J Michael Wood tells us that "correct breathing mechanics with lower abdominal breathing (virtually no chest to avoid SNS response) is required to drop the brain wave state into Alpha then Theta and then Delta and finally Gamma with long practice.
Gamma state is equivalent to what the Daoists call WUJI - where everything already exists but is as yet unformed. Gamma state is defined as a brain state where experience, knowledge and wisdom swirl around and form new ideas - the Ah Ha experience.

Without proper body alignment, proper breathing mechanics, and proper mental focus (quieting) it is not possible to get much past a high Alpha state and then only occasionally. When the three elements are properly aligned, the deeper brain states are obtainable and the magic of our reality appears and is made useful through training and intention.  This was the secret of the training of all the mystics in every age and sect."
