Transcript of Psychokinesis
Using the Brain
biofeedback and EEG patterns
learn how to control body's functions
control EEG patterns
individuals can produce certain patterns
Niels Birbaumer in Germany
monkeys and biofeedback
Emory University in Atlanta
Kaku's Other Ideas
psychokinetically designed home
room-temperature superconductor that coats walls, tiny electromagnets inside household objects
What does it mean if something is impossible?
Ideas that can be developed in this century and abide by the laws of physics
Ideas that might be realized on a scale of thousands to millions of years
Technologies that violate the laws of physics
The ability to move objects by thinking about them
claimed to bend spoons with his mind
revealed by The Amazing Randi in 1973
Problems with Studying Psychokinesis
gravity is only attractive
law of conservation of energy
The BrainGate System
Michio Kaku's Ideas
What if we had a portable computer?
What if the wires were made wireless?
So what's the catch?
chip can remain for two years
can be safely removed
spiking from neurons can be decoded
useful for paralyzed victims
just have to think of an action
connection between muscle and computer
complexity of the brain
Kaku, Michio. "Psychokinesis." Physics of the Impossible. New York: Doubleday, 2008. 88-102. Print.
Is the levitation of objects possible?
substances that have no electrical resistance
exhibit perfect diamagnetism
metals and metalloids that show some conductivity at room temperature
metallic compounds and alloys that exhibit superconductivity
transition from normal to superconducting state excludes magnetic field from interior
Thoughts for the Future...
