Greetings to all who share the wisdom of feng shui!
The soundscape of human beings has changed dramatically over the years and is about to change even more. Apple has purchased the Web music service called Lala and may thus be pointing the way to the future of music. Done are the days of owning LPs, tapes, CDs and sound systems. Music will be streaming from cyberspace as the earthly version of music from the spheres. This will be in the form of cloud music services that one can subscribe to. There will also be a new network of sharing music and play lists with friends. We may no longer need our storage devices and thus create all kinds of clutter free space.
This is a major paradigm shift in our auditory experience if not an invasion from cyberspace. In balancing what we experience in our surroundings, we need the yin of silence as much as the yang of noise. Instead of being wired and WiFi’d, we could listen to the sounds of nature, or at least those we consider endemic to our environment. Will song birds, ocean waves and crunchy snow become second to the streaming “anytime, anywhere media” from the clouds?
Sound, together with noise and auditory sensitivity are more than entertainment for the human ear. It is the first and primary connection humans have to the physical world as the fetus develops in a plethora of noises. Hearing is a 360 degree experience and serves as an early warming system since it is the fastest of human senses.
An experiment in Ohio schools revealed that providing classrooms with surround sound speaker systems dramatically improved the grade averages of pupils sitting in the back row. They suddenly heard a clearer version of what the teacher said.
What we hear influences our psyche as well as our physiological responses. Don Campbell, in his best-selling book The Mozart Effect, writes about the biological influence of music on our breathing rate, heart beat and pulse rate. Music and sounds can also change one’s perception of space.
In the complexity of modern life with increased exposure to external stimuli, feng shui provides helpful tools for controlling the Hulu’s and Lala’s of advanced technology. With the help of feng shui tools, you can adjust the personality of your space by balancing yin and yang, the elements and qi.
