Hi Georgina, Agreed ,


No, too many people try linking adverts or untrustworthy sites.


If neurons sometimes send and receive electromagnetic signals an obvious possible antenna is the microtubule in the axon. Penrose theorized that microtubules can act like a specialized quantum computer -- perhaps to filter and process the information supplied by photons being absorbed by the microtubule.

Microtubules of different neurons might absorb different frequencies of EM radiation. By experimenting and theorizing about which frequencies of photons would be absorbed -- those...
