Hi Heikki,

Welcome.

Unfortunately your link is not working.

I am not an engineer or scientist myself but it is my undertsanding that our brains are subject to a whole variety of natural radiations anyway and from the magnetic radiation of our own planet etc etc.


Men are the same as women.... just inside out !!

I think we can ask questions about how biological systems generally deal with the future, and how the human mind in the abstract thinks about the future, but I'm not sure that we can really answer how an individual brain cell deals with the future.

In general, we deal with the future as a reflection of the past (i.e. we learn and store patterns pertaining to the past, and we then replay those patterns in the present, and expect that the bit of that pattern that has not yet been fulfilled by the present must be fulfilled by the future).  The future is thus, as far is the human mind is concerned, merely an aspect of our memory.
