I've got a Conspiracy Theory.
Well, I've got a lot of conspiracy theories, but this isn't really one of them because it doesn't involve anyone conspiring. Anyhoo.
Our brains are electro-chemical devices. It produces an electro-magneticl field, that we can measure. We know that electricity and magnetism can
affect each other. If I had the free time, I'd like to build a helmet that could record a brain's magnetic field, and then play it back the brain and
see if it could trigger memories or feelings or something.
Now, Unified Field Theory suggests that magnetism and gravity are simply different forms of the same force. If that's true, then gravity should have
a similar effect on the brain as magnetism. Not as strong, because gravity is a weaker force. But, Newton's equations tell us that gravity is an
infinite force. Any two objects in the universe that have mass have a gravitational attraction to each other. It may be infinitesimally small, but
it's never zero.
So, if gravity could affect our minds, which forces would have the most influence? #1 Earth, of course. But for most of us, the effects of Earth's
gravity are pretty consistent. It may vary slightly for astronauts, pilots, submariners, etc.
Someone could check my math, but I'm pretty sure that #3 would be the Sun, because of it's mass. Once again, that would be fairly consistent for most
people on Earth, varying between day and night.
The most variable gravitational force for anyone on Earth would be the Moon. After all, the variable gravitational force of the Moon is what gives us
tides. But we would still be affected by things like the black hole at the center of the galaxy, although the effects of objects that distant would
only change over long periods of time.
I guess this could be considered a pseudo-scientific explanation for astrology. The Sun, Moon, and planets could have an effect on human behavior
based on their mass, distance, and angular direction in relation to each other, creating a net gravitational force on human minds on the Earth through
the sum of their vectors. Who knows? It might even affect genetics.
Anyway, something to ponder. I just hope I got my "affects" and "effects" right.
