Dr. Robert Beck zum Braintuner 1983
History of Cranial Electrical Stimulation (CES) Technology
and the Development of the Beck Brain Tuner, 1983
Paul Tyler, who was at that time Chief of the Defense Nuclear
Agency, Radiological Defense, usually picks me up at the airport in Washington
and takes me back to the plane. Last February he said, "Bob have you
seen the article in the January Omni magazine on Meg Patterson's magic black
box?" I said, "Ya."
He said, "Well aren't you interested?" I said, "Ya."
He said, "Well while you're out in California," he said, "why
don't you look her up and see if there's anything we can do for her to get
this thing broken loose and into the mainstream".
Now this was an honest effort by Paul Tyler... to be of assistance to Meg.
So when I got to Los Angeles I gave her a call, introduced myself... She
said, "Well I cannot talk to anyone, I have a contractual arrangement
with the NET Neuro Electric Therapy Group". At that time they
were near the John Wayne Airport. "But under the circumstances we can
call a meeting."
Well this was, perhaps, one of the most remarkable meetings I have ever
attended in my entire life. At one end of the table was the principle investor
who at this time had raised about 3½ million dollars to develop the
"Black Box Brain Tuner" - the neural electrotherapy device.
There were three of the staff scientists and the president of the financial
company called TLC.
A very bad analogy, the middle word was leverage, I think it was Turner
Leverage Corporation, it had nothing to do with tender loving care. Meg
had been brought to this company in August of 1981 to develop the device,
which had been built for her by Shackman Instruments in England.
The history of this is that Meg Patterson, while working as an abdominal
surgeon at the Tung Wa Hospital in Hong Kong, had come across Dr.
Wen and his use of electro-acupuncture for anesthesia. Dr.
Wen had discovered, quite accidentally, that many of his patients were
on heroin. At this time 1970-1972, a $500 a day habit in the United
States would cost less than a pack of cigarettes in Hong Kong. And about
20% of the gross population that would go through the Tung Wa Hospital in
Hong Kong were heroin addicts.
So doing hundreds of surgeries a month, a certain percentage of these people
who were heroin addicts began to report, "I'm not feeling any discomfort.
I don't have withdrawal pains. I seem to have an altered state." They
would go back on the street after surgery, get a fix from their usual 'mother'
and find that the fix had not given them the same effect. There were a number
of fights because they thought their heroin was being cut, etc., but it
was a very interesting political situation.
The Addiction Withdrawal Process (part1 4:13)
So, Dr. Wen did what any good scientist would do, he began doing rat studies
- mega rats. I'll digress for a moment here and say that heroin or opiates
as a class - opium, morphine, heroin and the number of the synthetics that
are manufactured in the ethical pharmaceutical houses - simply overload
the body's production of normal endorphins.
was discovered around 1975 as a painkiller
the body manufactures. It is about 100 times as effective as morphine
as a painkiller. When you don't have it you get the aches and pains, the withdrawal,
the stomach cramps, the nausea, the insomnia, all of these horrible things
that attend withdrawal.
When you give your body massive doses, or even small doses in the beginning,
of any of the opiates the part of the brain that says, 'build neural transmitters,'
simply says, 'shut down we have too much.' So, when you get off of the substance,
when you try to kick it cold turkey, the body is in agony because those little
factories in the brain simply don't produce the endorphins.
The word endorphin comes from en: endogenous and orphin: after morphine. It
simply means endogenous or built-in morphine. About five or six years ago
there were some 40 known neuro-transmitters
, seratonin being one of
the most famous. At this time there are over 2,000
that have been identified
and they're still counting.
So, the brain is an exceedingly complex little factory. Remember the days
in school when they said, "Well you're worth about five dollars, you've
got two pounds of salt, some potassium, some carbon, some hydrogen".
Try to buy a gram of interferon for under 8 to 10,000 dollars
body is far more complex than this set of chemicals that we held so dear in
What Dr. Wen did was to hook rats on heroin, have two groups: one control
and one active. He would cut off the heads of the rats and run chromatography
(electrophoresis chromatography) to find out what some of these trace proteins
were in the control and the sample.
The rats that had been hooked on heroin and suddenly cut off
miserable rats. They showed that it took maybe a week to three weeks
before the neuro-transmitters would again reappear - the exact range of time
that the withdrawal symptoms occupy somebody coming off the narcotic.
The rats taken off heroin cold turkey and then stimulated with two little
... were given electro-stimulation around 111 hertz
that within 40 minutes
of the time that the voltage was applied,
the brain's ability to produce it's own neuro-transmitters had been rehabilitated
and that within three to five days it had reached normal
The Politics of Health and Addictive Substances (part1
Now the implications of this were rather stunning. How many people do we have
in this country who are on valium - librium, uppers, downers - legal narcotics
that are highly addictive
. You probably remember that during the American
Civil War, when morphine was invented to replace some of the other opiates,
they said, "Oh, here we have a pain killer that is totally non-addictive".
They've said this about almost every other drug that has seen the light of
day. In fact, boys and girls, if it isn't addictive they don't want to
. Did you realize that there is a 13.6 billion dollar legal pharmaceutical
trade in mood-altering drugs such as valium and librium? And that there is
about a 20 billion dollar market from the same drug manufacturers in the United
States that exported to Mexico where they do not have these tight pharmaceutical
controls - prescriptions - which comes back onto the streets of the United
States. That is close to 36 billion dollars a year at the retail level. Nobody
wants to interrupt this trade.
Tobacco is 4½ times more addictive than heroin
. This study was
done here at the Veterans Administration Hospital, Sepulvida, by Dr. Krober
in 1974. It had been found that GI's coming back from Vietnam who had several
habits - tobacco, heroin, others - could be gotten off heroin within 72
hours to a week
. But it was almost impossible to get them off of tobacco
So a study was done which established that the withdrawal time on tobacco
could run up to two years
. That it was 4½ times more physically
addictive than heroin - this is hard core scientific data. Would you like
to see the American tobacco companies stop paying taxes? Their net is around
27 billion dollars a year. These are big dollars.
