The entrainment process of Sleep Induction is different from Power Nap in that it starts at beta and high alpha rhythms, then slowly entrains you into delta rhythms over the course of an hour. For this reason, it is played only once because a beta rhythm can wake you up again.
You can learn more about different types of neural patterns at Binaural harmonics. The point this article does not touch upon are golden ratio harmonics. The golden ratio is a key signature in nature; it is found everywhere.
The ratio is derived geometrically from a simple 1:2 rectangle wherein a diagnonal line drawn through the center between opposite corners forms the hypotenuse of two right triangles. The combination of (squareroot(hypotenuse) + adjacent) / opposite = phi, or the golden ratio:
phi = (sqr(5) + 1)/2 = 1.618…
Progressions in nature follow a sequential derivation of the phi ratio. The following is a sequence starting from 1:
1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55,… N(i) = N(i-1) + N(i-2)
This natural sequence was discovered by a guy who’s name wasn’t exactly Fibonacci, but close enough. Like the sequence, his name is a derivation. As you see, each number in the sequence is the addition of the two preceding numbers.
All Progressions in nature follow this sequence. The larger we get in the sequence, the closer we get to the actual golden ratio per the formula:
phi ~ N(i) / N(i-1), example: 55/34~1.6176
The sequence can change by steps and skips – just like music, but we can always derive the golden ratio from a Fibonacci Sequence.
Our neural patterns are based in the golden ratio. The reason that experience of nature helps us relax and reflect is that it helps us to center ourselves around the golden ratio. The ambience in rain, ocean, waterfall, and wind, the expressiveness of flowers and trees, even animals like birds are all based in the golden ratio.
Most of Nature is a reflection of our stable, life positive mind patterns that make us feel good and worthy to be alive. When we contemplate nature, whether outside or inside of ourselves, we latch onto important ideas that guide us in our lives.
ThunderStorm: Sleep Induction uses the looming sounds of thunder with rain and wind to increase cortical activity. Scientists at the Universities of Glasgow, UK, and Lausanne, Switzerland, have discovered that even before we are consciously aware of them, such looming sounds excite the low-level visual cortex, boosting visual perception. (Physorg)
Normally, we don’t associate any kind of looming sounds with relaxation like a car or footsteps coming from behind. Normally, those sounds stimulate a heightened response on every level.
For those of us raised on thunderstorms, the looming thunder strikes are a different story. Since lightning and thunder are part of nature, they work according to the golden ratio. As Children, we were frightened at first, but we came to trust thunderstorms (as long as the lightning didn’t hit too close). For those of us raised on thunderstorms, they actually bring us peace and comfort because we are intuitively able to predict their patterns. Like a “stormy” person who you’ve come to know and appreciate, his patterns are predictable, so you come to rely upon them.
The timing and intensities of ThunderStorm: Sleep Induction are based on golden ratio patterns, actual patterns in nature. The only one better is the real thing, but if you don’t always have the real thing, ThunderStorm: Sleep Induction, is next best to the real thing.
Who’s not getting enough sleep?
There’s a very interesting article at Physorg that tells the tale: Getting Enough Sleep? They Aren’t in West Virginia (extract):
“..We didn’t ask ‘Why didn’t you get enough rest or sleep?’” said Lela McKnight-Eily, an epidemiologist for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who led the study.
But experts noted several possible explanations: West Virginia ranks at or near the bottom of the nation in several important measurements of health, including obesity, smoking, heart disease and the proportion of adults with disabilities. Studies have increasingly found sleeping problems in people with certain health problems, including obesity.
“You would expect to see poorer sleep within a chronically diseased population,” noted Darrel Drobnich of the National Sleep Foundation, a nonprofit advocacy and research organization.
Some experts believe sleep-deprived people are more inclined to eat fatty foods during the day.
“There’s growing evidence sleep deprivation promotes obesity,” said Dr. Ronald Chervin, a University of Michigan sleep disorders expert.
Financial stress and odd-hour work shifts can play roles in sleeplessness, too, Chervin added. He suggested those may be contributing factors in West Virginia, an economically depressed state with tens of thousands of people working in coal mining…
Socioeconomic stress is the main contributing factor to sleep deprivation. I’m sorry to hear that about West Virginia because I love those people; they’re very easy going, so who would have known?
As you can see from the Physorg article, sleep is extremely important to us on every level of our health and well being. As far as I know, I am the only one who has calculated their brainwave entrainments upon the golden ratio. The Looming sounds of the thunderstorm based on the golden ratio helps you find that place of rest and relaxation that didn’t exist before.
Most neuroscience is ballpark when it comes to neural patterns. Not HealingMindN. Why? Because you’re special. Your brainwaves are based on golden ratio patterns, therefore, the intensities are calculated according to golden ratio patterns.
Your brainwaves are also based on binaural harmonics, fourier transformations, and Schumann Resonance; there are also sync pulse and pulse positions that allow extra-dimensional perceptions. OceanScape GhostShip: Altered States takes complete advantage of all of your attributes to help you achieve an “other-worldly” experience.
OceanScape GhostShip: Altered States is coming shortly.
