The main purpose of the album is to increase our concentration, creative focus, and mental acuity. The brainwave entrainment is in the storm which is in the background. The music and meditations is in the foreground and they’re all in sync together. Imagine a concert of street musicians in the city during a storm playing in sync to the thunder and background; it’s beautiful and strange at the same time, but that’s just my opinion.
Does it work for me? Of course it does. This is the self improvement tool I wish I had when I was going to school. Everyone can use it – especially kids. It works beyond expectations for me. I hope the reviewers will also be thrilled. Meanwhile, please see this expanded description that couldn’t fit at Amazon to Learn more about The Big Picture:
Psst, Hey? You wanna buzz? The Big Picture is your ticket. No need for negative side effects. No more need from caffeine and other false “pick-me-ups.” No more neuroleptic benders.
The Big Picture has everything you need to maintain concentration, increase your creative focus and encourage mental speed & acuity.
The latest, most effective neuroscience research in waking brainwave rhythms have been integrated into a city stormscape. The original music and spiritual meditations in the foreground are in sync with the storm. Imagine a bunch of wild and crazy street musicians giving concert in the middle of a city on a stormy day.
A storm is in the background this time as opposed to the previous HealingMindN
Brainwave Entrainments. Since there are about 2000 lightning storms on the planet at any given moment and we have neural activity similar to this geophysical phenomenon, we pay homage to the storm once again in “The Big Picture.”
Since this album of entrainments is oriented towards the waking state such as most mainstream music, it was a pleasure to include tunes synchronized with the storm that keep your toes tapping(1):
Thoughts into Action
Electro Rock-a-Billy World Fusion Storm increases your concentration and focus to help increase your academic performance or work productivity. “Thoughts into Action” is like an intense dose of caffeine without the harmful side effects.
Great for burning the midnite oil – The music is like interval exercise training with frantic rock-a-billy guitar taking turns with meditative heavy metal/electro-balkan fusions, so it helps you get your work done faster. In that sense, it’s also a perfect song for 20 minutes of intense exercise.
Design Beneath Disorder
New Age Trance Fusion Storm increases your creative focus for artwork, writing, reading, and brainstorming. 12 Hz high alpha rhythm session focuses the mind, but keeps you close enough to alpha to access higher states of creativity and intuition.
“Design Beneath Disorder” is true inspiration for your creative needs as choir, mantra, meditation and music all come together like an intense charismatic church service in the middle of a storm. The choir is central to “Design Beneath Disorder” with hypnotic world fusion beats and rhythms that further increase your creativity and intuition.
(On a side note: This song wrote itself. It’s a perfect song for brainstorming which is why I wanted to call this album “Brainstorm Trifecta;” that is until I finished my odyssey with “The Big Picture.”)
The Big Picture
Grand Funk-a-Fusion Acoustic Guitar Storm speeds up your brain, increases activity, and encourages brain growth. Listen during work time, play time, or rehab from sickness or injury.
“The Big Picture” tantalizes us with a world fusion of funkalicious medleys while the melodies are completely built upon one ubiquitous mantra. Strangely enough, thirty minutes goes by in very little time while listening to “The Big Picture.”
“The Big Picture” reflects neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is a non-linear function of the brain, so we need a song to reflect that. In terms of “non-linear,” think of the beginning, middle, and end of a journey, then mix it up, but you still recognize the journey.
Recent studies indicate that waking rhythms increase neuroplasticity(2) which is a function of the brain that allows new neural pathways to take over functions from older or missing neural pathways due to disease or injury.
“The Big Picture” also has a surprise, funk slapping ending which you, hopefully, will make you happy. In that sense, it’s also a perfect song for lovemaking.
Q: What kind of brainwave entrainment technology is in The Big Picture?
A: Some low alpha with a majority of high alpha and beta rhythms using pulse modulation panning. The alpha rhythms are provided in the form of Schumann Resonances which are, in turn, based upon the Golden Ratio.
Q: Who are the musicians in The Big Picture?
A: Besides myself, I’m not sure. I produced this album by mashing up samples with my own recordings. I didn’t work with anyone else, personally, for this project, but it’s quite possible you are hearing a famous artist from years ago when they sold their studio licks.
Q: Why do you include meditations within these songs?
A: We are spiritual beings who are always meditating on things. Why not meditate on good things? The meditations are on positive concepts that enhance our performance which is further engrained in our minds by the brainwave entrainment. Think of the beatnik days in the 1950’s when the stage poets were accompanied by a mean bongo player, embellish that like you crave heaven on earth, then you get The Big Picture.
Q: How do we know “waking” brainwave entrainment rhythms are effective?
A: Clinical Studies at the Department of Psychology, Goldsmiths, University of London, Lewisham Way, New Cross, London and Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, the Program in Cognitive Science, and the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, University of California, Berkeley indicate that entrainment of waking rhythms in subjects increased neural activity and neural plasticity in varying brain regions using varying modes of stimulation.
Q: What should we listen to in this album for it to be effective?
A: You don’t have to focus on anything in this album; it works best when you listen to it passively. For this album to be most effective, simply play it in the background while you go about your normal daily focused activities – which is on YOUR work.
Turn the volume on your stereo system up just enough so you can hear the rain in the background. The rest comes naturally. A stereo system is best because there are a lot of panning effects. Repeat the entrainments that you need the most.
Use caution when operating dangerous equipment while listening because this album can induce a trance state, albeit a waking trance.
Q: Who influenced your work on this album?
A: Besides the obvious neuroscience researchers, here is a short list in alphabetical order: Yehuda Berg, Kate Bush, Gregg Braden, Michael Cretu, Bob Dylan, Amy Lee Haltzer, Michael Hedges, Lenny Kravitz, Preston Nichols, Greta Rose, and Samuel Sagan. The long list is on the CD Jewel Case.
Q: Given the strange influences, what esoteric technology is on this album?
A: Golden Ratios, Kundalini Activation, and a few methods discussed by Preston Nichols in the Music of Time. I’m sure there are people who will try to pick apart this project, but it’s not only the technology or the music or the entrainment. It’s about me, you, and how we do ’cause we’re all part of The Big Picture.
Q: You have discussed remote influencing at this site in detail. What kind of remote influencing is in The Big Picture?
A: Assuming there is remote influencing in The Big Picture, it’s about the same as any other rock and roll album. As I mentioned, Preston Nichols was a great influence on this album as he discussed some of the technologies he used as an audio engineer for famous groups like the Beach Boys in “Music of Time.” I would say that The Big Picture definitely contains my thought forms, but mainly for spiritual growth and healing.
The other influence would be Gerald O’Donnell’s ARVARI Course; that is, if The Big Picture DOES contain remote influencing.
In fact, neuroscience takes a regular part in the entertainment industry. The difference in The Big Picture is that it pushes us into the light so we feel fulfilled rather than darkness and emptiness offered by certain mainstream music. In essence, The Big Picture is an excellent substitute for death metal, thrash and all the other mind control garbage that’s out there. So Please, Treat your kids this Christmas to something that will really help them: Get The Big Picture.
Thanks for your time.
