Yes, I'm also interested in the potential effects of increasing the number of stimuli vs increasing the lookback period.
Haha! Yes, remembering one's dream can be frightening at first. but it's important to realize that sleep is a way of healing psychological trauma. All those issues lurking under the surface that one is not necessarily even aware of. There's been several experiments showing that sleep is an important part of therapy and general well-being.

I just used your numbers to buy a lottery ticket; you better be right!
All those guys mainly use "The Journey Method", I think. It's pretty fascinating. I've never done any memory exercises, but my memory has always been quite good. It'd be interesting to see how far I can take it. I've always found memory techniques to be kind of corny, though...
I started using "Brain Workshop" again yesterday, and I'm excited to see if I get an equally big boost this time around. I did a lot of mental exercises last year, but stopped, due to time constraints, when I started studying financial mathematics. I have concluded that going to school is detrimental to one's mental health!
I'll look forward to your next update.
The following user says Thank You to Lornz for this post:
I've been doing Triple Dual-Back for some time, and it has done wonders for my concentration. I'm unsure if I'm going to move to quadruple width, or triple length. Adding color (which is what I did),makes me feel that I'm utilizing more of my brain; it becomes multi-dimensional. I have ADD and OCD, but lately I've been reading pages and pages without any trouble at all. I can also hear the layers of music more distinctly. It's like I've become my old self again, before OCD ruined my ability to concentrate (which was already poor due to ADD). It's a wonderful feeling not having to force myself to concentrate anymore. It all comes so naturally, just like in my teens.
It's an amazing thing, and I really regret not continuing doing it when I first came across it a couple of years ago. I'm nearly addicted now; it gives me a natural high. It's funny, because I was the one who posted about it, but I never really did it systematically. It was only after reading about your progress that I found the motivation to give it a fair shot. Thanks!
