Recognizing the energetic aspect of the body is vital for managing wellness. Brainwave technology guides us toward a new paradigm for understanding the full dimensionality of being human, which moves healthcare a step forward in personalized treatment. Featured here are new applications, technologies, and practices that stimulate body energy, opening channels of knowledge yet to be explored.

Experience With Hypnotism

Hypnosis is a relaxed state-of-being induced by the power of suggestion from another person—or from oneself. In normal, everyday mental states, the mind is primarily informed by interaction with the external physical world. If we quiet the mind from the external reality, we are influenced by deeper communicative connections—which increase awareness and potentially facilitate activity beyond a person’s normal activity—but within a person’s ethical range of activity. In a hypnotic state, a person may be influenced by the hypnotist’s suggestion—or by the self’s suggestion for meta-programming.

Brainwave Morphing Process

Brainwave Morphing lowers predominant brainwave frequencies to alpha and theta Hz and stimulates the coherence of brainwave activity between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Qigong practice lowers brainwave frequencies to predominantly alpha and theta Hz and increases coherence between the left and right hemispheres. Combining brainwave morphing with Eastern practices, such as Qigong and meditation accelerates overall body/mind wellness, which facilitates an increased ability to self-regulate brainwave states for optimal performance, rejuvenation, and rehabilitation.

About NeuroEnergy

NeuroEnergy refers to the relationship of the brain to the energetic aspect of the human body and how this aspect is influenced by internal and external forces. Forces such as the body’s movement; the air we breathe; the food we eat; the people we interact with; weather conditions, and environmental surroundings all affect the body’s nervous system. A  general theory of vibrations is that all materials oscillate in the same way that celestial bodies swing around their orbit in a position of equilibrium.  A coherent brainwave state occurs when internal and external forces acting on the body are balanced.


In the Micro Cosmic Orbit video, Mantak Chia explains the interconnection between internal life energies and external energies of the universe.

Wikipedia explains that in 1969 James Lovelock named the earth Gaia. He said the earth is a dynamic, self-regulating homeostatic system with an atmosphere that is the product of the life processes of organisms and an extension of a living system designed to maintain an optimal environment for its own support. Named after the physicist, Robert Schumann, Schumann resonances range from 3 to 60 Hz. The lowest-frequency and highest-intensity mode of the Schumann resonance occur at a frequency of approximately 7.83.

EEG and Health

Optimal health requires an equilibrium of energy exchanged between people and the earth. All matter emits energy that carries quantum bits of data as detected and undetected information, which can be accessed and distributed throughout the cells. Training the brain to access positive data for cellular distribution facilitates healing in the body. As indicated via EEG, the predominant frequency and degree of coherence between the brain’s right and left hemispheres provides a representation of an individual’s energetic condition.

Brainwave Data

Frequency refers to the rate at which a vibration occurs that constitutes a wave—the  number of this repeated event (cycles) per unit of time.  Calculating the frequency of a repeating waveform is accomplished by counting the number of times the wave occurs within a second, then dividing the count by the length of the time period. EEG measures the frequency in Hz. The intensity of a brainwave is the height or amplitude of the signal and is measured in Microvolts.



EEG records information (known and unknown) in the form of information that is input to the brain, processed, and output as data. Frequency is the speed at which the waveform data is accelerating, and amplitude is the intensity of the waveform, measured by the height of the waveforms. The frequency domains are beta, alpha, theta, and delta. The amplitude values or the height of the brainwave signals are measured from 0 to 20 microvolts and represent the power of the signal.

Recent developments in Open-BCI has resulted in development of the brain-duino device, which extends the frequency range to include measurement of Gamma frequencies— a high frequency range between 40 and 200 Hz. This development facilitates EEG monitoring …

John C Lilly, Neuroscientist, MD

John Lilly pioneered research in dolphin communications and founded the Human Dolphin Foundation in California. He introduced the sophisticated structure and size of the dolphin brain, and  created an extensive vocabulary of words in common with the dolphins. Additionally, he assisted in the invention of  Samadhi flotation tanks for health and research purposes. Lilly  began his tank work in an effort to reduce the pain he experienced from migraine headaches. He claimed that floating in a sensory deprivation tank was the only thing that helped his migraines.

