The BOOK of WANDS

 

Greetings Travelers and Brain Explorers!

I have received a couple of
interesting letters that I wanted to share in regards to my latest work,
The Book of Wands

Contrary to what many might think- the
title is in some way very deceptive. This book is a BRAIN BOOK and not a fantasy
for kids or nerds. None the less, the subject title "WANDS" is something that is
particularly spot in in the case of this project, and I think it will eventually
prove extremely unique and valuable.

Dear Neil,
I am
definitely not your target audience. Without getting into specific details of
why, you may assume I’m correct in my self-evaluation. Regardless, I’ve found
your Book of Wands to be entertaining and engaging and I appreciate the ongoing
effort.


Would I have every picked up this book at the store?

"Absolutely not" is the only answer to my own question.

However, am
I glad that I stumbled upon (good radar?) your book and plowed through the first
several hundred pages on my iPhone? I happy to say that I can give an
unqualified "yes".


Good luck and thank you. I look forward to finishing
the last few hundred pages.

MY RESPONSE:

Dear
JM


This is a great letter for me to have- thanks very much.

It has
always been my goal to write a book that everyone will find not only
entertaining, but useful.


My ‘target audience" in fact is everyone, in
that Book of Wands is not some kids silly idea of waving around sticks in a
pretend fantasy,

but rather that my book is about real life, and the real
application of one’s mind and energy.


Are "Wands" real? Absolutely. We
have at our disposal tools that absolute transform our life, and move us from
one reality to another.

It is just a matter of how you look at the very
things that our at your fingertips. We can look at such tools in a silly way, or
we can

see the real trans formative power that resides in our capacity to use
Tools in a creative and powerful manner.


I am glad to hear especially
that it has engaged someone who would in particular think that the book is not
for him.


I will pass this on to my European publishers.

Thanks
very much-

Neil

Here are two VERY
interesting letters I received as well


Hi Neil,
Thanks so much for
this book. It has been a total BLAST reading it. I keep checking my email for
the rest of the book…and yes I have read all 667 pages that you have sent and
parts of it more than once.J And now that I have maybe 40% of the housework done
that I have neglected in favor of reading your book, I am ready for
more!!!


Remember I told you my very soon to be 12 year old reminded me of
Bobby Spaghetti? …well, a couple of days ago I took him shopping and just as we
parked and took our seatbelts off he says to me…hey mom…and then proceeds to
stick his finger up his nose and make all sorts of weird faces and funny noises
and strange gyrations. I laughed so hard! It just reminded me of Bobby Spaghetti
so much.


Then when I come home and am reading more in your
book…something draws my eyes down and there is a pair of old glasses on the
floor…..could mean nothing, heck I brought these old glasses in a long time ago
and didn’t even know they were missing but I found it interesting that my eyes
were drawn to them like that.


My husband and I have been looking for a
cheap coffee table to redo as a Christmas present (he does beautiful work) and
made plans to drive around and check to see if there were any garage
sales.


Around 9 I told him he should go and that he would find it and be
right back. He said ok he was going to focus in and he’d be back in soon….and
within 30 minutes he was back with a beautiful weathered and painted over in
black sitting outside FREE coffee table and he has stripped it revealing its
rightful wooded face J


Did you know the word WAND backwards has DNA Woven
into it? Lol…’


I had tons of energy this morning..clicked forward and my
own Noodle boy and I proceeded to clean his room and closet …scary job..and
found a key chain harmonica and he said Mom you can have that…and it plays real
pretty and is a good wand to have in my pocket. Took a big container of his old
homework and sorting through it, pulling out his stories and drawings and out
pops….a copy of page 84,85 and 86 titled Brain Games #15, Mind Movie
Re-Right…..don’t know why they were there but I can take a hint
;


I’ve read your stuff, fiddled around with a feather but really ..was
only dusting…until NOW….Thanks!


