Music Moves More Than the Soul

From: Brooke @

atlantis levitating pyramidsNo time to chat, just stopping in to share a little of my Saturday morning associative chain of obsessions, then I have places to be.


[…] One rather interesting theory comes from the Jane Roberts/Seth material. When asked specifically about how the Pyramid was constructed, Seth says that sound was an integral ingredient…..

“This is a difficult subject. For the movement of heavy tons of rock for ex ample different techniques, using sound and precise mathematical calculations were necessary. Many civilizations grew and flourished in fertile areas simply because the people knew how to make them fertile and to keep them that way. Matter was manipulated through sound.”

To expound on this premise, Seth told Jane to visualize herself at the scene of the building of the Pyramid, to which she responded…

“I feel that a whole mass of people would visualize a pyramid in their imagination, then through their chanting, the use of certain vowels and pitches, they actually changed the air where that building was going to be. They made a boundary in the air, making angular gestures, a cohesiveness, for this imaginary structure. Then they had certain kinds of tuning forks, then some kind of instrument. The noise of the chant was like something that you’d use to turn on this instrument - when the chant got to a certain pitch it turned on this instrument, and it somehow intensified and focused sound to what we would call an incredible energy degree - broke it down and then focused it in certain directions. You could move very heavy objects with it. The objects were levitated - raised up in the air, no matter how heavy. They only needed to be guided by people to some degree. Many men were used to guide them but not to lift or carry them. The sound instrument had a fantastic cohesive effect that bound atoms and molecules together. Something about these instruments making atoms and molecules denser, somehow - doing different things with them…”

Seth replied that this information was substantially correct and added, “You know that sound has an effect upon living things. It can help mend bone. It can also be used, to reinforce structures. We are in the preliminary stages, hopefully leading to some understanding of the nature of sound, though (humorously) you may not yet be able to build a pyramid in your back yard.”

[…] Seth also goes on to give a warning about the overzealous use of sound in construction….

“In some respects the over enthusiastic use of the sound was responsible for the flood mentioned in the Bible, and other literature. There were several characteristics that proved difficult. Literally, the sound traveled further often than was intended, causing consequences not planned upon.”

[…] an interesting side note in favor of some sort of acoustic levitation is that in virtually every culture where megaliths exist, there are legends of huge stones being levitated acoustically by the use of chants, songs, musical instruments, gongs, cymbals, drums, or by striking the stone and causing some sort of vibrational resonance to set the stone in motion.

Skeptical? Intrigued? Either way, go watch this video: Acoustic Levitation Chamber.

Hans Jenny: Cymatics wave pattern I got on this little kick by way of another little kick I was on before it, after Tim of Pop Occulture linked to a Wikipedia article on Cymatics. This is fascinating stuff for a musician who’s also a visual artist (I can’t believe I’ve never heard of this before!) and one who’s also always envied synaesthetics. (Speaking of which, check out this artist, Justin Lassen). But I digress.

The picture on the left is from one of Hans Jenny’s experiments in Cymatics. It was made with sound. It is a visual manifestation of a specific sound frequency. Anyway, I’m running out of time, but here’s a bit from Wikipedia:

Cymatics is the study of wave phenomena. It is typically associated with the physical patterns produced through the interaction of sound waves in a medium.

A simple experiment demonstrating the visualisation of cymatics can be done by sprinkling sand on a metal plate and vibrating the plate, for example by drawing a violin bow along the edge, the sand will then form itself into standing wave patterns such as simple concentric circles. The higher the frequency, the more complex the shapes produced, with certain shapes having similarities to traditional mandala designs.

How super cool is that. And how perfect a thing to incorporate into a certain secret art experiment I’ve been playing with. The creative wheels are turning out colorful harmonious visions in full force. Oh, and the image of a snake with a halo very clearly revealed itself to me in the pavement earlier, which sent more ideas spinning off colorfully in many directions. But never you mind. Go watch some videos of cymatics in action.
