MONQ: Let’s Start at the Beginning

MONQ_ Let's Start at the Beginning

MONQ started with an idea:
Wouldn’t it be nice to do something positive for the world, merging new technology and ancient knowledge?
What if it were possible to merge science and style to allow everyone to discover the benefits of ancient aromatherapy?

Surgery – it couldn’t be further away from the ephemeral field of aromas. And yet that is exactly what I, Eric Fishman, MD, the founder of MONQ, did for decades. Then, suddenly, it dawned on me that there are ways of improving people’s experiences of the world without steel, but rather with natural compounds.  The same molecules that have grown on this earth since ancient times, and were used by generations of our ancestors who didn’t have any of today’s medical technology.

Having always been philosophically inclined, I named my company MONQ, which can stand for “Modifying One’s Natural Qualia”, or “Modified Observation of Natural Qualia” in both cases with the emphasis on the Q.

As you explore our website you will discover what the word Qualia means. Take some time to read our other blog posts and learn about the various MONQ blends and how your personality affects your blend preference. Maybe you’ll even begin to contemplate the meaning of your existence on this planet. We hope that you will soon realize the importance of Qualia in your life. Finally, we hope you will embark on your personal MONQ journey to “Improve Your Qualia of Life™”.

What Is the Purpose of an ASMR Experience?

ASMR is a new term for an age-old phenomenon. It stands for the autonomous sensory meridian response, although most people are more likely to think of the experience as “brain tingles.” If you are lucky enough to be able to experience ASMR, then you will instantly understand those phrases.
