Great discoveries solve problems in different, scientific fields.

Early Milestones of Interference Networks

First Investigations

After the idea of interference networks for nerve-systems was born in 1992, we found, that it is not possible to get data from nerve system in high quality. So a simple application of an interference network should demonstrate the ability to make acoustic images. For first acoustic experiments, microphones were connected to our EEG-data recorder. And our software "BioInterface" produced first acoustic images. After we got the first image, we found out, that worldwide hundreds of acoustic institutes work in this field...

Acoustic Photo- and Cinematography

Early documents of the birthplace of a new technology: Acoustic Photo- and Cinematography came into beeing. Far away from mainstream of acoustic research this 'funny' application should 1994 demonstrate, how interference nets can project images (with inversive time or with non-causal, negative delays).

    Nerve system as Wave Interference Network (historic pages)

    How to understand holomorphic brain projections? Simulations of interference nets in nerve like parametrisation show well known phaenomena: mirrored maps, bursts, conjunction, zooming, movement, pain overflow or dermal projections (somatotopy). We simulate the homunculus and we find ideas for imagination and holomorphy.
    Is it coincidence or providence?
