Our mission is to use the best of what we know about how the brain and mind work from all fields and disciplines in the service of realizing humanity’s deepest potentials as a species, starting with the self and moving outward.
Whole Systems Health
Our core belief is that the body has a natural intelligence that can be supported and enhanced. We take the greatest care not to override the system or create imbalances. All of our products are designed to work synergistically with the chemistries of the body, with the goal of creating optimal functioning of the whole human system.
A Science that is based on an unvarnished attention to reality:
“[Our] only test of probable truth is what works best in the way of leading us, what fits every part of life best and combines with the collectivity of experience’s demands, nothing being omitted.”
– William James
Competence over credentials:
If you know what you are doing and can play nicely with others, it doesn’t matter what your title is.
We believe in empowered responsibility. “The highest form of efficiency is the spontaneous coordination of a free people.”
– Woodrow Wilson
A Collaborative Spirit:
This new kind of science depends upon sharing research and results with honesty, rigor and respect. “The frontier of human productivity today is the power of extended collaboration.”
– Tammy Erickson
We use the best techniques of modern business to deliver on our mission. Mission centered, profit supported.
We say what we mean and we mean what we say. Congruence, truthfulness, and clarity.
Who We Are
In his 2013 answer to the annual Edge magazine question, Eric Weinstein made a distinction between two very different kinds of people: the “excellent” and the “remarkable”. The former, he says, have optimized for playing and winning the current dominant game. They have gone to the best schools. They have worked at the best institutions. They have excelled. Echoing evolutionary theory, he calls them “hill climbers” – and if you need to climb a hill, they are the right people to call.
But if the challenge is not to climb some well understood hill, but to cross the “adaptive valley” of the unknown, the excellent are woefully unprepared. If you need to wander through uncertainty in search of an as yet poorly understood but potentially vastly superior game, you need to call on an entirely different kind of person: the remarkable.
Meet some of the neurohackers (this list is ever growing).
