Fine, the whole thread except qetzal (and now some others). Any complaining about the guy failing to support his assertions is pretty ironic when it comes from someone whose first two posts on the topic are literally "No" and "No. There isn't". But good contribution!Izawwlgood wrote:Except for, you know, that dialog in which qetzal cited articles, and we commented on their findings, which were that it has no effect. Or that part where I linked an example of the type of websites that talk about the audio entrainment programs, which also claim to allow astral projection.
But good contribution!
To bring the signal to noise ratio of this post up, here is an article which reports concrete statistically significant differences in performance when comparing two types of binaural entrainment. It's not hard to use Google Scholar to find others.
Though, yes, as qetzal says, even if you accept the results of this experiment at face value, it really only demonstrates that playing some sounds at you while you're doing stuff affects how well you do stuff, which we all know to be true anyway. The claim that this works by fiddling with your brain waves somehow is pretty dubious, but not outside the realm of possibility.
