Modify consciousness with magnetic implants

Would it be possible to implant a a magnet in your temple inside of the skull to induce a more meditative state.


  • How would a magnet in your temple induce a more meditative state?
  • @dennisrider12 - You might consider reading a book titled "Spirit Tech: The Brave New World of Consciousness Hacking and Enlightenment Engineering". It addresses exactly what you're asking about.

  • No way. There's a whole book on the hokey? Weird.
  • There is a lot of evidence in recent research that consciousness is down to an interaction of neural magnetic fields.
  • Is not that strange, consider tDCS works by stimulating the brain with electro magnetic stimulations. With full magnet I would worry of the reaction of the brain in time. Usually tDCS stimulations is done max for 2 hours or most much less.
    Plus the brain tents to build resistance to changes in the long term. And requires changes to the stimulation.

    @bretbernhoft Thanks for the book.
