A Brief Guide to Tutorial Structure

 

The little pictures in the tutorials before each section give you a clue to what that section is about. The caduceus ‘Intal’ sign below will occur together with general information about each tutorial.

If you want to pick out just the science info first, look for sections with this little brain pic below.

 

brain

 

The sign below indicates experiments, fun things to do, hacks, tricks and games, usually that you can try right away. It is an indication that you should 'play', because this is the fastest way to learn.

The white rabbit (below) is your guide to the basics of what’s going on in the brain, explained in a simple, summarizing, non-technical way. If you get lost or confused, follow the white rabbit! -Go back to the white rabbit sections for reminders of the basics before continuing.

The ‘Dead-end’ sign below occurs with information about brain/mind problems, their causes, and how to get around or avoid them.

 

 

 

NHA guides: This picture below heads a section in each tutorial where you will learn about methods; techniques and technology used in neurohacking.

In-Text Questions

Your skill in understanding and mastering the techniques is developed partly by ‘in-text questions’. These, and their answers (which follow immediately after the questions) are indicated by the standard signs ‘Q’ and ‘A’, and they are a crucial part of the strategy of the program. You should try to answer them as you encounter them, ideally by thinking of your own answer before reading the answer we have provided. Sometimes these questions are intended to make you think about the implications of a course of action or the interpretation of an idea presented in the text. Sometimes they are ways of ‘revising’ material that has appeared in earlier tutorials, and making links between different aspects of intelligence.

 

Hacks & Exercises

There are fun hacks, experiments and assignments in the tutorials, and exercises for all the main brain networks and the functions they control as you go along.

Intal develops all brain networks. The information with the exercises in a tutorial will tell you which networks each particular exercise is for. (Don’t worry, ‘networks’ will be explained in the tutorials).     If you want to focus on just one aspect of mental performance [for example, memory], you can just pick out the exercises or hacks for the networks controlling that, but if you do things in the correct order you will find that every network you improve will help to improve the performance of all the others. So, if you are aiming for overall intelligence augmentation you will get the best results by going through the tutorials and practising the exercises you need in the order in which they are presented.

 

Assignments & Self-Assessment

The tutorials also contain ‘assignments’, where you have particular questions to answer or tasks to do. These are to improve your awareness of your own progress and we don’t expect you to ‘send them in’ to us or anything. There are no grades or exams in this program because everybody passes!

Self assessments are sometimes structured in order that you can find out specifics about your brain [for example, to do an assessment of just one function such as empathy skills, or to test just one aspect of your memory]. Other times they are designed to show you how well you are doing overall in the program itself or how well you have grasped techniques.

 

Examples

Some tutorials give examples of self-assessments or assignments that were completed by other students. Wherever we have used these, the students' names are removed or changed for privacy, but the examples are always those of real people following the program.

If you do an assignment that you're particularly pleased with and you'd like to donate it as an example for fellow students in these tutorials, that's great. We'll remove your name for privacy.

 

Intal FAQ

If you don’t understand something in the tutorials or you have more questions before you begin, it’s worth looking at the FAQ section to see if it’s covered there; because somebody else may have asked the same questions already.

 

More Science Info

If you want to explore the scientific proof, research and neuroscience theory behind Intal, follow up the related papers in the library that the tutorials recommend. The tutorials themselves are a practical program with basic science explanations only.

 

Feedback

The tutorials are frequently updated, but you can use them at any time. Lots more tutorials are on the way, and we’ll post messages to the forum when they are up and running. Meanwhile we’d appreciate any feedback that can help us to make it better for you, so do interact and tell us if any parts seem confusing or too hard. We want your progress to be fast, easy, and smooth.


Finally

This program and the information and techniques in it are open source and can be used by anyone for anything with certain exceptions.

It is not to be sold or used for making financial profit in any way

It is not to be used with intentions of coercion or any deliberate attempt to control others, including children.

Any person breaking these conditions will be denied access to the NHA community and all connected sites.

Neurohacking is NOT FOR WIMPS. YOU are considered fully responsible for yourself and your own behavior. Get used to this.

 

"You decide your own level of involvment" (Tyler Durden, Fight Club)

"Your focus determines your reality" (Qui-Gon Jinn, Jedi Master)

 

The NHA considers itself responsible for publishing the information on this site because we believe people have the right to know the truth (or more precisely the clearest picture of the truth we can have with today's technology and empirical experience). The Truth Is Out There, but the NHA cannot be taken as responsible for the use people will make of it.

 

"He's old enough to know what's right and young enough not to choose it

"He's noble enough to win the world but weak enough to lose it"

(Neil Peart, 'New world man')

 

Being intelligent means taking individual responsibility to use all resources in the service of intelligence itself. Persons doing otherwise will be denied access to the NHA community as registered members (and to all connected sites). Our library remains open to everyone and we cannot restrict access selectively to anything publicly available.

 

"You've got to practice what you preach, yeah ha,

Cause it's time for you and me, come to face reality"

(Jimi Hendrix, 'Straight Ahead')

 

The NHA fully assumes responsibility for anything marked as "Written by NHA", all articles written by individual authors reflect solely their author's personal opinions, ontologies, theories or hypotheses.

 

"Remember that all I am offering is the truth. Nothing more."

(Morpheus, The Matrix)
