    Hello, this is my personal story of how I have overcome my memory loss and the degeneration of my my mind. i am NOT advising you to use this knowledge or methodology in any way, and that is up to you to decide. I have studied at the University of Guelph and am an active researcher in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, quantum science, nanoscience and anthroopology.

    This is based from my studies on memory, alzheimer's, amnesia, and various other psychological ailments.



    Indeed memories, may even be encoded redundantly, several times, in various parts of the cortex, so that, if one engram (or memory trace) is wiped out, there are duplicates, or alternative pathways, elsewhere, through which the memory may still be retrieved.


    To form neurons willfully, through new pathways or to reconstruct pathways, creating new knowledge (of memory as well) to align to our perceptual centers, in order to form new experience and memory activity, you can bypass all that you know already of memory and your condition.

    You cannot solve a problem with the same consciousness that created it. - Albert Einstein.


    You can begin to form a new approach, form new knowledge of your condition, and memory systems. This creates a new neuron firing sequence, forming from the new knowledge, which get placed into your attention, to access new regions, and new pathways.

    With the intent to focus attention into new regions, forming new pathways, as well as reconstructing old pathways, one can find that you are automatically accessing new regions of the brain previously unused. Most humans only use a very small percentage of their brains. When accessing the knowledge that we contain duplicate memory centers in our mind, then your attention begins to seek and access the neurons to reach this duplicate system. The knowledge we contain about memories actually forms into our attention and intent, to travel to the selected, and chosen (perceived) destination. It forms this new sequences of firing neurons to activate the perceived outcome. However if you contain the damaged form of knowledge, and memory, then you spark the destination to travel to this pathway or outcome.


    It can utilize many different regions of the brain including the imagination centers, and dreaming centers as well. These regions actually can aid in the construction of new memory neurons, as well as activating totally new memory centers not normally used.

    Knowledge and awareness aligns to form and guide your perception, and experience itself. So the perception you have of your mind forms the experience you receive. However awareness and knowledge may shift, be transformed, converted, and thus reconstructed as well. You can let go of old damaging forms of knowledge and awareness to reform new paths, neuron sequences, and even create, imagine, or dream, new forms of knowledge and awareness into your self. This activates new perceptions, new awareness, and forms new sequences as well as memory systems.


    If you perceive through the knowledge and awareness active within your brain that your memories are stored within your mind, then that is the experience you will generate. If you perceive that your memories form from outside of you, from a specific source, and are directed into you, or channeled into you, then that is what you will experience. If you perceive that memories can not form, or get blocked, or wiped away, or even that you are losing your memories and mind, then that is the sequence you are firing, or aligning into your experience unfortunately. This is how your intent and will is being set and placed, and thus these are the pathways developed and traveled through. As Einstein states you must reform a new angle of approach, in order to receive a new alignment and experience to manifest.

    If you can focus on your attention you can examine what occurs within it, and perceive and intend how you want your attention to develop. This means that if you see your attention degenerating, or you see your memories being wiped, you can focus onto this actions, and begin to see it in another way, forming a new path for the future and intend and envision it in a new formation, or action. You can gradually see that destructive action lesson with each focus onto it, by imagining or perceiving it become less destructive each time. you can perceive it fading away, and imagine your memories activating again, gradually, or even spontaneously forming in the way you desire and perceive. Focus onto the 'next time' it happens only focus on a positive outlook, a developing positive progression, into your future, and thus willfully intent this form pf pathways, and neuron activity,. With practice you can align your intent and selective knowledge that you imagine yourself, form yourself, and fuse this pathway into your mind.

    You can intend and form your new attention to even selectively align only specific memories into you that you want to have, and begin to form 'streams' of memories with exact purpose. So when you want to remember something in particular your memory system will actually align all the right memories that have to do with that intent, in the specific intended order.

    With practice you can self-intend and control how your mind and memory form, to the knowledge and perception you want to have, instead of accepting the forms that have been handed to you, and conditioned into you by past society. So if you can envision and intend that your memories are intact perfectly as you had them when they occurred you will access that form of perception, that sequence, that region of your brain. The possibilities here are endless.

    This is a synopsis of the knowledge I attained that overcame the ailments, hence the how.

    I left out the tales of the wandering lost man with no memories in a world he knew nothing about, with no past and only present. Sorry to disappoint.

    They don't let you off the hook that easy around here. That whole post seemed like BS to me, so I want to know exactly what illness you had to begin with.

    Alas, then for you it is so... complete B.S. Take it or leave it is up to you as i stated clearly in my opening waiver. I suggest you study the memory, the brain, the formation of awareness and knowledge into perception, imagination and dreaming, if you want to verify for yourself. But then my path follows quantum sciences as well. Also you should look up different forms of amnesia, as well as alzheimer's disease, if you are so inclined. Also i'd advise checking out the cultures of ancient toltec and nagualism which has benefited me greatly in this field. I do not have the time to find references and sources for you I[m afraid, much of this was learned in school, and research, and absorbed over time.

    I do take different approaches in my research and development however as i find it necessary to reform the ailment, create new pathways and perception as result.

    I've been performing research and experimentation in these fields for the last 11 years.

    Yeah, I find it fascinating but much of it does seem like BS. What research and experimentation have you done to, I assume, prove any of what you said?

    Well the proof I have gathered is in the health of my patients. My main focus in this regard is psychology. However some of the research is already proven in the fields I have pointed out. Much has been handed off to other scientists in various fields to study and to verify. Such as the finding that memories are located in various parts of the brain, all over, and as well as duplicate memory centers, and the study of the formation of these systems as well, how neurons activate differently depending on the knowledge and focus of attention through various constructed pathways. Which has been published. How these pathways are developed through our attention and awareness. We learn how to willfully create different forms of memory systems. It is actually an ancient practice already found in various cultures already since at least the early post-classic period of Mesoamerican chronology (ca800-1000 ce), although this has time line has been debated. Which is how it relates to my anthropological studies. Not to mention it is mentioned in different literature in western society referring to enhancing your memory. usually they walk you through the knowledge as you read, (which forms the pathways) aligns your perception, and focuses your intent for you, into the paths they are teachings.

    We learn to willfully create different forms of memory systems? Like? What studies have been done on this? Planning on going to grad school for cognitive science, I have learned a bit about memory. I am not saying I am some sort of authority, but I am somewhat familiar with the research done.

