Mind Modifications

Your brain is a computer, which can be programmed by you.


All is flux, nothing stays still.

Heraclitus (c. 535 BC - 475 BC)

This site has been dormant for a few years, the biggest reasons being lack of time, lack of energy or a combination of both.

Now, I hope to reboot the site and pick up where I left off.

Only those older posts which were somehow valuable and still contain good information have been kept. For example, many links from a few years back have already vanished from the internet, so there is no point in keeping posts which basically consists of such links. The older posts were expanded with pictures and some additions.

The original idea with the site was to discover new techniques and handle them like this:

The process

That is, learn various techniques, use them for some time, evaluate them and then distill the main ideas into small, short and practical instructions so that the readers can reduce the time from zero to skill. This is still my aim and this is what I hope to achieve over time.

It takes time and energy to study, learn and experiment with various techniques well enough to be able to comment on those more than superficially. Since I have to work and do all sorts of other things as well, expect updates occasionally; there certainly will not be posts on a weekly basis.
