** NEW INSIGHT INTO THE SCHUMANN RESONANCE FREQUENCIES** - Part 2 (c)2021 by Rick Andersen

In part 1 of this article, I called attention to the fact that the nominal spectrum of the Schumann resonances, seems to be identical to the *upper sideband* mixer product, in radio terms, of the two frequencies **1.3 Hz** and its 5th harmonic, **6.5 Hz**, and its harmonic series. How this phenomenon occurs, I don't claim to know, but I observe the startling coincidence and report it anyway. I will spin some speculative tales, based on that observation, also, in this paper. Food for thought...

So where did I come up with the frequency **1.3 Hz**? It's the difference between the observed Schumann fundamental frequency of 7.8 Hz and the interval between it and its **overtones**, or **modes** [6.5 Hz].

Could there be any biological signifance for the frequency **1.3 Hz**, or **1.3 cycles per second** of vibration rate? Well, if we look at it as how many cycles occur per *minute*, we get that by multiplying by 60 seconds/minute:

** 1.3 cycles per second x 60 seconds per minute = 78 cycles per minute.**

Just a few cycles faster than 72 cycles...or *beats* per minute...*72 BPM is the nominal heartbeat of an adult human being!*

The **beat frequency** between 7.8 Hz and 6.5 Hz = 1.3 Hz or **78 BPM**.

I don't know about you, but my heart rate has been much higher than 78 BPM at times!
**Maybe there's a particular heart rate that, when stabilized via a meditative state, resonates [in its 6th harmonic] with the fundamental Schumann frequency of 7.80 Hz, +/-.5 Hz???**

[resonance implies sync locking/entrainment, and maximum power t ransfer between two or more systems.]

[more to come...]