    As a current anthropology major, I find it hard to believe that you are learning about ancient Indian wisdom considering they couldn't write. How are you learning about these things? Which literature in western society refers to enhancing your memory? Do you mean the people who used to memorize entire books? Because associative memory doesn't seem like it's what you are describing at all.

    I'm putting this in personal theories section for the time being. If no evidence is provided for the claim, we may move it to a lower category.

    Then there is no point in even bringing your debate to the table as it is dead on arrival.

    Performing "research" and "experimentation" in the fields of woo and hocus pocus does not a scientist make.

    Actually most of western society is very daft, very conditioned, and left in the dark. Maya - refers to illusion, or God-like power and abilities, as well as the dream-time. They did not see reality as westerner's do, and did not perceive time as westerner's do either. Buddhists refer to sidhe, as God-like abilities and powers. But westerners scorn and mock all such things, and shove the masses into limited states of perception and close the doors to these states very often. Ancient toltec's refer to the ability of transferring the physical mass of the body into awareness, where tehn can form their own knowledge of their body in order to transform their bodies, and teach these techniques to their disciples. In which I study and learn, and practice myself. Ancient Shamanism refers to this as the art of bodily transformation, or even shape-shifting. All of the cultures mentioned travel into alternate worlds, alternate state of being, different dimensions of reality, as well as alternate timelines, history and even future, in which they perceived as simultaneous. They have a different version of history then westerners do, and as such see a different worldly view, or perceptual state. Some of these cultures use ancient forms of knowledge to speak with ancestors who have passed on into the after plains, and use guides and allies to teach them. Inorganic realities vastly different then the western perception of reality. They practice forms of recapitulation in order to harness directly, and channel into them, the lessons and lives of their masters directly, so they can learn from them the exact lessons and mastery's that they have learned. In this process creating a record of time, a perfect active replica of every thought, realization, and lesson etc that ever was. Different cultures have different names for these records. For example Akashic records, derived from akasha or ether, an element of the astral. Although different cultures have different values for these terms, they vary slightly. It is also used to access any memory every had, and is external from oneself, yet can be brought into the consciousness. As well as making it possible to learn from any source merely through the intent and focus of attention to a reference point in order to receive or see, or even enter. Many cultures have/had many techniques to expand their awareness, knowledge, and hunted new forms of awareness and perception constantly to advance themselves. This includes memory although does not imply memory as the average person knows memory to be. They would enter into the unknown, seeking infinity, to find totally new and often even bizarre forms of reality and awareness positions. Some cultures teach how to defy death itself, and many of these apprentices leave the world behind to live in an alternate reality, where they can sustain their live's, their awareness indefinitely even to this very day. Some of them allegedly have lived for over 5000 years. They often have sought these beings for their incredible awareness as they have had so long to cultivate and know so much. Incredible feats beyond our own imaginations are simple for them to accomplish. Westerners however mostly believe that only one form of reality exists, a limited one, shallow, and have often condemned these cultures, keeping only to their dogmatic ways and limited perspectives.

    I will answer more of your questions later, as I am pressed for time. Sadly the last time i had no time to dig up my books and findings and said I dont have the time i was insulted by a lame westerner stuck in a box, that was demanding proof. *shakes head* Why do westerners demand proof so often in order to believe something? Can not use reason, logic, even faith to find it for themselves? These things, belief, faith, trust, and self-seeking, are very powerful tools. Much stronger then following only someone else's evidence. But I will still do what I can for you.. later.

    Yes, evidence is important. It's to make sure we are just gullible and listening to any random conspiracy theories and cultural superstitions much like what you seem to believe. Maybe if you had similar standards you wouldn't believe in such whimsical nonsense. I'm sure people have claimed at some point that someone lived to be 5,000 but some of us aren't going to just mindlessly accept it. Why do you?

    I honestly wouldn't recommend listening to the scientific claims from cultures that made up random myths about the world around them. So continue this undeserved condescending attitude while I sit here and laugh at the nonexistent standards of your sham belief system.

    That's the difference between you and me. I do not judge these cultures nor dismiss them as mere superstition as you do. I seek to learn about them and even explore the lands and cultures myself, listen to their teachings and discover for myself if it is true or not. I have found everything i have said is true, although I have not verified any 5000 year old people. From teachings of different cultures I learned phenomenal things, seen astounding things that westerners like yourself can not experience, because you have closed the channels, and doors to these experiences. Being open-minded and not judgeing preemptively allows me to be open, to see for myself. I truly do not listen to anyone's truth, even if they have empirical data that they claim is true. I find it out for myself only. I had no memory, except very short term, and even that got wiped away many times. And now I can real anything, even from many sources outside of myself. Do you know what happens when you enter into a state of awareness that judges magic as fake, or not real? you activate that form of perception and fail to see any of it. Unless someone with real power shows you directly. You guts will most likely cry but take a look at Carl Jung's synchronicity, as well as the law of attraction and manifestation, if you need your precious science to set your way for you. You attract no magic, close the doors to it, and that is the light formation you quantize.

    You guys are not scientists at all and you should stop pretending you are. A real scientist does not place bias before studying and experimenting. He does not enter into the study with preformed observations. Have you never heard that the observer effects the experiment? Oh I forgot you only listen to the studies and ways that suit you best, and ignore everything else. Good job guys.

    Scientists are unbiased observers who use the scientific method to conclusively confirm and conclusively falsify various theories.You guys are all full of judgements preformed limitations, and preset equations, and couldn't let them go if your life depended on it! BTW Toltec's and sorcerer's teach this too, to their very real apprentices. They call it suspending judgements, and awareness, knowledge, so to allow the the unknown to flow freely without effecting reality with their very real energies. They have taught it for ages, and yet your sciences have just discovered and proved only a few years ago that the observer effects the experiment.

    This is the same rhetoric as I get from young - Earth creationist, New Age Theosophists and conspiracy theorists. When you don't have any sort of standard for new beliefs, you will believe anything. Jesus doesn't "speak" to me because I don't believe. Same with Allah. Same with ancestors who have passed. It's because these simulated experiences are created in the mind. If you believe in Santa, you can "speak" to him. There is no basis of reality in these belief systems.

    Right, and so you do it again, you form your own judgements and opinions, your own bias without confirming for yourself. I have studied synchronicity in great depth, as well as the law of attraction and manifestation. And in doing so have found incredible, absolutely verifiable and fantastic evidence. i do almost every day. In direct physical reality. Some of it is in the mind yes, the alignment of awareness into form. Physical form. The mind manifests physical form! How else could you think about something and then have it appear!? Have the words of music, newpapers, books, people's voices, etc etc all align to what you are thinking, and what you think reality is?? Answering you directly even. It's astounding and happens to so many people every day that they made a science out of it. That is also the crux of sorcery itself. Awareness aligns to form our perceptual experience of reality.

