Science: Used Vibrational Patterns To Develop Writing

Another magical mystery
to contemplate with

The DNA and RNA molecules of
chromosomes resonate in
an octave tone

In a musical dance of cells and
atoms, molecules and energy fields
swirling to the rhythmic beat

Of the sound waves - nature dancing
to sound and music - Ernest Chladni
sprinkled sand on steel disks

While a violin played, the vibrations
formed beautiful symmetrical patterns
in the sand

Hans Jenny devised a tonoscope,
an oscillator vibrating a metal plate
placed on top of it

Containing various things which produced
different patterns: Paste formed pictures of
early cell-division

Other substances formed nautilus shells
and honeycombs; powder formed into
the eye – the pupil and iris

Chanting the ancient mantra AUM
through a microphone vibrating
the metal plate, produced

A perfect circle containing concentric
squares and triangles, identical to
the geometric symbol

Used in the East to represent AUM,
thus ancient symbols are based on
vibrational patterns

Pronouncing vowels of ancient Sanskrit
and Hebrew produced the shape of their
written symbols in sand…

The ancient people used vibrational
patterns to develop writing and
language, it seems!

And I’m intrigued…
