Accoustic levitation.

I believe that the ancients used this aswell. Vibrations, frequencies etc.

This is about the ancient tibeten acoustic levitaion methids

In the middle of the meadow. about 250 metres from the cliff, was a polished slab of rock with a bowl like cavity in the center. The bowl had a diameter of one metre and a depth of 15 centimeters. A block of stone was maneuvered into this cavity by Yak oxen. The block was one metre wide and one and one-half metres long. Then 19 musical instruments were set in an arc of 90 degrees at a distance of 63 metres from the stone slab. The radius of 63 metres was measured out accurately. The musical instruments consisted of 13 drums and six trumpets. (Ragdons).

Behind each instrument was a row of monks. When the stone was in position the monk behind the small drum gave a signal to start the concert. The small drum had a very sharp sound, and could be heard even with the other instruments making a terrible din. All the monks were singing and chanting a prayer, slowly increasing the tempo of this unbelievable noise. During the first four minutes nothing happened, then as the speed of the drumming, and the noise increased, the big stone block started to rock and sway, and suddenly it took off into the air with an increasing speed in the direction of the platform in front of the cave hole 250 metres high. After three minutes of ascent it landed on the platform.

Continuously they brought new blocks to the meadow, and the monks using this method, transported 5 to 6 blocks per hour on a parabolic flight track approximately 500 metres long and 250 metres high. From time to time a stone split, and the monks moved the split stones away. Quite an unbelievable task. Dr Jarl knew about the hurling of the stones. Tibetan experts like Linaver, Spalding and Huc had spoken about it, but they had never seen it. So Dr Jarl was the first foreigner who had the opportunity to see this remarkable spectacle. Because he had the opinion in the beginning that he was the victim of mass-psychosis he made two films of the incident. The films showed exactly the same things that he had witnessed.

Thanks guys

It's been a while since I posted here.. it seems that there is a subtle connection between sound and consciousness (sounds of the spirits, rhythm of the universe) looking at Cymatics and Hado it's interesting how sound(frequency, vibration) constructs geometric patterns and shapes out of sand and ice...

with all this new vibratory technology it seems that we may only be just starting to understand why sound is important... but looking into the past we see evidence of an understanding of this...

To construct monuments or speak to the spirits I feel certain resonances were more than just the beating of a drum but a sophisticated technology...

the Hindus outline their idea of the Nada or 'Unstruck Sound'. This unstruck sound is a fundamental layer of reality which underlies the physical plane which we perceive as matter or, as they call it, 'Struck Sound'. The recent scientific theory of superstrings appears to say the same thing.

Researchers have suggested that sound may even be integral to their design and purpose.

Sound is the source of all manifestation...the knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe (Hazrat Inayat Khan)

just imagine our most amazing structures tuned in to the stars the moon and the sun its just incredible.

. SOHO has detected more than 10 million separate notes, each of which has a unique path through the sun.

could this of be a source of free energy? the possibilities are endless.

you have stumbled across a great secret that is being uncovered as we speak.

I believe the unstruck sound that is the fundamental layer,,,,
is the resonant frequency of 432hz.. the neutral center of our universe.

Ancient standing stones and pyramids do utilize resonance.

these note/pathways to the sun are like strings on a piano...

here is an extensive look at frequencies and resonance
and some mind blowing info on 432hz

edit...oops almost forgot to say great post
Starred and flagged.

Look up Coral Castle.
Leedskalnin supposedly used sound levitation in building EVERY stone of it.
O.K., here's another one

Supposedly he magnetized the stones and then 'sang' to them.

In the beginning the Bible says that God Spoke the world into existence.

"In obedience to the law,
the word of the Master grew into flower."

sacred geometry, flower of life? energy distribution?

"Before the WORD of GOD, was the THOUGHT of GOD"

THOUGHT being an Energy field, controlling the WORD (or harmonics) of GOD?

Yes I know of Ed Leedskalnin, the contraption he built was left with evidence of a transistor radio as one of it's components.. also ley lines and magnetic current connections..

"I have discovered the secrets of the pyramids, and have found out how the Egyptians and the ancient builders in Peru, Yucatan, and Asia, with only primitive tools, raised and set in place blocks of stone weighing many tons!" - Edward Leedskalnin

In the beginning the Bible says that God Spoke the world into existence.

the Bible as well as the Veda describe the creation of the universe in the same way.

The bible states at John-1 :

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God,..

According to the Atharva Veda, Brahma formed the universe from vibrations. This is the basis for the ancient Hindu word,

Nada-Brahma == sound, the Creator God

In the bible the word "word" is translated from the Greek word "λόγος" or Logos.

This ancient Greek word has two meanings:

Logos == Thought & Word

Just as in the bible (John-1) the word Word was mentioned as the origin, in Hinduism - before the beginning - the Brahman was one and non-dual. It Thought, "I am only one , may I become many." This caused a vibration which eventually became sound, and this sound was Om...

