We wake up, we get ready for work, we go to work, we work, we come home, we work some more, we watch TV, we might go to sleep and then repeat.

The common thing that we all usually experience is that time moves forward, but what if Physics and Neurology actually showed us that time doesn’t always move forward.

According to this series, Because Science Matters, there are a number of experiments that seem to show that people can sense an experience through their sensory perceptions, but send the information from these senses back in time to our brains such that we can project the anticipation our sense will live.


As a working example the video describes test that measured the speed of response in the brain resulting from a pin prick on our finger can actually show up in our brain just before the pin prick actually occurs.

If we accept this concept and rethink our own positions on time, just as Einstein and almost every physicist has since, how can we use this information?

When we are working with skills that require sensory perception and stimuli can we actually let our senses take us ahead of the time curve and inform our brains ahead of time.

Baseball players could receive the information that the ball is coming, relay the sensory perception of this back to their brains and prepare their swing to connect with the ball.  Its not anticipation and a backwards projection of the future.  This scenario was actually covered by researchers.

MindMapping with our Time Traveling Brain

When we mindmap out thoughts its widely recognized that we engage more of our senses.  This engagement gives users the perception that they are absorbing the material ‘faster’ and a great deal of research has been done over the last forty years to prove that people learn more comprehensively and more quickly when there are multiple stimuli including colors, pictures, shapes, symbols, sounds, feeling and smell.

For forty years people have looked at this type of learning from the perspective that we are speeding up our brains ability to digest the information.  What if our brain was not only processing it faster, but receiving the processed information seconds before we saw and absorbed it.  Maybe these MindMap led meetings are actually enabling us to come to decisions faster  and figure out complex solutions as if ‘the answer was intuitively apparent’ because we are training our senses to project information to our brains in the past where the information can be processed and more rapidly prepared for action, just like a home run hitting baseball player learns the technique of mind and body to connect with the ball with explosive force.

If this theory holds true, then the more we can dynamically engage our senses the more likely we will be to benefit from heightened backward projection and the more time our brains will receive in forewarning of the information.  By cheating and allowing our brains and senses to engage in time travel, we actually benefit from having MORE TIME to process an idea and thus when measured like a metric our holistic body as a system of sensors and organs including the brain benefits from time traveling information.

What will you do with all of that extra time now that you better understand your own system?  Better yet, knowing this bio information system capability can we extend this concept to some of the bio computing devices and teach our computers to process the information before we ask the question or execute the run command?
