Steampunk Fusion Dream

Title: Steampunk Fusion Dream
Artist: Moulton
Composer: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Barsoom Tork Associates
Midi: Yellow Submarine


In the town of Santa Fe
Lives a man who wrote to me
And he told me of his strife
In the land of science dreams

So we rallied up some puns
Till we found the steampunk theme
And we dived beneath the raves
In our steampunk fusion dream

We all believe in our steampunk fusion dream,
Steampunk fusion dream, steampunk fusion dream
We all believe in our steampunk fusion dream,
Steampunk fusion dream, steampunk fusion dream

And our friends are in a cult
Many more of them need an adult
And the band begins to play

We all believe in our steampunk fusion dream,
Steampunk fusion dream, steampunk fusion dream
We all believe in our steampunk fusion dream,
Steampunk fusion dream, steampunk fusion dream

As we live a life of tease
Everyone of us has too much greed
Bubbling gas and steampunk theme
In our steampunk fusion dream.

We all believe in our steampunk fusion dream,
Steampunk fusion dream, steampunk fusion dream
We all believe in our steampunk fusion dream,
Steampunk fusion dream, steampunk fusion dream

We all believe in our steampunk fusion dream,
Steampunk fusion dream, steampunk fusion dream
We all believe in our steampunk fusion dream,
Steampunk fusion dream, steampunk fusion dream

Fusion powers rapid eye movement sleep

Inspiration.
The function of rapid eye movement sleep (REMS) has long been a mystery. Recently, it has been reported that REMS has a role in clearance of cellular debris from the nervous system. REMS deprivation causes neurodegeneration in critical brain regions such as the hippocampus. Also, there is a tight link between hypothalamic/circadian regulation of body temperature and REMS.

Mechanism
We now report a novel mechanism for eye movement during sleep. Using whole brain calorimetry on human volunteers, we found that the circadian pacemaker of the suprachiasmatic nucleus signals via a formerly orphan neurohormone, now named Substance F, to activate action potential initiation in ocular motor neurons. The activation of these neurons depends of activation of the Substance F receptor and activation of a G protein. The G protein then activates the enzyme cCMP-phosphodiesterase. Decreased levels of cCMP close the large conductance cCMP-gated proton channels of fusisomes, allowing proton accumulation in palladium nanoparticles inside the fusisomes. Fusisomes are a newly-recognized intracellular organelle with similarities to mitochondria. Fusisomes accumulate palladium and catalyze cold fusion upon Substance F signaling. The cold fusion powers ocular motor neuron activity during sleep and results in the REMS-associated increase in body temperature.

Reproducibility
A whole brain neutron flux can be detected during Substance F-induced cold fusion (n=25). In vitro experiments with isolated fusisomes and cCMP demonstrate that the source of the neutrons and heat are fusisomes with low calcium permeability (performed with freshly isolated mouse and rat brain fusisomes and fusisomes isolated from human neuroblast cell lines N17 and N23).

Confusions
Our results demonstrate that REMS is due to cold fusion in Substance F-activated neuronal fusisomes. Dreams during REMS are powered by cold fusion. Preliminary experiments suggest that fusisomes can produce hydrogen gas during REMS. In one experiment, we fed mice heavy water for ten days. The experiment ended when our animal care facility exploded. Warning: we suspect that consumption of heavy water can trigger fusisome ignition.

How did they rule out the Phlogiston Model of REMS?

One would think the Phlogiston Model would totally suck all the Oxygen out of the room.
