Curriculum vitae of Dr. Pallathadka Keshava Bhat

 
The Vortex Solar System proved by Dr. Keshava Bhat. This means the end of the academic, helio-centric "clock work face" orbit theory, invented by the "catholic military priest" nicolas copernicus and later cherished by newton, brahe, kepler, galileo, einstein, hawking, sagan and the rest of their academic ilk

The proof of Dr. Bhat's assertion that the outer planets can be seen throughout the year! The inner ones disappear in the 30 degree cone of illumination of the Sun, they do not pass behind it as claimed by academia. The two to three weeks the outer planets disappear is due to their being within the 30 degree cone of illumination of the Sun from an Earth bound perspective.
Definition of Heliacal Rising - Lit., rising with the Sun. When a planet or a star, after it has been hidden by the Sun's rays, becomes again visible.
          
Animation showing the changing aspect of Saturn's rings at various opposition dates from 1993 to 2020, with additional orbital and observational details. The image is shown with Celestial North up (note that astronomical telescopes will normally show images inverted).

The Note that Saturn's rings change their angle to our Earth bound observations, which is due to our mutual helical trajectories. If the planets orbited the Sun upon its ecliptic as academic clock work face diagrams claim, then this would not be remotely possible. The academic helio-centric Copernican model of the Solar System is kaput!

Note that if you imagine that the Earth is represented by the 12 green balls surrounding the Sun and project the Sun forward, past your computer screen, onto the tip of  a Vortex Cone which centers the helical paths of the planets which follow it, you will see the true dynamic motions of our Solar System.

The Vortex Solar System of the late and great,  Dr. Keshava Bhat, M. Sc., Ph.D., of  Manipal, India


This playlist explores the causes of the helical trajectory of our Solar System. Unfortunately the academics in the case "our Solar  System's Orbit" opted for an imaginary binary star theory. There is no other star as is clearly seen, so it is sad they did not trash this theory.

The reason we have a helical trajectory above and below the galactic ecliptic is because we are moving with other stars in a huge vortex arm of the galaxy which moves us above and below the galactic ecliptic in 25,625 year cycles for each hemisphere.
This  proves the helical trajectory of our Solar System which is what Dr. Keshava Bhat discovered with his personal observations of the Solar System from equatorial regions around the globe for a period of 40 years.

Our Solar System is a huge Vortex with the planets following the Sun, we are not orbiting it as quackademicians have been claiming since the time of Copernicus!


Also a must read!


Helical Helix :Solar System a Dynamic Process

Written by: Dr. Keshava Bhat

Figure 19b  page 35

This diagram demonstrates that the so-called tilting of the Earth's Axis is an illusion due to our position in the Master Vortex of the Sun above and below it's Ecliptic at peaks called solstices and twice a year as we intersect  the ecliptic at the Equinoxes. The illusion to our senses is created by a belief in academic clock work orbits on a flat plane, which would mean that the Earth would have to tilt to account for this process. According to Dr. Bhat the Earth is not tilting at all. It is following the Sun in a Vortex trajectory and the seasons are seen to change due to our position in relationship to the ecliptic plane of the Solar Vortex.


"If only one can pause for a while and think retrospectively, the formidable scientific empire erected through centuries is crumbling down". Dr. Bhat's, "Book 1998"(Chapter 4: Genetic Engineering: Gate to Heaven or Hell?)

       
The Sensational Spiral, Screwing, Solar System Spermatozoa like Spectacle of our Sun



Born in Pallathadka, South India on January 3 1940 and passed on into the higher realms
July 25th 2010, while vacationing in Yellow Stone Park. He was brought up in
constant touch with natural life by his parents, Pallathadka Subraya Bhat and
Lakshmi Amma. He is married to Devaki and has four children, all born in
Cumana, Venezuela.
Graduated from the Madras University in B.Sc ( 1959 ), M.Sc (1961) and
Ph.D in Botany (1966)
Worked as a Research Assistant in the Madras Presidency College, Madras
(1966-1968) and obtained the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research
(C.S.I.R) senior fellowship in 1968-1969.
Worked as a Senior Professor at the Universidad de Oriente, in Cumana,
Venezuela from 1969 to 1987 teaching Botany at both under graduate and
post graduate levels.
In addition to the large number of scientific papers presented both at national
and international levels, he has authored the following books.
Herbolario Tropical (1981)
Ayuda para el estudio de plantas con flores (1982)
Que Como y Cuando comer (1984)


Herbolario Tropical : Una manera sencilla de vivir mejor (1985)
Las Bases del Naturismo : Naturaleza y bienestar humano (1991)
El Sentido de la Vida , desde el embarazo hasta la muerte (1994)

It should be called the "Precession of the Ages of the Zodiac". It is the effect of our entire Solar system in it's serpent like, spiraling vortex trajectory below the apparently stationary Zodiac.

