Future Imperative

What if technology were being developed that could enhance your mind or body to extraordinary or even superhuman levels -- and some of these tools were already here? Wouldn't you be curious?

Actually, some are here. But human enhancement is an incredibly broad and compartmentalized field. We’re often unaware of what’s right next door. This site reviews resources and ideas from across the field and makes it easy for readers to find exactly the information they're most interested in.

Name:

The future is coming fast, and it's no longer possible to ignore how rapidly the world is changing. As the old order changes -- or more frequently crumbles altogether -- I offer a perspective on how we can transform ourselves in turn... for the better. Nothing on this site is intended as legal, financial or medical advice. Indeed, much of what I discuss amounts to possibilities rather than certainties, in an ever-changing present and an ever-uncertain future.

A Potential Weapon Against the Effects of Diabetes... -- Bio, Easy, Myst, Self

*
I’m posting the following technique for boosting circulation to any part of your body because I’ve personally found it to be quick and easy and because diminishing circulation to the extremities can be a serious problem for people with diabetes and other ailments. This visualization exercise, created by Dr. Win Wenger, requires only your mind and a few minutes ofyour time. If you are having trouble with your circulation or would simply like to avoid such problems in the future, you will probably find this technique well worth the minimal effort needed to employ it.

In addition to using this method for my own benefit, I’ve told other people how to use it, and it has consistently proven effective. I know one woman who suffers from diabetes and who once mentioned to me that her poor circulation made her feet very uncomfortable in certain circumstances. I explained this methodology to her, and when I ran into her again several months later, she told me her feet were no longer a problem because whenever they troubled her she would use this technique for immediate relief.

I will add that I am not a doctor and I am certainly not prescribing anything to anyone(especially anyone I’ve never even met). And I certainly don’t advocate making any radical changes in your present course of treatment without consulting a physician. However, these are simply visualization exercises, and you are all likely used to using your minds in many different ways every day, so a little more thinking shouldn’t prove too terribly disruptive to anyone’s health or lifestyle. If you try these instructions out for yourself you’ll have a better idea of what they can do for you. I hope everyone reading them now finds them as valuable as my friend did.

-----------------

Everything immediately below is an excerpt from Dr. Wenger’s book Beyond OK, Copyright 1979.

Control of Blood-Flow Circulation

Of many easy ways to control blood-flow circulation, the “Expander Technique” is perhaps the easiest. Whichever area(s) of the body you wish to increase blood flow to, simply imagine that particular part of the body is an inch larger in all directions and an inch further out from the center of the body than it really is.

With one inch “expansion,” the body image will expand circulation to supply the imagined larger area.

Except for the hands and feet (see “Limb-Extender,” below), beyond two inches “expansion” and the effect disappears. If you have thermal bio-feedback monitoring equipment, or once you sensitize to the feelings of increased circulation (warmth, tingling and/or pulsing sensation), you can range the degree of imagined expansion between one-half inch and two inches to find the point of maximum effect.

With the “Expander Technique,” circulation increase is specific – particular tissues and organs can be flushed with extra circulation without noticeably affecting surrounding tissues.

The best parts of the body to expand circulation to, other things equal, are:

· the brain, where in the average person over 30 years of age, 100,000 brain cells die everyday from declining circulation;
· the womb area during pregnancies, where circulation-flushing appears to greatly enhance the development of fetuses by speeding the removal of toxic wastes.

“Limb-Extender,” variant of the “Expander Technique” gives easy instant feedback in cold weather if your hands or feet are cold. Imagine arms (or legs) much longer; imagine reaching through the space occupied by the physical hands (or feet) “to” some distant object. Hands (or feet) warm somewhat, instantly.

It is not yet known whether bleeding can be reduced or stopped by the inverse procedure, of imagining the injured part of the body to be smaller and closer in to the center of the body than it actually is – Psychegenicists generally don’t have accidents and so have little opportunity to test such a procedure. None of us thus far have felt like deliberately damaging anything just to make the test or demonstration.

-----------------

When I originally posted this article on the Imagestream discussion list on Yahoo, Dr. Wenger offered the following response...

Ralph: thank you profoundly for bringing this portion of our work to the use of people very much in need of it! As simple as the technique is, so that some may believe it cannot possibly help and won't bother to test it, some will and that will be that many human lives helped. Of course the technique costs nothing, and so "no salesman will call" to remind people or professionals or advise them about it.

A further note: The feet are the part of the body most at risk for circulation failure and eventual amputations, especially in diabetes. Even if the person doesn't learn and practice our regular "energy combing" (which you were so kind to post once before), if they can, while lying down, FEEL their legs to be a lot longer, long enough so they can FEEL that their toes are scraping grooves in the far wall of, say, their bedroom, this will get up a lot of circulation.

A further further note: exercise makes a huge difference also in such matters. It's not very psychegenic but I rebuilt my general physical health very considerably by walking a mile or so a day over these past three years. And by the same principle, deep toe curls on a regular basis, a few of them a time or so per day, will go a long way toward keeping feet and toes healthy. Best type of deep toe curl is a combination with the above extended-toes-scraping-the-far-wall. ...As the initial part of a scrape UP the wall, the toes can go into a downward curl that's actually deeper (and more restorative) than an all-out effort to curl the toes down, and less likely to provoke muscle cramps. Anyone especially that's on the verge of getting a toe amputated, this combination is a remarkably effective way to bring it - and your feet generally - back to a much more viable condition: with legs imagined to be longer, FEEL as if your toes are scraping grooves UPward in the far wall, precede each "scrape" with a downward curl of toes from the bottom of which curl to get maximum "scrape."

Devices: Many or most hospitals are equipped with a mechanical device to improve circulation to the feet by pumping excess fluid out of them by means of an inflated air sock wrapped tightly around the feet and ankles. Hardly anyone ever bothers to use it, though, perhaps because amputations involve so much more money. I've invented a device - on paper - that uses a much better principle, to pump circulation into and out of the feet, to literally sluice circulation back and forth through the feet. An utterly simple device, but I need help physically building it - any handymen or engineers reading this? One friend did build a preliminary version of this device for his diabetic mother. Even though it only pulled circulation into the feet and did nothing to push it back out, reportedly it worked miracles for her. She hadn't been able to wear shoes in two years; reportedly the next morning she was "dancing like a teen-ager." What the full device will do, I'd like to find out. Anyone reading this who'd be interested in helping me to build the full -and simple- device, please contact to that effect and I'll send you a simple non-disclosure agreement form to get things started. Note: America has far more amputees from diabetes than from all its wars; this one could make a very real difference indeed. ...win
