Life Rhythm as a Symphony of Oscillatory Patterns: Electromagnetic Energy and Sound Vibration Modulates gene Expression for Biological Signaling and Healing David Muehsam, PhD, Italy; Carlo Ventura, MD, PhD, Italy
All life exists within a sea of vibration, and rhythm is fundamental to all of life. Diurnal, season- al, lunar, and solar cycles, and the resonant electro- magnetic field (EMF) oscillations of our planet make up the symphony of rhythms in which life on Earth exists. As life evolved amidst these natural rhythms, they were integrated into many basic human biologi- cal responses, which coincide with diurnal and sea- sonal cycles1 and the many aspects of human and animal behavior and physiology that are correlated with the phases of the moon.2 From the basic activi- ties of daily life to our relationship with the animals on Earth,3 human society is structured around the moon’s rhythm, and deeply rooted monthly circadian rhythms govern human sleep patterns, persisting even in isolation from our conscious awareness of the lunar phase.4 Our lives contain a seeming infinity of rhythms, with vibrations at the atomic and molecular levels and within biochemical reaction rates. The physiological correlates of the rhythms of the breath, heartbeat, and brain have been extensively studied and shown to be intimately related to our emotions, thoughts, and psychospiritual state. For example, respiratory output is coupled to a complex interac- tion between the brainstem and higher centers con- necting the limbic system and cortical structures, thus creating a basic link between breathing and the emotions.5 A substantial body of research has demon- strated the fundamental interconnectedness of mind and emotion, brain and heart rhythms,6 variations in circadian heart rhythms have been shown to corre- late with psychiatric disorders,7 an emerging lan- guage for interpreting brainwave electroencephalo- gram (EEG) rhythms is now allowing a deeper under- standing of the relationships between EEG rhythms, cognition and neuropsychiatric disease,8 and pulsa- tile dynamics in genetic circuits is essential for the temporal organization of cellular stress response, signaling, and development.9 The thread that con- nects these various studies is the impact of rhythm and the notion that rhythms can communicate bio- information that governs a wide variety of functions, including that of guiding living beings towards health and well-being.
Rhythm is the fundamental characteristic of music. In frequencies, timbres, and the passage of
beats through time to form rhythms, music is an apt metaphor for this carrier of life-information. And the notion that music can touch the core of our being and is as old as human consciousness. Plato grappled with the powers of music in The Republic, stating that the various Greek modes convey specific qualities: “Then beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity—I mean the true sim- plicity of a rightly and nobly ordered mind and char- acter.”10 And though Shakespeare has been famously quoted as referring to music as the “food of love,” he went much further, writing that music has the power to create: “Orpheus with his lute made trees, And the mountain tops that freeze, Bow themselves, when he did sing,” and the power to destroy life: “In sweet music is such art, Killing care and grief of heart, Fall asleep, or hearing, die.”11
Music has been shown to modulate several car- diac and neurological functions and to trigger mea- surable stress-reducing pathways,12 to modulate blood pressure, heart rate, respiration, EEG measure- ments, body temperature and galvanic skin response; alter immune and endocrine function; and amelio- rate pain, anxiety, nausea, fatigue, and depression.13 Significant correspondence has been found between specific musical tones played to the skin through speakers and traditional Chinese descriptions musi- cal tones associated with the acupuncture meridi- ans.14 The notion that one “hears” sounds not only through the ears but rather through the whole body is echoed in the words of the Sufi musician, healer and mystic, Hazrat Inayat Khan:
A person does not hear sound only through the ears; he hears sound through every pore of his body. It permeates the entire being, and accord- ing to its particular influence either slows or quickens the rhythm of the blood circulation; it either wakens or soothes the nervous system. It arouses a person to greater passions or it calms him by bringing him peace. According to the sound and its influence a certain effect is pro- duced. Sound becomes visible in the form of radi- ance. This shows that the same energy which goes into the form of sound before being visible is absorbed by the physical body. In that way the physical body recuperates and becomes charged with new magnetism.15
