silence

Elevate form over function to get at less easily articulable truths.

Filling the recess of my mind.
Layer upon layer of transparent and silent force.
I am filled but i feel empty.
My consciousness does not reach or connect to this much.
It's like owning a pile of invisible gold and unable to sell or trade it.
I think it's there.
But I have a hard time with it because it's not exactly common reality.

I hope someday i will realize more of my subliminal qualities.

Silence Triggers the Growth of New Brain Cells
In 2013, regenerative biologist Imke Kirste was examining the effects of sound on the brains of adult mice. What she found would show the benefits of silence.

Her experiment exposed 4 groups of five mice to various auditory stimuli and used silence as a control. As it turned out, the stimuli had a short-term neurological effect, none of which was lasting. What she did find was that two hours of silence prompted cell development in the hippocampus, the brain region related to the formation of memory, involving the senses.

This was deeply puzzling: The total absence of input was having a more pronounced effect than any sort of input tested. The growth of new cells in the brain doesn’t always have health benefits. But in this case, Kirste says that the cells seemed to become functioning neurons.



“We saw that silence is really helping the new generated cells to differentiate into neurons, and integrate into the system.”

While these findings are preliminary one wonders what the applications could be. Could it be possible that this research could help those with degenerative disorders of the brain such as Alzheimer’s, dementia or Parkinson’s? The possibilities are exciting, scientists are continuing to unlock the marvel that is the human brain.