 



The so-called "precession of the equinoxes"
The academic explanation is that the Earth wobbles one revolution on it's axis approximately every 26,000 years. The Vortex Sun Model explains that the entire Solar  System moves in a vortical trajectory like a snake moving in 3 dimensions instead of a flat plane. As the Solar Snake moves either above or below the Galactic Ecliptic during the same time period stated above, it produces the illusion that the polar axis of our planet is wobbling if viewed only from an Earth bound perspective. When seen from outside the Solar System the Solar Snake is creating the so-called wobble due to it's vortical trajectory above and below the Galactic Ecliptic. A powerful mind can mentally image these processes and a space craft is not needed in order to gain this perspective. The Maya, Inca, Egyptians, Indians, Indonesians, Native Americans etc.. all knew this and represented the Solar Force as Serpents or twin opposing serpents (twin opposing vortices). 

Dr.Bhat is an ethnobotanist promoting Natural Health Reeducation
Movement. He has been teaching and training people on his philosophy in
different countries around the world. (Venezuela, Peru, Colombia, Brazil,
Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Mexico, Bolivia,
Guadaloupe, United States of America, Canada, France, Spain, Italy and
India.)
Was elected as a member of the committee of experts in medicinal plants of
developing countries during the first congress on medicinal plants held at
Arusha, Tanzania in 1990. This event was jointly sponsored by the World
Health Organization, South commission and the Government of Tanzania.
Participated in the Earth Summit held at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in June 1992.
Presented papers at the International conference on Nutrition and Health held
at Rome, Italy in December 1992.
Presented papers at the International conference on Medicinal Plants held at
Bangalore, India in February 1998.
He thinks that the only solution to combat the prevailing health problems in
the world, especially in the developing tropical countries is by means of self

PROJECT URAGUA
In the year 1999 after celebrating 30 years of the reeducation movement in
Venezuela, the govt of Venezuela through its establishments at Puerto Ordaz
kept at my disposal 1160 hectares of Tropical Rain Forests on the banks of
the Orinoco river at Delta Amacuro state. The main purpose was to develop
a sustainable village model for tropical forests around the world, without
damaging the natural resources . Sustainable agriculture, controlled
ecotourism, health villages, alternate energy generation with sustainable
technology and integrated education system were projected.
In the year 2001 the project had to be abandoned due to the absence of
human resources to carry on the activities.
ETHNOBOTANICAL GARDEN, CHARA CHAKRA
Established in 1979 at Cumana, Sucre state, Venezuela.
A collection of 170 tropical plants, most of them considered as weeds in the
agricultural science is grown for educational purposes and maintained.
Regular short term workshops on sustainable agriculture, nutrition ,
astrophysics, health and diseases , yoga, garment making are held. Free
orientation on health and nutrition is given to the general public and the
community every week . Trained people work on similar lines all over
Venezuela and in about 18 other countries based on the proposed system.
FUNDAVIME, a foundation registered in 1989 started functioning to
promote, publish, conduct international and national seminars and workshops
to demonstrate the sustainability of this method.
Sustainable farms are maintained on the same principles in Puerto Rico,
Dominican Republic, Colombia and other countries. Other centres are
being arranged progressively.
Efforts are made to establish an open University to promote all the ideas
related to this movement .
Proposed future projects
I personally feel a need to establish a New Science Research Institute in
India to train atleast 10 experts each in the following aspects of dynamic
science:
1 . Astrophysics
Shape and orbits of planets, space travel, climate, ozone layer, hurricanes,
sea level, origin and flow of rivers and many more related interesting topics.
2. Health and Nutrition
Treatment for tropical diseases like Leishmaniasis cutanea, Diabetes, Cancer,
Allergies, Asthma, Psoriasis, Vitiligo, Multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons disease,
Alzheimers disease, AIDS, Heart attack, Cerebro vascular accident, all kinds
of Gastrointestinal disorders etc . with local and natural resources.
3. Health care combined with ecotourism
4. Ethnobotany (Classical Phytochemistry not used)
5. Botany (With a totally different perspective)
6. Sustainable Agriculture, Nutrition, Art of cooking and eating healthy
food.
7. Life sciences and yoga ; Material Sciences.
8. Soft technology to obtain sustainable energy, clean air and water.
9. Dynamic science, Philosophy on science and think tank
10. Integral Education
New literature to support these lines of thought is under preparation. About
500 pages of manuscripts is ready for publication shortly.
At present, Dr. Bhat is engaged in conducting seminars and workshops in
several tropical countries in and around the Caribbean coast.

