The Modulated 40 Hz Signal

The 40 Hz modulated signal is based on the observation that a 40 Hz signal is evident in EEG recordings taken both during normal, waking consciousness, and during REM sleep. It doesn’t appear in non-REM sleep. It has been called the “binding factor” for human consciousness, including states of consciousness.

It’s based on the ’40 hertz component’ seen in EEG readouts. This signal appears when we are awake and when we are dreaming, but not in dreamless sleep. In other words, it’s present whenever we are conscious. The name “binding factor” for human consciousness, suggests that this is the activity that “holds it all together”. The modulated 40 Hz signal is almost in sync with the brain’s own binding factor, but not quite. It’s just different enough to interact with it; to disturb it slightly. When that happens, alterations happen which are as much alterations in consciousness itself as they are “altered states of consciousness”.

The speed at which it circles through the 8 pairs of coils is also designed to interact with the binding factor by moving the signals from one pair to the next at almost the same frequency the binding factor sweeps through the brain. Just different enough in frequency to alter the binding factor instead of being masked by it.

This signal is based on a pattern developed by Dr. M.A. Persinger, and is validated with empirical laboratory results obtained there.

In the God Helmet software there is a link to run a session using this signal on this page.
