I was sitting in our recording studio Sunday morning with the cuppa coffee when it hit me:  I’m a damn fine studio builder and when it comes to mixing, yeah, I can probably hold me own.

Thing is – and it’s weird to sit in a studio and contemplate this – I’m honestly not much of a musician.

Sure, I can wring music out of many things – and I can beat on drums a bit, but not with enough consistency, style, of panache to have the remotest of chances to make performance-level music.

Tools?  Presonus mixer, some dialed-in large diaphragm condenser mics that I’ve upgraded with improved electronics.  Not quite as good as a $1,600 Neumann TLM-193 Cardioid Condenser Microphone, but certainly as good as the lower-end of the Neumann line.  Especially with a choice of pre-amps including a 16-channel old-school analog mixer and a tube-type mic pre.  Yep, we can bend sounds around pretty damn good.

Toss in our fascination with use of sound (using a wide range of VST’s like Garritan World Instruments) and adjustable delay lines for the back-of-house speakers…well, most audiophiles would be impressed.

Except, I’m not much of a musician, as I was saying.

This got me to pondering how – with age 70 only a couple of short months off – how can I hack the problem.

Yes, there may be a way:  Use of Past Life Regression.

I’ve already got a strong sense that human life is semi-repeating.  As I explained in my latest book, the body inhabited is sort of like birds coming back to rest on the same, or quite similar phone lines…life after life.

But, here’s the key part:  I’m pretty sure that knowledge – like how to play musical instruments – is coded into our DNA.

I think the two biggest breakthroughs in education will come from use of “light crowns” and past life regression therapy.

The light crown, as you’ll remember from my book on hacking space-time, is a love wave 660-1,000 nm light source headband. It’s purpose is to :”recharge the brain.”  Every time a neuron fires there’s a photon released, so putting photons back into the brain makes sense.

A quick search of the government’s PubMed.gov website reveals a quickly-growing series of papers indicating that not only does low-level red laser-light therapy heal brain injury, speed bone healing, but it also amps-up athletic performance as explained in Clinical and scientific recommendations for the use of photobiomodulation therapy in exercise performance enhancement and post-exercise recovery: current evidence and future directions..

Which is why, several years ago on the Peoplenomics side of the house, we speculated that one reason people “bow down to those wearing crowns” is that illuminating certain parts of the scalp with certain light frequencies may enhance lot’s of other aspects of your being.  The gems of a crown acting as light filters, right?

In my experiments, I built a number of LED “light crowns” and used 660 and 700 nm LEDs with placement over the trigeminal nerve packs (temples, both sides) and an array over the center of the forehead.

To date, I haven’t worked out a means of structured learning to the degree where testing learning (and retention) could be measured in an objectified way.  That project is on our GetTuit  which is one file up from the RoundTuit file.

The OTHER track to retrieve deeply stored DNA-encoded skills would be to undergo a series of past life regressions.

Do they work?  Depends who you ask.  But, this Wikipedia entry sums up the process neatly and – here’s the catch!past life work involves recalling memories:

“The technique used during past-life regression involves the subject answering a series of questions while hypnotized to reveal identity and events of alleged past lives, a method similar to that used in recovered memory therapy and one that, similarly, often misrepresents memory as a faithful recording of previous events rather than a constructed set of recollections. The use of hypnosis and suggestive questions can tend to leave the subject particularly likely to hold distorted or false memories.[3] The source of the memories is often more likely cryptomnesia and confabulations that combine experiences, knowledge, imagination and suggestion or guidance from the hypnotist than recall of a previous existence. Once created, those memories are indistinguishable from memories based on events that occurred during the subject’s life.[1][2] Memories reported during past-life regression have been investigated, and revealed historical inaccuracies that are easily explained through a basic knowledge of history, elements of popular culture or books that discuss historical events. Experiments with subjects undergoing past-life regression indicate that a belief in reincarnation and suggestions by the hypnotist are the two most important factors regarding the contents of memories reported.[

It is only logical that IF life is cyclical and we come back time and again, that at some point we would live as male, female, and some of the between ranges.  And sure, in a media immersive world, it would be only natural that “day residue” as dream experts like Chris McCleary might label it – would show up in hypnosis.  A kind of “waking-state dream.”

So here’s the project for 2019 broken down into a work plan.

  • Get back on a regular light crown use schedule (I tend to “overcharge” if not careful – use of a LC can, in my experience, be very much like too much coffee…speed perhaps?
  • Tackle a new topic – maybe make another run at ingesting Stephen Wolfram’s non-trivial The Mathematica Book, Fifth Edition.
  • Try to apply some of his concepts to the trading techniques that we cover on the Peoplenomics side of things.

These three projects ought to be doable in January.  The past life regression is another problem.  Here’s the work plan:

  • Find a qualified past life regression therapist who is interested in “bringing back” skills and talents from past lives into here and now.
  • Go through a specific skill retrieval (music, advanced math (more calculus anyone?), or superb woodworking or gem-crafting skills.

I favor music because other than a run-in with piano as a student of Mrs. Shimamura and my exposure in studio and broadcast settings, I’m useless on things like  guitars, violins, any of the woodwinds or brass.  Hell, even being able to carry a tune on a harmonica would be great.

I know this is a far-fetched idea, but I’ve had it on my to do list for years and now it seems like it’s time to move on it.

Elaine and I are willing to travel a ways to find the right facilitator so if you know of a great one – not someone who does it as a part-time hobby – please send me a note (George@ure.net).

The early work has already begun – that’s my read the literature approach.  Some of the readings:

This is one aspect of life seemed like a good background process to work in the year ahead.  I’ll let you know how far it gets.

Other than a big, overstuffed chair in our living room that seems to move on its own lately (about 2-inches to the south east) at unpredictable intervals – but evidenced by dimples in the rug from the old location to it’s “new place” – we have been somewhat woo-woo free lately.

Kinda miss the really odd/woo-woo stuff…

Write when you get rich,  and have a very Happy New Year.