Excerpts from Dr. Keshava Bhat's Book
Helical Helix:
Solar System a Dynamic Process

"Ruthless negation of
other paradigms as superstition permitted the modern science and
technology to project itself as the sole representative of Science as
true knowledge. This is why in every school program the contents
are copied from the mainstream paradigm".

Newton’s first law supposes or assumes that “a body remains at
rest”. Today no celestial body is at rest. Therefore, this assumption
is not substantiated....” or if in motion it remains in uniform motion
with constant speed in a straight line unless it is acted on by an
unbalanced external force”.
A straight line on a globe is only theoretical and practically it
becomes a curve. Again a rotating Earth or any other celestial body
going its orbit is bound to encounter with external forces at every
instant and can never be expected to maintain a straight line.
If acceleration is to be considered, there is no possibility of starting
with zero at any time or at any place.
Therefore, the first law becomes obsolete.
The second law - when all bodies are in motion an “acceleration
produced by an unbalanced force acting on a body is proportional
to the magnitude of the net force and invariably proportional to the
mass of the body”
F=ma P=mg (weight=mass x gravity)
This also becomes obsolete because on a moving object where we
are located and form part of the system, how to determine its mass
or net force?
The situation is much clear in Heisenberg’s (1.927) uncertainty
principle “It is impossible to measure accurately both the positional
and momentum of a particle simultaneously”.
The third law of Newton states that “when ever one body exerts a
force upon a second body, the second body exerts a force upon the
first body. These forces are equal in magnitude and oppositely
directed.”
This statement assumes that both bodies are initially at rest. Also
assumes that one body moves faster than the other. The statement
assumes that the bodies move in straight lines. Each body moves in
n - dimension and the movement is continuous. This being the case
such assumptions become historic but obsolete.
The time of action of one body is totally different from the time of
any reaction.
Both the curvature of the space- time unit on one hand which flows
eternally as well as the impossibility of time flowing backward in
the reverse direction on the other are sufficient reasons to logically
discard the stated assumptions.


Daily observations are to be marked on a sheet of paper at a definite
time (local/ standard/ universal). Noon 12m is the best in the tropics;
especially in the Northern hemisphere.
A period of one year is the minimum time required for this study.
On cloudy / rainy days the observation may be difficult or impossible.
But observations adjacent to these days should be sufficient to bridge
the gaps.
For the observation of the lunar motion monthly readings are
necessary. In this case the phases of the moon and visibility at the
time of observation are factors to be taken into account.
By tracing the incident light on the paper a design is obtained
corresponding to the Ana lemma.
This proves that the planet always remains on one side of the Sun
throughout the year. If the planet were to go around the Sun six
months a year this observation is not possible.


The plane of displacement of our planet being equatorial the
planetary axis is parallel to the solar axis. This is true for all the
planets of the system.


Seen from the Northern hemisphere at any time of the year the Polaris
is observed in almost the same position probably because the star is
moving in the same direction. Our Sun follows a helical orbit around
the orbit of Polaris and one 360° year corresponds to 225.000
terrestrial years according to astronomical data. This permits the
relative position of other stars in the zodiac or in the sky, their
apparent disposition to explain equinoctial precession phenomenon.
The polar shift of the axis leads to the directional change of the
photosphere and this in turn explains the process.
Astronomical calculations made by the XVI, XVII and XVIII century
astronomers never imagined that this happened. They assumed that
Sun is stationary. No wonder all the calculations are made with such
assumptions and perhaps they have to be calculated once again.
It is also possible that the heliocentric orbits described for all the
planets are again assumptions with no confirmation by direct
measurement or observations.
The Greek observers like Aristarchus (About 270 B.C.) had
suggested a heliocentric orbit for planets and the credit goes to
Nicolas Copernicus (1514, 1.543) [Mikolaj Kopernik Polish
churchman] for confirming such hypothesis. Based on these ideas
or assumptions Tycho Brahe, Kepler and Newton arrived at
mathematical models to describe the same phenomenon.
All the planets known at that time are supposed to move along
heliocentric orbits along the equatorial plane with particular degrees
of axial inclinations for each one. The individual orbits are
considered to be elliptic


