The Awesome Science of Luck

Imagine, as a professional poker player, developing the ability to receive strong and accurate impressions of the cards about to be dealt or those in another player's hand. Would they consider you lucky? Absolutely! But in truth, you would be using the awesome science behind what others call luck. Back in 1981, the 97th U.

S. Congress made a commitment to research these abilities that are generally attacked by quack busters. The government began a multi-million-dollar program at Stanford Research Institute (now SRI International) in Menlo Park, CA. They began to study the human perceptual ability known as remote viewing. What's really exciting is that people who play poker already have the untapped potential to easily heighten their perceptual abilities not only that, but, I believe, influence the way the cards fall. Now, before you discount me as a crackpot, consider this scientific study by Princeton University.

It was called the PEAR project at Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research. They developed a random events generator that measured very-low-frequency energies transmitted by human intention. The unit had 9000 small balls that cascaded over 330 pegs into 19 collection bins. You would naturally conclude that all the balls would always fall the same way over the same pegs into the same collection bins. Not so! The study confirmed that subjects could influence the direction the balls fell by their focused intention. Which do you think might be more difficult: to influence the fall of 9000 balls or the fall of a few cards? If this sounds too far out, ask yourself why Boeing would have a distinguished physicist, Helmut Schmidt, create a digital random number generator to study how the human mind is able to influence what we call chance or luck in such a way that the outcome matches our intention.

If your intention is to win big at the World Series of Poker, when do you think the best time to begin training would be? Ah, here's where not only the test of perception, but the battle of intention begins. There is a saying, "The drive is in the talent!" So at the poker table, just like in the ring, the one with the most heart, or intensive drive, who remains focused is the one who usually wins. Talent is important, but without the magic of a laser-like intention, it remains weak. If it's scientifically proven that the fall of 9000 balls can be influenced by mental intention, then winning at poker is governed by how focused and conscious you can remain.

If you do that, the cards you want will come to you. Let's first look at where our emotions come from. Emotions are the results or aftereffects of our conclusions. Fear, for example, is often expressed as the result of a subconscious conclusion about our ability to perform. It manifests as a shudder of doubt that causes you to hesitate and question your actions. Let's say you're having a series of bad hands.

You might conclude this isn't your night. Actually, you'll be correct, since that conclusion will filter down deep into your subconscious. Next, your subconscious mind will cause these ripples of doubt to influence your nervous system, which will be expressed in the detectable nuances of your body language.

Your opponent, seeing that, bluffs and you fold. Seeing his cards, you just scratch your head, wondering why you did such a stupid thing. Once you have a relaxed sense of confidence, your intentions can take center stage. This is the art of winning.

How confident would you be at the card table knowing that you're aware of the cards that have already been played? The way you do this is to become so intimate with a deck of cards that not only do you remember how they fall, but you sense what card it is before it's shown face up. Let them be so intimate that they simply become extensions of your fingers. Briefly, science has discovered a magnetic compound in the pineal glands of humans and animals.

It is this magnetite, a magnetic chemical, that allows migratory animals, birds, and fish to find their way to locations that appear next to impossible to locate without a map or radar of some kind. How do they do that so unerringly? It's the natural functioning of the magnetic quality of that gland. This is why I began experimenting with wearing a very strong rare earth magnetic headband. If you want to magnetize a nail, all you have to do is stick it on a strong magnet: after a time, the nail also becomes magnetic.

So I concluded that it must work the same way with my pineal gland. I have found that it greatly increases my perceptions and luck. Our ability to see didn't go away; our mind simply blocked what it considered irrelevant to the moment. However, by using soft focus and letting our thought chemicals settle, we not only sense but see in our mind's eye unusual and seemingly unrelated clues. The clues can cause strong urgings to play our hand a certain way. The more relaxed we become, the more clues we receive and the more we win, not only at the table, but in life.
