Quantified-Self and OpenBCI Neurofeedback Mind-Hacking

Transhumanism, Self-Optimization and Neurofeedback for post-modern hackers

Hacking Mind and Body – self knowledge through numbers and mental reprogramming

Since ancient times humans were trying to improve themselves. Today we have open-source computer technology that helps us.

Can we use Neurofeedback to increase your intelligence? How do we go about answering the question? Trust the experts... Outsource responsibility?! Maybe not: We create beliefs ourselves without relying on authorities. We gather empiric evidence about changes of our intelligence.

In this talk we will speak about our own experience on going that way. We will also speak about the results of other people in the growing Quantified Self movement.

As hackers we look beyond the obvious and directly apparent, behind the curtain of the rabbit hole we find power to change reality. Let's turn the hacking mindset onto ourselves or shall we say our "Optimized Self". Get an overview of the latest trends in "Quantified Self" Self-Optimization, and mental techniques to level-up the projection of your digital self in the matrix.

Using automated modern computer systems and electronic sensors, we can track the functions and changes of our mind and body and look into the "Mirror of the Digital Self". Analyzing, and finally optimizing, the patterns we find, a new and optimized self can be envisioned, and gradually metamorphed into, using scientific method and data mining statistics.


Join us in this talk about:

> IQ measurement and lung self-tracking (Christian Kleineidam)

> open-source Bio-Feedback (MeTaVoLuti0N) > Neurofeedback MindHacking (MeTaVoLuti0N)

Record work, sleep, exercise, diet, mood, mind, iq, brainwave states and changes, and find out when and how you can function best and achieve your goals in post-modern times.

in the second part of the talk MetaMind Evolution will give an overview about the OpenBCI open source brain/body/bio computer-interface project, and after the event will help with your Brain-Computer-Interface project, during workshops in the evening in the HardwareHackingArea.
