Chapter Twelve: Image Streaming

Image Streaming

Dr. Win Winger developed the concept of image streaming which is explained in
depth in his Project Renaissance on www.winwenger.com.

Image streaming focuses on the individual’s ability to obtain answers to questions,
enhance his awareness and increase his intelligence quotient. We don’t think he would go as
far as guarantee you a reserved seat in the Mensa Society or in the ten other high IQ societies
like Prometheus, Tops and the Giga. Dr. Wenger makes no such claims; his mission is to help
us sharpen our awareness and thinking abilities, by experiencing a marked improvement in the
way we reason out and describe objects around us. Nor does he promise that we would
develop into another Einstein or Socrates, although he refers to these two great thinkers
frequently in his discussions.

Dr. Wenger does say, however, that we should engage in image streaming and use the
10/10 test.


“If, after at least 10 minutes per day of Image-Streaming for at least ten days, you
don't find your life positively and miraculously transformed, then ignore everything
we've said and do something else instead. But if you do find Socratic and other
miracles happening in your life, please do continue the practice of Image-Streaming:
no matter how good things become, they can become even better for you! — Fair
test?”[62]

Theory of Image Streaming


The key phrase here is “visual image.” We may tend to think of image streaming as
echoing that of visualization. Our reading of Dr. Wenger’s theory, however, does lead us to
think that while it may include visualization elements, image streaming goes beyond that. In
fact the original intention was to refine visualization skills, but people have reported
experienced a higher degree of creativity and intelligence.


The images we see in our daily life carry with them essential ideas and insights from
those ideas. The concept of day dreaming is a vital component of Dr. Wenger’s theory,
pointing out that Einstein's theory of relativity came about as a result of his day dreaming.

By verbalizing these images that come within our vision and consciousness and
describing them aloud, these images become sharper and clearer in our mind. The mere act of
observing produces what Wenger calls a feedback mechanism that results in producing more
imagery.


The role of image streaming is to form a connection between a person’s verbal and
thinking abilities, therefore increasing his intelligence. How this is achieved is not yet clear.
The evidence at best is anecdotal.


While Wenger’s goal is not to transform us into a great thinker deserving of the Nobel,
he does describe image streaming as a process that combines the Einstein method of day
dreaming and the Socratic method of repeated questioning. These two methods make it
possible for individuals to acquire more mental imagery skills that bond our visual and
thinking capacities together.

Image Streaming: Procedure


Detailed instructions on how to image stream are available on Dr. Wenger’s web site,
www.winwenger.com; we will cover the highlights of the procedure here.


The idea of talking to ourselves may seem funny, but the idea is to think aloud; more
specifically, describe aloud what we see. Wenger suggests talking to a hand-held tape
recorder or using a dictation machine. What’s even better, he says, is to engage a friend or
family member to listen to you either live or by phone. The important point here, we believe,
is to get this friend to buy in the idea, so he does not end up trying to suppress a giggle every
now and then (tall order).
