" There is in souls a sympathy
And as the mind is pitch'd
With melting airs, or martial, brisk or grave,
Some chord in unison with what
Is touch'd within us, and the heart replies."

|The Spiral Pattern of Fibonacci Series of Leaves
The leaves of a plant when seen from above grow in a spiral pattern. The angles between one leaf and
the next follow a strict mathematical series known as the Fibonacci Series. This ensures that each individual leaf on the
plant stem receives the maximum amount of sunlight available.

THE NATURE OF SOUND
Designers of classical Renaissance times developed an unbroken tradition of study based upon arithmetic, geome-try, and astronomy.
They held music to be the essential ingredient. Music was the supreme discipline, providing a philosophical foundation for
the visual arts grounded in a universal order.The parallels between "musical experience" and the sub atomic reality are remarkably
similar. Physicists seem to rely mostly on numbers and instrumentation to "see" and map resonances. An artist relies on his
or her senses and intuitions.
Music, and the Human Form
Proportions such as the golden section thus represent relationships seen in geometry and mathematics,art and architecture,sound
and music-and the human body. Taking the whole body as a fundamental, there are numerous proportions to be discovered. Within
the head, the chin-to-eyebrow distance represents a fifth interval. The tapering of human limbs illustrates the law of rhythmic
diminution, clearly shown by the proportions of the hand, and the closing of the fist in a natural spiral - a living embodiment
of the Fibonacci sequence. Thus sound and music express cosmic laws. They are gateways leading from the world of our senses
to the intelligible world. The laws that govern them have been embodied in the natural world since life began. Plant and animal
cells are packed into space in the orders of Platonic solids; bees fashion perfectly hexagonal cylinders; conches, nautiluses,
and other molluscs reveal the same harmonic proportions in the spiralling patterns of their shells; even microscopic unicellular
creatures display jewel-like examples of geometric symmetry.
The human body is a living manifestation of these ratios and proportion,. It is a "sounding board" awaiting the positive influences
of therapeutic sounds, in which pitch and volume, resonance and harmony, play vital roles. We are an integral part of the
unique and consistent geometry of our planet, demonstrated by life forms and consciousness. We are part of, and respond to,
the music of Gaia.

The human body is made of atoms which are found throughout the Universe.The human organism can be viewed as a manifestation
of vibrational states-in a sense,a cohesion of matter, sound, and light.visible for us, and thereby clearly demonstrating
the similiarties between the patterns and forms we see in nature, and the patterns and forms inherent in sound.
Music and proportion
The mathematical ratios and relationships between musical sounds, scales, octaves, and harmonics are no isolated
curiosity.They appear in many forms throughout nature, as shown by these two examples.The interval of a fifth is particularly
important. It has the next-smallest wavelength after the fundamental note; The fifth is of essential importance in musical
systems worldwide. Following the development of geometry in ancient times, the proportions of the principal musical intervals
could at last be seen in visual form, as the regular geometric forms known as the Platonic solids. The second example is the
musical relationship termed the major sixth, in which the frequencies of the notes are in the ratio 8:5. The ratio of the
major sixth has its parallel in visual terms.It is familiar to artists and architects alike as the golden section, also known
as the golden mean or divine proportion.

