In brain wave frequencies, theta is the frequency range where drowsiness, unconciousness, dreaming states and deep tranquility happen. Most daydreaming occurs while in the theta range. It is normally a very positive mental state.

Theta is approximately 4 to 7 cps (cycles per second). Some researchers regard theta to be 5 to 8 cps.

With practice, meditation can also lower a person's brain wave frequency to theta while allowing the meditator to remain concious.

Prolonged states of the theta brain wave frequency while concious can be extremely productive and a time of very meaningful/creative mental activity.
