The Portacle is a software program that is hard to define.
Below there is a lot of info on the Portacle. But before that I would like to tell you a little about it myself…
You are going to need a headset, preferably one with stereo headphones and a microphone. As you speak of breath into the microphone the Portacle comes to life mapping out the essence of the sound and breath. There are more ways to use the Portacle than I can list here, but let me provide one example..
Say you need to make a decision about something… There are two choices.. like you have 2 job offers and you don’t know which one to pick..
Talk into the Portacle about each and watch the feedback. The more harmonious feedback indicates the right choice for your innerself. You can think of this as a hack to get feedback from your higher self…
NOTE: The Portacle is not difficult to use, however the explanations behind the technology are quite complex. Don’t let that scare you off! You don’t need to understand the mechanics of a gasoline engine in order to drive to the store. The same holds true for the Portacle!
BEST OF ALL it works on PC and MAC! Be sure to specify which version you need. You will receive your download info and unlock codes after your order have been completed. This may take up to 24-48 hours depending on when you order. During business hours we will make every effort to deliver the info to you as soon as possible.
Having used The Portacle for several days now I find it a fascinating tool and an excellent adjunct to Law of Attraction and manifestation exercises as well as a hack tool to get information from the subconscious (or higher self – what ever you prefer!)
The Portacle, A Tool for Personal Growth That Points You in the Right Direction… To Find Yourself
WHAT IS THE PORTACLE?
The Portacle is a next generation, natural resonance biofeedback system that measures and analyzes the harmonic content of human breath and voice and feeds it back via a process called “binaural phasing” where the brain is required to reassemble and resolve the difference between the player and instrument of one’s reality. It is a real time measurement and feedback system that allows a person to see, hear and feel who they are at the most basic, primal and fundamental level of reality, beyond the quantum veil, in the spectral domain from which all reality originates and evolves. The binaural phasing of real and imaginary are returned visually, aurally, and kinesthetically via multisensory feedback on a person’s own computer. Resolving the difference between the real and imaginary components of one’s own personality can result in a quantum leap to the next highest level of order…and ultimately transformation from an evolutionary material creature to an existential spiritual essence…a process called Allasso by the ancient Greeks.
In order to use the Portacle you will need only a computer with the minimum requirements (see below). However, the system works better with a headset rather than built in microphone and speakers. The ultimate set up would include a professional broadcast headset and an external sound card like an M-Audio or Scarlett Interface. In addition, a vibrotactile chair or table can be optionally added to further enhance the experience such that it is felt in every cell of the body.
The Portacle has many applications. It can be used as a stand-alone system all by itself, or as an adjunct to any other process or procedure. Its many applications include, but are not limited to:
o Innertainment – a method of recreation and enjoyment that teaches the art of seeking constructive healthy pleasure instead of those which are destructive.
o Meditation – the greatest form of meditation ever developed because it teaches how to achieve deep levels of meditation with open eyes. Normally, it is difficult for many people to achieve any high level of relaxing alpha brain wave activity with their eyes open. However, that is when we need that ability the most, in normal day-to-day life.
It has applications in Yoga, TM, Zen, Mantras, Toning, Contemplation and Worship. In addition, it allows sensory resonance via its multi-sensory forms of feedback. For more information about sensory resonance, please see the Portacle User’s Manual.
o Stress Release and Management.
o Rehabilitation and Habit Refocusing.
o Personal Development – Self-Awareness, Exploration, Realization and Mastery.
o Transformation – Mood, Career, Finances, Relationship and Home.
o Sports – Centering, Grounding, Inspiring, Focus and Perseverance.
o Vocal Training – Accuracy and Precision of Voice.
o Manifestation of Intention – Obtaining, Achieving, Changing or Becoming.
o Allasso – Transcending Human…Beyond Mortal… Transformation from an Evolutionary Physical Creature to an Existential Spiritual Essence.
Breathe or speak into The Portacle™ software and reflected back are insights into your true current state of being, displayed by showing you a variety of images and sounds that you can analyze to understand where you are in the grand scheme, in the great NOW. The Portacle™ is the first of its kind. Science and technology merge with Spirit to raise our consciousness – individually and collectively. We believe that the most important human development is the realization that we are in control of our own evolution.
The Portacle™ was created for the purpose of demonstrating and teaching an individual or group to become more aware of their thoughts and feelings through their own breath. A culmination of thirty years of research and experiential data has brought to light a cutting edge biometric feedback system that is now accessible to the public. This exciting and exclusive downloadable computer program provides people from all walks of life a powerful tool for self-awareness and transformation at the deepest level.
