I have ALWAYS been uneasy about adjusting my state of consciousness via external means, yet even I’m enthusiastic about the social implications of the new “Thync” wearable technology.

Some tech reviewers have been comparing its ambition-enhancing or emotionally centering effects to those of coffee or marijuana, but without the downsides. Its effects are definitely more than the placebo effect for most users, but it seems that for some people its effects can be almost nonexistent or even unpleasant. Contrary to what TV shows and over-excited press releases might claim, human brain science is still only a few steps into a large dark room, and some stumbling about may occur.

The Thync wearable device uses a nuanced and perhaps pioneering method of stimulating our brain by focusing its stimulation upon particular cranial nerves, which in turn signal to our brain & body that it is time either to relax or to be ambitious and productive.

I expect that its effects vary due to neurodiversity, because after all, some people are more receptive, some people are more resistant to everything, and some people are just far more anxious about cues in their environment that their colleagues may not even notice! One tech reviewer testing a beta version of the Thync at MIT surmised that it was less effective in some settings compared to others, and I would expect this considering the different stimuli which our brain is probably still responding to in an office, a classroom, an empty hotel room, or out in nature. I imagine this won’t be as much of a challenge for the Thync “energizing” wearable, but it bears noting that the “calming” wearable (both are sold together) might have to contend with a lot of contrary stimuli from one’s environment. With that said, multiple reviewers reported some surprising and consistent mood effects which demonstrate what this technology can do, and, for this reason, I am excited for this and future versions.

When MIT reviewed the beta version, one Director of Neuropsychiatry it consulted said “one of the benefits of this device is that it’s very, very safe. The worst-case scenario is it does nothing.” I am still a little concerned about its long-term daily use, however, because if people use this once or more a day, will their body adapt to that frequent stimuli in some unexpected way? Even one of the research articles underpinning Thync speaks of the product in terms of daily use, saying: “using TEN [transdermal electrical neurosignaling] in such a manner represents a promising approach to managing daily stress and improving health.

    Say it isn’t so. Regardless how it is marketed it nothing short of a brain-washing brain-altering device. Who is going to program it and what hidden programming is already in it?

    I had already heard talk of techno lobotomies. Said they could decrease a persons belief in a higher power and also change their political views. Basically cause to be uncaring. The body is a bio antenna we use to pick up signals from as far way as the otherwise of the universe. This is an attrocity. I also saw where a tech company made an electronic cigarette that used no chemicals but “tickled” the right part of the brain to stimulate it as the chemicals do. People becoming addicted to mechanical devices is noting new. Look at phycology produced Facebook games and computer porn. Using a computer to stimulate natural brain chemicals. Nothing new. Where is my DMT inducer. Oh wait yeah they got that. Look up project Montok

    This sounds even better than crazy pills!!! The lady looks like she just got abused but is still somehow smiling…
