Iwelcome back to Emo Dojo, it'sSaturday November, twenty. Eighth. How are you it's great to have you here andit's great to be here like just in general feeling better than I didyesterday, so I had a little interaction. My Mom, it turned out called me on thetelepone after I'd gone to bed the other night after I completed thepodcast. I was talking about being all lonely on Thanksgiving and she said she hadn't got my videoand chacked it up to technical difficulty, so that felt better earingfrom her and just pad chatting with her a bit on Messenger and of course I heard from my one of mysons, which is always great because he's the quiet one and when he repliesthat's saying a lot, so I did hear from some people on Thanksgiving and thenyesterday we talked a lot about the lifted, the get liftedcom theneurostimulation device. So today I was yeah to generally feeling better. Until I got, I don't really do facebook so a lot oftimes. People try to contact me through there and it ends up being days orweeks. Until I reply, I got like thirty friends maybe tops- and I saw a messagetoday from one of my really close friends likewhen I was kicked out of my house. There's been like two families thattook me in Ray's family re, Lavou he's my musicdirector he's responsible for the theme music. You hear his family took me inand then, when I wore his mom out, I moved to Sacramentoand was ultimately taken in by a kind family called the grahams. Well,...

...that was so there. Those people arelike brothers and sisters to meet the Grahams and in fact my buddy Steve. He met his wife and I think they weremarried at like seventeen. Seventeen, eighteen and they're still marriedtoday. So That's how long I've known them since they were dating like weused to go visit, let's call her D, so wed go down andvisit de in this tiny little town called Galt. We drive all the way from Sacramentodown to Golt, and I can't remember how my my buddy, my brother, Steve,originally met. Maybe on a school trip- or I don't know a football game somehow,because back in the day, unless you knew somebody in that town, there wasreally no way to meet another person. That was definitely no internet, noemail, no social media for sure. So it was sayinga lot for them to have found each other and tohave stuck together this longanyway. She posted this morning that she was in the hospital and that thewhole family had caught covid and she was on oxygen. So I was really upset by that, as you tend to be rightand, of course, she's like the angel that we all knew she's like most, likemy sister of anybody I know like when I would fall out and just be near homeless. Shewould take me in she wouldn't have to convince Steve to, but she would be theone to volunteer to like Steve was my Mike of my brother, and we never had to.He didn't have to convince us to accept d into the group of guys she was one ofus. So if ever one of us was out out down and out de was there to say, heycome on, we got space we'll help you out all that, so it seems especiallyunjust that she would get sick enough to need oxygen in a hospital anyway,wherever you are on this planet, if you could steer some of your positive vibestoward the Sacramento California area,...

...whenever you get a chance and thinkabout just think D in your head, all right, thank you, and sometimes you get in that space.Where you don't talk to your friends or family for months or years right. Justthe way life happens, especially when you have a mental illness. You tend tocrawl into your own world and stay there, so you don't spread your toxicenergy to other people, so I was like Jeesi. I want to hearfrom these people. I want to talk to my friends again anyway. I had planned to make Chili today and so I'm like well fucking, I'm goingto hook up the facebook live, put the camera on to stand and just go chop the vegetables to make the Chilli.So I started to make the Chili and guess who pops up watching my livestream of chopping, vegetables and peppers, it's D, so it kind of warmed,my heart quite a bit and then my brother Steve popped into so theyapparrently communicating through messenger or whatnot one sick in bed,one sick in the hospital. So I wish you guys the best of luck. Idon't think you've listened to this podcast, but I'm trying to spread goodvibes, good energy to you and, I hope, you're better quickly. So it was anywaybetween me and you. I thought it was awesome kind ofsynchroniscity that they would just pop up probably boared in bed honestly,because there they're, otherwise healthy, and I think the oxygen issupplemental, not healthy, healthy, their healthyhumans. Generally speaking, aside from the COVID that they're sufferingthrough, so I think they're like sick people in bed, the traditional sickperson in bed- and I thought it was cool that they were able to watch me mix some chilli. And you know the little things mean a lotboth to me and maybe to them. So my point being hey. If you're thinking ofjust doing something random, putting...

