  1. I have polyphasic perception on a lot of problems. I can see things for what they are in the real world. I can read people's faces and decipher my idea of their intent. I'm right pretty often. I had a lot of practice locked up in building 50 for two weeks. It was like a live chat room. Almost like an echo box or Echo chamber where I could hear the responses to my statements to the air. I was speaking indirectly to everybody in the room and only the people that had something to say responded in the first person. It was a lot of good practice to speak only in the first person and understand other humans better. I went downstairs and talk to my brother and he learned that he could buy games from his 3DS. When I get back from my weekend vacation with Loren, I plan on setting it up directly from my bank account for him. Just so he can buy any game he wants. I love my brother Robert giese

  2. I write my own book on the internet. When I was in building 50 I took only the book covers. I have a small collection of the sleeves. I don't have the attention span to read the whole book but I can pick up just the information I need to have a conversation buy only the cover. I just hope the person I'm talking to read the book

  3. I have come back to listen/watch this interview on YouTube and on podcast as well as having full notes on this just because how much I learn something new every time or to even be reassured but it's just amazing..

  4. The best thing which I liked and enjoyed about this video is easy conscious communication, just that 104minutes of how one person listens to the other.. That simple talking and sharing thought's. That's magnificent.
    Best regards from Lithuania (Europe) keep on going .

  5. All my recent videos have been interesting to the point of Ahaaas , but this video explains what all humanity SHOULD be capable of learning to do and WOULD be learning except for this being forbidden! Just WHO benefits when humanity has been dumbed down?
