Bristol is very much the ‘home’ of neurological science; the University here has a well funded and equipped neurology department, with juicy kit from encephalographs to a version of Dr. Persinger’s mind control device ‘the Octopus’ (sometimes called the ‘God Helmet’). Some of the most important breakthroughs happened here, such as the discovery of the Delta frequency, as well as various unsavoury experiments we are none of us supposed to be chatting about (certain academics are bound by the equivalent of the ‘D notice’ for journalists). Now, I don’t have access to any of this department, despite having written the book on neuromancy (which I could not have done if I were an academic with credibility to support – mind control and psychic experiments generally coming under these ‘D notices’), but I do have a friend – a qualified neuroscientist – who does. A most unusual chap, he is also a Hindu, and a bit of a mystic, specialising in the neurology of revelations; the ‘aha’ moment when you suddenly realise the solution to a conundrum.
Readers of my work The Neuronomicon will know that I have an interest in the ‘mystical’ neurological frequencies of Gamma to Hyper-Gamma. Few funded experiments seem to have taken place studying the potentials of these frequencies; they were only discovered in 2004 during experiments with Buddhist monks meditating on the ‘Higher Virtues’. While there is a great deal of data already gathered Theta frequencies corresponding to psychic activity (remote viewing & influence), as explored in The Neuronomicon regarding ‘results’ directed magick, there is very little information available concerning these higher states of consciousness that some have called Enlightenment or Illumination. All we know so far is that these Gamma frequencies seem to improve the function of the brain as a whole, bringing the other frequencies into ‘tune’ with each other and integrating cerebral activity. They seem to play an important part in overcoming cognitive dissonance – integrating new information that appears to be at odds with what is already known (or believed to be known). Unsurprisingly, Gamma frequencies tend to be stronger in highly intelligent people, but they also seem to correspond to increased empathy; suggesting a ‘scientifically provable’ link between spiritual evolution, intelligence, and caring about other people. It has also been shown that Gamma frequencies can be activated through meditating on the principle of ‘Light’; even simply visualising a bright white light produces a measurable increase.
But we don’t know where these Gamma frequencies are coming from. Until their discovery in 2004, the Gamma frequencies had been misinterpreted as ‘noise’, as they are at a higher frequency to neurons and nobody can work out where they are coming from in the brain.
Now, I have this really crazy sounding theory; it concerns the nature of consciousness as a frequency, the idea that humans are more like ‘receivers’ of consciousness rather than ‘transmitters’.. and the potential that we might also – through Hyper-Gamma – be connected to cosmic rays originating ultimately from extraterrestrial sources. When I presented this theory to my friend I expected him to laugh and tell me why I was wrong. Instead, he sat there for a long time going, “wow…”
Admittedly we were both quite stoned by this point, but apparently my theory could make sound scientific sense, at least according to my very qualified friend. Apparently there is already some evidence to suggest I am right – while the Theta (dreaming) frequencies correspond to the Schumann resonance of the planet Earth, it just so happens Gamma (superconscious?) frequencies correspond background radiation originating from the ‘Big Bang’. In any case, we’ve agreed it is an area worth investigating, even if it is just an excuse for playing with the ‘God helmet’. If our experiments bear fruit there may be a second part to The Neuronomicon dealing exclusively with these under-explored mystical states.
