reason why many alpha studies seemed contradictory.
after Max acquired this EEG machine, the healer Jose
P joined Max’s courses. He was surprised to find
that when Jose was connected to it she produced an
output from each of the three bands, alpha, beta and
theta, simultaneously. Moreover, he found, the same
effect was seen whether the machine’s head contacts
were placed over the right or left sides of the
brain This accidental observation in the early 1970s
was the beginning of many years of studying the
relationship of the different brain rhythms, and
also between healers and their patients. Many

healers’ brain rhythms differ from those of other
people? Then Max noted that certain other people did
apparently show a multiplicity of brain rhythms.

Delta + medium ESR
Alpha + medium ESR = hypnagogic state