Cheryl

THEN I RECEIVED THIS
FOLLOW UP- pretty amazing…

In the book I relate the "SOUND" of
"Traveling"–


Neil,

Ok, two days ago..that would be Sunday….I
was in the kitchen making some morning juice for my guys. I have a manual crank
juicer and as I was juicing it felt a little wobbly so I loosened it,
repositioned it and then tightened it as tight as I physically could. I made the
juice, and then went to the sink to rinse something and suddenly both my son and
I heard this whoosh and then boom! I turn quickly and look and there is the
juicer in the middle of the floor! It just flew right off!


Then last
night, my husband and I were sitting in the living room playing a board game
when suddenly directly left of my head goes this loud sound…BOIIIING! I kid you
not! I looked at my husband and ask him if he heard it and he said he had. "What
was that sound?" I ask. After a short discussion on it I excitedly tell him…for
the first time!…about The Book of Wands..and how all these things I’ve been
experiencing are in the book….


Hearing that BOING! Well..that was
wild!

I could type more…but I’m not going to….I’m going to go read
J

Here’s the original web site all about
CLOUDBURSTING CLOUBUSTING CLOUD BURSTING whatever you call it

Cloudbursting is the phenomenon done by George Clooney in the new movie Men Who Stare At Goats–

But
the first person to make CLOUDBURSTING CLOUBUSTING CLOUD BURSTING
whatever you call it was your’s truly in a 1997 national demonstration
TWELVE YEARS AGO on Art Bell’s coast to coast
where Neil Slade did cloudbursting and then taught the audience how to make it rain by focusing
their own Brain Focus Energy on the N.E. Corner of Florida during a drought.

The
CLOUDBURSTING CLOUBUSTING CLOUD BURSTING or whatever resulted in a real
cloudburst that resulted in 10 inches of cloud bursting rain and helped
douse the fires in that region- after NO RAIN WAS PREDICTed.

The cloudbursting demonstration was recorded by satellite and you can read and see all the results here
http://www.neilslade.com/cloudbursting.html or alternatively
http://www.neilslade.com/cloudbursting.html

If you are interested in cloudbursting just go to the sites above, or more importantly to
http://www.neilslade.com and learn what else your wonderful cloudbursting brain can do.

Then check out The Book Of Wands to see what other magic is in there besides cloudbursting.

    Dr. Sam Wang Creates NEW BRAIN MYTHS
    Two Brain EXPERTS tell you what is watt in their new book
"Facts, myths and useful tips about your brain- Welcome To Your Brain"

    from "brain authorities"
    Sandra Aamode and Sam Wang (Ph.D)

 An alternative look by Brain Writer and Teacher, Neil Slade.

In their blog and press releases, they boldly assert (such as in the Publisher’s Weekly Review): "…Neuroscientists Aamodt, editor-in-chief of Nature Neuroscience, and Wang, of Princeton University….tackle such potentially controversial topics as whether men and women have different brains…and whether intelligence is shaped more by genes or environment….Distinguishing their book are sidebars that explode myths—no, we do not use only 10% of our brain’s potential but nearly all of it…"

This myth busting claim to fame is again touted in a recent radio appearance:
"Neuroscientist Dr. Sam Wang discussed the human brain and how it’s wired to experience various phenomena. Made of 3 lbs. of tissue with 100 billion neurons, the brain acts as an information processing device and filter. The truth is, we use all parts of our brain, not just 10% of it (a myth propagated by Dale Carnegie), he noted. " Turns out, if you actually work Dr. Wang’s claim– you discover that Dale Carnegie was actually much closer to the real truth.

Mr. Wang states makes many incorrect assumptions, such as "our brain always runs on 12 watts" as proof of 100% use of one’s neural capacity. This is no more true than saying every 12 watt appliance does equal work, or that every 12 watt appliance works at 100% efficiency– absolute rubbish.

In fact, you can have a 12 watt appliance that draws current, broken or not, and that does absolute ZERO amount of work, and merely overheats and sits there useless.

I am sure many of us have several of these examples in our homes right now, or perhaps on top of someone’s shoulder’s that we know.
Apparently, Mr. Wang flunked 11th grade Electronics class.