Atoms are constantly vibrating and emitting
infrared radiation in a highly complex manner. However, precisely because of the complexity of their infrared vibrations,
molecules also produce much lower "beat" frequencies. It turns out that these beats are within the human audible range (20
to 20,000 Hertz) and are specific for every different molecule. Thus, as well as radiating in the infrared region, molecules
also broadcast frequencies in the same range as the human voice. This is the molecular signal that Benveniste detects and
records. If molecules can broadcast, then they should also be able to receive. The specific broadcast of one molecular species
will be picked up by another, "tuned" by its molecular structure to receive it. Benveniste calls this matching of broadcast
with reception "co-resonance", and says it works like a radio set.
The ' window frequencies ' known as Schuman Resonances
are the vibrational frequencies of the earth's electromagnetic fields (emfs). This means that the brain waves of a person
in the Alpha [ 8 - 13 Hz ] and Beta [ 14 - 30 Hz ] states will resonate in sympathy with the earth's emfs producing constructive
interference which amplifies the vibration.The discovery of millions of crystals in the cells of the brain suggests that the
brain might be able to tune in (similar to a radio receiver) to the surrounding earth's emfs, the crystals providing the vibratory
link between the earth's natural frequencies [ from its surface to the boundry of its solid inner core ] and the Alpha - Beta
brain waves, resulting in Schuman Resonances with a diurnal variation of Plus or Minus 0.5 Hz
The transmission of waves
from the brain throughout the body - in possibly a similar way to transmission of radio waves from a radio tuned to a certain
frequency - could help the body achieve its own particular resonant frequencies thought to achieve, or be conducive to, optimal
health. Under normal healthy circumstances, the brain transmits correct frequencies to all cells of the body to keep them
resonating at the optimal frequency by tuning into the electromagnetic atmospherics via Schumann Resonances - an essential
role in all resonate effects, whether these are photonic,sonic, gravitational, electromagnetic or gravitonic.
What is more startling is that the visualised sounds are scalar frequencies inherent in Nature's Silence
( natural sounds of extremely low frequency [ ELF ] such as the splashing of a water-fall, the gurgling,meandering flow of
a stream, the reverberating sound of thunder and lightning,the howling of the wind and the sferics of celestial orchestration
"Visual Music" speaks a language made of three-dimensional, sound-emitting images. In other words,
its language, the inner harmonic tones, caused by Electron Spin Resonance of absorbed chemicals by smell or ingestion. which
gains in energy the longer it is sustained, can actually become visible - as if the vibrational wave patterns were shifting
into the visible spectrum or inducing a vibrational excitation of the air in such a way as to affect light diffraction .Thus,
sounds can be seen and colours be heard, the phonons and photons of biological origin. Curiously, mystics have always called
the pervasive creative sacred Sound, Logos or Word, the Audible Life Stream (Blavatsky, 1987; Hines, 1996). They declare the
Light and the Sound are one [ Sonoluminescence ], and the holographic concept is another name for Unity.
" All things.... are aggregations of atoms that dance and by their movements produce sounds. When the rhythm of the
dance changes, the sound it produces also changes. each atom perpetually sings its song, and the sound, at every moment, creates
dense and subtle forms. "
- Alexandra David-Neel in Tibetan Journey
In modern physics, sound is a wave with a certain frequency which changes when the sound does,and
that particles, the modern equivalent of the old concept of atoms, are also waves with frequencies proportional to their energies.
According to field theory, each particle does indeed ' perpetually sing its song ', producing rhythmic patterns of energy
in ' dense and subtle forms'.
Acoustical holography employs sound waves to create a movement on a surface that is used as the
basis for creation of an optical hologram. So we essentially convert between a pattern of sound waves reflected off an object
in space into a pattern of light waves that can reconstruct the shape of that object. We have a transformation between two
levels of vibration, two media as it were, preserving a pattern in space. (Miller and Webb, 1973).
What is more startling is that sound, which gains in energy the longer it is sustained, can actually become visible
- as if the vibrational wave patterns were shifting into the visible spectrum or inducing a vibrational excitation of the
air in such a way as to affect light diffraction. Working from the hypothesis that this visible phenomenon might somehow proceed
from the interior harmonic tones made audible through the ingestion, inhalation and absorption of products and further speculating
that these tones might be caused by the electron spin resonance of the metabolizing these assimilated substances within the
nervous system, the task became one of attempting to determine how to produce a visible standing wave and, further, of attempting
to describe just what this wave might be in physical terms.
The temporal process of metabolism leads in the human brain to a special kind of phenomenon, which is thought, and the nature
and texture of this thought is affected and altered in relation to what specific metabolic processes are occurring within
the brain. It is not longer tenable to regard these processes of consciousness merely as an epiphenomenal reflection of the
metabolic processes occurring simultaneously within the brain. It has been found that this process is a two-way exchange:
Metabolism gives rise to special kinds of potentiated energy states within an organism, but these energy states reflect and,
in some degree, determine what kind of metabolic processes will occur.
Therefore, the ancients have this to say: Food is Medicine and Medicine is food.
We are what we eat
We are what we drink
We are what we breathe
We are what we think
Clearly, thought does have causal effect; reality, as we perceive it, is largely shaped by the artifacts, both material and
symbolic, of thought.Thought-Form is visualised speech.Thoughts, as visualised speech heard in silent reading, prayer or observation,
