6.4 Annotated List of Applications to Symptoms of Central Nervous System Hyper-Function

6.4.1 Psychoneuroimmunology (Improvement of Immune Function for Higher Levels of Vigor, Health, and Wellness)

Just as people can learn to regulate their immune system to fight disease, so will people regulate their internal biochemistry for the highest levels of well-being, including the voluntary production of states of ecstasy, euphoria, and transcendence. It is known that there is an endogenous opiate system in the body functioning through the production of endorphins and encephalins. Learned and voluntary regulation of these natural substances can be readily achieved by applying the Hardt Principles of Internal Feedback.

6.4.2 Corporate Training and Wellness Market

Just as people can learn to regulate their immune system to fight disease, so will people regulate their internal biochemistry for the highest levels of well-being, including the voluntary production of states of ecstasy, euphoria, and transcendence. It is known that there is an endogenous opiate system in the body functioning through the production of endorphins and encephalins. Learned and voluntary regulation of these natural substances can be readily achieved by applying the Hardt Principles of Internal Feedback.

Corporations have continuous needs for training their personnel in skills and knowledge specific to the corporation’s missions. Typically training expenditures fluctuate with the economic cycle. Still, with the current emphasis on ‘downsizing,’ corporations urgently need to do more with fewer personnel, who now works under conditions of greater stress than ever. Stress reduction through brain wave training is a goal easily achieved. Also, there are applications of the Brain Energy Map training methods for teaching all of the highly specialized skills required in modern corporations. Combining the documented increases in creativity with the now documented increases in IQ following the Biocybernaut training, there are compelling reasons for corporations to employ the Biocybernaut training routinely. Just as no modern business would attempt to function without a computer system, very shortly, the Biocybernaut training will be viewed as an essential cost of doing business because it will be impossible to compete with another company whose employees have benefited from a 50% creativity boost and 11.7 points of added IQ, unless one’s own company has also had these brain and mind boosting results. Also, there are improvements in emotional self-control and bonding among team members that will allow fuller use of emotional intelligence (EQ) in groups, organizations, companies, and countries that implement rapidly and broadly effective brain wave feedback training programs like the Biocybernaut Institute Alpha One training.

6.4.3 Human Potential Movement: Individuals Interested in Self-Improvement, Self-Actualization, and Success

A 1987 Arthur D. Little marketing study identified a large market for its products and services among individuals interested in wellness and self-improvement. Defined in terms of age, income, and use of existing health maintaining products and services, this market is a natural fit for our brain wave feedback training. All organizations teaching success orientation, the power of positive thinking, enhanced spiritual awareness, motivational improvements, and health spas are natural allies of Biocybernaut Institute and its licensees, and mutually beneficial strategic alliances and partnerships with such organizations will help the many markets for this technology to grow very rapidly. By sharing marketing strategies among the international licensees, each licensee can develop markets closest to its core team’s expertise, knowing that other teams in other countries are developing other markets with other strategies, which will be shared among the international licensees.

6.4.4 Athletic Peak Performance, Especially for Professional and Olympic Athletes

Unique brain wave changes have now been demonstrated to occur in elite athletes before their best performances. These brain wave changes are readily trainable with our technology and methods. With huge salaries dependent upon their performance, professional athletes will eagerly pay large sums for any training method proven to increase their performance and reduce their chances of injury, especially since injuries often prematurely end an athlete’s career.

We have convincing published scientific evidence that stress can double (for high school athletes) or triple (for college athletes) the chances of football players’ injury. Since we can reduce stress with the Biocybernaut Process™, we can surely reduce football injury rates with this brain activity training. Just as year-round physical training and conditioning have become necessary for those athletes desiring to compete at the highest levels of their sports, mind training and conditioning with the Biocybernaut Process’ soon become an essential part of the training for Olympic and professional athletes. In many cultures, elite athletes are held in high esteem and have a very high profile. Clearly, documented improvements in athletic performance, which are linked to learned changes in the brain waves, will be instant news to millions of people and will motivate many people, currently uninterested in ‘consciousness’ or ‘awareness,’ to expend the effort needed for inner mastery of their own brain waves. Given the high visibility and public profile of athletic heroes, we are assured abundant free publicity about the Biocybernaut Process’s benefits and its Biocybernaut training programs.

Peak performance requires a special state of intense concentration or absorption. This state of unusually intense absorption requires increased EEG alpha activity. (Allman, 1992) Allman reports that the athlete has a big alpha brain wave activity burst just before an athlete’s best shots. This increased alpha before peak athletic performance has been measured in basketball players before free throws, golfers before they putt, and archers and marksmen before they shoot.

