Interview with a Time Traveller

As someone who has personally known the author of Seven Secrets of Time Travel: Mystic Voyages of the Energy Body for more than twenty years, I can vouch for Von Braschler's really profound comprehension of practical spirituality. Nowhere is this more apparent than in his latest book, which is not some New Age, airy-fairy attempt at wish-fulfilment. 

Rather, from his grasp of classical philosophy and science, he has developed a convincing methodology for transcending time, not via a device or machine, but through the agency of human consciousness. It is not some futuristic technology, but present-day technique, Von Braschler demonstrates, that allows us to cross the time barrier.

Can a Simple Switch in Your Brain Make You Happier?

By Janice Mawhinney
Source: Toronto Star

Can you learn to be a happier person by repeatedly visualizing two tiny parts of your brain and imagining yourself tweaking them?

Colorado teacher and musician Neil Slade says you can.

Slade has developed brain exercises, described on http://www.neilslade.com, aimed at lifting your spirits and calming your fears. The website has become something of an underground sensation, attracting an average of 750,000 hits a month through word of mouth alone.

Slade suggests visualizing part of the primitive brain called the amygdala, commonly described as the seat of emotional experience. The two amygdalae, each about the size and shape of an almond, are located on either side of the head, between the eye and ear, about an inch in. Studies have shown the amygdalae have a part to play in everything from memory storage to anxiety.

Slade recommends locating your amygdalae in your thoughts, and visualizing a switch on each one, with the click-back position turning on the fear feelings, and the click-forward position turning on feelings of pleasure. Picture yourself purposefully clicking the switch forward.

How to Destroy Your Best Excuses

I didn't have any money so couldn't start a business. And even if I started one, I didn't have an office, or clients, and I was too shy to cold-call clients. I didn't have connections or rich parents or anything for that matter.

I didn't have talent. I just got lucky. Nobody will hire me. I don't have the right equipment. I couldn't write a book because I had no publisher. I couldn't do stand-up because I was afraid people would heckle me. I'm afraid to write a blog post often because what would people think?

All of my excuses turned out to be blessings in disguise. There's always a gap between "what I have now" and "what I would like."

The gap is all of your excuses. All it takes to close the gap is to be creative and work your way through the excuses. I repeat: this is ALL IT TAKES.

Your excuses are simply the roadmap that takes you from "here" to "there". Good luck on your travels.

The Simple Cure for Just About Everything


At a dinner conversation tonight, the topic turned to health and fitness.

The ladies in the group were discussing their various Crossfit successes, while we men congratulated ourselves on improvements caused by switching to lower-carbohydrate diets and better weight training principles.

The discussion broadened to the health plight of the Modern Human in general, and how the populations of rich countries are getting heavier and less healthy, even as the world makes progress toward lifting many of the poorest countries out of malnutrition due to poverty.

We wondered why with all the wealth and free information available out there, that most rich-country residents end up doing exactly what is worst for them: eating and drinking concentrated sugar, and remaining in a seated position for most of their waking hours.

Get Your Next Exorcism Through Your Smartphone

One weekend in February, Archbishop Isaac Kramer got called to a home in Parma, Ohio, for what began as a simple house exorcism and turned into a real trial—the possessed 19-year-old growled, spoke in Latin, and even threw his friend across the room.

"Where the [possessed] man was standing, all the snow melted under and around his feet, and he was barefoot and acted like it didn't even bother him," said Isaac, who is the primate of the Anglo-Catholic Church, a branch of Protestantism that borrows heavily from Catholicism.

"When I started doing the blessing of the house, he would run out of the room I was in. He wouldn't want to be in there. All of a sudden, he was running around without a shirt on, and there were red rashes all over his chest… Then he would begin growling at me."


Magic Questions to Get Inside Their Heads

By Jack Ellis, Author of Black Magic Tantra

These were somewhat popular back in the 'good old days' of alt.seduction.fast – but have fallen out of favor in recent years, mostly due to the popularity of 'The Cube'.

These are much easier to remember than the Cube and can be done quickly.
Best of all, it gives you insight into the girl you are talking to. One time I had a girl answer the 'beach' question by saying 'I would run and hide!' Needless to say I didn’t spend much more time trying for her.

