  • Strata 3, Book of Immersion V1, Flex and the Robo-Dog (Making Decisions)

    Welcome to Immersion, you have reached strata 3. Decisions are the cusp between reality and possibility. Decisive actions create a moving universe for sentient beings where chance itself can immobilise actions and defeat progress. The maker of decisions holds a power over themselves, and, more often than not, over others. **** Maybeline was sitting on Renyke's shoulder cleaning herself. Renyke made a point of collecting small berries and bugs which he stored in the pocket of his leather coat after squishing them dead and cataloguing their chemical compound and physiology. Catching himself in a window reflection he put on the dark glasses he had found in the pocket of the coat which now offered protection from the unfamiliar weather conditions. The winter sun was low in the sky. 'We look pretty good Maybeline, considering,' said Renyke, surprised by his vanity Mabeline nestled into his neck as they entered the foreboding street. **** They were in the centre of the busy metropolis. There was a lot of activity, people were shouting, bartering goods and moving quickly about the place. There were small groups of brightly dressed individuals leaning and congregating around stationary vehicles. Some were smoking pipes. Small hazy clouds hovered above them trapping the weak rays of the sun. The towering semi-derelict buildings created a darkened environment where small fires provided light and warmth. The vehicles seemed to be a mix of old-fashioned motors from transportation systems and helicopters. There were some long legged hybrids, electric solar and engine mashups that looked like menacing metal insects. The smells in the air were unfamiliar to Renyke but his detectors revealed them to be mostly comprised of chemicals: chlorine, sulfur, silicone, fluorine polymers and plasticisers. 'Hey, dude from the Brightside, you want some nibs?' A man hovered expectantly, somewhat close for comfort. He looked disheveled and seemed on edge as he checked all directions and avoided making eye contact Renyke. Renyke checked his POS database for 'nibs'. A drug used by nearly half the world's population that creates euphoria and doubles strength for a limited period. Can cause temporary and permanent coma. Long-term effects; brain rot. 'How much?' asks Renyke, who's algorithm was set to absorb all information about humans. 'I can do you a deal' said the man, '50*bits.... Or the Rat'. Renyke checked the POS for bits. .....Bits: street talk for gold, silver, uranium and other metal nuggets used in the black and grey economy without government authority.... 'I have no bits,' said Renyke. 'Hahahahahaha'.........' see you in hell brother!' shouted the man as he danced away on long legs and a demeanor that seemed at odds with his situation in this corner of Hell, this Godforsaken place. In the midcasts, happiness came with security and expectation: digital and technological lives were formatted for predictability and reliability. Everything was clean and sanitised. A fat man in a fur coat whistled at Renyke, 'Hey girly, you want some dirty action? I'll take that rodent off your hands if you need some sexy time.' A warning comes from the POS. Danger. Immediate. Ground Level. A robot dog was barking loudly at Maybeline who was now snarling and making a shrieking noise. 'Wow, not so cute after all,' said Renyke. For a millisecond Renyke analysed the possibilities of his next actions. The options were endless. The POS created a fleeting map of most probable scenarios, outcomes that sprawled a multidimensional time map like a mathematical cobweb. He could immobilise the robo-dog, tame it and use it for a million ends, sell it, break it up and separate its useful component parts, analyse its database for information, take its operating system, he could even ignore it. As a droid and an excellent chess player, single decisions about actions that Renyke could make foresaw a million possibilities. Theoretically, this allowed for finely tuned activities and performance with very little or zero harm caused to his owners. Indeed, this forward thinking ability had marked machines as superior in operation to humans who were narrow thinkers and only able to make selfish and immediate decisions based on emotional desire without reference to consequences. The dog opened its mouth and bit Renyke's ankle. © 2023 Sarnia de la Maré Strata 1 Strata 2. Strata 3. Strata 4. Strata 5. Strata 6. Strata 7. Strata 8. Strata 9. Strata 10. Strata 11. Strata 12.

