There Is Now A Way To ‘Download’ Knowledge To Your Brain, Science Claims

The Matrix just got real. Talk about life imitating art!

Gaining new knowledge, although rewarding, can be challenging at the same time. Just imagine having to read lots of books or check out various online references when you need to research about a certain topic.

So yes, it can be a time-consuming process and you just can’t help but feel overwhelmed sometimes. One way or another, you may have probably wished there was a way to simply ‘download’ information into your brain, just like in The Matrix!

Apparently, there is now a way to feed information directly into a person’s brain.

Talk about a case of life imitating art!

Researchers from California-based HRL Laboratories are claiming that they’ve found a revolutionary way to boost the learning process, Matrix-style.

As you can probably remember from the sci-fi classic, Neo (played by Keanu Reeves) was able to master kung fu in seconds after it was ‘uploaded’ to his brain.

Now the people over at HRL have developed a simulator capable of doing that, albeit in a lesser degree. They believe that this could be the first steps in creating advanced software that can enhance learning like never before.

Dr Matthew Phillips said, “Our system is one of the first of its kind. It’s a brain stimulation system.

“It sounds kind of sci-fi, but there’s large scientific basis for the development of our system.”

During the research, HRL targeted one type of information – aircraft piloting.

According to Phillips:

“The specific task we were looking at was piloting an aircraft, which requires a synergy of both cognitive and motor performance.

“When you learn something, your brain physically changes. Connections are made and strengthened in a process called neuro-plasticity.”

Certain brain functions are located in very specific regions of the brain.

“It turns out that certain functions of the brain, like speech and memory, are located in very specific regions of the brain, about the size of your pinky,” added Phillips.

During the study, novice subjects received brain stimulation using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).

The goal, of course, was to improve learning and skill retention before piloting an aircraft in a flight simulator.

The subjects turned out performing better and had a greater consistency of 33% compared with a placebo group.

Sounds too good to be true, you say?

    Whelp, here it is, the future Johnny Mnemonic meets The Matrix. Next, BioShock. I wonder what things will be like looking back 50 years from now.

Rare-Earth Mineral Deposit That Could Meet Global Demands For Centuries Found In Japan

Japan could soon dominate the global supply of rare-earth minerals.

Researchers in Japan have discovered deposits of rare-earth minerals capable of supplying the world on a “semi-infinite basis.” The new study, published in Nature, stated that the deposit is abundant in valuable metals.

The study authors wrote that there are 16 million tons of these metals. There’s enough amount of yttrium to sustain the global demand for almost 800 years. There are also enough amounts of dysprosium, europium and terbium to meet the demand for hundreds and hundreds of years.

10 Scientific Theories that Could Hint at the Possible Existence of God

Can science prove the existence of God? Well check out these scientific explanations!

Science and religion don’t always together. Nonetheless, a number of intrepid scientists have made it their mission to prove the existence of God (with a capital G) with science. Some of these theories have their own holes and critics, but believers may find it attractive to learn that science may be starting to align with their beliefs.

Physicist Kurt Godel created a mathematical equation based on Saint Anselm’s ontological argument for the existence of God. The argument is based on the premise that God is the greatest being in the universe. If God does not exist, he (or she, or it, whatever floats your boat) does not exist. And a greater being—one that exists—is possible to imagine. But since it’s not possible to imagine a being greater than the greatest being in the universe, then God must necessarily exist.
