013 – The Two Millimeter Technique


013 – The Two Millimeter Technique

Welcome to episode 13 of The Hollow Tube podcast with Dr. Michael Bays and Dr. Patrick Bays. On today’s show, we kick things off with Patrick’s excitement about the Elio three wheeled vehicle. This would be the perfect vehicle for a commuter in Seattle because it is enclosed and offers protection from the rain, and one axle three wheeled vehicles get to board the ferry first. We also discuss using a car as a makeshift office and benefits of having Wi-Fi and the pros and cons of crowdsourcing.

We then discuss the new Game of Thrones episode and a possible spoiler about Sam. We talk about the benefits of high-intensity interval training or HIIT workouts, and how they can benefit mitochondrial and skeletal muscle growth. Especially, as we age. We briefly discuss how MDMA may be recategorized to become a legal way to treat PTSD and the categories of drugs. Then we move on to movies that were fun or inspirational, and how changing your physical body can change your emotions and mood.

We also discuss streaks and the tension that can be created by the process. Marketers use many tricks to get us to buy things that we don’t necessarily need. We need to be on guard for possible tricks and manipulation. We talk about calming and simplifying our minds. We also discuss intuition and listening to our intuition. Patrick shares an experience where he was able to step outside of himself, and Michael shares a story from South America where he made a decision based on his intuition and ended up not getting robbed. We talk about this and listening to and using the subtle cues in life, quieting our minds and more.