The goal of The Portacle™ is to empower and create true and lasting change individually and collectively.
By combining technology and consciousness, keeping the integration of body, mind and spirit at the pinnacle of their interest, the mission of the team at the Portacle™ is to support whole brain and whole body synchrony. It is their grand vision to give the end-users the ultimate tool for personal transformation and growth, thus assisting in the conscious evolution of humanity.
For every visible form there is an invisible counterpart separated by an unseen veil. This is a principle called the law of reciprocals, which states that anything not fully unified within has a hidden, entangled complement on the other side that integrates it into ONE whole thing. Whereas we have a time domain actual self that lives in direct space, we also have a spectral domain potential self that exists in reciprocal space.
These two different aspects of ourselves represent the smallest, most indivisible components of our body, mind and spirit. Collectively, they are called automata and are known in science as the real and imaginary components of complex waveforms. The video above illustrates how all geometries and wave shapes originate from combinations of these two components. However, in more realistic terms, they represent the parts that separate the player from the instrument in which we live…the operator from the machine. The real partials originate from the intentions of the player, whereas the imaginary parts stem from the interaction between the player and instrument.
BEYOND THE QUANTUM
In the spectral domain these two aspects of reality are separate and discreet possible combinations of unassembled real and imaginary components. On this side, in the time domain, these two aspects are combined and assembled by intention into the vibrations that make up the matter, events and circumstances of our world. In each of life’s situations; health, relationships, finances, living quarters, careers and dreams, these two polar features come together to manifest our intentions. But, before they become manifest, they lie undetected on the other side. Intention has the ability to reach across the divide, combine these real and imaginary components and express them into material reality.
In order to effect true and lasting change, three things are required:
A level of reality that the effect can be applied in.
Current status of the object or person seeking change.
A method of applying the change.
Modern medicine attempts to effect change at the molecular level mostly through prescription pharmaceuticals. However, it is now known that these molecules are made from atoms that consist of primary particles that are actually just tiny vibrating strings. But what is the source of the strings? Our research has shown these to be vibrations or complex waveforms made from real and imaginary components. In our time domain all challenges have physical, mental/emotional and spiritual aspects, all of which must be addressed in order to be resolved. However, in the spectral domain all things are homogenous. It is therefore much more elegant and efficient to apply change at this more primal level of the automata.
The mechanism the universe gives us to express our intention is voice and breath. Modern scientists are just now beginning to understand what yogis and mystics have known for centuries–that the life force animating our physical bodies is regulated by breath, and that the breath energy is connected to mind. Breath is the origin and destiny of the life wave that constantly courses though our body, mind and spirit. It is the soul of our being. Therefore, a spectral analysis of the breath is the preferred metric of choice to determine the current status of an individual. Thinking about something is purely imaginary, but when the thought is expressed, it sets everything in motion and writes the intention into the time record of manifestation. The ability of an intention to manifest itself is directly proportional to the quality of its expression. Human biometrics is focused only on physical changes. Our psiometric evaluation is more complete because it includes the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects as well as the physical components of change.
The best of the transformative technologies include a method of feedback to the one seeking transformation. This feedback is usually in the form of a signal to either warn or inform the seeker that a particular goal has been achieved or blockage has been encountered. In addition, the feedback signal is usually a simple tone or light that signals the user. Furthermore, the data used to generate the feedback is static and must be collected and averaged over time. The Portacle™ provides a true natural form of dynamic feedback that iterates the harmonics requiring reinforcement back to the user via a multi-sensory system that allows them to see and hear what their intention looks like in the quantum world in real time. This synchronous experience is profoundly relaxing, yet extremely inspiring and results in a state of sensory resonance that can lead to higher states of order.
The Portacle™ is an aperture or lens through the divide that separates the two domains. The user breathes, whispers or speaks into the microphone of their computer, which analyzes and provides the feedback in real time. The following diagram illustrates the Portacle™ process.
There are seven stages of The Portacle™ process:
1. You breathe, whisper or speak or otherwise express your goals, ambitions, and intentions into a microphone connected to your computer.
2. The ambient noise of the room and dis-coherence of their current state are removed leaving only the partials that are related harmonically.
3. This optimized signature is then separated into real and imaginary components, and auditory and visual signals are generated and fed back in real time.