are osseous vibrations amplified and transmitted in mineralised body cavities. The highly reactive metals ,rarely found as
pure elements, become minerals first to be biological by reacting with Oxygen,Hydrogen,Nitrogen,Sulphur,Chlorine etc. The
metallic atoms in minerals are the centres of charge in large molecules that form cells and living tissues. The metallic elements
coordinate and direct the flow of electrons, atomic reactions,strength of membranes and enzymatic actions in biological life.Concentration
of metals in all bio-objects creates their specific electromagnetic characteristics. Salt, a product of ionic chemicals,an
acid and a base, is chemical fire. Cell salts are the bioradiate Life Force, Prana or Chi which comprises the Living or Spiral
Wave of the Universe.
A tuned resonant cavity is a hollow space, the dimensions of which have a naturally occuring frequency which sets up a resonance, or harmonic feedback loop,
and tunes with another frequency,that other frequency is the Human Mind for the purpose of eliciting various altered states
of consciouness.Therefore, thought can have direct influence on the physical texture of reality.
Listen to the holistic refrains and visualise the greater picture William
Blake delineated in these resonant words.
It's the first stanza of the poem "Auguries of Innocence" by the mystical poet William
Blake (1757 - 1827):
To see a world in a grain of sand
And Heaven in a Wild Flower;
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
and Eternity in an hour."
- William Blake
Of all the strange worlds few are as strange as the sands in beaches..
There, between the grains, is a microscopic ecosystem populated by sand-lickers, sticky-toed worms and four-legged "water
bears".It's a world that remains largely unexplored, despite being near enough to touch.The animals living in the sand are
often less than a millimetre long and sometimes as small as one-twentieth of a millimetre. They make up for size with numbers:
Scientists estimate that a bucket of sand might hold thousands of these tiny creatures; in a few square metres of beach, there
might be millions.
This world plays by rules different from ours, researchers
say. And the first rule is: Grab hold of something. For such creatures, even the smallest wave breaks with tsunami force.
Every creature manages to hold on in its own way. Animals called water bears, which have the puffed-up bodies and stubby limbs
of a parade balloon animal, use tiny claws or suction cups. Worms called gastrotrichs have bodies covered with tiny tubes
that secrete a cement. Other animals use spikes, which jam them into place, or toes that produce sticky glue. , In many cases,
the animals anchor themselves using sand grains. In their world, these grains are large objects, less likely than a tiny animal
to be swept out to sea. The animals live either on or between the grains.
The sand is a buffet, as well as a
shelter. Scientists say the grains are often covered in bacteria or tiny plants calle diatoms.Enough sunlight penetrates the
sand that these plants can survive even an inch under the surface.This food is licked off by worms that crawl over the surface
of a grain or is munched on by tiny shrimp-like creatures with waving legs called copepods. An animal called Tetranchyroderma
looks like a flying carpet with a mouth, propelling itself with a bellyful of hairs and vacuuming up bacteria in a giant maw.
Some worms called polychaetes simply eat the sand whole and let their digestive systems clean it off. Out the back end, eventually,
comes a trail of clean sand. "It really is a different kind of existence, the interstitial environment," said Douglas Miller,
a professor at the University of Delaware. Scientists call these creatures "interstitial" because they live in the interstices,
or empty spaces, between grains.
Life in this world is short: Most creatures live only a few weeks. That means
they need to be ready for reproduction quickly, often a few days after birth. Some creatures have both male and female organs,
although they don't usually fertilise themselves. Some can actually switch back and forth between being male and female.Because
these creatures are so hard to see, they've been studied for only 100 years or so. Because these creatures are so little understood,
scientists are just beginning to explore what they can tell us about pollution or climate change. In other places around the
world. and creatures have been shown to be sensitive to contamination. But there have been few case studies in the mid-Atlantic.
Even though they
have just begun to map the world of the sand dwellers, scientists are sure of one thing: We should be glad these creatures
are there. They don't seem to cause any human diseases. In fact, they seem to act as the beach's unseen cleaning crew, eating
the bacteria left behind by our discarded fries and uncurbed dogs.And these creatures sit at the bottom of several important
food chains: They feed baby fish and small crabs and clams, which become food for a succession of larger creatures. Some important
animals eat beach life directly, such as the piping plover, a threatened bird species.
"If the people appreciate the shorebirds," said Don
Boesch, president of the University of Maryland Centre for Environmental Science, they should understand that the birds are
alive because of "all of these little organisms that are living between the sand grains." - LAT-WP

The fluid presence in our bodies is our fundamental
environment; we are the moving water brought to land.
In utero the amniotic and the embryo engage
in a sphere in which there is no separation. Our early existence is inclusive: the embryo recapitulates our planetary process,
we contain all forms, all possibilities. A claw, a fin, a hand are all blueprints in this biomorphic plan. Chemical codes
will determine whether we will have a snout or a nose. The web between our fingers, the membranous dura mater and esophagus,
the suspiciously protozoan curve of our brains and viscera that lie pulsating in water, are vestiges of ancient worlds here
before we were, resonating in us through their varied undulating messages.
As human beings, we are an accrual of many
life forms that have been shaped by our oceanic origins, still pulsating as the intrinsic world of our organs, our connective tissue, our nerve fiber. We are a process
of millions of years of an open-ended experiment. Our forms have been designed and redesigned, unendingly adaptive and innovative.
