subconscious, the seat
the slowest, but highest amplitude brainwaves. Delta waves begin to appear in
stage 3 sleep, but by stage 4 nearly all spectral activity is dominated by
delta waves. Stage 3 sleep is defined as having less than 50% delta wave
activity, while stage 4 sleep has more than 50% delta wave activity. These
stages have recently been combined and are now collectively referred to as
stage N3 slow-wave sleep. During N3 SWS, delta waves account for 20% or more.
Delta waves occur in all mammals, and potentially all animals as
Most commonly associated with deep restorative sleep, certain
frequencies in the Delta range also trigger the release of Human Growth Hormone

Theta wave (4 -7.5 Hz) The
Theta wave is of the 'waking'
in lucid dreaming.
Theta-frequency is manifested during some short term
memory tasks. Studies suggest that Theta waves reflect the "on-line" state of
the hippocampus; one of readiness to process incoming signals. A large body of
evidence indicates that theta rhythm is likely involved in spatial learning and
navigation. Theta rhythms may function to separate periods of encoding of
current sensory stimuli and retrieval of episodic memory cued by current
stimuli so as to avoid interference that would occur if encoding and retrieval

Alpha waves are
present at different stages of the wake-sleep cycle. The most widely researched
is during the relaxed mental state, where the subject is at rest with eyes
closed, but is not tired or asleep. Waking alpha activity is centered in the
occipital lobe. Alpha wave activity also occurs during REM sleep. As opposed to
the awake form of alpha activity, this form is located in a frontal-central
location in the brain.
Alpha waves arise from
synchronous and coherent (in phase/constructive) electrical activity of
thalamic pacemaker cells in humans.
This wave begins appearing at around
four months, and is initially a frequency of 4 waves per second.

activity spreads across the brain in an anterior-posterior gradient.
When you are truly relaxed, your brain activity slows from the rapid
thought patterns of Beta
into the more gentle waves of Alpha. Your awareness expands. Fresh creative
energy begins to flow. Fears vanish. You experience a liberating sense of peace
and well-being. The gateway, the entry point that leads into deeper states of

movement or an intent to move (during the performance of contralateral motor

waves are split into three sections: Low Beta Waves (12.5-16 Hz, "Beta 1
power"); Beta Waves (16.5-20 Hz, "Beta 2 power"); and High Beta Waves (20.5-28
Hz, "Beta 3 power"). Beta states are the states associated with normal waking
consciousness. Low amplitude beta waves with multiple and varying frequencies
are often associated with active, busy, or anxious thinking and active
concentration. Bursts of beta activity are associated with a strengthening of
sensory feedback in static motor control and reduced when there is movement
change. Beta activity is increased when movement has to be resisted or

Gamma wave - (above 30
Hz) Gamma waves are associated with bursts of insight,
dissociate states of
consciousness, epiphanous contentment and high-level information
processing. There are many methods the various cultures of humanity has
discovered over human history to help the acolyte or initiate into his or her
first mystical experience of Gamma wave inducment which include:
fasting; the use of
reflection; immersion in
nature; trance inducment;
prolonged strenuous physical
activities like swimming the English Channel or running an Iron Man
marathon. Be careful with Gamma wave inducement as Gamma wave inducement

on Tibetan Buddhist monks have shown a correlation between transcendental
mental states and gamma waves. What meditation masters have in common is the
ability to put the brain into a state in which it is maximally sensitive. When
the monks were told to generate an objective feeling of compassion during
meditation, their brain activity began to fire in a rhythmic, coherent manner,
suggesting neuronal structures were firing in harmony.
Meditation is known to have a number of health benefits:
stress reduction, mood elevation, and increased life expectancy of the mind and
its cognitive functions.
Global brain cohesion rarely tips over into the

Even higher than gamma is the hypergamma
range, which is over 100 Hz; and above that is the mythical lambda state, over

awareness of all things from the beginning of time to the end of

new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not
occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a perfect
world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