People ask why these devices are not exactly legal in the United States. Well,
getting back to the story. We came to this conference table hoping to exchange
some information. I passed along to Meg and the rest of the people (who must
remain nameless...) the fact that Paul Tyler was willing to assist this group
in getting this device going.
Now, she (Meg) had been in this country since August 1981 (part2
They had raised 3½ million dollars to build a prototype. At the time
that I met with these people in February of 1983, not one device had been
So I asked them, "How's your patent status?" They replied, "Well,
we realized that once we patent it we've given the secret away, so we plan
on using the strategy of continuance in part". If you know what this
means - in other words they would continue to modify the patent as long as
possible with continuation amendments so as not to get a patent. That meant
that they had no patent. "Well what is the status of your prototype?"
Again they responded, "Well...we're, yada, yada, yada..."
I then asked, "Well are you going to sell these devices?" Response,
"Uh, we don't know, we think we're going to lease them". Next question,
"Well how much?" Response, "Well we'll put a price tag of about
$50,000 on each box and the doctor, as stated on the franchise agreement,
will be required to charge the person $8,000
if he has no insurance
for 10 days use of the box. $10,000 if he has insurance coverage. I have the
letter here that went to the franchisees. And yet they had no boxes.
A number of people had bought territory for this including William Parker
of the Parker Holistic Health Center and a number of other people that by
this time I had met. They had been promised delivery of the Brain Tuners by
December of 1981 and here we are into 1983 and not one box had ever been delivered.
Some strange things were happening here.
And after listening to this for about an hour, I was prepared, I had armed
a briefcase. I had devices which I had acquired, had smuggled into the United
States from the USSR, from Finland, from Germany, from England. I still have
some of these. We have the original devices that have been used by Dr. Wen
in Hong Kong. In other words the grandfather of the Shackman Instrument device
that Meg had used at the Pharmacon clinics in England.
So, it turned out that the investors who are at this table were not even aware
that this technology was over a hundred years old
... had been used
in the Soviet Union for over 20 years
... and had been used on the
continent for 15 years
... and in Great Britain for 10 years
thought that they had an original idea, which might have been patentable.
These devices could absolutely rock the boat
of the pharmaceutical
drug industry, the liquor industry, the tobacco industry, the doctors who
make a great deal of money. When you want the prescription refilled, usually
you have to pay the doctor a fee. It's just a mess. Why are these not being
used, for example, in alcoholic rehabilitation centers?
In 1969 some more friends of mine, new friends - I didn't meet these people
until I started researching this area - had heard about the generic term "electro-sleep
that was being used in the Soviet Union for addiction and alcohol control.
The government gave these people a little money, sent them to the Soviet Union,
and they came back with one of the original devices that were used for "electro-sleep."
It seemed that the Soviets had trouble with Generals who drank too much vodka.
And at this hospital in Washington, which is a household word, they were treating
American Generals who had the habit of too much scotch, bourbon or gin. They
brought the device back to the United States in late 1969 or early 1970 and
began using it in the hospital with addicts
. It's one of the most fascinating
psycho-political stories that emerged during the five months that I was actually
researching this data.
The CIA came around and said, "What are you doing?" My friends said,
"Well, we have this electronic device which apparently is restoring
brain function in Korsakoff psychosis which means loss of short-term memory
The CIA said, "You can't do that."
The people who were working on the project were dispersed. They took the device
to Garland, Texas to the Vero Instrument Company. Now Vero builds the high-technology
equipment. Vero builds skunk-work devices like starlight scopes, infrared
viewers, high technology microcomputers. They're one of the highest tech,
government secret-agency suppliers in the world. The vice president of this
company split off and founded a corporation called NeuroSystems
- and brought out a beautiful little device, which until recently was the
Cadillac of the entire field, about the size of a pack of cigarettes that
absolutely cured addictions
They thought, "Wow we're going to have markets for this". They never
got FDA approval
. It's been 14 years. FDA grandfathered them under section
510K of the 1976 Congressional Act. They still said, "Hey if we take
this around to dry farms, namely alcoholic rehabilitation centers, there should
be a tremendous need for these". Now in California alone there are about
two dozen - it's a big industry.
He knocked on doors and there was very little acceptance. Finally, a fellow
who had worked for one of these dry farms told him the secret. He said, "You
know if somebody comes in here who has good insurance, we can run up about
bill on laboratory tests alone... pathology, kidney test, blood
test, you name it.
He has to be in here for at least a week
and a half to 14 days before
we break even
on our television-advertising budget alone. The person gets
glossed up... the family's happy... he goes back to work. 75% of them will
backslide within six months. You come in here with a device that will totally
restore them in five days? Why, we are a franchise, we are here to make money
for our stockholders, get out of here you bum".
Research on Addictions and the Brain Tuner Technology
Now fortunately they had spent a great deal of money in absolutely and totally
documenting the effects of this little device. They found that it reversed
Korsakoff psychosis in 3 to 5 days
with chronic alcoholics. This work
was done at the University of Wisconsin Medical School, at the Louisiana Medical
College and at the University of Texas. Now any of you who've dealt with alcoholism
know that it normally takes eight years
for the short-term memory to
be restored - eight years of total abstinence.
The short-term memory profile of an alcoholic absolutely pinpoints the amount
of degeneration. One of the tests is the maze test, where you have to go through
a maze without lifting the pencil from the paper. The other is the beta section
of the test where you have to look at words on one page, then the page is
taken away and you have to remember it on subsequent pages. An alcoholic will
usually show a profile of almost total inability
to pass these two
In all of their subjects, I don't like to say all, it's rather spooky, 99%
of them - they were able... where they had a baseline of tests... for example,
where the person had been to college, had taken this same or a similar test
and had become an alcoholic for 15 years... where they had access to the original
records, the short-term memory
was totally restored in 5 days
of using this little box 40 minutes a day
. Now this is wild and wonderful.