4. The real components are sent to the left ear while the imaginary components are routed to the right ear. Since the ears are separated, your brain is required to resolve the difference and hears it as binaural phase. An additional aural rendering emphasizes those harmonics that require the most reinforcement in order to optimize the signature, and this feedback signal is then combined with the first.
5. In addition to this aural feedback, you are stimulated visually with a model that plots the real and imaginary relationships of your intention onto the surface of a twelve dimensional toroidal space, the only topology on which to populate a truly complex dynamical system. This torus is then unfolded to reveal a map that we refer to as a spectral essence, an amazingly detailed mandala that is viewed on your computer screen. This quantum view of intention is powerfully engaging and can lead to an enhanced ability to visualize your own reality. It can be used as an “intentional palette” upon which to visualize your thoughts and intentions.
6. As an option, The Portacle™ can also provide kinesthetic or vibrotactile feedback as well to a hand held transducer, sound table or chair.
7. Continued appropriate use of The Portacle™ can lead to changes in both the internal and external environments. The changes wrought about within and around yourself are the final stage of The Portacle™ process.
While the outer space of direct space is referred to as the universe, the inner world of reciprocal space is a place called the inuverse. All good things in life come from this innerspace. Every invention was first an idea inside someone’s mind. Children come from inside, and it can be demonstrated that the future itself originates in and radiates out from this “other side” of reality. At the center of this inuverse lies the origin of one’s personality. Here is found the essence of both the operator and the machine…the player and the instrument. All human suffering, indeed, all human experience stems from the difference between these two parts of oneself.
This variance creates a tension, which functions as a black hole, drawing in anything that is resonant with resolving the difference and strain. Therefore, we are all black holes wandering around in space drawing in what we need to resolve these issues in order to become our one true self. We are not objects walking around in space, but rather space wandering around in space. Origin lies at the center of all things. Origin and destiny are the alpha and omega of one’s life, and in most aspects…the same thing.
At the center of this inuverse lies the control room of a person’s machine or instrument. Within are the buttons, levers, and knobs that set up the next upcoming moment, in other words the super-conscious future. This seat of consciousness is sandwiched in-between the super and subconscious (future and past), and operates in the now. It is the living presence of the conscious mind…the operator or controller of the machine. When there is no sentient change in the present moment to reset the controls, the next moment will be more or less a repeat of the last one. Only when acted on in the present, can true and lasting change be achieved.
Navigating to this obscure and far away point of origin isn’t easy. It requires a lot of determination, time and courage. It requires active pursuit (your part) the right tools (vehicle, map, directions, fuel, plan etc.) and dedicated support from someone who is willing to listen. The Portacle™ is a technology that can provide all three of these prerequisites by encouraging active pursuit through stimulating, engaging and mesmerizing feedback, providing the vehicle, map and directions to your next highest level, and offering guidance via indices and quotients that constantly give a reading on a person’s current state of being in real time.
Having access to the controls that set up one’s future gives them the option of manifesting their own reality. The most important set of coordinates describing where a person is currently at in their life is distance and direction from origin. The Portacle™ is a compass/odometer that can help you determine those parameters and assist you in getting on a path to origin/destiny that is both elegant and efficient. We believe it to be one of the greatest tools for meditation, personal development and transformation ever developed. It is the essence of what is being called “spiritual technology”.
The Portacle™ can bring about whole-brain synchrony via binaural phasing. The different possible combinations of real and imaginary can be used to determine the real time status of awareness (in or out), energetics (work or rest) integration (connected or separate) and orientation (past, present, future) and other indices and quotients that relate to your current state of being.
Automata are very mechanical as they represent the machine-like aspects of reality. Therefore, they are sensitive to time, periodicity and intensity. The more often you can experience them, the more periodic and ceremonial you can get with it, and the more intense you can make the experience, the more effective the process will be. Persons entering the Portacle™ are called Neuronauts who neuro-navigate through the Portacle™. Showing up, being willing to experience whatever comes but not attached to outcome is the best attitude and state of mind with which neuronauts can enter the Portacle™.
The Portacle™ is calling you to your next highest level of order, the not yet manifested parts of you that lie beyond the quantum await your command!
Modern scientists are just now beginning to understand what sages and wise men have been claiming since ancient times–that the life force animating our physical bodies is regulated by breath, and that the breath energy is controlled by the mind. We were breathed into existence.
Breath is the first action taken as an independent living being. In the beginning was one’s word. Voice is the mechanism we were given by Origin to say who we are and what we want, and breath constitutes the major part of the voice.
