The Universe as a Harmonious Field of Vibration – Is Humanity out of Tune?


This paper begins with a reference to recent experimental research in the school of Engineering at MIT on the novel coronavirus (SARS-Cov-2). This research consists in translating into sound the spike protein of the virus which makes it so contagious, in order to examine its vibrational properties and find ways to destroy it. After brief references to similar research in the past which explored therapeutic resonant frequencies for common human pathogens, recent endeavors at reprogramming DNA by certain sonic frequencies, or simply attempts to translate the information coded in our DNA into music, this paper touches upon descriptions of the universe in various spiritual and philosophical traditions as a cosmic harmonious vibration. Based on this concept, certain aspects of human behavior (tentatively translated as various vibrational frequencies) seem to be "out of tune". Deviation from the cosmic harmonious vibration creates disharmony and gradual distancing and alienation from what these traditions call the "divine source" or the "universal consciousness". In humans, the incessant stream of ego-centric thoughts and the feelings and actions ensuing from them is the reason for this alienation. A common theme in philosophical and spiritual practices is slowing down the constant stream of thinking and ultimately reaching cessation of thoughts as the means of attaining peace and union with one’s "inner source" which is the source of all creation. The paper concludes by exploring the possibility that our survival may depend on adjusting our vibration so that we tune into what has been described as "universal consciousness" or as Plotinus calls it "the universal Soul".
