Sound and vibration in creation are coming more and more into the forefront of foundational scientific thinking. Australian Aboriginal tradition says: “—-primordial sound created the world and everything in it.” Science is now taking this idea seriously and is actually basing a great deal of research on this idea.
Sound and vibration are difficult to apprehend and to understand. There are too many facets of the subject to allow us to talk about it general terms. Therefore, think about creation. Science has fairly well settled the issue about sound in creation. A group of theorists and scholars headed by John Stuart Reid in the UK have been working very hard and long to establish an empirical system of studying sound. They have largely succeeded. Now, through their efforts we have the cymascope which can capture and exhibit the peculiar and essential characteristics of sound waves. String theory has been profoundly pursuing this idea of vibration and creation for many years and now it is possible to actually see sound waves and particle waves in order to understand.
“According to string theory, absolutely everything in the universe—all of the particles that make up matter and forces—is comprised of tiny vibrating fundamental strings. … The body of the violin has resonant frequencies, which work to amplify the sound created by the vibrating string.”
This principle is one which is viable in every discipline from mathematics to medicine—the principle of harmonics—which is so obviously present in the field of music. Sound and vibration are self-evident universally.
“Vibration underpins all matter in the universe.No matter can exist without vibration.” John Stuart Reid
SOUND AND VIBRATION IN CREATION DEFINED
Sound and vibration in creation cover myriads of subjects. First, we must decide what sound and vibration really are.
This link is worth following. “Sound is the transfer of vibrational information at the moment of collision between any two atoms or molecules.” John Stuart Reid and his wife Annaliese have written a profound expose` on the properties and history of sound research. The remarkable thing about their research is its scope and the vastness of applications which they and their colleagues make in this field of sound.
Over the eons of time since the scientific method has come into being, knowledge has proliferated to the point that it is difficult to narrow one’s thinking to a place of simplicity. So, lets’ look at this one statement: Sound occurs when two atoms or molecules collide. Our finite human minds almost defy considering anything that we cannot see. We cannot “see” atoms. I can recall as a child the furor and even fear that was generated when Robert J Oppenheimer and his colleagues started talking about “splitting the atom” which was thought to be the smallest particle of matter in the ’30’s and ’40’s. When they succeeded in doing just that, Oppenheimer made the observation that “—he had become death, the destroyer of worlds.” Certainly, this scenario is a possibility. But think about how far science has progressed since the splitting of the atom; or the advances in medical science.
At the very least, we now have a firm foundation for furthering the investigation of what role sound really plays in the whole creation saga. And the further we go into this fascinating field of sound and vibration in creation, the more profoundly obvious it becomes that this idea of sound an vibration is definitive. It simply remains for mankind to follow the path to truth diligently.
SOUND AND VIBRATION IN CREATION SEEN IN SCRIPTURE
What interests me most is that something suddenly comes to light in the scripture that reads: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God.” (John 1:1) And also: “All things were created by Him and for Him. He is before all things and in Him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:16, 17) What does this mean? And here is where we must put our sanctified imaginations to the fullest of their usefulness. Did you ever consider that those scripture verses were not only to be seen in the spiritual realms, but could also have a very deep meaning in the physical and material world as well? Words are sounds: sounds are vibrations: vibrations are cohesive forces. Is the ultimate energy in creation the sound of the Word of God? And Who is the Word of God? Jesus. Remember that Einstein said: “Imagination is great than intelligence or knowledge.”
SOUND AND VIBRATION IN CREATION FOR HEALING
Again, this link is important enough to refer to a second time. The wealth of stimulating thought is staggering, if one has the least interest in fresh and potentially revolutionary ideas. One of the statements made early in this article is: “Sound (is) the primordial organizer of the universe.” (John Stuart and Annaliese Reid)
The word primordial gives me, as the write of this blog a bit of pause, because it customarily infers that the defining qualities are from a past that cannot be documented. It belongs to the pre-historic age and I am not sure how I feel about that. My philosophies date from Genesis 1 and “—In the beginning—-“. All things pre-eminate from that time. But that is not worth spending space on here and can be saved for another blog.
The “sound-ness” (pun intended) of that inference is that vibration and frequency and sound are inherent to creation. The only way matter could have emanated from nothing, as Genesis says, is by “Sound” – the Sound of God’s voice, whether spoken or, as I believe, sung.
That being the case, it can easily be inferred that the Creator of that Sound, being Omnipotent God, had a perfect plan already in place before He uttered that Sound. Therefore, all of the harmonics and sub-harmonics had to be already perfectly designed and articulated. This concept, fully understood from even a purely mathematical point of view would explain Pythagoras’ Golden Mean, which can only sound baffling and difficult to grasp without perfect design behind it. Once this concept is in place it becomes logical that vibration and sound could be the only dependable means for healing from within the organism itself.
Follow these ideas, add to them and question them, but don’t ignore them. Because there is no end to the corollaries in art, science, math, medicine, ad infinitum.
