Ancient civilizations used acoustics to change consciousness and communicate with the dead

The prehistoric necropolis in Malta provides the key to the ancient use of sound and its effect on the activity of the human brain, and it shows that ancient civilizations used acoustics to change consciousness and communicate with the dead.

It is well known that ancient civilizations associated a particular sound with sacred knowledge. They isolated these hypersonic places from worldly everyday life and attached great importance to them because abnormal sound behavior implied a divine presence.

This is especially true for Mayans and the Aztecs, as evidenced by the chirping noise of the Kukulkan pyramid in Chichen Itza and the terrifying Aztec death whistle found on the skeleton of a sacrificial person found in front of the temple of their god of the wind.

Another example of how ancient civilizations used sound to change consciousness and communicate with the dead is the Maltese Hypogee Al-Saflini.

Al-Saflini and its mysterious sound phenomenon is located in the city of Paola, Malta. The Neolithic underground structure dates from the Saflini period (3300 – 3000 BC). It is believed that it was a sanctuary and a necropolis, as archaeologists have discovered more than 7,000 skeletons.

One of its rooms, known as the “Oracle Room”, has a legendary reputation for exceptional sound behavior. 

The room is a sound chamber carved with a rounded inner surface. The result is an echo, which is reflected throughout the hypogee.

Standing in Hypogeea is like being inside a giant bell. In certain places, a person feels how the sound vibrates in the bones and tissues, and also hears it in the ears.

The word spoken in the Oracle room is amplified a hundredfold and is heard throughout the building.

Now imagine how the oracle spoke, and his words rumbled with a roar through a dark and mysterious place with a terrifying impression.

So what happens in the oracle room?

A male voice casting spells in the range of 70-130 Hz could turn the entire temple complex into a trance inducing room that could stimulate the creative center of the human brain.

At these resonant frequencies, even small periodic motive forces can produce large-amplitude oscillations, since the system stores the oscillation energy.

The echo bounces off solid surfaces and connects before they disappear.

This highly effective acoustic technology allowed ancient people to change the consciousness of both the physiological and psychological behavior of those exposed to it.

How and why did ancient people use sound?

An international team of scientists recently uncovered the ancient mystery of the Oracle Room in the Maltese Hypogee Hal Saflieni.

As demonstrated in a new scientific study, each person has his own individual activation frequency, always between 90 and 120 Hz.

During testing, a deep male voice tuned to these frequencies stimulated a resonant phenomenon throughout the hypochondrium, creating the effect of cooling the bones.

Sounds were reported to echo for 8 seconds.

Archaeologist Fernando Coimbra said he felt a sound cross his body at high speed, leaving him feeling relaxed. When this was repeated, the sensation returned, and he also had the illusion that the sound reflected from his body to the ancient red-ocher paintings on the walls.

One can only imagine this experience in antiquity: standing in the dark and listening to ritual singing, while faint light flickered on the bones of deceased loved ones.

The same people also developed a complete solar calendar aligning the solstices and equinoxes, which still function today in one of the terrestrial megalithic structures.

There is no doubt that a complex school of architectural, astronomical and audiological knowledge existed already a thousand years before the Egyptians began to build the pyramids.

People in the Neolithic past in Malta discovered the acoustic effects of Hypogeea and experienced them as extraordinary, strange, perhaps even strange and “otherworldly”. Maybe they tried to talk with our alien brothers?

Can the Universe consciously imitate its own existence?

According to the new hypothesis, the Universe imitates its own existence in a “strange loop”. In an article published by scientists from the Institute for the Study of Quantum Gravity, it is argued that the basis of the hypothesis is the theory of panpsychism, according to which everything in nature is animated. 

The article was published in the journal Entropy and, as the authors of the work write, is designed to combine understanding of quantum mechanics with a non-materialist point of view. In other words, scientists want to understand how real we are and everything that surrounds us. Agree, this is at least an interesting question for modern science and our understanding of the Universe.

What is reality?

How real is reality? What if all that you are, all that you know, all the people in your life, as well as all events do not physically exist in reality, but are a very complex simulation? Like in the series of the animated series “Rick and Morty” when one of the characters got into a simulation and did not even notice it. Our regular readers know that the philosopher Nick Bostrom addressed this issue in the foundational article “Do we live in computer simulation?”, Which suggests that our entire existence may be the product of very complex computer models (simulations) controlled by advanced creatures whose the true nature we may never know.

I am not a supporter of this idea, but despite all the seeming madness of Bostrom’s assumption, we really don’t know what reality is. Modern science is not yet able to cognize the quantum world and understand, for example, why at the atomic level particles change their behavior when they are watched. At a time when physicists are working on building a mission that can figure out if a parallel universe or universes exists, Bostrom’s idea does not look extraordinary.

But the new theory takes a step forward – what if there are no advanced creatures, but everything in “reality” is self-imitation that generates itself from “pure thought?”

Frame from the series Rick and Morty. The moment Jerry found out that all this time he lived in a simulation

The Physical Universe is a “strange loop”, writes Quantum Gravity Research, a Los Angeles-based Institute for Theoretical Physics, founded by scientist and entrepreneur Clay Irwin. The work is based on the Bostrom modeling hypothesis, according to which all reality is an extremely detailed computer program – and they ask: instead of relying on advanced life forms to create the technology necessary to create everything in our world, is it not better to assume that the Universe itself is a “mental imitation of oneself”? Scientists associate this idea with quantum mechanics, considering the universe as one of many possible models of quantum gravity.

