Seems likely that some intense dreaming is going on. A lot of psychoactive drugs are known to potentiate dreams... That is, make them more intense, vivid, powerful, etc. So one of the most powerful psychoactive experiences on this planet, anesthesia, would definitely fit the bill would it not? I would be interested to see some hypnosis experiments done on these patients. Such intense experiences would probably give some valuable insight for what is happening in the brain while we dream, if that is indeed what is happening. Hmm, maybe some REM tests would be useful?

edit: Also, I gotta say, it makes me smile to know that we are finally getting to the point we are understanding psychoactives in great detail, and thus respecting them for the powerful chemicals that they are. It reminds me that the truth always comes out in the end, even if it happens to be a turtle about it.

BTW this is far from the first time neurological functions have been recorded by a visual representation. This article is woo, pseudo science at best, laughable. It feeds only dreams and dreamers.


Someone's an angry skeptic...

Hmmm, it could however increase our level of awarness, or as some would say gain psychic powers

But we carry on functioing even though we are unconsious with up to 60-70% brain activity which is A) amazing
B) could mean we can also be able use a higher amount of brain capacity whilst consious. How ever still a very interesting subject to all, we need to find more about before saying it's not possible.


Yes psychic power like telekinesis (I used it) or other things like that can be activated.

If you notice, most of the activity is in the right hemisphere, where the creative thinking goes onwards.

Yes Whilst awake that is.
But when He is asleep it differs throughout the time.
If we could control more of our brain I wonder what we could get now with
that in mind, the part of our brain that is being used whilst we are being awake
is for creativity so if we can use this so efficently so we could with others
if we learnt to. Unless we can't

It makes one wonder if there really is not something to dreaming and visions. Is it our mind just going ape crazy or is it really putting our thoughts into a visual form for us to understand?

Perhaps our soul is sent to another dimension and the enviornment we are in
is the other dimension so we are actually somewhere else, however we may ot fully
be capable to travel yet. So we only transfer abit and then have to return to our phsyical bodies,
thats why we can actually visualise in our physical body towards the end of our sleep.

If they could somehow find a way to stimulate our conscious decisions while in a dream state, we could enable at will lucid dreaming..controlled dreaming, and eventually dream programming and the like (like the total recall comment earlier).

Pretty awesome concept...like watching the first transistor being created and speculating on the tech that can be designed from that.

Find a way to network together friends for shared dreaming, mix in programmed dream structures and such and voila, you have full blown virtual reality with the most powerful computer designed (so far)

I wonder if the brain is taking all the information it gathered from our senses while awake, including information we are not consciously aware is being absorbed, and "post processing" it so to speak.

Your hypothesis has been proven true by many psychology experiments.

Information we are not consciously aware of (like flashing pictures too fast for us to see) is still comprehended by our subconscious.

Actually, I kinda thought the same thing. When I first read the thread title I was surprised, because I thought I had seen this in my Physiological Psychology class, so I didn't see how it could be new unless they meant for that exact particular type of scan.

Also, unfortunately it doesn't appear to be true that we use only a small percentage of our brain. Here is an article about it, if anyone is interested. SciAmer LINK

hmm....I read some of it because there is a fat wall of text but,
it's putting together evolution to explain. I personally don't think we
come from animals, there is worlds of difference between me and
an ape, I refuse to be lead into think I come from an ape because
I don't.

Well if you go further back, you are actually a decedent of a hydrogen atom, of which take a myriad of different atomic fusion paths. In short sir, you are actually made of stardust.

Well,Jumping Jehoshaphat, that is incredible, there is nothing that we are not capable of accomplishing, but someone or something is still controlling the switchboard.

We are limited, you can move mountains.

I wish I could express what I see.

I agree, we don't even belong on this planet.

What I think is neat is when people are under anesthesia and they start talking foreign languages or accents they shouldn't know.....

They should do a Documentary on it and put it on the Discovery Channel.
