The Power of Sound:

                                                                                 How can sound do what you are implying?
Most simply put, we are striving to use architectural acoustics to achieve a change in brain function which can result in physiological benefits as well as priming portions of the brain responsible for experiences of enlightenment and awe. From the neuroscientific perspective, our starting point for this endeavor is to strive for an  altered state of consciousness relative to normal brain function. This may be accomplished in one means by manipulating the state of brainwaves which helps to synchronize the hemispheres of the brain.
Alternatively, by either increasing or decreasing activity in specific regions of the brain, one may also begin to shift the functional state of consciousness.
 
One means of classifying modes of consciousness relative to brainwave activity is by the frequencies associated with waking/sleep states. To clarify, measurable frequencies of brainwaves define certain states of consciousness. These classifications can be studied in the Brainwave States section below
Brainwave States

 

 

begin with the Beta state representing a normal wakeful mental state and lying within the frequency range of 13-30 Hz. As one relaxes towards sleep, the brain frequency slows to the range of 8-13 Hz and enters the Alpha state. Within the realm of sleep, the brain first experiences the Theta state between 4-8 Hz and finally the Delta state at a frequency below 4 Hz. The Theta state represents dreaming sleep while Delta is a state of deep, dreamless sleep.