  • Binaural Beats, Rife Vibes™ and Music Therapy by Sarnia de la Maré FRSA

    Let’s delve into the fascinating world of binaural beats and Rife vibrations, exploring how they intersect with music therapy. Binaural Beats: Harmonizing Brainwaves Through Sound What Are Binaural Beats? Binaural beats are an intriguing auditory phenomenon that occurs when two slightly different frequency tones are played simultaneously—one in each ear through headphones. The brain perceives the difference between these frequencies as a rhythmic beat. For example, if you listen to a 300 Hz tone in one ear and a 310 Hz tone in the other, your brain will create a binaural beat at 10 Hz. How Do They Work? The brain combines the two input frequencies, resulting in a third perceived frequency—the binaural beat. These beats can influence brainwave patterns, promoting relaxation, focus, or even altered states of consciousness. Here’s a breakdown of common brainwave frequencies and their associated mental states: Delta (0.5–4 Hz): Deep sleep, healing, and regeneration. Theta (4–8 Hz): Creativity, meditation, and deep relaxation. Alpha (8–13 Hz): Calm focus, daydreaming, and light meditation. Beta (13–30 Hz): Alertness, concentration, and active thinking. Gamma (30–100 Hz): High-level cognitive processing and insight. Benefits of Binaural Beats in Music Therapy Stress Reduction: Listening to binaural beats at specific frequencies can help reduce stress and anxiety. Theta and alpha frequencies promote relaxation and emotional balance. Enhanced Focus: Beta frequencies can improve concentration and cognitive performance. Ideal for studying or creative work. Sleep Aid: Delta frequencies encourage deep sleep and restorative rest. Mood Regulation: Binaural beats may positively impact mood by influencing neurotransmitters and brain chemistry. Rife Vibrations: Harmonizing Cellular Resonance What Are Rife Vibrations? Rife vibrations, named after inventor Royal Rife, refer to specific frequencies believed to resonate with various cells and pathogens. Rife’s work focused on using resonant frequencies to destroy harmful microorganisms. How Do They Work? Rife believed that each microorganism had a unique resonant frequency. By exposing them to their specific frequencies, he theorized that their cellular structures would break down, leading to their demise. While Rife’s original claims remain controversial, the concept of vibrational healing persists. Applications in Music Therapy Frequency-Specific Music: Composing music with Rife-like frequencies could potentially target specific health conditions. For instance, using frequencies associated with immune system support or pain relief. Cellular Resonance: Music therapists can explore soundscapes that resonate with different bodily systems. Imagine music designed to harmonize with the heart, lungs, or digestive system. Combining Binaural Beats and Rife Vibrations for Rife Vibes™ Customized Sessions: Music therapists can create personalized sessions by blending binaural beats and Rife-like frequencies. Tailoring the experience to an individual’s needs enhances therapeutic outcomes. Deep Healing: Imagine a session where binaural beats induce relaxation, while Rife-like frequencies target specific health imbalances. In summary, both binaural beats and Rife vibrations offer exciting possibilities in music therapy. Whether you’re seeking stress relief, focus enhancement, or cellular resonance, these sonic tools can harmonize mind, body, and spirit. Remember to consult with a professional music therapist for personalized guidance and safe practices.

  • Shall I Compare Thee to a Dating App? by Quillmatic Bardinator™ About Grindr Tinder and Bumble

    A Sonnet for the Digital Heart Shall I compare thee to a dating app? Thou art more swiping and more algorithmic. Rough profiles oft shake the lonely heart, And lonely hearts find love in digital seas. Sometimes, too hot the Tinder flame doth burn, And often is the Bumble match unreturned, And yet, thy legs doth open wide, Revealing glimpses of love’s sweet surprise. But softly now! What light through Grindr window breaks? It is heaven, and Cupid is the take. Arise, fair swipers, and let us chat away, For love awaits in pixels and emoji. So long as profiles last and phones remain, This modern sonnet shall sing love’s refrain. ©2024 Quillmatic Bardinator Adapted from Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18. Learn more
