Sound is a force of nature that relatively few individuals have understood well enough to fully utilize its breadth of application. For millennia, however, a few of those well versed persisted in their study of such arcana so that it has morphed into an advanced branch of science today. People through the ages have employed sound to accomplish a vast range of surprising, practical, even fearsome tasks – from achieving political and governmental strategies to agricultural and other commercial, religious, as well as personal purposes … from attaining a measure of control over civilians’ minds to liquefying body organs (or breaking up gallstones and destroying fibroid tumors in mainstream Western medicine today). Not well known is the fact that just as sound can be used to heal, however, it can be used to kill.
The US Navy has tested for over 7500 hours a low frequency active sonar devise to track submarines. It operates at 120 to 240 decibels or volume of sound. In comparison, a jet engine operates at about 120 decibels. As the decibel scale is logarithmic, 240 decibels is one billion times greater than 140 decibels, not to mention that sound travels farther and faster in water than in air.
After the navy employed this testing, many whales were beached, some showing the cause of death as destroyed brain and ear tissue damage. After being sued by environmental groups the military shelled out millions to research the effects of high-powered sonar on marine life.
According to a navy document, a Navy diver suffered dizziness, confusion, and tingling in the arms after being exposed to 15 minutes of 160 decibels of this sonar. Months later, he complained about on ongoing memory loss, depression and seizures. Another individual, Chris Reid, experienced similar short and long-term symptoms after being exposed to 124 decibels of the same sonar.
The walls of Jericho were reported to crumble, leaving the city defenseless and open to ruin, after the prolonged sound of trumpets. Harmonic scientist, Harold Moses claims that the sound of two pitches, five notes a part will create ongoing energy. Fabien Maman, a “sound” scientist, claims that playing in the key of “G” would enable such a task to be effective.
French scientist, Gavrand, experimented with the effects of a six-foot police whistle after World War II. The technician died on the spot when the whistle was sounded: an autopsy revealed that his organs had been jellied. Clearly the potential of sound as a weapon is evident.
The Chinese, many thousands of years ago, controlled elements of all music, such as pitches, style and the types of instruments used during different times of the year, so as to control the harmonics that each instrument created. This was done to police the sound vibrations entering the masses’ consciousness. The rulers believed this method enabled them to control the masses. While this approach may seem weird, their dynasties did last for thousands of years — while we have difficulty at times maintaining order with our presidential term of four years. Ancient Druid traditions also utilized perpetual choirs (24/7) to preserve certain energy frequencies that they believed might help them stay in power. Indeed, Lure states that the music did indeed stop before the ancient Druids lost power during the Inquisition.
Sound is now being used to produce specific brain waves in people. Numerous studies concerning the use of sound and light machines enable listeners to tune their brains to specific “help frequencies” that facilitate improvements, including increased abilities to learn and adapt quickly to change. Specific frequencies are also known to facilitate psychic phenomena such as remote viewing.
Other techniques for controlling brain functions come from the use of binaural beats in headphones to trigger the coordination of both left and right hemispheres of the brain, triggering whole-brain functioning rather than everyday right- or left-brain functioning. This technique has significant impacts on learning, IQ, creativity, and intuitive thinking. As above, so below, was the sage of Hermes, referring to the application of universal laws to the heavens, earth and also on a microscopic level. The work of French physicist, Joel Sternheimer, shows that amino acids could be isolated, and a unique frequency measured for each one. When different tones from a group of amino acids in a protein were combined, Sternheimer recognized some plant species’ songs as familiar ones such as “O Sole Mio” and “The Blue Danube.” Better yet, when Sternheimer played a plant’s amino acids’ songs back to the plants of the same species, he documented 250 percent plant growth and resilience to drought and disease. Several Internet companies, such as Sonic Bloom, now sell plant songs and nutrients for increased 50 to 500 percent growth.
People have observed numerical patterns in nature that often mirror our musical system of chords. These numbers can be converted to frequencies, exposing us aurally to numerical patterns often found in nature. Some believe that using new chords with these same numerical patterns could effect change in mass consciousness. Some composers, such as Jill Mattson, used these patterns of vibrations in their music.
Fabien Maman, who lives in France, has taken pictures with Kirlian photography of cells in our bodies exposed to a variety of frequencies. He documented the shapes and colors of the cells while they were undergoing changes, depending on the pitch and type of instrument used (which affect the dominant harmonics of a pitch). He also showed certain sounds exploding helia cancer cells, which are rigid and unable to resonate with some frequencies.
This is just a sampling of many fascinating stories of the powers of sound and music that can be harnessed. I have years of experience introducing people to these powers in intriguing, entertaining, and indeed enthralling ways, opening a whole new world to audiences so they never again consider sound, hearing, or even our ears in the same way.
