MAGIC NUMBER: 66

After discussing with another musician today. I have set upon the challenge/experiment of practising first thing every morning for the next 66 days to formulate a habit…… what this means is that the practise formation will take my brain wave state from beta wave 13-38 hz to alpha 8-13 hz which only really occurs once an activity becomes more effortless and in particular the mastery of a musical instrument.

So I am looking to make actually physical changes in my brain by transferring the skill into cognitive hardware thus strengthening the synaptic connections and also giving myself a dopamine kick for the success……

Here is a bit of Bach Fuga XII…………the art of “sinking new data below the levels of consciousness across a thick jungle of connections in the brain”. – David Eagleman
