Randy Stack

Randy Stack

Randy Stack has spent most of his life exploring and transforming esoteric sciences into practical applications. As a young Catholic with aspirations of becoming a priest, Randy was inducted into Western Esoteric Tradition at the age of nine and, over the years, came to specialize in the adaptation of ancient esoteric knowledge to modern technology.

In 1977, Randy acquired his first computer and became a self-taught programmer. At 15, he gained early admission to Edison State College in Fort Myers, Florida and continued his formal education in computer science. Within two years, he began teaching computer science at the same school and introduced the then-emerging resources of digital media technology into the arts & humanities curricula. During his tenure, he co-authored an early college text on BASIC language programming.

Because of his long-time interest in music, Randy took a break from teaching to study electronic music under Dr. Robert Moog, inventor of the electronic music synthesizer, at the University of North Carolina at Asheville. It was there that he learned to combine his love for computers and music into a single pursuit. Randy became an early adopter of the MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) standard, departing from its conventional applications to create game-like software and interfaces to teach musical fundamentals such as interval, rhythm, harmony and timbral complexity. He also coded real-time signal processing algorithms for use in music production, often employing these as the basis for integrated stand-alone systems for a variety of interactive acoustical environments for studios, art installations, dance troupes and other public and private venues.

In 1984, Randy had his first encounter with biofeedback and sound / music-therapy. Seeing this as a unique opportunity to further unify his pursuits with his esoteric studies, he began consulting on numerous bio-acoustic and bio-entrainment projects, updating their analog technology with digital processors. His work included the realization of a computer-based signal processing system which could analyze and visualize the subtle bioelectric fields surrounding the human body, then taking an existing musical source and adapting its spectra to target specific resonant frequencies of an individual as discerned from continuous biometric feedback. This culminated in his BioLogic Signal Processor, the core software which has driven the GENESIS Bio-Entrainment Module from 1987 to the present. Applications for this technology include pain relief, stress reduction and relaxation.

He gave up his independent status in the late 1980s to take a position as Research Fellow with two of the companies for whom he’d consulted. With the additional resources of development teams, like-minded experts and high-performance supercomputing at his disposal, Randy pioneered the development of artificially-aware technologies, authoring the state- and rule-space libraries required for the implementation of an adaptive-stochastic vector engine based upon the CAM (Cellular Automata Machine) architecture and designing a hybrid analog / digital neural network processing platform to enable dynamically reconfigurable recursive computing. Therein, he created the hyper-dimensional toroidal modeling environment that would serve as the “virtual laboratory” for his work in the years to come. Prior to departing his research fellowship, Randy was granted patents for his developments in computer technology and materials processing.

In 2002, his company Psiometrics began working with AHA! Ventures and InnerSense, Inc CEO Don Estes, a “twin spirit” and someone who paralleled Randy’s, goals. Together they explored universal automata, vibrational science and harmonic law. They continued to conceive and create transformational technologies for the benefit of humanity, focusing on the individual, as a holistic entity comprised of body, mind & spirit, to their surrounding and sustaining environment. Their joint developments are covered under U.S. Patent #8788557, Bi-Phasic Applications of Real & Imaginary Separation and Reintegration in the Time Domain. The diversity of their backgrounds allowed each to make valuable contributions and, as a combined resource, they prove to be a valuable asset to the groundbreaking projects of Psiometric Science, Inc.

Born in the United States, Randy Stack now lives in Glastonbury, UK.