All of this emerged during some of the research.
I spent quite a bit of time in the Biomed
Library of UCLA
, some time at the Norris
. Some of the papers, particularly the work done in the Soviet
Union and in the Orient, were only available at the National Medical Archives
at Bethesda, Maryland. But, I have compiled
- it isn't in the final form - and any of you who are health
professionals can get a copy of it. I'm still trying to get it on the word
processor and there's an explosion of information in electro-medicine
lately, as anyone knows, and I try to update it. So, every week my friends
send me at least another dozen references
on this particular topic.
Now it became apparent after spending a great deal of time with Meg that nothing
was going to happen in this particular sector. She had her engineers come
down to her little house on Fernleaf and I spent many an afternoon with them
explaining what I had found independently - explaining the difference between
constant current and constant voltage
The only device Meg had brought to this country was the Pharmacon
which we were able to thoroughly instrument, analyze and document. About the
size of the original Sony Walkman tape recorder. This is the device that was
used on Peter Townshend when he was flown in on a hospital bed type airplane
to the John Wayne Airport. He had taken a massive dose of heroin before he
left London, enough to get him to the States. He was absolutely green and
yellow when they took him off the plane... when Meg put this device on his
head... and within about 40 minutes
, of course all of you have read
this story - it's been reprinted in Penthouse, it's been reprinted in Omni
magazine, he was rehabilitated
- after having spent a fortune in various
clinics around the world. Peter Townshend finally got off, kicked the habit
and is now happy, healthy, clean, producing again and all of this is history.
At any rate, they were getting results
with the device as primitive
as it was and it began to appear that the Neuro-Electric Therapy group, the
Magnet Group were not going to produce anything. They were either unable
to do it. Now this could lead to a great deal of speculation
as to who got to whom, whether the Mafia was involved or some of the pharmaceuticalhouses..
Bob Beck's Decision to Design a Brain Tuner. Research
with Frequencies (part3 1:37)
So, I decided, "Well let's research this thing a little bit further and
bring out a box that will do some good". Which I did. I gave away a number
of these to friends and used them as guinea pigs. It worked, and we feel it
is vastly superior to the $50,000 Pharmacon device. But now another interesting
There had been an ongoing debate between Robert Becker who was Chief of Orthopedic
Surgery at the Syracuse VA Hospital, and a student of his Dr. Andy Bassett,
Columbia University, as to which frequencies would rehabilitate,
rejuvenate and grow limbs
back on amputated mammals.
Becker was using actually attached electrodes and putting current directly
into the system. Now he and I have shared several conferences in Canada over
the years. He's a brilliant man - he's rather bitter. At one time he had been
nominated for a Nobel Prize for his work, but because he was a little bit
outspoken, like some of the rest of our family, he got to enjoy a rather early
He was also speaking out on the fact that the power lines were causing
undue clusters of illness
here in the eastern United States. But, he had
a student named Andy Bassett who has made millions of dollars on a device,
which has been accepted by the orthopedic mainstream ethical physicians. A
little magnetic paddle
, which is put near the non-union fracture which
induces a current into that area by induction.
Now here we have two separate approaches. We have a little ongoing discussion
like Dr. Salk and Dr. Sabin. You can't get around either one of them without
having them absolutely assassinate the other one... This discussion [Becker
vs Bassett research] became so heated that some funds were laundered and sent
to Great Britain to find out just what was really going on.
The results of this were reported for the first time publicly at a conference
in Quebec last year by the principle investigator from Cambridge. A person
of female persuasion by the way, who finally located the secret frequency
that was causing the tissue to rejuvenate
. The mechanism by which this
happened was that some of the blood cells - the basophiles - are going to
a site which has been slightly operated.
In the case of a rat they would amputate an extremity and put on the electrode.
The blood seepage would undifferentiate
, go to the area and start growing
the tissue which had been there originally, as though there had been some
type of architectural pattern that had restored the memory of the RNA, DNA
close to the site to reproduce the proper tissue
. It didn't turn into
kidney tissue or brain tissue or testicles, it turned into whatever happened
to have been there before the amputation.
In human beings, young children, they have grown fingers back
. If you
follow this - it is an extremely delicate subject because they're not supposed
to be doing this with human subjects. But when they get off the conference,
they will talk to you about what has actually been going on with this. Now,
they ran many, many, many animal studies
They held a frequency constant
and varied the waveform, they held a
and varied the frequency, and they held the voltage
and frequency constant and varied the pulse repetition
rate. One of
the 3 magic numbers
was publicly disclosed at this conference a year
ago last August in Canada.
It was very much unsuspected. It was over 2 kilohertz. I can't.. well, I can
give it to this group - 2.72 kilohertz
. When that particular
frequency was in the shotgun effect of the device, the limb re-grew
When it was filtered out or when the slope of the curve was altered so that
that frequency was not predominant, it didn't grow. Now there are three
other magic numbers (3 neurotransmitters)
, which caused the rejuvenation,
the healing, rapid re-stimulation
of the neuro-transmitters. These
were developed on another government grant program and I am not at liberty
to tell you what they are. But, they are in the little box that we built.
Beck's Brain Tuner Frequencies (part3 6:30)
We did very elaborate spectrum analysis work on all of the units that we could
beg, borrow or steal. These are computer printouts, spectrum analysis sheets,
of over two dozen brain tuners
, AccuScopes, Biomedics, the Great Wall
Device from China, the Shackman instrument device, the Pharmacon unit from
England... We found the majority of these devices were sort of hit or miss
- they didn't have the magic numbers but they had enough fairly rough harmonics
You know, it's so ridiculous for the people selling these devices to claim
certain frequency effects.
