In the 1930s, researchers found
that repetitive light stimulation (strobing) caused brain waves to
follow and pulse at the same frequency. Actually this effect has been
known throughout history. If you have ever watched a campfire, a
flickering candle, or the dance of moonlight on the water, you have
discovered it yourself.
mind machines have lights in glasses that pulse at predetermined
frequencies, generally from 1 to 40 cycles per second (Hz). You close
your eyes and get a strobe effect that can create colors and patterns
in your mind, as well as different states of awareness, attention,
relaxation, creativity, and receptivity to information.
Does it work? Absolutely. Much
research has proven the reality of entrainment and countless reports
from happy users testifies to the life-changing results you can
expect. Want a quick power nap in the middle of a stressful
day or a boost to your productivity? Try our L/S Voyager galaxy for a
week or so and you'll become a believer!
Mind machine glasses use LEDs to
create a safe cool light strobe effect, turning on and off sharply
enough to cause the desired response in the brain.
By varying the phasing between
the left and right eyes, we produce a number of results. When the left
and right LEDs turn on and off at the same time, a focused state useful
for concentrating and analysis results. Pulsing them alternately left
and right causes a diffuse awareness, more creative and receptive. In
addition, varying the pulsed sound from ear to ear offers six possible
modes of stimulation.
The L/S systems have
pre-programmed sequences of pulsed lights and sounds that typically
start fast, then slow to the target frequency, and speed up at the end
to bring you "back" to normal waking consciousness. The entrainment
mechanism is both visual and aural.
Use of special relaxation music CDs can enhance any of the Voyager
Galaxy programs. Pleasant sounds are much more enjoyable and relaxing
than one-note beeps or tones, such as those used by other machines.
In order to understand the effect
of pulsed light and sound (L/S), you have to try a system at
home. Only then can you decide if this technology can help
you achieve your goals.
