Stress Eraser – The Biofeedback Body Computer

By Thomas Herold in Product Reviews on August 16th, 2006 /  1 Comment »

Handheld medical device calms the mind and relaxes the body anytime, anywhere.

Helicor, Inc. has begun shipping the StressEraser, a handheld medical device designed to calm the mind and relax the body anytime, anywhere. The StressEraser can be used to quiet the mind before sleeping, rapidly relieve intense stress, and even to stay calm during highly stressful situations.

Stress Eraser - The Biofeedback Body ComputerHelicor first demonstrated the StressEraser August 18-21 at the 113th annual convention of the American Psychological Association in Washington, D.C. The StressEraser is classified by the FDA as a Class II (510(k) exempt) medical device. Patents are pending.

During stress, the body’s stimulating nerves cause the mind to become restless by increasing brain activity; they cause nervousness by increasing heart rate and blood pressure; and they cause tension by increasing the rate of respiration. The body’s pacifying nerves calm the mind and relax the body by reversing each of these effects.

Both the stimulating and pacifying nerves attach directly to the heart. The interplay of these nerves causes subtle, yet measurable, changes in the beat-to-beat heart rate. The StressEraser is the first device capable of decoding the real-time activity of these nerves using heart rate measurements, enabling a user to quickly gain control over the activity level of the nerves.

The StressEraser interactively guides users in adjusting their breathing and mental focus to rapidly decrease the activity of the stimulating nerves while increasing the activity of the pacifying nerves. In other words, StressEraser users can quickly calm the mind and relax the body, even during intensely stressful situations. And the convenience and portability of the StressEraser allows people to experience its benefits anytime, anywhere.

“By addressing the actual nerves that regulate stress, which extend from the brain stem throughout the body, we are able to affect many aspects of stress all at the same time,”explained Michael Wood, Co-Founder & Chief Science Officer of Helicor.

Mr. Wood developed the core technology for the StressEraser while researching solutions for his own personal stress. Adam Forbes, Co-Founder & CEO of Helicor, partnered with Mr. Wood to create the StressEraser and bring it to market.

“Our goal was to take Michael’s groundbreaking technology in the field of biofeedback and stress management and design a compact, portable, wire-free, socially acceptable medical device,” said Mr. Forbes. “From conception to launch, it’s been an amazing journey.”

The StressEraser provides a daily points-based system that allows therapists to tailor stress therapy homework to the individual treatment needs of their clients. Helicor recommends at least 30 points (approximately 5 minutes) per session for rapid temporary relief, and at least 100 points per day to achieve a lasting therapeutic benefit and cultivate an ongoing feeling of calm relaxation.

Helicor is shipping the StressEraser after more than four years of research and development. The StressEraser is available for $399, with a 60-day risk-free trial, from the StressEraser web site at It is currently available to U.S. residents only.

Helicor’s corporate headquarters is located at 156 Fifth Avenue, Suite 1218, New York, NY 10010. Phone: 212-255-5991; Fax: 212-255-5994.

Unveiling the Mystery of Consciousness Through Quantum Physics

By Thomas Herold in Book Reviews on August 15th, 2006 /  No Comments »

This audio course from Fred Alan Wolf gets you deep into the quantum mystery. Fred Alan Wolf is funny and has a wide bandwidth of knowledge that goes far beyond the usual quantum domain.

Dr. Quantum Presents: A User\'s Guide To Your UniverseThe course comes on 6 CD’s and covers also topics like dreaming, chamans, ancient kaballa, the meaning of numbers and a lot more. I enjoy listening to the CD’s even after the sixth time.

The art of “applied quantum physics” is learning how to harness the power of consciousness as we move through space and time. At the heart of quantum theory lies an astonishing (and scientifically proven) truth: that the very act of observing events in your life can alter their outcome. Our minds may not be just along for the ride in an impersonal universe, suggests Dr. Wolf. Instead, we can define the fabric of reality at a fundamental level with the choices we make, the things we choose to see or not see, and most importantly, our intentions in each moment.

How does the energy of your emotions change the physical state of your body? Can we actually perceive parallel universes? Is time travel possible for you at this very moment? On Dr. Quantum Presents: A User’s Guide to Your Universe, Fred Alan Wolf takes you outside the walls of the laboratory, through the pages of history, and into the land of dreams, alchemy, and enchantment.

With him, you will follow in the footsteps of such physics giants as Planck, Heisenberg, and Einstein, as you learn to reframe your perceptions of “ordinary” reality. Ultimately, you will learn to use the “Technology of God”—harnessing the power of your mind to become an active co-creator of the universe.

