I think it should be closer to the cost of other books and cds, and maybe even check-outable from a library. People that are already conscious and persuing personal development will pay these amounts for these producs but what about skeptics? Or even just unconscious people who could become conscious by reading them? It's like intentionally keeping these ideas secret.
Hi Allirowe, I completely understand how you feel. What's more, I am usually skeptical of these types of ideas and concepts. I like to know/experience these types of things for myself, or I'll never truly be satisfied.
So eventually I learned to be more aggressive in proving these things to myself so I WOULD be satisfied, and once I was satisfied, I wasn't as concerned anymore with other people's skeptical feelings about the subject.
So one of the first things I do if I become interested in a subject is to deeply (and critically) investigate it and filter out any junk, BS, or scams long before I even consider paying anything on it. (If I think it's genuine after that, then the money I spend on it is worth it)
Take the Bio-circuits for example, I was immediately skeptical, and I still hold a slight skeptical attitude towards them. After investigating them, and scrutinizing the "double blind studies" about subjects choosing the "real" bio-circuits over the fake ones, I was curious enough to buy a set.
I was still skeptical too! But I was surprised to have actually experience what they described in the literature, even the part about lying in one for too long and feeling overstimulated.....
Still, I understand your point. Some, if not all of the products on this thread can be either built in your own more cheaply, and for programs there are either different free versions that can do almost the same thing.
For example, with the bio-circuits, they can be built at home if you have at least 4 long copper speaker wires, and 4 copper screen plates. Or to go even further (or cheaper
) if you're creative enough, you can even use what you can find in your own home right now, as long you know how to build it right and connect them properly.
And there are many methods, techniques and discoveries out there waiting to be read and tried- I think focusing, practicing and being persistent is the key.
For example with D.T.I one simple version of it involves simply imagining putting on the head of someone else who has a skill you want...
So in one way, you can use a simple free voicless meditation program you found somewhere and get awesome results, it's what you do with your mind and focus while listening to it that really makes a difference in my opinion.
Still if there is something specific you're interested in, but it's expensive please let us know .......
Acting Like Godot- I can't say for sure, but it looks like another basic example of it, whether it was D.T.I or not.
It reminds me of an article where a person was being bullied, so he listened to a special hypnosis tape on magnetism (paraliminals again) where he modeled Darth Vader. The article said the bullyings stopped
