New Theory on the Physics of Consciousness Says: It’s the Magnetic fields in the Brain

November 29, 2019 (prsubmission) – What does it feel like to be a magnetic field, coming from millions of magnets? It feels like awareness. That’s how neuroscientist Todd Murphy explains the physics of consciousness.

In a research publication released 11/19, he suggests that consciousness is a basic property of all magnetic fields, including the one in the brain (with its five million magnetite crystals per gram). The brain’s magnetic field, coming from these microscopic magnets, “sees” the brain’s electrical activity, letting us know what it’s doing. The many positive and negative poles of the brain’s magnets serve as in/out feedback channels, essential for awareness, allowing our brain’s complex magnetic field to support vast feedback mechanisms.

Prof. Todd Murphy points out that electrical currents in brain cells also create magnetism (Maxwell’s Equations), influencing the fields from the brain’s magnetite. Its magnetic field (consciousness) “picks up,” or resonates with, information encoded in neuronal electric pulses, coming from emotions, thoughts, and the senses.

Consciousness is what the brain’s inner magnetic field, with its many sources, feels like. Living things are aware through their senses because the brain’s inner magnetic field, produced by its millions of tiny magnets, receives all its electrical sensory information. The neural magnetic field broadcasts all of it throughout the brain, at a fraction of the speed of light, instantly combining all ongoing experiences.

Proving it will be a challenge, because science can’t prove that anything is conscious. The only way to know consciousness exists is through subjective experience, which isn’t admissible as scientific evidence. However, Murphy suggests several tests that would help support his theory.

Murphy’s paper, “Solving the “Hard Problem”:  Consciousness as an Intrinsic Property of Magnetic Fields” appears in the Journal of Consciousness Exploration and Research. He’s published several journal articles, and three books in neuroscience. Todd Murphy has been associated with Laurentian University’s Neuroscience Program since 1998.

Medigraytion Launches Pioneering Condition/Disease-Based Meditation Streaming Site

BOSTON, ( PR Submission Site) November 15, 2018– This first-of-its-kind website provides meditations focused on alleviating the symptoms and effects of specific conditions and diseases.

Medigraytions aim to bridge the gap between the scientifically proven health benefits of meditation and pinpointing very specific areas of disease where these benefits may be focused. “There is a proven mind-body connection and many chronic conditions and diseases have a link to dysfunctional mental/emotional patterns,” said Laura Graye, founder of Medigraytion. “Using meditation and neural plasticity to focus specifically on areas in the body where these patterns have materialized into a physical disease may help alleviate the symptoms, and in some cases, may shift the trajectory of the disease toward healing.”

The site launched its first series of Medigraytions designed to support those who suffer from chronic diseases affecting the highest populations in the US. “Immune diseases, digestive disorders, anxiety conditions and sleep issues together affect more than one hundred million people,” said Graye. “Providing specifically focused meditations for these conditions, Medigraytion offers people an opportunity to take greater ownership of their health.” The site also offers personalized Medigraytions for individuals whose conditions/diseases are not yet in the series library.

The site’s simple streaming system typically offers 5 to 7 Medigraytions per series. Each meditation within the series focuses on specific aspects of that disease such as cellular health, neural plasticity, organ consciousness, and reversing the mental/emotional effects of the condition. Every Medigraytion comes with an introductory explanation and a simple anatomy guide to help the listener attune to the pathophysiology of their disease.

To create the Medigraytion Series, the Medigraytion team culls pioneering research in neural plasticity and blends it with the sciences of biology, anatomy, physiology, sound, and quantum medicine. Synthesizing this information, they design simple-to-follow, 8-12 minute meditations produced with guided imagery, ambient sound, science, metaphor, and conscious awareness specifically focused on healing.

As a streaming site, provides members access to any Medigraytions in all the series. “It is well-proven someone with one issue, such as an immune dysfunction, is likely to have digestive or sleep issues as well,” Graye said in describing one reason they moved to a streaming membership.

Boston-based Medigraytion is the first online digital library of conditioned/disease-based meditations.