    I've never claimed to be a scientist. I am, on the other hand, going to school and studying anthropology, superstition, religion and conspiracy theories. I have read the studies and read journals on these subjects everyday. All of real science disagrees with almost everything you have said with some exception to things you have mentioned about the mind. You claimed to be a scientist, interesting enough, while showing a complete lack of observance to how science works and then cry to us when we ask for any evidence. Claiming you are "too busy" but then going on to respond with paragraphs of nonsense. It's quite hilarious to be honest. Your posts are getting more childish as we go on and seems like a waste of time to continue. At first, I was captivated by this original post but found it to be gabble.

    If you do not have the knowledge, and the awareness formed within you of these ancestors and instead have the knowledge that opposes it. Then that awareness, that form of mindframe, forms to yourperceptual experience, your sychronous alignment, your attracted manifestation. Reality = REALity. Not non-relaity. When you perceive somethings as not real gues what forms in your perceptual experience? Its so simple.

    I don't have the time to dig into my books right now and find the right page and author sorry. I don't have the time nor desire to dig through the web to find the articles I studied and absorbed from ages ago either. I can however discuss and converse about what I have learned and already know as I am doing now. I do not have proof for all the things i have said no. science does not start with proof.

    Right I know, the law of attraction and manifestation is not valid to you despite it being a science just like anthropology is. I know Carl Yung's synchronicty is not valid either for you I know. Same with manifestation. It doesn't matter if they are verified and proven all over the world by billions. It doesn't matter if magic is real for billions either. You deny what you want to deny for whatever reason you find in biased approach. Support only what you want to support ans ignore everything else. I know i know You are scientists. Indeed.

    Lets just call it new age hogwash shall we and be done with it! Blah! never mind evolution, change, development and growth. Fission.

    Imagine this for a moment if you can.

    I say that synchronization applies from a direct link from your mind, or awareness position, to form into reality, as Yung states, and i and countless others have verified. Now imagine that this statement I made here "Ancient toltec's refer to the ability of transferring the physical mass of the body into awareness, where then can form their own knowledge of their body in order to transform their bodies, and teach these techniques to their disciples. " Is another form of sychronization, in a controlled manner, to synchronize their awareness of their body to the form of their body, just as the mind aligns to form into phsyical reality, manifesting just as the law of attraction states.. can you see the connection here? The proof? Or do actually want me to teach you these sciences? Want me to dig them up for you? really? can't you do a search for yourself? Study it for yourself to verify? I already gave priceless knowledge here, and believe it or not if you actually accepted it then you would align it into sync for yourself and reach these wonderful places. These dimensions, or values, upon which you can synchronize your values of your own dimension. Its all there. Even in synchronicty findings, and law of attraction findings,

    See when you dismiss synchronicity as coincidence you still do not avoid it. You have merely aligned to that new form of synchronicity, that form of attraction and manifestation. that position of awareness which aligns to form your perceptual experience.

    I honestly don't care to respond to your multitude of almost meaningless responses. All I know is that you have claimed more than one profession today on here and the GMO thread: you apparently are a "quantum chemist" who studies genetics and nanomeds who has some sort of "patients" that has done 11 years of "research" into how the brain functions that also has extensive research into memory and also where you apparently travel the world and in this apparent anthropological endeavor to search for different cultural superstitions. Along with the fact that you apparently discovered a miracle of curing some sort of amnesia which I assume nobody on Earth wrote anything about (scientifically and/or the media). Your claims are pseudoscientific and when asked for any type of evidence, you all of a sudden become to "busy" but clearly there is no evidence to be shown while at the same time waving your made-up credentials around to pretend to be some sort of an authority. Sorry, I wasn't born yesterday.

    This is the end of this thread for me as there is no point in going on. You can be whatever you want to be while you are on the internet and this guy proves it. This is a worthless endeavor and I hope you all have a great night!

    That's right, quantum chemistry is part of my quantum sciences course. And nanochems and meds is part of nanoscience, You'd be surprised at just how many fields quantum science and nanoscience enters into. Believe it or not. I also have my diploma in horticulture too. I studied advanced stem cell research where we used undifferentiated cells to propagate organs in cell culture dishes., and thats just a fraction of what i have learned. I also learn about DNA nanotechnologies as well which prerequisites an understanding of genetics. It enters into another field i study spectroscopy, or radiation and wavelengths. All these fields are tied together. Even psychology ties in with quantum and nano sciences. but whatever, deny it all, as you guys love to do. i'll come back though soon, and may just post some of the data you seek. we shall see. and yes i travel too, and enjoy it very much, believe it or not. my life is rich.

    Ever hear of a subset? It's a mathematical concept. THATS RIGHT I am a mathematician too. Are you amazed? Right I'm just a liar. Well anyways 1 is within 2 and 1 and 2 is within 3. Just like A is in B, and is made from A. Not to forget 0, which many of you forget here in this forum I found. 0 being the foundation, upon which all formula rests. 0 is present in all forms. All forms meet at zero. Which is needed to see that instant travel from one point to another, or transforming one formula into another, is dependent on this 'negative' values, or absence of one thing (subtraction) in order to free form, or modify form, into another form. When you remove the value of mass, or time, then you free the form present, in order to create nothingness between A to B. To travel through absence is to reach your destination instantly. In quantum sciences this is defined as creation and annihilation, to produce all forms, to reach all arrangements of quantized light. Yes spectroscopy studies light, just as quantum science also does. It requires many fields of study, just like 0 is present in 1 and both are within and make up 2. Nanosciences studies the smallest the tiniest formations of all things. What is within these structures, the bonds and relationships involved in their properties, and how they are formed, as well as how to reformulate them. You may be shocked to know that numbers and math is even in light, and numbers, creating a full spectrum of light and colour. Did you know that black, contains all the colours together? Black, void, absence, or 0. Contracting space, collections of points, at O. Amazing isn't it? We have attained full spectrum locks. And nanomaterials that can reform themselves by interactions with light, collecting and absorbing light, reacting to it so to be controlled by us, to reform matter. yes we emit light from our consciousness and attention. Psychology. Amazing isn't it!! All tied together, and from the same substance, into every substance itself. 1 into 2 is fission, growth, division, and 1+1 equals 2, collection, addition, fusion. 0 or negative, contraction, collection, (death) is what brings 1 together into 1 to make 2. Nothingness, void space between separation creates fusion. It's all present, now, all points, all fields, omni. Infinite, eternity, created form itself, forever expanding, ever contracting. Limitless.

