The research of Tony Wright has fascinated me since I first came across it and it has influenced my life in many ways. His basic idea is that the left half of the human brain is damaged but in control, while the right half has some amazing abilities which we are mostly unaware of because the left half of the brain doesn’t allow us. There are various techniques for accessing the right brain, notably things like meditation, but what Tony has found most powerful is sleep deprivation, which is what has led him to his next experiment, to try and stay awake for 11 days (and by doing so break the current world record). This experiment starts in 2 days on Monday May 14th and if you live near Penzance, Cornwall (England) you can go and visit Tony and see how he’s doing. See the website www.sleeplessinpenzance.co.uk for more info.
The other exciting development is at last the publishing of Tony’s book Left In The Dark. I can’t recommend this book enough. Go and buy it now and don’t put it down until you have read it all the way through (ok, you can have a break to have a nice raw snack and go to the loo;-).
