This brief and simplified discernment is to complement the following researches http://matpitka.blogspot.com/2020/02/50-hz-electric-stimulation-of-central.html and https://www.inverse.com/mind-body/3d-brain-models-crucial-stage-of-human-development:
The thalamus is basically "... he thalamus (from Greek θάλαμος, "chamber") is a large mass of gray matter located in the dorsal part of the diencephalon (a division of the forebrain). Nerve fibers project out of the thalamus to the cerebral cortex in all directions, allowing hub-like exchanges of information. It has several functions, such as relaying of sensory signals, including motor signals to the cerebral cortex,[page needed] and the regulation of consciousness, sleep, and alertness. ... " https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thalamus. And therefore, it is reasonable that stimulate the thalamus resulted in https://www.inverse.com/mind-body/3d-brain-models-crucial-stage-of-human-development. In addition, 50 Hz is part of the biologic resonance of organisms or species https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00484-020-01864-6.
However, correlation does not imply causation or total causation. In other words, these were not the only process and mechanism that awake the primate. But rather, there are also subtle process and mechanism that were overlooked or not explored or are being explored in such as http://matpitka.blogspot.com/2020/02/50-hz-electric-stimulation-of-central.html. Basically, in evolved species, the many bodies and subtle body-mind of the many sentient composite body-mind system need to be taken into consideration. The term MB (used in http://matpitka.blogspot.com/2020/02/50-hz-electric-stimulation-of-central.html) needs to be expanded and better defined since many sentient composite body-mind can be composed of interdependent and interconnected parts of BB (biologic body), MB (electric and magnetic body), QB (quantum or energy body), SBM (and subtle body-mind or emerging spirit-soul potentialities of possibilities). For primitive or less evolved species, BB, MB, and QB exist but not SBM. While for evolved species such as human species, SBM exists. And therefore, proper sum of parts of the whole as sum of parts of the greater whole has to be integrated and defined accordingly. In simple words, hidden intertwinement-entanglement complexity is far beyond subtle intertwinement-entanglement which is far beyond observable or detectable intertwinement-entanglement which is far beyond non-linear phenomena which is far beyond linear phenomena which is beyond simple reductionism.
This is not to say the research is simplistic. Rather, life and existence is beyond extreme or out of this world complexity. And therefore, even through scientific advancement requires progress by progress through trials and errors as well as collective knowledge, further open mindness or convergence and integration of disciplines, practices, and wisdom would minimize trials and errors. And better accelerate the scientific quest.
Furthermore, this does not imply the research (https://www.inverse.com/mind-body/3d-brain-models-crucial-stage-of-human-development is not useful and meaningfu)l. It is useful and meaningful since there are many correlations with existing empirical data as well as potential future researches correlation. And which can be further expanded and advanced. Just that when it comes to science of life and existence, much pre-caution and care should be taken as well as caution in beauty, estatic, and intellect simplification since as just mentioned, life and existence are beyond or out of this world complexity.
What discerned here can best be illustrated or should be more obvious through the following empirical data recorded over the millenniums of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd or many persons experience: resuscitation of or awaken an individual or a patient is impossible when the subtle body-mind is in OBE and NDE (also implies OBE) states. It is only possible when the subtle body-mind merges back into the biologic physical body (and the health conditions or normal body-mind states recovered). And these states or OBE, NDE, and disentanglement of subtle body-mind from physical body or biological death can be correlated and validated. And even perhaps with available technology. Therefore, advancing such science and technology which would further help advance the science of epistemology and ontology including maintaining the entanglement of the subtle body-mind with the biologic body for resuscitation and maintening life or life extension as well as health care and medicine would be meaningful and purposeful. And as had inspired and encouraged in diverse ways in past discernments.
And therefore, proper concept that lead to proper specifications, definitions, and methods are essential to achieve meaningful and proper scientific quests since not only correlation does not imply causation or full causation; rather in extreme complex system, correlation and causation can be intertwined and entangled or extremely complex. Otherwise, the scientific quest would be in dead end or wrong direction. And this brief and simplified discernment is to inspire and encourage such global initiative, collaboration, and development.