Until very recently, the principles of quantum physics would have been dismissed as nonsense, heresy, or worse. Today, they are proven facts. Now, join Fred Alan Wolf as he takes you on a breathtaking adventure of illumination to learn how this cutting-edge science of spirituality can revolutionize the way you think, act, and live.


  • How quantum physics guides us to a new way of seeing the universe
  • Is there really an “out there” out there?
  • Instructions for traveling through time (really!)
  • The Technology of God, and how you can use it every day
  • The logic of being “irrational”—how we can break out of old ways of thinking to fully interact with the universe
  • The Quantum Leap: the moment when we transform possibility into reality

Super Learning with The Neurophone

By Thomas Herold in Product Reviews on August 5th, 2006 /  17 Comments »

The Neurophone provides a means for ultrasonic waves to be interpreted by our brain as “hearing. This technology bypasses the normal audio mechanisms used by the body to hear sounds and provides a direct neural stimulation to the brain. By bypassing the ears to hear … mediating, studying and learning becomes easier to comprehend and retain.

Super Learning with the NeurophoneThe Neurophone, as mentioned in Super Memory, Super Learning and Megabrain, converts sound waves into a digital signals that matches the time ratio codes understood by every nerve in the body. These codes are used for speech recognition, locating sound sources in the 3-D world and in accelerated learning.

Imagine a time when you were trying to concentrate on learning a new activity or concept and recall how easy it was to be distracted by other noises: co-workers, family, telephone, television, vehicle sounds, etc.

Hearing is an amazing sense; however, our ears are not selective to the content that they do or do not hear. As a result, it becomes difficult to focus on the task at hand. The Neurophone effectively allows you to “hear without your ears.”

A very popular use is to use the Neurophone with its built-in pink noise generator for meditation and relaxation. Some people go sleep with it on. Many people like to listen to pink noise through the Neurophone as they are listening to music. Others have had success using it with language and memorization programs for direct ultrasonic input to the brain by connecting a CD player to the Neurophone. Pink noise plays a key role in all of these applications; pink noise is white noise that has been filtered to reduce the volume at each octave, resulting in a noise sound wave that has equal energy at every octave.

How can you use the Neurophone?

Using the Neurophone is simple … just put the transducers on your forehead using the headband, choose the built-in “pink sound” generator or your own music or learning CDs … and you’re on your way to re-sensitizing new neuro pathways to your brain. By bypassing the ears, the body “hears” the sound making reading, meditating, studying and learning much easier.

Some of the documented benefits include:

  • Stimulate new neurological pathways in your brain
  • Electronic telepathy
  • Used to develop Dolphin-Human holographic communication
  • Three dimensional hearing
  • Accelerated learning

History and Technology of the Neurophone

It has been said that great inventions take 50 years before they are understood. In 1991, Martin Lenhardt of the University of Virginia discovered that human beings have the ability to detect ultrasonic sound when it is transmitted through the skin, bones and liquids of the body. His groundbreaking discovery was published in the prestigious journal Science, Vol. 253, 5, 1991, 82. Lenhardt had duplicated Patrick’s original 1958 Neurophone® using sophisticated ultrasonic transducers and discovered that a tiny organ in the inner ear that is normally associated with balance is also a hearing organ for ultrasonic sound.

The Neurophone® transmits modulated ultrasonic sound at 40,000 cycles per second (40 kHz). When we swim with dolphins or whales, we can hear the ultrasonic energy emitted by these mammals through our saccule. By using the Neurophone®, we can train our brain pathways so that we can “hear” through the saccule pathway. It may be that our ancestors could communicate with whales and dolphins by the use of ultrasonic sound. When the Neurophone® is used as an experimental listening device, these pathways are developed and appear to expand consciousness balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain.

The GPF-1011 DSP Neurophone® has been developed and engineered to provide a means for ultrasonic waves to be interpreted by our brain as “hearing”. The technology bypasses the normal audio mechanisms used by the body to hear sound and provides a direct neural stimulation directly to the brain. By bypassing the ears to hear- reading, meditating, studying and learning in general may become easier to comprehend and retain.

Generally, commercial digital speech recognition circuitry is based on a technology called dominant frequency power analysis. While speech may be recognized by such a circuit, a more effective and natural speech encoding is based on time ratios. If the phase of the frequency power analysis circuits are not correct, they will not work. The intelligence (sound) is carried by phase information. The frequency content of the voice gives our voice a certain quality, but frequency does not contain information. Most attempts at computer voice recognition and voice generation are only partially successful. Until digital time-ratio encoding is used, our computers will never be able to truly talk to us. By recognizing and using time-ratio encoding, we could transmit clear voice data through extremely narrow bandwidths. If the Neurophone® transducers are placed on the closed eyes or on the face, the sound can be clearly ‘heard’ as if it were coming from inside the brain. When the transducers are placed on the face, the sound is perceived through the trigeminal nerve. There was an earlier test performed at Tufts University that was designed by Dr. Dwight Wayne Batteau, one of Dr. Flanagan’s partners in the United States Navy Dolphin Communication Project. This test was known as the “Beat Frequency Test”. It is well known that sound waves of two slightly different frequencies create a ‘beat’ note as the waves interfere with each other. For example, if a sound of 300 Hertz and one of 330 Hertz are played into one ear at the same time, a beat note of 30 Hertz will be perceived. This is a mechanical summation of sound in the bone structure of the inner ear.