If we use 100% of our brain– does this imply that we use all of our neural connections all of the time, simultaneously? That’s what 100% would require.

If so, one would never seen brain activity variation seen clearly in PET and functional MRI– you can’t have fluctuation in activity and state "100% use all the time"– at the same time. Pick one– real science, or meaningless generalization.

Do you use 100% of your car? Always drive at 120MPH with a fully packed trunk and full tank of gas and six passengers?
100% of your muscles? Always running at full speed carrying 100 pounds of weight around your neck?

Such statements miss the point of brain function and potential completely, and mislead people about what the brain actually does.

"It is a myth that we only use 10% of our human brain."

It is common to hear this statement, alarmingly even from a few people who label themselves as "scientific" or as researchers.

In actuality, such a comment as above, is more misleading itself than the so-called myth of unused brain potential.

Think.

You no more use 90% of your brain potential than you use 90% of your muscle potential all of the time.

To say that we use all of our brain, would be like saying Arnold Schwarzenegger or Lou Firigno had as 90 pound teenagers reached the pinnacle of their muscular development.

You no more use all of your brain all of the time than you use 100% of your lung capacity sitting at your computer keyboard.

You no more use all of your brain all of the time than you use all of your car all of the time; that you always drive at the full potential of your Honda; that you always drive at the top speed of your car; that your trunk and seats are always filled to capacity; that you have even figured out and daily employ every single way in which you could use your car.

To say that we use all of our brain ignores the fact that you keep losing your car keys all the time.

To say that we use all of our brain ignores the fact that you couldn’t remember where you left your car in the parking garage- even though this is well within your brain potential.

Sir John Eccles has stated his feelings on the infinite potential of the human brain, and he won the Noble prize.

Such a statement that "We use all of our brain all of the time" or "It is a myth that we only use 10% of our brain" are both misleading and unhelpful uninspiring skeptical crumbs with barely a grain of truth- As well as not even being accurate statements regarding usage of the human brain.

Humans have an unlimited capacity to learn. Unlike computers, no human brain has ever said: "Hard drive full."

A simple look at brain scans will show us that the brain modulates dramatically from one moment to the next in regards to its activity and usage. Here it is then, on the screen of Functional MRI machines and Pet scans, incontrovertible evidence that we do not use all of our brain all of the time.

To say "We use all of our brain all of the time" says nothing about the potential of human intelligence, creativity, and problem solving. Such a skeptical rebuttal of the vast potential of the human think machine implies that we have reached our limits of brain potential- probably the most harmful dead end notion of all. We haven’t even gotten close.

Our frontal lobes have been culturally and socially lobotomized. At this stage of evolution, we are simply still Apes With Pencils.

That’s actually very good news.

Why do some such "experts" delight it saying "It is a MYTH that we only use 10% of our brain." ?

It’s the old, "I know more than YOU Game. It’s an ego thing. It’s a reptile brain on-upmanship thing. It’s the old "You are stupid and I am smart by comparison thing." Skeptics LOVE telling people they are wrong. It makes them feel superior. It is a sin of omission, as as often as not, such people making this contrary statement do not really let us know the whole story.

"It is a myth that you only use 10% of your brain" is no more helpful and informative than saying, "The moon is not made of green cheese". It tells us very little, indeed.

So, as it turns out, to say that "We only use 10% of our brain, only 10% of our brain potential"- this is actually an infinitely optimistic, as well as a considerably reasonable and thoughtful perspective of the possibilities that reside inside our craniums.

It is a helpful generalization and observation by and for the lay person, and although not literally precise, it reflects upon the reality that owners of a human think box have an enormous mental potential from which to draw, from which we as individuals and as a human culture, often as not, ignore.

******************

    Research Report
    Dormancy of the Human Brain
    Dormant Brain Research and Development Laboratory
    T.D.A. Lingo, Director

The human brain is only 10% functional, at best.
The first to outline this theory, later proved a fact by others, was Australian Neurology Nobel Laureate Sir John Eccles. (Lecture: University of Colorado, University Memorial Center Boulder, July 31, 1974.) "The brain indicates its powers are endless."

