The answers to our questions are already within us

To Plato - the ancient Greek philosopher - learning is a paradox: a person can neither learn what he already knows, nor inquire about what is outside the scope of his knowledge. But what if knowledge was already in our soul from before birth? Socrates suggests that the soul could be immortal, and repeatedly incarnated. What one perceives to be learning, then, could be actually the recovery of that latent knowledge acquired from eternity, but lost in the trauma of birth. This process, Socrates refers to as Anamnesis.

  This goes hand-in-hand with the Gregorian Choir. Try it out!

  Amazing!

  Anamnesis sounds SO MUCH like a soundtrack from a 90s puzzle/adventure game. This is exactly what I needed today and I didn't even know it until I clicked. Thank you so much for this brilliant soundscape!

  This is simply perfect. I feel like this sound is the one I've been looking for ever since I started using MyNoise.net. I use it when I read, when I study, when I give a massage, when I'm on the train, when I meditate. Simply put: I have it on so often that silence feels awkward.

  This is a beautiful piece from an extremely creative software. Listening to Anamnesis, I can imagine myself floating inside a near-empty space, only filled with light, flowing whiteness and more importantly, all the knowledge in the world. The feeling is very dreamlike, which is too bad because I'd really like to grasp all that knowledge.

  The one I was looking for. This is amazing.

  Mystical sound. Eases tension and promotes creativity.

  Life is a gift from time, nature is a gift from life, myNoise is a gift from nature, Anamnesis is a gift from Mynoise... =}

  I've got Anamnesis and Northern Lights going now, in a loud coffee bar. These generators are why I'm still halfway sane in a noisy and inconsiderate world. A world that doesn't ever shut up or respect another's right to sit and quietly think or write. Or just sit. QUIETLY. These sounds soothe, mask, and save me from complete over-the-top stress. Thanking you isn't enough, so I keep donating.

  I've been listening to this on Animate for 9 hours now. It helps me calm myself.

  Put everything on full blast and close your eyes.

  This is so relaxing; I listen to this for hours, and it really clears my mind. I love how airy and distant this sounds, very contemplative.

  I put the Low hum and Infra hum to the max, everything else to zero, except a little pad for flavor. Yummy!

  This is so calming to me. It reminds me of a robotic heaven type of place. It's calming, and not too harsh on the ears!

  So great with Osmosis and these settings. Just a fantastic site over all. A true godsend for sleeping trouble and as a noise blocker Thank You Dr. Pigeon!

  Aaaah... floating in a warm stream to the next level.

  I dont understand why this is marked as "eerie"; it's really soothing IMO. Especially in combination with the Evil Charm generator. [Editor] Not really eerie indeed, but many users asked me to put a warning, since this generator can be very powerful in remembering traumas, for exemple.

  I don't see why this is marked as eerie to be honest, my current sliders just make me feel like I'm drifting through a blue sky filled with fluffy white clouds.

  Lovely creepy stuff. Used it for writing some dark dystopian horror. Always come to this website when I have a story due for a deadline!

  This makes me think of the entrance to a world made of dreams... Wow!

  I'm a classicist and immediately went to this one, it really helps me to focus when I'm studying and the eeriness of the voice makes me think of ancient Greek instruments.

  Very powerful. Deep and dark and mysterious. I love this.

  With Twilight animated and Underwater in Ocean Waves, the ambiance is so soothing that I can listen for hours. The pads here alone would fit in the Submachine series - ethereal and beautiful.

  Reminds me of the movie Maze Runner "The Scorch Trials". Eerie!

  Play this with Wind Noise and Dark Forest and you get a nice calm, slightly creepy atmosphere, like searching the catacombs or an enchanted forest.

  This generator itself makes me think history - the past - and even what we don't know from lost histories; almost fitting for the name of it. I feel a sad tone from this one, and it definitely does bring out emotion. History and memories themselves are exactly what I think of with this generator. It really hits its mark perfectly, and it's perfect for particular kinds of emotional writing.

  Really good Minecraft music! I can just sit here and play it all day and feel like I'm really in another world that is mine to create and build!

  I combine this with Twilight, Singing Bowls, and Ultimate Rain Sound and let the animate take it away! So soothing, relaxing and peaceful!

  A small step for Man, but a giant leap for Mankind...

  This configuration makes this soundtrack much deeper and feels like the loss of eternal knowledge that is anamnesis, or even an afterlife after regaining such knowledge, staring blankly into the void of nonexistence.

  This is so perfect! I have a lot of trouble focusing on work when I'm at my desk. I am trying to kick the habit of having the TV on because it often distracts me half as much as it helps me. But on animation mode, this one is the perfect balance of interesting and calming.

  Greeks should be proud that this tone was named after them.

  Reminds me of Tolkien's elves, lost in memories of both light and shadow. With Ocean Waves it sounds like mourning for the loss of Beleriand and other fair lands that now lie beneath the restless waves of the Great Sea.

