TechnoTutor: A Front for Desteni?

[see also Techno Tutor & Desteni, June, 2013] 

In a recent post at the Muertos Blog, investigation and research on Desteni business venture, Eqafe, shows how it functions as affiliate marketing... Muertos writes:

The first of Desteni’s new ventures is a website called eqafe.com. This is an online “bookstore” where the Destonians are selling “Self-Perfection Books, Audio & Music.” The site looks like sort of a half-assed Amazon or Barnes & Noble, where you click on and see “book” covers featuring serious-looking faces of “authors” hawking their titles. The titles are things like Journey Into the Afterlife and The One System that Rules us All. There are also a lot of titles about reptilians. One of the first things I noticed about Desteni was that most of them believe in conspiracy theories involving reptilians, similar to (though not exactly like) the anti-Semitic cosmology promoted by British conspiracy loon David Icke.
However, once you begin to click on these titles, the Eqafe.com business model becomes more suspect. For instance, click on a title at random—let’s say, Reptilians—The Relationship Between Sex, Intelligence and Religion. First of all, no author is given for this work. A tiny little icon in the upper right corner tells you that this is not actually a book, but an MP3. The price? €9.99. At today’s exchange rate that’s $12.53. Seems a little pricey for an audio file, doesn’t it?
It gets worse. The summary page, which contains a lot of Desteni psychobabble, lists no fewer than 57 other titles in the “Reptilians” series! And they’re all €9.99. Thus, if you wanted to investigate the depth and breadth of the “Reptilians” series, all 58 of them, it would cost you €579, or about $726. That’s right—over $700 for a bunch of MP3s about how imaginary reptilians have supposedly manipulated human history.

Information recently surfaced at the Cult Education Forum on another of the latest Desteni ventures called TechnoTutor. It's a software programme originally available at Desteni-Universe for free in 2008 and now sold by Cameron Cope and other Destonians affiliated with a company named Perfect Mind Technologies for €2,490. Muertos continues:

Where did I find this information on Techno Tutor? On this site, New Earth Publishing, a European website selling various things…including Techno Tutor. How much does this product cost? €2,490. At today’s exchange rate, that’s $3,123.
I want to stress that this is a circumstantial case that Techno Tutor may be a Desteni front, not a conclusive case. I could be wrong. If I am wrong, correct me. Let’s hear what Techno Tutor really is and really does, in the form of verifiable testimonials from parents—not affiliated in any way with Desteni—who purchased this product for $3100+ and feel satisfied that it directly improved their child’s school performance. I would also like to hear about whether Techno Tutor is in fact the “Vocabulary Builder” or “Vocabulary Purifier” allegedly invented by Ferdi Poolman, and if his issues regarding ownership and representation of the software have been resolved to his satisfaction. I believe, given the issues that have been raised about Desteni and its leader Bernard Poolman, it’s entirely justifiable to ask reasonable questions about the relationship of this Techno Tutor program to Desteni and why high-commitment Desteni cult members are the driving forces behind its marketing.

I bought this program package in Ontario from a distributor and I haven't heard any such association or anything mentioned about this Destiny group. I simply purchased the program for my daughter and they have been learning words and improving their results with their daily spelling lists noticeably for the past month.

What I was told by our sales distributor was that the system works by imprinting the structure of the word into the long term memory...not sure if thats the exact science but its seems to be working very well for my daughter so far.

I am going to start to use the program as well to fix my own reading blocks.....as soon as I can find the time!

Techno Tutor is deliberately sold separately from Desteni in order not to put people off. This is apparent from Cameron Cope's posts at the Cult Education Forum some years ago when he specifically stated he did not want his business, known at the time as 'Desteni Education' and selling the same or similar software as Techno Tutor, to be associated with the image of Desteni as a cult.

All salespersons for Techno Tutor are members of Desteni. This can be checked by following the relevant links in the above article.

How a person does one thing is how they do everything

"It is my intention to reach as high level with GIN and present the Desteni materials to Kevin and the council as I know they will be receptive and be open to present it to the GIN community. I believe that the materials in GIN sets the ground work for Desteni"

There may be other Techno Tutor salespersons / members of Desteni involved in GIN (Global Information Network) but it seems Avery Williams and Valentin Rozman are the two main Destonians involved.

GIN is an outright SCAM and has been exposed as such at the excellent Whirled Musings blog -- http://cosmicconnie.blogspot.com and at http://gintruth.com/gnt/wpver and numerous other sites.

Correction: many but not all salespersons of Techno Tutor are members of Desteni. However, the evidence at LinkedIn suggests that the business is a Desteni venture because the company that runs it, Perfect Mind Technologies, is owned and managed solely by members of Desteni.