How many engineers do we have here? Well, you've played around with radio...
uh, frequency is a useful term only if you're dealing with coherent waveforms
such as a sine wave. If you have a square wave, by definition a square wave
has an infinite number of odd harmonics
, right? That's what a square
wave is. So that means if you put a 10 Hz square wave into somebody, you have
every other odd harmonic of that from DC to light if it passes the system.
Is that correct? So here are people putting out square wave boxes that they
say will tune from X number of hertz to X number of hertz and they're looking
at the pulse repetition rates
and confusing them with the frequencies.
Now these are things we find absolutely abhorrent, but since all these devices
are copied from Tom Wings Myomatic
many years ago - the spin off from
the Myomatic was the AccuScope
... Well, we hope that in these years
where more and more people are talking about electronic medicine - which has
to be the medicine of the future
- that some of these basic misconceptions
will be clarified.
Well, at any rate five months after Paul haid said why don't you meet Meg
- find out if there is anything we can do speed this up. By the way, Meg's
reason for not accepting the government's offer was that she wanted an
entirely new category
. And Paul had conveyed to her that "If you
will come in under the grandfather clause, it will get you approval by the
FDA, which will permit animal and human experimentation".
Meg absolutely and totally refused to do this. She wanted a new category for
, not realizing that this category had been preempted
by CES, which is Cranial Electro Stimulation and a long list of generic terms.
We tried to explain to Meg that since Reagan there are only under 300 investigators
still working for the Food and Drug Administration and this is an accurate
figure. There are over 80,000 devices awaiting their investigation and approval.
If you have another 5 to 6 million dollars and ten years to wait - even if
we get you at the front of the list - it's not going to fly.
But she absolutely insisted that she would not come in under the grandfather
clause for a TENS unit. Although these devices do a great deal more than
unit, they cannot make claims
for what they actually do
because this would put them in a new category. And this means human and animal
tests, certification, all of the research that goes on and on and on and takes
a tremendous amount of money.
Beck starts Development of the Brain Tuner (part3 10:31)
So we began experimenting in earnest. Thank God I had access to an IQS Model
401 Spectrum Analyzer which is probably the most advanced thing that I could
get my hands on for under $50,000 at Hewlett Packard. And then we began looking
at these frequencies in earnest. We eliminated the need for ever tuning the
How many of you are familiar with the AccuScope
? I'm going to use this
as an example (part4
). Terry Fisher, like the rest of us, realized
that perhaps the most innocent people with whom you can deal are medical doctors.
And here are these two dials that have various frequency settings, and the
doctors very seldom read instructions. So Jerry came up with a marvelous idea.
He got some different colored scotch stick-on masking tape and cut little
dots that are red and orange and green and yellow and paste these dots on
the dial. Now we can tell the doctor match up the yellow dot
yellow dot. This made it almost idiot proof and so - instead of talking of
specific frequencies - which is ridiculous when you're dealing with anything
other than sine waves, anyway. You match the dots. He would come back months
later and find that the device was still set on the same dots as when he walked
out of the office and it was working fine. So everybody was happy.
All of this apocrypha is now being replaced by hard Science in these conferences.
I've attended a number of them. They say electricity is the thing which
makes you better
, etc., etc. At any rate this was the political state
of affairs in 1983 when a lot of people who did not know the difference between
and pulse repetition rate
and had never heard of heterodynes
and harmonics, were looking for the Holy Grail. The way they normally did
this, they would put the box on the dope addict and they would just juggle
a dial and say, "How does this feel, how does this feel, how does this
feel?" It was a fairly empirical process.
How many of you read the Omni article in January 1983 (McAuliffe: "The
Black Box: Secret Drug Treatment of Rock Superstars" OMNI Magazine 5,4
1.1983)? You notice there that the main secret of making the person better
was to twiddle the knob because at that time they did not know what the
. It has been fairly well established that the beta-endorphins
are stimulated with a pulse repetition rate of between 90 and 111 hertz
The catecholamines at around 4 hertz
, the enkephalins at another number,
etc., etc. This work has been very well documented
and very well replicated
by a number of scientific laboratories.
So what we decided to do in, our box, was to put all of these frequencies
simultaneously. Now some people said, "Well, shouldn't you do one and
then another and then another." And it's turned out not to be this way
at all. If you have a Hi Q circuit you can put white noise into it
and ring the filters, right? And the brain is an exceedingly Hi Q circuit.
It appears to have a Q in certain of the neuronal constructs of around 3,000.
Which is amazingly high.
What is Q? Q is the figure of merit. Q means the band pass versus the energy
required. A crystal set will get all the radio stations in the area at once.
A super heterodyne or TRF will get narrower and narrower bandwidth. If you
have a triple or double conversion super heterodyne, you can separate two
stations that are within a kilohertz of each other. The difference between
those is the Q of the circuit, which is tuning to the signal. The higher the
Q the lower the band pass, the less the interference.
So we developed a system. We broke the price barrier, most of these things
sold for 5,000 up. This (Brain Tuner) has everything in it that was necessary
for the brain to rehabilitate it's own production of neuro-transmitters. In
the meantime we had found about 200 pounds of literature
- at least
I have that many boxes full of Xerox material that friends had sent me - literally
cardboard cartons full. My filing system is abysmal. I'm very creative - I
just pile it in boxes and hope I can find it later.
Of the work that had been done absolutely establishing that any stress
- and this is why the psychologists hate this device.
The stress-related symptoms that are recognized are: insomnia, addiction,
anxiety and depression
. About 95%
of the people who use these devices
for a period of less than a month
, find a complete reversal of these
And here the psychologists that have been talking to them for years and took
75$ an hour. The pharmacologists have been giving them mood-elevating, depressing
and altering drugs since the good old days of Milltown and into the more elaborate
I am here with a little box that with a transistor radio battery may fix
50 different people
before the battery ran down and you had to replace
it. So naturally there was a great deal of resistance to this type of technology.
