Transcript of Digital Drugs
Some sites provide binaural beats that have innocuous effects. For example, some claim to help you develop extrasensory powers like telepathy and psychokinesis.
Other sites offer therapeutic binaural beats. They help you relax or meditate. help you lose weight or eliminate gray hair.
However, most sites are more sinister. They sell audio files (“doses”) that supposedly mimic the effects of alcohol and marijuana.
But it doesn’t end there. You’ll find doses that purportedly mimic the effects of LSD, crack, heroin and other hard drugs. There are also doses of a sexual nature.
Nothing like a good inflammatory title and subjective article to get the general public to immediately reject and denounce something they know nothing about. After looking into these, I can see how they cause an interesting sensation in the brain and some visual stimulation, but as for all of the screaming, "freaking out", convulsing and "addiction" it looks like it's what you take in with you; these kids are "psyching themselves out", and making a big hullabaloo from something that really is harmless.
9% say "I have felt the effects with
only one dose"
10% say "Only a few doses work for me"
15% say "It
17% say "It's a complete placebo, I have never felt anything"
20% say "I have felt the effects almost
every single time"
29% say Some doses work,some don't"
I depends on the "dose" you are listening to.
The brain processes rhythmic stimulus as electrical impulses. The goal of digital drugs is to purposely control the electrical impulses and encourage the listener’s brain to synchronize its brain waves with the binaural beats. This synchronization, which is achieved by selecting binaural tones within a particular frequency level, is called Frequency Following Response (FFF) and is part of a concept called entrainment. Entrainment, the synchronization of one biological rhythm to another, is not a new concept. It forms the basis for many types of meditation and medical biofeedback.
how do they work?
what are their effects?
Digital drugs, more accurately called binaural beats, are sounds that are thought to be capable of changing brain wave patterns and inducing an altered state of consciousness similar to that effected by taking drugs or achieving a deep state of meditation.
Actually, there are a minority of people who can have their state of consciousness altered by flashes of light at certain frequencies.
In fact, it may trigger full blown seizures in some (photosensitive epilepsy) but also causes minor and subtle seizure activity in others and in some can stimulate memories or images, or perhaps just cause an ‘odd’ feeling
Also called binaural beats, are auditory processing artifacts, or apparent sounds, caused by specific physical stimuli. This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove and earned greater public awareness in the late 20th century based on claims coming from the alternative medicine community that binaural beats could help induce relaxation, meditation, creativity and other desirable mental states. The effect on the brainwaves depends on the difference in frequencies of each tone: for example, if 300 Hz was played in one ear and 310 in the other, then the binaural beat would have a frequency of 10 Hz.
The brain produces a phenomenon resulting in low-frequency pulsations in the amplitude and sound localization of a perceived sound when two tones at slightly different frequencies are presented separately.

What Are They?
Some allegedly help you overcome addiction or anxiety. Others purport to