    1 pathway 2 pathway 3 pathway 4 add em all together in 0 and you open a new door, all the while retaining everything you have in store!

    That's right kiddos I study english too, and love poetry!

    A mnemonic is "a word, sentence, or picture device or technique for improving or strengthening memory". One example of a mnemonic is themethod o loci, in which the memorizer associates each to be remembered item with a different well-known location. Then, during retrieval, the memorizer "strolls" along the locations and remembers each related item.
    The application of a mnemonic is intentional, suggesting that in order to successfully use a mnemonic device an individual should be aware that the mnemonic can aid his or her memory. Awareness of how a mnemonic facilitates one's memory is an example of metamemory. Wimmer and Tornquist conducted an experiment in which participants were asked to recall a set of items. Participants were made aware of the usefulness of a mnemonic device (categorical grouping) either before or after recall. Participants who were made aware of the usefulness of the mnemonic before recall (displaying metamemory for the mnemonic's usefulness) were significantly more likely to use the mnemonic than those who were not made aware of the mnemonic before recall.

    Metamemory, a type of metacognition, is both the introspective knowledge of one’s own memory capabilities (and strategies that can aid memory) and the processes involved in memory self-monitoring. This self-awareness of memory has important implications for how people learn and use memories. When studying, for example, students make judgements of whether they have successfully learned the assigned material and use these decisions, known as "judgments of learning".

    Neuroplasticity: The brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment. Understanding that the human brain can change through experience is the first step to improve memory function. It was once thought that the adult brain was a fixed entity, however it has been found that the brain is actually a highly flexible and plastic organ that changes based upon our experiences, emotions and behavior.

    The biopsychosocial perspective is a foundation of social work theory and practice. Recent research on neuroplasticity and psychosocial genomics lends compelling support to this perspective by elucidating mechanisms through which psychosocial forces shape neurobiology. Investigations of neuroplasticity demonstrate that the adult brain can continue to form novel neural connections and grow new neurons in response to learning or training even into old age. These findings are complemented by the contributions of psychosocial genomics, a field of scientific inquiry that explores the modulating effects of experience on gene expression. Findings from these new sciences provide external validation for the biopsychosocial perspective and offer important insights into the manifold means by which socioenvironmental experiences influence neurobiological structure and function across the life course.

    Discovery of the growth of new neural tissue, or neurogenesis, in the adult human hippocampus, a brain region responsible for memory (Eriksson et al., 1998), the dogma of the “hardwired brain” was formally repudiated.

    Mental practice also promotes neuroplasticity: neurogenesis can occur in the motor cortex just by imagining playing the piano (Pascual-Leone, Amedi, Fregni, & Merabet, 2005).

    One area of research that has found significant evidence of mental training leading to neuroplastic modifications in brain activity focuses on the study of meditation. Meditation, while greatly varying in technique and purpose across the diverse spiritual and cultural traditions where it is employed, may be generally defined as the intentional practice whereby one grasps “the handle of cognition” to cultivate a competent use of his or her own mental capacities, gaining agency over thought and emotion (Depraz, Varela, & Vermersch, 2003). Such intentional mental training has been shown to induce functional neurobiological changes.

    A study by Lutz and colleagues found marked alterations in the synchronization of neurons as an effect of long-term training in Buddhist loving-kindness meditation, a practice which is thought by some practitioners to promote a state of unconditional compassion and benevolence (Lutz, Greischar, Rawlings, Ricard, & Davidson, 2004). Neural synchrony of the type observed in this study may be indicative of coherent and integrated psychological functioning (Williams et al., 2005). The synchronization of brain activity found in some of the practitioners sampled, whose experience ranged between 10,000 and 50,000 hours spent in meditation, was higher than any previously reported in the literature. Such increased neural synchrony was observed not only during the meditative state, but also when the practitioners were not meditating, suggesting that long-term mental practice can induce lasting, trait-level changes possibly mediated by structural modifications to the brain (Begley, 2006).

    Other research has documented changes in neurobiological function as a result of mindfulness meditation, the practice of cultivating a present-centered, metacognitive awareness, “a naturalistic state wherein consciousness transcends its content to rest upon the dynamics of its own processes” (Garland, 2007). A recent study bySlagter et al. (2007) compared attentional performance of a group of experienced meditators participating in a 3-month mindfulness meditation retreat to that of a novice control group who received a 1-hour meditation class and were asked to meditate 20 minutes daily for one week. Relative to controls, experienced meditators evidenced significant improvements in attentional performance that correlated with alterations in brain activity. This cognitive enhancement was maintained 3 months after formal meditation practice, providing suggestive evidence that mental training can stimulate neuroplastic changes in the adult human brain (Slagter et al., 2007).

    While the work of Slagter et al. and Lutz et al. provide tentative support for meditation-induced neuroplasticity, neither study examined structural brain changes per se. However, two structural MRI investigations comparing the brains of experienced meditators to control subjects matched in sex, age, race, and years of education found that years of meditation experience correlated with increased cortical thickness in brain areas where visceral attention (e.g. right anterior insula) and self-awareness (e.g. left superior temporal gyrus) have been localized (Holzel et al., 2008; Lazar et al., 2005). These empirical investigations of meditation suggest that mental training may stimulate structural alterations reflective of neuroplasticity.

    The finding that experience and training can lead to the development of new neural connections has key implications. For example, persons suffering from what was once thought to be permanent brain injury can heal through rehabilitation designed to stimulate the damaged area, such as in the case of stroke (Taub et al., 2006).

    Since you added this disclaimer referring to the definition from wikipedia, stating that is 'obviously wrong' just shows how much do NOT know. AND SO I AM NOT HESITATING TO CORRECT YOU.

    It is a good definition which is why I used it.

    Metamemory is knowledge and awareness of your own memory, including the contents and processes of your memory. What do you remember and how confident are you in the accuracy of your memories? For example, you may realize that you’ve forgotten the date of a friend’s birthday, but you’re 90% sure it’s in July. Metamemory also includes the strategies you use to help you remember something.

    Metamemory refers to a person's knowledge about the contents and regulation of memory. The term originally derives from the work of John H. Flavell in the early 1970s. Metamemory enables a person to reflect on and monitor her memory. In addition, metamemorial knowledge plays an important role in planning, allocation of cognitive resources, strategy selection, comprehension monitoring, and evaluation of performance.

