The science behind this concept of Mid brain Activation is the technique of optimizing the function of our middle brain, which is the ‘bridge’ between the left and right brain. Having this ‘bridge’ activated allows for the retrieval of information between the left and the right brain, which leads to more efficiency in learning and absorbing information. It also brings out and strengthens characteristics such as creativity, memory, application skills, self-confidence, and the ability to concentrate.
Many of us have heard that we are either left-brained or right-brained and have capabilities and qualities that define how we learn and gain knowledge. Midbrain Activation allows the brain to function as a whole, rather than only utilizing one part of the brain. Most theories suggest that right-brain dominant individuals are guided by the more emotional, intuitive right hemisphere while those who are left-brain dominant respond in sequential, logical ways, guided by the left hemisphere of the brain. Therefore, individuals who are middle brain oriented can have strong qualities from both hemispheres. They can benefit from logic from the left and intuition from the right. This is the basic principle behind Mid brain Activation.
Mid brain Activation allows the middle brain act as a control panel for left and right hemispheres. This activates both parts of the brain and enhances the capacity and ability to learn.
In order to awaken this part of the brain, it is necessary to stimulate a hormonal discharge by sending a special vibration. For this scientific alpha-theta level music are played where apparently only children can receive these waves effectively. In general, theta and alpha waves belong to babies and children. Since these waves belong to the subconscious mind babies and children feel easier to learn something or receive and follow somebody else’s words. They also have unlimited imagination compared to adults.
During the mid-brain activation, a child learns how to enter the condition of meditative trans in order to be able to ”see” with eyes closed (Blind-folded). Archimedes himself invented a physical theory while he was relaxing himself, that is, when he immersed his body into the bath tub, where then the”AHA Phenomenon” rose automatically.
Even Einstein normally played a violin first to let his brain relax and thus able to invent new inventions in the field of Physics. So, it’s clear now, relaxed condition will take our brain toward alpha-theta waves where our brain’s performance will be very maximum. This is what we called entering a genius condition.
The term “genius” here doesn’t mean someone with IQ above 130, rather, it’s the condition that if we are able to decrease the brain wave down to alpha-theta, our brain will function optimally. When the brain functions optimally, all human senses will be in their top performances including the capability of intuition, so that a child is able to do activities with his/her eyes closed (Blind-folded).
