Sleep Learning ..Does It Really work ?
« on: 05/08/2009 12:55:17 »
Dearest TNS Peeps Of Extraordinary Knowledge Benevolence,

Is there any proof that sleep learning ie: listenting to language courses or any kind of lecture stuff, actually works ?

I think this chappy might have got the wrong end of the stick :

I am baffled that you, of all people are asking this question. I doubt you sleep enough to soak up any sleeping knowledge. You would have to have the sun readers version that just gave you quick bitesized pieces of info. I don't think it works though. My brother used to go to sleep listening to Jasper Carrot tapes. It didn't make him funny.

My mother did some tapes like this for ceasing smoking and they helped but did not completely discharge the erge.. She had some sucesses but with other things less.

With her cancer she spent a lot of time going to sleep listening to Bernie Seagull talking about inner healing relaxation and all those lovely subliminal messages... She had success with that as far as dealing wit pain etc.. I am not sure exactly weather it would make you smart..

Indeed. It appears to have had the opposite effect on our lovely forum member Mr Paul.  [;D]

Everybody's happy nowadays in this Brave New World, don't you agree?

Did it help him to fill out his insurance claim forms :)
Science is continually evolving. Nothing is set in stone. Question everything and everyone. Always consider vested interests as a reason for miss-direction. But most of all explore and find answers that you are comfortable with
