Would you like to change your state of consciousness? We have an app for you - Brain Driver.
Let Brain Driver take you to a new state of consciousness in about 15 minutes.
Five states of consciousness are available:
Within our brains there are a multitude of electrical signals that travel from cell to cell and from one region to another. As these electrical signals travel, there is a rhythm that develops. When we are in idle mode with no worries, the brain may be producing alpha waves - frequencies between 8 and 12 cycles per second. Alpha waves result from an overall rhythm produced by faster signals that pass through the brain in a way that ebbs and flows at the much slower rate of 8 to 12 Hz.
Just experiencing the frequency of alpha waves leads to the production of alpha waves in the brain. One way to experience alpha rhythms is through the use of different sounds in each ear. If one hears 120 Hertz in one ear and 130 Hertz in the other ear, then the rapidly changing energies in the brain tend to oscillate at 10 Hertz.
This is the science behind binary aural beats. The interaction of the two different audible sounds, one in each ear, sets up the brain to support a happy state of consciousness that is associated with alpha brain waves.
The sound waves can also be played into the open air, where they will collide and produce the characteristic beat frequency. The problem with open air presentations of binary aural beats is finding the right place to stand in order to hear the beat frequency. This sort of problem is overcome with ear buds or headphones.
