Thought Ripples

Within hours after posting A Dose of Caffeine for Your Consciousness, I went downstairs and saw that my wife was watching a movie. She was watching Mystery Men, which is about a group of inept but well-intentioned superheroes. This was a movie we’d seen when it first came out in 1999 but not since then…

A Dose of Caffeine for Your Consciousness

Would your experience of shared objective reality continue to exist if you stopped believing in it? What would happen if you started to suspect, wonder, and maybe even believe that reality is at least partially created by your own thoughts? What is this non-scientific poppycock I’m spouting? Let’s address the “scientific” objections first then, shall…

Is Becoming Wealthy Inherently Evil?

Is it morally wrong to attempt to become wealthy? It’s no surprise to me that the Million Dollar Experiment, while mostly getting a highly positive reception, has also uncovered some opposition from people who believe the pursuit of financial wealth is inherently greedy, selfish, immoral, or just plain evil. How do you feel about the…

Million Dollar Experiment – Chitika Earnings Revealed Plus a Surprise

I recently contacted Chitika to make sure it was OK for me to publicly reveal how much I’m earning from their eMiniMalls program, since I wanted to share this data as part of the Million Dollar Experiment. They told me it was OK to do so, but I couldn’t reveal more detailed stats like the…

Million Dollar Experiment – Submissions Rolling In

Wow… the new group-oriented Million Dollar Experiment is off to a great start. I already have a backlog of 50 unprocessed submissions from people who want to participate publicly, and more are arriving every hour. It’s obvious I won’t be able to manually keep the list updated, as it’s likely to grow into the hundreds…

Million Dollar Experiment – Version 2.0

I’ve received some wonderfully positive feedback about the Million Dollar Experiment. This is version 2.0. It’s become very clear that other people are interested in running this experiment too. But I have an even better idea. Why not turn this into a group project, aiming to manifest wealth and abundance for everyone who wishes to…

Personal Development Product Reviews

I’ve been getting more and more inquiries from people wanting me to review their personal development books, ebooks, audio programs, DVDs, software, and other products, ostensibly in the hopes that I’ll recommend such products in this blog. I figured I might as well post my policy on this publicly for anyone else who has the…

Million Dollar Experiment – First Dollar Earned

Well, that didn’t take long. Yesterday as I was typing up the Million Dollar Experiment (which I just posted this morning), I decided to try adding some Chitika eMiniMalls ads to the bottom of the sidebar. I just signed up with this ad service after hearing other bloggers speak highly of it — some bloggers…

Million Dollar Experiment

Since the polyphasic sleep experiment has gone so well, I figured it would be nice to try another interesting experiment in a different area of life. This one will be financial in nature. I’m going to see if I can manifest $1 million by using the intention-manifestation model. First some background info on my financial…
