And how do you know any of this is really happening?

>Yes the choroid plexus. Its like if you put a glass half full of water
>upside down on a smooth flat surface you can pick it up without the
>water coming out. The tiniest little pressure anywhere moves CSF.
>Pulsatile pressure comes to mind. I get this started by tuning into the
>waves in my brain and with skillful timing somehow building power in
>those waves along with serious frowning by squeezing my eyeballs real
>hard. It is difficult to get started but once I do get it moving/find
>the pattern of movement it is much easier and is like a swing where
>small pushes on the person on the swing result in larger and larger
>movement - up to a point. When it is in full swing, I actually wait for
>it to hit bottom of my spine - it actually sends up a throb of some sort
>and at that point I start pulling it back upward having a noticible
>change in consciousness between going down and up. Like something set in
>motion doesn't suddenly come to a stop, it seems to go past the brain
>and return downward again at a certain point - again with a noticible
>change in consciousness. This whole process goes on for 30-60 minutes.
>One cycle taking 3-5 minutes depending on how skillful I am. Starting
>out it takes longer because I am clumsier.
>I know how weird all this sounds but from my point of view, all that
>remains is proving it. I don't know how this could be done - and by
>doing it if there is any known medical value. I can tell you that the
>whole activity is extremely pleasant for me and when I stop doing it my
>brain is very clear like I just woke up again. I was struck by the fact
>that the optic nerves cross at the optic chaisma in the vicinity of the
>pituitary gland. Somehow I am using my eye sockets - squishing them - to
>get a pumping action going on CSF. The beating action of cilia like a
>field of wheat in the wind in the chorid plexus? and other places is
>what normally moves CSF I believe - its been awhile since I looked at
>this. Is it possible the beating of cilia is the frequency of beta/alpha
>waves in the brain? The que I get for putting pressure on my eyeballs is
>from theses waves. Skillful timing of the waves makes this work. I live
>by NIH in Washington DC.
>But I didn't really see anything on the web about them for me to show I
>can do this. :)
