8-Coil Shakti Headset With Software For Windows
Shakti Neural technology can be used to get
into altered states of consciousness, though the standard
are geared to produce one specific kind - the more introspective,
calmer, detached kind. These are often called 'theta' states
because the brain produces theta-rythm when these states
of conscoiusness are going on. Trance and silent forms
of meditation are associated with theta activity.
Although the best known modality for psychic
is 'seeing', which implies visual perception, there
are other. Some
psychics have their perceptions appearing through their
own thoughts. Others have a sensation appear in their
bodies. Other have a simple sense of 'knowing' that
doesn't form into clear perceptions but that still
allow them to understand the answer to their inquiry.
It's been laboratory
tested and found to elicit psychic perceptions, These include
relaxation, meditation, trance, hypnosis, and the Athlete's

I'm looking at right now is creating a real thinking cap." Graham
Phillips reports on amazing Australian research into developing
scientific tools that can enhance non-conscious problem-solving.
The work is based on the study of "savant syndrome".
People with severe mental disorders who can exhibit extraordinary
talents in the field of art, music or mathematics. Professor
Allan Snyder believes that savant type abilities "reside
equally in all of us." He believes we all have access
to this fundamental mechanism but with our higher order
cognitive processing we are unable to tap into it.
Researchers have found that healthy volunteers showed
similar talents when parts of their brains were briefly "switched
off", some volunteers were capable of "savant" abilities.
As Phillips reports, Snyder's 'thinking cap' actually
exists - when placed on the wearer's head, it is able to
temporarily switch off the brain, and clear the way to
the hidden talents that could lie inside. Will it work
for our intrepid reporter?
Ingo Swann, a remote viewer once employed by government
agencies who are not specifically named in the research
paper, participated in his series of neurological tests
with Dr. Michael Persinger, and the other authors of
this paper. Two experiments were done with remote viewing.
The first experiment was done by putting 16 pictures
and four objects into manilla envelopes. They were
selected by a the person knew it never met Ingo Swann
and who had no other role in the experiment. They were
told to select pictures with strong emotional themes.
After the objects and pictures of been selected they
were divided into groups of six. Several rooms away,
a researcher took out one of the envelopes and put
it on a table. He oriented the envelope the way Ingo
Swann had asked, and the research paper even gives
the size of the table (8,100 cm).
Ingo Swann was told when a picture was on the table,
and he would endeavor to view it remotely. Sitting
with a sketch pad, he would draw the images that
came to him, and then he would ask for another picture.
The other experiment consisted of Ingo Swann
remote viewing a pair of the researchers who had
two pictures randomly selected from a group of nine,
all of which depicted places in and around the city
where the research took place. Once they had arrived
at two locations, the researchers "observed" the
place for 15 minutes.
As in the first experiment, Ingo Swann made drawings
as he remotely viewed the two researchers. A group
of a 44 undergraduate students, who knew nothing
about the experiment, were given the job of rating
the similarities between the drawings and the pictures
of the places as well as the drawings of the pictures
and objects - the ones in the manilla envelopes.
They also rated the similarity between the content
of Swann's drawings and photographs of the places
the researchers had visited. In addition, they also
rated the similarities between the emotional connotations
of the words Ingo Swann used, and the mood of the
photos. A picture of a tornado, for example could
be called dark and threatening, but not warm and
While this was going on, he also received neural
stimulation using the "octopus", as well
as EEG monitoring
What if you could
become a savant for a few minutes? Australian National
University neuroscientist Allan Snyder says
you can. Snyder induced instantaneous "jelly-bean
counting" skills in normal people using transcranial
magnetic stimulation. He used the powerful magnetic pulses
to zap the brains of 12 volunteers, disrupting activity
in the left anterior frontal lobe, an area where damage
is known to cause sudden savant syndrome. For an hour
or so after treatment, 10 of the volunteers were twice
as accurate in guessing at a glance the number of dots
flashed on a computer screen. "This is an extraordinarily
good result—I'm amazed it came out so well," Snyder
When Snyder used the same technique three years ago to
induce episodes of savantlike artistic ability in ordinary
people, skeptics objected to his claims, saying that artistic
abilities were too subjective to judge. But numbers don't
lie, says Eric Wassermann of the National Institute of
Neurological Disorders and Stroke. "There's nothing
that looks bogus about it."

