and the dimensions of music...
I'm not going to pretend to know squat about theoretical physics, but the subject of multiple dimensions and the relativity of time came up this evening in my dining room. There were burritos involved.
What's the frequency Kenneth?
Music is a series of vibrations and frequencies. Frequencies are vibrations. Every moment in time, and every action we take is like a pebble thrown in a pond with the reverberations flowing from that single point. The concentric vibrations move in all directions to infinity. Is it possible that each degree of the circle represents a different dimension or direction of time?
Dr. Michio Kaku speaks of other dimensions as a koi pond. Staring down at the fish swimming, graceful, and colorful, they live in a world only they understand. In their own dimension. But if you were to reach into that pond and lift a fish out, what has happened? That fish has left its world and is now in yours. If the fish had the ability to consider what has happened to it, what might it think? To the koi, it might think that it has been transported to a new dimension. And perhaps is has.
The discussion this evening brought all this up, but what intrigued me was the notion that music is more than entertainment. Creatures respond to music because it resonates on a molecular level. The vibrations affect and harmonize with the essence of everything and is felt more than it is heard. But what if these vibrations can be absorbed before they exist in linear time? How would you respond? Or since everything is vibrating and vibrations are frequencies, could sound cure cancer?
Then we finished our burritos. Carnitas mmm,.
