Just a thought I 've had as I’ve seen a few questions about “what is the Th-G synch” on this Forum, and also a few comments saying Alpha state is the same as Th-G Synch.
That could be- as different authors use different terms, to mean the same, or perhaps are just loose in their terms, but
the Alpha range state (sort of drowsy drifting kind of focus) in my exper is distinct from
the Theta range state (a sense of Visions seen just on the edge of Attn- if you try and “hard focus” to look at, mind state changes- as if they are not on the same “visiual screen”… associated with a type of tactile-felt decoding of what is being “sensed” as if remmebering something “on the tip of the tongue”… which can get confused and garbled if the physical sensations is thought of and blended- per focus shift)
but being in this Theta, like the razors edge (as one writer put it it seems like motionless, but is like being a seagull appearing motionless in the wind that is blowing up a dune- where the seagull’s wings are constantly shifting and adjusting to hold steady… slight effort, but only works if that adjusting-effort is effortless) -holding this state, there is a shift from sensing a state, to it stabilizing and reinforcing itself (but you can still “pop-out” at that pt)
If-when held in this pt, you can sense (at some pt, length depends upon your system, not on Efforting in anyway- just wait and exper your “Sensing the Unseen” while simul being aware of Enviro- the 2 blend… over time this happens faster, but adjusting to it)… there are these spikes, sort of vague but distinct whoosh senses… which are brief Gamma jolts
Each of these can pop you out of Theta, or cause you to focus inside and loose awareness of Enviro, trigger body response or Mind-Chatter, breakdown in to trying to make it happen (Beta State jump)... if-when these spikes happen and you sense them, but let them go by and flood change your state (like slipping into a Lucid Dream- not too deep or lose focus but not grab hold, drift in.. which alters your Awareness state).. thus you are in a state which has Theta and Gamma Spikes.
Now in that state- the 2 (thetat state and Gamma Spikes) occur separately, but they can Synch up.. ie a third state arises that is InFormed by both..
That 3rd state is (or what it produces results in) the Th-G Synch
I then sense a certain “direction” to Look with Mind, kind of like glancing around this dir and that… and then spotting a landmark-pt. “look” (in quotes per look- being focus attn on something, but not on a “thought IN your mind” but something sensed by the Mind…
- like look different directions and in one dir you’ll sense Something)… feel how seeing that affects your phy, then through your phy your Enviro… how that resonance in your Enviro then affects your Phy… which can help you See that more… until things get weird (things dim and yet get sharply focused- and mind thinks different- I sure don’t get the usual recall everything that happened after- its like what happened… it sort of all happens at once (in memory of it) and during certain parts are highlighted and interpreted differently… so even the “enviro” room you are familiar with is the Same, but looks-feels different…
So I sense some saying the relaxation, or fasting or repetitive focus all helping release focus of the “usual mind” - and I think one can drift that way (espec if uncon resisting it, thus the techniques), but it seems to me not all “altered-hypno type mind states” are the same. -diff , even though helps (like the Silva Mind Control- techs many bks later ‘reused’ is an Alpha like state, or even Theta with Beta state focus)…
Also relaxation and altered mind focus are applied tools, as in the Divination course where EA goes into the state within seconds while talking to the camera… was that from practicing relaxation, so relaxed that quick?
or is the relaxation secondary, and more the mind state- just don’t interfere with the CNS refocusing
the Rapture is physiological, and in that state I believe strongly affects bloodchem… would be interesting to test and see how)- as well as Nerves through the limbs&torso, let alone the Nervers in the Brain&spine
I hope this helps and might further stim discussion-exploration…
