Science, Pseudoscience, and the Disdain for the Unexplainable
Have you been trying to change yourself? The bad news? It's hard to do. In truth, most efforts to change fail no matter how hard you try. Maybe not right away. But eventually. The good news? There's a kind of change that doesn't fail, the kind we refer to as "ahas." Moreover, since ahas change your very nature, these changes last for life.
Are you willing to put in the effort? Then you too can learn to have ahas. Not once a decade or once a year, but many times a day. In order to do this though, you'll first need to learn to put yourself into the one state of mind wherein it's possible to have ahas—the state of mind babies live in for the first two years of life.
Being in this state is why babies learn so much so quickly. Being in this state is why hypnotists have so much power over us. Being in this state is what makes babies so vulnerable to injury. Being in this state is what facilitates healing and allows us to fall in love.
This then is the focus of this site—to teach you to have ahas. Know this is not a commercial site. We just get a kick out of doing this. Of course, for this to work for you, you'll first need to learn to see your own nature. Hence our tendency to talk a lot about things like personality, consciousness, talk therapy, and the mind. As well as the things which prevent consciousness like relationship problems, addictions, and learning disabilities.
Does this all sound too good to be true? Then good for you. If you want to have ahas, you must learn to question more. A lot more. This includes questioning what you read here, especially our new scientific method. In the end though, we believe you'll find we have what it takes to help you to change your life. One aha at a time.
What makes us think science knows more than we do? Just one thing. Statistics and logic are like fast food for the mind—and science offers the kind of fast-food type answers we crave. Sadly even when we know these answers are flawed, we still defer to good old science. We do this because we crave ways to predict suffering—and science claims they can predict it.
Realize I'm no different than you. I too crave these answers. And despite all the criticism I've just leveled at science, I still love science. What I don't love is the emperor's-new-clothes practices people try to pass off as science. Indeed, for years I believed that conventional science could answer most things. Unfortunately when you look closer, most of their searches for answers fail. So despite their claims, science can't explain some of the simplest things, like why breakthroughs occur so infrequently in talk therapy. Or why we fail to retain most of what we're taught. Or why it's so hard to forgive.
They also can't explain why most diets fail. Or why we get addicted to things. Or why relationships, especially romantic ones, are so hard. Most of all though, they can't explain why their method fails more than 99% of the time. Do you know? Would you like to?
Finding scientific answers to questions like these is a big part of what we do here. To do this, we've invented two new maths—Logical Geometry (the math of discovery) and Tipping-Point Math (the math of real world measurement). By combining these maths, we've also discovered a new scientific method. Here discoveries are guaranteed, and results translate to the real world.
Already this method has led to a new personality theory, a new talk therapy based on this theory, and myriad discoveries in and around everything from addictions and the autism spectrum to the nature of sleep, weight loss, learning, and the structure of the mind. And the discoveries keep coming.
Is this your first visit? Know that most people, on their first visit, feel overwhelmed. Too many topics. Too many long articles. And way too much to learn in anything like a single visit. The thing is, if you treat our site like a big-thick-encyclopedia of secrets and mysteries (and if you honor yourself and go only at your heart's own pace), then in time, we're sure you'll see beauty in things you thought had no beauty. Including in the people you currently struggle to like the most.
Know also that we are currently in the process of revising the whole site. Our goal is to present our discoveries in a more accessible form. Eventually we hope to make everything "selectively visual," meaning no more book-length articles. You'll select only the part you are currently reading. The rest will be hidden away.
Finally, for whom have we made this site? Mainly, for the child in all of us. The part of you that so wants answers but has forgotten how to find your own. Thus whether you be therapist, teacher, aspiring healer, or wounded soul—if you are looking for compassion and interesting answers, we've got a lot to share with you.
Our overall hope, of course, is that we'll inspire you to seek your own way to make the world a better place. Especially for children. We'd also like to help you to rediscover the awe and wonder you once felt each and every morning, as you set out to find the most wonderful treasure of all; the the beauty hidden within each and every being in our world.
May these beautiful feelings emerge in you.
P.S. In case you're interested, I've just released the second in a series of books on Finding Personal Truth. These books document discoveries which go far beyond what you'll find on the site. Not only can these discoveries teach you to overcome your fears and believe in yourself. They can also teach you how to make your own discoveries.
P.P.S. And in case you're interested, our sister site, The Fifth Wise Man, is just coming online. Who's the fifth wise man? Why it's you, of course.