In a dynamic system the Earth should accelerate to go beyond the
Sun during six months but decelerate to return to the area behind
the Sun. The Sun is estimated to maintain about 20km/s revolution
on its orbit. Fresh calculations may be necessary to describe this
type of motion.
The constellations at the background are sufficient evidence to deny
the heliocentric orbits for planets.
The Sun at 500 light seconds
distance, when visible within a cone of 30° maintaining a background
of one constellation, say for example Aries, (Hamel at 68ly) the
Earth maintains in the opposite constellation at midnight, namely
Libra. After six months to maintain heliocentric orbit, the mid day
of today should become midnight and the midnight should become
midday. This has not taken place!


Remember the Polaris located just above the North Pole at a distance
of 430ly. The helical orbit of the Sun follows the helical orbit of the
Polaris and therefore, Polaris is visible from the Northern hemisphere
always in the same place.
Other planets also follow identical helical orbits. The solid angle
at the source of light and the distances to each planet are
maintained uniformlyPlanets Mercury and Venus are closer to the
Sun and are called the inner planets whereas Mars, Jupiter, Saturn,
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are considered as outer ones. Fresh
calculations and models will have to be made to describe the
respective orbits. A comprehensive three- dimensional model of the
solar system is possible only after that.
When observed after about 56.000 years, 90° solar displacement
along its orbit, the Polaris is bound to be visible at another place
and that has to be explained in this way. It is not the Earth, but the
Sun that has moved along its orbit. Since Earth follows the Sun, the
optical illusion explains a helical orbit for each celestial body, orbit
of our star served as reference for another body but dependent on
this one (for helical orbits see under Earth orbit)

30° arc in the direction of equatorial plane orbital displacement where
the ram force is maximum (20km/s speed) for the exposed surface
can explain the whole model. If planets were to go round the Sun on
heliocentric orbits, there should be some reference to this
phenomenon in the literature. But as it is, nothing is available.

The heat produced due to friction and infrared rays is more at the
tropical area compared to the rest of the planetary surface. But the
cold front at one Pole and the warmer hemisphere on the other
maintains the extreme conditions during six months each. This
permits the illusion that the visible Sunlight has light and heat in it.
Further it is possible that the atmospheric mantle moves just behind
the hydrosphere and lithosphere following the orbit and obviously
the heat transferred to the gaseous atmosphere moves in respective
directions.

The
orientation of the crescent indicates the relative position of the planet
on its orbit as seen from the earth’s surface. The images of these
crescents through one full orbit should be sufficient to demonstrate
the helical nature of the orbit. The waxing and waning moon also
exhibits the crescent shape when the moon is located in between
the earth and the sun, but on one side. It is note worthy that the
lunar/solar eclipses do not occur every month. This is the clue to the
fact that orbit of the moon is not around the earth. Images of other
planets like Mars, Jupiter and Saturn (visible with unaided eye)
reflect light from a disc 30° arc., again visibility only 30° conical
constitute a complex system. All calculations will have to be
considered once again.

The natural satellites like
the Moon maintain their own orbits twining around the helical
orbit of the associated planet. The orbits of the natural satellites
(Moons) closely follow behind the planets encircling the respective
planetary orbit. When there are several of these satellites each
one maintains individual orbits but all follow the respective planet.

The illumination coming from photosphere of the Sun, rotating on
its own axis (average 27 days) and maintaining a helical orbit
(equatorial plane) naturally should spread all over. But the receiving
surface of the planet is located at a constant distance (149597893
Km =AU) and the solar axis and that of the Earth are parallel to one
another. Owing to an inclination of 23°27’30’’ (=46°55’’ solid angle)
at the apex of a cone the Earth is illuminated at this angle. However,
the orbit of the Earth completes the base of this cone maintaining
the angle and the relative distance as a constant. With this design,
the observation of 12 constellations in sequence at the background
can easily be explained maintaining the day/night relation uniformly.
The interpretation of this phenomenon constitutes a new approach
to explain observed facts in nature.