Science has established a direct link between the practice of conscious breathing and the electrochemical balance of the brain and nervous system. Breathing attunes us with the solar and lunar forces that lead to better health. The sensory network of the nose is also vital to the reticular activating system’s alerting mechanism.
Breath is the measure of life. Mice breathe very fast and live short lives. Tortoises and sloths move and breathe slow and therefore live much longer lives. Breath is unconscious. It happens automatically through the involuntary muscle system. This ties it directly into the automata at the most primal level of reality. It has somewhat of a life of its own.
Yogis and body workers place a lot of emphasis on learning how to deepen and lengthen the breath. They understand that it is the key to greater health and vitality. Becoming more conscious of the breath and its patterns are the first step in this process.
PRANA (Sanskrit) – ” Life-force” is a yogic term for vitality and breath. It is the name of the upward moving breath, which causes the spirit to evolve. It is the fundamental cycle that drives metabolism, and voice is an extension of the breath. Breath reveals the way in which we take-in life and express ourselves back out into the environment, and voice is the mechanism we have evolved to communicate who we are and what we want out of life. Whereas brainwaves reveal mostly what a person is thinking, and heartbeats mostly what a person is feeling…the breath and voice patterns weave both together in real time. The way one breathes reveals everything about their life. Therefore, breath and voice (aspiration) is the biometric of choice for evaluating the physical, mental, and spiritual essence of a human being.
Whereas most biofeedback measures electrical signals, aspiration analysis provides the ultimate feedback source of vibrations that do not have to be arbitrarily converted from electrical signals like brainwaves and heartbeats. A spectral evaluation of breath can reveal the past, present and future distribution of physical, mental/emotional and spiritual energies and provide a plan for disassembly, rearrangement and reassembly of oneself to the next highest level of order.
The current state of human biometric measurement gives regard only to the physical aspects of an individual. However, this does not address three other key facets that describe the current state and full nature of a human being in totality, those being the mental, emotional and spiritual components.
The science that forms the basis of The Portacle ™ measures not only how a person is feeling, but also how they are thinking. It actually analyzes the unique characteristics of human breath in order to measure the intention behind the energy, optimizes it and then iterates it back through a unique form of multi-sensory biofeedback.
When one knows and sees what is going on inside of themselves as expressed through their breath, they can have profound realizations and make changes in their lives to manifest their intentions, stated and unstated.
Through a cycle that follows a specific flow from thought to expression to action to manifestation (see image below), a process we call the Manifestation Cycle, we can see how thought is the genesis of Intention!
Thought is the first step in manifesting an intention. To manifest one’s intention, real and imaginary automata (the smallest, most indivisible components of the self-operating machine) must be collected, organized and ordered into a focused concentration of intentional energy. The Portacle™ offers users the opportunity to meditate and focus thought.
Expression is the second step of intentional manifestation. It is the ordering of the automata via expression of the original thought. The quality of such expression determines the probabilities of its manifestation. The Portacle™ provides a mathematical, formal type of expression that is vastly superior to informal languages like English.
Action: Proper action taken on a quality expression results in manifestation. Once a choice has been made, higher-order encephalic automata take their action through the function of microtubules in the brain and begin to spread out both internally and externally.
Manifestation: Once proper action is applied, nurturing is all that remains. Once a person understands how things manifest, and what part their own consciousness plays in the process, they can begin to change both their inner and outer environments.
Intention is the instruction we give to the un-manifest to manifest.
Intention, the dictionary says, “is an aim that guides an action.” Imagine for a moment that your intention (thought) is an arrow and your goal is to hit the target creating a bullseye. As much as we want to hit the target and have our ideas become real, we don’t always achieve our desire. What is it that prevents us from hitting that bullseye? All the dis-harmonic beliefs, behaviors and emotions that are at play in any given moment.
Our job is to become cognizant of these patterns. However, the mind is very crafty, very insidious, and will fight for its survival for what has been conditioned within us. Whether it’s true or false…good or bad.
The Portacle™ provides a mirror into what is unresolved, collapsing the boundaries between our present reality and our potential. The result of which is a profound and sustainable internal cohesion . . . our truth.
How do we know when we’ve heard or experienced the truth? There is a quality of alignment, peace and ease that resonates throughout every cell of our being. It’s as if we’ve always known it. The Portacle™ has the ability to guide us toward this state of grace.

