Deep trance identification and the Matrix

By on October 5, 2014

We have frequent movie nights in our NLP and Hypnosis Center here in New York City, where we show movies that have some connection to NLP and hypnosis. One of the movies we show regularly is the Matrix. The idea of being able to ‘download’ skills like flying a helicopter from a computer directly into your brain is a wonderful idea! If only!

Well it turns out that this type of learning may be possible after all. Researchers at Brown University may have unlocked the secret to Matrix style learning, as the article below from Discover magazine explains. In the research Professor Watanabe wired subjects brains up to scanners then challenged to enlarge a shape on a computer screen using their mind, but did not tell them how to do it. The trick was form them to replicate the brain wave pattern associated with an entirely different mental task involving visualizing a certain shape. Professor Watanabe has previously identified these brain waves with separate volunteers.

Once participants were able to perform the first task, even though they did not know how they were doing it, they were asked to do the second task. They found this much easier than control subjects. Essentially the skills for the second task (which they had never practiced or indeed heard about) had been ‘downloaded’ directly to their brain. Pretty cool.

It’s like you’re asked to stare at a computer screen and move an object from one side of the screen to the other, and end up miraculously learning Kung Fu!

Combine this with Deep Trance Identification (DTI) and perhaps we can all become Neo!

Automatic learning, the technical term for this idea, has been a longtime dream of the cyberpunk set…  thanks to recent research by Brown University neuroscientist Takeo Watanabe, what has long been science fiction may soon become science fact. Matrix Learning |
