This work adduces experimental and simulated data to show that what meditation masters have in common is the ability to put the brain into a state in which it is maximally sensitive.
Often in society it goes without saying that medical and scientific studies are ahead of the mainstream curve. This, however is what sounds like an ancient science that we are just now catching up on.
40Hz. A Low Bass quality frequency, while famed for it’s place in powerful down beats in the music industry, is also very usual for reversing effects on a number of illnesses. In one study in Ontario, patients suffering from fibromyalgia say signs of improvement after listening to just 23 minutes of a 40Hz tone while sitting upright(1). In another study in Toronto, patients who suffered mild to severe Alzheimer’s where subject to a chair with speakers built in pulsing out this 40Hz tone and, after 30 minutes it was reported that patients were engaging in more thoughtful conversation and memory seemed to improve (2). Even in 2009, an article was published about an Arizona University seeing evidence of sound vibration repairing brain tissue (3)
So what is it about this particular tone?
40Hz is among the Gamma Waves (not gamma rays) frequencies ranging from 25Hz-100Hz
Experiments on Tibetan Buddhist monks have shown a correlation between transcendental mental states and gamma waves.A suggested explanation is based on the fact that the gamma is intrinsically localized. Neuroscientist Sean O’Nuallain suggests that this very existence of synchronized gamma indicates that something akin to a singularity – or, to be more prosaic, a conscious experience – is occurring(4).This work adduces experimental and simulated data to show that what meditation masters have in common is the ability to put the brain into a state in which it is maximally sensitive.
It appears as though this frequency allows us to become consciously and unconsciously more aware. And some theories provide evidence that gamma waves allow our brains to more information in more parts of our brain with less conscience energy, ranging in feats from higher intelligence, to self healing properties, to increased happiness, to even enhanced awareness through your five senses(5)
In the world of science, not enough testing has fully concluded this proposal. In fact Science has turned its focus from Gamma waves for the time being. But since when does evolution wait for science? Especially if there hasn’t been any harmful studies shown in regards to this concept? Can we really expect the world we live in to all of a sudden reveal that we can self heal and enhance ourselves through sound vibration?
