Now we are ready for point #3:  how, surprisingly and simply, to turn on any undeveloped sector of skills, awarenesses and/or intelligence...

3. We are marginally or slightly consciously aware of many things, for each item of awareness we actually pay attention to, respond to, become more fully conscious of. We have hundreds of these "sidebands of awareness" for each item that we are fully conscious of.

These phenomena are also described and worked with in the e-published quickbook, You Are Brighter Than You Think, freely available on this website.

So, simply,

Find a way to focus upon, or even elicit, those among your 1001 sidebands of awareness which relate to the sector you wish to develop.

As you get one of these initially subtle or undeveloped awarenesses into the margins of your consciousness, respond to it in order to reinforce it. (For most purposes, to describe that awareness out loud, to a listener, in as close and concrete detail as you can, is usually your best and most convenient method of reinforcement.)

By doing these,
You reinforce that particular awareness more fully into your conscious focus, discovering more and more and more about it.

You reinforce the behavior of being aware and perceptive in that area of ability.

You reinforce, more and more onto line with immediate verbally focussed consciousness, those parts of the brain associated with handling of those previously offline awarenesses.


Sound familiar?
It's the same simple formula as for Image-Streaming, shown to rapidly increase not only "I.Q." but a whole host of intelligence-related capabilities and experience. Or for what's been reported as the European method for training an ordinary person into a sophisticated, sensitive wine-taster or perfume tester:
Present that person with a sample of that wine or perfume;

The instant he samples it, he is to rapid-fire describe, in detail, everything that comes to mind, whether or not it seems relevant. And to continue doing so, rapid-fire, for some minutes.

Present him with the next sample.....

Three days of this intense sensitization, and ordinary people reportedly become highly sensitive, sophisticated tasters, testers or whatever.

The same clearly should apply to developing skills of interior design in terms of decor and taste; the apparent fact that most highly involved published writers of music criticism or art criticism, even if their reviews are wrong, tend to be—or become—highly intelligent. Any skilled field involving the reading of subtle behavioral cues....

[Yeah--how do all those supposedly ignorant charlatans develop such sophisticated skills as to give nearly all their customers apparently effective readings? Either you have the human mind working at its finest there, generating a maximum of effective information from minimal cues, or you may have to credit something going on beyond the merely sensory. Some sort of sophisticated high-order function is going on there—and in whatever case, this brief shows you how to recreate it if you like.]

There are a million-and-one possible ways to implement what this brief has given you—a simple, direct way to turn on major sectors of your underused, underdeveloped intelligence, ability and awareness.


—To do what?
For this next point I'm indebted to a close and good friend and colleague, Matthew Turco.

While this brief shows you a direct, simple way to heighten your intelligence generally, you might do best to pick something specific that you are unable to do now, that you can do once your intelligence is higher. Most of us don't have ready access to qualified IQ tests, and even the "good" ones, which you don't find on the Net, don't give us that immediate a feedback and reinforcement.

Specific targets may be easier to focus on and elicit relevant marginal awarenesses with, than are the more abstract definitions of "intelligence" or the cardinal rule of game theory. Also, probably the more concrete, the more motivating. And once you find yourself able to do that specific thing you hitherto could not, that's a lot more confirming and reinforcing, should you then decide to go on with your further development.

So we think that, besides this basic simple principle of eliciting/focussing relevant marginal awarenesses and reinforcing these brain functions into full verbal consciousness, it will help you to aim at some specific ability (as part of that general "intelligence").

Simple Image-Streaming and its closest related Einstein-type discovery practices seem, as of this writing, to be the form most usefully related to general intelligence turn-on. Just 25 hours' easy, entertaining practice of Image-Streaming appears, in some preliminary university studies measuring the effects of that procedure, to yield dramatic I.Q. gains (and larger gains in other, related qualities). However, those studies were interrupted before their completion could bring the statistical data up to full scientific standards. Those indicated measured gains match anecdotal data and incidental observation, but cannot yet be declared on a scientific basis. Further studies are being sought.

Some Image-Streaming can also serve as a good part of your way of turning on almost any specific part of your underdeveloped or undeveloped awarenesses and abilities

As part of your mix of 1001 easily used ways to focus on your related marginal awarenesses and reinforce them by describing them or otherwise responding to them

Reinforcing that sector of your awareness, ability, brain-function and intelligence into fully conscious focus.
It's that direct and that simple.
