Overview of brain activity day 14:

*Personal note: Very active mind
*Personal note: Very active mind

Overview of brain activity day 17:

*Personal note: Deep meditative state
*Personal note: Deep meditative state

Overview of brain activity day 19:

*Personal notes: Deep meditative state & strong visualisation
*Personal notes: Deep meditative state & strong visualisation

With the first glance the brain activity in the three days seems quite similar.
Delta waves the lower with very active profile (many ups and downs).
Alpha and Beta waves remain quite high.
And Theta always in the middle.

Though, looking a bit closer you can see that the BIG difference is in the Gamma frequencies!

The three experiences, even though they share the same setting, location and time duration they were very different in the subjective experience going from very active mind on day 14 to very deep meditative state and active visualisation on day 19.

And the Gamma frequency represents just that!
