When he measured four subjects who practiced only Transcendental Meditation, they didn't have the same high level of brain wave coherence. "Those who practice the TM-Sidhi program have cultivated the habit of sitting in silence and allowing the mental activity to easily pass through awareness," Dr. Travis said.

And they showed higher theta2 coherence, which is associated with attending to internal mental processes. The latter finding explains the participants' experience that the Vedic recitations felt as though they weren't external sounds but rather internal vibrations. Those who only practiced Transcendental Meditation had higher gamma coherence, with gamma being associated with focusing on an external object. Hence, their experience of the recitation as an outer experience. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony...@yahoo.com> wrote : Number One Fabulous. Thanks. Can discern it now.
