I have a theory, flashing Infrared can reduce the intensity of hallucinations in psych patients. Especially on specific areas.


Red and blue flashing lights on Bobby cars cause seizures in some people.

I try think I will get my disco light and find out.
I was referring to legs, arms, chest, back..not eyes.
I've found personal relief using infrared.

only if it is a specific frequency
"flashing lights most likely to trigger seizures are between the frequency of 5 to 30 flashes per second (Hertz)."
www.epilepsy.com...
the article states this method was using flashes at 40 per second, so seizure patients would be safe with this.

With advances in computer modeling, many of these tests on mice, rats, and other animals are unnecessary and archaic.

I feel sick because I know what a horrible existence the animals have endured in their 'participation' of these tests.

no amount of computer modeling will replace real life experimentation in value.

to stop animal testing two things must change,
first, animal life must become more valued in society then human life,
and two, animal life must become more valued financially then human life. neither will ever happen. so the animal testing will continue.


Oh great info I appreciate the response back. I've sorta wondered about this for a while now. So you could probably make your own light with the proper led's?

sure sounds that way, they state it is just low intensity ambient light, they had success with light level so low it was barely even visible.

the idea here is there is a general rhythm to cell activation in the brain and those suffering from Alzheimer's generally fall out of that rhythm, these strobing lights are activating cells in the visual cortex at the right rhythm encouraging them to get back into the natural rhythm they fell out of. the article does say this only had an effect on the visual cortex not any other brain regions, whether or not this effect could trickle out of the visual cortex into other regions in the long term remains to be seen, but experimenting with it does seem to be very cheap, short term, and risk free.

also, just to plug the conspiratorial angle, the fact that this is cheap and non medicine, means the pharmaceutical industry will cast it aside, which of course means our entire medical establishment doctors and all, will ignore this.

Now this is really interesting because I know that flashing light destroys bacteria. I might look into this some more.

Thanks for the info!

There is so much info that is yet to be learned. I wonder about the Rife machine, rifemachine.com... and if this is an actual machine that works.

I have an old Novag Mind Activator which does this sort of thing. It's like a set of sunglasses with LEDs connected to a unit with different programs (22 plus 2 programmable) that flash the LEDs in different sequences. I used it primarily for meditation and enhanced learning. It seems to me that if you wanted to do the same thing today on the cheap you could use something like Samsung VR or Cardboard with a smartphone if you could get someone to write an app.

Very good thinking, all it would take is the right flashing and color maybe.?

I don't know if color would be required. The Novag LEDs are red, and the unit is designed to be used with the eyes closed. You can "see" the bright red through the eyelids.

Yes please..
Keep us apriced about this...

OT, would a standard led computerscreen
be used...??

Years ago, there used to be these really interesting rigs with multicolor light stimulator goggles and binaural beat headphones you could wear to sort of zone out/meditate. Some of them could be jacked into a computer to set up any sort of color or flash pattern you wanted.

eta: Looking around, there are still plenty of them out there.

If you could use 30Hz and get results, then making it would be easy. You could get an old stepdown transformer that outputs 6-12volts and put a diode in series with a resistor of the proper value and then connect that to the LED. The diode would only allow the LED to turn on for half of the AC waveform 60Hz /2 .

You could also find flashing keychain light and if it has 2 resistors in it, one of them probably controls the rate it flashes at. Then just point it at the ceiling in a dark room, otherwise it is too bright to stare into directly.

just make it now. its freakin lights lol. whats the worse thing to happen, your grandpa has a week of lights?

anyone that has this should just have someone nifty with electronics to rig up a system.


Depends whether or not the person also has epilepsy...flashing lights can cause a fit for sufferers.

Or get an old VCR and not set the time....


They sell battery operated flashing LEDS in the pound shop..costing £1 unsurprisingly.

Not a huge amount to risk, £1 fairy lights and a couple of AA batts.

The info that was released is real non specific, but if this works, it will be like Lorenzo's oil. They will not be able to keep the lid on for very long at all.

While the R+D scientists work there are millions of people that are fading, I would hope this would be "fast tracked".

Also a threat to someone, or something. It seems he made a lot of people nervous.

Photosonix Nova Pro 100 Light & Sound Machine (amazon)

I have one that looks the same as this. I use it to help fall asleep when I pop wide awake at ungodly o'clock in the morning. You need a couple session before it starts to work or you get trained to it. It works! In the middle of summer and the sun comes up around 4 am and I wake up, I put it one, choose the deep sleep program and back to sleep I go.

If they are using nothing special or specific then something similar would work. Which is why I asked about "frequency" and "intensity". I may, through no fault but my own need to go to sleep, already have a plaque buster!

[ETA: The deep sleep program is 60 minutes or so! I might already be exercising my microglia]

That looks like the one I used to use ages ago. I note you can buy the 'glasses' for several of these devices pretty reasonably ($30 or so) as replacements, it should be the work of a few hours at worst to design a microcontroller to flash them any way you'd like. I just don't know how well a mouse program works for people.
