The Orchestral Analogy

The Word is a sound, and a sound . . .

You might hear this from music lovers a lot … that there is an old saying ‘Music is Life’. Really amazing music has a way of resonating to the core of our Soul. It’s no surprise that music itself is often referred to as the Great Communicator. It has the proven ability to bring together diverse peoples, soothe the savage beast (carnal mind), or even do the opposite … create chaos and disorder. To ascribe any real definition with language falls short, however, because it is a language unto itself; such a language with an ability to express in us a myriad of feelings.

So for the purposes of this section, we’ll move a step beyond the typical short-answer definitions like ‘structured noise’ or ‘order out of chaos’, and approach a definition as follows. That of a vibration or vibrations which resonate, sound, and re-sound both rhythmically and sequentially throughout time space within the space time boundaries of observable creation.

The Master Conductor.

Picture our brain hemispheres like an orchestra, just about to begin the concerto. Who is it keeping the timing of all players in phase and synchronized? The role of the conductor, after all is to create conductivity.

In becoming more aware of our personal ‘orchestra’, we will find ourselves playing in time and in tune more often. Reinforcing our natural state of harmonic resonance because of the understanding there is ‘bio-feedback in the playback’.

To achieve a synchronized production, the players would have been practicing their parts daily to ensure that it will sound coherent. This is the concerto we all play, each and every day. I’ll leave it up to you to figure out who the Master Conductor really is.

Looking back at some of the watershed moments throughout history, one of them occurred in Woodstock, 1969. Three days of peace and music that marked a rite of passage for an entire generation, and one of the most well known ‘peace’ gatherings to occur in modern American history.

Over half a million people came together without a single fight, in spite of New York declaring a state of emergency. Even with the lack of food and water, people came together. There was an apparent coherence above and beyond the external incoherence of many in attendance.

Interestingly enough, you can uncover the principle of harmonic resonance here in the area of cross-cultural coincidences. Consider an echo chamber. If music is movement in time, then suffice it to say we might be able to see periods of historic resonance that repeat through time. After all, we often say history repeats, and to all life, there is a rhythm.

So if we were to investigate the original Woodstock 1969 concert event, we might start by investigating the historical imprints found within a general space-time locale. In this case we can find an imprint which resonates harmonically to the Iriquois Nation Confederacy a few hundred years earlier…

. . .

“Tradition credits the formation of the confederacy, between 1570 and 1600, to Dekanawidah, born a Huron, who is said to have persuaded Hiawatha, an Onondaga living among Mohawks, to abandon cannibalism and advance “peace, civil authority, righteousness, and the great law” as sanctions for confederation.”

. . .

What’s truly amazing is the connection of this peace treaty with the Tree of Peace that was planted. The story went …

. . .

The Great Tree of Peace [of the] Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy — Over a thousand years ago, the Peacemaker…Aiionwatha (Hiawatha) brought the Great Law of Peace (Kaianerekowa[6][7]) to the warring Indian nations of what is now New York State. The message of Peace, Power, and the Good Mind resulted in the forming of the Haudenosaunee Iroquois Confederacy.

. . .

Regardless of the cross-cultural coincidence of Woodstock not being very far from this historical location … Woodstock (technically Bethel, NY) in 1969 was a brief moment in time that became a ‘shining’ example of the coherence of mass consciousness. The very heartbeat of Mother Earth, a moment that came very close to displaying the power of the Hundredth Monkey Phenomenon. It’s power to effect both internal and external (social) change.

. . .

As above, so below; as within, so without.

In the broader sense, you have the power of music itself portraying the inherent recognition that all separateness is an illusion (Maya). That the sum, when observed together becomes greater than the individual parts with the amplified wave effect. It is the recognition of the Self trying to cohere itself together. Like trying to get ourselves back to the Garden.
