Fine Structure

Ether and Conciousness

Carl Zimmer on some interesting new research that's coming down the pipe related to how anesthesia effects brain patters and how that helps us figure out just what's going on in the brain.

I imagine teleportation would feel a lot like anesthesia (especially with lag), possibly with the similar side effect of nausea. Perhaps that doesn't make a whole lot of sense unless I give the entire backstory on thoughts about teleportation, but maybe that's another post.
