Science moves faster/ Than doctors care to embrace/ Because drugs pay bills

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

I talk more about the LiftID tDCS (Transcranial Direct-Current Stimulation) device, and how I feel the developers got framed negatively on Shark Tank (Season 12, Ep. 5) 

Haiku Show Notes:

And what's up it's johnny motions onFriday, it's November twenty? Seventh, almost the end of the month, another daily emotions for you herefrom the EMO. Do Joe Yeah, I'm going to start a CANNABA'slounge where we don't actually sell cannabis. You can just join it like a monthly feelike a gym and you can just go there, hang out andconsume your canabus without being harassed and told them move along begclimate controlled. You know, entertainment options inside. Of course,all this happens after Covid, but yeah, that's that's! The EMODOJO is going tobe a CANNAPUS LOUNGE DIG IT so I've been dutifully using the lifted.transcranial direct stimulation device.

Wait my doing it right! transcranialdirect current stimulation t DC S. it's always hard for me to mixthose words up because there's a hyphin in there somewhere and is it the hyphenbetween the Trians and the CRANAL? Is it t hyphen CD wyeah anyway t DCS? Ijust remember because DC like the comics and there's a little tiny tea inthe front of it. Anyway, that's what I'm working on andusing it regularly. Now it's pretty cool. I would describe the like it's it's fashionable, but it'snot something you would wear in public. It is something I would wear, maybeduring a commute but you're not supposed to wear it. While you drive acar so now, maybe if I carpooled with somebody, Iwould definitely put on the lifted every morning in the back seat. I don'tcare what my friends are regular acquaintances, it's that it's that kindof aesthetic. You know if people know...

...you and you know you're into kind ofinteresting things, and you have a moment to explain what the hell it isthen sure, if you're around those regular people, the lifted neuro stimulation device is fine. It'snot so obtrusive to where you couldn't wear it like around the office orwhatever, like sure people are think Yiu' weird, but they probably thinkyou're weird anyway. So I guess my thought on that was like if it's going,if I'm just going to wear it around people, that I'm comfortable withpeople that I see regularly and that I I can explain what the fuck it is, then it could actually be a littleweirder looking and the reason I bring this up is because I'm thinking, ifit's doing whatever it's doing, if it's stimulating the parts of my front oflobe up there, well, what other effects could we achieve ifwe had little stimulators on different parts of yourscalp that were aimed at different parts of your brain? So I'm fascinatedby that. I think that would be cool and...

...not so goofy to where you couldn't wearit in the same circumstances that you would wear this now, I'm not talkingmake it like a gigantic Dorky bike, helmet looking thing or anything likethat, I'm just saying: There's a little bit of room, probably for some otherstimulators. I don't know what stimulating other parts of the brainwould do, but I'm always up for an adventure. So I got a really cool emailfrom the developers, the inventors. Let'ssay of the product, and he said he said he and his wife had listened to thepodcast, the other night, where I was talking about the device and he thankedme for for sharing. So I appreciate that that they are listening so shoutout to the the developers, the inventors, I don't want to name checkthem, because they, you know you can find out who they are anyway. But Oh infact, they're on Sharktank, because I went back and looked. I looked at theirnames in the email and then I went back...

...to short tankets on Hulu. So if youhave Holo, you can go check this out for yourself and yeah. It's the samepeople so cool it's kind of weird, like kind of Meta, but you see somethingthat you're interested in on one screen, you type into keyboard on a different screen and thenthe thing you saw on the first screen appears in your mail box and you put iton your head and then you can talk about it and then the people on thefirst screen can hear you talk about it through a different device. On asmaller screen, so it's all very yeah conceptual this. Quite the constructwe've built here as humans, but I wanted to go back to sharktank and kindof see like what really happened there and I've kind of discerned. Whathappened here so there's a couple things when well for one when you go onshark tank you're, not just there for the twenty minutes, you're there forhours and there's a whole bunch of people, it's kind of like star Serch,there's people literally outside giving pitches to the producers like hey. CanI try mine? Can I try my it's a shit...

...show so the idea that they got into theshark tank to begin with is amazing, but it also reminds me of star searchwhere the producers kind of pick people they think might be wacky based onpersonality and or the device or combination of the two just for a goodshow, and now in hindsight I get a sense that they may have been set up alittle bit in that sense, which sucks and here's why the okay so Le me backup one step real quick. So you know when, especially if you're taking medication for Anto kind of mentalillness you're supposed to also do therapy medication alone won't workbecause stimulating your brain from outside sources like medicine are great,but while your neurons are in that active state, you're supposed to beretraining it with better material, if you're reliving all the past oldstories of your trauma and your anxieties and everything you're goingto keep bringing those up, if you just...

