ACS "Acoustical Resonances of Assorted Ancient Structures", R. G. Jahn, P. Devereux, and M. Ibison (1996) "Rudimentary acoustical measurements performed inside six diverse Neolithic structures revealed that each sustained a strong resonance at a frequency between 95 and 120 Hz. Despite major differences in chamber shapes and sizes, the resonant modal patterns all featured strong antinodes at the outer walls, with appropriately configured nodes and antinodes interspersed toward the central source. In some cases, interior and exterior rock drawings resembled these acoustical patterns. Since the resonant frequencies are well within the adult male voice range, one may speculate that some forms of human chanting, enhanced by the cavity resonance, were invoked for ritual purposes."

  • I'm still collecting information on this source. I learned about it from MM, which acts as a secondary source. This is another source that likely used an EM device rather than sound or vibration.

EWI An unpublished work done by Dr. Edgar Wilson & students of the Monroe Institute who were attempting to have an out-of-body experience. He found that as the students moved out-of-the-body, their beta activity increased dramatically at T3 and/or T4 with the highest amplitudes appearing at 22 & 40 -Hz. (John F. Gilbert, Ph.D. & Robert Moroney, D.A., CPPS.)

FAH Dr. Steven Fahrion presented a paper a couple of years ago concerning his work with healers and reported much the same results (as EWI). Perhaps these papers will be published at some future date. (John F. Gilbert, Ph.D. and Robert Moroney, D.A., CPPS.)

MPT Hey, this denotes the frequencies I calculated by myself for the revolutions of the various asteroids. I'm not going to claim said tones have some funky new-age meaning, although they would be the actual "tones" of the asteroid's revolution, risen to a high enough octave to be heard as a sound. I generated the frequencies of the asteroids using the following method :

  • Step 1) Find a table that gives the revolution times of the asteroids (most give them in years).

  • Step 2) Divide 1 by the number of years an asteroid takes to complete a revolution. (This will give you the fraction of a revolution it completes in one year.)

  • Step 3) Divide by 365 (fraction of revolution in one day). Then divide by 24 (fraction of revolution in one hour). Then divide by 60 (fraction of revolution in one minute). And divide by 60 again (fraction of revolution in one second).

  • Step 4) So, you're left with the amount of the revolution an asteroid completes in one second. Since this frequency is very small, you need to raise it until it's into the range of audible sound. Now, begin doubling the number - this raises its octave. Higher octaves have a higher pitch, but are the same note. Keep doubling the value until it's 100 HZ or higher. (I find sometimes lower-pitched tones have more impact than the higher-pitched ones, which can drive you bonkers if they're -too- high.)

MWH Natural Healing - Sound Therapy, Miracle Wellness House (website) -

  • One thing that should be established about their Chakra system is they actually have the chakras repeating up through the various octaves. Each of the octaves represent a particular level of connection to things. The octave I included here is associated with the physical body, according to the website. Refer the table on their website for the significance of the higher octaves. (I didn't think it would be good to clutter up the frequency list including every last octave worth of chakras.)

NOR "Science Measures The Human Energy Field", Nature's Own Research Association [Jim and Nora Oschman], article posted on this website :

  • They attribute the frequencies listed in their article to the research of a fellow named Dr. John Zimmerman, who was testing out the effects of therapeutic touch on the biomagnetic field of the human body. He in turn supposedly got these 'frequency windows of specifity for the healing of different tissues' from independent studies done by other researchers. (So, I'll have to do some additional digging to figure out who these other researchers are.)

OML Chakra Reference Chart, http://OMLOGOS.COM

  • The chart seems to imply that higher octaves of those frequencies also are associated with the chakras mentioned, since it uses them in a musical context, saying that the Crown chakra is associated with the "musical series of B", for example.

PL Power of Limits (see Accords chart) for colors and notes.

  • There's some dispute over whether the color frequencies are accurate. (Note to self - research this one further.) It was mentioned on the Brainwave Generator message board these were wavelength values, not frequencies, technically. Here's the message that began the thread (look near the bottom of the message) :

  • The entry at 3HZ was a reference to experiments conducted by Glen Solomon in the 80s using a device called a Dzidra Glass. This was a visual means of brainwave entrainment, rather than an audio means.

  • The entry at 10HZ was a reference to experiments conducted by Norman Shealy, who studied the effects of 10 HZ photic stimulation. (brainwave entrainment using pulsing lights rather than sound)

Electrical wave forms - "One of the benefits of working with electrical stimulation is the ability to generate precise and complex waveforms. It is likely that specific waveforms have specific functions. Brain stimulation, frequencies and waveforms are a vast and promising field of experimentation for alchemists."