In England, John Lorber did autopsies on hydrocephalics. This illness causes all but the 1/6th inch layer of brain tissue to be dissolved by acidic spinal fluid. He tested the IQ’s of patients before and during the disease. His findings showed that IQ remained constant up to death. Although over 90% of brain tissue was destroyed by the disease, it had no impact on what we consider to be normal intelligence.

Russian neurosurgeon Alexandre Luria proved that the 1/3 bulk of frontal lobes are mostly dormant. He did this by performing ablation experiments on persons. He gave physiological and psychological tests before, cut out parts and whole frontal lobes, the re-tested after. His conclusion: removal of part or all of frontal lobes causes no major change in brain function, (some change in mood alteration). The frontal lobes are mostly dormant, asleep. (Luria, A.R. "Frontal Lobes and the Regulation of Behavior." In: K.H. Pribram and A.R. Luria, Editors, Psychophysiology of the Frontal Lobes. New York, and London, Academic Press, 1973)

Finally, the human brain contains 10 billion neurons, mostly in the outer layer of brain cortex. the function of these currently dominant cells is fairly clear. but the brain also contains 120 billion glial cells. Aside from some secondary nurturing of neurons, the primary function of the glia is not clear. What big bang miracle awaits mankind within these mysteries?

Today, most would agree without argument that the potential of the human brain is infinite. Thus, to state that a person uses 10%, 5%, or even 1% of their potential brain capacity (infinity) is overly generous.

The point is this: There is no dispute among honestly rational experts about the latent potential of the human think box. There is only friendly dispute about how much and what still awaits us, patiently to be self-discovered between each set of ears. Hence, the wisdom of intuitive folksay was correct: "The human brain is only 10% functional." John Eccles thinks that number is too high. "How can you calculate a percentage of infinity?"

******************************************

Here’s another useful analogy-

The amount of current one’s brain draws is in no way indicative of the quality nor quantity of work it is doing… It only demonstrates that SOMETHING is happening.

So watt. 🙂

You have a computer. You plug it in and it draws current that runs the processor. You run various programs, and you note the CPU usage– 5%, 10%, 20%. Try it– on a PC it’s easy, hold down control, alt, and delete and it brings up the Task Manager and tells you the CPU Usage.

You can run any number of programs well, and use a fraction of the available CPU power.

Now, install your favorite (haha)  VIRUS program that hijacks your system.

It may very well lock up your CPU at 50%,75% or more– and NONE of your programs work. In fact, you can’t do anything on your computer, and you may not even be able to boot it up.

Yet, it’s drawing even MORE power and wattage from your power supply.

Power draw is irrelevant to the idea that "we are using 100% of our brain". It’s meaningless.

Similarly, you may have two electric cars–
Both draw 5000 watts, both have the same motor, both have fully charged batteries, and are switched on at the same time.

One motor is mounted on a car with four properly inflated tires, and it goes 200 miles on a single charge.

The other motor is mounted on a car with four flat tires– and the motor isn’t even connected to the transmission. In fact, the hood of the car has been left open, and the bearings have been exposed to the weather, and the armature is rusted. The motor squeals, and drains the battery exactly the same as in the properly maintained vehicle above. This car uses the same amount of electricity, yet goes ZERO miles on a single full charge.

The notion that current draw somehow reflects total and normal brain function, much less fulfilling brain potential– is dangerously misleading.

What is more important, and probably more relevant, is why someone would try so hard to disprove a sensible notion such as "we don’t approach our full brain potential, we only use 10% of our brain"— a clearly useful METAPHOR, as well as a reasonable reflection of our cultural lack of imagination, rational intellect, and, need to conform to conventional wisdom and dependence on old ideas.

