Schumann resonances are the principal background in the electromagnetic spectrum beginning at 3 Hz and extend to 60 Hz, and appear as distinct peaks at extremely low frequencies (ELF) around 7.83 (fundamental), 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz. ibed wiki
Beta waves (14 to 30 Hz),
Alpha waves (8 to 13 Hz),
Theta waves (4 to 7 Hz), and
Delta waves (1 to 3 Hz).
Alpha frequencies have been associated with meditation and relaxation.
Theta frequencies have been associated with a dreamy, creative states.
Scientists have demonstrated that cats produce the purr... frequency between 25 and 150 Hertz. Various investigators have shown that sound frequencies in this range can improve bone density and promote healing.
This association between the frequencies of cats' purrs and improved healing of bones and muscles may provide help for some humans. Bone density loss and muscle atrophy is a serious concern for astronauts during extended periods at zero gravity. Their musculo-skeletal systems do not experience the normal stresses of physical activity, including routine standing or sitting, which requires strength for posture control.
Perhaps cats' purring helps alleviate the dysplasia or osteoporotic conditions that are more common in their canid cousins. Although it is tempting to state that cats purr because they are happy, it is more plausible that cat purring is a means of communication and a potential source of self-healing.
20 Ionization of the air: An abundance of negative condensation nuclei (“air ions”) in ingested air enhances alertness and exhilaration, while an excess of positive ions enhances drowsiness and depression. Calculation of the ionic balance of a target audience’s atmospheric environment will be correspondingly useful. Again this is a naturally-occurring condition - caused by such varying agents as solar ultraviolet light, lightning, and rapidly-moving water - rather than one which most be artificially created. (Detonation of nuclear weapons, however, will alter atmospheric ionization levels.) Cf. Soyke, Fred and Edmonds, Alan, The Ion Effect. New York: E.P. Dutton, 1977. 21 Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) waves: ELF waves up to 100 Hz are once more naturally occurring, but they can also be produced artificially (such as for the Navy’s Project Sanguine for submarine communication). ELF-waves are not normally noticed by the unaided senses, yet their resonant effect upon the human body has been connected to both physiological disorders and emotional distortion. Infrasound vibration (up to 20 Hz) can subliminally influence brain activity to align itself to delta, theta, alpha, or beta wave patterns, inclining an audience toward everything from alertness to passivity. Infrasound could be used tactically, as ELF-waves endure for great distances; and it could be used in conjunction with media broadcasts as well. See Playfair, Guy L. and Hill, Scott, The Cycles of Heaven. New York: St. Martin’s Press, 1978, pages 130-140.
Suggested relationship to ghost sightings
Research by Vic Tandy, a lecturer at Coventry University, suggested that an infrasonic signal of 19 Hz might be responsible for some ghost sightings. Tandy was working late one night alone in a supposedly haunted laboratory at Warwick, when he felt very anxious and could detect a grey blob out of the corner of his eye. When Tandy turned to face the grey blob, there was nothing.
The following day, Tandy was working on his fencing foil, with the handle held in a vise. Although there was nothing touching it, the blade started to vibrate wildly. Further investigation led Tandy to discover that the extractor fan in the lab was emitting a frequency of 18.98 Hz, very close to the resonant frequency of the eye given as 18 Hz by NASA. This was why Tandy had seen a ghostly figure—it was an optical illusion caused by his eyeballs resonating. The room was exactly half a wavelength in length, and the desk was in the centre, thus causing a standing wave which caused the vibration of the foil.
Tandy investigated this phenomenon further and wrote a paper entitled The Ghost in the Machine. Tandy carried out a number of investigations at various sites believed to be haunted, including the basement of the Tourist Information Bureau next to Coventry Cathedral and Edinburgh Castle.

MindWar must target all participants if it is to be effective. It must not only weaken the enemy; it must strengthen the United States. It strengthens the United States by denying enemy propaganda access to our people, and by explaining and emphasizing to our people the rationale for our national interest in a specific war.
Under existing United States law, PSYOP units may not target American citizens.12 That prohibition is based upon the presumption that “propaganda” is necessarily a lie or at least a misleading half-truth, and that the government has no right to lie to the people. The Propaganda Ministry of Goebbels must not be a part of the American way of life.
Quite right, and so it must be axiomatic of MindWar that it always speaks the truth. Its power lies in its ability to focus recipients’ attention on the truth of the future as well as that of the present. MindWar thus involves the stated promise of the truth that the United States has resolved to make real if it is not already so.
The frequencies of these waves fall into 5 ranges that are commonly studied: gamma (30-70Hz), beta (13-30Hz), alpha (8-13Hz), theta (4-8Hz), and delta (1-4Hz).5 Although any of these frequencies can occur at any electrode site, alpha waves are often recorded at posterior sites, theta waves at frontal sites, and gamma waves over sensory cortices.6 Each of these wave patterns have been correlated with various conscious phenomena through studies of sleep, attention, meditation, hypnosis, music, and other areas.
Meditative states associated with the increased presence of delta waves seem to occur mostly in very experienced practitioners, possibly because entering a delta state and maintaining consciousness at the same time is tremendously difficult.62 One study on religious experiences, where epileptic-like electrical changes in the temporal lobes were the focus, reported that 10 seconds of delta waves in the temporal lobes of a Transcendental meditator correlated with his reports of a peak meditation experience.63 These observations in the lab setting are extremely rare and additional support for this delta-wave theory of meditative consciousness is currently lacking.
Another interesting finding relates to the effects of sleep deprivation on arousal and brain waves. Researchers found that during a prolonged period of REM sleep deprivation, an animal’s reticular formation and the structures to which it projects (thalamus and cortex) will begin to produce brain waves in the lower alpha-theta-delta range, often in association with strange behaviors as if the animal were hallucinating.156
In summary, the reticular formation is just the sort of brain structure capable of integrating auditory input with arousal states. What would happen if we induced very rhythmic auditory signals? Researchers at the Monroe Institute theorize that such signals will entrain the neurons of the reticular formation which will in turn send similarly entrained signals up to the cortex inducing certain frequencies of brain waves. So in theory, if a person listens to a 7 Hz pulse for long enough, the reticular formation will entrain to this frequency, inducing 7 Hz brain waves, or those in the alpha range, and produce an alpha state of consciousness.”

HAARP transmits high frequency radio energy to a limited region above the antenna array. It cannot "beam" the energy elsewhere.
Why are you connecting infrasound with HAARP? Infrasound is sound. HAARP does not use sound. Electromagnetic radiation is not the same as sound.
You mention electromagnetism in your title. What does electromagnetism have to do with anything in your OP? It is not the same as sound or electromagnetic radiation.
edit on 2/26/2012 by Phage because: (no reason given)
The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) has been entwined with controversy since its birth. Originally envisioned as a way to facilitate communications with nuclear-armed submarines,
Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances
The HAARP transmitter radiates in a narrow frequency range of 2.8 to 10 MHz. However, using the ionosphere as an active medium, it can provide secondary radiation sources in the IR, visible, and ULF/ELF/VLF ranges. It can also develop new links in the HF/VHF/UHF ranges by rippling the electron density of the ionosphere, thereby producing controlled scatterers at these frequencies.

Expect me to be glued to this thread.
Isochronic tones are my daily soundtrack, vibration is what I'm looking for every day. I hope we can get together and experiment tomorrow night about listening to the same frequencies and trying to communicate. That would be awesome.
Til tomorrow, cheers.
