Harmony; The Strength and Support of All Institutions

This topic will require a series of posts. Today, we're going to post a couple videos and let the visuals speak for themselves.

I should preclude these videos with a tidbit about just what cymatics is. Cymatics is a branch of science created by an anthroposophist (which most people have put up in the shelves along side modern quackery). I don't know enough about it to make a judgement, but I have read the book on Cymatics, watched the demonstration videos and then made my own manual sounder to demonstrate the effects of sound on matter.

Frater Albertus, one of the most referenced alchemists of our time, said in his book The Alchemists Handbook, that Alchemy is about raising the vibrations. If you don't understand this, then it's time to go back to the drawing board and study until you do. Otherwise you won't accomplish much in the Great Art.

Cymatics is the study of the effects of sound on matter. In all things, we find the holy trinity - in religion we find the Father, the son and the holy ghost, (some pagan religions use Mother, Maiden and Crohn). Masonry references wisdom, strength and beauty. Alchemist philosophers used Sulpher, Mercury and Salt, which they sometimes referred to as the King, Queen and the Philosopher's Child. Robert Zoller called it Universal Intelligence, Universal Soul and Nature. A correspondent that I met in a user-defined forum helped me to define it in a more practical sense. She is actually the one who introduced me to Cymatics.

My dear reader, as you watch the videos, I ask that you keep in mind and contemplate the holy trinity of light, sound - and from the combination of these two things comes form.

Enjoy.

Notice that the higher the pitch, the more complex the design becomes.
