Proteus Advanced Light Sound Stimulation System

'Light and Sound' systems use completely natural forms of stimulation to gently lead to into a variety of beneficial states of mind.

WHAT IS A LIGHT AND SOUND MACHINE? Utilizing light and sound pulses at a specified frequency, these machines stimulate the brain wave activity of the user, leading the user's mind from normal waking consciousness to a variety of altered states of consciousness.

The specific frequency ranges and their associated mental states are as follows:

BETA 13-30 Hz: Normal waking state; attention directed to surroundings. Includes agitated, restless/"monkey mind" states which are especially amenable to treatment with light and sound stimulation.
ALPHA 8-13 Hz: Relaxed, tranquil, daydreaming, "inward awareness" state.
THETA 4-8 Hz: Borderline sleep; meditation state with access to the
unconscious; creativity, learning, inspiration.
DELTA 1-4 Hz: Deep, dreamless sleep; trance state.
Light and sound can enhance the work of physicians, psychologists, therapists, body workers, any harried professional, as well as the individual experimenter who wishes to explore altered states of consciousness, awareness expansion and sensory stimulation.

With special GanzFrames over your closed eyes and headphones over your ears, you are immersed in colorful geometric jewel like patterns and entrancing sounds. The light and sound pulse rate shifts from state to state as the session progresses; brain wave activity will follow the pulse rate of the machine and fall into synch with the changes.

The following are some of the areas being explored by users of these machines: psychological stress relief, deep relaxation, assistance in falling asleep, memory improvement, increased learning, stabilizing emotions, increased intellectual focus, lucid dreaming, sensory stimulation, increased physical energy. While some of these benefits have been substantiated by research studies, these machines are experimental and results will vary from person to person.

The entrainment mechanism is both visual and aural. Sound and music have been used for centuries in may cultures o manipulate consciousness. Drums, chants, and environmental sounds like wind and rain all provide strong mental pictures and associations. Pleasant sounds are much more enjoyable and relaxing than one-note beeps or tones, such as those used by other machines. Synetic Systems incorporates the most sophisticated sound generation circuitry of any light/sound device, employing digital synthesizers to generate complex wave forms, rich two- -and three- note harmonies, and moving audio sculptures. Use of special "audiostrobe" CD's can fully synchronize the lights with the audio program.

Binaural beat generation is a sound feature on most Synetic Systems products. Using two sound synthesizers in the audio circuit, and by specifying slightly different sound frequencies for the left and right channels, it is possible to induce a third frequency which is the difference between the left and right in the mind of the user. This is known as a binaural beat frequency generation


I started using Proteus advanced light sound stimulation system 3 months ago and was a little scepticle of it as i've only tried using it one time before. I was very impressed though with how quickly it works. It does exactly as it says it is going to do. Within minutes i was in a relaxed state. One caveat I have is that it uses pulsing lights(strobes) which can cause seizures in some people. So if you are planning on using these be careful and take proper precautions.

Ray has also published 2 other  books. One is called called Transcend: Nine Steps to Living Well Forever. Co-authored by Terry Grossman M.D, in it they discuss their program so that readers can live long enough (and remain healthy long enough) to take full advantage of the biotech and nanotech advances that have already begun and will be occurring at an accelerating pace during the years ahead.

The other is the Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever where Ray shows us startling discoveries in the areas of genomics, biotechnology, and nanotechnology occur practically every day.  The rewards of this research, some of it as spectacular as science fiction, are practically in our grasp. Fantastic Voyage shows us how we can use these new technologies to live longer than previously imaginable.

The authors take the reader on a journey to undreamed-of vitality with a comprehensive investigation into the cutting-edge science regarding diet, supplementation, genetics, detoxification, and the hormones involved with aging and youth.  By following their program, which includes such simple recommendations as eating a balanced, low-glycemic-index diet, and taking powerful anti-aging nutritional supplements, anyone will be able to add years of healthy, active life.
"This visionary book provides a state-of-the-art synthesis of the latest evidence on aging." (Dean Ornish, M.D., developer of the Opening Your Heart program)
"A concise yet comprehensive journey that accurately recounts the past and present state of our collective knowledge." (Dean Kamen, physicist and inventor of the IBOT Mobility System and Segway Human Transporter, and recipient of the National Medal of Technology)
"Fantastic Voyage boldly challenges conventional wisdom about aging and illness and offers groundbreaking solutions to remain young and healthy indefinitely. (John Gray, Ph.D., author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus)
"Anyone can find it easy to implement action that will enhance their health. (George King, M.D., professor of medicine, Harvard Medical School)