• It’s an advanced tool for personal development as it will allow anyone to practice and learn the art of creating their own reality. Being able to measure dominant outward radiation, it can be a marker for when the energy field is being radiated or absorbed. It also provides a means of redistribution and balance of the three main energy systems physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual. When used enough it can become a tool for Allasso, transformation from an evolutionary material creature into an existential spiritual essence. For more information see the User Manual that comes with the download.
• It encourages eyes open meditation, an important life-coping tool that allows one to bring the results and benefits of meditation into use during everyday life.
• It pioneers a new healing paradigm that identifies and enhances what’s right rather than finding and fixing what’s wrong.
• It provides a new form of entertainment called InnerTainment™, which focus attention inward for an experience that many users declare equal or better than the best altered states of mind they have ever experienced. This includes various forms of stress management, relaxation, meditation, yoga, stress management, hypnosis, psychoanalysis, sound/music therapy, neuro-feedback, and even drug induced altered states of mind. The Portacle™ should never be used to replace such forms of therapy, but is the ultimate adjunct for any of them.
• It can address the worse disease of mankind – anhedonism…the inability to experience pleasure. More commonly known as the “pleasure freeze” it is a state of mind that turns off the immune system for lack of purpose and desire to live. The Portacle™ is extremely entertaining and fun. It encourages healthy pleasure and active pursuit of transformation by providing all three requirements for transformation.
o Active Pursuit through interesting and engaging auditory, visual and optional tactile feedback.
o The Right Tools by providing the map, directions, vehicle, fuel and plan for the journey.
o Dedicated Support – the natural resonance feedback and accumulator allow the user to become their own therapist and dedicated support.

• The Portacle can be used to meditate, recreate, educate, learn, grow, change, inspire or ground your self. In addition, it can be a mind-ship that can blast you off to your next highest level of order. It can enhance any of these experiences if used properly with focus and intention.
• Utilizing the Portacle at least 15 to 20 minutes or longer per day is recommended. Many utilize if for hours, or run it in the background as they are moving about in their homes and offices.
• The real and imaginary automata are the smallest, most indivisible components of the machine and are very machine-like in character and behavior. Therefore, the more periodic and formal you can make your use of the Portacle™, the more you will receive from it. It’s all about active pursuit on your part. More time dedicated, the more often, the more scheduled and ordered you can make your transformation time the better.
• Focusing on who you are when everything is right and you have everything you want is more important that intent to obtain, achieve or change something about yourself. Describing who you are as an optimal person is the most powerful intentions you can utilize with the Portacle™. You may breath your essence, whisper internal changes, speak external changes and/or tone your favorite mantras or sounds (Om).
• For specific detailed instructions please consult the Portacle Users Manual.
• Time domain (this side) view of intention
• Mathematical model of bridged state between the time and spectral domains.
• Cartesian graph of real & imaginary relationship
Each pixel in the portacle image represents one of the frequencies in the users breath or voice. Its color is the phase in relation to origin and the brightness indicates the volume or amplitude of that frequency. The placement of each pixel is determined by its real and imaginary coefficients.
Whereas the portacle image has a lot of entertainment and inspirational value, its use as a tool for change is limited to the fact that it is merely the current view of affairs. The Matrix images are more representative of the optimize state that the portacle can become in the spectral domain. In other words, the matrices are more indicative of a person’s quantum, spiritual essence. However, you are encouraged to occasionally watch these amazingly beautiful and totally dynamic images of yourself for stimulation, recreation and inspiration. It’s perfect to dance or move to as it closely follows the music or sound passing through.
• The portacle image is created by plotting the real and imaginary partials on an X/Y Cartesian graph where the horizontal plane represent the real partials and the vertical plane is the imaginary partials.
• Each pixel represents one of the frequencies in a person’s breath or voice. Its position on the image results from its real and imaginary coefficients, the color is its phase (or relationship of peak and valley to those of origin) and the brightness is its volume or amplitude.
• Running accumulation of the portacle – allows a concept to be gathered over time and improves the precision of the indices that measure a person’s state of being…awareness, energetics, integration and orientation (the indices are an upgrade available with the human neurocomputer option).
• The portacle image is a dynamic flow in real time of a person’s intention. The human breath and voice are so dynamic that they constantly and rapidly change from moment to moment. Without the accumulator, the images would change so fast that they are hard to observe. The accumulator holds onto each cycle of the portacle for a short period of time in order for one to observe their current state over a period of time. This is especially important when making the matrices from the portacle, as complex thought would be hard to observe. This allows the user to think, breath and/or talk about a particular subject over a period of time and then observe and listen to the entire accumulation.
