I-Doser & Binaural Beat Frequencies- Getting high off sound? May 22, 2007Posted by ronandi in Cool, Strange.
I found this online a while ago, and just thought that it was pretty interesting.
I-doser is a program which utilizes the technology of Binaural beats.
The brain produces a similar phenomenon internally, resulting in low-frequency pulsations in the loudness of a perceived sound when two tones at slightly different frequencies are presented separately, one to each of a subject’s ears, using stereo headphones. A beating tone will be perceived, as if the two tones mixed naturally, out of the brain. The frequency of the tones must be below about 1,000 to 1,500 hertz for the beating to be heard. The difference between the two frequencies must be small (below about 30 Hz) for the effect to occur; otherwise the two tones will be heard separately and no beat will be perceived.
Interest in binaural beats can be classified into two categories. First, they are of interest to neurophysiologists investigating the sense of hearing. Second, some protoscientists believe that binaural beats may influence the brain in more subtle ways through the entrainment of brainwaves and can be used to produce relaxation and other health benefits.
Supposedly, using I-doser, you may be able to experience effects similar to those perceived when using drugs. Its 100% legal, but not 100% free. Visit http://www.i-doser.com/ for more information, and to download some samples and see if it works for you.