    Strategy use is highly correlated with skilled problem solving. Research also suggests that strategy training increases metamemory awareness, provided that conditional knowledge about the strategies is embedded within the instruction.

    Then why is his disclaimer only written once, and under only one post, from the wikipedia reference? I found that a little convenient.

    I didn't mean to plagiarize tho, and so i apologize, I always add references to my to research. I was in a rush last night, eager to find the evidence that everyone harped about being bullshit, and non existent, which i did, and there is more to come to.

    And from that disclaimer you managed to read the words "The definition given is obviously wrong"?
    Perhaps you should visit an optician.

    Since it was only written under my definition given of metamemory, and not his signature any where else, and has no break between the definition, reading right into it, which states "Disclaimer: If I state something that is obviously wrong, please don't hesitate to correct me." I did connect them together yes. Sure seems like mighty convenient disclaimer to me. however I posted much proof and data already for all you people who claim it is all bullshit, and there is no evidence. And so I made my point already. Yet I will later find more amazing proof for you guys, just like I said i would in this thread earlier and did, despite you guys claiming and implying otherwise.

    If you claim the disclaimer was not directed at the message even though this is the only place it is posted, directly under my definition, with hardly any separation, then just let it go. It had already been addressed, and proven as correct. And so I am dropping it now. No need to throw insults around.

    I gave evidence that awareness of memory can enhance memory., so long as the knowledge system given is made aware to the person, forming the channels of that system. Also that imagination can alter your brain and memory as well, being that our consciousness and awareness forms our brain. That damaging awareness of your mind and memory should be let go, and new pathways be explored and formed. I gave evidence that you can re-write and form new connections, pathways. I gave evidence that diseases and even terminal conditions can be healed and regenerated as I stated. I gave evidence that how you perceive your mind effect how your mind functions. I gave evidence that meditation, careful controlled formation and direction of your attention can rebuild damaged pathways, form new pathways, and improve memory, form new memory, and alter existing pathways. Also to form long term enhancements in the brain activity(increased and enhanced). I gave evidence that intent to enhance and reform memory does what it intends to do. I gave evidence that the hippocampus, memory center, can grow new tissue, form new pathways, and create new memory, and alter old pathways, activity, form. I gave evidence that new and novel neural connections can grow new neurons, shape and form the brain, in response to learning and training. that the awareness of memory forms memory itself.

    This PROOF is verified already. and is within my post, written from the US national library of medicine, national institute of health. However if you want me to read it for too I am afraid you are out of luck. I already have taken the proof that applies to my original posting that you say is drivel and placed it into it's own posting, which contain the direct references to the research and experiments that verify these findings. The fact that you deny it does not erase the direct evidence, sorry for your loss.

    you cited a personal anecdote and followed it up with your interpretation of it.

    this constitutes neither evidence nor theory, just drivel.

    No, i posted empirical evidence, research and experimentation that clearly shows these findings. It can be found all over the web to, especially int he field or neurogenisis, The only drivel here is coming from you. Here is the post with the evidence and the web page. However later i find some more as well.

    Perhaps you missed it.

These empirical investigations of meditation suggest that mental training may stimulate structural alterations reflective of neuroplasticity.

    The finding that experience and training can lead to the development of new neural connections has key implications. For example, persons suffering from what was once thought to be permanent brain injury can heal through rehabilitation designed to stimulate the damaged area, such as in the case of stroke (Taub et al., 2006).

    okay, and how does this relate to your theory? seems entirely irrelevant unless you can actually explain it.

    remember, you said that we can willingly form new neurons and pathways and none of this research shows this to be the case. where does willingness enter into the equation?

    Intent, or intending to reform your mind and psychology forms is a willfull action. A decision.

    One area of research that has found significant evidence of mental training leading to neuroplastic modifications in brain activity focuses on the study of meditation. Meditation, while greatly varying in technique and purpose across the diverse spiritual and cultural traditions where it is employed, may be generally defined as the intentional practice whereby one grasps “the handle of cognition” to cultivate a competent use of his or her own mental capacities. (Depraz, Varela, & Vermersch, 2003). Such intentional mental training has been shown to induce functional neurobiological changes.

    The finding that experience and training can lead to the development of new neural connections has key implications. (Taub et al., 2006).

    Intentional and thereby willful conditioning, programming, and pathway formulation.

    Mental practice also promotes neuroplasticity: neurogenesis can occur in the motor cortex just by imagining playing the piano (Pascual-Leone, Amedi, Fregni, & Merabet, 2005). (mental practice and controlled imagination are intentional or willful actions. So long as you can control your imagination.

    Not to mention the other citatioons of meditation;s effects of the brain, Mediation, again, being a willful and controlled process.

    Since we know that omagination forms our brain and memory, as well as intended action including training and meditation can reform and build new neurons, genesis, and form new pathways as result, and we know that awareness of the memory effects the memory as well forming it. We can say that one can willfully control, imagine and form our own pathways as I indicated. We can form our own knowledge, comprehension, and development of our memory system. Willfully controlling and forming the patterns and pathways, the forms of our psych, even to the point of imagining it.

    did i intend to intend?

    did i intend to intend to intend?

    do you see an issue arising from what little explanation you're doing? what do you mean by a person intends? it seems that people become aware of intentions that happen to arise, and then they follow through on them (or don't) and that we believe that we are the authors of such intentions (or thoughts, actions etc.).

    I am not talking about what YOU think willfull actions are or intended action are, I am referring to how I meant it. I am also not debating of free-will here. I am using the actual definitions of the words only, which is how I used them, willfully. You perhaps are suggesting to me to perhaps change my definition of the words, which I am not going to willfully do, and have no intention on doing so. Even though i did not read your links.

    No, it doesn't matter if billions "believe" in something. That neither lends it merit nor makes it a valid science. That's why Christianity isn't a science and paranormal studies isn't a science. Science is not defined by what the ignorant masses believe in.

    Of course you say that. You want only yourself to be right, and it doesn't matter to you that these are definitions and vocabulary straight from the dictionaries themselves, in which the english language is based upon. I consider it proof, evidence, and is the widely accepted standard in this world. But noooo it's wrong to you somehow, only because it shows you were wrong. I gave you the definition of how i meant the word to mean when i said it in the first place, which is synonymous to me saying deliberately, or carefully planning to alter and form your pathways. Which is also indicated in the dictionary. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN TO SAY, regardless of you attempting to try to say i meant otherwise. And so now you know what I clearly meant when i used the word in the first place. This is coming from me, the one who used the word and knows the meaning upon which I intended it to mean.

