Direct Download of Information Into the Brain?

By Gloria Adams

How can a child learn a language in no time, while an adult has to go through a time consuming series of memorizing words, grammar and structural rules? How come anything the child observes during the age between 2 and 7 is like a direct download into the brain, without any effort or strain?

If you take an EEG reading of an adult brain, you will see a variety of brainwave frequencies. Researchers have divided the millions of possible brainwave combinations into five general frequency ranges: delta, theta, alpha, beta and gamma (lowest to highest). The brainwave pattern of an adult will change depending on what the person is doing - sleeping, analyzing, relaxing, etc.; the higher the alertness of the brain, the higher the brainwave frequency.

A child between the ages of 2 and 7, on the other hand, while in an awake state, does not have any of the higher frequencies. The child's brain has not ramped up to alpha, beta or gamma yet and is operating predominantly in theta.

Because there are no high brainwave frequencies present at that time, there is no consciousness to analyze and evaluate before information is accepted into the subconscious mind. When the brain operates in theta, like in the case of young children, any information that is presented, is like a direct download. If a child hears from the parents "You are not good enough," for example, the "You are not good enough" program is downloaded and installed. It will run for the rest of the person's life, unless it is uninstalled and replaced by a different program.

Unlike children, if an adult is learning something new, the conscious mind (characterized by the higher frequencies) is constantly analyzing; trying to understand and evaluate. The process of direct downloading is not possible anymore for the adult mind. Before any information is allowed into the subconscious mind, it has to pass the evaluation of the conscious mind.

From the brainwaves perspective, what the child has and the adult does not, is the predominance of theta brainwaves. When the brain is predominantly in theta, the door to the subconscious mind is open and allows for any corrections and improvements.

Now, thanks to modern technology, going into the theta brainwave state is easy and does not require extensive training. There is a process called brainwave entrainment, or brainwave synchronization. When the brain is presented with a rhythmic stimulus, it tends to synchronize it's brainwave frequency with the frequency of the stimulus through a natural process called "frequency following response."

There are many brainwave meditation audios offered in today's market to stimulate the brain into a desired brainwave state, including that of theta and low alpha. When in this state through the processes of visualization or affirmations, one can successfully alter old patterns of behavior, improve performance in any desired area, and expand knowledge.
