Cymatics (from Greek: κῦμα “wave”) is the study of visible sound and vibration
I came across Cymatics some time ago and was fascinated with its practical example on how life came into form. What struck me was the suggestion that sound was responsible for the link between life and form and how they came together to manifest the expression of life. At this point I had a problem, not with the concept but in the way it was explained which didn’t make any sense. Perhaps it was my lack of understanding regarding what was being expressed or perhaps I did understand and it was they who lost the point. Let me explain. By the way, this is just the way I see it and I hope it makes more sense than the explanation in the videos.
Below is a video with a excellent overview of the whole process of creation from a physicist with a scientific and enlightened view.
So here’s my problem.
Sound is a phenomenon that is caused by the fact that we have an atmosphere which holds the air that we breathe. When a sound such as music occurs in air, it vibrates the air at the same frequencies of the music that is played. These frequencies in the air reach our ear drums and cause them to vibrate and then our ear system creates the electrical signals which represent the music and we hear the music in our brain.
Sound is the movement of air in our atmosphere, period! The sound that we hear is based on electrical impulses to our brain. Our atmosphere exists within our planet and sound is limited to that space and exists nowhere else unless we discover other planets with similar properties.
The Electromagnetic Spectrum
is a limitless ocean of waves from radio to gamma and in the form of light. Sound is not part of the Electromagnetic Spectrum. It is an electric universe and where there is electricity, there is magnetism.
Maybe this is what was meant in the first video above, but if it was, I found it misleading.
Cymatics is a wonderful graphical and physical representation of what happens in this ocean of what maybe termed as primordial sound, the Electromagnetic Spectrum of Waves which can only be heard or seen by transducing its energy into a form we can experience. There is a small part of this spectrum that we can experience directly and that is visible light, the light that our eyes can register in the form of primary colours. Other frequencies of light waves effect us depending on the radiation. There is suggestion that outside cosmic radiation constantly effects our consciousness. X rays can permanently damage us phyically. The Electromagnetic Spectrum is light in all its variety of wavelengths which vibrates through the universe bringing particles into form in the same way as you see in the Cymatics demonstration. Don’t forget that a particle also acts as a wave depending on conscious observation i.e consciousness. Consciousness collapses the wave into a particle and particles are what is said to make up so called matter.
The major point to see is that this primal sound in all its forms has originated from the Primacy of Consciousness, the intelligence behind everything. We are consciousness expressing ourself through form.
I personally am not religious but it was stated in the two videos. “In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God.” ‘The word’ was not sound but the universal vibration behind everything. Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient. This original vibration is the source of life and the creator of form. An idea explaining this can be seen in the video below.
Nevertheless it is highly evident through years of scientific research and my own personal experience that sound can have a dramatic effect on our biochemistry and consciousness. see below.