    But see it how you want to, and deny the truth, many here do anyways. Good luck with that too. Maybe you write your own dictionary too, and form your own language and change the context of the english language, but then we won't know what YOU are actually meaning to say, would we? Sonce your definitions are different then everyone else's!

    I already did buddy. And posted it twice for people like you. As I said I did not have the time then to do as requested, but i found the time later, and that is why I repectfully apologized for not having the time in that moment. I also said i would provide later the evidence in other posts. Which I did.

    Here it is again, and if you need direct explanations then I will give the translations and accepted definitions to you as well. Here, yet again. And again there is more to come later.

    Neuroplasticity: The brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment. Understanding that the human brain can change through experience is the first step to improve memory function. It was once thought that the adult brain was a fixed entity, however it has been found that the brain is actually a highly flexible and plastic organ that changes based upon our experiences, emotions and behavior.

    The biopsychosocial perspective is a foundation of social work theory and practice. Recent research on neuroplasticity and psychosocial genomics lends compelling support to this perspective by elucidating mechanisms through which psychosocial forces shape neurobiology. Investigations of neuroplasticity demonstrate that the adult brain can continue to form novel neural connections and grow new neurons in response to learning or training even into old age. These findings are complemented by the contributions of psychosocial genomics, a field of scientific inquiry that explores the modulating effects of experience on gene expression. Findings from these new sciences provide external validation for the biopsychosocial perspective and offer important insights into the manifold means by which socioenvironmental experiences influence neurobiological structure and function across the life course.

    Discovery of the growth of new neural tissue, or neurogenesis, in the adult human hippocampus, a brain region responsible for memory (Eriksson et al., 1998), the dogma of the “hardwired brain” was formally repudiated.

    Mental practice also promotes neuroplasticity: neurogenesis can occur in the motor cortex just by imagining playing the piano (Pascual-Leone, Amedi, Fregni, & Merabet, 2005).

    One area of research that has found significant evidence of mental training leading to neuroplastic modifications in brain activity focuses on the study of meditation. Meditation, while greatly varying in technique and purpose across the diverse spiritual and cultural traditions where it is employed, may be generally defined as the intentional practice whereby one grasps “the handle of cognition” to cultivate a competent use of his or her own mental capacities, gaining agency over thought and emotion (Depraz, Varela, & Vermersch, 2003). Such intentional mental training has been shown to induce functional neurobiological changes.

    A study by Lutz and colleagues found marked alterations in the synchronization of neurons as an effect of long-term training in Buddhist loving-kindness meditation, a practice which is thought by some practitioners to promote a state of unconditional compassion and benevolence (Lutz, Greischar, Rawlings, Ricard, & Davidson, 2004). Neural synchrony of the type observed in this study may be indicative of coherent and integrated psychological functioning (Williams et al., 2005). The synchronization of brain activity found in some of the practitioners sampled, whose experience ranged between 10,000 and 50,000 hours spent in meditation, was higher than any previously reported in the literature. Such increased neural synchrony was observed not only during the meditative state, but also when the practitioners were not meditating, suggesting that long-term mental practice can induce lasting, trait-level changes possibly mediated by structural modifications to the brain (Begley, 2006).

    Other research has documented changes in neurobiological function as a result of mindfulness meditation, the practice of cultivating a present-centered, metacognitive awareness, “a naturalistic state wherein consciousness transcends its content to rest upon the dynamics of its own processes” (Garland, 2007). A recent study bySlagter et al. (2007) compared attentional performance of a group of experienced meditators participating in a 3-month mindfulness meditation retreat to that of a novice control group who received a 1-hour meditation class and were asked to meditate 20 minutes daily for one week. Relative to controls, experienced meditators evidenced significant improvements in attentional performance that correlated with alterations in brain activity. This cognitive enhancement was maintained 3 months after formal meditation practice, providing suggestive evidence that mental training can stimulate neuroplastic changes in the adult human brain (Slagter et al., 2007).

    While the work of Slagter et al. and Lutz et al. provide tentative support for meditation-induced neuroplasticity, neither study examined structural brain changes per se. However, two structural MRI investigations comparing the brains of experienced meditators to control subjects matched in sex, age, race, and years of education found that years of meditation experience correlated with increased cortical thickness in brain areas where visceral attention (e.g. right anterior insula) and self-awareness (e.g. left superior temporal gyrus) have been localized (Holzel et al., 2008; Lazar et al., 2005). These empirical investigations of meditation suggest that mental training may stimulate structural alterations reflective of neuroplasticity.

    The finding that experience and training can lead to the development of new neural connections has key implications. For example, persons suffering from what was once thought to be permanent brain injury can heal through rehabilitation designed to stimulate the damaged area, such as in the case of stroke (Taub et al., 2006).

    I wasn't constraining my comment purely to this thread. Your inability to properly debate without resorting to character assassination and ad hominem​ pervades every thread.

    As a non-scientist, by your definition, I am not worthy to disagree with you.

    if that's what you mean to say then you have no idea what you're talking about.

    i have a friend who has paranoid schizophrenia and when he forgets or refuses for whatever reason to medicate himself, he loses the ability to speak coherently in a way that will allow people to extract what he's trying to say. couple that with his intellect and his creativity and you have someone who comes up, nonstop, with ideas about the world that have no validity, and the math to prove it too (tehe). he's filled at least 13 spiral-bound notebooks with numbers, symbols and explanations that ultimately add up to nothing. try explaining that to him in the state he's in and he'll accuse you of treason essentially.

    like my friend, you have pet theories and the research to back it up. unlike him, you can't wake up out of it and find you're making things up again.

    My character assassination!? you guys called me bullshit, crankjob, woohooo magical nonsense, saying multple times that something is wrong with me just for being an anthropologist and having an open mind to other cultures, which actually has been proven right as well. Calling me a liar many times as well as other attacks and insults upon my character. You yourself just called me a joke merely for saying I did not have the time at that moment. Also calling my actual proven and verifiable post yammering. Others called the same valuable and true post of mine pure drivel on more then one occasion. And yeah i feel justified in saying you guys are not scientists being so full of bias, insults, attacks, etc. Saying I know nothing at all many times when i come right back ,i said i would, and gave you the proof, as well as in the saem outcomes in other threads.

    And not to mention you think it is ok for you to attack my character injustly so btw, all the while I can not. I now 'attack' your character again in calling you a hypocrite.

