Neural Artist/Researcher

  • Paras Kaul - aka Brainwave Chick

  • Performances Call Attention to Brain Matters

  • Use Brainwaves to Animate Multimedia Elements (images, movies, 3D digital objects, and sound)

  • Brainwave Gaming Increases Potential of the Brain (brainpower)

  • Brainwaves Interact with Physical Matter Outside the Body

Extend educational methods l.jpg

Extend Educational Methods

  • By Recognizing the Bio-energetic Aspect of Being Human

  • By Incorporating Neurological Learning into

    Educational Programs

  • By Expanding Awareness for Self-Healing and Nonverbal Brainwave Communication

  • Similar to Eastern Mindfulness Training in Practice

  • Next Step: Brainwave Learning Games Online

What is a brainwave game l.jpg

What is a Brainwave Game

  • Brainwave Game is a 3-D Object Oriented Environment Designed to Interact with Brainwaves

  • Created with the Quartz Composer Application

    Uses the Quartz Editor to Create Patches

  • Brainwave Data Interact with Object and FunctionPatches

  • Objects are Multimedia Elements

  • Data Trigger Brainwave Switches Using EEG

  • Trains the Brain for Greater Brainpower

  • More Brainpower Increases Latent Capabilities

Brainwave switches l.jpg

Brainwave Switches

Box like structures isolate areas of brainwave data and

encapsulate parameter values defined by each boxacting as a brain wave switch. Switches assign neural

control to multimedia elements as object patches and to volume and filtering in audio tracks.

Playing a brainwave game l.jpg

Playing a Brainwave Game

  • Strap on a Headband with 3 Electrodes

  • Quiet the Mind

  • Practice Stillness

  • Monitor Brainwaves Using EEG

  • Practice Brainwave Switching to Animate Objects and to Make Sound

  • Analyze Body, Mind, and Brain State

  • Experiential Gaming

Brainwave switches change

the color of the lotus and

movement of the water in

Quicktime Movies

Brainwave communities l.jpg

Brainwave Communities

  • Upload Brainwaves to Servers

  • Download Brainwaves from Servers

  • Use Brainwave Data with GamingEnvironments

  • Upload Quartz Movies and Animate withBrainwaves

  • Create Online Brainwave Communities

  • Participants Practice Nonverbal Communication by Brainwave

Brainwave coherence health l.jpg

Brainwave Coherence & Health

  • Sustained Coherence in Low FrequenciesIncreases Relaxation and Focuses Mental Attention

  • Eliminates Noise in Brain Wave Data

  • Creates Balance in Body Chemistry

  • Decreases Heart Rate, Blood Pressure, and Shortness of Breath

  • Evens Respiration for Deep Breathing and Increases Gastrointestinal Activity

Brainwave coherence l.jpg

Brainwave Coherence

Brainwave coherence on the left

of the image indicates coherence

in the alpha, theta, delta bands.

Left and right hemisphere data that

occurred the same time as the coherence

data in the top left image.

Left and right hemisphere data that

occurred the same time as the coherence

data in the bottom left image.

Slight brainwave coherence is indicated in this data.

Perceptual awareness l.jpg

Perceptual Awareness

  • Eliminates Stress From the Body/Mind

  • Prepares the Body and Mind for Creative Thought and Problem Solving.

  • Activates Natural Brain Systems

  • Allows Activity that Seems Humanly Impossible

“Perceptual Awareness of the SubtleVibratory Aspects of Reality Become More Dominant as Coherence Increases.”

Karl Pribram

Nonverbal communication l.jpg

Nonverbal Communication

“In our deepest states of consciousness, we are able to explore multiple universes and multi-dimensional projection spaces. Projections of this kind may go beyond daily perceptive space to deeper cognitive spaces.”

Dr. John Lilly, M.D.

Brainwave audio l.jpg

Brainwave Audio

  • MAX /MSP and GarageBand Applications and any Music Application that Supports Audio Unit (AU)

  • IBVA4 AUPlug-in Module for Audio Unit

  • Create Musical Compositions as Other Dimensional Projections.

Experiential learning l.jpg

Experiential Learning

  • Game Begins as Soon as You are ConnectedVia Bluetooth Peripheral

  • Learn While Playing

  • Brainpower Increases the More You Play

  • Self-Analysis by Studying Psychic and Bio Feedback

  • Analyze How the Body Feels in High Beta, Medium Beta, Low Beta, Alpha, Theta, & Delta

  • Brainwave Switch In and Out by Will

Visualizations create the physical universe l.jpg

Visualizations Createthe Physical Universe

Visualize and Perceive What Previously Has Not Been Visible or Audible.

Visualize the World at Peace.
