A circadian rhythm /sɜrˈkeɪdiən/ is any biological process that displays
an endogenous, entrainable oscillation of about 24 hours. These rhythms
are driven by a circadian clock, and rhythms have been widely observed in
plants, animals, fungi and cyanobacteria. The term circadian comes from the
Latin circa, meaning "around" (or "approximately"), and diem or dies, meaning
"day". The formal study of biological temporal rhythms, such as daily, tidal,
weekly, seasonal, and annual rhythms, is called chronobiology. Although circadian
rhythms are endogenous ("built-in", self-sustained), they are adjusted (entrained)
to the local environment by external cues called zeitgebers, commonly the most important
of which is daylight.
Could these crystals use their motion in a variety of ways to transduce the geomagnetic field into signals that can be processed by the nervous system?
The presence of membrane-bound biomineral magnetite, which has been shown to have a biological origin, and the implication that some kind of mechanical coupling must take place between each compass magnetite particle and a mechanoreceptor, or at least a functionally equivalent mechanism allowing the position of the particle to be monitored by a sensory organelle in the body, is unique. Research has also found that the magnetite is produced by the cells of the organism when needed. Forms of advanced physical intelligence can directly tap into this information if they have a crystalline network within their brain cavity.
Scientists are now asking the fundamental question: What is magnetite doing in the human brain? In magnetite-containing bacteria, the answer is simple: Magnetite crystals turn the bacteria into swimming needles that orient with respect to the earth's magnetic fields. Magnetite has also been found in animals that navigate by compass direction, such as bees, birds, and fish, but scientists do not know why the magnetite is present in humans, only that it is there.
In the human brain, pyramidal cells are present and arranged in layers in the cortex of the two cerebra. The pyramidal cells act as electro-crystal cells immersed in extra-cellular tissue fluids, and seem to operate in the fashion of a liquid crystal oscillator in response to different light commands, or light pulses which, in turn, change the orientation of every molecule and atom within the body.
