Rapid Eye Movement or REM
Similar to what happens during the dreaming phase of sleep.
While in REM we are able to make new associations between things very rapidly.
So, to artificially access REM state (via bi-lateral stimulation) allows us to break
old clusters of information, instil new learning, and new healthier templates.
REM state programmes the central nervous system to learn instinctive behaviours
This is why newborns spend so much time sleeping, they’re ‘downloading’ templates.
