New Experiment Reveals ‘DNA of the mind’: Mystery Of Human Intelligence Solved

LONDON, UK, 2017-Jul-19 — /EPR Network/ — A solution to the ‘hard problem’ of human consciousness has finally been found, explaining how our minds work. In his new book, ‘Nevermind: You, deconstructed’, British author R R Deehan provides a simple and testable answer to a question that has long puzzled scientists and philosophers:- how do our minds bootstrap their way to consciousness? According to R R Deehan, “The answer was right under our noses all along, and it’s incredibly obvious, once you know what to look for.”

Older theories, such as the idea that humans possess ‘souls’, or that our minds somehow result from quantum effects, have failed to solve the hard problem, usually because they can’t be tested. In ‘Nevermind: You, deconstructed’, R R Deehan offers a short series of easy thought experiments that anybody can perform from the comfort of their own armchair. These experiments lay bare the secrets of your own mind and allow you to witness firsthand exactly why there’s a ‘you’ hovering inside your head, and what it’s capable of.

DNA is a four-letter chemical alphabet from which all living things are built, but the mental equivalent is even simpler, consisting of just three components that combine in straightforward ways to produce every aspect of your mind. The implications for this discovery are immense, and include a workable blueprint for a truly self-aware artificial intelligence based on the human model, as well as new ways to look at all the other ‘Big Questions’, such as ‘which came first? Consciousness or the universe’? With such notables as Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk warning about the possible dangers of artificial intelligence, ‘Nevermind: You, deconstructed’ offers a way to ensure we don’t accidentally open a Pandora’s Box of uncontrollable technology that could cause our own extinction.

Cambridge Micelle Technology in Carocelle® Lycopene and Resveratrol anti-ageing and cardio-protective formula

Cambridge, England, 2017-Feb-14 — /EPR Network/ — Resveratrol and lycopene are the compounds known for anti-ageing and cardio-protective properties. Mediterranean diet based, among others, on consumption of big quantities of lycopene-rich vegetables coincides with a longer lifespan, lower incidence of CVDs and reduced occurrence of some forms of cancer among the population of Mediterranean region. High resveratrol consumption is considered a factor in “French Paradox”, where epidemiological data show low incidence of CVDs, despite high consumption of saturated fats. Consumers have enormous choice of food supplements including lycopene and resveratrol, but key information is often missing: what happens to the substance once consumed and how much of it is really absorbed?

Five Years After Iraq War’s Official End, a New York Community Is Still Healing

NEW YORK, NY, 2017-Jan-14 — /EPR Network/ — As the Iraq War’s official end in December 2011 marks its fifth anniversary, many questions remain on its fallouts. New York’s French-American community is one of them, as it remembers its blacklisting when France opted out of attacking Iraq.

Choosing diplomatic pressure rather than “shock and awe” ignited fury for many in New York. The call for anti-French boycotts resonated in tabloids as pictures of New Yorkers spilling wines in gutters vied with accusations of an ally’s betrayal and cowardice. Information can be found by searching for “New York’s anti-French boycotts and Iraq,” and “Freedom fries.”

How effective were the boycotts? “Very much so, even devastating,” says French consulate’s official physician and mental health coordinator at the time, Gérard Sunnen, MD, “the French-American community of New York was stunned by their virulence and persistence. Why, many wondered, did they materialize only in New York, in striking contrast to the rest of the country?”
