This sequence preview looks definitely promising...

...and, to a noob (that is, a me in the grip of Mind Projection Fallacy) screams "WEIRD SELF-HELP CULT" in huge neon letters. Anyone else notice this?

To a first approximation all non trivial advice on messing with the workings of your own head sounds weird; and self-help has a bad reputation because most of the people who consume it are losers, not winners looking to win harder. Also, honestly there are weirder, cultier things on the site, anti-deathism for one.
