Um, Papagiorgio, during ur meditation event, what was the source of crying?, since i understand the contageous laughter part, having experienced it a few times when i was younger. Just want to add that the use of words like 'contemplation' is misleading when discussing laughter and crying. If you dont understand why, thats ok. Just food for thought. Promise you'll never call a suicide line and say something like 'i was contemplating to call someone else but got the numbers wrong' just incase theres a few digit difference and you were actually trying to dial some known persons number and use words like 'tried' or say you 'meant to' and refrain from using words like 'contemplation'.

Yeah, Forrest Gump thats my favorite too. The Zen master thing sounds sceptical, but if it worked, thats great. Good for you.

Good question.
Well I'm not sure what exactly was the real source of my crying there
when the saddest thing I had at hand was this master's Ryokan "Song of the Grass Roof Hermitage" - about a lonely monk and emptiness of his life.
It is kinda sad but I have to say it was a quest for me too.
When you can't feel anything you can always "use" the sad suffering of others. It has to be the desensitization from movies making us unable to cry in a place like this. We need to exercise the compassion eventually to concentrate on chest on a daily basis. Especially men need to train the right brain hemisphere. However the empaths may ask you if you are sure you really want it.
What is the source of crying of a newborn baby with no conceptual memory? I think the oneness is the key. Lost oneness with mother in a womb and the saddest loss of oneness with the Source. This primal cry is actually a treasure - our burning aspiration.
I'm not sure what's wrong with the word contemplation. You may noticed I'm not a native speaker but a free dictionary tells me it's meditation on spiritual matters which is exactly what a third phase should be about. Not the first phase or the second one but the silent phase which is important part of this healing process.

I remember a very poignant clip from 'The Wayfinders: Science of the Mind where Wade Davis talks about meditation in the context of a novice Westerner and how raw emotions rise to the surface in the first few moments of finally stilling the mind, since moderners have such a frenetic, whirlwind of thought processes etc. I had that clip on my old YouTube account as well, I always remembered it. I used to call meditation "the crying thing", and sometimes go out of my way to force myself to cry to sort of flush out the brain. It really does work, but it is related to meditation - and I guess once you go deeper, it gets much more interesting...

ETA: A predominant side effect of NOT going through this sort of emotional purge via crying or meditation, particularly for males, is agitation and aggression - or generally speaking being a huge Mr. Grumpy Pants.

Deja Vu is deeply correlated to gamma wave production (Herrman et al. Human EEG gamma oscillations in neuropsychiatric disorders. Clinical Neurophysiology, 116(12), 2719-2733.) Although deja vu is considered a disorder by the mainstream, it is quite the opposite.

Deja vu is us remembering that eternal present moment. A communion with Being allowed by a dismantled ego.

I've read that people with enough gamma don't need beta which is associated with alertness, problem solving but also with stress and headaches. Is this the "keep smiling" mode? Or one has to be spiritually conscious or to be emotionally opened up or cleansed at least from time to time?
The problem is that it's not easily applicable with tech. You'd need a futuristic neurofeedback application, read your exact brainwave patterns in Hz during the day, during the laughter etc and replicate it anytime.
The other option is that we will experiment with anything someone placed on youtube and see what happens.
I think the research is done by internet itself but without a proper technology.
And what if we need to spend some time away from the Electric power grid working at 50 or 60 Hz to be able to cry properly or to dream properly?

