How to Be Smarter, Increase Your IQ & Become Limitless

“Today, the greatest single source of wealth is between your ears. Today, wealth is contained in brainpower, not brutepower.” -Brian Tracy Reading time: 10-15 minutes Do yo ever wish you were just a bit smarter? That you could think a bit faster, be wittier, and solve complex problems with ease? Me too. Why? Getting good grades and holding my own in intellectual conversations was never particularly hard, but there’s always been a few people a step ahead of me. And to be honest, I was a bit jealous. But I’ve always figured there wasn’t too much I could do about it. Today, I’m going to share with you something extremely powerful, something I’ve discovered recently and haven’t shared with anyone yet: Intelligence is not a set thing. How It All Started: Watching Limitless This whole adventure started a few months ago, when I decided to watch the movie Limitless . “You know they say we can only access 20% of our brain? As I watched that movie, something switched on inside me. So I got busy.

Brainwave Entrainment CDs, Brainwave Meditation CDs, Binaural Beats Gnaural: A Binaural-Beat Audio Generator Image-Streaming How to Image-Stream What you need is an external focus to describe your images to. A tape recorder with blank tape, or a simple Dictaphone like every office used to have, provides you a potential listener for that all-essential focus. Of that half of you who did get an image, some found a strong, clear, definite image or set of images, while others just got a glimpse, a faint impression which you might think was hardly worth describing, or weren't certain whether you were just making up the idea rather than seeing an image — — Yet whatever you got, the key is to examine and describe it aloud, in as rich detail as possible even if you feel at first as if you are "forcing" it and "making up" some of it to fill your description to your external focus listener. That is Image-Streaming. Even if your imagery is already clear and vivid, you will be astonished at how much more so it quickly becomes when you describe it in this way, while continuing to examine it. What If You Didn't Get Pictures?

Creatine May Boost Brain Performance Study Shows Intelligence, Memory Improvements With the Dietary Supplement Why do I need to register or sign in for WebMD to save? We will provide you with a dropdown of all your saved articles when you are registered and signed in. Aug. 13, 2003 -- Creatine may not just be for jocks anymore. In a study from Australia, people who took creatine for six weeks scored better on tests measuring intelligence and memory than those who did not take it. "It is a huge leap to say, based on this study, that taking creatine will help people perform better on tests," says Stephen W. Continue reading below... Performance Booster Creatine is an amino acid produced naturally in the kidneys, liver, and pancreas. In this study, researcher Caroline Rae, PhD, and colleagues from the University of Sydney examined the impact of creatine supplementation on mental function. Vegetarians were chosen because they tend to have lower overall creatine levels. Creatine's Safety Unknown

EPOC Features Based on the latest developments in neuro-technology, Emotiv presents a revolutionary personal interface for human computer interaction. Emotiv EPOC is a high resolution, multi-channel, wireless neuroheadset. The EPOC uses a set of 14 sensors plus 2 references to tune into electric signals produced by the brain to detect the user’s thoughts, feelings and expressions in real time. The EPOC connects wirelessly to PCs running Windows or MAC OS X. Experience the fantasy of controlling and influencing the virtual environment with your mind. Please note: If you or any of your 3rd party applications require access to raw EEG data, you will need to purchase the Emotiv EEG Neuroheadset. Headset Features Detection Suites The detection suites that are incorporated into the Emotiv EPOC are: Expressiv™ Suite The Expressiv suite uses the signals measured by the neuroheadset to interpret player facial expressions in real-time. The limited edition EPOC is available World Wide. Windows Requirements

OpenYou - emotiv epoc mind control device If you are one of those who waited with bated breath for the mind control device of the future, wait a little longer. The promise of this technology was that you could control things (on your computer) with your mind. As with the previous generation ( Notably the lightstone that came with Wild Divine) there is far more hype than reality. The Epoc headset does represent a leap forward in what it senses. The epoc headset, by contrast, actually measures electrical signals right off your scalp. Does it read actual EEG data? It is worth noting that there are some games promised for future development, but also that these games do not work. The training screens are marginally useful, except that they kind of work, and kind of don't. At first I thought it was something you need to practice, and of course, this is probably the case. The headset also has gyroscopic head motion sensors, which are the most reliable thing it has going on. It is not just me, either. Again, for emphasis:

Neurofeedback for Asperger's, ADHD, and Tourette's The brain has several brainwave frequencies working all at the same time. Some are long, slow waves with a low frequency. Some are short, tight waves with a high frequency. You need the full range of frequencies because you use each one in different situations. DELTA WAVES (0.5 - 3 Hz): Very low frequency. THETA WAVES (3 - 7 Hz): Low frequency. ALPHA WAVES (8 - 13 Hz): Calm frequency. SENSORIMOTOR RHYTHMS (13-15 Hz): The SMR waves are different from the other frequencies because they are produced very deep in the brain, often in different places. BETA WAVES (16 - 20 Hz): High frequency. HIGH BETA WAVES (19 + Hz): Shrill frequency. the future will eat itself » Blog Archive » Meditation with the hacked Mattel Mindflex January 26, 2011 - 6:16 pm I did this hack with the Mattel Mindflex: I installed the visualizer software and could totally see the spectral bands of my brain taken from the single electrode which was pretty, but meaningless. It’s measuring: Delta (1-3Hz): sleepTheta (4-7Hz): relaxed, meditativeLow Alpha (8-9Hz): eyes closed, relaxedHigh Alpha (10-12Hz)Low Beta (13-17Hz): alert, focusedHigh Beta (18-30Hz)Low Gamma (31-40Hz): multi-sensory processingHigh Gamma (41-50Hz) I have no way to verify the pre-processing done by the headset as it obfuscates the waveform. Attention, Meditation and High Gamma are significantly(p<0.05) different. Also, there has been another study on meditation changing brain structure in as little as 8 weeks of doing a small amount of meditation every day: Without more information on the preprocessing, this headset couldn’t be used in our lab.
