Polyphasic Exercise

Since polyphasic sleep has given me an abundance of extra free time each day, I’ve decided to devote some of that time to improving my fitness. I’ve been exercising regularly for over 15 years now (with some off periods never lasting more than a few months), but my focus has been almost entirely on aerobic…

Polyphasic Sleep Seinfeld Episode

I’ve been told there’s a Seinfeld episode where Kramer attempts polyphasic sleep. Of course it doesn’t go quite as well for him as it did for me. I haven’t watched Seinfeld in a long time, but given how often Seinfeld re-runs are aired, I figured that particular episode is bound to come up again. I…

Do It Now

When going to college many years ago, I decided to challenge myself by setting a goal to see if I could graduate in only three semesters, taking the same classes that people would normally take over a four-year period. This article explains in detail all the time management techniques I used to successfully pull this…

Million Dollar Experiment – $20,000 Manifested

The Million Dollar Experiment is up to about $20,000 now, with 310 public participants, 89 of which are already in the money. 25 people report receiving more than $100 so far. Obviously all of this info is reported via the honor system, so feel free to interpret it however you see fit. One of the…

More Musings on Reality, the Scientific Method, and the Cure for Dandruff

Consider this a continuation of the original post on this subject. The Million Dollar Experiment isn’t going to prove anything even if it works. It’s totally unscientific. Of course it won’t prove anything to you. It wasn’t designed for that purpose. But don’t you realize you’re just deluding yourself? Precisely. That’s the whole point. Huh?…

Musings on Reality, the Scientific Method, and the Cure for Dandruff

In this post I’ll do a Q&A to address the pattern of the most common reader questions/comments I’ve been receiving lately, especially with respect to the Intention-Manifestation Model, the Polyphasic Sleep Experiment, and the Million Dollar Experiment. Steve, it seems you approach certain topics in a rather unscientific way. You’re right. Are you saying that…

Skepticism May Be Harmful or Fatal if Swallowed

Skepticism means to use doubt and disbelief as tools for understanding reality, with the hope that the resulting insights will allow one to behave intelligently. Skepticism originally came about as a form of opposition to dogma. The general idea behind skepticism is to avoid swallowing foolish beliefs. That’s all well and good, but today it’s…

Proving Intention-Manifestation Works

Several people have suggested to me that we alter the Million Dollar Experiment to make it more scientific and controlled in order to objectively prove one way or the other whether the intention-manifestation model works. There’s only one problem with that — it’s impossible. Intention-manifestation works on an entirely different level than cause-and-effect. To add…

Unclaimed Property That’s Rightfully Yours

In accordance with the intention of the Million Dollar Experiment, I’m on the lookout for simple ways to put more money into your pocket. Here’s one that my wife recently discovered. It hasn’t generated any money for us, but it has put some extra money into the pockets of friends and relatives. The limitation is…

Robert Blum’s Manifestation Story

Here’s another great manifestation story I received from one of our Million Dollar Experiment participants, Robert Blum. I like this story because it helps drive home the point that this is not a scientific experiment, and scientific skepticism will only block you from getting results with it. Here’s Robert’s story (reprinted with permission): Hi Steve,…
