly and it hardly bothers you. Each reaction surprises you — why did you react that way? When we try to study the brain and how it works, it is like studying the standard sequence of traffic lights and the typical reactions of average drivers: we get a good idea of what traffic will do next or how your brain may react to certain stimuli, but there are so many unpredictable factors that we can’t know precisely.
Science needs “models” to predict future events. The models are theories that can’t be proven directly, but which fit the repeatedly observed sequences that are observed. Every time you drop a ball, it drops to the floor, so there must be some force we call “gravity” pulling downward on the ball. The theory of gravity could actually be wrong for all we know, but the model fits so we run with it. That’s all we can do — form the model that fits the best and use it to predict future events. What we see constantly in science is when we build one model, it provokes a number of new questions: why should this attractive force of gravity exist, and why does it require so much mass before we even see gravitational effects?
It’s all relative…
Einstein gave us the theory of general relativity. That theory has been verified as a valid model with decades of experiments that show it to be true. That theory models gravity and explains it as a “warping of space-time”; in other words, a force that is impacting our visible three spatial dimensions and the forth dimension known as time. Yet, that verified theory doesn’t explain everything that we observe happening with matter in the universe, particularly at the very small level. Another model called quantum mechanics works for the micro-universe, and it states that the pieces of an atom act in ways similar to both a physical particle and a waveform. This theory is essentially proven as well. But there is a problem when both theories are considered together: they require opposing rules to exist simultaneously in our three dimensions plus time. A third model called “string theory” was developed to bring those other theories together: it says not only that the two theories can coexist, but that they must both be true at the same time, but in ten or more dimensions. The implication is that those ten or more actually exist, and without them, our observed universe is an impossibility. We are existing in many more than three dimensions, yet our observation is confined to three. Those other dimensions are a part of our very existence, yet we are unaware of them. Science and mathematics have essentially proven that there is more to us, to our very being, than we can ever observe, thus saying that some things are literally unknowable now or ever while we are confined to three dimensions and a one-way time vector.
Where does that leave us? Where we’ve always been: we can observe things happening without knowing exactly how they happen. When we consider our most precious earthly possession — our health — we can observe what works even though sometimes we don’t know precisely why it works. And the pinnacle of our health, which is our mind/brain health, is the hardest to fathom because it is so complex. As science delves deeper into the brain and how it functions, so that it can tell us how to make our brains function better, it keeps finding deeper and more perplexing mysteries. Just as general relativity and string theory have proposed new and perplexing issues about the existence of matter in the universe, so new discoveries about the brain have made our understanding of its function even more mysterious. Yet, they have opened the door to better therapies, because the models are getting better and better as research progresses.
The first model of the brain that has served us well for decades has been the neural connection model. Individual neuron cells in the brain connect to each other in ways that form a network, and that network allows it to form thoughts, memories, and emotions. Unfortunately the model is insufficient to fully explain those functions. So we try another model based upon brainwaves. It seems that brainwaves aren’t just an interesting byproduct of neural network activity, but they are a means of communication within that network as well. Perhaps this is a bit like your plugging in your computer to your router to connect to the Web, but you can also connect via Wi-Fi; except that you usually use one or the other, where as the brain appears to be using both forms of communication in its network. We’ve used brainwaves as a “window” to the brain for some time now, but recently we realize that waves generated with therapies can interact with those brainwaves in potentially positive and helpful ways.
Published in Science Advances, a new study combines waveform theory, complex mathematical models, and observed brain responses to form a more unified view of brain function. We know a lot about point-to-point circuits, of which we use electronic versions in our computers, and this is certainly part of how the brain functions. But researchers in this study considered that brainwaves are also communication. EMF waveforms have very interesting characteristics that we see with sound, radio, or light waves — when waves touch each other they meld in their areas of contact, interfering with or enhancing each other and generating new waveforms from their interaction. This forms a kaleidoscope of waveform interaction. The researchers verified that the study participants saw various portions of special visual patterns differently in a manner that was predicted by the calculated waveform interference from their brainwaves. The brainwaves were communicating, and the waveform interference patterns that occurred changed the sensory cell communication, which changed the visual perception accordingly. Researchers could predict the changes in visual perception by calculating what waveform enhancements and cancellations were occurring. Their model worked, suggesting that brainwaves are an important part of intra-brain communication.
Brainwaves can jump over many cells to communicate even with other portions of the brain, but point-to-point connection is vital for direct communication between neurons. This direct communication is lightning-fast, and allows many neurons to act almost in unison. Electro-chemical signals pass along special connection cells called axons, covered by a thin insulating layer called myelin which speeds up electrical transmission by preventing “leakage” of electrical signals, somewhat like coaxial cable does with high bandwidth signals in electronic devices. Although requiring a direct connection to each neuron affected, the speed of the communication makes a very fast network. Unless, of course, this network is damaged. Myelin, for instance, is quite susceptible to auto-immune system damage, as it is very delicate.
Stress is especially dangerous because it causes changes in the brain to try to cope with the stress, which over a prolonged period can lead to long-term changes in brain communication. Published in the Journal of Neuroscience, researchers at the LSU Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA showed in animal studies that stress actually changes the structure and function of neurons and astrocytes, which are vital for clearance of neurotransmitters during neuron communication. With animal studies they determined that introduction of emotional stress caused reduction of certain protein synthesis that then led to reduction in synaptic communication.
