MUSIC OF THE SPHERES
Hello again folks! I'm currently listening to Mike Oldfield's first foray into the classical music arena entitled: "Music of the Spheres". Here are Mike's own words on his inspiration for this work:
"In this world, everything has a pulse or a vibration. This sound is unique to each living or non living thing and in itself creates a music that no-one can hear. I believe that this has a very powerful resonance with, and a deep effect, on our lives. What would happen if we took this further and apply this to bigger things , more powerful things ; like an entire solar system or galaxy say, what would that sound like? Musica Universalis is the ancient theory that every celestial body, the sun, the moon and the stars has an inner music. This is a harmonic and mathematical concept derived from the movements of the planets in the solar system. The music created is inaudible to the human ear. Music of the Spheres is my interpretation of this theory. Every planet and every star; even the whole universe has music within it that no-one can hear, this is what it would sound like if it was set free. This is Music of the Spheres. Mike Oldfield" [end quote]
And I agree! But before you go and accuse me of going all 'New-Agey'; please hear me out. In the post-Fall and pre-Flood world; I believe that the earth was covered by a canopy of water. This world had uniform temperature and humidity and there was no rain; just a kind of dewy mist that watered the ground.
"Science has discovered that stars emit radio waves, which are received on earth as a high pitch. God mentioned this in Job 38:7: “When the morning stars sang together…” It has been found that stars of different size emit different tones. Larger star give off lower tones than smaller stars. When recorded together this produces a harmonic sound like unto an orchestra." [source: http://www.lifeinthebible.com/?page_id=108].
It could be that this symphony was more audible and unified with the canopy effect and it being a lot closer to the point of Creation [less corruption of creation et al]. What the words of Mike Oldfield in his introduction to this great musical piece tell us is that he acknowledges the design and resonance and coherence in the universe [and by extension - the Creation].
There is no order out of chaos my friends. The THEORY of evolution is a bare-faced pipe dream meant to deceive millions of souls into thinking that they are random and 'just making up the numbers'. Whether it be the "music of the spheres" or the universe or even a strand of DNA or the complexity of a single cell organism.
I do agree with Mr. Oldfield ... the Creation is singing ... even though we may not be able to discern it as much these days. The Bible says that it is literally groaning and creaking [see Romans 8:22] awaiting the Redemption of the New Heaven and New Earth so often prophesied in the scriptures. Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed and in short supply; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED! and watch that periphery!
