I'm sorry, this is nothing new, and it was "discovered" long before 1985. I know that for a fact, because I had a small device that was marketed
in the early and mid-1970s that did exactly that. I used it extensively for several months. I was attempting to increase the speed by which I was
learning the TM method of meditation. (The device was not through or from the TM org.)
My best friend has never believed me, but I achieved the blissful state of "Oneness" in short order using the device, but I did. (It doesn't
automatically make you a monk or a saint!) That type of device has been outlawed in the US since the mid-1980s or maybe even earlier.) Basically, it
is a gloried "Tens" unit for the head. Today, they are available for use on other parts of the body. They can be relatively cheap pen-type devices
for local pain or more complex with electrodes, etc. The formerly clinical EEG instrument has become wired to computers and can be used for brainwave
training also. That is where the biggest promise for this direct work with the brain lays. (Don't tell Big Brother!)
It is unfortunate that such methods are considered dangerous, snake oil or worthless. They work. What happened is that the "seeking Alpha" craze of
the 1970s lead to much bad press, coming on the heels of the '___' stories as it did.
Biofeedback training, specifically, brainwave training called neurofeedback is a growing field for treating all sorts of disorders that formerly were
not dreamed to be connected to particular brainwave states. Many therapist, MDs, psychologists use them today. The internet is alive with info on
these units. Most are available only via a professionals perscription and guidence. If you are interested in such training, check out the key words
I've given above.
My equipment includes a Roshi Brain Brightner and an early version of the Brain Master EEG machine. Other methods using earphones that emit off-set
frequences put to each ear to induce many of the same braiwave changes using sound alone. The proven Hemi-Sync tapes used by the Army's Remote
Viewing people is a good example of these. Some use lights. I advocate all of these methods, but have no financial interest in any of them.
