ABSTRACT We examine the hypothesis that consciousness is a manifestation of the electromagnetic field, finding supportive factors not previously considered. It is not likely that traditional electrophysiological signaling modes can be readily transmitted throughout the brain to properly enable this field because of electric field screening arising from the ubiquitous distribution of high dielectric lipid membranes, a problem that vanishes for low-frequency magnetic fields. Many reports over the… Expand

Topics from this paper

A human source for ELF magnetic perturbations
  • A. Liboff
  • Physics, Medicine
  • Electromagnetic biology and medicine
  • 2016
TLDR
It follows that humans may represent an additional, previously unrecognized source of weak (1–10 nT) ambient ELF magnetic fields, suggesting external interactions similar to the various ELf magnetic perturbations that are linked to homeostatic and endocrine-related physiological effects. Expand
Neural Circuits, Microtubule Processing, Brain’s Electromagnetic Field—Components of Self-Awareness
TLDR
The authors maintain that an effective comprehension of consciousness is important for health care professionals because its disorders are frequent medical symptoms in emergencies, during general anesthesia and in the course of cognitive disorders in elderly people. Expand
Consciousness in the Universe is Scale Invariant and Implies an Event Horizon of the Human Brain
TLDR
It is proposed that the supposed field-receptive workspace, in a mutual interaction with the whole nervous system, generates self-consciousness and is conceived as operating from a 4th spatial dimension (hyper-sphere) of space-time. Expand
The electromagnetic basis of social interactions
  • A. Liboff
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Electromagnetic biology and medicine
  • 2017
TLDR
The argument developed here not only is consistent with the notion of a magnetic sense in humans, but also provides a new approach to electromagnetic hypersensitivity, suggesting that it may simply result from sensory overload. Expand
A unifying theory of physics and biological information through consciousness
TLDR
A transdisciplinary theory that attempts, in a nonmathematical way, to reconcile some contemporary concepts of physics with a novel theory of the mind, to provide an intriguing explanation of how physics melds with ‘mind,’ thus laying the foundation for future explorations into how this theoretical framework of theMind reciprocates with other areas of science. Expand
Functional roles of three cues that provide nonsynaptic modes of communication in the brain: electromagnetic field, oxygen, and carbon dioxide.
TLDR
The new concept of "broadcasted neuroconnectomics" has been introduced, which transcends the current connectomics view of the brain, and focuses mainly on cues present in the environment and those produced by cells of the body, which "pervade" the brain and contribute to its dynamics. Expand
EEG Assessment of Consciousness Rebooting from Coma
The bi-dimensional arousal-awareness operational framework of defining consciousness assumes a graded level of both arousal and awareness. At the lower end of both the arousal and awareness scales isExpand
Biomolecular Basis of Cellular Consciousness via Subcellular Nanobrains
TLDR
This work has developed the cellular basis of consciousness (CBC) model, which proposes that all biological awareness, sentience and consciousness are grounded in general cell biology. Expand
Effects of low-level combined static and weak low-frequency alternating magnetic fields on cytokine production and tumor development in mice
TLDR
Tumor-bearing mice exposed to a combined constant magnetic field and an alternating magnetic field of 100 nT containing six frequencies showed a strong suppression of tumor growth with an increase in survival rate and enhancement of average lifespan. Expand
The brain as a “hyper-network”: the key role of neural networks as main producers of the integrated brain actions especially via the “broadcasted” neuroconnectomics
TLDR
It is surmised that neuronal networks are the “core components” of the brain hyper-network that has as special “nodes” the multi-facet tetra-partite synapses, and suggested that investigations on the functional plasticity of multi-partites in response to BNC can be the background for a new understanding and perhaps a new modelling of brain morpho-functional organisation and integrative actions.

TLDR
