    Hmm?
  • 10:25
    Not that part. My prof went into 4 different planes according to Plato after that. To show that there was more than just what the average person would interpret from reading the cave analogy
  • 10:25
    That's really cool
  • 10:25
    Hold on Missy, they're trying to level you up
  • 10:26
    I wouldn't mind :)
  • 10:26
    Something about math being more perfect than one thing and something else being even more perfect than that
  • 10:26
    It’s a shame Plato can’t witness people jerking him off all these years later
  • 10:26
    Idk lol Idc anymore, either
  • 10:26
    Metaphysics is for wankers :P
  • 10:26
    So your point was nothing
  • 10:26
    Nice Clio
  • 10:27
    So you mean math is like the shadows of reality? Or that math is reality and we only see the shadows of it?
  • 10:27
    I told you. I didn't get it. So yeah, my point was nothing :P
  • 10:27
    Too bad, it's an interesting topic
  • 10:28
    Omg I've gone over this shit so many times with stoners
  • 10:28
    But yes, Missy. To watch my prof light up while he chalked up the board with that gibberish, he thought it was pretty fuckin profound
  • 10:28
    There’s only so much to be said though before it’s just nonesense
  • 10:29
    Helookedlike the guy in Time Machine losing his shit lol
  • 10:29
    Could you go over it over more time tryp? I'd love to hear it
  • 10:29
    On my phone? He'll no
  • 10:29
    Haha fine
  • 10:29
    Some other time?
  • 10:29
    HELL NO
  • 10:29
    I had a professor like that also, she wrote the additional text book for that course and god it was insufferable
  • 10:30
    You are CRUEL!!!
  • 10:30
    Why tell me you know shit then T.T
  • 10:30
    Now I'm curious
  • 10:30
    I will be one of those professors one day
  • 10:30
    Her passion was really awesome though
  • 10:31
    Dude I'm sorry if you guys don't think about reality itself, and the fact that your only tie to reality is cause and effect from something you believe is real
  • 10:32
    420 blaze it
  • 10:32
    Hey don't accuse me of not thinking of it just because you're lazy to share
  • 10:32
    Damn. Wrong trailer. No blackboard scene
  • 10:32
    Robin Williams in Flubber, then?
  • 10:33
    I loved flubber
  • 10:33
    Never saw it
  • 10:33
    That movie always message me so happy
  • 10:33
    The party they had was great
  • 10:33
    It still makes me smile
  • 10:33
    No,we don't. contemplating metaphysics is for religious people who don't want to admit it :P
  • 10:34
    Lol
  • 10:34
    Hahaha
  • 10:34
    Well I can agree on that, although I'm one of the religious people who won't admit it but kind of does :p
  • 10:34
    I’m having a really hard time with religious beliefs currently
  • 10:34
    Probably Jewish Marxist shit to corrupt you guys into postmodern identity politics
  • 10:34
    Ty Jordan Peterson
  • 10:35
    I'll take hard science or soft science. But that religious bs annoys me. Like it's bad enough people have to believe that, and try to force it on other people. But then they go and make it tedious and boring. And a frikkin competition for longass bullshit
  • 10:35
    Just don't let him know he uses postmodernism identity politics in his own classifications
  • 10:36
    long made up words to describe it all

The (Endo)-cannabinoid system and psycho-biological homeostasis

  • 194 posts

    Both delta 9-THC and cannabidiol may be capable of reducing the neurotoxicity that is mediated in the rat brain by the NMDA-, AMPA-, and kainate receptors. Cannabinoids function as potent antioxidants in cultured neurons"  R Lorenz - Neuro Endocrinol Lett, 2002 -" "Cannabinoids function as neuromodulators and enhance GABA transmission in the GPe [12], possibly by reducing GABA reuptake [13], although the exact mechanism remains unclear" C Zadikoff, PM Wadia, J Miyasaki, R Chen, AE Lang… - Basal Ganglia, 2011 - Elsevier A last example is that cannabinoids function as anxiolytics under certain conditions and doses, a main therapeutic indication of GABA A positive allosteric modulators JA Lile, TH Kelly, LR Hays - Drug and alcohol dependence, 2014 - europepmc.org Dopamine and endogenous cannabinoids function as neurotrans- mitters as well as neuromodulators in the brain, in which they often have opposing effects on nerve function S Fan, S Yazulla - Visual neuroscience, 2005 - Cambridge Univ Press  Some studies describing the effects of cannabinoids on the system...  now endocannanbinoids  https://arxiv.org/abs/cond-mat/0208590 Dreams, endocannabinoids and itinerant dynamics in neural networks: re elaborating Crick-Mitchison unlearning hypothesis  Dreams, endocannabinoids and itinerant dynamics in neural networks: re elaborating Crick-Mitchison unlearning hypothesis [cond-mat/0208590] Dreams, endocannabinoids and itinerant dynamics in neural networks: re elaborating Crick-Mitchison unlearning hypothesis In this work we reevaluate and elaborate Crick-Mitchison's proposal that REM-sleep corresponds to a self-organized process for unlearning attractors in neural networks. This reformulation is made at the face of recent findings concerning the intense activation of the amygdalar complex during REM-sleep, the role of endocannabinoids in synaptic weakening and neural network models with itinerant associative dynamics. We distinguish between a neurological REM-sleep function and a related evolutionary/behavioral dreaming function. At the neurological level, we propose that REM-sleep regulates excessive plasticity and weakens over stable brain activation patterns, specially in the amygdala, hippocampus and motor systems. At the behavioral level, we propose that dream narrative evolved as exploratory behavior made in a virtual environment promoting "emotional (un)learning", that is, habituation of emotional responses, anxiety and fear. We make several experimental predictions at variance with those of Memory Consolidation Hipothesis. We also predict that the "replay" of cells ensembles is done at an increasing faster pace along REM-sleep.
