Cymatics and Biology

The science of cymatics tells us that vibrations, when reflected inside a container, reflect back upon themselves to create a stationary or standing wave. Depending on the shapes and size of the container, the medium inside the container, and other environmental influences, the standing wave will create a variety of two-dimensional and three-dimensional patterns.

One might ask what causes such containers to form? The answer is gravity caused by the displacement of space by matter. It is from the pressure of space itself pushing against a planet, atmosphere, water and other elements that a container is formed. And it is within this "body" that the building blocks of life are able to resonate into the standing wave we call a heartbeat.

As blood pumps through the body, each cell is entrained to its rhythm and dependent on its oxygen and nourishment. Like ripples in a pond, the container determines how this standing wave reflects to create the patterns of bones, organs and surface features. The striped pattern of a zebra, the spots of a leopard, and the shell pattern of a tortoise are all a result of cellular resonance inside a container.

Although atomic and cellular resonance has yet to be embraced as part of contemporary biology, evolutionary theory and cognitive science, it is inevitable that this physical process will find its place one day. Quantum physics tells us that everything resonates into material existence from energy, so it must be for the process of life.

It must have been from this understanding of resonance that ancient Vedic scholars deduced the standing wave organization of the human body known as the Wheels of Light or Seven Chakras. And it was from this realization that they fashioned great temples after the geometry of the human body - all with the singular purpose of tuning the mind into the spiritual realm.
