Polyphasic Sleep Long-Term Consequences

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

One long-term consequence of the polyphasic sleep experiments I did in 2005-2006 is that I still retain the ability to fall asleep very quickly. Enough time has passed that I suspect this is a permanent change. These days when I decide to go to sleep, I can typically fall asleep within 30 seconds or less. […]

Co-Creation, Mind Control, and Subjective Reality

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

I often prep for upcoming workshops by walking around my house talking out loud, as if I’m speaking to an audience. It’s not the ideas I’m trying to polish though. I do this to get better at being in the flow of inspiration as I communicate, maintaining the right balance of head and heart. Inevitably […]

Your Simulated Reality

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Last night I had a really cool lucid dream. It started out as a regular dream that involved a bunch of robbers stealing items from a large house. I was trying to foil the robbers’ plans. At some point I realized that I was dreaming and became lucid. I ignored the robbers after that and […]

Life in a Dream World

Monday, August 16th, 2010

Today is Day 24 of my 30-day inspiration experiment, which also includes viewing everything through the lens of subjective reality. In this update I’ll share a number of observations on what it’s really been like to view life as a dream for more than three weeks straight. A Roller Coaster of Emotions Throughout this trial […]

Dream Lovemaking

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

One thing I was very curious about was how the dream world perspective would affect my experience of physical intimacy. Would it seem very different if I knew that the woman was a character in my dream world, a projection of some part of me? This past weekend I had a chance to enjoy some […]

Subjective Relationships

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

“What is the primary goal?” “You should know, Professor. You programmed me.” – War Games Well… this 30-day trial of inspiration is absolutely amazing. I’m so far down the rabbit hole of subjective reality that I can perceive little else but rabbits now. And there sure are a LOT of rabbits down here! Today is […]

Lessons From Ron Lewison (1938-2008)

Monday, August 18th, 2008

On Thursday a good friend and fellow Toastmaster named Ron Lewison was in a serious car accident. He was rushed to the hospital, but his injuries were too severe, including a broken pelvis and a punctured lung. Shortly after his family arrived, he passed away. He was 69 years old and is survived by his […]

Recovering From Illness

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

The reason I haven’t posted the New York City trip review yet is that I’ve been sick the past several days.  Erin and I co-wrote the review last week (about 6000 words), but I still need to add the photos.  I’ll have it online by the end of the week. This was a strange illness.  I had a mild cold near […]

Proof

Friday, October 19th, 2007

A forum member recently shared the Carl Sagan quote, “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”  Sagan is credited with popularizing that slight rephrasing of an older quote by Marcello Truzzi:  “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.” These quotes assume an objective universe, which is a rather biased way of looking at reality — and not particularly accurate.  […]