To lead into these is quite simple. Just say your friend showed you a really cool personality test, or that you always ask people this instead of exchanging resumes first.

How to Prime Your Brain for Optimum Performance

Inside your skull is a massive supercomputer. You own it free and clear. With its 100 billion neurons, and with a typical neuron linking to 1000 to 10,000 other neurons, your highly networked brain is incredibly powerful and capable.

Pick up a simple object nearby like a pen or a spoon, and look at it. Turn it upside down. Spin it around. Notice that your brain is able to recognize the object no matter how you position it. You can change the lighting by putting the object in shadow. You can obscure part of it from view. You can bend or break it. And your brain still recognizes that object simply and easily. Even a child can do this.

But what's happening under the hood? Your visual cortex, consisting of about 538 million neurons, is doing an enormous amount of parallel processing on the signals it's receiving from your eyes. Your visual cortex detects edges, evaluates color, tracks motion, interprets reflection, and more — all in real time.

How to Be Less Stupid


By James Altucher

I'm really stupid. I can tell you in advance. I think at heart, if I work at it, I can be smart. But at the moment I'm largely an idiot. I feel I have the right knowledge but I let a lot of stuff get in the way. You know: "stuff". Worries, guilt, paranoia, grudges, resentment. Like, for instance: I resent the people who resent me. I think they resent me for no reason. So now I resent them. What a circle-jerk!

I used to think when I added stuff to my brain I'd get smarter. But this is not true. For instance, if I look up when Charlemagne was born I'd just add a fact to my head which I will forget tomorrow. This won't make me smarter. Subtraction, and not Addition, is what makes the window to the brain more clear, wipes away the smudges, opens the drapes.

One example: the day I lost the deal to do Tupac's website, I had a chess lesson afterwards. I couldn't play at all. It was like I didn't even know the rules. My instructor said, "what's wrong with you today?" But I was ashamed. And angry at myself. So my intelligence went way down. Like 80% down.

So here's my great list.

Virtual Heroin: Are Video Games Our Next Hard Drug?

So video games are addictive—this we know.

It comes down to dopamine, one of the brain's basic signaling molecules. Emotionally, we feel dopamine as pleasure, engagement, excitement, creativity, and a desire to investigate and make meaning out of the world. It's released whenever we take risks, or encounter novelty. From an evolutionary standpoint, it reinforces exploratory behavior.

More importantly, dopamine is a motivator. It's released when we have the expectation of reward. And once this neurotransmitter becomes hardwired into a psychological reward loop, the desire to get more of that reward becomes the brain's overarching preoccupation. Cocaine, widely considered the most addictive drug on the planet, does little more than flood the brain with dopamine and block its reuptake (sort of like SSRI's block the reuptake of serotonin).

Video games are full of novelty, risk-taking, reward-anticipation, and exploratory behavior. They're dopamine-production machines dressed up with joysticks and better graphics. And this is why video games are so addictive.

The Billionaires Who Want to Live Forever

Of all the things money can't buy—love, happiness, time machines—immortality is one we sure pay a lot for. According to the market-research firm Global Industry Analysts, the anti-aging industry generates more than $80 billion per year. All this despite the fact that there are no proven ways of extending human lifespan.

In the past decade, longevity research has become a legitimate academic pursuit for molecular biologists. Scientists are trying to untangle the basic mechanisms that underlie aging, and the idea is catching on that growing old isn't just a fact of life but rather a disease that can be cured through medical interventions. Some of the biggest proponents of radical life extension also happen to be billionaires. There's something about amassing more money than you can ever possibly use that naturally makes you hunger for ways to stay alive longer—if not forever.

Adventures in Erotic Hypnosis


By Rachel R. White/ Source: New York Observer

Emily, a 24-year-old burlesque dancer with creamy skin and dark curly hair was at a party in Manhattan a few summers back when she lost her vagina. It was a worrisome feeling. She ran around the crowded loft frantically looking under bags and coats yelling, "I've lost my vagina!"

"Where did you see it last?" asked one friend with a laugh. "Do you have insurance on it?" wondered another.

