Strap yourself into the Potentializer, then rotate within an electromagnetic field to boost your brain's alpha wave output and increase your mental powers. Is this science fiction? No, it's a machine being used by certain physicians, psychiatrists, chiropractors, ministers and scientists. Some of them claim it helps subjects achieve deep relaxation and expand their learning abilities. Hutchison (The Book of Floating here maps the little-known world of ""brain machines''computerized devices, neuroelectric stimulators and microelectrodes that, by some accounts, enable their adventurous users to undo creative blocks, recall long-past experiences and attain states of euphoria or meditation. The author also investigates methods for rapid learning, focusing encyclopedic memory and recall; biofeedback and flotation tanks are scrutinized as well. Hutchison's belief that ``the time is right for machines of this sort'' may make readers wary as they wade through this startling report on a new frontier. February 19
