See Rat Brain Flies F-22 to grasp power of living neural nets!
There is huge opportunity here!
But notice at page bottom that NSF is spending taxpayer $ to put natural quantum neural nets
back into SOM's box by mathematically-mechanizing living neural nets! Ugh!
These NSF SOMwitted morons simply do not get it, do they? You cannot do that without removing nature's DQ!!!
Mechanical CTMs and analogues eliminate DQ!!! See our Darwin's Chip. Doug - 7-8Dec2004.

A superb recent text with good coverage of neural networks from a quantum perspective is
Jeffrey Satinover's The Quantum Brain. We adapted artwork from his text for our graphic above.
See his chapter 6, page 68 for his version of this graphic, along with an appropriate description.

Hopfield neural nets can be tuned to harmonically associate a network's elements in a fashion
very similar to how our brains (quantum stages) work. Just as a human brain does, neural nets
store new information everywhere in their network. We cannot go to a particular neuron and find a
particular piece of information. All neurons in a net store associative information about a particular
piece of information. Even better, Hopfield neural networks oscillate their interconnections among neurons,
so that when new information arrives, said network animately adapts and adjusts all associations
to reflect that new information. Nets like ones we are describing are called "Self-Organizing Nets."

SONs may be configured to allow associations among neurons to have varying levels of probability
for association and tentative latching of new information. Our curves above show a few example
probability curves. Note probability scale at graph's right edge.

Everything we have said so far agrees with what Satinover tells us in his book. We emerse
n¤vel percepts by interjecting reserve energy as part of our graph and interpret each probability
curve in terms of recognizable Quantonic terminology.

Satinover calls our 'normal' classical thought curve "uninspired." Its probability curve is set so that
few animate associations will be made before our network latches a tentative set of associations for a
given pattern input. We show this "uninspired" region in magenta. He calls our next curve down which we
label as quantonic thought, "inspired." It makes many more associations throughout our network and allows
more time for better associations to jell. Hopfield nets are not designed to allow reserve energy affects, but
we went ahead and took liberty showing how it might appear, and how we see it actually affecting real,
human (et al.) SONs. We show this region of reserve energy affectiveness in bright yellow. To Satinover,
this is where genius resides, and we agree. Genius either congenitally knows how to tap reserve energy
more easily than normal folk, or some of us learn how to tap reserve energy and move our SONs'
probability curves into that genius region.

Just now, you may be asking yourself this question: "How do our quantum stages' SON's get set to "uninspired?"
By our local culture, parents, associates, organizations, schools (especially all levels of academia; see Boris Sidis'
Philistine and Genius), government, legacy tradition, lower-level binary Maslowian survival thinking habits, etc.

If we adjust our probability curves downward so that a neural net associates everything with everything
we get a kind of SON "insanity." And that is just what Satinover calls it. We show it in a very light blue.

Satinover, as a trained psychiatrist, also warns us that when we commence this cycle of moving from a
classically "safe" and "normal" region into a much more active range we achieve a euphoria of new associations
which almost acts like an intoxicant. We can become addicted to this process and if we are not careful we may
drive our active associations into that blue, and perhaps less desirable region.

That is a classical view. Zen Masters can cohere reserve energy during meditation and perform startling feats.
We have not learned of any Zen Masters moving into our blue region with harmful affects. There are many
other examples besides Zen Masters we can use here, including expert marksmen at point of trigger pull or
bow string/arrow release. (See Discovery's Physical Feats.)

You may wish to see our review of Sylvia Nasar's A Beautiful Mind about Nobel Prize winner John Forbes Nash's
transition into quantum schizophrenia in a fashion similar to what Satinover anticipates. Nash describes commencement
of his schizophrenia as a conflict twixt his legacy classical mores plus mathematics and newly encountered quantum reality's
n¤nclassical memes.

Where artificial Hopfield SONs are built using formal, i.e., SOM/CR, electronics, our brains are biological networks.
Former "designs out" reserve energy. Latter is quantum capable of accessing reserve energy. Our
Quantonic view is that when we learn how to tap into reserve energy, we dramatically increase our
quantum stage SONs' both local and n¤nlocal associations and their rates of association. When we
tap into reserve energy, each of our neurons begins to act more like a quantum omnivalent qubit instead
of acting like a classically bivalent or just polyvalent/fuzzy classical digit.

Our last sentence in that previous paragraph now begs some alternative thinkqing re
"What do qubits look like in our Quantum Stages' infrastructure?"

Have you ever read that our circulatory system (blood) vessels are fractal and infinitely long?

Now imagine our gray matter's infrastructure as similar except, instead of circulating blood,
they 'circulate' (quantum~holographically transceive) quantum~flux between 1028 and 1043!
Imagine our Quantum Stage's infrastructure as fractal antennæ which 'bundle themselves"
as Quantonics like fuzzonic energy well attractors of adiabatic quantum flux.

For a little more detail on this quantum~epiphany see Doug's recent work on Probability as Value and How Do We Handle N¤væl Flux?

We will add much more here as we learn in greater depth about SONs and their interrelationships with Quantonics.
