Why Doesn't Science Study, "Ahas?"
Have you been trying to change yourself? As I'm sure you know, it's hard to do. In truth, most people's efforts to change eventually fail, no matter how much effort they make. The good news? There is one way of changing which never fails, the events we refer to as "ahas." Moreover, since these events alter your very nature, these changes last for life.
Permanent changes? Imagine? Teaching you how make these changes is the entire purpose of this site. Know that in order for you to be able to do this, you'll first need to learn to see your own nature. This is why we tend to talk so much about things like personality, consciousness, talk therapy, and the mind. As well as the things which prevent us from being conscious—like relationship problems, addictions, and learning disabilities.
Does this sound like bullshit to you? Then good for you. Skeptics are the best students. Indeed, if you want to have ahas, you must learn to ask more questions. A lot more. This includes questioning what you read here, especially our new scientific method. In the end though, we believe you'll fall in love with changing 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 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 third 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 now online. Who's the "fifth wise man"?
Why it's you, of course.
