stimulate your senses
The Little House was created to boost the connection that we have with our inner and outer selves. It is also a platform to elevate our frequencies. We've made this possible through various features that stimulate your senses. We offer this interactive experience by providing a continuously evolving blank canvas generated by the viewers themselves.
What is it?
Binaural beats are auditory brain-stem responses which originate in the superior olivary nucleus of each brain hemisphere. They result from two different auditory impulses or sounds, heard from opposite ears. This binaural beat is consciously heard as the human hearing range is from 20-20,000 Hz. Rather it is perceived as an auditory beat and theoretically is being used coach certain brain rhythms from what is called the frequency-following response (the tendency for the brain to resonate at the frequency of an external stimulus). You don’t need any special skills or practice to meditate using binaural beats, just a pair of headphones and an MP3 player!
How does it work on the brain?
When signals of two different frequencies (sounds) are presented, one to each ear, the brain detects phase differences between these signals. The brain processes this anomalous information differently when these phase differences are heard with stereo headphones or speakers. A perceptual integration of the two signals in perceived in the brain, producing the sensation of a third “beat”. The difference between the signals waxes and wanes (this is the “wavy” sound heard in the hypnotic sessions) as the two stereo sounds mesh in and out of phase. The binaural beat is perceived as a fluctuating rhythm at the frequency of the difference between the two auditory inputs.
HOW DOES IT CREATE A HYPNOTIC RESPONSE?
Binaural beats can easily be heard at the low frequencies (< 30 Hz) that are characteristic of the EEG spectrum (Oster, 1973). This perceptual phenomenon of binaural beating and the objective measurement of the frequency-following response (Hink, Kodera, Yamada, Kaga, & Suzuki, 1980) suggest conditions which generate brain waves activity and altered states of consciousness (hypnotic trance).
> 40 HzGamma waves: Higher mental activity, including perception, problem solving, fear, and consciousness.
13–39 HzBeta waves: Active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration, arousal, cognition, and or paranoia.
7–13 HzAlpha waves: Relaxation (while awake), pre-sleep and pre-wake drowsiness, REM sleep, Dreams.
8–12 HzMu waves: Sensorimotor rhythm, Mu_rhythm.
4–7 HzTheta waves: Deep meditation/relaxation, NREM sleep.
< 4 HzDelta waves: Deep dreamless sleep, loss of body awareness.
