Did you happen to actually read any of the info I linked? Yes, REM sleep is a totally different thing than NREM sleep. But it does not
with Delta brain waves. As for Beta waves, that is the brain activity that is used when we are awake and moving around. They do
sometimes during REM sleep when the sleeper is experiencing moments of fear, high stress, anxiety, etc. They occur more frequently in the sleep
cycles of children. From my previous post:
When we sleep, the highest brain wave frequencies are the Alpha waves in a normal sleep cycle
Once again, you are answering to something that I did not actually say. I am talking about a person who is sleeping
, absent of any mental
stress that would cause a disruption in a normal
sleep cycle where Beta waves would not be present. In normal
sleep, the highest
frequency brain waves we experience are Alpha waves. This is much like the relaxed, focused brain activity we have when we are at rest and not
actively moving around in our daily activities, but are completely awake. Delta waves do not
occur during REM sleep. REM sleep is an active
stage of sleep for the brain. Delta waves are only present during deep sleep.
REM is actually a paradoxically separate state of sleep. But I still stand that it occurs during delta, more specifically towards the end of delta and
into Delta2, Delta2 meaning the duration at which we are transitioning back into stage 2 and 3, also known as alpha and theta, which is when lucid
dreaming typically takes place. It's paradoxical because you can be in a state of wakefulness during the transition out of delta state into delta2,
Delta2 which is REM, and this is also known as STAGE 5. Stage 5 is where you would place your gamma waves on the sleep cycle, if they were to occur.
During REM sleep, we are not "paradoxically" -or otherwise- awake. In fact, our bodies enter a state of paralysis during that state, as i have
already noted previously. The brain is where all the action is taking place.
Polysomnograms show brainwave patterns in REM to be similar to that recorded during wakefulness.
False. Beta is highest frequency. It's the state we are in before sleep and continues on briefly before hitting alpha state,although it is the state
we are in whist awake, it is a part of a sleep cycle due to the fact that it occurs during transition stages, known as stage 1... If you do not
include gamma, which can occur, into the transition of Delta into delta2(stage5) transitioning back into 2 and 3 (alpha and theta)
Yes. Beta waves are the activity in the brain before we lay down and start the process of falling asleep. Stage 1 does not include Beta waves, nor
Stages 2-4. REM sleep does
include Beta brain activity, under the right conditions

No. REM sleep does not happen in the presence of Delta brain waves, and no amount of insistence is going to make that true. Sleep cycles do not
always occur in sequence either; for instance if you are asleep and your cycle is interrupted before you enter REM sleep, when you go back to sleep
the brain will stay in REM sleep longer to "make up for" the lack of it in the previous cycle.
Gamma brain waves, as stated in the articles I linked for you, have been studied extensively and occur during periods of intense focus...for instance,
during deep meditation. People who are able to induce "lucid dreaming" at will
take themselves to a state of consciousness such as that seen
during the study of Tibetan monks in meditation, which I also linked. They are not asleep. Their brains are operating on a higher frequency than
even Beta brain activity, which is seen when we are awake and alert. Gamma waves are the highest frequency waves that have been recorded in the human
brain, measuring between 25 and 100 Hz, with around 40 Hz being typical in humans. They are not
part of the normal human sleep cycle, and they
are not included in any known stage of sleep. They were also discovered fairly recently...they aren't measurable with the old analog
electroencephalograph, so they were not explored until digital EEG came onto the scene. They are also known as "insight waves" and linked to
extremely high brain functionality. I linked several sources for this info as well in my previous posts.
Hate to break it to ya... But your information is still somewhat inaccurate, even after all the purported communications you claimed to have went
through. Quote from myself REM "typically" occurs during Delta and/or into Delta2
I hate to break it to you
but I have consistently backed up what I am saying with documentation, which I have taken the time to link for your
perusal. You, on the other hand, have yet to share any data supporting what you're saying. And you seem to be contradicting yourself quite a bit as
well. I am not sure what you meant by "even after all the purported communications you claimed to have went through.", but the only
"claim" I made regarding communication was that I had one conversation
with my former boss, who is a neurosurgeon and knows quite a bit about
the function of the human brain...and he was kind enough to indulge me. I have linked you numerous articles, case studies, and informational tools
which either you failed to actually read or simply ignored altogether in favor of your opinion
on how the brain works. So, I am done. I will
not continue to argue with someone who makes no effort to show the validity of the statements they are making and apparently are only interested in
wasting other people's time. Believe what you wish. I personally am going the actual, real, documented science route because I value credibility.
Have a lovely day and Blessed Be. )O(
