Buildings are ‘frozen’ music and shape your life

Sound is vibration and vibration is energy. Cymatics, the science of visualizing audio frequencies, proofs that vibrations have an impact on matter. According to Albert Einstein, every’thing’ is energy, so matter has also its own frequency and thus vibration. Geometry is the visible form of vibration. Therefore buildings (materials, colours, shape etc.) are in a way ‘frozen’ music. The German writer Johan Wolfgang von Goethe said it already round 1800 ‘I call Architecture frozen music’.  

In epigenetics they made some exciting discoveries. Epigenetics is a new field of biology that is unravelling the mysteries of how the environment (nature) influences the behaviour of cells without changing the genetic code, ‘the architectural blue print’. As our human body is made out of cells also the behaviour of us human beings is influenced by the (inner and outer) environment. Perception, awareness of the elements of the inner and outer environment through physical sensation, is the signal or switch that controls our body and behaviour. In fact perception or belief controls our life because it interprets the signals from the inner and outer environment.

Since our built environment is an integral part of the outer environment the quotation of Winston Churchill “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” gets a new and deeper meaning. 

With music we hear audio vibration. Architecture is not only visual vibration. When you go through a building it’s even more; it is as walking through the instrument itself as the instrument is being played. It’s like moving through a 3D-machine, a harmonically tuned consciousness resonating device.


Organisational DNA and Culture vs. Real Estate & Facilities

If the DNA and culture of an organisation are translated into a melody, which building symphony fits then? The ‘frozen’ music of buildings has a huge impact on the well-being and behaviour of people in a building. So be aware that we design our built environment as a music symphony, instead as a cacophony, in 3-dimensional stone! It’s all about spatial alchemy and how we people resonance with the (building)frequencies. Geometry is how vibrations (energy) become visible. #432Hz

Corporate Real Estate & Facility Management (CRE&FM) is in fact an alchemical process. It has the potential to let people go through a transformative experience by interacting and connecting in and with real estate. It can be compared to that elusive but decisive time in the alchemical process in which one metal changes in the other.

Have a look at the video and realise how much we people are also affected by vibrations. Matter has its own vibrations (frequencies) that affect people’s moods, intentions and behaviours……

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in energy,
frequency and vibration”. (Nikola Tesla)


Feelings on display vs. Human Capital

In the project Eunoia II (Beautiful thought) the artist Lisa Park puts her feelings on display. With biosensors and a brainwave sensor (EEG) headset she made the invisible energy of emotions visible. Lisa believes that what is inside our body, more than 60% of water, resonates with the vibrations/energy of our thoughts and feelings.
Besides that we are also affected by the energy vibrations of feelings of other human beings, and maybe even more than by the frequencies of the built environment we are in…

the more you become a lover of what it is.” (Baruch Spinoza)