One important aspect that distinguishes this point of view from others similar to it is related to the fact that the initial hypothesis of Bostrom is materialistic and considers the Universe as physical. For Bostrom, we could just be part of an ancestral simulation created by posthumans. Even the process of evolution itself can simply be a mechanism by which future beings experience countless processes, purposefully moving people through levels of biological and technological growth. In this way, they generate the alleged information or history of our world. Ultimately, we will not notice the difference.

But where does physical reality come from that would spawn a simulation? Their hypothesis takes a non-materialistic approach, arguing that everything in the universe is information expressed in the form of thought. Thus, the Universe “self-realizes” into its own existence, relying on the underlying algorithms and the rule that researchers call the “principle of an effective language”. According to this proposal, the simulation of everything is only one “great thought”.

How could a simulation have arisen on its own?

Surprisingly, the answer is simple: she was always there, researchers say, explaining the concept of “timeless emergentism”. This idea says that there is no time at all. Instead, there is a comprehensive thought, which is our reality, offering a built-in semblance of a hierarchical order, full of “sub-thoughts” that extend down to the wormhole to basic mathematics and fundamental particles. The effective language rule also comes into force, which assumes that people themselves are such “emergent sub-thoughts” and experience and find meaning in the world through other sub-thoughts (called “code steps or actions”) in the most economical way (well, then) .

We do not know much, which means we must consider all hypotheses without exception

In correspondence with Big Think, physicist David Chester said:

Although many scholars advocate the truth of materialism, we believe that quantum mechanics can give a hint that our reality is a mental construct. Recent advances in quantum gravity, such as the vision of spacetime arising from a hologram, are also a hint that spacetime is not fundamental. In a sense, the mental construction of reality creates space-time to effectively understand itself, creating a network of subconscious entities that can interact and explore the totality of their capabilities.

Scientists associate their hypothesis with panpsychism, which considers everything that exists as thought or consciousness, the purpose of which is to generate meaning or information. If all this is difficult to understand, the authors offer another interesting idea that can connect your everyday experience with these philosophical considerations. Think of your dreams as your own personal simulations, the team suggests. Although they are fairly primitive (by the superintelligent standards of the future AI), dreams tend to provide better resolution than modern computer modeling and are a great example of the evolution of the human mind.

Of course, not everyone will like it, but the Universe can really have consciousness. 
At least we cannot rule it out.

Most notable is the ultra-high resolution accuracy of these mind-based simulations and the accuracy of the physics in them. They point to lucid dreaming – when the dreamer realizes that he is in a dream – as examples of very accurate simulations created by your mind that at times cannot be distinguished from any other reality. So how do you know, while you are reading this article, that you are not in a dream? It turns out that it is not so difficult to imagine that the extremely powerful computer that we can create in the near future will be able to reproduce a similar level of detail.

Of course, some of the ideas of Clay and his team in the academic community are called controversial. But the authors of the work believe that “we should think critically about consciousness and some aspects of philosophy that are inconvenient for some scientists.” We can not agree, because in science there are no or, should be no authorities.

The journalist predicted a cancer-free future and was healed

ABC11 American journalist Michael Perchick predicted on his Twitter account that his future would not be related to cancer. The reporter later reported healing, and the post scored 1.8 million likes.

A 28-year-old North Carolina channel correspondent said in January that he was diagnosed with cancer. However, the journalist did not somehow comment on the current state, but wrote about the future. 

“In four months, I will be the 28-year-old who defeated cancer. To the battle! ” – Perchik noted.

Many users supported his entry with comments with words of support. Some users remembered how they themselves fought with a similar diagnosis and they managed to prevail over a deadly disease. 

“I was diagnosed at the same age, two days after my 28th birthday. I’m 34 now. You will succeed, man. Kick your ass cancer,” Humphrey03Pat wrote .

In April, Perchik announced that he had completed the necessary course of chemotherapy. 

On June 5, he retweeted his January post and wrote:

“New information about my life: I was right.” 

This meant that the journalist was cured. In the comments, he met positive feedback from users. Some responded with a meme about dancing coffin carriers from Ghana, symbolizing a cancer funeral.

Death Angel Drummer talks about meeting with Satan during a coronavirus coma

Will Carroll, a member of the Philippine-American thrash metal band Death Angel, spoke about a meeting with Satan during a coronavirus coma. It is reported by the San Francisco Chronicle.

The 47-year-old drummer is sure he has been to hell. He fell ill with COVID-19 after a European tour of the band and was in critical condition for two weeks at a California medical center. Carroll was connected to a ventilator and was in a coma.

According to a member of the group, in nightmares, he appeared to have Satan in a female guise, who reproached him for being lazy and turned him into a monster resembling Jabba from Star Wars. After that, the drummer decided to abandon the use of strong alcohol and marijuana.

“I will still listen to satanic metal, and I still love Deicide and similar bands. As for my personal life and what I experienced, I don’t think that Satan is so cool” Carroll said. 

He explained that he was close to death, but now he feels as if he was born again.