There is another beat, sounds beat together in the corpus callosum in the center of the brain. This binaural beat is used by the Monroe Institute and others to simulate altered brain states by entraining (causing brain waves to lock on and follow the signal) the brain into high alpha or even theta brain states. These brain states are associated with creativity, lucid dreamingand other states of consciousness otherwise difficult to reach when awake.

The Neurophone® is a Powerful Brain Entrainment Device

If we play alpha or theta signals directly through the Neurophone®, we can move the brain into any state desired. Batteau’s theory was that if we could place the Neurophone® transducers so that the sound was perceived as coming from one side of the head only, and if we played a 300 Hertz signal through the Neurophone®, if we also played a 330 Hertz signal through an ordinary headphone we would get a beat note if the signals were summing in the inner ear bones. When the test was conducted, we were able to perceive two distinct tones without beat. This test again proved that Neurophonic hearing was not through bone conduction.

The key to the Neurophone® GPF-1011 DSP is the stimulation of the nerves of the skin with a digitally coded signal that carries the same time-ratio code that is recognized as sound by any nerve in the body.

Imagine a time when trying to concentrate on learning a new activity or concentrating on work and think how easy can be to become distracted by other noises- coworkers, phones, television, etc. Hearing is an amazing sense, however our ears are not selective to the content that they do or do not hear. It is sometimes difficult to focus on the task at hand. The Neurophone® effectively bypasses the ears to “hear without your ears.” Information is able to be directly processed in the brain without the distractive input.

About the Inventor Dr. Patrick

The Neurophone® was invented by Dr. G. Patrick Flanagan in 1958 when he was 14 years old. Patrick was a child prodigy in electronics, chemistry and physics. He had discovered an entirely new way to transmit sound into the human brain. Patrick’s profound invention has received two United States patents, #3,393,279 and #3,647,970. It took medical science 33 years to discover how the device works.Life Magazine, in the 1960’s, listed Patrick Flanagan as one of the top scientists in the world. The genius who created Crystal Energy invented the Neurophone when he was 14 years of age. After years of mystery, including confiscation of the technology by the U.S. government, the Neurophone is available.

Creating Your Day With The Quantum Field

By Thomas Herold in Scientific Background on July 27th, 2006 /  2 Comments »

The most often referenced interview in the film “What the #$BLEEP*! Do We Know!?” is Dr. Joe Dispensa’s comments on creating his day. The following is the transcript of that part of interview.

“I wake up in the morning, and I consciously create my day the way I want it to happen. Now, sometimes, because my mind is examining all the things that I need to get done, it takes me a little bit to settle down, and get to the point, of where I’m actually intentionally creating my day. But here’s the thing.”

“When I create my day, and out of nowhere, little things happen that are so unexplainable, I know that they are the process or the result of my creation. And the more I do that, the more I build a neural net, in my brain, that I accept that that’s possible. Gives me the power and the incentive to do it the next day.”

“So, if we’re consciously designing our destiny, if we’re consciously, from a spiritual standpoint, throwing in what the idea that our thoughts can affect our reality or affect our life, because reality equals life. Then, I have this little pact that I have when I create my day.”

“I say, I’m taking this time to create my day, and I’m infecting the Quantum Field. Now, if it is in fact, the observer’s watching me the whole time that I’m doing this, and there is a spiritual aspect to myself. Then, show me a sign today, that you paid attention to any one of these things that I created, and bring them in a way that I won’t expect.”

“So, I’m as surprised as the- as the- at my ability to be able to experience these things, and make it so that I have no doubt that its come from you. And so, I live my life, in a sense, all day long, thinking about being a genius, or thinking about being the glory and the power of God, or thinking about being Unconditional Love.”

“I’ll use living as a genius, for example. And as I do that, during parts of the day, I’ll have thoughts that are so amazing, that cause a chill in my physical body, that have come from nowhere. But then, I remember that that thought has an associated energy, that’s produced an effect in my physical body.”

“Now, that’s a subjective experience, but the truth is is that I don’t think that unless I was creating my day to have unlimited thought, that that thought would come.”
