As a small aside, staying awake for more than a day or two can also trigger a manic episode in in people who are bipolar.
Actually, that is not a small aside, but an important point!
Every LGAT Guru, like James Ray, and all the way back to Werner Erhard...they know all about how to induce manic episodes in people. They do that 100% on purpose. That is a fact.
And you don't have to be bipolar, or have any history.
Why do the LGAT Guru's do this?
Because what is a manic episode? There are many kinds, and some are less severe than others.
But the LGAT Guru's push people into the manic area, as that is when they lose their judgement, and do crazy things, like put tens of thousands on theirt credit cards for more seminars, and buy EVERYTHING pitched at them, and sign contracts for more seminars.
Its like a gambling addict in Vegas betting the farm. They lose it. (Vegas know this too, as that is why its 24/7, they all know it).
James Ray deliberately tries to induce manic symptoms, or mania in people. Just look at those manic photos in this thread.

Its 100% intentional. James Ray learned that from Tony Robbins 'Peak State' and many others.
They want to induce the "unrestrained buying sprees" aspect.
That is a fact. That is not speculation. Its very carefully planned out, and has been done for decades.
You don't need any history of bipolar or any mental illness, to get flipped into this manic or hypomanic mental state.
Three or more of the following symptoms must be present:
- Excessive involvement in pleasurable activities that have a high potential for painful consequences (e.g., engaging in unrestrained buying sprees, sexual indiscretions, or foolish business investments)
- Decreased need for sleep (e.g., one feels rested after only 3 hours of sleep)
- Inflated self-esteem or grandiosity
- Increase in goal-directed activity (either socially, at work or school, or sexually) or psychomotor agitation
- More talkative than usual or pressure to keep talking
- Flight of ideas or subjective experience that thoughts are racing
- Attention is easily drawn to unimportant or irrelevant items
