Here at the 那刹 Ksana Institute we have recently achieved a scientific breakthrough in acoustic human levitation.

Acoustic levitation is a phenomenon that uses standing waves to counteract the force of gravity enabling an object float in mid-air.

Through our intensive training programme, Class 1 AudioBod WanDan has managed to achieve successive periods of acoustic levitation. This is accomplished by creating vocal discarge to produce standing waves. Once the standing waves produced match the subjects own frequency, nodes of reinforcment create lift.

As demonstrated in Fig.1.1 the resuling standing waves create a node of constant pressure, these nodes create an acoustic field around the subject facilitating levitation. These effects are not dissimilar from the weightless effect experienced by astronauts.
By changing the frequency and amplitude of the standing wave the subject is able to move this acoustic field along x,y,z axis. Fig 2.1 and 2.2 illustrates the minimum and maximum node heights the subject achives in this test through his percusive frequency changes.

This is the first in a series of experiments that we are conducting, exploring the sonic capabilities of our recently discovered test subject WANDAN.

Founded in 2011, the Ksana Institute is a non profit organisation that was established to pursue research into the sonic capabilities of human beings.

With a diverse team of scientists and Tibetian lamas we pursue modern, traditional and ancient sonic knowledge to bridge the gap in our scientific understanding. Located on Kanton Island situated at 2°50′S, 171°40′W our military specification facility is as close to the equator as possible to take advantage of the weaker force in the earths magnetic field.

Currently rated as a class 1 AudioBod, WANDAN was discovered in the UK by the Ksana Institute in 2009. We quickly took him in as one of our test subjects as it was obvious through his vocal bass projection that he was a prime candiate for the institutes resarch programme. Know for his vocal bass projection he was diagnosed with acute percussive tourettes in 2002 and is currently undergoing treatment with Nathan Flutebox Lee & the Clinic