Alpha brain wave feedback training can teach athletes how to enter this state of intense absorption or concentration, and this ability can then enhance their athletic performance. In a 16-week college archery course, students had their brain waves measured before and after the course. Those students who became good archers developed the ability to produce big bursts of alpha brain waves just before their shots. With alpha feedback training, this naturally developed ability can be developed much further to produce Olympic quality performances. Also, the feedback-assisted development of alpha wave activity can support and enable improved performance in athletes who somehow fail to develop the increased alpha through their normal training exercises.

Learning to extend one’s peak performance moments (staying in the ‘Zone’) through properly designed EEG feedback training programs is now a realistic goal. Slightly more difficult is the goal of learning how to enter the ‘Zone’ whenever peak performance is required. Attainment of these goals is possible through intensive alpha brain wave feedback training, which promises the rewards of peak performance for athletics, business, science, education, government, the arts, and perhaps in every area of human endeavor where people are in search of excellence.

6.4.5 Military Applications to Training and Peak Performance (Green Berets)

In 1985 U.S. Army Special Forces personnel (Green Berets) were trained in the Biocybernaut Process’. This study, conducted on a secret Army base, demonstrated that this training was highly suited to the most demanding applications of peak performance training. The soldiers were demonstrated to have major improvements in many mission-critical skills and abilities after their brain wave feedback training. The soldiers valued the Biocybernaut Process’ training so highly that two-thirds of them used their ‘voluntary days’ to do additional optional brain wave feedback training. They found that in their system of values, which prized peak performance above almost everything else, that the Biocybernaut Process’ delivered the performance boosts they were seeking.

6.4.6 Meditation Acceleration and Augmentation

Recently published studies (Hardt, 1993) have shown that the 7-day Introductory alpha training produces the same patterns of brain wave changes seen in the most advanced Zen meditators, those with 21 to 40 years of experience. Profound subjective changes also result. Many people who now struggle for years in meditation practice will choose to accelerate their progress through brain activity training. In February of 2000, a Japanese Roshi (Zen master) visiting from his large temple in Japan did the 7-day Alpha One training. He reported that this training ‘doubled [his] understanding of the dimensionality of consciousness.’ He added that the Biocybernaut technology helped him to ‘correct’ aspects of his practice of Zen. He said that it also ‘confirmed’ other aspects of his Zen practice, and overall ‘refined and deepened [his] practice of Zen.’ He shared his experiences with his close friend, another Japanese Roshi, whose name was Cobin Roshi. Cabin Roshi was then the abbot of the Jikoji Zen Center in Los Gatos, California, in the US.

After these two Zen masters had talked together in detail about Yamada Roshi’s experiences in his Biocybernaut Alpha One training, both of these Zen masters, independently, declared their desire to work with the Biocybernaut consciousness expansion technology was so great that if they had to give up their formal affiliation with Zen to do this, they were prepared to do it! In this remarkable way, they acknowledged the power of Biocybernaut technology to enhance the development of consciousness. They were declaring their own remarkable commitment to the work of developing and expanding consciousness, which transcends their commitments to a very ancient and honorable lineage and tradition. I assured them that it would be a high honor for Biocybernaut and me to come to work at Biocybernaut with their titles and their lineages as Zen Roshis. I assured them that it was unnecessary to give up their association with Zen to become a Biocybernaut. They laughed and smiled and were very pleased. Obviously, this is potentially incendiary material given that there are Buddhist politics just as there are Christian politics, Jewish politics, Hindu politics, and Islamic politics. The Biocybernaut Brain Science and the Biocybernaut Training Process transcend ideologies and religions, and politics. Everyone who values happiness above unhappiness can benefit from Biocybernaut training. The one belief that seems to be challenged and undermined by the Biocybernaut training process experiences is atheism. Many atheists who have done the Biocybernaut Alpha One training have subsequently adopted a belief in God or Source or Creator during or after their alpha training. Of more than 4,000 people who have done the Alpha One training, none, to my knowledge, have ever adopted atheism as a result of their experiences and insights in the alpha training. As Peter Russell says in quoting a poem, he concludes his Global Brain video: ‘The enterprise is an exploration into God.’

6.4.7 Creativity Enhancement

One of the fascinating areas of application of this technology is in the enhancement of creativity. The research has shown that even with people who are already highly creative, there can still be large and useful increases in creativity. A group of scientists from Stanford Research Institute was given a one-week program of this training, and this produced an average 50% increase in their creativity. The control group showed no creativity increases. In the mid-1980s, Colin Martindale studied the alpha differences between highly creative people and matched groups of normal people. He found that the creative people had the ability (lacking in normal people) to quickly turn on higher levels of alpha activity when faced with a creative problem. Martindale concluded, ‘Creativity is simply a matter of having the right brain waves.’ Biocybernaut has patented technology and methods that optimize this training of alpha.