...together some Lego, making Chiliplaying with the puzzle or doing a board game, maybe stick a camera onthat and show it to your social streams. Maybe some old friends might pop in andsay hi. So tomorrow, I'm going to interview a cancersurvivor and that won't be part of this actualsjho feed I'll put that on a different show, feed I'm working on collectinginterviews for that's going to be interesting, but the developer of the liftedneurostimulation device. He emailed me back his name's can by the way, but I'mgoing to make some time for Kan and see. What's up, I have questions about hisdevice and he probably just wants to have you know a conversation about howI want to use it or whatever y now, just I'm curious and he's probablyequally curious. I was doing my due diligence because invariably after wetalk, there's no reason why he should notcome on this show, like I'm sure you guys want to hear from them, especiallyby the time I finished wearing it for several days, see if it's helpful atall for depression or Adhd, so we'll see anyway. If he comes on, I wasthinking O jeeze. I got to like actually look into this whole thing andthe best way to do that is just typing the thing you're talking about an hen,the word scam, so I went and looked up. Neuro stimulation scam, no, its not aSCAMIDAL, apparently there's one device on scam,detector or scam report, and it looks like it's just a shady company making acrappy version of a device. I mean don't order a device from thefucking website that has no address or no phone number and stick itselectrodes on your head. Will Du anybody can make alectors? You can gohook, car batteries, your EADS? Don't do that! Don't buy a junky thing from acompany, that's not known yeah, because there are scambycompanies for sure. But, generally speaking, narrow stimulation, not ascam. I couldn't find anything on the...

Internet. That said anything about itbeing a scam at all, which is cool plenty of places, in myestimation, are just marketing them poorly they're, using words that they they can't back up. That's never a goodthing. I think a lot of them are fearful ofgoing straight through the mental health market because it seems solimiting, because a lot of people with mental health problems don't speak upabout them and the general stigma against mentleillnesses, but I did find some research. I definitely want to talk to Kan aboutmostly revolves around the locations being stimulated. One concern I readabout in the in scientific paper that made sense to me was what happens if you reverse the Poles?What happens so, for example, say you have a symmetrical device and thisdevice is fairly symmetrical. You could easily flip it upside down in thebutton would be on the other side if you weren't following directions. Mypoint is, though, what if you did that? Is there any damage? I don't thinkthere's damage. Will it affect your brain differently? Possibly here's theinteresting thing: there is no indication or proof or research howthis kind of neuror stimulation affects, left, handed people differently fromright, handed people and before you go thinking, left brain right, brain hold,it hold it. The most recent research basically says the left brain right,brain creative versus analytical or whatever that's all bullshit, not all bullshit, but at such an oversimplification of the way things work as to be inaccurate. The brain operatesnot in single notes at a time or single hemispheres, there's multiple parts ofthe brain and they talk to each other simultaneously. More, like cords ofmusic, multiple, multiple notes, multiple nodes of youbraine communicatewith each other simultaneously depending on the activity, but there isa difference in the brains between left...

...handed and right handed people. That'snot to say I mean I'm not even sure. I believe in the the redoric that lefthanded people are more creative and right handed people are more analytical.I don't, I don't think that's accurate honestly. I think it's been disprovenby now, but there's clearly a difference, even a physiologicaldifference in left hand in Righthand, for example, I was born left handed inkindergarten and first grade when they taught me to write. They continuallymoved the Pencil back to my right hand at one point: Even rubber, banding thePencil to my right hand, so that I just couldn't move it back over to my lefthand to writ. Even to this day I formed my letters ina strange way, typically from the bottom up with my right hand. Anyway, not a big deal except forsports mechanics, for example. I bat and golf hockey things like that. Standing Right handed, but my swingsucks. I have no natural body mechanical swing in that direction.When I try from the left hand, I feel so awkward, I don't there might be acorrect body, mechanics happening there left handed wise, but I can't find it where I really notice hit, though, isshooting long guns. My eyes do not line up. If I try to aim right handed justdoesn't work, I see two visions if I hold the rifle on my left side up against my left,shoulder everything lines up perfectly. So that tells me there is somethingphysiological, at least with the vision in the vision is closely associatedwith the brain. So I'm still curious about the effects of a neurostimulationdeviced on righthanded versus left handed people because, as a drummer, Iwould really like to continue to bolster my left handedness as a drummer. I've always been kind ofambidextrous like the things I can play...

