The Alerter is an REG-based device that runs in the background, and can alert you to relevant or
meaningful moments in your day. It is small enough to be carried on a keychain or in a purse, and
can alert you by beeping or vibrating.
How It Works
The basic theory behind the Alerter, is that you pick a context for when the device should go off,
and your subconscious mind stays in touch with it vis-à-vis the process that allows people to
influence an REG. When significant moments happen in context, or when a deeper part of you decides
that you should be kept aware of something, your mind can influence the behavior of the Alerter, which
signals your consciousness to pay attention.
For example, if you were a writer, you might be looking for inspiration for your next novel. You can
use the alerter as a tool for honing your creativity by intending that it goes off at times that will
alert you to something relevant for your project. In some cases, the alert will be "random" and simply
enhance your creativity by sending your mind off in a new direction. In other cases, you will actually be
causing the alert to happen from a deeper level – helping to make your conscious mind aware of something
that you might have otherwise missed.
Other Example Uses
Applications for the Alerter are really limited by your own imagination. Most uses that involve
contextualized intent should be fine. Users generally report remarkable synchronicities and useful
timing of notifications.
Lucid Dreaming: The Alerter can be useful for stimulating lucid dreams. A common technique for
building a connection between the conscious and subconscious mind is to ask yourself "am I dreaming?"
at various times throughout the day with the hopes that you will acquire this habit and begin to use
it in dreaming. The difficulty that most people have with this technique is that they forget to ask
themselves, or only ask when they are cued by the environment. The alerter fixes this – you need only
ask yourself the question when it beeps, and you will develop a habit in no time.
Training States of Mind: You may want to remind yourself to keep a positive state of mind, or
to focus on a particular idea or concept throughout your life. By associating that intention or state
of mind with the alerts, you will help the engrain that tendency in your mind.
Self-Monitoring: In self-exploration, you may wish to get a deeper sense of what your mind is
thinking about on a daily basis. Are you really being positive? What ideas emerge most in your mind?
By tracking what you think when the alerter alerts you, you can gain deeper insight into yourself and
your thoughts, changing or enhancing them as necessary.
Coincidence: Perhaps you're interested in meeting significant people, or you want to keep your
eyes open for events in your environment. The alerter can help you, as your intention and deeper
awareness may help it to go off at times where you should pay particular attention to the people or
circumstances around you.
