Now then… While I am on the band wagon of having a pop at pseudo-scence and its proliferation in the fields realting o my work at the moment… I thought I would highlight something which may well bring a very large grin to your face… I do not want to influence your experience of this, but you may possibly find it hilarious.
During this past week, a few readers have expressed their disappointment of me not being very open-minded about things, so I am going to use Don Robertsons words to introduce this clip:
“If the whole point of this pseudo-scientific mush is that the techniques used stimulate the brain, improve intelligence and language and make you sharp, then the strangely vacant, slow-talking, and incoherent man whom Paxman interviews (who thinks processed foods contain no water and the body is composed of “electrical circuits”) isn’t exactly a walking advert for his own methods, to be quite blunt about it.”
Go have a look at this clip if you get time… Be open-minded and do not roll about laughing, or you’ll be in trouble.
Ok, I’ll quit the whining, childish behaviours and fun poking and get on another track tomorrow… Heck, I was teaching regression techniques at the weekend, and trying out modafinil, some people are really into the frequently asked questions here, so… maybe I have been regressing this week and acting like I was back at school. 😉
Brilliant! That cheered me up this evening. I loved the expression on the faces of the class. They really looked like they were suppressing so much smirking and eye-rolling. Did you get the feeling that they were much calmer in their classes because they thought that their teacher was obviously cracked…and best not to do anything to upset her?
The cranial nerve explanation had me snorting as well. Brain gym obviously doesn’t help with retention of human anatomy since that was completely, woefully wrong.
And as for getting the blood flowing to the brain? I believe that one. Prancing around would indeed make you feel more alert. As would the comedy value of watching your loopy teacher 😉
And, oh my God. If the brain gym makes you as switched off and vacant as the American guy, with a bizarre lack of affect…then toss me the processed foods, quick!
