WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU RESEARCH A 2,500 YEAR OLD PYTHAGOREAN THEORY?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU RESEARCH A 2,500 YEAR OLD PYTHAGOREAN THEORY?

In December 2017, an exciting project began with far-reaching implications for the sound healing community…

New research by Professor Sungchul Ji of Rutgers University and acoustics physics researcher, John Stuart Reid was conducted in his laboratory in the United Kingdom. Much “initial phase” work was involved in creating a protocol for the experiment using human red blood cells, to show the extent to which the life of the cell can be influenced by music.

The first experiment involved exposing the cells to classical music in an incubator for twenty minutes, while a control vial was placed in a quiet environment in the lab’s Faraday Cage* (an enclosure used to block electromagnetic fields during scientific experimentation) for the same time period. The results were significantly positive in favor of the influence of music on the red blood cell count. The cell grouping which had been exposed to music was significantly higher in numbers! Many more experiments will be needed and are anticipated to show the impact of sound on human cells. Excitedly, this first one has increased great interest in future findings.

Pictured are Mandara Cromwell and Sound Education Director Kate Holland with John Stuart Reid in the UK laboratory, which has been the site of many cymatic discoveries and creation of images generated by the frequencies of the AMI devices.

John and Professor Ji are continuing the next phase of their research which will certainly include many forms of healing sound.

We anxiously await the next great cymatic news!

*The Faraday Cage is named after one of the first experimenters interested in the nature of vibration –Michael Faraday. In 1831, he performed an experiment with sand and water on a glass plate to gain insights into the effect of vibration on matter.

One of the first images revealed was in the shape of a star. (Readers can view the same phenomenon in The Soundflower Experience™ Three and also the short film entitled, “Rapture” available on this website.) Click here to see these offerings in our SHOP
