The mysteries of the Universe, Ancient Civilisations, scripture, antiquity, myth, legend and the meaning of life sparks the imagination and ignites a quest for truth and knowledge.
The seekers of innovation and wisdom through the Ages, the guardians of secrets, the inventors, the protectors of the light and explorers of the mystical are somehow united by a sense of great purpose and intuitive guidance to help the world evolve in some way.
The notion that the secret keys to our future are veiled in the past is a gift like no other, perhaps why being in the moment is called the present.
Perhaps the present is the imperative dimension of super-human consciousness where all that was and all that will be, is all that is and all that is, is simply love.
Scientists will tell you that everything is energy. Our thoughts are one of the most potent forces of energy, maybe the most potent, influencing the inner and outer worlds in which we think we exist.
Thoughts, like all energy, can be positive or negative, creative and destructive and the choice is ours to make and make believe. The inner-world of the mind and body is one of chemistry, physiology, neurology, emotional synthesis and symbiosis.
These are the collective energies which define us, shaping our engagement of experience, knowledge and evolution in the journeys we call love and life, our love of life and our life of love.
The outer world is the reflection of the inner-self and is made manifest by the structure and sub-structure of thought which takes imagination and juxtaposes it into a reality of significance either good, bad or indifferent.
In emotional energy terms this is our positive, negative and neutral. What we think creates a chemistry of being inside the body which attracts its mirror twin vibration in our exterior reality. Quite simply, if you smile at someone they smile back.
If you shout at someone, they shout back, these are examples of inner energy attracting action and reaction in the outside world.
This is all based on the subconscious vibrational stimuli that brings thought into conscious being through language, our interpretation of the language we use and receive and how our words give transfiguration and animation to all that is the present moment.
Journeying for a moment into the past, to 1885, Margaret Watts-Hughes made an important discovery about the vibration of language.
Margaret gave up her passion for singing when she married and swapped her Welsh Soprano for philanthropy and scientific research.
Back in her day, women were not encouraged to seek their place in the world which makes her achievements ever more inspirational. Margaret was as creator, an innovator and maybe one of the guardians of the secrets of knowledge.
Margaret invented something she called the ‘eidophone’, a simple device which visibly animated sound.
The eidophone was a small drum-like hollow container no bigger than a small plant pot whose top was covered with a thin rubber-sheet membrane upon which was placed sand or lycopodium powder, sometimes a combination of both.
Into the body of the drum was inserted a small pipe-looking tube through which Margaret sang different notes of musical pitch.
In response to each pitch, the substance atop the drum vibrated and was formed into different shapes. After a period of initial research, liquid was added to the sand and this animated sound into real-time visible vibration.
Different tones and pitches formed different shapes and perhaps for the first time in modern history scientific association between vibration and language was actualised into visible reality.
Margaret drew pictures of the shapes formed by her voice and astonishingly they ranged from bacterial-looking images, to fossilised ammonites, to perfectly recognisable types of flowers, such as pansy and forget-me-not, and to tree-like structures with roots and landscape.
These astonishing pictures can be found on the internet today. In the twentieth century, scientific research has since found that particular words spoken into an eidophone form images directly related to the actual word itself.
For example, speaking the word snowflake creates a crystallised image of a perfectly symmetrical snow flake and the word butterfly creates the image of a beautiful butterfly on top of the drum.
In a newspaper article, Margaret Watts-Hughes was quoted as saying…
