The four coil Shakti unit is best
suited to gradual transformation, meditation enhancement and
spiritual experiences. They can utilize 16 signals, placed
over 5 areas of the brain for a range of effects.
Shakti For Windows is available with four coils. The four
coil version takes advantage of both stereo channels so that
different signals can be applied to each side of the brain.
The signals used with the
four coil units are 'static'. This is less effective than
the more dynamic, alternating signals in the 8 Coil System,
but still can create some very worthwhile results.
4 Coil units
The 8 Coil Shakti is designed to
facilitate intense spiritual experiences. It's the closest
to the "Koren Helmet" featured in many television
documentaries about alien abductions, near-death experiences
and the paranormal. This is the newest version of this technology
to be made available. It can utilize twelve different alternating
signals applied over four areas of your head, and 16 additional,
Alternating (or rotating)
the signals between the two pairs of coils greatly amplifies
the power of this technology.
8 Coil Shakti system is the manufacturer's suggested device.
It has more signals and
combinations of signals, as well as coils that can be moved,
making it the most versatile Shakti System. It does not use
a helmet, but it works on the same principles as the helmet
shown in TV documentaries and reported in the scientific literature.
a BBC report:
"How does Dr. Persinger artificially induce religious
experiences in his patients?"
Dr. Persinger has designed a
helmet that produces 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."
