We reveal cheat codes for the brain
In life's game, you get a complex bundle of electric-meat as your controller. No user guide included.

We can stop mashing buttons now. New research shows that we can activate peak brain states, enhance cognition, level-up creativity, and dice challenges into confetti.
No offense, but your brain is a basket case
Your brain lies, has multiple personalities, and does things behind your back.

But it's also immured in your skull so you might as well learn to love it - and that begins with understanding.

Brain science should whip its hair in the wind, get friendlier, and spill useful secrets.

Consider yourself invited to cross “change existence” off your todo-list between sips of a drink with a tiny umbrella in it.

Switch brain networks with smexy panache and bend your neural reality like a baby yoda for any or no purpose at all.

Your brain is a wet-bar stocked with luxe brain-states distilled for any whim or ambition.

But how can you learn to mix the perfect noggin’ cocktail for any occasion?

You could mine through mountains “change- your-brain” click-bait at self-help websites that want to sell you onyx vaginal eggs that “activate the root chakra”.

Or… you could study neuro-research journals…
but many of us would rather lie with a 🐐

In 2013, Josiah’s brain made a left-turn and smashed into a state of kensho – sprinkling infernos of curiosity about the existential relationship of consciousness, qualia, and brain-states upon the landscape of his mind. Josiah now creates and curates research-backed techniques to optimize the brain for the best possible multiverse.
