  • Fasting improves the regenerative capacity of cells

    Fasting greatly improves the regenerative capacity of intestinal stem cells in mice. A metabolic change induces fat burning instead of carbohydrate use.

    Drug treatment could stimulate regeneration without forcing patients to fast.



    Human immune cells can be converted into functional neurons

    Human immune cells in blood called T-cells can be converted directly into functional neurons in three weeks, through the process of transdifferentiation.

    The resulting neurons lack the ability to form mature synapses but they carry out the main fundamental functions of neurons.



    Holographic projection can activate or suppress dozens thousands of neurons.

    Using holographic projection into the brain can activate or suppress dozens and ultimately thousands of neurons.

    The ability to talk to the brain has the potential to compensate for neurological damage, allowing the blind to see and the paralyzed to fell touch.



    Cells called neoblasts help a worm to regenerate when wounded

    Cells called neoblasts help planaria, a worm, to regenerate when wounded. One type of these cells, Nb2, has an unusual protein on its surface, and is always present in the body.

    It increases gene activity in individuals cut in pieces so that each piece regrow into a full new worm.



    Regulating the number of connections between neurons…

    Neurons could have a mechanism of regulating the number of connections so as not to be overwhelmed with information. MIT researchers have demonstrated for the first time how this equilibrium is achieved: when a synapse is strengthened, immediately adjacent synapses weaken depending on the action of a protein called Arc.

    (72aH*) : August 6th is the anniversary of the atomic bomb explosion on Hiroshima in 1945.
    This date represents the entrance of Humanity into the age of Revelation (Apocalypsis).
    Thus, since August 6, 2017, we are in 72 aH, (meanning 72 after Hiroshima).
    It is also an “atheist” and universal calendar to replace the existing ” monotheist”, religious and non universal calendars.