  Oh my... so beautiful, like an ethereal choir singing in the distance.

  The dragon sleep setting on this generator works well with the Healing Trees and the 60hz Code Breaker. It sets a really creepy atmosphere wherever you are.

  This really fits well with the Greek word "Anamnesis (αναμνησεις)". Nice job!

  So ethereal, haunting, and oddly moving...

  This is one of the most perfect soundscapes I've ever heard. Constantly listening it.

  This is absolutely beautiful, I have no words.

  I second the person who said, "These generators have become nearly as important to my success in college as the textbooks I buy." What an amazing website.

  I find this one especially creepy.

  These generators have become nearly as important to my success in college as the textbooks I buy. So I donated, and will donate again. Guys, if these are THAT important to your study and homework time, and you've spent loads on textbooks, classes, dorm rooms... then you can donate a few bucks to your favorite study tool. :P

  My ears <3

  This one makes me feel... religious. You should try it with the sailboat generator. It is amazing.

  Music has a profound impact on people, allowing them incredible introspection and release of emotions. Surprised to find this soundscape generator with the 'eerie' tag, I silenced some of the padding, eventually opted out of the vocals and created a desolate plane of solitude and reflection. Is this a perturbing shadow of the past or rediscovery of forgotten realms?

  Listening to this generator along with the Jungle Life generator makes me feel as if I'm watching and taking part in a mystical experience in a deep jungle. I looked into the undulating seas of blackness in front of my eyes, and I felt millions of years old — like an ancient, completely impassive force of unending calmness. It was spiritual. Every part of me felt alive.

  If I had to describe this with color, the way some describe TV's displaying white noise, I would have to call this green or blue fog. My mind bounces between both colors and I imagine floating in a misty fog of blue or green. The blue or green fog continues to surround and envelops me as if I were the very center of a planet made of nothing but atmosphere of varying shades of greens and blues.

  I've been listening to this on animate with the Warpspeed generator (set on Asleep in Quarters) and it's so... It makes me think of things I haven't in years. It's giving me more motivation to write than I've had in a while. I really love this generator.

  This is just— indescribable. It really made me realize how much power I have over my own mind, and that I can feel like I can control things. I can be calm, I can be loud, I can stay in control of who I am. The rumbles of the hums are grounding, and the purple pad just bring me above the skies. It's a perfect "in between".

  This is haunting, calming and somewhat sorrowful, like looking up into an immense starry sky and looking as far back as you can, trying to find something that you lost but can't remember.

  I keep coming back over and over again and everytime I find myself on a surprising journey through the beauty of sound. This is just so astonishing, I just can't describe it by words, no... there aren't words for this. It's something from another dimension. So strangely familiar... yet, unimaginably delightful.

  Everything feels... smoother, somehow. Muted.

  With the voice and the pad to the right of it high combined with Rainy Riverbank (emphasis on the rain), it takes you to a whole new world. Wonderfully relaxing yet unobtrusive to help you focus. Perfect background to a noisy open office floorplan workspace!

  This one reminds me of some of the older, more atmospheric Tangerine Dream tracks, like "Sequent C", "Phaedra" or "Movements of a Visionary". Absolute delight!

  It's like a haunting melody but at the same time heavenly

  Well, this one's spooky enough to make a good ambiance. I really like it.

  The Diffraction preset really reminds me of exploring different worlds in a Metroid game. <3

  This setting, combined with Deep Ocean set to Ocean Waves and Healing Trees, delivers a powerfully rushing experience that transports one into a world of magic and prophecy.

  Sets the perfect tone for George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. Bleak yet wondrous pads drone on driving a sense of loneliness and mystery. What is this place? Is there any hope of change? Will the lidless eyes of Big Brother ever dart away from me?

  By far my favourite generator, helped me write some really unearthly stuff. You HAVE to try listening to it alongside Lily's Theme from the Deathly Hallows soundtrack, it's absolutely ethereal. Love this <3

  Anamnesis... Easily my favorite sound generator. Makes it easier for me to study. Also, a fantastic calming agent.

  This sounds like an alternate heaven. Awesome.

  I put Irish coast on animate, then played this setting. Beautiful!

  Better with lesser pads.

  Like something waiting in the deep, breathing and watching. Creepy, lurking; a darkness engulfing as it draws upon, closer, closer. Its own bringing towards you, its terror almost a calmness.

  Every time you start to put the faders up from zero from left to right it feels like the beginning of a movie when the pictures are fading in from black.

  Wow, with this preset I felt like I was in the presence of god or something heavenly. Really Beautiful!

  Simply the best. Instant Deus Ex atmosphere!

  Tinnitus comment: Listened to this with earphones for over an hour at low volume. Barely noticed the sounds as they faded in and out, very soothing, but best of all, the sounds covered most of my high frequency tinnitus. Thank you!

  I read a comment that suggested listening to this track as well as the battle RPG track. They mixed really well! Like dramatic scene from an action movie!

