frequency (frê´kwen-sê) noun
1.The property or condition of occurring at frequent intervals.
2.Mathematics & Physics. The number of times a specified phenomenon occurs within a specified interval, as:. a. The number of repetitions of a complete sequence of values of a periodic function per unit variation of an independent variable. b. The number of complete cycles of a periodic process occurring per unit time. c. The number of repetitions per unit time of a complete waveform, as of an electric current.
3.Statistics. a. The number of measurements in an interval of a frequency distribution. b. The ratio of the number of times an event occurs in a series of trials of a chance experiment to the number of trials of the experiment performed.
[Latin frequentia, multitude, from frequêns, frequent-, crowded, numerous, frequent.]
Frequency, number of times that any regularly repeated event occurs in one second. Frequency is important in many fields of physical science, including mechanics and sound. Frequencies of vibrating objects cover a wide range of numbers. Earthquake tremors may have a frequency of less than 1, while electromagnetic oscillations of gamma rays may have frequencies written with 20 zeroes. In wave motion of all kinds, the frequency is given as the number of wave crests passing a point in a second. Frequency is expressed in hertz (Hz); a frequency of 1 Hz equals 1 cycle or oscillation per second. The unit is named for German physicist Heinrich Rudolf Hertz. Kilohertz (kHz), or thousands of cycles per second, megahertz (MHz), or millions of cycles per second, and gigahertz (GHz), or billions of cycles per second, describe high frequencies, like those of radio waves. Electromagnetic radiation may be described either by wavelength or by frequency.
Very High Frequency
Very High Frequency, usually abbreviated VHF, band of radio-signal frequencies, ranging from about 30 megahertz (MHz) to 300 Mhz, with corresponding wavelengths ranging from about 10 to 1 m (33 to 3 ft) (see Frequency; Radio; Wave Motion). This frequency is used for FM and amateur radio broadcasting and for television transmission.
Frequency Modulation (FM), system of radio transmission in which the carrier wave is modulated so that its frequency varies with the audio signal being transmitted. The first workable system for radio communication was described by American inventor Edwin H. Armstrong in 1936. Frequency modulation has several advantages over the alternate radio broadcasting system of amplitude modulation (AM). An FM system has greater freedom from interference and static; a higher signal-to-noise ratio; and can be operated in the very-high-frequency bands at which AM interference is frequently severe, allowing stations to operate on the same FM frequency within a few hundred miles of one another. These features, coupled with the comparatively low cost of equipment, resulted in rapid growth of FM in the years following World War II (1939-1945). FM can also transmit musical programs with a higher degree of fidelity. After FM began transmitting stereophonic broadcasts in 1961, it drew increasing numbers of music listeners.
frequency (frê'kwen-sê`) noun
The measure of how often a periodic event occurs, such as a signal going through a complete cycle. Frequency is usually measured in hertz (Hz), with 1 Hz equaling 1 occurrence (cycle) per second. In the United States, household electricity is alternating current with a frequency of 60 Hz. Frequency is also measured in kilohertz (kHz, 1000 Hz), megahertz (MHz, 1000 kHz), gigahertz (GHz, 1000 MHz), or terahertz (THz, 1000 GHz).
Communications and Media, 1933
Frequency modulation (FM) provides static-free radio reception. Edwin H. Armstrong of 1917 superheterodyne circuit fame proved in 1915 that radio waves and static have the same electrical characteristics. Having insisted that any attempt to eliminate static without some radically new principle would be fruitless, and that hundreds of patents for static eliminating devices are worthless, he perfects FM.
I really think that one day evolution will give the mind access to a real hard-core psychological frequency. It'll be like being able to have your brain able to deal with your environment in a certain level, but in an absolutely new way. Now accomplishment is something that's attainable if you can have your chakras in balance--if you want to use that word (chakra). You know when someone says it's an off day, they feel off or like there are others days when people feel like everything's working together. That's balance, which lends itself to getting things done. So to me that motto is whether or not you can be a creative entity, it's if you can align. That's what I hear with that placement. It's about the frequencies of your life and how to have a fucking fresh day.

The communication style of the planetary entity is broad-band, multiple frequency transmission. Its modus operandi is not unlike a high-powered, broadcast radio-satellite simultaneously transmitting multiple messages. Now, as a rule, most human minds can usually permit one thought or concept at a time. The occasional irregularity emerges with those minds willing and able to permit enough uncertainty to beget an awareness of multiplicity. This presupposes a recognition of and participation in a multidimensional reality wherein all dimensions are equally valid aspects of a greater changing whole. Preference for one level over another, at any given time and/or space, is a matter of personal style. If there was a name for this multi-purpose brain function it might be:
Reality Selection...a prerequisite for hearing the multi-vocal planetary entity.
As humans endure the multi-faceted awareness of simultaneously converging information sources, they learn to dial and fine tune those frequencies appropriate to the concerns of the time and place they are in. With persistence, the development of a reality selection circuit (in the Central Neural System) encourages High-Velocity Interaction with other humans by virtue of tolerance. (As humans distinguish and qualify various levels within their own being, they tend to tolerate internal contraries thus, vicariously allow for differences in others).

Frequency and rhythm activates the chemistry in the psychosomatic body/mind. Deep images, sensations and memories are re-ignited. These dance rituals are about the gestalt of the body, releasing regenerative, primitive, psychosexual energies, which we as 'civilised', mind driven, westerners, are convoluted about, with our awkward, retentive, neurotic, social programming. The DANCE CATHEXIS -- a group cathartic psychodrama -- on tribal, techno, beats, offers a potent temenos (sacred space) for reintegration of disconnected parts of the Self., which becomes a therapeutic SONIC HOMEOPATHY of sorts. So techno tunes are like tinctures, and when we dance to them they activate cellular memory, in our metabolism, like electronic enzymes. Combining this with PSYCHOTROPIC DRUGS creates a powerful catabolic, biochemical reaction.

