Meijer described via email how this ?dynamic holographic boundary? collects information from inside the brain as well as from the ?information fields in which our brain is permanently embedded.? He said: ?In this manner, it is implicitly connected to a universal information matrix.? The st ruct ure of t he hypot hesized ment al f iel d coul d t ake t he shape of a t orus. The geometrical shape known as a torus is well suited for the nature and functions Meijer attributes to the mental field. A torus is described by the Merriam Webster dictionary as, ?a doughnut-shaped surface generated by a circle rotated about an axis in its plane that does not intersect the circle.? Meijer presented various reasons within physics theories for choosing this shape for his hypothesized mental field. One reason is related to a theory of how electrical activity in the brain oscillates. The nested torus structure suggested by Dr. Dirk Meijer for the mental field connected to the brain. These rhythms have been compared to microscopic features of the universe, such as those described by String Theory. Meijer described these as ?multidimensional torus movements.? The torus structure is found in physics from the micro-scale to the extreme macro-scale of black holes and the universe as a whole, Meijer explained. It could be instrumental in dynamically integrating information in the mind and brain. Meijer discusses t he broader impl icat ions f or t he phil osophy of mind?mat t er rel at ionships. Meijer wrote: ?Our paper, may directly contribute to an answer on the famous question of [cognitive scientists and philosopher David] Chalmers ? : how can something immaterial like subjective experience and self-consciousness arise from a material brain?? The ability of the mental field to pick up information from other fields, as conceived by Meijer, could also explain some anomalous phenomena, such as extrasensory perception, he noted. In his view, ?Consciousness can be regarded as the most basic building block of nature and consequently is present at all levels of the fabric of reality.? Since quantum physics emerged, scientists have been exploring its ability to explain consciousness. Meijer?s work fits within that exploration. Update: Dr. Dirk Meijer has provided an update on his paper, clarifying that quantum tunneling and entanglement are not the most likely methods of information transfer between the mental field and the brain. These two phenomena have been shown to provide only a correlation between two particles, not necessarily information transfer (although that may prove to be the case with further research). Rather, quantum wave resonance is a more likely mechanism of extremely rapid information processing in the brain. This means, instead of signals being sent between neurons in the brain, a wave pattern that encompasses all neurons, as well as the menta fVBG&6֗G2FRf&F7FFVW6ǒ7GW&Rf'&FvfRvrWBFv667FVBGFW&B'VrF&VvW"'&BWfVWG6FRbBFBGFW&6V6FW2f&FFB6&RVFW'7FB'f'&F'&V6WF'2W"'&bF22VrFV6BB֖7&662WfVBF&V7FǒW&6WF&RF&Vv6fVF66VFf27G'VVFFBW"F76FFWB6&RfW'&VBF&Vv66@FVF6FVƖrftF&462GvGFW"F&2&VwV"6G&'WF"FW6FW2&WB66V6R f6V&F6FVRW&rFRWrg&FW'2b66V6RvRS2FV2#p
