Meditation - Computer Assisted
Often people find it difficult to calm their mind, and to
concentrate on one point only, when advised to do so in
meditation books. Here the PC can be of great help. The
following set-up will create a "Ganzfeld" simulation - a new
browser window showing an animated (the first 5 and the last
one) or static graphic accompanied by some music. You can
customise the picture, screen size, background pattern or
colour, and the music tune. To get into a meditative state,
click on the "Start Meditation" link, look at the centre of the
image - don't concentrate however, and listen to the music
(adjust the volume to shut out most of your background noise).
After a while you should be in the so called alpha state of
brainwaves. You might get deeper - to the theta and even the
delta states. What you do in these states is up to you. The
"Ganzfeld" set-up has been proven to enhance PSI capabilities in
virtually all subjects.
This page can only serve as an example for what
is possible with this method. If you want to experiment on
your own, I suggest you download this page on to your own PC
and modify it for your own pictures and music files. Of course
you can simply look in full screen mode at any graphic and
play in the background any suitable audio file, without the
need for html!
Just be sure to
invoke spiritual protection, before you start!

Since I don't want to violate any copyrights I have included only
self-created images and music sequenced and created by myself. If
you want to use your own images or music on your own PC, chose
"Local file - prompt follows". You will be asked to enter the URL
of the file to select.
The format for images is the following (examples)
For LINUX: file:///home/fred/pics/mypic.gif The format for music is identical, just chose files
with suffix .mid, .mp2 or .mp3
For Windows: file:///C:/Pictures/nicepic.jpg
Windows users: Note that backslashes
must be replaced with forward-slashes!!!
You can chose files with suffix .gif or .jpg or .png
Of course you can replace the local URL with any remote one. It is
however very impolite to encumber any remote server for this
purpose! If you like some image or music on any website, download
it on to your own PC and use it from there. It is also much
quicker this way!
Your web browser must be capable of:
- Displaying dynamically created webpages.
- Handling the <embed> tag with the loop parameter.
Under LINUX use the mozplugger plug-in!
- Handling embedded .mid, mp2 and .mp3 files (mimetypes
audio/midi audio/mpeg2 and audio/mp3).
- Handling links to local files. For instance Seamonkey and
Firefox won't do it. On the Linux platform konqueror
does it OK!
There are 4 types that are of interst for meditators:
Here is how to create "deep meditation"

- Alpha: 8 to < 12 Hertz,
state of relaxation, improved learning ability.
- Theta: 4 to < 8 Hertz,
deeply relaxed. Dreamlike awareness.
