9.3 Green Beret’s Experience of Shared Feedback™

You will remember reading earlier in Chapter 4 about the training we did for Green Berets at a secret army base. Several years before we did that work, we trained two Army Lt. Cols from Army Intelligence. They did two weeks of training, the first being their individual Alpha One training, and the second week they did share feedback, sitting side-by-side in the same chamber and hearing both their own feedback tones and each other’s feedback tones. They also saw their own scores and each other’s scores. One of those Army officers is now a retired colonel. Here, retired Col. John Alexander describes his shared feedback experience in his inspiring book, The Warrior’s Edge.

‘During the second phase, week 2, of my training with Lt. Col. MacLachlan, he and I were trained together in the same chamber in what Dr. Hardt calls “Shared Feedback.” The EEG was wired separately for both of us but recorded on the same chart. Our brain waves became not merely similar but almost identical. My brain waves seemed to increase the amplitude and speed to replicate Lt. Col. MacLachlan directly. Clearly, MacLachlan was driving our Shared Feedback experience, for my pattern became similar to the pattern he developed in the prior week of individual [non-shared] feedback when we were in separate training chambers.’

EEG alpha training:

‘This experiment suggests the potential for linking or entangling the brain waves of two or more individuals. The potential for getting groups of individuals on task and working better together is extensive and exciting. Colloquially, our language has incorporated this idea for a long time, perhaps foretelling what Dr. Hardt can now train with his technology. We talk about “getting on the same wavelength,” or “getting our heads together,” or “tuning in,” and so on. Our Shared Feedback EEG graphs in Dr. Hardt’s lab indicate that this precise effect may be voluntarily controllable.’

‘An interesting personal dimension developed during these sessions. Both MacLachlan and I noted that secrets would “slip” from one of us to the other person from time to time. Although this phenomenon was not being specifically tested for in the training we were doing, other people training together with Dr. Hardt’s Shared Feedback methodology also found that they sometimes would simultaneously – and non verbally – acquire information about each other.’

‘We can infer from this both the potential of telepathic communication when our brains are in sync, and also that there must be trust and intimacy between individuals participating in this kind of training. Clearly, our EEG charts in Dr. Hardt’s lab indicate the viability of EEG alpha training as well as a way to enhance collective thought through shared feedback. We believe this may be the next frontier for EEG training.’

‘Alpha enhancement can benefit corporations and groups of people who must interact with creatively continuingly, as well as individuals, by reducing the time it takes for individuals to think productively and collectively.’

‘For warriors, particularly those operating in small groups, such as special operations forces or high-level staff, who must turn out coherent policy and plans – such training and the opportunity to think creatively together can enhance their ability to function and, ultimately, to survive.’

Moodscale testing & review

One of the tests trainees participate in during training. The scale can yield measures of different moods that the trainee might not be aware of.

Channels of EEG Information

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that detects electrical activity in your brain using small, metal discs (electrodes) attached to your scalp. Your brain cells communicate via electrical impulses and are active all the time, even when you’re asleep. This activity shows up as wavy lines on an EEG recording.

Premium Double 7 day Training

The 7-Day Premium Double training provides double the amount of Neurofeedback training time as the 7-Day Premium Training. The 7-Day Premium Alpha One Training has been scientifically proven to deliver significant beneficial results including continued improvement after the Training. The 7-Day Premium Double is an intense experience that enhances the experience of the Trainees and maximizes the results. In addition to providing double the Neurofeedback training time as the Premium 7-Day training, the Premium Double offers a gradual increase in the number of EEG head sites that the Trainee is given Neurofeedback. So the Premium Double gives double the amount of time in the feedback chamber and it works up to double the number of head sites at which the trainee is given feedback.

Premium 7 day Training

The Biocybernaut Premium is the 7-day training program that is the core Biocybernaut offering and with which all of our scientific papers have been produced. The 7-Day Alpha One Training is scientifically proven in peer-reviewed scientific publications, to deliver significant beneficial results to the Trainee, including the Trainee’s continued improvement after leaving the Training.

5 Day Intensive

This Training is based on the Premium Double 7-Day Training. It is for those people who cannot find the time to get away for the full 7-Day Training. The Trainee will experience neurofeedback training twice a day and will have an incremental increase on the head sites they will receive feedback.
