Sounds that do not exist


Let's listen to a tape of Sacred Music - Tibetan monks and  Gregorian chant. If you listen, you can hear the voices merge to form a single pulsating tone.

This is one of the most interesting effects inherent to some musical instruments and choir people singing about in the same key - education beats. When the voices or instruments converge in unison, beating slow, and when to disagree - is accelerating.

Probably, this effect would have remained only in the interests of musicians, if not a researcher Robert Monroe . He realized that in spite of the well-known in the scientific world beat effect, no one has studied their effects on the human condition when listening through stereo headphones. Monroe discovered that while listening to the sounds of nearby frequencies to separate channels (left and right), one feels the so-called binaural beats or binaural beats.

For example, when one ear hears a pure tone with a frequency of 330 cycles per second, and the other - a pure tone with a frequency of 335 vibrations per second, the hemispheres of the human brain start working together, and as a result he "hears" the beat with a frequency of 335 - 330 = 5 variations in the second, but it's not real external sound, and the "Phantom." He is born in the brain only when coupled electromagnetic waves coming from the two sides of the brain working in sync.

"I always liked to ask and to learn something new. However, even before entering high school, I never got the pleasure of training and did not have much success in it. There was a time when I was on the verge of academic failure, even when given satisfactory marks easily. And this despite the fact that as a child I have been called the smartest kid who, in theory, have to learn to perfect. The reason for my failures adults, as always, felt a lack of diligence. I, disappointing them, more despair himself.

As an adult, I went to college, which also did not shine. When I filled up the exam, I re-take it as long as I did not get the required mark. By doing the same in high school, I realized that I needed a new strategy, because the ability to endlessly repeat examinations are no longer there. I could not work so hard for such a mediocre results, so with all the force of his despair rushed in search of this new strategy.

Luckily, I found it - I was able to overcome his "inability" to learning through binaural beats and dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) - component contained in seafood.

As a result, academic Sisyphean task turned into an exquisite entertainment, which led to a perfect mark and the transformation of me as a person. I felt as if released from a life sentence. "

This entry begins one of his articles Richard Kennerley - American scientist who studied the effect on the mental capacity of man listening to specific combinations of sound vibrations, called binaural beats.

Thus, one of the most effective ways to organize bioelectrical oscillations of the brain (and associated psychophysiological conditions), while providing a high synchronization of both hemispheres are binaural beats. What happens in the brain when a person "hears" the sounds.

In the 50 years was the development of a method of electroencephalography (EEG), allows you to record and study the bioelectric potentials of the brain. It was also found that the frequency of the oscillations of the brain bioelectrical synchronization ability, under certain conditions, with different rhythmic stimuli, such as pulses in excess of a weak electric current, light flashes and audible clicks, if frequency of stimuli is within the natural range of the frequency bioelectrical brain potentials.

It is easiest to follow the brain stimuli in the frequency range 25 Hz-8, but with training, this interval can be extended to the entire range of natural frequencies of the brain.

Currently usually distinguished four main types of electrical oscillations in the brain, each of which corresponds to the frequency range and the state of consciousness in which it dominates.
