i recently was told that concentrating on a pleasent memory from the past one generates alpha waves which have the advantage of "slowing down" the brain which means less o2 consumption which in turn means longer breath-hold times.

does anyone have any specific information on that?



Nothing specific, but I've tried the technique and it has had positive results for me.

Also, I'm currently experimenting with a little electronic box that sends out audio / visual pulses ( using sound and lights ) using oscillations between 2 - 20 Mhz. It seems to fast track your brain into alpha patterns, and can calm your system down / send you to sleep very quickly.zzz

Unfortunately my experiments combining this with dry statics have so far been a disappointment - it hasn't made much of a difference and if anything, is a distraction. It might work better just before a static session, but I haven't tried that out yet.
