Consciousness is somehow a by-product of the simultaneous, high-frequency firing of neurons in different parts of the brain. It’s the meshing of these frequencies that generates consciousness, just as tones from individual instruments produce the rich, complex, and seamless sounds of a symphony orchestra.”
– Francis Crick, Co-Discoverer of DNA
Music is the mediator between the life of senses and the life of spirit.”

I believe that from the earth emerges a musical poetry which is by the nature of its source tonal. I believe that these sources cause to exist a phonology of music, which evolves from the universal known as the harmonic series. And that there is an equally universal musical syntax which can be codified and structured in terms of symmetry and repetition.”
– Leonard Bernstein
In the microcosmic universe of the body of man, the Aum vibrations works trough the vital activities in the astral spinal centers of life with their creative vibratory elements (tattvas) of earth, water, fire, air, and ether. Through these, mans body is created, enlivened, and sustained. These vibrations emit characteristic vibrations of Pranava as they operate. The devotee whose consciousness becomes attuned to these inner astral sounds finds himself gradually ascending to higher states of realization.
– Paramahansa Yogananda, The Yoga of the Bhagavad Gita
Music should be healing, music should uplift the soul, music should inspire; then there is no better way of getting closer to God, of rising higher towards the spirit, of attaining spiritual perfection, than music, if only it is rightly understood.”
– The Sufi Hazrat Kahn
