Abstract :

This paper serves to encourage quantum physicists to engage in psychiatric based research on the brain and its functions (i.e., consciousness, memory, attention). By using physics theorems such as Einstein's theory of relativity and the string theory, both physicists and geneticists alike may be able to elucidate potential links between components of the universe and their effects on the human brain. We have outlined some interesting posits including the cosmos' role in evolutionary biology, alpha bonding in biological molecules, and environmentally induced epigenetic effects on genetics. We also explore how physical forces can influence human memory, behavioral traits, and rates of addiction. Impulsiveness is used to exemplify how environmental changes can contribute to epigenetics and its hereditary alterations. We propose the idea of the presence of a "mental universe," where brain functionality like consciousness is a continuum of physically altered pathways. The realization that the universe and all of its precepts remains a mystery is reflected in the lack of a standardized "unified" physics theorem and mathematical equation that can explain universal dimensions (physical and mental), and as such, so is the complex nature of the functionality of the human brain. We provide herein a suggestion to remedy possible confusion, whereby we attempt to show the relationship of brain as a complex quantum-like organ and the impact of epigenetics on behavioral expression.
