The Dream Machine

The Dream Machine is quite a simple idea but really effective. It is basically a cylindrical device that has a calculated pattern cut out and a bright light bulb inside. As the pattern spins, it sends out the pattern of light outwards. The idea is that you look into the light with your eyes closed and the constant flicker of light on your eyelids entrains the brain after a while and you start to see colourful geometric patterns and experience quite a blissful state (around 10hz, which produces alpha brainwaves). There is a box in the centre containing the device and a speaker that plays a drone that is also tuned with the frequency of the light. The beauty of it is that when you open your eyes, the effect almost immediately stops. We've had all kinds enjoying it, including families. Some people really GET IT and go deep in meditation, and others just enjoy the amazing inner visuals created by the hypnagogic effect or just chill out in there.

The Pyramid

The Pyramid is aligned with the four compass directions, elements, associated colours, etc and produces a gradient in line with Phi and the Pyramids at Giza. In the centre is a 3D hanging Merkaba for activating and charging the "light body". The entire structure is quite a sight in the day and comes alive at night with it's coloured lights representing the elements and is very good for meditation and "charging up". In theory this structure draws energy from above and below in a funnel like fashion and can be extremely powerful in ritual and meditation.

Why The 100th Monkey?

When a new wave of consciousness reaches a peak number of beings, the "x"th being to reach that new awareness (i.e. the 100th monkey), will trigger a leap in consciousness, spreading this new knowledge to all other beings. This concept originates from the research below....

The Japanese monkey, Macaca Fuscata, had been observed in the wild for a period of over 30 years.

In 1952, on the island of Koshima, scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand. The monkey liked the taste of the raw sweet potatoes, but they found the dirt unpleasant.

An 18-month-old female named Imo found she could solve the problem by washing the potatoes in a nearby stream. She taught this trick to her mother. Her playmates also learned this new way and they taught their mothers too.

This cultural innovation was gradually picked up by various monkeys before the eyes of the scientists. Between 1952 and 1958 all the young monkeys learned to wash the sandy sweet potatoes to make them more palatable. Only the adults who imitated their children learned this social improvement. Other adults kept eating the dirty sweet potatoes.

Then something startling took place. In the autumn of 1958, a certain number of Koshima monkeys were washing sweet potatoes -- the exact number is not known. Let us suppose that when the sun rose one morning there were 99 monkeys on Koshima Island who had learned to wash their sweet potatoes. Let's further suppose that later that morning, the hundredth monkey learned to wash potatoes.

THEN IT HAPPENED! 

By that evening almost everyone in the tribe was washing sweet potatoes before eating them. The added energy of this hundredth monkey somehow created an ideological breakthrough!

But notice: A most surprising thing observed by these scientists was that the habit of washing sweet potatoes then jumped over the sea...Colonies of monkeys on other islands and the mainland troop of monkeys at Takasakiyama began washing their sweet potatoes.

Thus, when a certain critical number achieves an awareness, this new awareness may be communicated from mind to mind.

Although the exact number may vary, this Hundredth Monkey Phenomenon means that when only a limited number of people know of a new way, it may remain the conscious property of these people.

But there is a point at which if only one more person tunes-in to a new awareness, a field is strengthened so that this awareness is picked up by almost everyone!