That which is invisible
The brain has at least two ways of communicating. Point-to-point would be slow and tedious were it not for a high speed communication network that is carefully designed to pass signals at near light speed. Brainwaves are the ‘Wi-Fi” communication, broadcasting information across many cells at once, also at near light speed. Thoughts result in physical biochemical changes in neurons, and we experience as our brains compare the immediate past, held in memory, with the present sensory input and notes the changes between the two. The brain is a delicate, complex tool that provides the mechanism for the “real you” to operate in these three dimensions across time, but there are aspects of this process that remain a mystery and may require other dimensions to fully explain. Here trust steps in, because while science can show mathematical evidence of their existence, it cannot explore those dimensions. Science cannot deal with the spirit or what is not visible in our standard dimensions. Science is effectively giving the green light to trust in something or some one that is not seen, because it recognizes other dimensions where it cannot measure anything. Trust in an alternate dimension is vital in becoming who you are — let “science” talk you into accepting a dimension that has always been and will always be, which is actually very close to you.
Brain is in control
Without brain health, total body health is impossible, because the brain controls so many bodily functions. Since the brain is a physical organ, it needs what the rest of your body needs: nutrition, oxygen, water, waste removal, and rest. But because it is highly inter-connected and responsive, it is also very sensitive, especially to stress. Understanding how the brain communicates gives us remarkable therapies that can look at brainwaves and electrical signals to see where it is out of balance, and actively work towards restoring that balance.
Returning to the traffic analogy: if any driver is out of control, the system jams up. If Leonard was inattentive when Jacob jumped in front of him, there could have been an accident. Or if Jacob had cut too close or jumped into the other lane without looking, there would have been a collision. Then the whole area around the traffic light would have jammed. A small mistake and the system would be impaired. Likewise, your brain needs to be operating in balance. If something is amiss, it will send signals to the rest of your body which also throw it out of balance.
Brain health isn’t the only key to good health, but without it, you can’t achieve good health.
Dr. Nemec’s Review
The mind, brain and body work on two levels simultaneously. They work on a particle level as we saw with neurons communicating to each other individually, and in unison via electro-chemicals being secreted at the synapsis of the neurons. This was always the standard accepted model which we will call the “particle model” in quantum mechanics. But there is another communicating pathway with far-reaching effects and over 1000 times the power of communication, almost at the speed of light. We will call this the “wave model.” Communication happens both ways in the brain: it happens neuron to neuron, and it also happens simultaneously through waves of electromagnetic energy that touch not only brain cells all at the same time, but actually all the cells of the body at the same time — this is the power of the wave versus the particle.
Look at a school of fish for example: as individual cells they all maintain proper spacing between each other — they do not crowd or bump into each other, there are no collisions in the school of fish. But these fish communicate in another way you can visually see it when something comes towards the school: they move in a wave-like pattern instantly. It is almost like the wave of electromagnetic energy touched all of them at the same time and they all moved instantaneously at the same moment. This is the power of wave versus particle communication. So when we look at mind-brain-body health we must pay extreme attention to the waves that the brain generates, because these waves instantly effect not only the entire brain but the entire body and all the trillions of cells at the same time. This communication line is beyond our comprehension, it is almost on the verge of being in another dimension beyond space and time.
This is why we’ve dedicated the last 40 years in developing our protocol, Nemec New Medicine®, to measure these brain electromagnetic waves with 3-D brain imaging and brain mapping to assess subconscious and conscious stress stored in the brain. Remember, if the brain is sending a wave of energy that is communicating with all the cells of the body at one time you need to make sure these waves are waves of rest, not waves of stress. We also developed a technique in our protocol to release stress programs stored in the brain affecting every cell in the body. If you do not release the stored subconscious and conscious stress programs in the body then it is constantly in a stress mode which will trigger inflammation and all disease including cancer, heart disease, auto immune disease, neurological disease, gastrointestinal disease — just to name a few — and culminating in the decrease of longevity as you age prematurely. That is why the basis of our complete program is to remove the stress in the mind-brain Interface which then removes stress in the body at the cellular level. This is so foundational that nobody can heal from any disease, any symptom unless you completely remove these mental-emotional stress programs. This is 90% of your Health picture because these programs are playing constantly. So when we have a patient come in that was just diagnosed with breast cancer who doesn’t understand how it happened — they eat well, they exercise, they take supplements, they’re happy, they have a great spouse, great kids, they are comfortable financially — how can they get cancer? From subconscious stress programs stored on the hard drive of the brain communicating a wave of stress electromagnetically to every cell in the body 24/7/365. That’s how they developed cancer and that’s the first step in us helping them restore their health. With our Nemec New Medicine® de-stress protocol we not only balance the body at the cellular level, but we balance the mind and the brain at the source, and test and retest until the brain waves are balanced and the bio-chemistry is balanced. This is the only way to complete health: you must affect the mind-brain-body complex with a wave model, not just a particle model. Medicine looks at everything as an effect but doesn’t really get to the underlying cause and is still using a particle model for their treatment protocol. Quantum mechanics showed us a different way — a much more powerful way. And that is why this is most important in our Nemec New Medicine® protocol of treatment.
Science shows us that there is an unseen world, an unseen dimension that must be there because it cannot explain the outcomes of certain observations and experiments.
Do you know what that dimension is?
Do you know who or what is in that dimension?
Have you ever experienced that dimension?
