The Law of Entrainment “In 1665 Dutch Scientist Christian Huygens decsribed something which is now called the law of entrainment. This law holds that if two or more rhythms are in close proximity, they will always fall into syncrony. Huygens observed that pendulum wall clocks, when placed next to each other, would become “entrained” and beat in sync with each other. This law holds true for all types of rhythms, bio, celestial, mechanical, musical ect.” from: http://www.louisville.edu/~ahkole01/metaphys.html

Bell’s Theorem roughly states that when two particles A & B are separated by great distances, certain actions on particle A can still effect particle B instantaneously. even if this reaction time exceeds the speed of light.

neurology

the nervous system controls the actions and sensations of all the parts of your body by using a complex network of nerves, which carry electrical signals to and from the brain.  The brain and spinal cord compose the central nervous system, acting as the central clearing house.  One part of your nervous system controls your body’s relationship to the external environment (somatic) and another part controls your body’s internal organs (autonomic).  The human body has five major senses which operate to gather information from the world around us, sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch.  Any stimulus to one of the sense areas is detected by sensory nerves and is sent to the brain for interpretation.