So right now there's this political hassle happening over the fact that even
the Carnegie Report, the study back at the turn of the century, tried to damn
all of the electronic medicine that had been proven back in the 1890's
to be highly effective
And you know who funded those studies. It's very much like the American Tobacco
industry saying that the link between lung cancer and smoking - there isn't
any. So we could go on and on about this. Basically that's what the device
is. That's how I started to do it. I hated to see people being charged $1,000
a day and the thing just grew and grew and grew and grew. I am sure there
are a lot of specific questions here and may be a lot of other topics we can
Early Research Studies (part4 6:05)
The results of this in drug addicts were generated in the United States several
years before Meg learned about the device in Hong Kong. And the vast literature
on this was funded by the Neuro Systems Incorporated Group
How many of you have heard of the Executive Monkey study
. This work
was funded by the people who brought this box out originally in 1970. This
is before Dr. Wen had his serendipity, his accidental discovery, with the
heroin addicts in Hong Kong. I didn't realize you could give monkeys ulcers.
But what they had done was to aggravate them enough to where they had ulcers
and put the device on their acupuncture points.
They found that within about three days they had reversed the pH
acidity, and the monkeys got better - the control group. All of this work
had been thoroughly done long before this current era of re-stimulation of
interest. The rat studies had been done both in San Francisco and in Hong
Kong. The chromatography had been done here in the United States, so it was
well controlled. There is a wealth of information on this and I am delighted
to share the bibliography with you.
Like electronic medicine, when we were looking at patents, we found a patent
(US502776) showing a fellow with electrodes behind his ears. Did
I show you that Paul - ok.
1893, before the Harrison Act, some 20 some years before the Harrison Act
you could go into any drugstore and buy morphine sulfate. Mothers whose babies
cried could buy simple soothing syrup, which was sugar and morphine. She'd
give a teaspoon to the baby and the baby wouldn't cry anymore. There were
quite a few addicts
. The stuff was legal, there was no control. I mean
marijuana was legal. After the Act, a number of people who were trying to
get off this had forgotten that around 1890 we had a hell of a lot more addicts
in this country. The women who were religious were sipping tonic which was
about 200 proof alcohol for their health, taking bitters and what have you.
In other words, we had about the same addiction level. And this work had
been explored about 84 to 85 years ago
and then again suppressed
by what we feel is the ruling class of the doctors, the pharmacies and the
people who want to take your money for making you better. So if you are interested
- we have this vast literature
, we have a bibliography
we have a patent list
Fischer, no relation to Jerry, had done this work in 1932 and 1935
and had a number of patents. Remember the Fischer Instrument Company that
was making electrical stimulating devices
back 40 years or so. Okay, this
has been in the literature, they had explored in great depth the wave forms,
, the application modes and what have you (part5
A number of others have replicated the work that had been done in 1973.
Bob Beck's Early Research (part5 0:35)
In 1969 I began building ethical biofeedback equipment - EEG Brainwave Amplifiers.
I had one foot on each banana peel, I had been a scientist and I am now a
kook, so we sort of straddle this chasm. So I have taught biofeedback classes
at UCLA, USC, Vilanova University of Hawaii, SMU. And when I was doing this
for health professionals, I also had access to the psychic underground.
In Hawaii I was able to make brainwave recordings of one of the three living
bloodline Polynesian Kahunas... I was able to make brainwave EEG recordings
of Hexenmeisters like John Ott in Lancaster County - no relation to the fellow
who did the work on light and colour. I have worked with American Indian medicine
men. I've worked with Kathryn Coleman before she died. And she let me run
a little telemetry test when she was knocking them down at the Shrine Auditorium.
We found almost invariably that when they were in their working state
- which was only a few seconds - you're here you get the information you come
back, you can talk about it for hours. It's a flash, in the twinkling of an
eye. They were showing about a 7.83 hertz, almost pure coherent
20 microvolt signal frontal to occipital midline
. That's between F1
and F2 in the standard nomenclature system to halfway between 01 and 02 if
you're an encephalographer.
In other words the third eye... which shows whole brain alpha. Over and over
again we found these frequencies in people with remarkable talents
- healers, radionics operators, dousers, shamans, witch doctors, mystics,
golden don, priests and priestesses - if they were authentic. One of our early
cases was, well I'd better not mention the person's name, and it's a world
But at any rate I was intrigued enough with this to want to discover the
... yet none of these persons would speak to the others.
Kathryn Coleman thought it was the blood of the lamb that Christ had died
for your sins and that's the only way to go... and some of the American Indian
medicine men thought it was in the sacred cornmeal, the gourds and the feathers.
Marnis and Leona had certain stones that were the dwelling place of the ancestral
spirits. Well, Kathryn would think that was heathen and Marnis would absolutely
laugh at a fellow in a barn in Lancaster County wearing a black hat between
midnight and dawn drawing these Hexen signals to bless the barns. None of
these people would speak to one another but they were all showing the same
Now the amazing thing about this it that 7.8Hz
is the main median mode
frequency of the Schuman resonance
of the earth ionosphere cavity resonance.
So after we'd seen it enough times, I developed very sensitive magnetometers,
which I sold to the government for anti-submarine warfare, that would detect
this earth ionosphere cavity resonance
. And in a few cases - not enough
to make a solid scientific case, but enough to be extremely interesting anecdotally
- we found that there was phase-lock... both frequency, amplitude, etc. between
that person's EEG signature and the earth's brainwave itself. Now this was
heresy, when I reported on it in 1973 and then did a more formal paper in
The Mind as a Hologram (part5 4:33)
What does this mean? It means that some people with remarkable talents - may
be one in a 1000 - are sensitive enough to tune to this cosmic clock. When
they synchonize their brainwave with this signal, they can access information
in a hologram, which is normally not accessible - except in an altered state
If we take a hologram with helium-neon laser light which happens to be 632.8
nanometers and try to play that hologram back with a carbon dioxide laser
or anything else, we've got garbage. That hologram, at least in the old fashioned
system - not the dichromates, must be played back at that specific wavelength
of light. If it doesn't you garble the image.
