Magnet therapy

Here’s interesting passage about magnets interacting with the brain from the National Geographic Brain book.

The brain creates its own tiny magnetic fields. A new, noninvasive process called transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, subtly alters the brain’s magnetic processes without resorting to drugs or surgery.

When applied to the prefrontal lobes, TMS has been shown to enhance the speed and agility of cognitive processing.

In the past, I’ve commented to friends that my generation is probably the last generation right before the era in which technology and bioengineering enable humans to live vastly longer and more powerful lives. I’ll be 85, in some hospital room hooked up to dialysis, and the nurse will come in and say, “Boy, if you’d only been born 20 years later we could have used nanobots and magnetic therapy to clean up your blocked arteries and enhance your mental function as well as making you look 50 years younger. As it is, you’re just a dejected, degenerate old man with a flaccid penis that everyone laughs about back at the nursing station.”

    You’re probably right, we will be at the mercy of an entirely different species. Which is why THEY MUST PERISH IN THE CRADLE!!!

    WHO’S WITH ME!?!

    Just watched the trailer for that Facebook Movie six times so I could see that close up of Brenda Song six times. As that sick? When the Movie comes out I’m going to move into the theater permamently so I can see her on the Big Screen over and over again. Is it possible to live on licking popcorn butter off of the floor?

    All the assholes are going to see “Machete”. Hey, Wil, tell us what you thought of it.
