N.O.W. is more like a formless being than a fixed-form product
N.O.W.’s New Origin Waveforms are embedded with conscious stillness and are constantly recombining themselves to create a sound experience that changes from moment-to-moment and session-to-session. N.O.W. is dynamically alive and responsive to its users.
N.O.W. induces a meditative state
N.O.W. produces a complex and ever-changing interplay of low frequency amplitude pulsations. These pulsing, aural neuromodulation signals are similar to those observed in the brainwave patterns of experienced meditators. Through a processes of sympathetic resonance, a N.O.W. listener’s brain begins to quickly create the oscillatory patterns that have been shown to be correlated to an open-monitoring meditative state.
N.O.W. dispels stress and anxiety
Stress and anxiety are caused by thoughts of wanting to be “there” instead of here, or wanting to be “back then” or “in the future” instead of being present now. N.O.W. dispels stress and anxiety by making the present moment a friendly and easy place to be.
N.O.W.’s New Origin Waveforms are somewhat limited in timbral and intervalic variation and thus create a sonic landscape that is familiar each time N.O.W. is used. The sounds are also easy to listen to. Both conditions make it easy for the listener to be comfortable with each present moment N.O.W. is heard –– because it is familiar. But N.O.W.’s ever-changing, moment-to-moment and session-to-session variability makes each N.O.W. Moment different and alluring –– and this helps sustain interest in, and repeated use of, the N.O.W. Tone Therapy System so that the benefits of use can accumulate.
A N.O.W. session is only 3 minute long
N.O.W. teaches remembrance of perfection. The aha! moment, the sudden insight, the recalled Truth, does not take time to recognize. N.O.W. uses only enough “time” for the listener to experience a “declination to stillness” and experience the 3 minute duration as a complete life cycle of: formless stillness, emergence of varying tone-forms, and return to formless stillness.
Because a N.O.W. Tone Therapy Session ends with a moment of stillness, during which the listener transitions from listening to N.O.W. to being aware of the totality of sense perception, a N.O.W. user gradually learns to connect with stillness throughout the day –– and this brings an acceleration of positive life changes.
N.O.W. appears to be two separate objects, in truth it is one unified experience
To the eyes and to the hands, N.O.W. looks and feels like two separate loudspeaker forms. In reality, N.O.W. is an experience of the transcendence of duality, experienced as one, ever-changing, sound moment.
N.O.W. speaks quietly and gently without using words
By design, N.O.W. encourages a “lean in” and “listen up” approach on the part of listener. N.O.W. is easily heard by those who’s consciousness is sufficiently awakened from its slumber of form-identification. But N.O.W. will not be heard, or will be rejected by those who’s consciousness is still locked in form identification.
It is a simple matter of sympathetic resonance –– N.O.W. announces its presence, and this presence is recognized and responded to by those who are open, receptive and tuned into it. This is similar to an analog radio being tuned to the same carrier frequency of the transmitting station in order to hear the programming being broadcast by that station.
N.O.W. transcends the limitation of symbolic, dualistic language
N.O.W.’s essential purpose is to heal the suffering brought on by a mistaken perception of apparent separation. N.O.W. displaces the fear that arises from the egoic-mind’s fixation on its own ephemerality. It offers a palpable experience of the Truth of Love’s universal and eternal existence.
N.O.W. is a gradual revelation
N.O.W. was not “designed” or “invented” in the ways normally seen in product development at a startup. N.O.W. was gradually revealed to Michael Joly (an audio product designer) and Alene Sibley (an intuitive counselor) who worked to hear what N.O.W. wanted to become in form and function. The development of N.O.W. proceeded through many bifurcation points where a beauty path of serendipitous ease and grace was clearly differentiated from angst-ridden false starts and wrong paths. N.O.W. easily continues to find, and reveal itself to those it wants to reach.