This is interresting:

40.0 Hz - dominant when problem solving in fearful situations. Gamma - associated with information-rich task processing & high-level information processing; "'For scientists who study the human brain, even its simplest act of perception is an event of astonishing intricacy. 40 Hz brain activity may be a kind of binding mechanism', said Dr. Rodolfo Llinas a professor of neuroscience at New York University. Llinas believes that the 40-cycle-per-second wave serves to connect structures in the cortex where advanced information processing occurs, and the thalamus, a lower brain region where complex relay & integrative functions are carried out.";... ...Used in conjunction with 22 HZ for 'out of body' travel; Also used with 22 HZ for psychic healing. "40--Hz activity varies from 38.8 to 40.1-Hz, regardless of the electrode site. The average frequency is in the ~39.5-Hz range. In summary, when the body is profoundly relaxed & the mind is in a state of high focus and concentration, 20 & 40-Hz brain activity can be seen in the raw and quantitative EEG of some subjects. It is possible that 18 to 22-Hz Beta & possibly 40-Hz neurofeedback training may help create a "relaxed body/focused mind" state of consciousness." Activity in the ectosylvian & lateral cortex, medial geniculate, reticular formation, center median thalamus & hippocampus; Confirming Sheer et al.'s work,compared the EEG of middle- & high-I.Q. subjects during mental multiplication activity. A 40-Hz rhythm occurred just prior to the subject's answering the question. Forty--Hz pulses are thought to lead to synchronization + coordination of neurons assigned to the processing of incoming sensory stimulation. Put in "computerese," 40-Hz may be the brain's "operating system" frequency] Involved In The Processing Of Psi Information (see note)

For me personally, you hit the nail on the head. Unfortunately I am hyper alert and hyper aware, both my sense of hearing and awareness of people around me and all possible variations of social this and that etc. I remember reading a story about Carl Jung when he had bought a cabin way out in the countryside by a lake and he said that he needed to go there because he felt that he was "constantly encroached upon" in the city. But even the suburbs etc - constant noise and activity. That's why I stay up at night. I can actually feel the hour when the majority of people are falling asleep. Also, I have the sneaking suspicion that I do not want to dream with the collective either, as well as not wanting to really live or interact with them. I like people, but I have been described as a-social LOL.

Either way, the sensitivity creates a feedback loop where it is very difficult, sometimes impossible, to let go, surrender and relax. It was easier several years ago - I know the novelty theory or "acceleration" of technology is part of this frenzied mental activity. The neural pathways of constant social media and internet activity causes this itself. "The house was quiet and the world was calm" - a mindset necessary for me to be at peace. It is probably also biochemical as well.

So I would need the biofeedback and more nature, for sure. But I have also been pondering other technological options relating to Dr. Andrija Puharich's "Teslar" watches, an alleged electromagnetic shield type device. Or there is another Schumann 7.83 Hz generator on the market, probably all kinds, but I need to make sure it is the "real deal" and worth the money.

So my one option is this one: Schumann Resonator

or one of these ones: Teslar Watch

At first I'd like to say sorry for derailing the thread for a while.

Without the gamma oneness you may suffer from the gamma laughter deficiency.

I know what you mean by going off the collective dreaming / daily consciousness grid. I use herbs both for dreaming and not-dreaming, increasing and decreasing empathy.

The Schumann resonances: I think they could work in the opposite way - not as a human shield but a rather a DSL cable. However they may be grounding and in tune with the incoming light at the same time (as they depend on the speed of light) but who knows?

What about just going offline for a while? One could be more "connected" with people's minds if one reads their stuff or watch a movie simultaneously in a TV. And I mean people living in different timezones too...
It's funny that I used to do the same trick but after some time I felt that there's a large portion of people going to sleep pretty late and it's the worse group to be synchronized with
I feel better and more usefull especially when I'm able to stand up earlier to meditate. Either you are giving or getting the tempo but if there is a given "nature's" biorhythm it's surely good to stay in tune and not to piss against the wind and miss the train. We are affected anyway during the day.
I feel my city badly too. Every stupid soccer match is poisoning the city consciousness with ANGER and sometimes it lasts for a long time and it can spread like a flu. You can fight the evil on many levels if you are able to conquer it within yourself. Maybe there is a possible state of neutrality but the oneness works both ways so when you are shining and doing things right others will benefit from it and you'll benefit from them, no matter what. Love is essential.

The only tech I need for gamma is Audacity but I am thinking of a RIFE machine
