Sound Showing a Hidden Structure in Our Universe
Sound is a potent force. Even for those who are deaf, sound can be felt physically, and it still has an effect. As humans, we are born knowing this.
Researching sound is not merely about looking at it as a simple element. Sound can make us feel much harder to understand and resonate with many other factors.
Sound can distract or focus our minds on a task at hand, and sound can drive us to be productive! Hearing sounds can trigger chemical reactions in our brain and transport us to a euphoric state of mind. It alerts us to impending dangers or opportunities in our environment.
Sound is also one of the primary tools we use to manifest material reality and bring our ideas to fruition. Just try to consider verbal communication’s magical effect on others.
The true origins of the magician’s favorite phrase, “abracadabra,” are contested and ambiguous. However, there is evidence that it might have come from ancient Hebrew or Aramaic, where it would mean “I will create as I speak” or “I create like the word.” Every religion’s account of the beginning begins with sound.
In Eastern philosophy, “aum” was the first sound that sparked existence. Christianity believes that God created the universe with His words. In contrast, Jewish mystics believe that creation texts like the Sefer Yetzirah created the universe.
Examples of ancient Egyptian teachings also shared this same sentiment regarding creation. This belief in the “sound of creation” was even taught in Ptah’s schools, with him being the God who conveyed life through his tongue and heart.
When we think about the physical properties of sound, it makes total sense that these myths stem from the relationship between sound and matter. The sound can’t travel through the vacuum of space, so a physical medium is necessary to generate it and cause it to spread.
Whether gas, plasma, liquid, or solid, its waves must be propagated. It has been hypothesized that the connection between sound, vibration, and the universe can be found in its elemental components. Everyone should take the time to consider this ancient wisdom.
The Platonic solids are the best example of this in modern esoteric circles. They are emerging from Plato’s theory of an unseen blueprint existing throughout the universe and dictating the structure of physical reality. The Platonic solids have existed for a very long time.
They have become an integral part of what we call sacred geometry. People worldwide, across multiple cultures, have acknowledged their spiritual nature.
They are deeply significant on many levels—physical, metaphysical, and even ceremonial—because they represent one of the fundamental ways we experience life on Earth.
The ancient Greeks realized these shapes, yet they weren’t the first. Stones similar to these shapes have been found in Scotland, where they were created millennia ago.
Plus, Hindu yantras depict a similar concept, while the idea of prisms can be found in Pythagoras’ words. So, whoever we decide to give credit to, it’s safe to say that this knowledge is ultimately archetypal. Numerous cultures conceived it.
Essentially, the idea is to understand that our universe is spherical and all points are equally distant from its center. Within this circle, there are multiple divisions like the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron.
On a cosmic scale, these divisions are the same as the vibrations (sonic, frequency, or energetic) in our universal plane that create the fundamental elements and their permutations. Even though we’re centuries ahead of the Greek thinkers, there are still many connections.
Today’s philosophers are now debating the same topics, such as how man interacts with nature. Some radical thinkers came before us. They were polymaths like Da Vinci, physicists like Galileo, and the more obscure English scientist Robert Hooke.
They all made great observations about our world regarding resonance, wavelengths, and visualizing sound. All this paved the way for groundbreaking innovations in cymatics.
Whenever he ran a bow along the edge of a glass plate, Hook noticed that specific patterns would appear spontaneously. Soon after this, German musician and physicist Ernst Chladni went on to repeat Hooke’s experiments and document them further.
Accordingly, he identified various arrangements, which came to be known by their eponymous name, Chladni Figures. But these symmetrical figures weren’t just aesthetically pleasing; a century later, they would provide a crucial hint to the father of quantum physics, Erwin Schrödinger.
As he was working out the fundamentals of quantum mechanics, he used his knowledge of symmetry. The Chladni pattern that resembles a mathematical equation was discovered to be relevant to quantum equations in one-electron atoms by Schrödinger.
Suddenly, discussions of sound and matter seemed to make more sense from a materialistic scientific perspective. A Swiss scientist at the Rudolf Steiner School in Zürich picked up from his acoustic predecessors and coined the fascinating study of “cymatics” (from the Greek word “kyma,” meaning “wave”).
Hans Jenny led the discovery of a wide range of Chladni figures that could be produced on crystals, including sound oscillators, which cover all ranges from ultra-low to ultra-high frequencies.
Cymatics has been an intriguing subject of research for many years now. Still, it’s exciting that the latest findings may finally result in practical applications.
Biomedical scientists use cytometry to compare cancer cells with healthy ones to target surgery more effectively. Meanwhile, other researchers use sound waves to grow bones and other tissues.
They are invaluable to medical procedures and will likely continue to provide clues about the nature of life. As we go forward with these studies and explore the opportunities sound healing offers, it becomes clear how deep its roots are in every aspect of life. Maybe it also holds the key to transcending as well?
