You could actually take it a step further by using the first and second derivatives of the galvanic skin response over time and the zero crossing of the second derivative to plot out exactly when the needle is falling and rising and to what degree it is falling and rising in real-time, if you are not already doing so. Similar to those used in sub-pixel edge detection algorithms. It blows my mind that people would waste so much time trying to study the movement of an analog needle on a meter, when you can use a little mathematics and calculus to do it for you.I have to do things on a gradient. People want a needle with a pointer on the end. The simple exercise of holding a broom by the handle end and by the broom end waving it back and forth demonstrates why having a pointer on the end of the needle and expecting fast response is a futile exercise.
Many people in and out of Scientology relinquish their decisions to others whom they assign as their opinion leader. Many leaving the CofS lost DM as their opinion leader and franticly look for another. I don't get the volume of people coming here that Marty or others who are good at PR do but I mostly get people who can think for themselves.
