Nano-Bio-Info-Cogno Skin


Natasha Vita-More


NanoTech-Now

March 18, 2012

What is more intimate to each person than the very skin of the body - the sensuous touch, taste and smell of our skin? The skin, visible and exposed, displays our character and emotions. Yet, it is hidden and private as it covers the curves and creases of our bodies and responds to each breath, sigh and quiver.

So happy Natasha, you are focusing on what was to be the big new world of science back in early 2000’s the NBIC !!

I was at the first conference of it in 2/2003 at UCLA. The research by so many brilliant scientist and researchers was extremely extensive, 100’s of pages with National Science Institute pushing it along… It was the Brave New World arriving !!

The Way I describe Why everything collapsed is Bush going to War with Iraq later in 2003 took all funding away for development of this integration of Nano Bio Information Tech, Cognitive Science.

I have since taken these words of NBIC from 2003 down to the more integral description of where we have evolved to in research of the separate area’s.

Nano is the Atom, Bio is the Genome, Information Tech/AI is the Immersion of the Virtual World that is running life/world now and Cognitive of course is the Neurology that has been so highly developed in most academia focusing on how brain works etc.

As the technology of the MRI equipment advanced we now know beyond a shadow of doubt which part of the brain is doing what, what neurons are firing in response to what.. We are able to go deep into the embedded highly Highly complex world in this little Bio grey mass that is mostly water !!

The research I have read say’s the size of brain does not determine anything it is the amount of water !! Now we have to really utilize all the research in cognitive world to start connecting real dots of the psychological aspects of feelings, and intuitive world that effects everyone.. Take it out of the bio physical.

It is proven scientifically for a long time what ever our brains are doing is heavily influenced by the emotions, and spiritual reflections of relating to self and space around one. This real drivers of the physical bio self is not even being addressed in traditional academia right now as so many variables etc and tragically not in our health care system.

Yes Skin is the largest organ in the human system. Unfortunately the lifestyle today does not really allow people to be intune with the sensual nature of feeling their skin all the time !! That would be a great mindfulness for people to practice ! As it would keep them in touch with rest of their body, mind, spirit too for good health ! Fascinating your expansive possibilities of what can be !

I use to tell my clients that the pain and discomfort they were experiencing was not in the part of body that they complaining about. It was the
1) the immediate technological reactionary response in the mechanics of the bio brain
2) ILL is I LACK LOVE. The physical bio OUCH pain is to take focus off a hurt that was deeper in the emotion, spiritual part of them etc. . It is the internal ” Drivers” is what needed to be addressed.

Luckily all the variety of body therapies, meditation, breathing, etc, allows much release in this area without having to do relive painful memories.. The stagnation in Body being released via touch or higher states will release the impulse in the brain and emotions by letting the wireless anatomy of cellular communication do it’s work of communicating restoring bio relationships that were blocked on it’s own etc.

The biological body is only the step down into the earth plane of gravity.. It is not the person at all.  It is just the house. So your house needs constant maintenance and repairs now and then so it goes with this Biological Contraption that we call our ” Bodies” . The only difference is for the “Entity” that is US at this point in time we only get this ONE Bio House in be in for this ” lifetime”.

My ads for preventive practice use to say ” Only One BODY to a Customer” Cannot exchange, nor return ! It is Vital You keep it functioning and communicating” !! Why I am so much behind the future of what NBIC is bringing us so we can as the Human Species evolve in the Way we are suppose to !! From the inside out in a spatial way of Emergence !
