  1. The subconscious system is the prime residency of the psychological representations of the mind. The conscious system is differentially affected by the subconscious processing of informations.
  2. Theses compounds are exerting their effects through monoamine oxidase.
  3. Here's a famous study which demonstrated the efficacy of exogenous cannabinoids (ie: THC) in promoting hippocampal neurogenesis. Furthermore, the subconscious system is the prime residency of essential psychological qualities of the mind: creativity, volition, and saliency. I argue that the pharmacological activation of the subconscious system via THC enhance dopaminergic neurotransmission and thereby facilitate optimal computation of consciousness through synaptic activity.
  4. Thank you for your reply. I would like to clarify a few points: Since THC administration is known to enhance functional neurogenesis, I believe neural plasticity (connectivity) is increased through dopaminergic activation of the subconscious system. I argue that "synaptic hypercomputation" may result from increased dopaminergic connectivity during synapse formation (neurogenesis). The relationship between the subconscious mind, brain connectivity, and hypercomputation could be related to the (hyper)computational capacity of dopaminergic neurons to modulate emotionality and creativity. Hence, it is well known that dopamine neurotransmission is implicated in the modulation of learning and encoding of (new) memories. The synaptic hypercomputation model propose a functional interplay between neurogenesis and interneuronal connectivity through endocannabinoid-mediated quantum processing of the subconscious system.
  5. I would gladly consider psychiatry a science (as opposed to a pseudoscience) if the diagnosis would rely on biological testing. For the most part, modern psychiatry is based on subjective interpretrations of psychology without careful examination of the neural correlates of the psychiatric symptoms. Psychiatry is also a form of mystical alchemy as the treatments (ie antipsychotics) are not based on empirical evidences of the pathology but on superstitious beliefs of the effectiveness of the drug.

  7. Biological hypercomputation occurs in photosynthetic systems, so I guess it's naive to think the human brain do not have this capacity.
  8. It has been reported that "critical systems often exhibit optimal computational properties", so the emergence of biological hypercomputation in living organisms may not be so uncommon. http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fnsys.2014.00166/full
  9. Dopamine and serotonin are essential monoaminergic neurotransmitters implicated in the neuromodulation of the subconscious system. The pharmacological regulation of dopamine and serotonin via cannabinoids (THC) administration may enhance synaptic hypercomputation (SH), a novel neurocomputational mecanism to access the subconscious system on-demand. Accessing the subconscious system through synaptic hypercomputation is probably relevant to monoaminergic connectivity and schizophrenia. Furthermore, dopamine disconnectivity has been implicated in the pathology of schizophrenia. However, the relationship between schizophrenia and synaptic connectivity is poorly understood. Could cannabinoids be used as part of an antipsychotic treatment for enhancing interneuronal synaptic connectivity ?
  10. You might want to take a look at vitamin D. Vitamin D is a parasympathetic nutrient which may lower blood pressure by regulating calcium homeostasis.
  11. Dopamine receptors are implicated in the subconscious processing of creativity. In particular dopamine D2 receptor density is negatively correlated with creativity. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2871784/
  12. I have schizophrenia diagnosis but I don't hear any voices in my head. My personal investigation on the subject led me thinking about the "microwave-induced auditory effect". Pulsed microwaves can induce a auditory evoked potential in the brain, which can be perceived as "voices".
