topics are.
crying
water
everything is or isnt energy

People cry to relieve stress and to 'ask for help'...We drink water so we can make energy through respiration...Matter isn't energy

There was a TV prog on tonight called 'Transplanting Memories' it was interesting in suggesting that our hearts could act as emotional memory centres as some people who had recieved transplants had experienced new ways of thinking/skills/info/memories and even dreams about there recipent which turned out to be right..... There was a study done where they wired up peoples brains and hearts and found the heart was infact the first one to respond to emotional information, triggering of memories before the brain did. I did a search looking for more info and found a webpage writen by someone inspired by this prog. The article does touch on paranormal and spirituality which is why i posted it in this section, any mod can feel free to move it if it's in the wrong section original.gif

I think the concept opens up quite a can of worms. It does lend support to the theory of cellur memory - ie when someone has lost a limb but still experinces the sensations of having that limb and the theory that scent cells contain memory in each cell. There is some impressive case studies about halfway down the page if you don't have time to read the entire article.

I always figured Cells held memories.

Didn't feel like reading through all of the thread, so some of this might have already been said.  The brain is also a muscle.  We don't even know how memories are stored, we have theories, but we don't know for sure.  We don't know which area of the brain they're stored in, it actually kinda looks like all of them.  My current understanding is that we think they are electrical impulses going in between cells.

The heart has nodes that produces it's own nerve impulses separate from the brain.  This is how the heart beats on its own, separate from instructions coming straight from the brain.  If memories are indeed stored in the neurons, that means they could be stored anywhere in the body.  Nerves run all through the body.

Matter is energy according to string theory tongue.gif.

There's a difference between the pacemaker in the heart and glial cells in the brain. The Heart does not store "memory".
Glial cells are more like neurons than cells than myocardio tissue.

I don't care about the string theory. On a side note, the only time mass was proven to be enegry (and vice versa) is E=mc^2. That's why you cannot accelerate past c (speed of light). As you get closer to c (.99, .999, .9999) energy is converted to mass, and mass aproached infinity. It takes in infinite amount of force to accelerate an infinite amount of mass. That's why you cannot accelerate past c.

There are different neurons in the body. Some attach the CNS, while others to the outer body. Motor neurons, sensory neurons, and pseudopolare neurons.

Yes, but glial cells are also in the PNS.  How can we be sure memories aren't stored in the nervous system all around the body?  

On a side note, E=mc^2 hasn't been proven, we don't have the technology yet.  We don't even have the technology to really know what matter is at its purest form.  It's all just theories.  All of the theories have errors, quantum mechanics doesn't work on a macroscopic level and special relativity doesn't work on a microscopic level.  Even mathematics isn't perfect, there are many errors in it.

Actually, it has.

Circulator particle accelerators, such as Fermilab proved E=mc^2

Glial cells are very rarely found in the PNS. For example, the Medical Cord of the PNS is mainly made up to T1, C7, and C8 roots. It is much more plausible and objective that memory is stored in the brain.
