Low-MAOA gene on X chromosome (makes less monoamine oxidase-A enzyme which reduces metabolization of serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine) has highest rate of antisocial behavior! The short form MAOA gene, also known as the low-activity-MAOA gene, is considered to be the violence gene, tends to get expressed if there is child abuse or if there is more methylation “off” switches (less “meth” or dopamine) on the gene.

Yellow, orange and red food, which must come from the diet, increase immune function. Whereas, 14% mortality every generation is due to war. Data generated by chance more than 5% of the time is considered unreliable; whereas an error of 1% is the preferred error rate for MEDICAL FINDINGS!

Theta waves occur during unconsciousness, vivid dream sleep, meditation, peak experiences and creative states; Theta = Imagination and start at age 2. Theta waves linked to conscious attempt to inhibit aggressive responses.
Gamma waves occur during active rapid eye movement (REM) sleep are the only rhythm found in all parts of the brain perhaps for simultaneously processing of information from all parts of the brain. Gamma = Peak. High frequency brain wave called gamma signal becomes active at the time of insights in the right temporal lobe.
Delta waves may be used for intuition and are the slowest waves. Alpha and theta are associated with more relaxed and receptive state of mind; more creative persons tend to use low-frequency brain states. Csikszentmihalyi thinks only about 110 bits of information can be processed per second and a flow state happens in a state of complete concentration where all the brain is usually activated often from memorized behaviors that are done subconsciously and implicitly.
A new behavior is best learned in a relaxed or meditative, state when the brain waves are theta rhythm, which results in complex behaviors, such as learning and memory.