But Emily wasn't kidding. She could feel the tears welling up, at which point her date, a longtime friend, walked by and snapped his fingers. She dropped an armload of coats.

"Never mind, you guys," she said. "I found it!" Disaster averted.

Emily laughed as she retold the story on a chilly day in McCarren Park. But she could still revisit the sense of panic she'd felt, the result of an experiment with erotic hypnosis. Now, she's become a practitioner of hypnosis herself.

Hypnotist Robbers Strike in Germany

At least two thieves have been reported as hypnotizing women in Elmshorn and robbing them of their jewelry and other items — then temporarily leaving them without memory of the thefts.

Cops in Elmshorn, Germany, are on the lookout for robbers who allegedly hypnotize their victims before taking their valuables.

The two women, believed to be Russian, allegedly targeted a 66-year-old in front of a store in Elmshorn, Schleswig-Holstein, last Monday.

And police believe there have been other victims who may not even know they've been hit.

Scientists Find a Way to Read Your Mind

Think mind reading is science fiction?

Think again.

Scientists have used brain scanners to detect and reconstruct the faces that people are thinking of, according to a a study accepted for publication this month in the journal NeuroImage.

In the study, scientists hooked participants up to an fMRI brain scanner – which determines activity in different parts of the brain by measuring blood flow – and showed them images of faces. Then, using only the brain scans, the scientists were able to create images of the faces the people were looking at.

How Jim Carrey Manifested $10 Million



Have you figured out how to use the law of attraction to manifest more wealth and prosperity into your life, or is that something you're still working on?

According to the law of attraction, the results in your life are attracted into your life by means of the predominating thoughts which are in your mind.

This is true whether you're thinking about what you do want or what you don't want. If you're always thinking about what you do want, you'll attract more of it. If you're always thinking about what you DON'T want, you'll attract more of what you don't want.

In case you think this sounds impossible, let's look at how you can actually manifest prosperity into your life using the Law of attraction...


Your Subsconscious Mind Is A Pretty Good Lie Detector

When it comes to detecting deceit, your automatic associations may be more accurate than conscious thought in pegging truth-tellers and liars, according to research published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.

The findings suggest that conscious awareness may hinder our ability to detect whether someone is lying, perhaps because we tend to seek out behaviors that are supposedly stereotypical of liars, like averted eyes or fidgeting. But those behaviors may not be all that indicative of an untrustworthy person.

Be A Rich Monk - 4 Crazy Misconceptions About the Spiritual Life

By Karl Moore / Source: The Brain Salon

Northern Thailand, 2006.

I'm sitting in an ancient monastery by myself. Soaking up the atmosphere.
In front of me, young Buddhist monks are gathering in clusters for their meditative practice. They each wear bright orange robes.

I sit around. Observing their rites and traditions for hours. It's both peaceful and insightful. It makes you go to a place inside and question yourself.

Near the end of my day, one of the monastery leaders came up to me. He was the traditional wise Zen master. His robe was a deep orange, apparently a sign of his maturity and experience within this Buddhist community.

"Did you find what you were looking for?" he asked.

It's true. I'd gone there with questions in my head. At the time, I was battling with two seemingly competing principles.

Firstly -- Money.

How to Become Superhuman

Of all the superheroes in popular culture, I've always been most drawn to Batman. While many superheroes come by their superpowers through genetic blessing or freakish accident, Batman is a regular guy who gained his superhuman abilities on his own. He studied science, perfected his body, sharpened his mind and powers of deduction, and utilized technology. He became superhuman through his own effort, adding to his powers element by element.

While such a transformation might seem like a flight of unrealistic fantasy, it's really not. While we may never quite approach Batman's level of prowess, we can build ourselves into men whose abilities far surpass that of the average joe. Don't believe me? Consider Houdini. 

Houdini was an ordinary man who through the force of discipline and hustle taught himself how to escape from any handcuff, chest, prison, straitjacket or safe in the world, hold his breath for almost four minutes, fly one of the first planes in the world, endure freezing temperatures, untie knots with his toes, and charm the pants off of ordinary folks and dignitaries alike. He kept the goal of becoming superhuman ever before him and he attained it.
