Response to Amos’ Article Vibrations, Noise and the Human Experience
1. noise pollution as a means of desensitizing people and making them into creatures of habit
2. The idea of creating a universe by uttering certain sounds.
Amos’ treatment of sound is poetic, anecdotal and compelling. It is his personal relationship with the world around him, as a highly sensitive instrument of information processing. There are a few things that i would like to add or clarify in regard to his work The following are notes of further inquiry into this idea of sound pollution as an attack on higher states of consciousness or the acquisition or creation thereof.
It is interesting that no one seriously investigates the idea that the sounds around them affect one’s sensitivity to the world around them. People taking life at face value, might think it’s normal to behave in a certain manner i.e. performing the functions of daily life in methodical and almost robotic manners. It seems that the body is literally left to function at the utmost basic level as a result of having to filter out massive amounts of junk-noise.
If it is true that everything is information, then it stands to reason that information cannot be processed properly, if, as Amos states, our sensory receptors are being overloaded. We won’t even touch upon the concept that All of our being is a receptor—that is that every cell in our body is an agent at receiving messages and that they too are overloaded by the influx of junk-information and/or noise.
The idea then is that if the body must spend all of its energy just to decipher what information coming in is actually pertinent to its survival then perhaps, the self is crippled into a state of dismal simplicity in action and thought.
On a similar thought, the idea that a universe can be created by sound seems concordant with this understanding of noise/information. The idea that the type of sound that is being emitted then creates a state of affairs seems logical. Though, admittedly, i am no scientist. I can see that essentially the flow of all things can be orchestrated by the sounds i.e. energetic situation at hand. Therefore, when there is an overloaded energetic situation, which one might term as “chaos” i.e. a state in which information is literally flooding into a place without any sense of order, information cannot be properly received. And to take that a step further, this might be the ONLY fundamental cause of cancer. After all, cancer is the disruption of the functions of DNA to put it simplistically. Our bodies are literally information processing machines and, redundantly, if information exceeds the processing capacity of the machine, what you have is meltdown—that is precisely what we see before us in our current state of affairs in the Modern world.
The fact that the implications of vibrations of any kind have on All things, for our conversation, namely the cells in our body and that the cells in our body are packed mostly with water and that water can bear memory imprints based on environmental input is daunting in relation to the idea that there are myriad sounds around us at any given point and that they are formed by unnatural processes. Now that is a mouthful and a beautiful run-on sentence. But really, put that in your pipe and suck on that for a while. Is there empirical evidence behind water having memory? That is research you can do yourself.
When one is deeply connected to one’s self they don’t need the data, all they need to do is remember back to a time when someone uttered the words “i love you” and think back to how that ran through your body and then think to another time when someone was using obscenities in your presence or, better yet, when someone you knew didn’t like you was in your presence and you got that “feeling.” That’s all that you need. It is real, what you feel IS real. Why do people feel good at the beach or in nature? Why are cities reportedly areas where people have “bad attitudes”? Again you don’t have to be a scientist to SEE-FEEL these things. Of course it would be great to be able to quantify, for argument’s sake but i’ll save that for more ego-driven minds.
Overall, we need to remember that everything is meaningful, not in these woo woo sense of the term “meaningful” but rather just in the purely informational sense. The body treats everything as though it is meaningful. If files certain things away in “important folder” leaves other things for further inspection in the “inbox” (dream folder) and files a lot in the “spam” box.
