Would a Human Brain Grow In a Square If It Were Grown in a Box - I Believe the Answer Might Be Yes

March 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 140

Can we grow add on brains, or configure a human brain in a different space? I believe so. I'd like to discuss this with you for moment, from a philosophical and theoretical biology stand point. You see, on or about June 20, 2011 I had written an interesting article titled; "Why Can't We Install an Add-on Carbon Nanotube Encased Brain Inside a Human Chest Cavity?" where I reasoned that it would be possible to build an add-on brain and attach it to the current human brain.

It also seems that since we can now grow brain tissue using stem cells in a Petri Dish that we can build an organic brain, allowing it to grow in any shape we wish. Okay so, before I get into my basic theory of why I believe that a human brain can grow in a square, or a sphere, I'd like to have you consider some other intriguing information;

First, go read an article in Neuroscience on March 29, 2012 titled; "Brain wiring a no-brainer? Scans reveal astonishingly simple 3D grid structure.

Second, go read an article titled; "Collapsible Buckliball a New Class of 3-D, Origami-like Structures," in Scientific Computing.

Third, go read an article from CNN on June 15, 2012 titled; "Japan corners the market on square fruit."

Fourth, go read an article in Gizmodo on March 29, 2012 titled; "The First 3D Model Of DNA Looks Like The Spinning Beach Ball Of Life," by Kristen Philipkoski.

Now then, let's ask why the human brain has folds in it? Could it be that it is trying to deal with the confines of the space within the skull, due to lack of capacity it has to find a way to keep growing, thus it folds onto itself, just as spherical DNA or the collapsible buckiball 3-D origami graphic - mathematically that makes sense now.

With regards to the watermelon, well, it's job is to grow and thus it must adapt to the space allotted, just as the roots of a house plant are confined in the pot it is in, there is no real choice in the matter, you see? When a brain has a tumor within the cranial capacity it is allotted it gets crowded out and tries to deal with being crowded out, thus it fights for space.

There was a Central American Ancient Indian Culture, which perhaps had modified their skulls or perhaps it was a genetic trait, we've found those fossil records now, slightly elongated skulls, with a cone like shape. The Cerebellum might be served better by being stretched out, or the primary visual cortex might be well served. Having additional space, perhaps in a square or 3-D Octagon might serve several areas in a similar way, allowing those parts of the brain to expand.

Does more space = more organic computer power? Some believe so, although density (increased by more connections) is also said to be important - what if you had both - more room and more density, a super human brain if you will or an add on brain available?

What if a brain had more space, all it needed in fact?

What if it had a square to grow into? Many people are said to be thinking inside the box? Maybe a boxy brain might have merit after all? Please consider all this and think on it from a purely theoretical and philosophical perspective of course.
