Dr. Norma came this afternoon and brought our new toy. It was the first time I got to see what we paid so much money for!
It turns out that it came with demons pre-installed which had been causing extreme havoc for Dr. Norma’s learning curve. After some of my classic cross examination of the witnesses and careful interpretation of the data, we determined which rock they were hiding under.
A good old fashioned hack and whack session ensued and order was restored.
Megan then officiated over the marriage of the qEEG equipment to the high powered laptop we had acquired. While she was busy there, Dr. Norma and I arm wrestled over the protocol we would use. It was rough, but we eventually managed to reduce our desired 2,732 questions to a mere 15.
I guess we can’t really answer all the mysteries of the human spirit with one experiment. Sigh. (Have you ever noticed that reality can be a real downer?)
This is the protocol we will use for the initial run of two dozen people or so. Once we have some raw data, we will study it, average it, group it, and decide how to refine our questions, but this is a starting point.
For the first round, we chose a seasoned Plumbliner who had not only received a lot of spirit ministry but had ministered to others as well.
Dr. Norma wired the client up and fired up the equipment. We were pretty clumsy and unsure of ourselves but figured we would go ahead anyway.
I walked the client through the different exercises while Dr. Norma watched the screen and tracked the transition from one item to the next.
At the end, the client was exhausted. Dr. Norma was ebullient. And I got left out of the fun since I was doing all the heavy lifting.
However, Dr. Norma reported that certain of the exercises produced such an abrupt and sustained change in the brain waves on the screen that there can be no doubt that our system is working.
She now has to go back to her consultant with a punch list of questions. We know there is much we can learn to do better and more smoothly.
Hopefully in a few days she will send us our first graph and we can start the endless discussions of why this question did that, and that one did something else, and what would be the implications if the spirit activated these regions of the brain instead of those, etc.
All told, it was a smashing success. While the medical field uses this equipment to track tiny variables and therefore needs significant controls, we are looking at macro shifts in brain activity, so even with our fairly primitive firstfruits, we know that there is very usable data.
I think it is going to hit me hard later tonight. We actually did it. It works. We are under way. It is a beginning. There is an endless realm of opportunities before us to train the spirit to transform our brains and bodies and help our souls as well. It is huge.
But, since I have been in left brain, task oriented mode all day, escorting this process along the road, the emotions haven’t really landed yet.
So I shall sign off forthwith and find out what I feel when I start feeling what we did today.
