Thankful for inclusivity!

This is quite a sensitive topic for me to openly talk about so please bear with me!

I’m not one to ever play the card of victimization of being a minority, as an underprivileged brown little woman. I’ve always worked hard regardless of circumstances. Who knows? Perhaps I’d be further along if I were not a minority but we’ll never know because frankly looking this is all I know!

It is for this reason that I truly appreciate the movement of ‘inclusivity’.

Yet a far more painful experience that I’ve had (first hand) is the fact that I also never looked like a scientist/researcher. While I could deal with being a minority, the latter was far more painful to deal with.. Both women and men have had things to say about my looks. I tried to accommodate by trying to play the part. Yet people never seemed satisfied.

Just a few examples to illustrate the point: older American man comes up to me after one of my talks, remarking my skinny jeans. A conservative woman from Africa said she’d be embarrassed to invite me to give talks in her home country. A Christian American woman said she couldn’t take me seriously because of the way I looked, and the list goes on.. all this and many more despite the fact that my research and scientific findings were quite valid, cutting edge, and added value to the body of scientific knowledge.

Despite all this it never occurred to me to stop my work simply because my research is the air in my lungs, something I cannot live without.

So for those few people who are open minded, I truly appreciate the movement of inclusivity because those who think for themselves have surpassed the superficialities and are able to hear us out despite the fact that some of us just don’t look like scientists/researchers!

Happy thanksgiving 🍁

Self experimenting by mimicking cyborg brain

As part of my indie post doc project I’m also starting this self experiment to use tiny electrical shocks on prefrontal lobes to help stimulate & measure potential enhanced activities of the frontal brain. Let’s see how it goes 🤯

Using NeuroMyst for now 👇

Can Cyborg implants cure stupidity?

I am only addressing my own experience here and not the condition of other scientists, inventors, creators, etc. Genuinely curious to learn about possible existing (or future) cyborg products that may help with extending, transcending, and expanding the human intelligence.

Musical tunes, brainwaves, and NFTs

Starting to share my creation of electronic musical tunes to help guide brainwaves oscillations towards constructive state of human being and to mint those as short NFTs to intake the way we pop our daily vitamins and supplement pills to promote health and well being.

New vid on YouTube: Composing electronic music to help guide brainwaves oscillations towards spec state of being & to mint them as short NFTs to intake like daily vitamins/supplement pills to promote & well being?

In brainwaves analysis what do these file formats mean? CED, EDF, CSV

This question has come up a few times so I hope this explanation helps.
