I had been attending a conference in Los Angeles, when I encountered an old cowboy in the hotel bar. We started talking about the Perkl-Light. It was clear that he was totally hostile to the notion that there could be any validity to my beloved product.
At the same time, his body was full of old injuries - the after effects of falling off of bulls and such during his twenties. He could not raise his right arm above shoulder height.
"OK, I'm going to let you work on me, but when it doesn't work, I am going to TELL YOU!" It was clear that he did not expect any helpful results, and was relishing the opportunity to put me in my place, upon what he thought would be the unsuccessful conclusion of my efforts.
I worked on him intuitively for about 25 minutes. When I was done, he raised his arm over his head - something he had not been able to do in decades.
He got this look on his face like I imagine you would have if a space ship full of aliens landed in the front yard. Utter disbelief! He kept leaving and coming back, over and over. It was about 45 minutes before the guy could form a complete sentence.
You would think that he'd be very interested in getting a Perkl-Light for himself, but no. I never saw or heard from him again. There is an interesting lesson about human nature here: this old cowboy would rather have his aches and pains, than to challenge his view of what is and is not possible.
This is not the only time something like this has happened. Funny creatures we are.
