Here is an excellent picture of the back of my head. The front of my head is studiously studying the big screen where someone’s valuable squiggles are joyously romping along.
Wiggles and Squiggles
I am reminded frequently that I am good at quite a number of things, but sitting still for long periods of time is not in the top 100 of my strengths and skills.
Ask Mom. She had the ill fortune to have to try to home school this free spirit. It was a losing proposition for both of us, I think.
This particular test shows a substantial amount of activity at FP1 (the top heavy line) and CZ, the middle erratic line.
The FP1 lead is attached to the left side of the forehead. There is one in a parallel spot on the right side of the forehead. This was a wonderful case of hard core, left brain dominance. If this volunteer ever had to think a right brain thought, it would be challenging at best.
It is quite fun to see that played out in the brain in different people. Since we used the same protocol throughout, we can compare a lot of different responses to the same questions.
CZ is the spot on the top of the head. It is where we most commonly register demonic activity. It was interesting to watch that one line in the EEG, in light of the different questions I asked. Let’s just say whatever was resident there, appreciated some of my assignments less than others.
In mathematical terms, there was a certain inverse relationship manifesting here, if you get my drift.
My questions have flowed marvelously this week. And while hypotheses are strictly frowned upon at this early stage of research, a few have had the trepidation to intrude in my stream of consciousness anyway.
One of Megan’s assignments for this week is to see if she can copy a few seconds of an EEG to embed in these blogs. If so, we will have some very entertaining commentary forthcoming.
Should she have the temerity to fail in her assignment, you will have to suffer through some boring screen shots instead.
Also this week I will update the video on this blog, sharing where we have been and where I think we might be going — provided that is that Megan is up to it.
She has been on vacation for a week and spent a fair amount of it at the lake, learning how to slalom. Rumor has it she is coming back with one sore leg and expects to be on light duty for a while.
Whatever light duty at Sapphire means . . .
