. a discrete quantity of energy proportional in magnitude to its effect on right brain hemisphere activation (RHA) through a visual and/or aural stimulus source. This quantitative measurement is usually expressed as a “rate”, i.e., “the viewer was receiving 2000 flowcrons per hour”.
MUSIC IN FLOW
Music That is Usually in Flow
This is a general guideline. Others will be added over time. If you are unsure, assume “in flow” – most music is.
Most Pop/Rock/Folk music is in flow, but hard beats or loudness can detract from concentration.
Genres like Acid Rock or Heavy Metal should be avoided.
Miles Davis up to about 1963. “Sketches of Spain” and “Kind of Blue” are excellent.
John Coltrane up to about 1965
Most other jazz artists up to around the mid-1960’s are typically “in flow”.
Snoop Dogg works well. Others TBD.
Most classical music prior to 1920’s should work well.
Almost all French composers, esp. Eric Satie
Bach and Mozart are probably the safest bet for flow. Most Beethoven pieces that are adagio or andante movements, or prior to 1810 will likely be “in flow”.
Brahms is usually a safe bet.
SPEED OF MUSIC
High/Low Rotation Speed
The viewer will absorb more FlowCrons/minute when watching the Adagio at a lower rotation speed, so the right brain hemisphere will benefit with a higher level of activation.
However, it can be a challenge to maintain concentration on the Adagio at slower speeds. The neophyte in particular may have difficulty in doing so.
If you find your attention is wandering at lower speeds, we recommend going back to faster rotation speeds, at least for awhile. The neophyte in training might want to do so for the first several weeks, or until concentration can be maintained for at least 10 minutes at moderate to higher rates. Then the trainee can begin spending a few minutes per session using slower speeds.
SLOW: <= 64 bpm or <= 1 rpm of the Adagio
FAST: > 64 bpm or > 1 rpm of the Adagio
If you are unsure, use the “fast” setting.
- pertaining to any visual and/or aural media which induces increased activity and functionality in the right brain hemisphere.
- relating to flowcons.
“a flowconic opera”
- a a discrete quantity of energy proportional in magnitude to its effect on right brain hemisphere activation (RHA) through a visual and/or aural stimulus source. This quantitative measurement is usually expressed as a “rate”, i.e., “the viewer was receiving 2000 flowcrons per hour”.
- a scientific disipline that studies the relationship between a flowconic output device (aural/visual) and the resulting psychospheric response from the right brain hemisphere. I.e., the degree to which the right brain hemisphere is “activated” (RHA) by the flowcnic stimulus.
