Anyone want to have a crack at explaining this? :o Or rather, an opinion? :3

From a physics point of view, this really has nothing to do with anything. Complete nonsense. They didn't discuss sinusoidal wave forms or anything, despite their entire philosophy being these three "waves". I think once they mentioned the word "amplitude" and I got excited, only to be let down again.

They didn't mention frequency, wave propagation, nothing. You would think, if your entire philosophy of life revolved around waves....you would take the time to study them a bit more.

I vote your average mumbo-jumbo. Its religion, what else can you say?

I will point out that our brains have very complex behavior, as far as waves go. Again, I'm no neuroscientist, but I know we have alpha, beta, and things. That they vary depending on activities. But those can be measured and recorded and analyzed and manipulated. These spiritual waves cannot unless (gasp) you have extensive spiritual training first. Whereas five minutes of bio-feedback training can help anyone manipulate their brain waves. But then....five minutes of bio-feedback doesn't sell, or get donations.

Keep an eye on those kinds of sites. They usually want money in one form or another. This one does too, if you look closely.

I have to agree with Levinus on this one.The theories they put forward have no basis in conventional thinking.
We always have to doubt the purpose of such sites,which proclaim to know without doubt,this is the way it is!
Nobody knows!