I.e.– we really don’t use our brains as they could be used, but rather vegetate and blindly watch TV and follow charismatic authority figures and swallow ideas whole without really chewing them up, digesting them, or alternatively spitting out those that are indigestible in the first place.

What is at the root of the issue of "how much brain do we use" is not wattage, or that "we use all parts of our brain"– but rather, how are the neurons connected? Why can one person with the same brain volume as another solve a puzzle, while another remains clueless?

Mr. Wang himself tells us that people now do better on IQ tests at the end of the 20th Century than they did at the end of the 19th Century.
The problem with this observation, is that it directly contradicts his statement that we use 100% of our brain–

I don’t think there is any evidence that Joe Smith born in 1980 was born with a bigger brain than Frank Brown born in 1880.

And if they were both using 100% of their brain, how does one explain better brain function in the year 2000?

*******************************

I learned my lesson about not bowing down and falling over and relinquishing my judgment in the presence of "EXPERTS" last year after falling down my basement stairs and rupturing a couple of discs in my spine.

I duly went to my local resident spinal surgeon, complete with 2000 square feet of office space, two million dollars of x-ray equipment, 5 receptionists, and 10 diplomas proudly displayed on his wall. He declared me permanently injured, and requiring of nothing less than removal of portions of my vertebrae to remove a disc, replace it with a titanium spacer, and then fusion of several vertebrae with titanium rods.
He then said I would certainly further need future spinal surgery in a few years.

I then actually used MORE brain power than this expert, and walked out of his office never to return, if more brain power means not spending $50,000 on a very risky and needless surgery.

A year later, without any surgery whatsoever, I am completely healed and have totally normal spinal function and movement.

Beware the experts who "KNOW".

A You-Niverse of Plenty

I just did a $3000+ repair job on my car in January-  for about $300 in parts and paint.

Saved my car. Saved my bank account….  You can do it  – see what I did- Easy Paint Your Own Car

Today’s Cerebral Cermon: A You-Niverse of Plenty

Your brain, and how it works, is going to be more important than ever during these next four years–

It’s
survival of the fittest BRAIN in 2008– as Apes With Pencils have long
ago needed a lot less muscle and a lot more cleverness in order to
survive in the "modern age".

Who knows
what is in store for us between now and 2012– either the end of the
world, the beginning of a new golden age, or more of the same. (How’s
that for covering all bases?)

In the US, the economy looks bleak– so The Law of Attraction will be more important than ever.

Saw
Frank Zappa on an old episode of Saturday Night Live– singing "The
Slime"– a song about TV controlling the population. It’s truer than
ever.

What is MAGNETIZING you? Quality of Life or Quantity of Crap?

If your brain pulls you in the wrong direction– it may be over a cliff with all them other lemmings.

If
you have your Advanced Brain Radar turned on full blast- with your
AMYGDALA clicked forward sending powerful lightning surges of
creativity, intelligence, problem solving, and ESP forward into your
Amazing Frontal Lobes (yeah, Not So Amazing Randy, it DOES exist- do
your homework)– then you’ll magically normally find yourself in the
right place even at the wrong time.

How
do you know if you are using MORE BRAIN POTENTIAL instead of squeaking
by on a single non-rechargeable dying 1.5 Volt AAA Brain Battery?

Easy– monitor your emotional feedback thermometer, located halfway between your ears- inside.

Look
for LONG TERM PLEASURE without hangover. That’s the ticket, that’s the
right vector- That’s the direction for your permanent Natural Powered
Lithium Neural Cell.

Listen for ego
greed grab suck geiger counter static indicating Reptile Brain
De-Evolution. Dr. Frankenstein is gleefully waiting on every street
corner to perform a permanent lobotomy at your expense

Hear that Mass Market Corporate Media Bandwagon of Promise comin’ down the lane?

RUN!

Concerning SETTING THE COMPRESSOR AND SPRAY GUN SETTING:

typically automotive paint and clear coat requires AROUND 30-40 psi (pounds per square inch) coming out of the compressor going into the gun.
Check with your paint supplier to get the exact recommended psi for your paint.