"For several years, Persinger has been using
technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation
to induce all sorts of surreal experiences in
ordinary people (New Scientist, 19 November
1994, p 29). Through trial and error and a bit
of educated guesswork, he's found that a weak
magnetic field--1 microtesla, which is roughly
that generated by a computer monitor--rotating
anticlockwise in a complex pattern about the
temporal lobes will cause four out of five people
to feel a spectral presence in the room with them."
"How does Dr Persinger artificially induce
experiences in his patients?
"Dr Persinger has designed a helmet that
a very weak rotating magnetic field of between ten
nanotesla and one microtesla over the temporal
lobes of the brain. This is placed on the subject's
head and they are placed in a quiet chamber
while blindfolded. So that there is no risk of
'suggestion', the only information that the subjects
are given is that they are going in for a relaxation
experiment. Neither the subject nor the experimenter
carrying out the test has any idea of the true purpose
of the experiment. In addition to this, the experiment
is also run with the field switched both off and on.
This procedure Dr Persinger claims will induce an
experience in over 80% of test subjects."
The power of
moving magnetic signals is illustrated in one study where
3 volunteers were given LSD and were given sessions with
the Koren Helmet. When the coils were moving, the subjects
saw "blobs of white, purplish, or greenish-yellow
lights ". When the magnets (ordinary horseshoe magnets,
not the coils or signals used in Shakti For Windows) weren't
moving, the subjects didn't see these lights. And those
were common magnets, not much different from the kind you
might have on your refrigerator................
The God Helmet is a popular name given to
a laboratory apparatus more correctly called the "Koren
Helmet", after Stanley Koren of Laurentian University's
Neuroscience Department, who built it according to specifications
provided by Dr. M.A. Persinger, it's director.
"I asked Dr. Persinger
how many people had seen God using the Koren Helmet,
and this is what he said
"The problem is producing an environment
in which people will report what they experience

chamber (The acoustic chamber where the experimental
sessions took place). Most of these people used Christ
and God interchangeably. Most of these individuals
were older (30 years or more) and religious (Roman
Catholic). One male, age about 35 years old (alleged
atheist but early childhood RC (Roman Catholic) training),
saw a clear apparition (shoulders and head) of Christ
staring him in the face. He was quite "shaken" by
the experience. I did not complete a follow-up re:
his change in behavior. Of course these are all reports.
What we did find with one world-class psychic who
experiences Christ as a component of his abilities
was we could experimentally increase or decrease
his numbers of his reported experiences by applying
the LTP pattern (derived from the hippocampus) over
the right hemisphere (without his awareness)."
Used as a research
tool to investigate the brain's role in religious and mystic
experiences, the Koren Helmet has
been given the name God Helmet. A few Journalists gave
it this name when they learned that some people had visions
of God while participating in Koren Helmet experiments.
The name has stuck, 80% of the subjects felt a presence
of some kind, but did not call it God. Of course, there
some subjects who experienced an appearance of God, but
were shy about saying they had seen God in a laboratory.
That kind of thing is not only intensely personal, but
can also get you ridiculed.