  I feel free when I listen to this. I feel beautiful. It opens up my soul.

  Wow, this and the battlefield sounds creates a feeling of an enemy victory, or a devastation of a city or nation.

  Deus Ex: Human Revolution soundtrack generator. :-)

  Dragon sleep mixed with amniotic fluid from In Utero sounds like a horrible witch's brew, but it's soooo soothing.

  Anyone seeking escape from intrusive bass noise (neighbor's stereo, nearby concert, the Hum, etc.) need look no further. I had fruitlessly looked high and low until I stumbled on Dr. Pigeon's website, and discovered that the "Dragon Sleep" setting for Anamnesis, at full volume through a decent pair of earbuds, provides complete, unfailing relief. Thanks so much Stephane! ✌ Ken

  This sort of reminds me of Battlestar Galactica! I'm kind of having a religious experience here.

  This is the Silent Hill 2 sound generator. Definitely.

  ← The End

  Playing this animated with the Orchestron in another window is so magical and soothing.

  The perfect range to offset the chatter in a busy open plan office as well as focusing the mind. Don't know what I did before I found the Generator!

  ← Shadows

  This reminds me so much of my favorite film The Fifth Element. It's angelic and a little pit creepy all at once. Great addition to the mix!

  This is so in my zone, it's not even funny. Listening to this makes me feel like I'm living in a movie.

  I enjoy listening to this, it's angelic and relaxing. I disagree with Plato however, when I read this synopsis about how "a person can neither learn what he already knows, nor inquire about what is outside the scope of his knowledge". I couldn't help but think, what a load of ...cobblers. It's nonsense! Doesn't detract from the fact that this is a nice soundscape though. :-)

  I have absolutely no regrets donating to you, Dr. Pigeon. I suffer from anxiety and have been using some of the free sounds for a few days and it absolutely helps me with my meditation. I have three young children and find it difficult to get away from the noise, but I have found my escape through your generators. I thank you so much for your hard work. I encourage getting full access.

  I use the soundscapes on here to meditate quite often, but I tried Anamnesis for the first time today. Totally took me to another place, couldn't help but break into a huge grin. Thanks again! Will donate more soon.

  With a good pair of headphones, absolutely lovely.

  Really like this mix generator "number stations" and read a book. Falls into a trance and absorbs book after book, nothing is missing and not forgetting, as if you get into the flow of information.

  There is no chance I'll ever look back from donating! This site is a brilliant help when studying, doing homework, or coding. Thank you!

  I love this setting because the second to last slider on the left all the way up feels like it's breathing which calms me. The voice slider and the one immediately to the right of it reminds me of Final Fantasy 7 in the church and also Skyrim in a way, which is also very calming. I love the last few sliders on the deep end up all the way so others may want to mute and adjust those first.

  I picture a Cyberpunk cityscape, decades and decades into the future.

  This is one of the most hauntingly beautiful generators yet. It compels a deep sense of longing, but at the same time a feeling of contentment. I love drifting off to sleep with these sounds and waking up to them again. A true work of ambient art.

  ← Lost in Lows. So incredibly deep, smooth and calming. A universe of inspiration floating in a tonal train of thoughts.

  Like floating, watching the past, the present, and the future as merely a ghost. Mildly creepy, very emotional. If you think too hard, you will cry! Thank you, Stéphane, for such a beautiful generator.

  A beautiful soundscape that hides a deep sense of terror: the vast knowledge of eternity, too great to fathom, too grand to behold. Anamnesis is a gentle guide through the vast halls of knowledge and creativity that lay dormant within us, yearning to be rediscovered. Listen. Learn. Live again.

  I like combining this with the RPG Battlefield Generator (Set on "Artillery") and imagining a dramatic fight scene happening. '^' Super cool.

  This is beautiful and amazing!

  I'm just recovering from a particularly soul crushing round of seasonal depression, and have always felt a personal connection to the theory of anamnesis. Every year I have to relearn how to live and thrive again, feeling like a completely different person than I was just a few months ago, barely remembering them. This soundscape is absolutely perfect, and I am in tears. Thank you, thank you.

  I really enjoy this. When my head is swarming with questions and I just need to become calm and centered again I listen to this. Truly something I can come to again and again! I tend to like deeper sounds and this is perfect for me, and I don't find it creepy at all. It reminds me vaguely of the music you would find in the Devil May Cry Series.

  I don't use a custom level on this one, just pressed 'animate'. It strongly reminds me to the soundtrack of the video game Deus Ex. Brilliant, thank you, StÈphane!

  Although it's marked as melodic, I find this one super-creepy: The eons of experience of the soul echoing back into one's own life, given the time is right. Listening feels like observing Karma itself at work (whatever that may mean). I'd mark it with 2 spiders ;)

  ← Visions of the Past. Amazing generator, without a doubt one of my new favourites!

  Beautiful! It's perfectly inspiring.
