Do not send Humans to Mars!

I conclude if you send a Human to Mars, their brain will become out of sync , a frequency offset, and will be suspended in time. (become dormant).

Explain please what facts, observations and arguments lead to your conclusion.

''At the root of all our thoughts, emotions and behaviours is the communication between neurons within our brains. Brainwaves are produced by synchronised electrical pulses from masses of neurons communicating with each other.

Brainwaves are detected using sensors placed on the scalp. They are divided into bandwidths to describe their functions (below), but are best thought of as a continuous spectrum of consciousness; Delta being slow, loud and functional - to Gamma being fast, subtle, and complex. It is a handy analogy to think of Brainwaves as musical notes - the low frequency waves like a deeply penetrating drum beat, while the higher frequency brainwaves are like a subtle high pitched flute.

Our brainwaves change according to what we’re doing and feeling. When slower brainwaves are dominant we can feel tired, slow, sluggish, or dreamy. The higher frequencies are dominant when we feel wired, or hyper-alert.''

And considering ''time dilation'' and oscillation change .( the astronauts bio logical clock may slow to dormant.).

and considering the inverse square law and light weakening at distance.

I feel the brain wave function is also synchronised by EMR from the Sun and distance may have effect on brain waves.

also considering astronauts report observing ''flash of lights'' in space, I consider this evidence of frequency offset of the constant to the brain.

People have travelled to the moon and back, and circumnavigated the earth umpteen times, with no such effect.

The flashes of light are Cerenkov radiation in the aqueous humor.

There is no evidence that being screened from solar radiation has any effect on the electroencephalogram. Don't confuse circadian rhythm with brain waves.

The moon orbits the Earth and relative to space is close.   The uncertainty principle is measurement, do we send a human to measure it?

Is there a distance that the human clock would slow to a stop by gravitational or brain function waves slowing?

It is evidential that when in the dark , the human brain wave for sight slows down.

A person in dark isolation can go insane.

Does brain waves increase when looking directly at a high wattage light source?

No, it is a misnomer for the inherent simultanous indeterminacy of position and momentum.

You don't meet many blind nutters. I think it's more to do with isolation than darkness.

Brain activity is to some extent modulated by light but specific spectra are significant - daylight is much more effective than bright incandescent light in controlling serotonin production.

You haven't provided a cogent logical argument that concludes this. All you've done here is make statements about the brain.

For example; you say that the brain will become "out of sync" as if the brain was/is required to be in sync with something, which it is not. There is no "frequency offset" to speak of and no mechanism for it to "be suspended in time."

The webpage that you site says

While true its not relevant to your argument. Brainwaves are merely the collective electromagnetic waves in the brain which originate from neural oscillations:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neural_oscillation
Quote
Neural oscillation is rhythmic or repetitive neural activity in the central nervous system. Neural tissue can generate oscillatory activity in many ways, driven either by mechanisms within individual neurons or by interactions between neurons. In individual neurons, oscillations can appear either as oscillations in membrane potential or as rhythmic patterns of action potentials, which then produce oscillatory activation of post-synaptic neurons.
A simple analogy would be the insides of a computer. Individual tracks on the boards are made with conducting material such as copper. The signals which travel to and from such chips as memory chips and the CPU. However if one were to place a computer in a gravitational field where gravitational time dilation was strong compared to that of Earth then not only would it not do any physical damage whatsoever but it wouldn't even interrupt normal operations of the computer. The signals from one track don't even interfere with signals of other tracks.

So your argument is baseless.
