The meeting last night was not the most emotionally uplifting.
It seems that for every dreamer God created (ME!) He carefully designed someone who is deeply rooted in reality (like some of the scientists on my team).
Then He puts us together, working on the same project. Imagine the two left wheels on the car powered by a Formula 1 engine and the two right wheels powered by a Peterbilt. It steers kind of funky.
So, I hereby grumpily announce that my dream has (temporarily) ceded ground to the logically defensible, reality-based world view of my more cerebral colleague.
In other words, launch date for first trials is closer to January 1st than December 1st.
Since we are not only doing qEEGs in a way they were never intended to be done, but we are seeking to marry that data to our HRV data, it seems we need to spend more time figuring out how we are going to interpret this data in such a way that it is useful to mankind before acquiring it.
Our lead doctor made a fairly compelling case that substantial quantities of irrelevant, useless data might not make the world a better place.
So I rummaged through my box of Halloween costumes in the attic and found this really old, dusty outfit of a proper, linear, left brain, methodical, meticulous, unhurried academician and I have worn it for pretty close to 24 hours already.
I want you all to know I have to make some horrific, heroic sacrifices for this project.
