The “Merchants of Cool” was a documentary about corporate media’s effect on American culture.

The analyzed many aspects of how corporations get kids to buy their product. One of the things they realize is that kids have Guilt Money, money that is given to them by their parents because they think it’s compensating for not spending time with them. The next thing corporations do when figuring out how to advertise to teens is called Cool Hunting, which is basically searching for what’s trendy through focus groups. For example: Sprites Advertising Campaign featured them hosting rap shows and getting their product to seem cool.

My folkway I’m breaking in my research paper will be to not greet people cordially, but in inappropriate ways. My belief is that when I break this folkway, people will do either one of two things: laugh, or greet me with the same level of inappropriateness.

-It uses binaural beats (it's complex, basically two frequencies which cancel each other out as they enter each side of the head, causing a different frequency to be heard in the brain) which stimulate binaural brainwaves, which can cause physical and mental feelings associated with nearly anything, drug or otherwise, when orchestrated in certain orders and volumes

-In order to understand I-Doser, you need to understand the science behind the service it provides. Each track produces its mental effects through the use of binaural beats. For those of you who are not familiar with binaural beats, it is a concept which states that when two different tones are played in opposite ears, a beating sensation is created in the brain. This beating sensation is the effect of the conflicting electrical signals in your brain’s wiring. Needless to say, headphones are a necessity when trying to experience binaural beats because they allow a different frequency to be played in each ear. In experiments over the last century, binaural beats have been shown to create different states of consciousness within an individual. These states of consciousness are the result of different brain waves that can be induced in a person’s psyche through the beats. If you are familiar with psychology, you know that there are four different sets of waves that are produced in our brain: Alpha, Beta, Delta, and Theta. When these brain waves are mixed and matched, I-Doser threorizes that the listener experiences a drug-like high or state of consciousness.The final question is whether these drug tracks are safe. I have put considerable research into this and all the sources keep saying that using binaural beats is, in fact, very safe. Apparently the brain will slowly adjust itself back to reality when the track is done playing.

-A beating tone will be perceived, as if the two tones mixed naturally, out of the brain. The frequency of the tones must be below about 1,000 to 1,500 hertz for the beating to be heard. The difference between the two frequencies must be small (below about 30 Hz)

-This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove
-subject remained something of a scientific curiosity until 134 years later, with the publishing of Gerald Oster's article "Auditory Beats in the Brain"
-Oster saw binaural beats as a powerful tool for cognitive and neurological research, addressing questions such as how animals locate sounds in their three-dimensional environment, and also the remarkable ability of animals to pick out and focus on specific sounds in a sea of noise
-Oster found that a number of his subjects that could not perceive binaural beats suffered from Parkinson's disease
-reported gender differences in the perception of beats. Specifically, women seemed to experience two separate peaks in their ability to perceive binaural beats- peaks possibly correlating with specific points in the menstrual cycle (onset of menstruation and approx. 15 after). This data led Oster to wonder if binaural beats could be used as a tool for measuring relative levels of estrogen
-The effects of binaural beats on consciousness were first examined by physicist Thomas Campbell and electrical engineer Dennis Mennerich, who under the direction of Robert Monroe sought to reproduce a subjective impression of 4Hz oscillation that they associated with out-of-body experience On the strength of their findings, Monroe created the binaural-beat technology self-development industry

-The sensation of binaural beats is believed to originate in the superior olivary nucleus, a part of the brain stem. They appear to be related to the brain's ability to locate the sources of sounds in three dimensions and to track moving sounds, which also involves inferior colliculus (IC) neurons
-some use them for lucid dreaming and even for attempting out-of-body experiences, astral projection, telepathy and psychokinesis
-this can lead to false memories
-An uncontrolled pilot study of Delta binaural beat technology over 60 days has shown positive effect on self-reported psychologic measures, especially anxiety. There was significant decrease in trait anxiety, an increase in quality of life, and a decrease in insulin-like growth factor-1 and dopamine and has been successfully shown to decrease mild anxiety. A randomised, controlled study concluded that binaural beat audio could lessen hospital acute pre-operative anxiety.
