Brainwave Entrancement is trickery of the mind by using two pitches of frequency on the two channels of headphones to emulate the sense of a third lower, sub-40hz frequency as the differential between the previous two. In theory this should cause the listener to sync with the frequency differential and “entrance” portions of their bio-computer to it. This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove. Gerald Oster, published “Auditory Beats in the Brain” in a 1973 issue of Scientific America. Robert Monroe later began experimenting with this method, founding the Monroe Institute in 1978. The first Hemi-sync audio was released in 1975. It is also of interest to note that lightwaves may also be a source of entrancement as in the case of the Dreammachine, Led goggles, or other stroboscopic applications.
|Frequency range||Name||Usually associated with:|
|>40 Hz||Gamma waves||Higher mental activity, including perception, problem solving, fear, and consciousness|
|13â€“40 Hz||Beta waves||Active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration, arousal, cognition|
|7â€“13 Hz||Alpha waves||Relaxation (while awake), pre-sleep and pre-wake drowsiness|
|4â€“7 Hz||Theta waves||Dreams, deep meditation, REM sleep|
|< 4 Hz||Delta waves||Deep dreamless sleep, loss of body awareness|
(The precise boundaries between ranges vary among definitions, and there is no universally accepted standardà¥¤)
