Those of us raised within European-American culture are quick to chuckle at a practice common within what we call ‘more primitive societies,’ in which the shaman or healer beats on a drum, shakes a rattle or chants a song of healing. How silly: medicine in mere sound waves.
And now in American hospitals, harps and low-toned flutes have emerged. Soothed with music, the wounded and sick heal measurably quicker, while the dying pass more serenely. Science has rediscovered an ancient wisdom: Matter and energy are manifestations of a single reality within the multiverse, therefore our so-called material bodies respond to both.