If the holographic mind - which was very hot several years ago as a topic
of conversation - is true... David Bohm, of course this is his theory, and
Karl Pribram thought it was a good idea and got on board.
It is now fairly certain that the mind is a hologram, it acts holographically.
If you cut a picture in half and throw half of it away, you've lost half the
data. But if you cut half of your brain out, like we had a number of hydroencephalites
that had a brain about the size of a grape and we had veterans coming back
from Korea, Vietnam, World War 1 and 2, that had 90% of their brain missing
They hadn't forgotten 90% of their family - they had remembered every single
person. It wasn't as though you had thrown half of the information away. So,
that suggested that the brain was processing information like a hologram
If you break that hologram into smaller and smaller pieces, you still have
the whole picture but in less detail. But you can't see that picture unless
you have that specific excitation frequency of, in the case of helium, neon,
which is the most common, replays that information. So as a metaphor only,
if the person has by dent of meditation, religious practice, taking sacred
mushrooms or whatever, the person does manage to hit that frequency
in his brainwave pattern, it seems to make him more amenable to all of this
Now this is interesting because if our brain, our mind, is a hologram and
if you and you and you are existing here right now, you're a part of it. Which
means that if you can access what is in your mind, quantum physics says there's
no reason why you can't access the whole thing. Thou art that. You are in
the universe, the universe is in you. You are God.
Whatever information is out there you have just a little bitty slice of it,
it isn't as sharp, it isn't as high resolution as if you were everybody all
at the same time but you can do it as any shaman or person who's undergone
any kind of mystical discipline... The Monroe institute can demonstrate this...
So what that means to us is that maybe that magic number 7.83 hertz is the
place on the alpha-theta border. Alpha is from 8 to about, they used to say
14, we now say 12½ because there's a kappa in the gap. Theta is usually
considered to be 4 to 7. So 8 or 7.83 is right there on the bi-phasic border
between the alpha-theta.
We've known for years that theta might be the area where we access creativity.
You recall that Thomas Edison, Bernard Berude, many people, would take a little
when they were dealing with a particular knotty problem. They would
say, "I will have the answer when I wake up" and usually they would.
The reason for that didn't emerge until many, many years after the death of
these people who had been using this technique.
A number of us use this today. It was demonstrated that when you go to sleep,
the hypnogogic state going from waking to sleeping, the hypnopompic coming
up from sleep to normal consciousness... you pass through that alpha-theta
border and that might be the place where you access the information external
to your own nervous system
Now, you can get an argument on this, but great ideas down through history
from the invention of calculus to inventions of many other things have
at places all over the planet. So that means that
maybe Rupert Sheldrake is right - that there is a morphogenetic field
and that maybe this is the best way to access this.
Now getting back to your "What does this mean?" This state can
be stimulated with small magnetic oscillators
. I brought this one that
was brought in from Germany. This is the Vittaset unit that many of the important
people in Germany have to wear because it re-synchronizes the left and right
hemisphere firing... with this little magnetic pace setter... when they're
feeling particularly distressed because they're closer to the Eastern Iron
Curtain transmitters than we are.
This work has also been done by Delgado who had to leave the University of
New Mexico and go to Spain because his work was so controversial. It's been
done by Ross Adey at the VA hospital out here in Loma Linda. It has been replicated
by any number of people both in the open literature and in the intelligence
community as a fact.
Your brain can be stimulated to go into these particular states... So, instead
of it being witchcraft, this is emerging as the medicine, the consciousness,
of the future
. Instead of dropping acid to alter consciousness, there
are far more benign ways (part6
Well, I would say that science and religion are on a collision course if they
haven't collided a long time ago. I would say that we now have scientific
proof that man, as a bio-cosmic resonator is tremendously sensitive to these
very small stimuli. There are 3500 papers on this topic in the hard-core scientific
literature. Now if you choose to challenge me on that figure I will take you
10 to 1 in a bet. It's an explosion of information!
Years ago we were a piece of meat. Today, we are a finely-tuned instrument
that can access information exterior to ourselves and do something with it
- bring it back. I'm told about a time when Bob Monroe gave a demonstration
for the CIA
and he was challenged to leave his body. This happened in
Maryland if I got the story straight from the naval office of surface weaponry
that sponsored it. That's the skunk works back there in White Oaks, Maryland.
Bob actually went to the distant site, got into the safe
, read the
data and came back. It was later verified on a double blind test. Half the
people in that room got up and said, "Gee that's interesting. I wonder
how he did it. It has to be some kind of a trick". And then went unconscious
about it later. Their reality structure could not admit that, damn it, the
Soviets have been doing this for a long time and there are some people over
here that are on top of it. It's the challenge to your belief structure that
stops... well we could go on that forever.
One of the implications of this is that we have new technology for enhancing
rapidly, safely, right now, with no side effects... that
works for at least 30% of the population. The Brain Tuner works for about
95%, the magnetic stimulation for only about a third. So that is by no means
I have may be 100 devices that I have been talking about. There are 2 different
approaches to healing. Robert Becker puts electrodes on, Dr. Andy Basett puts
a little magnetic paddle. Both of these things work. And that device (the
Brain Tuner) is absolutely guaranteed to outperform things that sold from
5000 to 10000$. We give a 100% money back guarantee. Thats called the Brain
Use of the Brain Tuner: Placement of the electrodes
The electrodes go behind the ears. You might want to know how this happened.
Traditionally the point for stimulation for electro-acupuncture for certain
types of surgery is .86, which is in the ear, the area that's called the heart
lung point in classical acupuncture. Dr. Wen was inserting number 30 needles,
I think it was 3 tenths of a millimeter beneath the surface of the skin at
a 30 degree angle. And he was putting - this is all in the open literature
- alligator clips to these needles.
