Well yeah, of course -- I didn't really mean it like that necessarily.

It is valid to infer that since beta waves in the EEG correspondes 
to waking conciousness then whenever other waves are evidenced (in the 
EEG) that *something* has shifted internally.

The entire beta, alpha, theta, delta model of brainwaves is arbitrary 

The imporatant point is that states of consciousness can be shifted 
in precise ways using sound.

Sigh . . . doesn't anybody have something useful to tell me about how 
binaural beats work?
