Abstract: There exists a space between the ionosphere and the surface of the earth within which electromagnetic standing waves, generated by lightning strikes, can resonate around the earth; these standing waves are known collectively as the Schumann resonances. In the late 1960s König and Ankermuller already reported striking similarities between these electromagnetic signals and those recorded from the electroencephalograms (EEG) of the human brain; both signals exhibit similar characteristics in terms of frequency and electric and magnetic field intensity. The analyses reported here demonstrate that 1) microscopic (brain) and macroscopic (earth) representations of natural electromagnetic fields are conserved spatially, 2) that electric fields recorded from human brains exhibit strong correlation with the strength of the these parameters and 3) that the human brain periodically synchronizes with signals generated within the earth-ionosphere waveguide at frequencies characteristic of the Schumann resonance for periods of about 300 msec. These findings recapitulate 17th century ideas of harmony amongst the cerebral and planetary spheres and may provide the means necessary to quantitatively investigate concepts of early 20th century psychology
