Music defines the direction of development of civilization

The attention of connoisseurs of classical music, seekers of the underlying causes of its impact on our souls, is presented with a video lecture by the musician and public figure from Novosibirsk Galina Pavlova.
This lecture does not cover specific issues of the influence of music on human physiology and psychology. It examined the issue of a deeper and almost completely unconscious influence of music, more precisely the features of its rhythm, on the whole personality of a person and on society as a whole.
Being similar to their wave nature, music directly affects the human energy centers (chakras). Already through them, it affects both the physical body and the higher plane – the spiritual achievements of man. It can either activate and support spiritual growth, or reduce it to zero. Such an effect depends on what rhythm is the basis of the musical composition. It can be a natural rhythm, harmonious with the energy that flows through a person’s chakras, actually making him alive. It can also be a distorted rhythm, which is not harmonious with a person’s vital energy, and is able to “reformat” it for himself, making his body and soul sick. The main task of the author of the lecture was: it is possible to explain what kind of rhythm is so distorted, due to what exactly it is distorted, how to see it directly in the notebook. Whether she managed to achieve her goal is up to you.
The audio fragments used in the lecture:
– Francesco da Milano – Vl. Vavilov. Canzona and dance (Lute music of the XV-XVI centuries)
– Indian stew “Morning love”
– L.V. Beethoven Symphony No. 5
– L.V. Beethoven. Symphony No. 6.