For Pribram, this synthesis made him realize that the objective world does not exist, at least not in the way we are accustomed to believing. What is "out there" is a vast ocean of waves and frequencies, and reality looks concrete to us only because our brains are able to take this holographic blur and convert it into the sticks and stones and other familiar objects that make up our world. How is the brain (which itself is composed of frequencies of matter) able to take something as insubstantial as a blur of frequencies and make it seem solid to the touch? "The kind of mathematical process that Bekesy simulated with his vibrators is basic to how our brains construct our image of a world out there," Pribram states. In other words, the smoothness of a piece of fine china and the feel of beach sand beneath our feet are really just elaborate versions of the phantom limb syndrome.
According to Pribram this does not mean there aren't china cups and grains of beach sand out there. It simply means that a china cup has two very different aspects to its reality. When it is filtered through the lens of our brain it manifests as a cup. But if we could get rid of our lenses, we'd experience it as an interference pattern. Which one is real and which is illusion? "Both are real to me," says Pribram, "or, if you want to say, neither of them are real."
The fact is, way deep down, everybody knows their own vibrations, and they know what they vibrate to. And as everybody also knows, they have got to keep feeling those good vibrations. By it's nature, a vibration is a frequency wave. Your frequency wave is a form, because any frequency that vibrates for any amount of time can be mapped. It can be drawn on a graph. The mapping of any frequency is its form. In fact, all geometrical forms are mappings of different frequencies. A circle is one frequency pattern, a square is another, and a hexagon still another.

All energy possesses transductive wave properties. All wave property is susceptible to being transmitted resonantly as frequency overtones. A coherent cycle of frequencies is an octave, and in all octaves any tone can be sounded to produce its overtones in other octaves. Add to this the fact that any wave property can be transduced from one form to another through a particular medium, such as quartz crystal, and you have the basic principles underlying harmonic resonance.

James Clerk Maxwell
showed that light - the ultimate symbolic
manifestation of divinity - was itself only a certain range of
frequencies that happened to stimulate the two photosensitiveorbs
lodged in the human skull. Certain advanced solutions of his
equations also suggested the existence of a parallel cosmos, a mirrored
universe where electromagnetic Waves
move backward in time.

first of all, what are these things, and why do they want you to do this strange activity, and what's so great about it? well first of all, who are these things? we can be good scientists and make a list of the possibilities and then see which ones seem more likely... they could be a disencarnate race of hyperdimensional dwellers, who live in some kind of paraellel continuum just over some kind of energy barrier... and they're there all the time. you do have the feeling that they're there all the time, that it's ongoing, that you have just cut into their scene... so that's one possibilty... another possibility is that behind all these psychedelics and especially DMT that this is not a drug at all, that it is essentially a pay telephone of some sort to aliens. good ole National Enquirer type aliens who are using this as a communication domain... we can't land on the White House lawn, that would create panic and hysteria, so let's create a drug which inside the drug, we will be able to deal with people...
i think that's a very interesting avenue to pursue, this thing about frequency... somebody told me a story recently - it didn't involve DMT, it involved LSD, but this guy, a friend of his took quite a large dose of LSD, larger than intended, and they went to a party and they were so loaded when they got to this party, they realized they could not function as party-goers, so they just moved into a corner and sat to the backs to the wall, and watched this party rage in front of them... after about 20 minutes of sitting there, they both simultaenously noticed - it was a dance party - the music was sounding really strange, and everybody was moving very slowly.. and as they watched, the thing came to an absolute halt.. and people were just frozen, and there was absolute silence.. and at that point, the door at the other end of the room swung open... an elf entered the room, and moved among all these frozen peole, and then left by the door that it came in... and they both saw this and they could both tell that it was...the people in the room didn't know what happened because for them it occupied a microsecond... you know in Carlos Castaneda, who god knows is not the world's most reliable reporter on these thigns, regardless, there is this thing about stopping the world. maybe it's something like that, there is as you suggest, a frequency phase... this sort of leads into the third possibility having to do with the origin of these things...
in a sense, this is the hardest one to swallow, but in another sense, this is the most conservative explanation... because we have no evidence, other than the tabloids that this world is being visited by friendly visitors from Zenebel Ganubi or Zeti Reticuli or the Pleiades or anywhere else... to my mind, the evidence that this is happening is vanishingly small and totally underwhelming... the other possibilty, that there is some kind of paralleldimension in which these things exist, is also somewhat poorly supported... if we are talking about something which thinks, something which can communicate, something which is intelligent, then we should look to ourselves as the source of it... because we are the only intelligent communicating things we know within certain narrow definition of these things... it occured to me with greater and greater force and largely prompted by giving DMT occasionally to Tibetans and Amazonian Shamans.. and when you say to them, to the shamans in the Amazon, "what is happening with this stuff, and what are those little things in there?" they say "well those are ancestor spirits, didn't you know, haven't you heard?" shamanism is about doing, healing through the intercession of ancestor spirits... hmm.. ancestor spirits, let's get this traight... dead people is what you are talking about right? these are dead people... and maybe because i was raised catholic i resisted this like grim death... but i'm beginning to think that what you actually break into in that place is something that we might call an ecology of souls... is it possible to entertain the notion that at death, you don't actually just become worm food? and that something survives, in some other dimension, and it has this bizarre character to it, and that this explains their peculiar affection for humanity and their involvement somehow with our fate... well, this to me, is fairly mindbending as a possibility... if what is awaiting us at the end of the 20th century is the erasure of the boundary between the living and the dead, then we've all been conservative to our projection of what is going on...
