  1. DeepVision sessions for the Procyon available now

    Neuroasis created a small group of visual-only sessions for the Procyon DeepVision ganzware. If you are interested in flicker induced visual imagery, these are, in my opinion, generate the most complex visual imagery I've ever experienced with AVS. And, they're free! You can download them from the Procyon support page:

    Enjoy!

  2. DeepVision Ganzwear for Procyon are now available

    Hello, all--

    We've just started shipping our new DeepVision glasses for the Procyon; these are basically identical to the Kasina version, except in that case, the LEDs on the right side are in opposite phase to those on the left.

    Scott has been working on a batch of sessions intended for use with the DV, with intense visual imagery as the main goal. And in my experience with them, he's achieved that goal.

    Though I tend to keep brightness at maximum ...
  3. New Procyon review on Youtube

    Greetings, all--

    We've recently learned that Carrie Searley, producer at UK-pop.com, has created a Procyon review for their upcoming TV series, "The Unearthly Hour", which she has just posted on youtube.

    She makes the interesting suggestion that the somewhat psychedelic imagery that most of us see when using the Procyon (and other AVS systems) is due to the lights causing the pineal gland to produce small amounts of DMT in the brain...

    Enjoy!

  4. Introducing the MindPlace Environmental Lighting System

    Imagine using your Procyon or Kasina to turn an entire wall, ceiling, chill room into an open-eyes full color mind machine... or having several people simultaneously share the brightest 'eyes-closed' experience imaginable. Well, now you can do that with our new MindPlace Environmental Lighting System (MELS). We have one set up in our office, and it's most impressive.

    It consists of a custom-designed, 72 watt power supply and a high powered RGB LED array, plus required connecting ...
  5. Announcing the Kasina mind media system!

    Our latest light and sound system has finally entered production! Nearly three years in the making, the Kasina features a built in MP3 player, color LCD display, rechargeable lithium battery, a micro SD card slot and an 8 GB memory card. The GanzFrames are a new design, featuring three blue, two green and one red LED per eye, for a richer, more intense visual experience.

    The audio files are encoded with a proprietary new technology called SpectraStrobe?, which enables independent ...
  6. Using external audio with your ThoughtStream USB system

    It can sometimes be helpful to listen to both the ThoughtStream's internal audio and other audio content, such as relaxing nature sounds, guided meditations, and the like. Though the ThoughtStream does not have an audio input jack, it turns out that the solution is a simple one. All you need is a stereo audio splitter (1/8" plug to 2 1/8" stereo jacks) and an audio patch cord, such as the one included with Proteus and Procyon. Just plug the splitter into the ThoughtStream audio output, ...
  7. New content on SoundCloud: Craig Tice

    Craig Tice (CraigT) has given us permission to share some of his AudioStrobe-encoded audio tracks, which you can find at www.soundcloud.com/mindplace. He's taken a different approach to AS encoding than Scott Hendrickson: Scott wrote his own audio software plug-ins for this purpose, while Craig uses Mind Workstation (and these tracks are great illustrations of how you could use MWS to create your own content). Craig uses modulated noise to make the AS tracks, lending them a somewhat 'fizzy' or ...
  8. Larry Paros at the NTF

    I'm in process of posting another video lecture from the 1992 Neurotechnology Forum on Youtube (in four parts, as usual), this time by Dr. Larry Paros. In his talk, Larry discusses various applications for Cranial Electro-Stimulation (CES), a technology which sends tiny pulses of electricity through the brain, apparently causing shifts in aspects of neuronal and cognitive functions.

    Taken together, this series of lectures provides an excellent snapshot and time capsule of what ...
  9. Battle of the Colors

    Some of us remember the light shows pioneered back in the late 50s, that were especially popular additions to rock shows in the latter 60s. Though a number of techniques were used, from film strips to strobes, the most popular was perhaps the 'wet show', in which drops of colored water were added to dishes of oil (or vice-versa), and manipulated in various ways. The results were projected onto a screen, and no doubt contributed to the altered states of consciousness experienced by many concert-goers ...

  10. Defining Magick

    Magick is the art and science of mastering the mind. There is no religion in magick, though there is heavy use of symbolism (often confused with religion or the occult). The symbolism is useful, it helps direct the mind and associate ideas. The key is not to get caught up in the symbolism and mistake it for reality.


    The infamous Aleister Crowley was the first person to coin the term "Magick" and his definition is: "Magick is the Science of causing Change to occur ...
