"Neural interfaces currently approved for human use squeeze a tremendous amount of information through just 100 channels, with each channel aggregating signals from tens of thousands of neurons at a time. The result is noisy and imprecise. In contrast, the NESD program aims to develop systems that can communicate clearly and individually with any of up to one million neurons in a given region of the brain."

We can hear microwaves as clicks because the head “boiling wave”, the thermoelastic wave causes vibration of an inner ear part (II)


As the thermoelastic wave arrives at the ear it induces 1 per 20μs = 50KHz sound wave.

We can hear microwaves as clicks because the head “boiling wave”, the thermoelastic wave causes vibration of an inner ear part (I)


Why do we actually hear something? Take a map of the auditory system and determine what parts are activated. 



The phenomenon is similar to transmission of sound in solids, as shown in the following picture.







Microwave auditory effect: Why RADAR operators hear electromagnetic radiation as clicks



Phenomenon : 2450MHz in pulses that are 27µs apart and that are delivered at an intensity of 1250–40000 mW/cm2 give an auditory effect of a click or chirp to a person such as a radar operator.


How do you explain it?

2450MHz? That is the radiofrequency used by all microwave ovens in the world for heating.

Just take these conditions to the lab, or even to the kitchen!

What will you try it on? A bowl of water will suffice initially.

France Info 105.5MHz, SFR mobile 3G 900MHz and 2100 MHz, all microwave ovens 2450MHz



How do we use the 2450MHz radiofrequency of microwave ovens


What happens when we heat water in a microwave oven?

In short: Microwave electromagnetic radiation exerts electric forces that change direction 2.450.000.000 times per second and rotate water molecules because these have electric poles!

Intern. Syria Support Group reaffirmed determination to strengthen Cessation of Hostilities




Excerpts from Joint Statement:


Cessation of Hostilities

  • welcomed the ongoing work of the Task Force and other mechanisms to facilitate solidifying of the cessation such as the UN Operations Center and Russian-U.S. Coordination Cell in Geneva

Ensuring Humanitarian Access

  • The ISSG insisted on concrete steps to enable the provision of urgent humanitarian deliveries to the following locations: Arbeen, Darraya, Douma, East Harasta, Mouadhimiyeh, Zabadin and Zamalka.
  • Starting June 1, if the UN is denied humanitarian access to any of the designated besieged areas, the ISSG calls on the World Food Program to immediately carry out a program for air bridges and air drops for all areas in need.

Advancing a Political Transition the norm

  • The ISSG reiterated the objective of meeting the target date established by UNSCR 2254 of August 1 for the parties to reach agreement on a framework for a genuine political transition,

When entropy increase is reflected on increase of surface. A holographic paradigm.


What happens when a black hole devours stuff?

Stuff is homogenized, reduced to particles.

More particles in a ballon? Increase of volume? Increase of entropy?

Scientistist tells us increase of the surface of its horizon. Increase of entropy proportional to the increase of its horizon surface.

What is inside, in a 3D space, in a volume is represented on a 2D surface?

That is similar to 3D object represented on 2D holographic film. Holography.



Statistical laws of thermodynamics :

"a macroscopic average over the motions of myriad atoms and molecules"


Statistical laws of gravity :

"a macroscopic approximation to the unseen constituents of space and time"








In photography light from object hits the film.

In holography, before it does that, you must have it interfere with the "original" light that hit the object.

The interference pattern of the two is to be sent on the film.


You get a "maze" in the emulsion of the fim. Shine light on it, and the light will follow the same track and will reproduce the image.

T. Young discovers that light behaves as a wave using a card:

Take a card with two slits and shine light on it; you will get stripes on the wall.

De Mistura requests consultation for clarification of resolution 2254 to issue invitations for opposition/attendees of Syrian talks. Link


As De Mistura has trouble with issuing invitations for attendees of Syrian talks -  since parties “question the UN discretion in “finalising” the opposition list” -  Council/ISSG consultation is requested for clarification of resolution 2254 concerning the Riyadh proceedings.


Should the High Negotiations Committee, established by Riyadh meeting,  be “THE” opposition delegation?


“Other Syrians, who did not attend or were not invited to the Riyadh meeting in December, speak to their right to be invited simultaneously and on equal footing, and are supported by some ISSG members in this.”



Modus operandi of talks

Also introduces the notion of “proximity talks” (as opposed to direct talks and all people around the same table).

Planned modus operandi: "plenaries, bi/trilats, caucus meetings, proximity talks"

Cyprus: peace deal within a year?


Cyprus could be on the brink of a historic peace deal, the divided island's leaders said in Davos today. It would bring to an end what has been described as one of the world’s most intractable ethnic disputes.

The island has been divided since 1974, when Turkish forces invaded the north. They were responding to an Athens-backed military coup. The border dividing the island’s Greek and Turkish inhabitants, called the “Green Line”, is patrolled by UN peacekeeping troops.

"After his head trauma, he “complained bitterly that he was just — bored. “There was no hint of apathy about it at all,” says Danckert. “It was deeply frustrating and unsatisfying for him to be deeply bored by things he used to love.” “


"researchers such as Eastwood are intent on finding better ways to understand what boredom is and why it is correlated to so many other mental states."

Civil Society and the Future of Syria



"It is not easy to pay attention to a young woman attorney trying to organize Syria’s lawyers as barrel bombs fall, hostages get beheaded, and the country empties itself of terrified, desperate people. It is easy to become persuaded that others trying to educate an otherwise lost generation are spitting into the wind, or that dedicated people providing the kindling for independent media are engaged in a fool’s errand."


"There are, to be sure, Syrian civil society assistance programs managed by various agencies of Western governments.(...)"

"EU stands by its climate committments and its policies work"

European Union is on track towards meeting and overachieving its 2020 target for reducing greenhouse emissions by 24% 
Report published today by the European Environment Agency (EEA)
"These results speak for themselves: Europe succeeded in cutting emissions by 23% between 1990 and 2014 while the European economy grew by 46% over the same period. We have shown consistently that climate protection and economic growth go hand in hand. This is a strong signal ahead of the Paris climate conference that Europe stands by its commitments and that our climate and energy policies work.

US recognises EU system to control animal diseases

New status:

"In the US Federal Register notice, the US Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) recognises any EU region that the EU or any EU Member State has placed under restriction because of ASF. In so doing, the US APHIS recognises the EU as a single entity with a single animal health legislation, veterinary oversight and disease control programmes. The significance of this notice is that, rather than carrying out its own assessment, the US will accept EU decisions regarding regions affected by ASF."
