The Lucia N°03

The Lucid Light Stimulator

Lucia N°03 is a neurostimulator that combines a stroboscope (flickering light), flexible in both speed and intensity, with a constant light, varying in degrees of brightness. Otherwise known as a lucid light stimulator. The computer-controlled interaction of both light sources activates different experiences and sensations in the mind.  This results in intense worlds of colour and shape, a sense of leaving the body, and a fully relaxed and meditative state.

More importantly, each user session is unique, allowing for an impressive individual light experience that will differ every time. Lucia N°03 creates wave patterns in the EEG that would usually only appear after several years of meditation practice.  Since this involves a real neurostimulation, and not an optical post-image phenomenon, each session results in a new experience for the user and their mind. Based on years of research, Lucia N°03 allows for a transcendental experience that is often seen only under extreme conditions - high performance sport, entheogenic substances, or near-death experiences - and consequently triggers the same positive effects.

As a result, the experience value is one of a kind and the effects are noticeably powerful and intense, even after the very first use. It is a safe, controlled method of exercising and stimulating the brain, resulting in enhanced mental health.  Lucid Light Stimulator Lucia N°03 can be used anywhere and is easy to transport.

Tuning fork for the mind

Lucia N°03 naturally achieves without any effort or long-term practice:

• rapid and sustained deep relaxation.
• increased learning capacity and performance.
• a sense of “slowing down.”
• a passage through time and spacelessness.
• awareness detached from the body.
• immersion in worlds of colour and shape and never-before-seen beauty.
• deep emotions and a strong feeling of happiness.
• spiritual experiences.

The development of the Hypnagogic Light Experience

Austrian Clinical psychologist, Dr. Engelbert Winkler and his associate, neurologist Dr. Dirk Proeckl, developed the Lucia Hypnagogic Light Machine. The realization that near-death experiences can improve health, or trigger spontaneous healing, motivated the two doctors to explore the idea of “tapping” into this beneficial potential. In the process, it quickly became clear that even being confronted with these experiences can have a verifiable impact on the human mind.

Fundamental changes in attitude naturally follow. Concerned persons often speak about a return to the essential. Even illness and suffering become illuminated with meaning. The therapeutic effect of the light experience is due to the stabilization of self-worth, since psychological impairment often goes hand in hand with low self-esteem.

Clients were exposed to authentic descriptions of near-death experiences. As a result, therapy processes could be shortened considerably and satisfactory results were achieved even in seemingly hopeless cases (for methodology, therapeutic materials and cases see “The Occidental Book Of Death And Dying” by Dr. Engelbert Winkler). Here, focusing solely on the light experience considerably enhanced the effect, which naturally led to the question of whether it might be possible to further enhance the effect by simulating this experience.

Taking advantage of the fact that key functional areas of the brain do not differentiate between imagination and real occurrences, Dr. Winkler and Dr. Proeckl started working with external sources of light. At the same time, extensive fundamental research was conducted, the results of which can be summarized as follows:

The pineal gland of the brain serves, among others, to perceive brightness through closed eyelids. In death, it secretes Dimethyltryptamine (DMT). DMT is also the central active substance in a South American plant known as “liana of death.” Indigenous healers claim that by consuming the plant they can reach a dimension of light where all healing starts. In the context of comprehensive research, Rick Strassmann (“DMT – The Spirit Molecule,” 2001) proved that a massive release of DMT from the pineal gland is to be regarded as the neurological cause of near-death experiences. DMT is secreted directly into the liquor (brain fluid) and can thus reach the receptors in contact with brain fluid even after a cardiac arrest. After application of the corresponding DMT doses, Strassmann’s test persons repeatedly referred to impressive experiences in a supernatural light which they attributed to healing and insight-inducing properties.

The brain is in a position to activate powers that can heal the body at any stage of illness. This phenomenon is known as spontaneous remission (sudden healing) and the subject of interdisciplinary research projects. Although it is unclear to date how the brain accomplishes this task, the persons concerned often describe sensations of light and warmth which they associate with this.

For a long time, light has played a central role in the treatment of various illnesses. Whether in the treatment of depression, tumours or compulsive disorders, the range of possible applications seems unlimited.

At the climax of spiritual experience we again encounter light phenomena.

Light and consciousness reflect the dual nature of one and the same phenomenon. Light manifests as matter and energy, consciousness as body and mind. And just like light, consciousness stultifies any attempt to lift its secret. Nobody knows the true nature of light or consciousness.

Test series combining different sources of light with hypnosis techniques have yielded astonishing results. Subsequent to their “being in the light.” test persons reported not only the expected enhanced healing effect, but also:

  • Standstill of time

  • Dissolution in the light

  • Contact with the dead

  • Out-of-body experience

  • Mystical experiences

your brain + light

When presented with light, the electrical activity in the brain changes. The pineal gland (glandula pinealis) is stimulated to produce mind-activating hormones that have a significant influence on the circadian rhythm. This small, light organ - deep inside the brain - has always been a matter of speculation within the medical world. Not surprisingly, the gland is often referred to as the “third eye,” due to its ability to influence our sleep/wake patterns.  Interestingly, we can also find this same biological phenomenon in the animal kingdom. The tuatara, a reptile native to New Zealand, also possesses a “third eye”, complete with a lens rudiment and papillary muscles innervated by the sympathetic nervous system. Even in the area of the human pineal gland, tissue cells that we normally find in the eye can be histologically detected.

Although many questions regarding this area are still unanswered by science, we do know that the functional range of the pineal gland serves as a comparison between the organism and the environment. By using neurostimulation lamp Lucia N°03, with our natural sensory channel of vision, the interdependency between the state of consciousness, brain waves and hormone production is enhanced. The resulting recorded brain activity shows in its analysis an image of increasing harmonisation (see figure) which, depending on the characteristics of the light and willingness of the viewer, corresponds to a state of deep relaxation and the highest level of concentration. The activity of the brain is reflected in the eye of the beholder in previously unseen images, and the client learns to be guided by this. This phenomenon of central vision in Hypnagogic Light Experience results in the merging of object and subject.