...take the meds and you don't get therapy,so it's a pretty simple concept of when the neurons are active and and flyingaround in there in the kind of fluffy sparkles. You want to reorganize themin a better way, and I think that's what they were talking about, and I actually I' like to know moreabout the science of this. So when the developer were talking to the sharksabout this lifted device, the moment the guy was about to explain to Lourihow it worked, and it was about to talk about how, while the neurons areexcited, you should be doing something else. In other words, this isn't adevice you put on your head and meditate and silence. This is a deviceyou put on your head, like I could be doing my podcast right now with it onor game. I play call of duty. The otherday. Do some computer work. I watch documentaries about Arcane, subjectmatter and things like that, so yeah Hou just good about your daily businessand try to feed your brain with more...

...positive or interesting things. To myestimation, that's what you should do. So that's what I'm doing, but themoment the developer was trying to explain this to Lory Mark Cuban jumpsin there and interrupts it just starts reading the fugging warning label offthe box. Well, of course, there's a warning label. It's supposed to bethere so reading the warning label off the box is like. Are you trying tosnitch on somebody because you're reading what they're telling us soanyway, the warning label wasn't the issue. The issue to me was that Marksaid well if this doesn't have any medical efficacy than what's the point,that's kind of shameful in my mind because here's the point this is ascientific device. It's not a medical device. The medical establishment isgenerations like human generations fort fifty sixty eighty years behind science.There is proven science for lots of things in. In fact, the science ofneurostimulation is proven,...

...and it's been also tested by medicaldoctors and Yeuro surgeons and and the whole range of people that areinterested in brains have tested the science of neurostimulation. However,that doesn't make it a medical device, because the medical establishmenthasn't seen fit. They haven't created enough intention or desire or profitmotive or whatever, to look into this because, frankly, neurostimulation is acheap way to fix things. If it really works right now, hypotheticallyspeaking again, there's no medical claims on the device, and I'm certainlyno doctor, but imagine it if a device that costs a hundred and fiftydollarsactually worked, and you didn't need your prescriptions that cost a hundredand fiftyars a week, because you're now using the device that cost a hundredand fiftydars once so. I'm not I'm a fan of conspiracies, but I seeconspiracies for what they are, but in this case there there's in a sense ofconspiracy of silence, or I mean here's...

...another example I'm into cannabis. Theyalso use cadamine for depression. Now, they're working on Silicibon, you knowmagic musrooms, so the medical establishment doesn't research, Canadi,cadamine or Silisibon. That doesn't mean they don't work. It means themedical establishment is slow and motive motivated by something otherthan human kindness and trying to cure illness. Like probably money. You know that said,I don't have a problem with th, including neuro stimulation in therealm of reality of things that actually do work. But what part they'reworking on remains to be seen right, like an like. I said I really do wantto know about that. The regenerating new thoughts like thewhole idea of doing medicine with therapy or doing neara stimulation,with whatever, like perhaps Nero stimulation with therapy, would beawesome. I would love to dry that, in...

...fact I will I don't have a therapist.Currently I mean the gap between insurances. I don't have insurance, soI would like to get some tella health going or something like that evenappeare to peer zoom call, maybe with the depression group or something whereI can share and hear others feedback, while I'm wearing the neuro stimulationdevice, I'm a goofball. I would definitely do that, like it's, not soweird looking where it would look out of place on a zoom call. I've seen alot of weird things on Azoom call and lifted near our stimulation device.Would not look that strange, and so anyway, on unshark tank, theynever got to explain fully how it worked because mark interrupted afterLaurie asked the question and once mark interrupted the the inventors kind oflike me, it's like well and again back to the other point. They weren't there.Just twenty minutes this is after hours and then they caught all the video ofthe inventor looking flustered like I...

...would be, and then then Robert got intoit with him a little bit on the show and then Kevin said hes about to godown as like one of the crank demonstrations in Sharktank history,which I totally disagree with, I don't yeah yeah was it didn't seem that bad Imean if they edited that Shark tank to make them look as crazy as possible andthat's the worst they made hem. It's not that bad at all. The sad thing is, though, they're justshitting on technology, scientific technology, again not medicaltechnology, but the shitting on proven scientific technology that canstimulatethe brain and proven research. That shows that this can help depress ion.So you got the sharks basically shitting on it. Let me say that more correctly, so the transcription gets that right. Sharktank is shitting on scientifically proven technology, because theyrebeholding to the pharmaceutical...

...industry question mark I'm just playing. I have no idea, but it makes you wonder like why be sodismissive so quickly and try to frame the guy as a cook. I don't know, gocheck it out so anyway, Hulu season, twelve episode, five and if you want tocheck it out for yourself, go to get lifted, com get get and lifted as Li ft ID liftID like your is get it that all right, so cool yeah, like I said it's Friday, I'll beback here tomorrow. Saturday like daily means daily right now, so until Ifigure out something else to do, it's going to be daily. Have a great nighttalk to you tomorrow...

...and now back to the wall.
