Was music an invention or a discovery?

See results

Music is one of the most remarkable, entertaining and most powerful things we know of.

Every single one of us would probably find it difficult to entertain the notion of a world without music.

Can you imagine what it would be like?

It would be very quiet...

and very boring!

Here's a conundrum for you to have a think about:

Was music an invention or a discovery? Vote in the column to the right to have your say.

Music has always been the largest part of many people's lives (especially mine).

After all, money doesn't make the world go round... music does!

I'm not a mug, music is my drug!

The possibilities of music are the same as the possibilities of dreams; an endless sea of infinite possibilities just like the universe. The actual science behind music, how it works and the effect it has on you may indeed shock you. After all, just like everything else that exists, music is a form of energy, frequency and vibration.

Mood & Emotion

Music is made up of selections of various notes, sounds, tones, octaves and keys all of which have a direct effect on your mood and emotion. Music in a major key tends to have a happy feel to it and makes you feel good whereas music in a minor key has a more sad feel to it which can make you feel emotional.

Of course, in many music tracks various keys are combined for various effects throughout. One music track can incorporate major, minor and other keys such as dimished keys, 7ths and many more all of which have different effects. For this reason, you often feel like a song or a music track is taking you on a journey.

There's no doubt about it, music definitely affects the way you feel and nobody can deny that fact. It's one of the reasons music is so popular.

Linguistics & Suggestion

Just as we know that musical instrumentation has an effect on our emotions, it's also true that words have power and that the pen is mighter than the sword. This is why fields such as hypnosis, NLP and psycholinguistics exist, all of which rely on the effects of language on the mind.

Whereas music has the ability to invoke an emotional state in us, words have the power to make us think of certain things. This also applies with negative suggestion. For example. if I told you to not think of a blue elephant you would have to think of a blue elephant in order to process that statement.

Because music has the ability to affect our emotional state and words have the ability to affect our thoughts, when combined with each other they become omnipotent. Not only does the actual music affect the way we feel but the lyrics to songs also make us think of certain things when we hear them which we then associate with that emotional state.

What does this mean?

It means that the songs we listen to have a direct effect on our lives whether we are aware of it or not. All of the reactions invoked in us by listening to songs happen on a subconscious level. This means that listening to happy songs most of the time can lead us into living happpier lives whereas listening to sad songs most of the time can cause into leading less happier lives.

This leads us on to the psychological phenomenon of synaesthesia.

Synaesthesia

Synaesthesia is a psychological phenomenon in which associations, or links, are created.

In NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), these associations are referred to as anchors.

Although everybody experiences synaesthesia to some degree, some people experience it more than others.

For example, some people (such as myself) may link certain colors with specific days of the week. In my case, Tuesday is red, Wednesday is green, Thursday is yellow.

Whenever that person thinks of that day or that day is mentioned to them, they automatically think of the color which they associated with that day of the week. Some people may also do this with numbers. Whilst synaesthesia is often referred to as a neurological condition, it is not a disease or a disorder and is actually extremely beneficial.

People who experience synaesthesia (known as synesthetes) actually have higher levels of intelligence and memory and are less likely to experience psychosis and delusions. It is not a mental illness but is actually a blessing.

What does this mean when it comes to music?

It means that the emotion invoked in you by the music you listen to combined with the thoughts invoked by the lyrical content of the songs you listen to creates an anchor. In other words, listening to a certain song may make you think of a certain event or memory. Whenever you hear that same song in the future, it always reminds you of that same memory or event - an association (anchor) has been created.

Vibration

The late great Dr Masaru Emoto was a Japanese researcher who carried out experiments into the effects of music, words, intention and prayer on the crystallization process of water molecules.

Dr Emoto discovered that various forms of energy, frequency and vibration (including words and music) have a direct effect on the formation of water crystals. His experiments showed that harmful, offensive and insuting words had a negative effect on the formation of water crystals whereas good, friendly and complimenting words had a positive effect on the formation of the water crystals.

Dr Emoto also carried out the experiments with prayer and intention and found that the same effect applied. So, what does this mean when it comes to music?

Well, seeing as music and words are also nothing more than energy, frequency and vibration just as everything is (as shown by quantum mechanics), it means that music and words also have a direct effect on the human body and mind.

Seeing as the human body is made up of mostly water (between 50%-75%), it makes sense that the effect of music, words, intention and prayer must also have an effect on the physical health and state of the human body. For this reason, Dr Emoto also came to the conclusion that music and songs are a form of energy which can help bring the world back into balance.

      "Dr Emoto discovered that various forms of energy, frequency and vibration (including words and music) have a direct effect on the formation of water crystals."

      Have the experiments of Dr. Emoto been verified, duplicated?

      I'm not aware of any "professionals" who have replicated his experiments but as always with these cases, the mainstream will do anything to debunk it.

      Considering that we already know from quantum mechanics that everything is just energy, frequency and vibration and that this has been proven multiple times, Emoto's experiments and results, to me, seem to be what you would expect purely out of basic logic and common sense.

      There are many other scientists and researchers who have done similar experiments but not with water who have come to pretty much the same conclusions but their experiments were not with water. All of them are debunked by the mainstream, some of them are mysteriously killed for speaking out, some try to get the word out through things like the Disclosure project and more.

      I'm pretty sure that Emoto's case is not at all difficult to prove. Others with similar experiments and results I could name are Wilhelm Reich, Royal Raymond Rife, Nikola Tesla, Eugene Mallove, Marcel Vogel, Stanley Meyer and even Albert Einstein himself touched upon the topic himself several times.

      We already know from quantum physics that the energy, frequency and vibration of one thing directly affects the energy, frequency and vibration of another.

      Sparkster....BRAVO!! standing ovation! This is an utterly fascinating work of art. I simply love it! I will go one step further and suggest it may be my favorite read in many months.

      I thank you for such an enjoyable & enlightening education on music. Every word makes sense and stands to reason, with proof easily realized within our own minds, hearts and soul.

      The undeniable fact that you are a phenomenal writer, adds to the impact of your article. This is one of those articles I know I will return to read again and again.

      Once again, Bravo! I appreciate your talent. Peace, Paula

      Good article! I like music and have started submitting lyrics in few companies. Music is therapeutic. Yes the world would be really very dull without music from humans and birds. I often gets taken in higher realm and connect to higher form of self. I can not even explain what it does, but surely it add value to life.

      Great comment, especially the reference to birds. I often listen to the birds chirping away and sometimes feel as though I can understand them, as bizarre as that they may seem. I'd be interested to know what companies you submit your lyrics to?

      Thank you for that word of encouragement. It means so much to me because I am looking for the mentor.Sometime we are influenced by the environment not to follow our hearts. My husband used to say "I don't understand the song but I see what it means on your face..." It is because music invoke deeper emotions and merge the physical and the spiritual self.

      I have submitted to Elite Records International and the Paramount Song.

      Thank you Paula and for the great compliments! It means a lot. I'm glad you found it so enjoyable and interesting. To be honest there was a lot more I wanted to include in this article but it would have gone on forever if I had. Maybe I'll add some links to relevant information.
