“A pain in the brain” on page 27 of the December issue of Scientific American is a breakthrough in the understanding of migraine headaches. For the first time it is now understood what causes them. No it is not blood vessels or pressure on the brain but a nerve called the trigeminal nerve system. Exiting the base of the brain it branches out to cover the face, up to and around the eyes. It appears that the nerve system gets over stimulated (since it takes in the eyes it explains why auras are seen in some) and that over stimulation travels into the brain. From my understanding it may be that the over stimulation allows for too much sensory information to enter the brain at once alone a single pathway and it triggers the migraine.
So if we now know what triggers a migraine can we stop it? It appears so. With this finding the article states that beta blockers (like those used for the heart) are the best current treatment. So based on the context it appears a person would need to take them daily. However trials have been ongoing for a drug that may be approved in 2016. It is a monthly shot. Although I do not suffer from migraines I do get cluster headaches. Cluster headaches (by some doctors) are said to be worse than a migraine but lesser understood. But unlike a migraine cluster headaches are not nearly as frequent. I get maybe 3 a year; my son also suffers from clusters as do 2 of my sisters. Although doctors say clusters are more painful I believe that migraines are worse since they are far more frequent in occurrence. Hopefully the testing of the drug will continue to show positive results and it will be approved and in turn help millions of migraine suffers.
Not to many weeks from now I will be publishing "The Grid - The Cost of Humanity Book 2". It is the sequel to "Still With Eyes Closed". To date I have moved a total of 4,000 books. Through sales, Kindle lending, and promotions. Very few have taken the time to remember to leave feedback on Amazon. I asked Amazon for suggestions, from their experience those who really enjoy a book seldom remember to leave feedback. Haters seem to remember. All 3 of my books are currently getting 4 & 5 stars, but few have taken the time to do so.
When I released my first 3 books I hand gave away many signed copies, those who freely took a copy promised to leave feedback. Some have, all the others gave me a verbal 5 star rating and promised to leave the same on Amazon, few have kept that promise.
Authors need good, descriptive, thoughtful high star rating feedback to encourage others to purchase the book. With that in mind with the release of "The Grid" I have chosen to keep it as a purchase only. Ones who followed through on my other books did so for those books. I am hoping that in the end honesty plays out and my work is worth buying.
This is a submission I sent to Scientific American.
To the Editor & Joshua Frieman
This is in response to Mr. Frieman’s article in the November 2015 issue entitled “Seeing in the Dark”. I thought he presented the material in a very informative manner, one that truly captured my full attention. I am eagerly awaiting the findings of the DES study, and hope to see those results published in Scientific American magazine. I was unaware that there are as many theories as he presented to dark energy and what he presented triggered some very engaging conversations between me and my son who also has a profound interest in science. The reason for my writing this letter is to present another option, one I have been working on for the past 7+ years. I am not a physicist in any light, I hold no Phd’s, I simply read all that I can and watch all the documentaries released on all forms of physics. So with that in mind what I present is purely from a layman’s understanding of physics.
Over a decade ago I encountered neutrinos and quickly developed a fascination for them and in turn started to learn as much as I could and take in as much as I was able to comprehend. I would stair off into “space” and run through thought exercises and at times I would dream about them. I was already trying to understand dark energy, but when I was introduced to neutrinos the two seemed to me to be a logical pairing. So I got to the dry erase board and went to work. Over the course of 7+ years I have developed what I think might be a link to understanding dark energy. I am not stating this is the answer, just maybe a small accounting for part of the answer to the gravity question. I will first present my concept and then point to the attached illustration of the equation; I do not know how to make the same thing using my keyboard so I took a photo of my dry erase board.
To begin; I am not going to explain in detail the 3+ and 3- states of the neutrino or their nature, I am going to assume that we are all on the same page with that understanding, so from that point moving forward. We know that the state of a neutrino will alter when acted upon by other matter; we know that neutrinos exist in an innumerable state; we know they can pass through anything and alter their state as they do so. By itself a single neutrino is of insignificant mass and energy, but what if taken as a whole? Suppose the space between galaxies is packed with neutrinos and the mass of the total is a self-acting trigger for other neutrinos. In turn these countless neutrinos would be causing their nearby neutrinos to trigger a change of state, perhaps from the + to the -. These changes would occur through the whole of the universe and in turn as a whole the constant change of the neutrinos would create a gravitational wake. If you attempt to measure a single neutrino or even a small area there may not be enough mass/energy to “see” the dark energy, but we can “see” it as a whole by the way the gravity of dark energy is affecting the universe as a whole.
So my proposal is that neutrinos fill in the missing “matter” and their acting upon one another creating a changed state and that changed state is creating a small gravitational wake that we can “see” as a whole as the gravity affecting the universe.
Just one other thought that may or may not be related. I realize that the Pillars of Creation are within the Milky Way and that the cosmic radiation and other related factors will dictate how the clouds are formed. But all nebulas, supernova and other cosmic events are shaped and formed into the mass we see by outside factors, could it be possible that some of these shapes are caused by a neutrino gravitational wake?
Thanks for taking the time to read this.

1st the 3+ & 3- states of the neutrino equals an infinity gravitational wake divided by mass displaced in spacetime by (Einstein stated that as 2 objects cannot be in the same space at the same time 2 objects of matter cannot be in the same exact time at the same time.) .10 to the 7 power of a second multiplied by omega or the maximum warp of spacetime equals the total displacement of dark-matter/dark-energy
