A Brief History of Cymatics
Cymatics stands for wave, or the study of wave phenomena through visual representation. Galileo Galilei was among the first to experiment with cymatics around the year of 1630. However it wasn’t until later that the term “cymatics” would be created by a Swiss gentleman with the name of Hans Jenny.
If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. Nikola Tesla
What is Cymatics and How Does it Work?
Cymatics is the visual representation of sound vibrations. Most often, fine sand particles or a liquid is placed upon a vibrating surface. The surface is then tuned to different frequqncies causing the sand / liquid to form different shapes based upon the specific frequqncy of vibration. When the frequency of vibration is shifted to a different range, the sand or liquid responds by forming the coresponding shape asociated with a specific sound frequency being played. The act of bringing matter to life visually… This is known as cymatics.
Divine sound is the cause of all manifestation. The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe. Hazrat Inayat Khan
Cymatics, What Does it All Mean?
Through the use of cymatics we are able to see certain patterns appear on the vibrating plate that are commonly see all around us on a daily basis. From the shape of microscopic cells and organisms, to the design of human anatomy, even certain species of animals and aquatic life. All the way up to planets, stars, solar systems, galaxies, the universe and more. There is a deep connection to matter and the vibration it accompanies.
The implications here are quiet astounding. With the visual representation of sound waves through the use of cymatics one can speculate that much more is going on that we are capable of experiencing with our five senses, specifically sight and sound. Could it be that this reality that we find ourselves engrossed in is just a specific frequency range? Could it be that there are other, possibly countless realities or “ranges of frequency” that exist just outside of our reality or frequency range?
These are some truly powerful ideas to consider, but I’ve said enough for now. I would love to hear your ideas on these matters. Feel free to spark the conversation and share your ideas below. As always, all the best to you and yours.
