SOLUTIONS TO: (Sanchin) KATA: A Puzzling Experiment

30 Dec

Some weeks ago, I had posted an experiment concerning my hypothesis that kata can act as a mechanism to enhance brain function. The experiment was designed by Dr. Alan Snyder of the Center For The Mind in Sydney, Australia. The protocol of Dr. Snyder’s experiment used puzzle solving to test the effects of electric stimulation on specific centers of the brain. Using Dr. Snyder’s experiment as a basis, I modified the experiment to replace the external electronic with deep, spiritual kata practice. The protocol of the experiment may be found by clicking the following convenient link:

As promised, here are the solutions to the four puzzles (The matchstick to e moved to correct each equation is shown in red).


Until the next submission, I remain,
