Reaching higher forms of thought/consciousness is the main reason why I have invested so much of my life building my system and music collection. This listening experience is something close to my soul so to speak, since this board is about home and health I just thought I would share one of my experiences listening to "noise" music. This type of music helps me meditate and calm down, still the mind.
I tried to demonstrate what I am talking about here in this youtube video of my system:
However I thought I would explain what I am talking about. Specific sound frequencies can help your mind reach the Theta state (state of meditation, etc...) while still being awake. There's lots of music that I listen to whether it's ambient or noise music that helps me relax so much that I get into a different plane of consciousness. I don't want to get too into the esoteric rambling here, just wondered if anyone else listens to music specifically to reach an inner realm which is not usually available without sitting there, relaxing, listening, etc... probably everyone here I would gather :)
Jazz and Classical are also very good relaxation and thought processing genres as well, especially Piano works.
