Alpha, Beta, Cerebral, Delta… */waves…*

Previously at the LoL

*Pretty! Thanks, Clicky… /pats snout…*

Red Frank over at MEROVEE put up a new post last night, that touched on things I covered from the last John Lamb Lash talk two weeks ago. Namely AI, D Waves and Quantum Computing. He was inspired, no doubt, by the breathless news yesterday from NASA that Google AI had been instrumental in the discovery of a new planet circling a distant star…

I DMed Cade on Twitter, as I thought the post might interest him. I was a little surprised at the reply he gave…

Roob sends a link to Cade who has an unexpected reply

Beta waves were discovered and named by the German psychiatrist Hans Berger, who invented electroencephalography (EEG) in 1924, as a method of recording electrical brain activity from the human scalp. Berger termed the larger amplitude, slower frequency waves that appeared over the posterior scalp when the subject’s eyes were closed alpha waves. The smaller amplitude, faster frequency waves that replaced alpha waves when the subject opened his or her eyes were then termed beta waves.’

If you’ve looked at the Red Frank’s post, Dear Reader, you will see he brings up not only the ‘Observer Effect’ but also Stanley Kubrick. The wiki write-up on Beta Waves did the same for me. Observe

*Saved by the “Mandy situation”, Clicky? Interesting…*

Roob Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut in Beta Waves

Indeed I was thinking about Cade’s ‘Cosmic Corridors’ from the evening before, and travelling from/to points A (alpha) and B (beta)…

Cade poses Roob a question

… And then he mentioned ‘wrinkles’…

Cade and Roob discuss restrictions on space

*I believe he’s read the book, Clicky…*

Cade's wrinkles and Roob's brain

*/smirks… Wrinkles…*

*So the brain gif I used was dancing to ‘The Chicken Song’, Clicky? …/rolls eyes… Figures…*

Roob asks Cade about beta waves and the observer effect

We’ll have to explore seeing through our eyelids in the dark another time, Dear Reader. This post is quite long enough for now…

Have a Song 😉

      1. Don’t Overlook the Overlook !

        What does happen to the Observer Effect when it is being observed.

        And saw your comment about 2018 being the year of the Dog. And came across this on Netflix and at first glance I thought it said Roob Dog !

        1. In science, the term ‘observer effect’ means that the act of observing will influence the phenomenon being observed. What happens to the ‘observer effect when it is being observed? It, too, is influenced 😉