...right handed. I can play lefthanded. Ican sit down at a right handed kit and play it left handed and siated a lefthanded kit and play it right handed. You get the idea, my four way:Independence Sucks if you're a drummer, you know what I'm talking about, but Ican' do things symmetrically, left and right, which is kind of cool when you puttingon a show anyway. All that aside, I want to enhance the ambedexterousnessand, to the extent that that might be possible with Nero stimulation. I wantto know, for example, the great buddy rich one of the best drummers that hasever lived, never shook people's hands with theright hand, he insisted on shaking with the left. He wanted to build left hand,dominance to outweigh, or at least balance out his natural right handdominance. So, by the same token, I'm reallycurious with neuro stimulation. If we could change the Poles back and forthor if you could just order a left handed or right handed model, that'swhat I'm getting at that seems like it might be beyond what we're able to do, but Ithink it might be a good step in the right direction. The one thing I wantedto bring up, especially about neuro stimulation and the parts of it, yourbrain it stimulates about like cannabits and also pharmaceuticaldrugs, since each of our brains are so vastly different. I think the HolyGrail for all of these treatments to what ails us is customization and frankly, I thinkwe'll get there in ten years on all of these things, on cannabis, on electricstimulation, nearo stimulation and on pharmaceuticals. The thing is right: Now: None of themare customize enough to truly help people enough for everyone to say Whoa, that'sthe thing so clearly: overnumbing yourself with pharmaceuticals orCanabis or Zapping your brain, maybe not enough,because you know there's a level of safety and unless it's customized, youkind of have to turn that level down to...

...the lowest commet denominator. Sonobody will get hurt, but I think some people with thicker skulls, literallythicker skulls, might need more different. Brain parts might needdeeper stimulation and different voltages, and things like that. Sountil we can start customizing these devices or the nature of cannabis, Iknow about Canabas, because I work in a Canibas processing lab and the newestmarketing craze. Ind Cannabis is instead of calling it out by INDACA OR SATIVATHEY'RE, starting to call it out by what they think it makes you feel likerelax, focused calm that sort of thing the problem. There is again it's kindof bullshit marketing, because until these drugs are finely tuned andcustomize per the individual there's no way those terms are going to beaccurate, so similar to the drugs that thepharmacies give you every day. You know they're not helping all that you need,but in the future they might and in the future neuro stimulation will do thesame thing. So it really comes back down to like who owns electricity,electricity's cheap, you could you could get a nearor stimulation deviceand live off the grid. andpower the thing with solar energy and clear yourmind completely. This is these are the things I think about, especially ifyour device say five. Six seven years from now has been custom tuned to yourbrain and can be software updated based on its feedback, every three or fourmonths, checks in on your brain sees what you need. People think this isscary and that's because we live in kind of the Beta technology times rightnow. I definitely have faith in technology, but I definitely believe welive in the shittiest era of technology. Ever we are completely abato society.We're being tested on day and day out things don't work things break thingsare complicated. It's all e bunch of...

...bullshit in the future. This will allbe flawless and technology will have proven to be a huge benefit to society,especially with regards to health, so we're basically waiting for governmentapproval of these devices in the medical field and for science toadvance. To the point where we have nanotechnology, that the canpin pointdifferent areas to research and what things we can apply to those areas ofthe brain, especially with regards to mental health. Longevity dimensionproblems, things like epilepsy, caezor disorders,brain injury, trauma, anxiety, depression, the whole thing there willbe ceares for all this by wo thousand an forty. We just need to hang in thereand test the things like help out the companies that are at least try. So Ilook forward t talking with Ken ad lifted, and I want to go put my deviceon right now and go watch a Tom Hanks World War, two movie, so ye sounds likea nice evening right. My Chile's done. Cooking Miy be have a bowl of Chilli, abowl of Cilly and again I send out my love to the grahms of Sacramento get well soon an look forward to seeingyou in person in two thousand and twenty one chawl and now back to the wall.