    But hey, I am going to stop with the pointless attacks, and trolling behaviours now, I am done. If anyone wants me answer any questions I will do so glady, and as well as I will try to find creditable sources for synchironicity and attraction and manifestation for you as well for the time being. Later tho, when I have more time. I do think Carl Jung is a great and creditable source imo tho, but will seek some empiracal evidence for you, even though my original post does not refer to these sciences (unless you can see them for what they are then you can see that they are present, but i do not need to claim this to prove my original thread and so I won't)

    Please stop attacking now and stay on the point of this thread please.

    I have it many corners of the world actually, but you are just seeking another angle to discredit me again, and seek to prove your self right only yet again. I see you. I have posted in many different cultural forums, many different memory and alheimers research and support centers. Psychology databases and have passed my findings to other scientists in other fields as well, as I have already stated. My research and findings aids, many forms of mental health problems and even physical illness' and not just memory disorders.

    you're putting an agenda into my words where there is none. i only wish to read what you have been researching because you have to agree that a claim as "My research and findings aids, many forms of mental health problems and even physical illness'" is an incredibly bold one and deserves to be addressed.

    I have posted my proof already to you. that is that. i have made nothing up, but if want to be technical I CAN make things up and make them real too if I want. After all the imagination is one of our greatest tools - Albert Einstein.

    Now why would I want to leave or wake up from what is valuable, proven, and better then the past ways? i want to move forward, and not backwards, advance myself and others. Heal illness not create illness.

    I post something, you guys attacked it and myself, I posted evidence, proof, and valid experimentation of my findings, and now you say I need to wake? up??

    You pretend that you are somehow a qualified researcher in a valid field and that your comments have merit because they are backed by solid evidence and the support of your fellows.

    None of that is true.

    You're a troll because you defend your arguments by telling other people they are not real scientists, they are ignorant, they are biased, or they are unqualified to engage in debate with you. If all else fails, you resort to the victim card.

    YOU created the debate and it is therefore up to YOU to support it in the face of scrutiny. In academia, most of us undergo this defense to get a degree. Which leads me to believe you have very little experience in academia and, thus, very little experience conducting ACTUAL scientific research. To be blunt, I find your suggestion that you are involved in a legitimate science (some of us actually are) to be insulting as you don't appear to have undergone any critique from peers or any real scientific rigour. Instead, you rely on the only adjacently relevant work of others and your own bad attitude to defend you. Were you to pursue actual academic approval for your ideas, you would likely be reduced to a blubbering mass, curled up in the fetal position in the corner of the room.

    Right right, more attacks and more trolling, and even attacking my name this time and making assumptions about it too. wow.

    As I said before, in regards to my actual seriousness, I would prefer to remain on topic and stop the attacks and insults, trolling. And so please guys be serious yourselves and if you have questions in regards to the point of this thread ask them, and if you need explanations I will be glad to give them. No more trolling please. Yes, I am serious.

    If you need correlations between the studies and direct evidence I have provided I will show you how they connect. If you need clarifycation of the technical data within the National Library of medicine I will give them to you as well. If you want to question or challenge one of my initial statements made in my original post, asking for evidence of any statement I have made i will gladly do so.

    Yes it true. I gave you the link and placed the direct references for you three times already. and there will be more to come. You just ignored it every time. As I said if you wish to challenge it feel free to do so. But merely saying that it is not true does not make it so. The evidence and truth is in the post already that i gave you guys. Feel free to ask for evidence of any statement i have made, or anything that needs explaining in the studies and research I provided you with. It's all in there.

    I already have. Many posts ago. My 'trolling' was saying that scientists should not be biased upon approaching things, and have an open mind before hand. So to not not affect the outcome with their observational energies. This is also scientifically proven, and is the basics of science itself. A purely scientific state of mind.

    But that said everyone has trolled me many times, with direct insults many times. Why should you guys be any different or better than I?

    I am not attacking you, not insulting you, and not trolling in any way. And I will not.

    And to add on my comments about not being real scientists, is because of these valid arguments here.. as my anthroplogical study of tolec wisdom was thrown into the trash from being magical.

    If you were a scientist you would study all things, including magic. Paganism and wicca etc etc. Anthropology is a science, a social science. Why would you have a board here called anthropology if it were not? You think you can just shove away entire civilizations and think they do not exist? Do not matter? Are not worth studying or learning of them, from them? You think the millions upon millions of magical practitioners are merely lying to you about their existence? Lying to you about magic? You think Infinity does not exist?? because that is what the sorcerer's here seek and find, and even explain rationally in their teachings. Every hear of asymptotic power law? So you think anthropology should ignore all magic religions, all cultures who believe in it and practice it? Buddhists who believe in Sidhi? I could go forever. Mayan who also preformed 'magic' in the form of illusionary reality, and ream states? Alternate perceptions of reality? No wonder you can not seee infinity, you only accept one small limited way, and close the doors to everything else. Even denying youro own sciences. Foolish

    To the comment that magical cultures are a problem.. i said..

    Looking down your nose at billions of people, thinking they are a problem and you are not one. Your way is right, and their way is wrong.

    the comment referring to the wooohooo magical garbage of toltec indian culture i said this

    Recent research on neuroplasticity and psychosocial genomics lends compelling support to this perspective by elucidating mechanisms through which psychosocial forces shape neurobiology.
    Even the imagination included.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2933650/

    This is actually exactly what these wooohooo dumb old indians knew and taught for at least a thousand years before you western scientists had any clue, all the while you thought the brain was hard-coded.

    Wow, you could say, if you were a brain-dead scoentist that this is MAGICAL. Yet if you studied magic, as I do, and some real scientists have, you would come to the same conclusion about it that many already have, including toltecs themselves. Magic is actually just something beyond your understand and reasoning to logically accept until you expand your finite reasoning in order to understand the science of it. Which is why many acient people would consider a computer to be magic.

    Perhaps you if amazing and well studied, unbiased scientists should be open to other cultures and stop throwing them in the garbage and laughing at them, looking down your noses at them, and learn something from their actual wisdom.

    which was called trolling by you guys. despite the attacks insults, claims of me being a liar etc etc etc

    Wrong. Magic is beyond the scope of science. The only study of it would be to understand why some people feel the need to believe it exists. That would be psychology.

    You continue to fail to make your case.

    if magic were real and measurable (such that we can scientifically understand it) we wouldn't call it magic.

    science can understand the impact of beliefs such as in magic on a person's behavior on an individual and societal scale. it can theorize as to how such beliefs can arise in different contexts. it cannot explain something that isn't real or is defined such that it is out of reach of measurement.