6.4.8 IQ Boosting

One of the fascinating areas of application of this technology is in the enhancement of creativity. The research has shown that even with people who are already highly creative, there can still be large and useful increases in creativity. A group of scientists from Stanford Research Institute was given a one-week program of this training, and this produced an average 50% increase in their creativity. The control group showed no creativity increases. In the mid-1980s, Colin Martindale studied the alpha differences between highly creative people and matched groups of normal people. He found that the creative people had the ability (lacking in normal people) to quickly turn on higher levels of alpha activity when faced with a creative problem. Martindale concluded, ‘Creativity is simply a matter of having the right brain waves.’ Biocybernaut has patented technology and methods that optimize this training of alpha.

In 1998 Biocybernaut Institute established a 7-month dedicated installation for Precious Moments in a retreat location in Illinois. The Alpha One training was provided for all of the shareholders, top people in the company, family members, associates, and friends. Everyone who trained there was given an IQ test before and after their Alpha One training. The posttests were taken an average of 4 months after the pre-tests, and some were a year later. Statistical testing showed no IQ boost tendency to fade over the one-year period after the alpha training. The IQ boost was stable even one year later. There was a statistically significant increase in the composite IQ that averaged 11.7 points. Some people increased more in their fluid IQ (mathematical and logical). In contrast, others increased more in their crystallized IQ (verbal) scores. Further research will identify the brain regions responsible for this differential responsivity of IQ to regional changes in alpha brain activity. The IQ boosting worked equally well for participants ranging in age from 10 to 64 and helped low IQ people and helped the geniuses.

6.4.9 Education, Acceleration of Learning, Rapid Attainment of Mastery

One of the most powerful applications of this technology is in the area of education. The brain activity training systems can detect when the brain is receptive to learning, determine the topics of receptivity, and provide training to increase learning abilities. It will soon be possible to learn dozens of different knowledge areas simultaneously with our training systems. Learning can be assessed with advanced MEG technologies, which can measure activity in the hippocampus, which only occurs when presented material has been learned. There are discrete brain activity criteria to determine when a lesson has been learned, and the student should go on to the next level of difficulty. The computer can also determine which sensory modalities are best at any moment for teaching a given student the lesson at that moment. Brain distractibility can be detected before the attention wanders so that the lesson can be instantly modified for novelty and interest. Also, there are specific training methods to reduce each person’s distractibility and increase their concentration abilities.

6.4.10 Development of Latent Mental Skills and Exceptional Mind Abilities

It is possible to describe ESP as a profound degree of rapport. The brain activity states underlying rapport is now well-characterized and easily trainable with our methods. Professional psychics have shown radically altered brain activity as they activate their intuitive abilities. As we develop catalogs of exceptional mental abilities and their associated brain activity states using the Prescriptive Brain Mapping technology, we will rapidly have the ability to train normal people to manifest the mental skills of the most gifted individuals. We will also develop a ‘Library of Alexandria’ of gifted individuals and spiritual masters so that masters in one tradition can, within a few weeks, experience some of the essences of other traditions and become truly ecumenical. This will profoundly contribute to world peace, as spiritual leaders of different traditions come to know in direct and personal ways, the essence of other spiritual traditions. All forms of mind-giftedness will be mapped and cataloged and thus will be available for transmission to others with access to this technology who are willing to apply themselves to mind training disciplines with the Biocybernaut technologies.

6.4.11 Entertainment, Virtual Reality, Truly Interactive Games, and Inner Explorations

Brain activity training is, above all else, FUN! The current excitement for video games and virtual reality is a prologue for the excitement (and the demand), which will attend our 3 or more sensory modality brain activity feedback. When feedback involves 3ormore sensory modalities, the virtual reality very quickly jumps into place and becomes experienced as ‘THE reality.’ People will quickly and easily experience a brand new holographic reality in which their brain activity is featured front and center. This will be the ultimate video game, the defining experience of virtual reality. The Lebanese poet Khalil Gibran wrote, ‘What man would not burn his heart as incense before a God that listened to his prayers and granted him his desires?’ At least in virtual reality (the Holodeck of Star Trek), this situation is attainable with Biocybernaut technology. We will need the entire creativity enhancement possible with our own ongoing alpha training to keep up with this demand area.

6.4.12 Research into Brain/Mind Functions

Our own research laboratories worldwide will work continuously to develop new applications of this technology in every area of human endeavor. We may also wish to license the technology to allied research laboratories of other corporations who will become our strategic partners in strategic alliances.

All of these more than two-dozen benefits are found in the many different application areas of the Biocybernaut Process and they are really byproducts of learned improvements in central nervous system functioning. All of the benefits shown by scientifically accepted meditation studies are also likely to be available through the Biocybernaut Process; however, they are likely to be available faster and easier and for a much greater range of people who would never try or persist long enough at meditation.
