  1. All experts are totally wrong about thinking process.
    While I was doing a figure on twelve huge brain cell fossils (Figure 1) found on Mars, it occurred to me that I should write about how all experts in neurology, etc. are totally wrong about the actual processes of thinking, feeling, recognition, etc. of all humans.
    Modern experts believe thinking happens in brains. In fact, brains don’t think anything. Brains relay electrical inputs to mind, which then does all the thinking and issues all the action orders in electrical pulses to brains.
    So, there is a loop between brains and minds in the thinking process. Brains act like a telephone switchboard only, doing no thinking at all. Mind does all the thingking, all the feeling, etc. Mind power equals to the power of a computer as large as the Earth, but human mind is around human heart and invisible to any human eyes or instruments.
    Figure 1: shows 12 brain cell fossils found on “Red Island” by NASA’s MER Opportunity on Sol 2371:

    Brains don’t memorize, recognize, feel or think.
    All memorization,recognition,feeling and thinking are done in our minds, not in our brains. There are two travel directions in the loop between brain and mind:
    First direction: From sensory organ to brain to spine column to mind;
    Second direction: From mind (which produces electrical pulse) to spine column to brain to muscles
    Part of the trip in the loop uses “wireless communication” like cellphones do. I know very little about neurology. So, don’t ask me neurological questions.