Coming out of the gun nozzle this ends up being around just 10psi.

So, how do you set things?

The gun output should drop to 35 psi AS YOU ARE HOLDING DOWN THE GUN TRIGGER and spraying–
you’ll spray on a piece of plastic or cardboard to test and adjust.

When you are not spraying, the psi dial will be slightly higher on the tank.

Pressure drops a bit as you spray.

As it comes out, it is actually 8-10 psi, but going into the gun per your gauge reading, adjust as above.

the pressure coming out of the tank will be 35 psi at either the tank outlet or before the gun AS  YOU SPRAY–

make sure this is what it reads

The tank gauge when not spraying will only be probably 40-43psi

if you have the same husky tank as I do, there are two dials and one knob on the compressor

The knob sets the pressure out– and you’ll set it at about 42 or so–

Look at the output gauge as you spray– it should drop to 35 as you spray– if not, adjust the output psi so that it does register 35, or
the recommended paint psi for your brand of paint.

THE REAL SCOOP ON PAINTING YOUR CAR

The reason I learned how to paint a car is because I owned a rare collector car that would have cost me $3000-$4000  minimum to have the body work and paint done- and it needed it. AND, I could not afford this.

So, I contacted one of my friends, perhaps the best expert on fiberglass repair and body painting anywhere, Mr. Vic Cooper in Denver. He regularly repairs and repaints the most expensive, the most exotic passenger and race cars, from Lotuses to Lambos to hot rods. He taught me how to do this over a long period of time. Since I am a writer and film maker (and he and other experts I knew are not), I translated everything I learned from him into a form that people could easily learn from right off the web. I further got regular advice from an exceptionally good paint shop in Denver that specializes in automotive refinishing.

I spent months learning what works, and what doesn’t work- and when I was done I had done my first car, my white Lotus on the book cover. It turned out perfectly. And the method I used can be applied to any vehicle, fancy or plain, big or small, boat or car, truck, bike, or motorcycle.

 

There are tons of BAD books and DVDs that look good on the surface, but in practical use were complicated and had stuff in there that was unnecessary. I wanted to make material available that WORKED as advertised, and was not overly complicated or poorly written.

You may find yourself in a similar position looking at painting your vehicle- but without having done this previously, or have done it making many mistakes and not having things turn out so good. You may not know anyone who knows how to do this, or has the time to show you.

I will show you, because it is my business teaching people- and I’ve been a teacher for 35 years.

 

If you decide it is best to paint a car yourself, you will need a spray gun, a compressor, the paint, some miscellaneous small tools, sandpaper, and a certain amount of patience. Do it in a car port, garage, paint booth, or even in your driveway- Decide what is best for you.

You can borrow or rent the gun and compressor and save money that way, and pay about $100 for the paint and sandpaper, and if you read the instructions you can come up with a decent paint job on most cars. You will also need odds and ends which you may or may not have, light solvents, gloves, an air respirator, and other small items necessary for painting.

Or, you can spend about $250 on the gun and compressor, own it permanently and do lots of things with it for the rest of your life- like paint your house, air clean stuff, run other tools with it, etc.

If you have a special car or a collector car, plan on spending a lot of time sanding and re-sanding, and fine sanding, and polishing, and correcting your mistakes, and doing body work.

If you don’t have an extra $3000 sitting around, this may be your only choice- AND you can do it, and come up with an absolutely gorgeous job. I will show you how, and my methods come from THE BEST EXPERTS possible.

If you just have an old car and would rather do it yourself than spend $300 or $400 at the budget shops for a mediocre job that they will do, you can do it quickly and end up with a finish as good if not better than such shops, and spend a minimum amount of time doing it- although you will still need the materials and equipment you don’t already own, and a place to do it.

You can get the download or DVD (it is dirt cheap), or just read through the basics on this page  and get a good idea of what you will need to do.

Okay….you decide. No bull here. The best painting adventure to you!

Greetings Brain Explorers~!

