1. ### What would you do here?

Sure miss Freddy.
2. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

I messed with it but results were a mixed bag. Forcing myself to align to them as close as possible did not necessarily result in pocketing balls. That is probably because when you line up the lasers, it’s not the same visual lines you find when looking at them by parallax. And yes they are 2D...
3. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

This is just an observation I made at the table. Interesting nonetheless. I don't know if this means anything, but I thought I'd share. I setup this specific shot at the table, it is a 30I to the upper right corner pocket. For illustration purposes I drew the CB as a double-vision ball as one...
4. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

Confident and strong does not make correct. We see two different objects in close (and far) proximity when looking at an object. He doesn't understand that.
5. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

As I just explained a few posts back, when you focus on the OB you see two separate cue balls in the foreground. This can be easily tested by closing one eye at a time and taking notice. So no, it's not that cut and dry. Your eyes work together to focus on a specific place at any one time. Other...
6. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

Pictures are a 2D perspective. You’ll never get past that it seems.
7. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

Sorry, but your arguments don't change anything. You are working with incomplete data. Your rule definition isn't taking into consideration that perception is a visual concept that doesn't fall within the math constraints of rulers and 2D lines. We have two eyes viewing onto the surface with two...
8. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

Simple protractor/ruler/laser logic would suggest everything is always the same. But at the table, when lining up AL and SL just as carefully and precisely as possible, the stepped center ends on the NISL to a pocket. So clearly the shot picture on the surface of the table affects our...

Go ahead and sneer, meanwhile I'm pocketing balls better than I ever could with PIITH guessing aiming.
10. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

It's not nearly as complicated as it sounds. We are dissecting everything in this thread for the sake of... science? But in reality all you do is follow simple instructions: put your eyes at an offset to see AL/SL, then look at CCB, then as Hal would say, whack it :)
11. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

OK so science and logic dictate that if the CB/OB are the same distance apart, you would get the same physical alignment from anywhere. That is assuming your eyes are on the AL/SL like lasers on 2D lines drawn from the CB to the OB. But in reality that isn’t how it works. While aligning to the...
12. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

The uniqueness of the shot starts at AL/SL. Not NISL. I’ve tried to point this out numerous times over many videos and threads of discussion over years. When I align to AL/SL for a given shot, then move the orientation of the balls on the table and again align to AL/SL, I can often tell the...
13. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

Yes exactly!! I focus on the fast. Eating healthier and exercise is bonus!
14. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

I checked the definition. I was right ;)
15. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

A diet is simply a way of eating. When you intermittently fast, the idea is behind a longer period of zero calorie intake. This makes calorie reduction much easier than some crash diet. Sure you can still eat terribly while fasting and not lose weight. But it gives you a much better chance of...
16. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

If you intermittently fast it has a built in diet, as you naturally eat less calories and cravings dissipate. It also gives your body a chance to go into ketosis to burn fat and rid toxins.
17. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

I am intermittent fasting. Trying to get back to college weight. Down 15 after one month.
18. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

I probably glance up at the OB especially in tougher shots to check things over, but I look at CCB last. By check things over, I mean check that NISL connection to OB looks correct. If it’s obviously incorrect I would stand up and start over. That would happen if say, I chose the wrong pivot...
19. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

I’m looking at the CCB. During instruction mode I do cycle between AL/SL, stepping and CCB. Stan said recently his attention to the OB is nothing more than a “gaze”. FWIW.
20. ### A real CTE shot for you to try.

Just FYI Stan makes a training ball that accompanies the book. So we are not working with made up adjustments for the AL and SL. They are hard lines on the OB when using the trainer.
