Brain-Wave Entrainment Artifact.


Tek-Gnostics’ Intelligence Engineering Department has been deeply focused, of late, in the development of auditory brain-wave entrainment and entertainment technologies. This super-secret project went by the codename: Operation BrainStorm. The Deep Development phase of this project has been completed and we have commenced releasing specific artifacts for beta-testing purposes (see below) and for sale on our Main Website’s commerce H.E.A.D. shop.

The active mechanisms being utilized are sound and light. Pulsed sound in the form of musical rhythms has been entraining people for thousands of years. Sound and light, used in the proper setting, has been shown to facilitate brain entrainment, through what is known as the frequency-following effect. This effect is more profound with pulsed, binaural beats. A binaural beat is the result of one ear hearing a pure tone of a slightly differing pitch than the other ear. The brain then actually synthesizes the difference between the two, syncing with the result.

Binaural beats synchronize the activity of the left and right hemispheres of your brain. This synchronization can increase the flow of information between the two hemispheres, thereby accelerating learning and increasing creativity.

The Tek-Gnostics BrainStorm™ series harnesses the power of the binaural frequency following effect, within our "consciousness hacking" technology. Each artifact in our series, targets a specific brainwave frequency, such as Alpha, Beta, Theta & Delta. Each brain-state enhances specific functions such as creativity, relaxation, meditation, etc.

As indicated earlier, we have begun releasing audio entrainment tracks, available for downloading at our commerce site: Heretical Engineering and Development (H.E.A.D.). We charge modest price for each download.

The following experimental entrainment piece is entitled "Earth Djinn". It utilizes a frequency known as the Schumann Resonance, which is a global electromagnetic standing wave, naturally generated between Earth's surface and the ionosphere. This resonance frequency typically measures 7.83 Hz. The Schumann resonance is considered to be Earth’s Vibe (frequency). It is a wonderful way to get in tune with our home world.

Stereophonic HEADphones or earbuds are required, in order to experience the maximum entrainment properties of this artifact.

So sit back...  Relax!

Learn to program your own HEAD space. Be the first Heretical Engineer on your block!
And, have fun with your new...
HEAD!

Universe=Consciousness... post-materialist science.


At the end of the nineteenth century, physicists discovered empirical phenomena that could not be explained by classical physics. This led to the development, during the 1920s and early 1930s, of a revolutionary new branch of physics called quantum mechanics (QM). QM has questioned the material foundations of the world by showing that atoms and subatomic particles are not really solid objects… they do not exist with certainty at definite spatial locations and definite times. Most importantly, QM explicitly introduced the mind into its basic conceptual structure, since it was found that particles being observed and the observer (ie: the physicist and the method used for observation) are linked. According to one interpretation of QM, this phenomenon implies that the consciousness of the observer is vital to the existence of the physical events being observed, and that mental events can affect the physical world. The results of recent experiments support this interpretation. These results suggest that the physical world is no longer the primary or sole component of reality, and that it cannot be fully understood without making reference to the mind.

- Item 7 from the Manifesto for a Post-Materialist Science 

Within the study of social science, post-materialism is defined as the transformation of individual values, away from materialist, physical and economic… to a new paradigm of individual values emphasizing autonomy and self-expression. The philosophical definition of traditional materialism concerns the argument that matter is the only existing reality… the only real reality. Recent mainstream science operates under this assumption. Today, this notion is known as “scientific materialism.” However, this view is disappearing at an exponential rate, given the fact that quantum physics has shown us that what we perceive as our physical material world, is not really physical at all.

Post-materialist science postulates that human consciousness is an integral component, even a generative, co-creative component… of reality.

In a recent article entitled: “Is Consciousness A Product Of the Brain… Or Is the Brain the Receiver of Consciousness?” …columnist Arjun Walia stated that…

Consciousness is the way we perceive and observe our world, the way we think, our intentions, feelings, emotions and, (as it turns out) more. One of the biggest questions regarding human consciousness today is whether it is simply a product of our brain, or if the brain is a receiver of consciousness. If consciousness is not a product of the brain it would mean that the human physicality is not required for the continuation of consciousness, or consciousness itself.


“If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet. Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.” 
– Niels Bohr

Below is a great video from Dr. Gary Schwartz, professor of psychology, medicine, neurology, psychiatry and surgery at the University of Arizona discussing whether consciousness is the product of the brain or a receiver of it. It is a little overview of a subject that is full of peer reviewed scientific research that not many people have the time to go through. It would actually be almost be impossible to go through all of it.

Transpolitica - anticipating tomorrow's politics.


Manifesto (Preamble)


Transpolitica holds that human society should embrace, wisely, thoughtfully, and compassionately, the radical transformational potential of technology.

The speed and direction of technological adoption can be strongly influenced by social and psychological factors, by legislation, by subsidies, and by the provision or restriction of public funding. Political action can impact all these factors, either for better or for worse.

Transpolitica wishes to engage with politicians of all parties to increase the likelihood of an attractive, equitable, sustainable, progressive future. The policies we recommend are designed:

  • To elevate the thinking of politicians and other leaders, away from being dominated by the raucous issues of the present, to addressing the larger possibilities of the near future
  • To draw attention to technological opportunities, map out attractive roads ahead, and address the obstacles which are preventing us from fulfilling our cosmic potential.


Transpolitica calls upon politicians of all parties to define and support:

  • Regenerative projects to take full advantage of accelerating technology.
More specifically, we call for:

  • Economic and personal liberation via the longevity dividend
  • An inclusive new social contract in the light of technological disruption
  • A proactionary regulatory system to fast-track innovative breakthroughs
  • Reform of democratic processes with new digital tools
  • Education transformed in readiness for a radically different future
  • A progressive transhumanist rights agenda
  • An affirmative new perspective on existential risks.