This observation definitely shows that the planet Earth never
maintains a heliocentric orbit at all. Similar situation is observed
with all the planets in the solar system. This statement is totally
contradicting the existing views of Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Kepler,
Galileo, Newton and others including the modern astronomers that
all the planets in the solar system follow heliocentric orbit. In order
to explain the seasonal variations it was necessary to assume the
planetary axis inclination of 23°27’30” in relation to the solar axis,
consequently the heliocentric orbit had to be extended as an ecliptic.
This assumption has caused all the misconceptions in the name of
Science around the world.
Even after the observation that Sun is not stationary but has its own
orbital displacement in addition to the rotation as a celestial body,
no more calculations and revisions relative to the planetary orbits
are reported. As a matter of fact all celestial bodies are in motion.
Their relative distances remain doubtful. It is time to think in terms
of a dynamic model.
In every case the flow of water is helical leaving sand bunds,
corroded rocks and eroded soil as evidence of this path way. Since
the spirals appear in three dimensions and directions it has been
impossible to detect and describe the natural phenomenon so far.
The human intelligence should make use of this energy without
obstructing the free flow of water.
Celestial bodies, on the other hand, all move with an axis in a definite
pattern that may be identified as HELICAL. This type of rotation or
orbital revolution maintains the body in position in relation to other
components. Action, reaction, interactions and cumulative effects
may be envisaged for the entire system. An observer is involved in
the movement and there is no possibility of proving any point to
any body. As an observer is unable to distinguish the process as a
whole, he should be happy with the outcome. All celestial bodies
move helically at all time.
Scope for applied research
The axial rotation of Earth at 0.5 km/sec (= 1800 km/h) and the
claimed orbital revolution at 30 km/sec (=108,000 km/h) are
significant dynamic forces not utilized for human use. If only a proper
technology is developed to harness these free energies humanity
can enjoy all comforts almost free of cost. It is ever lasting source.
The orbital velocity of the sun is given as 19.9 km/sec. All the planets
and their satellites move along with the main source of power, the
Sun. Each celestial body has its own specifications and calculations
may be taken up by interested parties to include all other planets.
For example, Uranus is known to have an orbit of 84.01 years
duration. It exhibits several uniqueness of its own. Its axis is said to
have an inclination of 98° with reference to the Sun. According to
the present approach the orbit of Uranus is so wide that the solid

angle at the cone apex is 98 x 2 = 196°. Obviously its motion looks
like a somersault. The interval between solstice and solstice is 42
years. The planet rotates in a direction contrary to that of the Earth.

This film features an interview with Peter Joseph, the hugely successful director of the internet film phenomenon Zeitgeist: The Movie which has had millions of online views. We also speak to Jacque Fresco the architect of the Venus Project. The Zeitgeist Movement (TZM) is a worldwide grassroots organization that serves as the communication and activist arm of The Venus Project, founded by industrial designer and social engineer Jacque Fresco. It describes itself as a "sustainability advocacy organization" and is focused on raising awareness for a global social change, by transitioning society from a Monetary-Based Economy to a new, sustainable social design called a "Resource-Based Economy". The Zeitgeist Movement was inspired by the social response to Peter Joseph's films Zeitgeist: The Movie and Zeitgeist: Addendum. (It was Zeitgeist Addendum which first introduced The Venus Project.)

Inception Part 4: Science Breakthroughs | Plus Ultra Technologies/30 steps

Inception Part 4: Science Breakthroughs

What does science have to say about dreams and about events in the film Inception?

Is it correct to assume that there are two levels of science knowledge?  Is it possible that government military research generations ahead of mainline science?  The truth is that we do not know.  But there is no doubt that the military has access to technology that is years ahead of anything in the civilian research projects.  To guess how far ahead is totally speculative.  Conspiracists, would be the ones to make these guesses.  The guesses range from 50 years ahead to a decade ahead.  And scientists are carefully watched so as not to reveal any information on these black projects.  All the evidence is anecdotal.  But if the government did have such advanced technology, would they tell us?  This video may interest you.  If you cannot see the embedded video here is the link: http://youtu.be/jQqkQdQrsC8


If this statement attributed to Ben Rich is true, then we suggest that you view all the technology we will show you and imagine it what it would be like in fifty years time.

