Consciousness Hacking Meetup - Santa Cruz Message Board › Use David Lynch to Hack Your Consciousness Problem-solving

Use David Lynch to Hack Your Consciousness Problem-solving

I just read an article suggesting that being exposed to confusing experiences might temporarily enhance your problem-solving ability.

"Any time you encounter "meaning threat"—that unsettling feeling you get when something makes no sense—your brain starts to work harder, says Travis Proulx, a researcher at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Test-takers were almost twice as accurate in analyzing data and learning patterns after Proulx and his colleague made them read bizarre, nonsensical stories by Kafka and David Lynch. "

Watching video with languages you don't speak seemed to have much the same effect.
