Jan 10th 2008 12:05PM These are the absolute basics of the eye scanning patterns utilized in NLP. And it works, but there is enough information left out that it gives an ok idea about reading liars, but therre is so much more to it. Breating patterns have to be watched, in fact, in nlp, you tend to watch the entire phisiology of the person. Of course there are millions of clues to what a person is thinking at any given moment, it would be impossible to WATCH for every singal signal, but like any learned behaviour, when you learn the techniques of nlp, you learn to read the most important signals unconsciously. I'll watch a persons eyes for eye scanning patterns....but every other movement and observation is made from what I pick up in my peripheral vision. More information is picked up and stored in memory from peripheral vision, than from direct vision. If you don't believe that, then study martial arts. In a competition or fight, watching their fists will slow your reaction to block. However if you watch your opponents eyes, you'll not only see the punch coming quicker.....you'll actually SEE the moment their muscles tense to throw the punch. So, this is solid information, but very, very incomplete.
Mar 24th 2007 7:33AM The Bell Pack, mentioned abovewas a minor design change on the jet packs made for NASA. They were hard to control, since you didn't fly, so much as jumps through the air without touching the ground. In the 80's along with the space shuttle came a redisigned jetpack thatdoes more flying and less jumping. Since then the idea has been to make the flights safer, control better, less jumping and more real flying. On the upnote, when I last remember checking the prices for jetpacks in the early 90's. The old bell was down to about 3/4 of a mil and the new ones were a mere 13,000,000 dollars. It's nice to see the price dropped, maybe soon we all can afford one. :-)
