I think Prof. Allan Snyder's transcranial magnetic stimulation experiments demonstrate that the brain is a filter of transpersonal knowledge,creativity and expression ;rather than a generator of these things as materialists would have it. He is able to 'switch on' savant-like qualities in the laboratory in 'normal' people.
As well, savants,and some brain damaged individuals show evidence in this direction as interpreted by some.According to author Jay Alfred,savants demonstrate the same set of abilities across all cultures,abilities can emerge spontaneously without practice,and the skills don't improve qualitatively over time in the way a practiced skill does. Edit: Note that "long term potentiation" is not an explanatory factor for the memory and skills they express because their abilities can emerge spontaneously.
Some interpret this to show that savant skills are within all of our right brains, each on an individual basis due to common brain architecture and function.It seems just as well that the sources are interconnected and shared among us due to the qualities listed above by Jay Alfred.
His stimulation inhibits parts of the left brain associated with conceptualization as I understand.Does anyone have any MBT insight on this ? I'm wondering how the PMR rule set applies to all of this.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYAfmyMZ ... r_embeddedhttp://www.superconsciousness.com/topic ... lan-snyder