A quoted look at the process of Creation:

"1. At first only the non-material "Thought" existed
2. This "Thought" was with God, or because its omnipotentness, was God.
Out of this "Thought" developed the "Sound"
3. This Sound was nothing else than the selfreference of the Thought,
a vibration,that created Space, its energetic equivalent Time and Light.
4. Now the Thought trough the material Wor(l)d and Time manifested
itself - as a kind of sound - as a Word. Which in facts means that
the Sound created a meaning, a message, a destiny.
From these meaningful vibration patterns of the Word developed
the Shape of things and thereby the implicit corresponding "Laws" of
this universe we are living in.
5. Now the last part in the process of creation took place. Life was created.
The Thought manifested itself upon the Shape and "blew"
(another way of vibration, the material manifestation of the Thought
in the material world) Life (Consciousness) into the Shape (body).
The Consciousness now created is in fact equivalent to the Thought,
and therefore is God. The circle of creation is closed."

I wondered for a while what LOGOS meant, does it actually mean "Thought AND word" or is it "Thought or word"?

"Deep in Earth's heart, the sons of Amenti heard,
and hearing, directing the changing of the flower of fire
that burns eternally, changing and shifting, using the LOGOS,
until that great fire changed its direction."

You have reason for the word so yes thought and word

At least two structures at the Mayan ruins of Chichen
Itza in Mexican display unusual and unexplained
acoustical properties.

The Great Ballcourt:

The Great Ballcourt is 545 feet long and 225 feet wide
overall. It has no vault, no dcontinuity between the
walls and is totally open to the sky.

Each end has a raised "temple" area. A whisper from
end can be heard clearly at the other end 500 feet away
and through the length and breath of the court. The
sould waves are unaffected by wind direction or time of
day/night. Archaeologists engaged in the reconstruction
noted that the sound transmission became stronger and clearer
as they proceeded. In 1931 Leopold Stokowski spent 4 days at
the site to determine the acoustic principals that could be
applied to an open-air concert theater he was designing.
Stokowski failed to learn the secret.

I have come accros information on the web that stated that certain maya structures had rooms tuned to a specific resonance or tone.
I cant find that info anymore but maybe some one else can.

kuxaan sum : "road to the sky leading to the umbilical cord of the universe" the invisible galactic life threads or fibers which connect both the individual and the planet, through the sun, to the galactic core. kuxaan sum defines a resonant pathway providing a continuing channel of communication, a cosmic lifeline. the resonant pathway can be understood as a series of vibratory or resonant lenses. information passing through kuxaan sum is articulated and brings into focus different levels or stages of being. looking through this galactic telescope of vibratory lenses brings into focus a world of coherence and unity, a resonant matrix within which information transmission is virtually instantaneous via harmonic resonance. resonance is the quality of sounding again. to resonate is to reverberate. reverberation implies give and take communication which is always instantaneous and between at least two agents. any communication implies an exchange of information. from the perspective of resonant harmonics, information is the form-vehicle of qualities of energy passing between two agents. as a sounding again, resonance is information. the essence of information is not its content but its resonance. to sense the resonance of incoming information co-creates a resonant field.

Here is some more on the maya resonant connection.

And some more here

This idea can be understood through the Mayan concept of Kuxan Suum, literally “the Road to the Sky Leading to the Umbilical Chord of the Universe.” This umbilical cord is a resonant pathway which connects you, the individual, through the center of the planet, through the heart of the sun, to the galactic core, and if we can imagine, to the Heart of All Beings.


As we move into the basics of Mayan time keeping, it will be helpful to remember that we’re talking about frequencies and harmonic resonance. Indeed, numbers within Mayan mathematics do not specifically relate to quantity, as is usually assumed; all numbers, including zero, represent different frequencies and tones.

Very enlightning..

According to the Mayans I am Tone 6 Rhythmic, creative power to Organize Equality,action of Balance..

I am also the White Rythmic Dog...

sound mattered much more then than it does today. echoes were seen as the voices of the spirits, they had an acute awareness of rhythm and resonance, sang and played musical instruments, and ascribed magical qualities to many sounds.

Do the steps of the Kukulkan Pyramid have a 1500-year-old sound recording?

Yes, they do.

It is ironic that archeologists have thus far ignored sound in their investigation of ancient civilizations. And yet each time they walked down the steps of the pyramid, the ancient audio recording was there to be heard.

Theoretically there need to be at least two steps to produce a recognizable sound. The larger the number of steps, the greater the sound effect (a set of ten steps will produce a sound of one to two hundredths of a second in length.) If the space is enclosed the echo of other structures can cover the sound from the steps. Thus, in order to produce and maintain a sound, it is ideal to have a long row of steps and that it should be out in the open. The Maya clearly understood this.

The Kukulkan Pyramid has 91 wide stone steps on each side. Two of these stairways are completely restored and the bird-song effect can be clearly heard. The same sound but of a slightly lesser intensity can be heard on the two unrestored sides of the pyramid. And all of this is without the layer of fine plaster which originally existed on the surface of the steps.

Because of the length of the stairways, the echo lasts about 100 milliseconds (1/10 of a second). The sound of the quetzal lasts somewhat longer – about 200 milliseconds.

Due to the height of the pyramid there is yet another phenomenon. The sound drops in frequency as you descend from the top, lengthening the time it lasts. Nothing like this exists anywhere else in the world.

The explanation of this phenomenon is as follows: The echo first comes from the lower steps to the listener who is at the bottom of the stairway. The echo from the higher steps comes later. The time between the echoes increases as we go up the stairway. In this way 1) the impression is created that the bird-call is moving, 2) the length of the bird-call is increased, and 3) the frequency of the bird-call is decreased as we descend the stairway.

The Kukulkan Pyramid is a fantastic example of mathematical simulations interwoven into the building skills of the Maya.
