NeuroHeckler.com is born
After being bombarded by an add on facebook that I thought was embarrassingly bad put out by a Neuro Group selling a nootropic I thought. --They need to take more of their product.
I posted some comment about no wanting to end up like the guy they had selected to rep their product. The funny thing is I ended up having a back and forth with them that I thought was funny. I made a Video having fun at the idea that you can get all kinds of brain benefits by thinking about the product.
Out of this the Neuro Heckler Collective was born. This is a page that I hope will allow me to point out some of the things in alt health that I think are funny that people tend to not talk about because they don't notice or because it would be bad for business. Either way laughing is good for your health.
But I was thinking about the Neuo Hacker Collective and why I took the time to respond so much which I rarely do on Facebook. Then I realized that its opportunity cost. You see the cost of doing or selling any one thing is the ability to do or sell anything else in that space and time.
I don't for one second think that I know more about the brain than the panel of people on the board of the neuro hacker collective but I think that I have a different focus that leaves the sellers of chemicals either ignorant or consciously overlooking the truth for profit or some other reason.
If you have followed my blogs hopefully you will see this but I'll review.
There is you, your brain, your cells, your mitochondria, your electrons - now we are sub atomic.
The cells are powered by the mitochondria and in the mitochondria is the process of electron chain transfer. Lets make it simple, light (which tells us time while giving us charge) goes through steps to create ATP or chemical energy to power the cell. Chemistry or the substances in qualia are subject to the things that happen beneath them.
My point is that for me my focus is on light, water , magnetism. Dealing with increasing my charge while communicating the right time to my body and brain. Nature has given substances to work with physics in this way like DHA and iodine. I could go on but through the entire process there is an almost endless list of brain boosting things that can be done that are in line with nature. The nootropic they are selling is not natural. I would much rather eat an oyster while engaging natural neuro genesis than get on that substance and my brain as its charge increases running on an optimal fuel source of light and fat will improve. I will get focus, memory and the other vague words that their pill creates. Do they not know this or like so many in health are they trying desperately to find a "hack" or a cheat pill.
So spend the next 10 years in sun light, in nature eating high fish, high fat, working out and learning as much as you can about as much as you can. The problem with that pill like many others is that if it gives you a benefit you stay on it and if it doesn't you will have wasted your money but either way its unnatural chemistry. All drugs alter the brain. I could list out a number of different drugs that will make you feel great and increase your focus ect. the problem is if they are unnatural the mechanisms the body has to regulate them are removed so you end up with an equal and opposite problem. A few more points I think the collective needs to be reminded of.
Sometimes a better functioning brain just means you do irrational things optimally. There is a necessity for wisdom and discernment.
The cost of focusing on this product is the time and energy that could have been given to providing real brain solutions for people that are deeper than chemistry and share the truth of the mitochondria and light.
Placebo is 30% if you are financially invested its more. Which is why my empty pill joke is funny to me.
Observation alters outcome
If you take money from something you are no longer able to view with unbiased reason.
It takes intelligent people to resist the temptation to take it, sell it and join in on the community that comes from these types of things. As a former bio hacker the logo, the "collective" and the brain boosting claims are appealing. The test is can a person see past the shiny and stay rational. Everything about the tech bio hacker world is great except that it doesn't work. Nature is the solution. She has been testing this stuff for millions of years so before you alter your brain with pills that cost you money stop think critically and ask yourself
-Am I looking for a quick fix because I don't want to make the sacrifices that are need for a better brain naturally? The same case can be made for steroids and muscles. They work but they come at a price and I am natural. There is just as much temptation to grow my brain enhanced as my muscles but I know that those things are quick fixes that nature frown upon.
It is wisdom on intelligence that says that there are no cheats in this life.
Plus lets not take things too seriously. Some of those ads were hilarious so thanks.
The idea of a group of broke cartoon super villains wanting to take over the world altering peoples brains by convincing the world to buy their pills that alter there brains is pretty funny.