Does the Brain Need Stimulation?

Scientific Question: What happens if you remove the stimulation of the outside world? (1953)

Hypothesis: Many scientists wondered what would happen if a person were cut off from all sensory stimulation and from interactions with the world outside…


Scientists influenced by the “behaviorist” school, thought of the brain as an organ that reacts to stimuli. They predicted that if all outside stimuli were cut off, the brain would cease its activity resulting in a condition resembling coma, or dreamless sleep.

An alternate hypothesis…

was that in a state of profound isolation from stimuli and interaction with the world, the brain would continue operating and generating experiences. See the Samadhi website

Brainwave Music

Currently, researchers and practitioners are exploring the effect of sound on the body. In earlier times the music of the spheres was a popular concept introducing the idea that the motion of planets and other entities in the cosmos produce music at varying frequencies, which can be heard either consciously or unconsciously.

The harmonious rhythms of this music were said to influence human activity making babies smile when they hear the harmonic rhythms.  The choreography of T’ai Chi Ch’uan is designed to be spherical, and energy created from the movement is  referred to as Qi.

In 1994 a bio-recliner was being tested at the Human Performance Institute of the Loma Linda University Rehabilitation Center in California. The chair was designed to input music through sensors located at key places in the chair for interaction with the physical body. Varying styles of music would be played, and the reactions of a person in the chair were monitored and analyzed.  At the Special Interest Group for Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques (SIGGRAPH) Conference that year, an exhibit for The Edge Exhibition made the chair available for conference attendees.  Additionally, a brainwave interface system was used to monitor brainwave frequencies, amplitudes, and coherence to analyze …

Brainwave Music Album

Original audio tracks on the Brainwave Morphing Virtual Album by Paras Kaul are brainwave-generated music compositions with voiceovers in some of the compositions. Alyson Krayer is the drummer on the PeaceStreams track. These music tracks were composed  as a virtual music album that addresses life changes with transformations that lead us from chaos and stress to peace and calmness.

In a broader sense the transformation refers to the transition that occurs as war evolves to peace. On an individual level, the album suggests the personal transformation that occurs when we calm chaotic brainwaves to low frequency alpha and theta brainwaves with significant coherence between the right and left hemispheres of the brain.  The “Brain On Om” concludes the album, ending with low frequency, coherent brainwave music. Before producing the brainwave music for the album, Kaul spent two days fasting and meditating in order to focus her attention and basically tune her brainwave activity to frequencies she felt were ideal for the compositions. Though Kaul has no formal background in music, she has studied music composition and produced brainwave music with well-known composers,  Steve Antosca and Mark Applebaum.

  • Brainwave Morphing Abstract

    Abstract for Brainwave Morphing and Qigong for Rehabilitation Workshop

    Brainwave morphing is a process that combines multimedia, gaming, and interactive brainwave technology for biofeedback analysis. Similar to a conductor leading an orchestra, morphing trains the mind to direct the brain’s performance to respond to positive thought. Qigong enhances the mind’s direction for the brain to emit low frequency alpha and theta brainwaves with increased coherence between left and right hemispheres. Brainwave morphing entrains the brain for low frequency coherence, which accelerates learning and self-healing, thus valuable for rehabilitation, such as trauma recovery.

  • Torpedo Factory

    Paras Kaul will be presenting brainwave wellness and new media at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria. Using EEG and brainwave interactive media, the degree of coherence between the brain’s right and left hemispheres provides a representation of an individual’s energetic condition. Disciplines that incorporate meditative practices lower brainwave frequencies, which stimulates the flow of energy in the body. Combining new media and stillness practices has the potential to accelerate learning processes and expand human consciousness, thus facilitating the evolutionary process.

    The DC SIGGRAPH (Special Interest Group for Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques) has partnered with the Torpedo Factory to feature presentations related to technology and new media.
