It is possible to put a tuning fork to a metal plate with iron filings on it, and the vibrations of the sound of the fork will move the filings into a shape. Different notes will create different patterns. Sound becomes form. It makes us wonder what our words do to each other. When we hear nails scratching a blackboard it bothers the nerves in our backs, irritating our senses. Something is being pushed around and moved within us for us to be able to feel something as the result of that sound.
This makes me hope that someday scientists will find a way to use sound to move the parts of cancer cells around so that they are destroyed. It would be so much less invasive than surgery, and less nauseating than chemotherapy. It also makes me wonder what affect music has on the physical body. Many of us have heard that plants will thrive when exposed to soft classical music, and wilt when exposed to heavy metal. I have never tried this experiment, but if any of you have send a comment below and tell us what you have observed.
If all of you is listening
You can embrace the sting from
And its sound
Will play upon
