Tom Campbell - My Big TOE

If you've been to my website a few times, or follow the Emerging Paradigms facebook page you've probably noticed that I'm quite a fan of Tom Campbells theories and ideas. Tom is the author of an amazing trillogy of books, collectively known as "My Big TOE". He is also a physicist and experienced "out of body" researcher, he is referred to in Monroe's "Far Journeys" as TC Physicist. If you are fascinated by consciousness and the nature of reality, this is the #1 book I would most highly recommend you read in 2013. It is quite a mindful of information, but well worth the journey!

Binaural Beats for Lucid Dreaming: is it just Pseudoscience?

Ryan Hurd from Dream Studies has written a great article on Brainwave Entrainment and Lucid Dreaming.

Healing Rhythmic Drumming

A researcher, Melinda Maxfield, who studied the Shamans discovered that the rhythmic drumming that the shaman’s assistants do is actually the vehicle that transports the Shaman into the right state of consciousness for his Shamanic rituals. Not only that, the drumming is done at a specific rhythm of four-and-a-half beats per second.

Good Connection Really Does Lead to Mind Meld

When two people experience a deep connection, they’re informally described as being on the same wavelength. There may be neurological truth to that.

Brain scans of a speaker and listener showed their neural activity synchronizing during storytelling. The stronger their reported connection, the closer the coupling.

Maxwell Cade & Exploring Biofeedback

In Max’s book The Awakened Mind, he defines biofeedback as follows: “Essentially, biofeedback is a new way of learning about ourselves, or a way of relearning, or realising for the first time, what the body already knows - how to act, how to feel, even how to heal - if we listen to it . . . biofeedback can be said to provide the means to become aware - acutely aware - of ourselves, and thereby gain the possibility of self-control.”

An Exercise For Observing and Reducing Visual Hemispheric Dominance

Repeated use of binaural beat audio technology effects hemispheric dominance. Binaural beat technology increases activity across the corpus callosum in other words interhemispheric transfer of information between the left and right brain. This leads to a relative shift in hemispheric dominance (from left-brain dominance to whole-brain dominance) and hemispheric synchronization, harmony and unity in the brain. This exercise and test can help to reduce brain dominance and helps to induce an interesting meditative state of mind.
