Spiritual concepts

Songlines

There are levels of vibration energy  - see Levels and Layer.  There is a level which is the physical universe we can perceive and then a number of levels or layers of higher vibrational energy, symbolised as the rainbow or as ‘Earth’, ‘Water’, ‘Air’, ‘Fire’ and ‘Aether’.

The functions of the universe are located at different levels and linked in a series of Transactions  or activity dependencies – see also Function Dependencies.

When these transactions are actually ‘executed’ – like running a computer program – the path followed is along these lines of dependency and the path of logic can go up and down vibrational levels depending on where the actual functions reside.

And some spiritually gifted people can hear this as music.

This is where we get the ‘music of the spheres’ from [the term is symbolic].  So we can hear the universe being played if we are able to perceive the different spiritual vibration levels as musical notes – as ‘sound’.  We might walk and the transaction of ‘walk’ produces music.  We might eat a plate of chips and hear music as the function of ‘eating chips’ is executed in our mind.

It is difficult to know sometimes what you are actually hearing because some music is the by-product of synaesthesia [one form of sensory input being turned into another], but occasionally it is not synaesthesia and you really can ‘hear the grass grow’.

Sometimes people make symphonies from what they have heard in dreams or visions, or even pop songs.  As the universe executes its transactions, the music is played out in their heads – Beethoven worked this way.  He got all his inspiration from walks in the country, listening to the universe as all the functions ‘ran’ like computer programs.

Once upon a time, shamans knew these tunes and could sing the functional dependencies. Maybe some still can, but don’t want those of us who are not gifted to know.  And we know them now as ‘Songlines’.

The creation ‘sung’ into existence.

Bruce Chatwin – Songlines

Aboriginals could not believe the country existed until they could see and sing it – just as in the Dreamtime, the country had not existed until the Ancestors sang it.

‘So the land’ I said ‘must first exist as a concept in the mind?  Then it must be sung?  Only then can it be said to exist?’

‘True’
