This makes me want to bring home my childhood piano from my moms and set it up in the basement to play for my kids.

Why do you have kids in your basement?


jpradolin t1_iu4c1am wrote

Oh wait, you don't? I thought that was the norm on Reddit?


RuthTheWidow t1_iu270zs wrote

Oh man, Reddit takes some strange turns in the comments. (Sigh)

Same here, growing up in a household where every child is taught piano. It just brings back good memories and I hope it can help my kids too!

I remember that temporal lobe damage is tied to extreme religiosity and that trans-cranial magnetic stimulation experiments suggest activity in the temporal lobe can result in perception of spooky presences. Has there been much work done that explores how sound and auditory processing is tied to beliefs in the supernatural?

Because dreams have always had a spot in spiritual belief systems, and it seems like this research fits right into that line of thought.

Why do I ask? I saved a binaural beats track out of curiosity and listened to it before bed. Nightmares. Did some ABA testing on myself, and I'm convinced that the track causes nightmares for me. ABA on the wife. Vivid, wild dreams. I've been curious about how sound messes with heads ever since.

Which track?


PiedmontIII t1_iu1603n wrote

Not named, from an outdated app from around 2013 that was taken off the play store, probably because it wasn't maintained. I still have it, but I don't know how to get it off my phone because it's like embedded(?) in the app. I haven't listened to it in years.

I've had less consistent results with other binaural audio tracks found on spotify and youtube, though, if you want to try those out.

Wholesome inversion of A Clockwork Orange's Ludovico's Technique.

yooo that's the image from the amazing album called The Light Years by Aviations

Ohhh that's a very interesting one, thanks for linking this. I would listen to this right now, seems like a great album! Hopefully it's amazing as it seems

The whole thing is fascinating, but if I weren't already intrigued, they would have had me for sure at "a specialist form of nightmare therapy," I can tell you that much!


ashlaev t1_iu3plyx wrote

Yeah that was a very interesting topic for me too, I wonder if it will work for me

Musician here, I would love to know exactly what chord they played so I can try it at home. All it said in the article was “neutral”


RegallyHoot51 t1_iu3ohr6 wrote

Someone posted the whole article on here, maybe it's included there? but yeah, it is very intriguing

I had a nightmare for the first time in a long time. It was me and my family in a posy apocalyptic world, searching for shelter. We found a well stocked home that looked safe. Then when we started living there, vampires showed up and chased us off. I often sleep with youtube going in the background so some of the audio may leak in and make me loopy. I can see this working but I find it hard to sleep to music. I find the voices of others to be soothing.


icyclopys t1_iu3j5lq wrote

Same here, voices are just so different when it comes to sleeping. It just makes me feel more relaxed than music itself, weird how some people can just sleep when they're listening to music


Lulu_42 t1_iu3qovf wrote

I don’t like sleeping to music, either. But I have some tv shows and movies that are only associated with happy memories and have soothing noises - The Office and Shrek, for example.

^(I believe certain colored and levels of lighting in the room, while sleeping or falling asleep, can have a similar effect on dreams.)

PTSD sufferers rejoice - as much as they can, anyway.

Don't tell me they have claimed to have discovered sleep music.

Dreams are a clue to underlying psychological happenings - you don't want to alter these, they are an attempt by the subconscious to make something known to the conscious mind. Pay attention to your dreams - the good and the bad.

Neurolinguistics and hypnosis has been using this since the 70's. They use the term anchor. Anything can become an anchor for emotional state. And there are techniques to "program" anchors into the brain.

Sadly the mental health sciences didn't pay as much attention to NLP as salespeople and advertisers did. So it became a force for manipulation alongside NLP practitioners using it purely to help people.

Yes it is a dangerous and double-edged sword. Luckily though, awareness of it is also a remedy for it. Anchors can be neutralized or reprogrammed.

So if you ever run across an evil hearted monster who anchors nightmares into your brain, find a reputable NLP coach to help you undo it.
