Super-slow waves keep your brain coordinated

When people work together, they’re literally on the same wavelength

Delta wave (0.5 - 4 Hz)

Delta is the brain wave signal of the primal animal subconscious, the seat of intuition.

They are 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 well.

Most commonly associated with deep restorative sleep, certain frequencies in the Delta range also trigger the release of Human Growth Hormone beneficial for healing and regeneration.

Drop below 0.5 Hz and a yogic state of suspended animation occurs is the mythical epsilon state. There is evidence that slow wave oscillators in the human brainstem may act as the circadian drumbeat of consciousness.

Theta wave (4 -7.5 Hz)

The Theta wave is of the 'waking' subconscious mind 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 were simultaneous.

Theta brings forward heightened receptivity, flashes of dreamlike imagery, inspiration, and your long-forgotten memories. Theta can bring you deep states of meditation. A sensation of "floating." And, because it is an expansive state, in Theta, you may feel your mind expand beyond the boundaries of your body. Theta rests directly on the threshold of your subconscious.

In Theta, we are in a waking dream, vivid imagery flashes before the mind's eye and we are receptive to information beyond our normal conscious awareness. Theta has also been identified as the gateway to learning and memory. Theta meditation increases creativity, enhances learning, reduces stress and awakens intuition and other sensory perception skills.

alpha theta border

Alpha-Theta border (7Hz - 8Hz)

The mystery of human consciousness

Signature Pattern in Hypnotized Brains

The Trippy State Between Wakefulness and Sleep

The Alpha-Theta border, from 7Hz to 8Hz, is the optimal range for visualizing intention, ego patterning and using the creative power of your own mind to consciously reprogram your thought patterns through intention. Alpha-Theta border is the state in which hypnotic suggestion takes hold, induced trance states are activated, and entrainment occurs.

Various names have been given to the Alpha-Theta border time which include lucid dreaming and astral projection. Out of body experiences occur at this extreme border of subconscious awareness and complete unconsciousness. Access to your own subconscious is at a maximum in this brain wave state. Those who have spent time walking the borderline are not easily hypnotized.

Alpha wave (7.5 -12.5 Hz)

Alpha waves operate as the bridge between the conscious mind (beta state) and the totally subconscious mind (theta state): detached critical analysis and deep relaxed physical intuition in a daydreaming type state.

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.

The mature alpha wave, at 10 waves per second, is firmly established by age 3.

Alpha oscillations occur in both REM sleep (frontal-central location) and where the subject is at rest with eyes closed (centered in the occipital lobe. There is also an alpha-delta or slow-wave (SWS) state.

This 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 consciousness.

Mythological entrainment of the subconscious occurs in the alpha state.

Mu wave (7.5 - 12.5 Hz)

Mu wave thought patterns arise from synchronous and coherent (in phase/constructive) electrical activity of large groups of neurons in the human brain. This wave activity appears to be associated with the motor cortex, and is diminished with movement or an intent to move (during the performance of contralateral motor acts), or when others are observed performing actions. The mu wave is an alpha wave like variant. Modulation of the mu rhythm is believed to reflect the electrical output of the synchronization of large portions of pyramidal neurons of the motor cortex which control the hand and arm movement when inactive. Mu rhythms can also be desynchronized by imagining actions and by passively viewing point-light biological motion.

Mu wave suppression may be a consequence of mirror neuron activity throughout the brain, and represents a higher-level integrative processing of mirror neuron activity. Mu waves may represent a high level coordination of mirror neurons.

Scientists theorize the inferior frontal gyrus is one of the main neural correlates with the mirror neuron system in humans and is often related to deficits associated with autism. The mirror neuron system may not be non-functional in individuals with autism, but simply abnormal in its development.

Beta wave (12.5 - 30 Hz)

The Beta wave is the brain wave of an awake consciousness mind.

The Beta wave state is associated with peak concentration, heightened alertness, hand eye coordination and visual acuity.

Beta 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 voluntarily suppressed.

You are wide-awake, alert. Your mind is sharp, focused. It makes connections quickly, easily and you're primed to do work that requires your full attention. In the Beta state, neurons fire abundantly, in rapid succession, helping you achieve peak performance. New ideas and solutions to problems flash like lightning into your mind.

Gamma wave - (above 30 Hz)

Gamma waves are associated with bursts of insight, ecstasy, epiphanies, mystical experiences, 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 an entheogen; physical deprevation; pain infliction; mystical reflection; immersion in nature; trance inducment; mountain climbing; 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 may create universal paradigm shifts of conceptual structure in the inductee's worldview causes strife to close family and friends due to the personality changes inherent in a total shift of worldview based on immersion in true knowledge or baptism of the spirit into the Gnostic Mysteries.

Experiments 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 high gamma range of 40 Hz.

Even higher than gamma is the hypergamma range, which is over 100 Hz; and above that is the mythical lambda state, over 200 Hz, where it is rumored that human consciousness tops out at total awareness of all things from the beginning of time to the end of history.

The slow wave oscillators of the brainstem vibrate to the resonant drumbeat of the collective consciousness.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created 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."

This web site 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.
