I want to try that helmet!
I tried putting a magnet to my forehead a few days ago. I am not sure how powerful the magnet was, but I did feel its affects on my frontal lobe. I don't know if any of you read this article
about clicking the amygdala, but that is what it felt like when I put the magnet to my forehead near the third eye for around 10 seconds, it had the sensation of clicking it forward. I pulled it back shortly because I was somewhat nervous about reprecussions from doing this.
The day after the magnet experience, I had a ton of very vivid lucid dreams. I recorded three false awakenings which is very uncommon for me. I am debating whether to try the magnet again and see if I attain the same results to disprove the idea of it being a coincidence.
