Biorhythms

This is the same program that was released a few years ago without the ability to output a months biorhythms at a go, the on screen diagram still only shows a fortnight at a time. The output to an rtf file displays a complete month from the present date.

This version is also enhanced by giving the user the ability to move the display forward or backwards by a day, fourteen days or twenty eight day. The user can now go backwards or forwards any length of time to say review their next/previous holiday period, for planning dates, or for looking at birthdays or the festive period, or for working away from home for any length of time. The display shows all black Fridays with black coloured boxes, it will soon display the lunar quarters in the online version of the program 'Talisman 7'.

The main use of this program in the Talisman Suite is as a free subscriber PR device, the user can select their regular customers and email them a free monthly output, the same is also true for the IChing in this version of the program.

Biorhythms History

'The notion of periodic cycles in human fortunes is ancient; for instance, it is found in natal astrology and in folk beliefs about "lucky days". The 23- and 28-day rhythms used by biorhythmists, however, were first devised in the late 19th century by Wilhelm Fliess, a Berlin physician and patient of Sigmund Freud. Fliess believed that he observed regularities at 23- and 28-day intervals in a number of phenomena, including births and deaths. He labelled the 23-day rhythm "male" and the 28-day rhythm "female", matching the menstrual cycle. In 1904, psychology professor Hermann Swoboda claimed to have independently discovered the same cycles. Later, Alfred Teltscher, professor of engineering at the University of Innsbruck, came to the conclusion that his students' good and bad days followed a rhythmic pattern of 33 days. Teltscher believed that the brain's ability to absorb, mental ability, and alertness ran in 33-day cycles. One of the first academic researchers of biorhythms was also Estonian-born Nikolai Pärna, who published a book in German called Rhythm, Life and Creation in 1923. The practice of consulting biorhythms was popularized in the 1970s by a series of books by Bernard Gittelson, including Biorhythm — A Personal Science, Biorhythm Charts of the Famous and Infamous, and Biorhythm Sports Forecasting. Gittelson's company, Biorhythm Computers, Inc., made a business selling personal biorhythm charts and calculators, but his ability to predict sporting events was not substantiated. Charting biorhythms for personal use was popular in the United States during the 1970s; many places (especially video arcades and amusement areas) had a biorhythm machine that provided charts upon entry of date of birth. Biorhythm charts were common in newspapers, usually found with horoscopes, at the time as well. Biorhythm programs were a common application on personal computers; and in the late 1970s, there were also hand held biorhythm calculators on the market, the Kosmos 1 and the Casio Biolator. Though biorhythms have declined in popularity, there are numerous websites on the Internet that offer free biorhythm readings. In addition, there exist free and proprietary software programs that offer more advanced charting and analysis capabilities.'

The cycles were then set by observation and correlation to determine that the physical cycle was then set at twenty three days, the emotional cycle was then set at twenty eight days and finally the intellectual cycle was determined as being thirty two days.

The study is as scientific as it could be made and as no scientific study is an exact science, these approximations give good results when viewed as a complete set, taking into account the transitions between the positive cycle and the negative cycle the critical days were then shown to be fairly accurate for their needs and so they used them to set long haul runs for their drivers and showed a significant reduction in accident ratios to use the then named 'Biorhythms' for continued use. They have now gone on into the public stream and are used by ordinary people to track critical days for personal uses.
