11 August 2021 – What I Learned Today
- There is a large literature on mindfulness!
- There is evidence that mindfulness and neuroticism are negatively correlated.
- There are “Olympic” level meditators who can generate tremendous levels of gamma waves in their brains. Gamma waves seem to reflect immense satisfaction and synchrony in the brain – they occur after you have solved a difficult problem. Olympic meditators create gamma waves when they meditate.

Thorn: Dealing with prepping my classroom – finding correct “dongle” was a pain today!
