HEART TUNER PRO-04-HS-BETA
preliminary user instructions for beta testing
date June 19, 2006
This new Heart Tuner release features a Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Module
(Channel A) as well as a Statistics Module (Channel A, ICC).
preliminary instructions below cover the HRV Module, for the Stats Module
please see here.
The Heart Rate Variabilty Module includes:
included in the existing History Module (select with "view channel"
tab), showing beat-interval format
Spectrum - colour coded for traditional VLF-MF-HF ranges
Histogram, pie-chart type with matching colours showing the relative
power optionally of all ranges, resp. excl. the VLF range which is physiologically
HRV Spectrum Windowing, resp. 64-128-256 seconds (= samples) - use small
window for faster feedback, long window for higher resolution
Auto Windowing Mode - this will automatically step-up the window size
at the moment the window is lapsed, i.e. the complete data is available;
optionally the HRV Spectrum can be shown from the start (not recommended)
Filters available (Nono - Hann - Hamming) for HRV Spectrum
options and settings in new HRV tab in Advanced Settings Menu
/ REPLAY functions for HRV are available and automatically included
to BETA download page - download upgrade to replace current version

Tuner's new HRV
The new Heart Tuner may dramatically prove that high Internal
Coherence or ICC (Awareness Focus, Empathy) and high Heart Rate Variability
(Life Force, Vitality) cˇn exist together - thus finally dismissing
Heart Math's claim that ICC is "entraining low HRV" - it is definitively
A universal formula for optimizing HRV, and generally biological sustainability
was already found by Prof. Ary Goldberger to be a fractal. Whereas traditionally
merely "high" HRV was found to be a predictor of (cardiac) health
and longevity, Goldberger claims that actually the HRV should be fractal.
Now we have found that ONLY a fractal HRV (maximum vitality) enables high
Internal Coherence (miximum self-awareness) at the same time.
Both together may form an alltogether new paradigm of cardiac health, and
general psycho-physiological well-being, and therefore a clue to optimal
diagnosis and biofeedback training.
rather technical prove of how fractal HRV allows optimised ICC (and vice
versa) can be visualized with the Cardiac Synthesizer, which can be downloaded
the Cardiac Synthesizer is only intended as an learning and teaching tool,
the ECG data generated can conveniently be exported and then imported
and played by the Heart Tuner as if it were a normal recording. Screenshots

diagram of HRV and ICC in the human psycho-physiology. HRV emerges
as a controlling nucleous , resp. source of life force (vitality);
ICC is the principle of pure self awareness or indiviudation, usually
resulting in psychic energy, that is, emotions.
more advanced diagram shows the precize interactions between HRV
and ICC, that is practically between vitality and emotions. We call
this a subtle, or subjective control. This means that coherent emotion
(the result of self-awareness or individuation) can facilitate more
life force, whereas at the same time coherent action (the result
of life force) can invite more self-awareness.
diagrams visualize in a way an "imperfect", but hence all the
more realistic picture of the complex equilibrium of life force and emotion
(in a slightly different context also called "homestasis" or
better, "homeodynamics"). That is, in the normal human condition,
each and every action (and perception) as well as each and every emotion,
will have a certain repercussion on the allover equilibrium. So they always
introduce a (temporary) fluctuation and state of less coherence, a diversion
of the (theoretical) ideal condition. Only this reduction of coherence
causes an energy flow which enables us to act and feel.
Now, the new and emerging paradigm of optimized equilibrium is what is
called "Harmonic Inclusiveness". This means maximum coherent
action and emotion, that is, involvement with maximum vitality and self-awareness.
Measured in the heart, this means maximum HRV PLUS maximum ICC at the
same time. As we will see, and already theoretically demonstrated with
the Cardiac Synthesizer, Harmonic Inclusiveness is gained by increasing
the fractality of the heart rate, which is ultimately the result of an
It is the goal and purpose of the new Heart Tuner, together with the Cardiac
Synthesizer, to serve as an education, diagnosis and training tool for
Harmonic Inclusiveness in all spheres of life.
This is the first beta release of the HRV Module, as well as the Cardiac
Synthesizer. In due time we hope to build up supportive real life data.
