Binaural-Beats, a CD publisher focusing on experiemental sound to aid in meditation, has created a CD that has been dubbed "The First Digital Drug". Binaural-Beats states that the customer simply has to put on stereo headphones and listen to the CD to achieve inebriation, leading to "an ultra-happy mood and an increased confidence!". Binaural-Beats has supplied the frequencies used in making the CD, in order to illustrate which frequencies affect brainwaves, and what the effects are. Frequencies most interested customers will take note of are (from Binaural-Beats.com):
14 Hz - Awakeness, alert. Concentration on tasks
20.215 Hz - Brings about safe LSD-25 effects
30 Hz - Used for safe marijuana effects
33 Hz - Hypersensitivity, C. consciousness
38 Hz - Endorphin release
If such a method of altering brainwaves was truly available, and was a reusable experience, then 30 dollars seems to be asking very little. A product like this would be ideal for drug users trying to taper off their usage, or for the curious civilian who perhaps has wanted to experience the effects of drugs without the risk of physical damage.