THOUGHT INDENTIFICATION
This is a phrase coined by Psychology professor Tom Mitchellat Carnegie-Mellon University.  He had an interview withComputerworld on Febraury 2010, asking him about this research inmachine learning.  Dr. Mitchell recently convinced Carnegie-Mellon to begin a machine learning department.  What is machine learning?  Here is the best definition we found:
...a branch of artificial intelligence, is a scientific discipline that is concerned with the design and development of algorithms that allow computers to evolve behaviors based on empirical data, such as from sensor data or databases. A major focus of machine learning research is to automatically learn to recognize complex patterns and make intelligent decisions based on data; the difficulty lies in the fact that the set of all possible behaviors given all possible inputs is too large to be covered by the set of observed examples (training data). Hence the learner must generalize from the given examples, so as to be able to produce a useful output in new cases.
Tom M. Mitchell
If you are interested in learning more about machine learning clickhere.  In this Computerworld interview Dr. Mitchell was asked questions about his experiments with computers learning to read thoughts from a human brain.  Already he has been able to achieve this.  He has found some universal places where the brain behaves in the same way when it comes to words like "hammer."  Thus by reading the images from the brain using a technology called fMRI (functional MRI), the computer can "know" that the person is thinking about a hammer.  This research is just at the beginnings but great advancements are being made.

In the film Inception there is a machine that is able to network people into each others dreams.  To some this might seem like total fiction but not in the mind of Dr. Mitchell.  When asked whether people could be networked to share information from their minds so that both could know their thoughts he stated,
That's not too far out. There are certain medical patients who are "locked in," who don't have the ability to speak and can't move. It's very tedious to try to communicate. A number of people are working on brain-computer interfaces, devices that can allow a person to have their thoughts decoded.
One would imagine that the military would be very interested in this technology.  Imagine having soldiers that acted as a "hive" working together in ways undreamed of based on information being received from each others minds in a combat situation.  Of course military robots could act in a similar fashion but with less sophistication at this point.  Watch this video on his research.  If you cannot see the embedded video click this link:http://youtu.be/Cwda7YWK0WQ

"There is no science fiction anymore. All the science fiction I read in high school we're doing." Paul Wolpe Ph.D.

BCI Brain Computer Interface
The progress of any kind of Inception machine would depend on a very sophisticated BCI.  This research is ongoing, although the public progress seems still primitive.  In another interview byComputerworld in May of 2009, with Dr. Taylor Dawn of the FES Center.  This is her vision of where the research is going:
With all the advancements in technology miniaturization and wireless communication, we should be able to eventually shrink the racks of equipment we use in the lab and make all the processors small enough to carry around on a wheelchair or even small enough to implant in the body.


DREAM INTERPRETATION & RECORDING
Already the researchers in this area like Dr. Mitchell are concerned about privacy issues with the advancements in mind reading technology enough to write articles about it. Dr. Mitchell wrote a piece entitled Mining Our Reality in December of 2009 issue of Science.

It makes sense that if this technology can be used to read the mind while it is "awake" then it would also be useful in reading the mind when the subject is sleeping.  If you cannot see the embedded video here is the link:http://youtu.be/MElU0UW0V3Q


Already some researchers are using robots to interpret the dreams of people by translating brain waves into actions.  Professors Fernando Orellana and Brendan Burns from Union College, NY have done research in this area.  Orellana states:
Using recorded brainwave activity and eye movements during REM sleep to determine robot behaviours and head positions, "Sleep Waking" acts as a way to "play-back" dreams.  Through this piece we hope to investigate one of the possible human-robot relationships.
Thus if the eye moves left the robot turns its head left and so forth.  If you cannot see the embedded video inside the article here is the link: http://youtu.be/1RkM1Bt2b3k


John Dylan Haynes a Ph.D. in Neuroscience has extended this research with being able to predict by seven seconds ahead the decisions that people are going to make by using fMRI technology along with computer software.  This system promises to be used to detect lies as well as intentions.  It is being carefully studied by law enforcement and the military.  This technology comes with philosophical implications as regards free will.  Haynes in an interview with Wired magazine states:
"It's not like you're a machine. Your brain activity is the physiological substance in which your personality and wishes and desires operate," he said.
The unease people feel at the potential unreality of free will, said National Institutes of Health neuroscientist Mark Hallett, originates in a misconception of self as separate from the brain.
"That's the same notion as the mind being separate from the body -- and I don't think anyone really believes that," said Hallett. "A different way of thinking about it is that your consciousness is only aware of some of the things your brain is doing."
Hallett doubts that free will exists as a separate, independent force.
In our next installment in this series we will discuss Inception in connection with Lucid Dreaming.