Meg Patterson found a spot on the mastoid process right up here at the top
of the ear, using external electrodes, not penetrating the skin, no blood
and guts, that was just as effective
. The neuro-systems people, in
doing a study, found that by far the most effective spot is this little hollow
behind the TMG, the temporal mendibular joint. This accesses various acupuncture
points on what's called the triple warmer.
Used Frequencies (part6 4:32)
So far we have only 3 units returned to us in over a year. And these were
why people tried to take them apart to build their own and they try to dig
into the stuff, sent them back because they couldnt do it. We have all of
the frequencies simultaneously. This generates a sine wave of 10 hertz at
milli-volts and it requires about 25 volts minimum threshold to stimulate
the endorphins. We use 200 frequencies. Would you like to see the spectrum
analysis of this
We put them in bundles. We think that some physiology... for example an old
person and a young person might have slightly different frequencies
So when we are hitting the beta-endorphins we center it. For example if this
is the target frequency, we put out enough on each side of it in these 3
: encephalon, catecholamines and beta-endorphins. These seem
to be the most active known
We've used a bit of a shotgun approach instead of a rifle
. When we
work the lower frequencies for the catecholamines, each one of these clusters
show the simultaneous frequency spectrum by Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) each
millisecond. In each one thousandth of a second, this bundle of energy is
supplied to the points. Now it was rather difficult to do that because we
had to buy reverse Fourier transform
, find out what fundamentals would
recombine and heterodyne to give us exactly the spectrum that we want
If you hold a prism to the light and you have white light, you can separate
that into red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo violet. You can recombine
those with three basic colors to get white, but you have gaps in it. If you
look at that with a spectroscope, if you look at a fluorescent lamp, you'll
find it's not a continuous spectrum.
What about side effects? The most troublesome side effect that has been noted
almost universally is that it stimulates lucid dreaming. Some people who have
been shut off from their dreams are a little alarmed, at first.
Electrodes (part6 8:31)
The electrodes have to be very very wet before they work. You have to soak
them in salt water the first time you get. After you get them in tap water
and once a month in salt water. Well, you can notice a sting if you don't
clean. There's the oil, I took a bath before I came here but I feel a little
oil on my skin. It's a matter of contact
and if you clean that area
with a little swab of alcohol and get good contact, there is no sting. It's
a very pleasant sort of buzzing stimulation.
In classical acupuncture the needle has to go in within the tenth of a
of the desired site. With electropuncture anythere between
a half and 3 quarters of an inch will still hit it because the current is
diffuse. The electrons being of light charge will disperse through the body,
so anywhere near that is effective.
Side Effects (part6 9:50)
This is another one of the startling side-effects. My own lady had had a spinal
block when her daughter who is 25 years old was born. Since that time she
could not remember telephone numbers or addresses very well. She found after
she'd been on it one day that she was recalling telephone numbers, did not
need the telephone book... and numbers that she had known 20 years earlier
when she worked in aerospace, were coming back. You'll find that you can recall
faces and places that you thought you had lost, they're just there. It does
amazing things to the memory.
It is as specific for stress reduction. If you have any type of anxiety, depression,
insomnia. If it's chronic it takes about 3 weeks. This is a universal constant
that has been replicated in any number of studies. If it's acute it takes
about a week.
FDA approval (part7 0:17)
If this device is approved by the Food and Drug Administration, it will have
to have a little label on it that says it is illegal to use, transport, sell,
etc., this device without a medical prescription. It will have to go up in
price... the public won't be able to access it, they will have to go to a
medical doctor and get a prescription for it. TENS units, StimTek for example...
sell for about $500 to $600, cost them about 5$ to build. But the doctors
say that unless it costs about $500 it isn't medicine. It will be another
If it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration, it will not be accessible
by the people who want it - except at a very high price.
Dosage (part7 1:21)
The dosage... all of the plateaus have been noticed by most of the workers
at between 20 and 30 minutes. 40 minutes is red line. If you go 45 minutes,
they begin coming down the other side of the slope. It won't do any damage,
but you will undo the benefits
. So, we recommend that the device be
used for only about 20 to 30 minutes a day
Too much medicine is worse than not enough. So, in the case of an alcoholic
that's into DT's, bed-ridden, throwing up, you know really in bad shape -
we say two sessions, 40 minutes in the morning and 40 minutes at night, a
day. When the person is more or less back together we say then cut that back
down to 40 minutes once a day. That seems to be enough.
What amplitude is necessary? You turn it up to the point where it's basically
uncomfortable, then turn it down to where it's comfortable. In about 10 minutes
you'll find that you'll acclimate and you'll have to turn it higher and higher.
Your body builds up a tolerance to it.
Success Stories (part7 3:41)
We've had a problem with a few alcoholics who we've gotten off say a fifth
of scotch a day. And they feel so great they panicked. When they went back,
drinking only two fifths they got the same effect that they would on one.
that this is the death wish and since God gave those people free will and
they've chosen to anesthetize themselves, that's their choice. But if they
want to kick whatever it is, it works.
It only works about 45% effectively with tobacco. With Dr. Elizabeth Long's
work with heroin, morphine, it's been about 95%. With Valium and Librium about
95%. The only thing that we can't kick almost instantly is tobacco. That's
the most addictive substance known to man. She works with Valerie Hunt and
has a practice in the Hollywood area.
Many many doctors have used this. Some doctors will buy one unit and pass
it around. The next will be for 3 or 4, the next for 10, the next will be
for a couple of dozend. So its a thoroughly tested approach. The animal studies
had proven that. It works...
Dr. Hunt has been working with people with dyslexia and she finds that she
can resynchronize their left and right hemisphere. This is measured with photo-stimulus.
If you flash a strobe light at the closed eyes of a child with dyslexia and
measure the evoked potential, the photo-stimulus, that's taken off of the
occipital, you'll find that the signal will arrive from one eye at a different
time than it will the other. You can see this on an oscilloscope. Which means
that the optic nerve is not processing that data coherently. After the Brain
Tuner is used, the firing of the neurons are reset, so that they're all marching
to the sound of the same drummer - the person can read for a while after that
exposure without palming, without going through the usual strategies of a
person who is unsynchronized. So, you can call it a brain wave synchronizer,
you can call it a gobbledy gook. If it's working don't fix it.
