Brainwaves between 4-7 Hz and the end of metaphysical questions

Frequency range


Usually associated with:

> 40 Hz

Gamma waves

Higher mental activity, including perception, problem solving, fear, and consciousness

13–40 Hz

Beta waves

Active, busy or anxious thinking and active concentration, arousal, cognition

7–13 Hz

Alpha waves

Relaxation (while awake), pre-sleep and pre-wake drowsiness

4–7 Hz

Theta waves

Dreams, deep meditation, REM sleep


Delta waves

Deep dreamless sleep, loss of body awareness

What if all my questions are the wrong questions?

I think they are! They are Beta- and Gamma-questions. What if God is found in the Theta-range? I think she is... (another Gamma-question)

Here are some of my old questions. They are metaphysical in nature and metaphysics is a probably a dead end since they are all in a vibration-range where the answers are not be found. Humans have entertained the discipline of Metaphysics for thousands of years, and they have gotten nothing out of it, except a massive pile of bullshit and endless discussions about what bullshit is the best bullshit.

A sample of Björns metaphysical questions?

Is there actually something called spiritual awakening? Sounds appealing but not likely.

What is the dream character? Probably all I can ever know.

Is it true that dream characters can't wake up? Probably

If dream characters can't wake up, who can? The true dreamer? What would that be? Some metaphysical concept like consciousness? Doesn't make sense.

Is there some other character “behind” the dream character? Sounds spooky. I don't believe in souls. What if there is a soul? What if being this soul and waking up is just another dream? It probably is.

All my answers are probably as wrong as the questions themselves.

Is there a “brain state” where metaphysical questions fall away? The answer is yes. I've been there. The state is described in scientific literature. It's where brainwaves vibrate with a frequency between 4-7 Hz – The Theta-range. I think we can touch upon this question-answer-free-zone in deep relaxation between 7 and 10 Hz is.

How to get into deep meditation? Well, probably by meditating. I have tried out some Binaural beat technologies and they are a great help.

This whole spiritual Merry-go-round business is all about lack of knowledge about how the brain works. God, Nirvana, Tao, whatever, will NEVER be found in the Alpha and Gamma range. Never. God and Nirvana are Theta and Delta phenomena. We could say that God hides in our brains in the Theta-range.

  1. If you're into freaky frequencies, check this out:


    But seriously, how do you KNOW that this idea of a "brain" has any substance at all? Because "some one else" some scientist guy, said so? Because you have received audiovisual information regarding something called "the human brain"? What have you actually seen? Have you ever seen your own brain? And even if you had, would seeing necessarily mean believing that what is being seen is "true"?

  2. Actually, this is a rather good article for our purposes:


    And, as some alleged science guy called Amber, who reportedly spent his last days on an island, once said:

    "Any experience of awakening is a false experience. Those who offer or describe such experiences are those who offer and describe experience."

  3. And he also said:

    "Quoting sages is what children learn in school. Leave the classroom - none of it will help. Find out for yourself."

    So, yeah, there it is.


  4. I've spent some hours now on the Shakti technology site. Really interesting stuff. I'll check out the other link tomorrow.
    What have I learned? Nothing new actually. I already knew that "I" am an hallucination. But didn't remember that this hallucination is produced in the left hippocampus - the verbal hippocampus. The information also made Jill Bolte Taylors claim that Nirvana is in the right brain hemisphere seem too simplistic. Why is then the right amygdala, center of negativ and unpeasant emotions situated in Nirvana?? Maybe Jills stroke took out even her right amygdala? I don't know.

  5. Björn, have you actually done spiritual autolysis in the way it is recommended? Say that you start with the statement "I have a brain" and then try to disprove that, and see on what grounds you base the belief that "you" "have" something called "a brain"? Not that it ultimately matters, I suppose (time for that löprunda)...

    This is back to basics, but surely you are familiar with http://www.headless.org/?

  6. Or the statement that "I" is a hallucination, for that matter. How is this known?

    And "recommended" is probably not the right word. More like "suggested"... :-)

  7. Do I have a brain? Good question :-) I guess that's what is called a NO BRAINER ... :-)

    I like nobrainers.
