The beautiful similarity of the brain and the universe
There are many similarities between the universe and our organism. That is why there is a question of whether the universe is part of a living organism; or a brain cell or neuron of a higher living being. Also, we can think that we are created in the image and likeness of our Creator. When analyzing the human being we can say that we are formed of cells and these in turn formed by microorganisms. An image of a galaxy can be seen as if you were observing an image of a brain cell.
Taking into account the aforementioned, all the existing connections in the universe could be explained, just as there are connections between brain cells. You can see the planets as if they were interconnected cells, rotating around a sun and being inside a galaxy. The galaxies together form constellations, which can be seen as more complex cells, which are divided into the previous sub-cells.
It may seem a bit far-fetched, but by looking at the images and their similarities we can focus on better understanding the concepts of the microcosm and macrocosm. Let’s try to see and compare the images of a cell and a nebula of the universe.
Planet Earth has shown us that it is a living being that feels and acts. Observe the reaction of nature to pollution, etc. and when on the contrary, we flow according to it. So the universe can be considered to contain all the elements that make up a biological organism, where they are interconnected by the same source: mind and brain. The brain has hundreds of billions of neurons and the universe contains billions of stars and galaxies and both form intricate networks.
Analysis and Investigations
Franco Vazza and Alberto Feletti, an astrophysicist and a neurologist, compared both systems and through studies, they were able to determine not only the similarity in quantitative terms but also, in the similarity of their structures and organization. Through a simple look, you can see the enormous similarity of the structure of a cosmic network and a microphotograph of the brain. Through statistical analysis, it has been verified that these systems present quantitative similarities, not only appearance.
One way to compare the cosmic system and the brain is to measure how predictable its behavior is. They are equated by counting the number of bytes of information needed to design the simplest computer program capable of making such predictions in both cases. The results coincided in a marked way. In other words, it was found that the amount of information that can be stored in the human brain (the memory of the whole life of a human being) can be encoded in the same way as the distribution of galaxies in the universe.
David Jou, scientist and poet, professor of physics at the University of Barcelona and translator of Stephen Hawking’s latest work, “El Gran Diseño”, published in Spanish in 2010; He made a publication, “Brain and Universe, Two Cosmologies”, where he starts from the observation of the global structures of the universe and the brain.
Towards the end of his book, he tells us that there was much talk about the brain and little about the mind because it was essentially a book of cosmology and biophysics. But, Jou tells us, when talking about the brain and the universe you cannot stop referring to the mind and consciousness. He says it’s like a bridge between the brain and the universe.
Consciousness is the bridge from the brain to the universe, on the one hand, the conscience consciousness brings us closer to the cosmos in its immensity, and to intuit that without its great extension we would not exist. According to Jou, we are an evolutionary process that unites the present with the past. The ALL includes the present and the past. For example, when observing the starry sky, the stars that form the same constellation can actually be at distances and the light that reaches us now, like a clear image, was emitted a long time ago.
Conclusions and Development of Concepts
In short, the brain is one of the most complex systems, comparable only to the universe. So, if the universe looks like a set of neurons or is comparable to our brain, it can lead us to think or to ask, if we are inside someone else’s brain. Franco Vazza and Alberto Feletti find similarity not only in appearance but in a quantitative way between the brain and the universe.
For Jou, the brain and the universe, in addition to their similarities in appearance and in the quantitative, understand that both suggest two different ways of considering reason. The reason tfor the human to have the capacity to understand laws and reason as a set of intelligible laws. According to Einstein, the most incomprehensible thing in the universe is that it is understandable. Judge yourself and develop your own judgment, following your assessment in this regard, based on the information presented here and the expansion of it.