Does it improve intelligence? What they found in a student study at the University
of Louisiana, again this is accessible in the literature, they were working
on students who had anxiety about final exams - and I know I've been there,
years ago fortunately. And after they had removed the anxiety
freezing, their IQ's went up
. So the story was spread around for a
while that these things improved intelligence.
But it turned out that that isn't what was happening. What had happened is
that they had restored these person's memory
. Apparently they were
then able to access the information in a shorter period of time and since
IQ tests are graded against a clock, they were getting higher scores. So it
wasn't intelligence, it was simply memory
that had been rehabilitated.
And this was controversial from about 1972 to 74. There were all these arguments
in the literature about why was this person performing better and the final
solution was simply that the memory had been restored. In other words apparently
when the brain is tuned, the neuro-transmitters are in balance
You see, 80% of the hospital beds in this country - may be 100 - are occupied
with people who have psychosomatic illness. Most of these are now traceable
to stress. When you relieve the stress you are going to reverse that condition.
The body itself has a marvellous ability to heal itself when it has the proper
things to work with. When you normalize neurotransmitters - they apparently
than anything else to normalize the body
I use this may be once a week. I had to work some days 14, 18 hours. I can
do about twice as much in half the time. My memory is better than 20 years
ago. I sleep better. I have a lot of energy... Dr. Ray Smith who is the chief
of research and development of Neuro systems carries a unit. I saw him last
week. He uses his once or twice a month. This lets him get the job done. Normally
people build up so much resistance to a job or what have you.
With regards to depression, lithium carbonate requires blood assays, the dosage
is fairly critical. In most of the studies, again double blind, a most amazing
thing happened in some of these studies. The doctors, who had done them, and
I have one or two of these from the University of Wisconsin, said that we
hope our colleagues check our results. We can't imagine anything being this
effective and yet we've gone over our studies repeatedly. To have a responsible
scientist put that in his report as sort of a disclaimer, I found rather titillating.
And yes, it does specifically address stress-related symptoms and at the top
of that list are anxiety and depression
. And we don't know of anyone
who doesn't have a taste of these no matter how well balanced, how well adjusted,
how high on pot, or low on Valium, Librium or what have you that they get
TENS Devices and Politics (part8 4:51)
Apparently a number of TENS (Transcutaneous Electro Nerve Stimulation) devices
like the AccuStim
are being used in sports medicine.
But they are basically being used to relieve pain. TENS units have been around
for about 100 years. When Norman Shealey
saw the little device from
the barber shop that had an induction coil and a flashlight battery and a
handle that you roll up and down your back, he had thought this was a good
idea and brought out one of the first transistorized TENS units
By the way, there's an interesting story. The Stemtech Company
purchased by Johnson & Johnson, I'm sure you're aware of the litigation
that came down. And a few years ago, the president of Stemtech, took Johnson
& Johnson, which is one of the largest pill manufacturers in the United
States, they make Tylenol, Super Tylenol and what have you - hundreds of other
products. They took them to court saying, "you've suppressed this technology."
They won. The judge said, "In 30 years on the bench, I have never seen
a more flagrant violation of trust" - this was reported in a number of
magazine articles. Johnson & Johnson appealed the 130 million dollar judgement
against Johnson & Johnson and lost the appeal.
The inventors of the Stemtech which is only one of maybe 20 or 30 TENS units,
then got back in motion. The judge pointed out that it wasn't to the advantage
of Johnson & Johnson to have anything to relieve pain
if they were
in the business of selling Tylenol. So that's a matter of public record that
the drug companies try to suppress this type of technology
. That was
a pretty big lawsuit - it made a lot of headlines.
That's typical... you see we're not dealing with a scientific problem with
this type of instrumentation, we're dealing with a socio-political-economic
. The government on one hand subsidizes the tobacco growers and
on the other hand says you have to put a warning on the packages. But the
tobacco growers generate so much tax revenue that they're in this double bind.
This thing is a political problem not a scientific one.
The same thing is happening with the new emerging electronic medical devices
Germany has some of the most amazing things, the Mora
Unit - you're
familiar with that... the Dermatron
. These things do almost psychic
work. And yet they're totally outlawed
in this country.
Andreas has to smuggle these things in - call them agricultural testing devices.
We've had one complaint from a number of professional users. They say "For
God's sake, take that thing and put it in a great, big box, put a lot of dials
and bells and whistles and light-emitting diodes and switches on it, all of
which would be dummy incidentally, and charge five or six thousand dollars
for it. Then people will have faith in it." And I say "Well that's
criminal." But anyway that's my philosophy.
Its a superb TENS (Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulator) unit. I was going
to lunch with Paul at the Ambassador a couple of weeks ago and I tripped over
(it was very embarrassing) one of these tire puncturing things and having
had about 10 years of judo, I slapped as I was going on to the cement. And
I broke, I don't know whether I broke the bone - but this was extremely painful.
I couldn't even move it. And I thought "Holy cow what's the matter with
me?" So I got the Brain Tuner, put it on the area and the next day I
had full mobility and no pain
. I held the electrodes on my hand for
about 10 minutes
. So, it's a superb TENS unit
. But we don't
sell it for that purpose.
Meg Patterson, when I first met her, was wearing her Brain uner on her back.
She had low back pain. In this first meeting she had 2 electrodes taped on
her back and she had this one Pharmacon unit in her belt. You cannot use a
TENS unit for a Brain tuner because there's a DC offset built in. Any DC above
the neck causes small synoptic polarization. Like electrolysis. Do not use
a TENS unit as a Brain Tuner but you can use a Brain Tuner as a TENS unit.
All hens are chickens, not all chickens are hens (part9