Whereas we encourage users to try every possibility with the software, there would not be any currently known reason to watch the Accumulator, unless perhaps one wanted to take a look at a sequence of statements being held onto by the accumulator to see what they might have to reveal about the current actual state of what is being talked about.
Represent user’s spectral essence. What their intention looks and sounds like in the spectral domain of reciprocal space.
• Spectral domain (other side-beyond the quantum) view of intention.
• Mathematical model of the optimized, potential state of being.
• Dynamic reflection of the internal quantum state and outer manner of being and doing.
• Model of the quantum lattice of the complex waveform of breath or voice.
• State space of the of the real and imaginary automata.
• Mathematical model of intention – the smallest, most indivisible components of intention drawn into direct space.
• Color palette upon which to paint or draw intention.
• The matrices are created by shining a pure white light through the portacle accumulator to create a diffraction image which is populated onto the surface of a 12D torus then unfolded into a 2D image that can be seen on a computer screen. For more information please visit the science page at http://www.theportacle.com/about/science.
• The Real Matrices represent all of the cosine partials that originate from the player or operator of one’s reality.
• The Imaginary Matrices represent all of the sinewave partials that originate from the interaction between the player/operator and the inherent properties of the instrument or body.
• The Complex Matrices are the combination of the real and imaginary matrices. In other words, an overlay is made between the two images and they are blended into one.
• Choosing the appropriate matrix to observe is as much of an art and intuition as it is a science. You are encouraged to choose by scanning through and intuitively choosing one that fits the moment. There is also more of a science that allows one to determine the sequence of the three possible choices (real, imaginary or complex) by a personality profiling system based upon how one approaches change in their life. There are seven modes. For more information please see the Portacle User’s Manual.
• All geometries originate from combinations of real and imaginary components. Human breath and voice are nothing more that combinations of real and imaginary components. Therefore, as you speak and breath you are drawing images on the screen in three dimensions inside of the twelve dimensional torus. Anything is possible. Learning how to control these images, or more specifically, learning how to see what one wants to see in the images, is the ultimate expression and use of the Portacle.
• Specific geometries like points, lines, circles and other shapes do have specific meaning. In addition, colors have emotional significance. Many systems exist that show these correspondences. For more information, please see the Portacle User’s Manual.
The matrices are the prime visual one should watch while using the portacle. Spending at least 15-20 minutes per day or more is suggested.
There are two different types of aural renderings:
• Optimized Resonance™ Biofeedback – The first is a feedback of the actual voice of what is being breathed or voiced. The signal is taken and the noise removed, leaving only the harmonic partials, which are separated at fed back to opposite ears. The real partials are routed to the left ear and the imaginary ones are sent to the right ear. The user is required to reassemble via resolution by whole-brain synchrony. The brain has to make up the difference between the two signals and it is “heard” as a binaural phase. This is similar to binaural beat, but with phase instead of frequency. It is not entrainment, but rather resolution.
• Sonic Reinforcement™ Biofeedback – The harmonic partials are analyzed for magnitude and those that are in the most need of support are fed back to separate ears. As above, the real is routed to the left ear/right brain while the imaginary is directed to the right ear/left brain.
o The Temporal/Spectral dial allows choice of mix between these two modes of feedback. This knob turns up and down by clicking on it and dragging the mouse either up or down. All the way down (left) emphasizes the spectral sonic reinforcement. Turning the knob up (right) brings in the temporal (voiced) feedback until the voice is more emphasized on the right extreme.
o What is the difference between the Aspiration and Intention modes of the Sonic Reinforcement mode of aural-feedback?
• The Aspiration Mode – This mode was designed for breathing and begins to slowly build up a set of harmonics from the breath that over time, can represent those harmonics that need most support and feeds that back real & imaginary to left and right ears.
• The Intention Mode – This modes begins immediately and feeds back what the person has just said, harmonized and optimized and separated into real and imaginary to left and right ears, requiring resolution via binaural phasing and subsequent resolution.
o Why does the Intention Mode sound like echo?
• The Intention mode feeds back, over and over again until the Accumulator eventually lets it go. If you stop speaking the echo will continue until it fades away. If you continue to speak, the sounds become mixed and combined with the sonic reinforcement feedback and the echo effect diminishes into the mix.
