Informal Discussion of Topics

... about synchrony and entrainment between resonant oscillators. That is not metaphysics, it is harmonic theory and physics. Can you describe a resonant oscillator? How does harmonic resonance apply to the brain? An oscillator is just another term fo...

Reviews for Psychedelic Information Theory

... classical wave mechanics, with terms like neural oscillators, periodic drivers, wave entrainment, resonance and coherence. Of particular interest are his characterizations of psychedelic agents as nonlinear feedback amplifiers, and descriptions of s...

PIT Summary and Overview

... complexity and convergence in coupled oscillators. By modeling the brain and the human organism as a resonant oscillator, PIT fully describes the power of hallucinogens and shamanic ritual to produce expanded states of multi-stable consci...

Conclusions and Discussion

... concepts like wave mechanics, coupled oscillators, and deterministic chaos to the processes of perception and consciousness. Some components of PITís general theory of destabilization and nonlinear amplification in recurrent perceptual sy...

Group Mind and Fluid Tribal Dynamics

... mind begins with some basic assumptions about oscillators and wave mechanics: If the mind is an multi-phase oscillator for processing information, and two oscillating minds can be synchronized through harmonic or resonant wave interference, then ...

Psychic Bonding and Psi

Psychic bonding is a physical, neurological adaptation that occurs when two subjects spend time together sharing thoughts, feelings, and personal space. Psychic bonding is a survival trait that all animals and possibly all plants share. Psychic bonds...

Hypnotic Entrainment and Induced Trance States

... as the oscillatorís resonant frequency, and oscillators can have many resonant frequencies which top out at maximum amplitudes. If we envision the brain as an oscillator for maintaining stable consciousness, each band of consciousness in the sp...

Physical Shamanism and Shamanic Therapy

... stability.1 The same model applied to neural oscillators in a sensory network can be applied to cellular oscillators in an biological matrix. Many functions of metabolism and cellular signaling are modulated by 5-HT and dopamine, interrupting th...

An Overview of Physical Shamanism

... physical shamanism relies on models of neural oscillators and resonant wave entrainment as opposed to spirit models of supernatural medium channeling, telepathy, or clairvoyance. The Control Interrupt Model of Psychedelic Action presents a descri...

Entrainment (Physics)

... independently, assume the same period. The two oscillators may fall into synchrony, but other phase relationships are also possible. The system with the greater frequency slows down, and the other accelerates. Christian Huygens, a notable physi...

Notes on Sensory Binding and Coherence

... that are high in coherence may act like coupled oscillators in a feedback circuit, or they may take the form of parallel circuits engaged in synchronized processing tasks....

What is Consciousness?

... the brain is measured in terms of coupled neural oscillators, neural spike synchrony, and coherence of network oscillations.7 Waking consciousness oscillates within the alpha and beta ranges; high frequency gamma coherence is associated with the fas...

Dynamical consequences of fast-rising, slow-decaying synapses in neuronal networks

... neurons behave as if they are weakly coupled oscillators. This property allows us to determine their synchronization properties. Furthermore, slowly decaying synapses allow recurrent networks to maintain excitation in the absence of inputs, wher...

The Control Interrupt Model of Psychedelic Action

... of waking consciousness is destabilized, neural oscillators in the brain will spontaneously organize into coherence with the most energetic local drivers. This process can be described in terms of oscillator entrainment and resonance; when the modu...