God and the Brain - The Persinger 'God Helmet',
The Brain, and visions of God.
by Todd Murphy
This talk, called "God and the
Brain", is a discussion of the Persinger "God
Helmet" (actually the Koren Helmet) and the
8 Coil Shakti. It covers visions of God, Near-Death
and other themes in neurotheology, the field that
integrates neuroscience and spirituality. This
is the first of
six lectures on Spirituality and the Brain by Todd
Murphy, inventor of the 8 Coil Shakti and the Shiva
Neural Stimulation system, which duplicates the
procedures used in the God Helmet experiments.
He has been a
member of Laurentian University's Behavioral Neuroscience
research group, under the direction of Dr. M. A.
Understanding Psychic Skills
There were a series of experiments, which we look
at on a page in the software that demonstrated the
accuracy of some psychic reports. On this page, we're
not going to ask if psychic skills are 'real'. We're
going to make the assumption that they are, knowing
that there are many who make the opposite assumption.
Now, using the tremendous power that a good assumption
confers on those who accept it, we can ask how psychic
skills work. There are several assumptions we have
to make in order to explain how psychic skills work.
In doing so, we go a bit beyond the scope of the
studies that inspired the Shiva neural stimulation
Although the underlying mechanisms for all such
perceptions are very similar, different psychic skills
call for different explanations. Remote viewing and
telepathy involve perception in spite of spatial
distances, while precognition involves seeing things
in spite of temporal distance.
Let's look at remote viewing and telepathy first.
The best way to start is to define the words.
Telepathy is "... a significant correlation between specific
components of the behavior of a stimulus person and
of a response person" (Persinger).
Remote viewing is "... awareness of distant
objects or places without employing normal senses" (Persinger).
Precognition is "Awareness of events which
occur after their perception" (Author).
These aren't absolute definitions. They're only
intended to give us working definitions for this
one article. There are many psychics would would
offer different definitions, and there are other
researchers who have their own way of seeing things.
These are taken from some of the research publications
describing the technology Shiva Neural Stimulation
is based on.
Your brain produces electrical signals as
it operates. Shakti For Windows applies magnetic
signals to your head that mimic these signals. Because
some brain structures have known 'signatures', they
can be 'targeted' by applying their signature signals.
EEG (electroencephalography) reads the electrical
activity from the brain, and it's 'traces' are the
original source for most of the signals used in Shakti
Most Shakti signals
are derived from EEG traces
The target structures respond to these signals
and, to a lesser extent, other structures connected to

Each brain is different,
and there are many ways to use SHAKTI For Windows.
Your experiences will depend on what you're prone to,
and the choices you make in using it.
Not everyone is equally
sensitive to this kind of mind-machine, but the Shakti
project yielded observations that can help slow starters
With the 8-Coil Shakti, you can activate
your brain, one part at a time. If you like the altered
a particular session brings up, you can repeat it (with
specific schedules) often enough that your brain 'learns'
to access the effects on it's own. If you don't like
the effects of a particular session, don't repeat it.
One of the ways this technology has
been effective is as a meditation enhancement. Meditation
can be improved when sessions are done so that they end
about an hour beforehand. The same thing has been reported
by people who are using other mind-machines after their
Shakti sessions. Using other mind machines, or doing
meditation during Shakti sessions doesn't work as well.
The 8-coil Shakti can induce induce spiritual experiences
and transformation for many people when used according
to instructions. It's also a powerful tool for consciousness
The 8-Coil Shakti represents a new
generation of a technology developed at Laurentian University's
Behavioral Neurosciences Program, under the direction
of Dr. Michael A. Persinger. In laboratory settings,
this class of technology had succeeded in inducing experiences
that people call religious, spiritual, or mystical.
This refers to deep states of relaxation as well as 'visions', enhancements
in dreaming, mood elevations, and a whole range of 'special' experiences.
DOES THE 8-COIL SHAKTI WORK?
(and it's predecessors) rely on a simple idea. It started
with two EEG (electroencephalograph) signals taken from
parts of the brain that are known to be involved in religious
experiences (the amygdala and the hippocampus). These
two structures turn out to be where the seizures begin
in epileptics who had blissful or visionary seizures
(not a common type of seizure, but it does exist). In
addition to these two sigals, several others have been
added, including one from the caudate nucleus (a structure
that relaxes on one side and energizes on the other).
Others are derived from frequencies or mixes of frequencies
that appear when EEG signals are 'averaged'.
These EEG signals were converted into data
files, and eventually into audio files, which play
out through a sound card.
Instead of being played through speakers
or headphones, they are 'played' through a set
of magnetic coils, which produces magnetic signals
instead of sounds.
Their magnetic signals 'match' the electrical
signals from the structures we work with. As a
Shakti session proceeds, these structures become
more and more active.
It uses additional principles,
which you can learn about HERE
For most people, 10 minutes later, they start to feel something.
Half an hour into the session, that feeling becomes stronger,
and it begins to shape the person's experience, if the session
is successful. Sensory deprivation helps elicit effects during

In fact, it's crucial for intense sessions. A large portion
of the temporal lobe's ongoing activity is devoted to monitoring
ambient sounds. Silence is an important part of any sessions
intended to create powerful experiences. Above all, relax
during your Shakti sessions. Expectation 'tasks' the frontal
lobes, and their activation can stand in the way of 'going
