The Future of Binaural Beats
The future of Binaural Beats probably looks something like this:
1. The world recognizes that Binaural Beats are potentially efficacious for modulating central nervous system excitation.
2. The world incorporates them into guided introspective programs.
3. The world recognizes that Binaural Beats are only 1 component of a more comprehensive personal development program.
4. The world moves beyond Binaural Beats and recognizes it's self-liberated nature.
This is one of the most critical processes that could occur for those who are interested in Binaural Beats, because we believe that they represent only one of several components of a comprehensive personal growth and development program. Simply listening to Binaural Beats is not sufficient for profound personal transformation - Indeed, this process must be accompanied by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Setting Personal Objectives, Selecting a Strategy, and Taking Massive Action.
Through recognizing that Binaural Beats are only practical as a preliminary state-induction tool in preparation for a greater degree of self-regulation practices, one may utilize this auditory technology without developing a psychological dependence upon it.
There are many who would claim that through simply purchasing their binaural brainwave entrainment programs, you will become Enlightened at the touch of a button or experience deep and profound meditation without any need for self-regulation or continued training. However, the research has demonstrated that individuals must also utilize deliberate attention placement in order to maximize the efficacy of Binaural Beats.
We promote the use of Binaural Beats only insofar as they prime the nervous system to access a particular group of psychological states, but the next step requires self-regulation. Training in neurofeedback may serve as an effective means by which to move toward this next step, because these systems require self-regulation as means by which to modulate computer signals. However, we also encourage individuals to move beyond neurofeedback in order to ensure that they are capable of self-regulation independent of the computer system or other exogenous stimuli. In conclusion, binaural beats may be beneficial within specified parameters, but the individual's capacity for self-regulation is primary.
