I'm sure I'm being overly cynical here, but I can't help wondering if the people who visit Lumosity to engage in Brain Training through the Science of Neuroplasticity aren't all going to end up drinking fruity liquid out of the same cauldron in some South American jungle a few years down the road.
I mean, am I the only person out there who thinks this has "cult" written all over it? There's no suggestion in these ads that anything is being sold. Just train your brain at Lumosity.com, for "free." Well, sorry, but I'm way too bitter and suspicious to believe that ANYTHING is offered for "free." So what's the price? Subliminal "buy this from companies sponsoring this site" messages implanted in your brain, courtesy the Science of Neuroplasticity?
And BTW, the look this woman gives us at the end, while cartoon lines seem to sprout out of her head-- yeah, this really makes me want to try this out, Lumosity. Anyone up for 23andMe?
