Brainwaves are a crucial part of accelerated learning techniques. It’s proven that when individuals move out of normal waking brainwaves (beta) into other brainwaves (alpha, theta, delta and gamma) they enter the ideal state in which to absorb new information. Whether the learning is analyzing complex equations, or memorizing facts, or becoming an expert in martial arts, it makes no difference. 


We address brainwaves and brain frequencies in our conspiracy thriller The Ninth Orphan (The Orphan Trilogy, #1) – and here’s a relevant excerpt from that novel:


With the help of virtual reality and biofeedback technologies, the orphans were taught how to guide their minds to reach certain brain frequencies – like Alpha, Theta and Delta – at will. The purpose of slipping into these particular frequencies was to allow the right brain to take over, as opposed to the left-brained consciousness dominant in most people. Whenever the orphans needed to access their higher intelligences, they would enter a daydream and simply intuit the answers. That way, they could bypass thinking, and just know. Within the Omega family, intuition was favored over logical thought patterns.


Our children at Chicago’s fictitious Pedemont Orphanage use brainwave generators and biofeedback machines to reach the optimal frequency for study. This method of altering the mind is known as brainwave entrainment.

Gamma brainwaves, which are the highest frequency brainwave, are held in high regard at the orphanage.

As we wrote in The Orphan Factory, book two in our trilogy: “The children performed mind photography in uncommon brainwaves for regular wakeful consciousness. In this case it was predominantly gamma waves, and it allowed them to tap into the genius of their subconscious minds.”

We explore brainwave entrainment, along with other learning technologies, in some detail in our new release book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ.

Besides being present while learning languages or forming new ideas, Gamma waves are also vital for recalling memories. And the faster the gamma brainwave, the faster the memory recall is – yet another advantage in doing things at speed.

A common goal in most brainwave entrainment technologies or techniques is hemispheric synchronization. This ideal state occurs when the right and left hemispheres of the brain become harmonized or in synch and share similar or identical brainwaves. Studies have shown that when individuals have both hemispheres operating in similar brainwaves like this they are far more likely to learn and digest new information.

Left and Right Hemispheres of the Brain

Einstein puts his own spin on it.

Furthermore, from such studies it is also apparent that most high IQ individuals, and those whom society describes as geniuses, have their brain hemispheres in synch more often than the average person.

In some cases this is a form of conscious self-programming where the genius is fully aware of the ideal brain state he or she needs to be in to perform complex mental feats – and also has the ability to mentally guide him or herself at will into hemispheric synchronization.

In many other cases, however, it is just a fortunate skill they have been born with, and the individual is completely unaware of their good luck in inheriting such a tool. Geniuses who lived before the invention of EEG equipment and the discovery of specific types of brainwaves would likely fit into this category.

Some modern brainwave technologies used to achieve hemispheric synchronization include biofeedback machines, purposefully designed audio recordings (such as binaural beats, monaural beats and isochronic tones), and hypnagogic light and sound machines.

Another impressive technology that has been shown to significantly alter brainwaves and put users in the ideal state for learning is Dr. Patrick Flanagan’s Neurophone.

Invented in 1958 when Flanagan was only 13 years old, the Neurophone is a US-patented electronic nervous system excitation device that transmits sound to the brain through the skin and via the nervous system.

The invention earned the American doctor a profile in a 1962 edition Life magazine while he was still in his teens. Life referred to him as a “unique, mature and inquisitive scientist”. His website mentions Dr. Flanagan “has continued to develop the Neurophone and it is currently being sold as an aid to speed learning.”

Developing a genius mindset essentially comes down to two things: operating at speed and using the subconscious mind more than the conscious. This intuitive or relaxed approach to study is the polar opposite of traditional and mainstream forms of education. 

As we wrote in The Orphan Factory, book two in our thriller series, “The subconscious was always favored over the everyday conscious mind, which was considered too slow to be effective.”

We explore this in depth in our new release book GENIOUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ.

Apart from some artistic subjects like music or dance, learning institutions generally require pupils to concentrate hard at all times. In other words, students have no choice but to always use their conscious minds, thereby suppressing the great reservoir of the subconscious.

When we are forced to think s-l-o-w-l-y like this our brain functions at well below optimum levels. That’s why school students often feel exhausted as studying in this fashion is incredibly draining.

But how can we feel mentally drained when neuroscientists and brain researchers agree we each only use a tiny percentage of our brain?

In our thriller series, our orphan-operatives often go into a daydream state whenever they need answers to life-and-death situations. This is because when you defocus you allow your intuitive self, or your subconscious mind, to deliver the answers you need. It just happens, without reaching for it.

We’ve all experienced pondering a problem all day long only to find we receive the solution when forgetting about the problem and thinking of something else. When we stop concentrating so hard, we allow our subconscious to flourish, and those who do this more than others are sometimes called geniuses.

As head of Chicago’s (fictitious) Pedemont Orphanage, Tommy Kentbridge says to his students in The Orphan Factory, “The subconscious mind is where all higher intelligences exist. Every genius throughout history – Tesla, Einstein, Da Vinci – tapped into the infinite power of their subconscious minds.”

The Orphan Factory (The Orphan Trilogy Book 2)

A factory-line for geniuses.

Studies have shown the subconscious mind can process around 11 million bits of information per second. The conscious mind, however, can only process about 15 to 16 bits of information per second.

Quite a difference!

One of the best ways to bring the subconscious mind into the equation is to outrun the conscious mind by going so fast it literally can’t keep up. So, at Chicago’s Pedemont Orphanage, our orphans do everything at speed. They’re also taught how to learn things indirectly instead of directly. By skirting around the edges of complex subjects, the children never get information overload or lose their way.

As we wrote in The Ninth Orphan, “In the tradition of Leonardo da Vinci and history’s other great polymaths, the children were taught how to fully understand anything by using an advanced mental technique where they would simply life their minds into comprehension.”

To life your mind into comprehension is once again the polar opposite of modern education systems which imply there’s only one way to learn: consciously and with intense concentration.

While this indirect way of learning may sound flaky, it is actually backed up by hard science and is not remotely mystical. This approach is about brainwaves and understanding, or recognizing, the optimal state for learning.

When you hit the right groove, it’s possible to learn quickly and in a satisfying, even enjoyable, fashion.

It is that singularity of mind top sportsmen and martial arts masters achieve. Psychologists sometimes refer to this ultimate mental state as the zone, but it’s really just about having the most effective brainwaves for learning.

A high quality brain scan.

Any time study feels laborious the student is most likely in the beta brainwave, which occurs when the conscious mind is governing. A beta-dominant mind is the perfect recipe for mediocrity and boredom.

The subconscious mind comes into play in other less common brainwaves such as alpha, gamma, theta and delta. These brainwaves have also been shown to be activated when test subjects are laughing, daydreaming, meditating, singing, dancing or spontaneously moving about.

Now how many math or English teachers would tolerate those activities in their classrooms?

What if there really is a much quicker, less methodical way of learning that allows you to learn without learning?

Sounds paradoxical, doesn’t it?
