MeshCODE Theory from TGD Point of View

Matti Pitkanen


Benjamin Goult has made an interesting proposal in an article “The Mechanical Basis of Memory the MeshCODE Theory” published in Frontiers of Molecular Neuroscience. The proposal is that the cell - or at least synaptic contacts - realize mechanical computation in terms of adhesive structures consisting of hundreds of proteins known as talins, which act as force sensors. Talins are connected to integrins in the extracellular matrix, to each other, and to the actins in the cell interior. This proposal has far reaching consequences for understanding formation of memories as behaviors at the synaptic level. This proposal does not conform with the TGD vision but inspires a series of questions leading to a rather detailed general vision for how magnetic body (MB) receives sensory input from biological body (BB) coded into dark 3N-photons a representing genes with N codons and as a response activates corresponding genes, RNA or proteins as a reaction. Sensory input and the response to it would be coded by the same dark genes. Since synaptic adhesion structures relate to memories as behaviors and since the TGD based view about memories distinguishes between memories as behaviors and memories as episodal/sensory memories, a discussion about memories according to TGD is included
