The universe and the human brain have something in common, scientists have discovered: the mapping of the universe and the human brain are strangely similar

Both the universe and the human brain have something in common

Sometimes I wonder, what is the universe? What is the mystery of how the universe works, and what is the significance of presenting such a structure? The universe is 96 billion light years in diameter, very large, and still expanding. The diameter keeps expanding and there seems to be no end to it. We have been exploring the universe for centuries, but there are still many profound phenomena waiting to be answered. What is the universe? There is an answer on the Internet: the universe is our brain. How can this answer be explained?

In the process of studying and observing the universe, we have made many maps of the universe by various means, some of which are maps of the sky, and maps of the universe at different observational scales that show different faces. If we are close, we may only see a few lonely planets, but when the distance is stretched, we can see a local map of the whole universe. Drawing it down, we find that the growth map is very similar to our brain.

Some people may think this is a ridiculous thing to do. How can the universe and the brain, two different concepts, be linked together? If we look at it rationally, we would not agree with the connection between the two; but when we think of the universe as a living organism, we may be able to vaguely understand and feel the connection between them.

It has been said that the universe is a growing 'giant cell' because the map of the universe is similar to that of a neuron. Combined with an expanding universe, people are beginning to believe in this possibility.

These claims were described and studied in the journal Nature back in 2011. Scientists made a computer simulation system that cut the universe into small parts and then simulated the growth of the universe and observed the connections between the small parts. As this simulation progressed, the scientists found that the connections between the parts grew, and they would adjust their connections to gradually develop and expand.

It is difficult to know the connection between the brain and the universe, but there are incomprehensible phenomena in this world that suggest that the connection between the brain and the universe is worthy of our attention in the context of natural functioning. There may be an unknown law, and we have to try to find it and crack it.

I think the only thing that the brain and the universe have in common is "mystery". Our modern medical technology is advancing by leaps and bounds, but not by leaps and bounds. There are many functions of the brain region that are worthy of investigation and speculation. Someone once said that the human brain has not been truly developed and that most people have not developed even 10% of their brains. The most intelligent Albert Einstein only developed 20%.

This must make us start to imagine the amazing things that would happen if the human brain was developed to 100%. In the movie "Supernatural", the heroine develops her brain to 100% and then to the point of omnipresence, the equivalent of immortality, mastering everything in the world. Isn't that amazing?

I'm sure many people would like to develop their brains to the maximum, or at least make themselves smarter. But many scientists suggest that all brains are developed, there are just differences in the use of the brain, so some people are smart and some are dumb. I disagree with this view.

From an evolutionary point of view, if all human brains have been developed, what is the logic of the evolutionary process of human ancestral brains? During the evolution of the human brain, brain capacity has changed dramatically. In simple terms, the process of human evolution is the process of expanding brain capacity, which has also made humans smarter.

Following this logical comparison, we have reason to believe that the human brain is still evolving and is evolving in the direction of humans becoming smarter. As technology continues to advance, we are becoming more and more literate. This year, the number of university graduates has reached 11 million. The process of a qualitative leap in the quality of culture for all people is the process of the evolution of the human brain. That is why we have not studied enough about the human brain. The process of evolution leads to changes in the human brain, and those mysterious changes are also our weak points.

Not to mention the mysteries of the universe. Our exploration of the universe is limited to the Earth and the planets around it in our solar system, and we know very little about the other planets. So it is not too much to say that the universe is mysterious.

As for the relationship between the human brain and the universe, it is difficult to draw any conclusions about it until it has been thoroughly studied. What are your thoughts on this? Feel free to leave a discussion in the comments section.