Well I am rearranging my "web house" these days and have set up two new domains for you, and all else

This falls into the category of SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE-

To click on your FRONTAL LOBES, its always important to "think of the other guy and lend a hand…"

So, here’s a great chance for you to help A LOT OF PEOPLE, because
thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of people benefit from An Amazing Brain Adventure every year, with free Brain Self Control info, stories, music, photo, movies and more.

Every link you add somewhere helps countless people get to Their BRAIN.

first

www.NeilSlade.com is now officially

http://www.BrainRadar.com

so if you have a link, please update it, if you don’t have a link please add it and tell everybody!! Thanks
amygdala Frontal Lobes Brain Self Control– this is the place!

Brain Car Painting http://www.neilslade.com/Papers/Painting.html
 has moved to
http://www.easypaintyourcar.com

So also, very important, add this link as well!!

and I’ve added lots of new pages and articles, and will do this regularly.  Many people don’t know how easy it easy to repair and patin your car, as good as factory or BETTER. Check it out.  Painting your car can be fun, when you paint your car you can do a better job often than the "pro" shops, because you CARE, as you paint a car you learn about how your brain works, you increase certain brain motor skills, artistic skills, and you can be proud of the painting a car project you finish.

then

Inkjet printer and ink info http://www.neilslade.com/Papers/inkjetstuff.html has moved to

http://www.inkjethelper.com

Please add or update your link and tell everybody!

This is another important page, as it tells people how to fix their printers, and how to get and use the best ink– often at a fraction of the price they are used to doing. There are CHEAPER inks out there, but there are WAY more expensive inks as well. I’ve tested inks, printers and paper, and give the best advice I can on reasonably priced ink (half the price of OEM) that does a great job. Toner info too and maintenance info that is hard to find anywhere on the web. I deal with Canon, Espson, and other printers, ink jet cartridges, bulk ink, maintenance, waste tank error problems, alternative inks and cheap ink carts, tests, more than you can imagine.

This is a famously helpful page and has consistently ranked very high in the search engines as I give tips on saving TONS of money on ink, how to fix your printers, what ink and papers work best, what printers work best— you name it.

All in BRAIN SERVICE TO YOU!

SO– IF YOU HAVE A BLOG or WEBSITE, please POST A NEW LINK TO THESE PAGES. Tell about your experience, as this will make the page the link is MORE RELEVANT and IMPORTANT to the search engines which will then lead people to the pages, and ultimately to BRAINS that WORK RIGHT.

One of the most important things the car painting and ink pages do for me is to provide income so I can continue my Brain Work.
In the works is my new book, so stay tuned– its coming along WONDERFULLY!!  This will be particularly special to have ready, as I’ve mention that an actual Hollywood film is in production now, and the main character in the film, is (hold on to your eyebrows) "Neil Slade". I wonder who will play "me"—- Sean Penn, Sean Connery? or Pewee Herman?  hahahhah!

"Good morning Neil

My parallel universe looks a lot like this one…with some differences.  First of all, the inhabitants have learned to get along with each other.  They share resources without squandering natural resources.  They’ve learned to keep their numbers down to the level that can be sustained generation after generation .  Consequently, there is no reason for war.  People don’t fight for land or resources because each group has their own.  Citizens know how to advocate for their needs without clobbering their neighbor.  Men do not exploit women. People don’t become parents until they want to. Some decide not to, because they have a passion to contribute to society through other interests…like medicine, art or music.   Parents know about child development and the entire community supports the physical,mental, emotional and intellectual health of children.  Schools really educate, not baby sit.

Leaders first responsibility is to the public and not to big business.  There are restraints on government.  Government is kept small …just what is needed.

Because the earth is treated gently, the air is clean, noise is down, water is pure and the earth is fertile.  It looks like a garden.  Useless objects are not manufactured and hyped to the public. The society works for every one, not just white males.  All are included:  the elderly, the young, the handicapped and gay citizens all have a place in my alternate world.

Thanks for proposing the idea for me to contemplate.
Ellen"