    There are many studies on magic actually. And I have been studying it for a long time. It is not beyond study nor verification either. It may be beyond your scope of reasoning and will however it is not beyond many other people's understanding including myself. Many fields of anthropological studies also observe these things, and record their findings, which is called social sciences, or anthropology. yes you can study why people believe in it, you can study the will also, and many cultures say it is the true will that casts these forms into reality. The act of controlled intentions, and visualizations included. upon which can all be studied from various fields including psychology, the power of now, the power of belief, the power of focused thought the list is endless, and is studied and researched and verified by many, including myself. Their are many different forms of reasoning involved as well, many forms of logic. You can however find this form yourself if you ever care to study it in detail.

    However you failed to make YOUR case, and are still saying I failed to make mine in regards to my original topic, which the evidence is still present and awaiting your observations, and any questions you may have about it in order to verify for yourself. yet again you just ignore it all and say it failed when it fact it didn't at all.

    Back to the topic please. If you want to discuss magic perhaps make another thread, but the thread I made was removed, which was about ancient indian cultures that practiced Shamanism and sorcery. Which is also a very reasonable approach to magic and logical understanding of it's workings. Different from other forms of magic practiced by other cultures. many are different, and i study many of them, as well as verify.

    The toltec understanding and form of 'magic' practiced by it's sorcerer's and shamans, is actually able to explain this quite easily for you. They also form reasoning from exploring the unknown, their own form of science actually. They would tell you that since you hold the position of awareness and perception that see magic as not real, and not measurable, then that is the state of reality you witness and intend with your will to form into your awareness and perception. The call it the assemblage point of reality, where your awareness, knowledge aligns to form your reality. They seek to find many positions of reality, awareness, and enhance their awareness without becoming stuck in any one position. They learn to suspend their reasoning and logic in order to surpass it and find further possibilities beyond it. they consider the unknown awareness, or unknown forms of reality to be much more encompassing then the known awareness they have yet found.

    They would say that westerners like yourself do not see nor experience magic because of your current position of awareness upon which you stated. trapped within your current system of reasoning that sustains your perception of reality. It's like this a mathematician learns of math, and when he does he can see it in everything. Just one example.

    Just like the evidence I provided on how people with no mnemonic memory do not access it, since the pathways have not been made available to them. they have no activated that awareness and perception, just as most of westerners brains are rarely used, or have not yet been developed.

    I have already given you valid empirical evidence that clearly supports all of my findings.
    Even though you guys have failed to challenge these findings, and seem afraid to challenge them directly, you still make your invalid claims. Since I have given you the data already it is your turn to challenge it if you care to do so. That means it is your turn in this debate. You guys insulted my debating skills and yet you seem not to understand this. You have challenged nothing as of yet.

    Did you see the two new posts i added into your forum regarding nanoscience discoveries? They were not present in your forum before hand as far as I saw when I searched for them.

    Who said anything about being the professor from Guelph?

    are you OK?

    I am just trying to share with you some new revolutionary discoveries.

    I knew of these things long before they were published. Although they took the silver further then I knew of.

    How do you know what to probe for in your questioning? And what is it you are seeking here?

    You entirely missed my point for someone with so many degrees hey. My point which I thought was pretty clear is that you'd be surprised at how many fields are subsets of nanoscience as well as quantum science. My post was referring to the other guy's refusal to believe I studied so many fields. And to mention I didn't think they taught 8th graders how subsets apply to folding space and traveling faster then light using 0, negative value, nothingness, contraction, or absence. Which is a subset as well, utilizing advanced knowledge of both process of fusion and fission. But being so smart yourself you must of already knew that I imagine.

    Oh really now!! haha! Nanosciences studies reality on a nanoscale, as well re-patterning or reformulating these patterns. Just think about how many fields that enters into dude, and get serious. Nanosciences apply to many fields including molecular physics, quantum physics, materials science, chemistry and synthetic chemisty, biology and biochemistry, biological and chemical self-assembly, biomedical engineering, energy research, environmental sciences, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, biotechs, neurology, nanomedicine, nanolithography etc, the list continues too. Many of these fields also have subfields within them as well, such nanonephrology and many others.

    Dywyddyr you should think things through a little before you post. For someone with so many degrees you can not even see that the study of reality on a nano scale implies many different fields? Think about it everything and within everything is nano-scaling.

    Yeah, bearing in that "nanosciences" is not yet a fully-established discipline per se any claims you make about it are almost entirely a figment of your imagination.
    While it may well expand and start to cover other fields you're being highly premature in claiming all of the above as subsets of nanoscience.

    Dywyddyr you should think things through a little before you post
    Why?
    You obviously don't.

    PS nano-f*cking-nephrology?
    Because kids have really small kidneys, right?

    You seem very dumb to me. Sorry to say. Do you not see that when you look into the kidneys, you can see the structure of it and study it on a nano-scale? It doesn't matter how big anything is, what matter is nanosciences is that even large things can be studied on a nanoscale. Do you understand yet? Like graphyte, pretty weak really, but within graphyte is hidden a pure carbon molecule, on a nanoscale, hence graphene, which is a nanomaterial that is 100 times stronger then steel and lighter then a feather. It has new revolutionary applications. Did you see the other revolutionary nanobreakthroughs? There are many and it is a very lucrative field. unlimited potential.

    No field is fully established, we are always learning new things in every field. But yes nanoscience IS a fully accepted valid field and it is studied and practiced in many Universities around the world.

    Just do the research yourself if you want to know the truth. Check out the universities and see for yourself that this field enters into all these fields. Do a search. You keep saying I am delusional and these things are figments of my imagination eh. That's sad, You can see for yourself that these fields are not claims, but very real. As is your unawareness of them.

    It's history started in 1959 and lead into the early 2000's when it became a very popular science in which is now an atomically precise manipulation of matter, and many forms of reality. It's an amazing field I find and I love it, the potential for it is unlimited.

    remember it's not the study of just small things, but nanoscale patterns, molecules and reactions within them (studied on a nanoscale)
    It doesn't matter to me tho, you can it's all just lies, you say that about everything.

    Nanoscience and nanotechnology are the study and application of extremely small things and can be used across all the other science fields.

    Not valid eh? Not accepted? Not a true science?

    Tell it to the nobel prize winner in physics, Konstantin Novoselov who won for discovering a nanomaterial called graphene.
