The founding statement of the Union of Concerned Scientists, as well as their "World Scientists Warning to Humanity" gives credence to the current crisis resulting from the institutions of modernism: "Misuse of scientific and technical knowledge presents a major threat to the existence of mankind. Through its actions in Vietnam our government has shaken our confidence in its ability to make wise and humane decisions. There is also disquieting evidence of an intention to enlarge further our immense destructive capability." (1968 MIT Faculty Statement resulted in the founding of the Union of Concerned Scientists in early 1969) From the World Scientists' Warning to Humanity: "Some 1,700 of the world's leading scientists, including the majority of Nobel laureates in the sciences, issued this appeal in November 1992. [Introduction] 'Human beings and the natural world are on a collision course...Fundamental changes are urgent if we are to avoid the collision our present course will bring about.'"

(8) One of the noted fears regarding radical ecology is its assumed status as the latest manifestation of Foucault's bio-power-a negative repressive force of modernism. The Foucauldian argument is discussed in Jozef Keulartz. The Struggle for Nature: A critique of radical ecology (London: Routeldge, 1998)--a sophisticated analysis that raises these issues in a mature, albeit misguided, framework--to which I'll be returning.

In support of rational humanism, Bordwell assumes the cognitive logic of problem solving by "rational agents" what my colleague Chet Kite calls "the detective aesthetic." An approach which ironically, through psychoanalysis, social theory, and new paradigm analysis, has proved the inherent limits of rationalism as an epistemology of modern Western elite institutions while also showing that all matter acts as "rational agents"! (i.e. for the limits of rationalism see the general science theory texts The End of Science: Facing the limits of knowledge in the twilight of the scientific age by John Horgan; Beyond Science by John Polkinghorne, and The End of the World: The Science and Ethics of Human Extinction by John Leslie). In an attempt to get to the root of the same out-of-balance genocidal assumptions of Western institutions, as they were manifested during Nazism, the film director Syberberg uses the term "music of the future" for his approach to utopian meaning. I'm indebted to my colleague James Hong for the reference. To get beyond the horror of corporate-state modern regimes, my "music of the future" or sound-current non-dualism maps what film director and social theorist Raul Ruiz describes in his discussion regarding utopias as, "events that could move from one dimension to another, and that could be broken down into images cooccupying different dimensions, all with the sole aim of being able to add, multiply, or divide them and reconstitute them at will."

(16) The emphasis here is on rhythmic, harmonic vibrations or resonance not just vibrations.-as physicist K.C. Cole discovered, " 'resonance' was behind the very nature of matter."--the fundamental basis for transposing quantities to qualities. Sympathetic Vibrations: Reflections on physics as a way of life (NY: Bantam, 1985). Mark B. Woodhouse. Paradigm Wars: Worldviews for a New Age (Berkeley, CA: North Atlantic Press), p. 178. According to http://www.markwoodhouse.com/ "Mark Woodhouse, Ph.D., is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Georgia State University, [and]...is the author of a widely used text, A Preface to Philosophy, adopted by universities in all fifty states and abroad. He is also a consulting editor for the Journal of Near-Death Studies."

Zimmerman is considered a leading critical expert on Heidegger and has recently wrote on why modernism is, overall, outright dismissing and ignoring obvious anomalies like the alien abduction phenomenon.

(18) Two other recent "grand theorists" that also cite leading scientists--similar to Woodhouse and myself--are Joachim-Ernst Berendt's The World is Sound, Nada Brahma: Music and the Landscape of Consciousness, forward by Fritjof Capra and promotion by Stanislav Grof (Rochester, VT: Destiny Books, 1991) and Ross Wiseman.

(21) This global culture, represented by over 1200 civil society organizations, gathered at the 1992 Earth Summit and at the Shutdown of the WTO in Seattle, 1999. As David Korten states in The Post-Corporate World, there is a "new integral culture" based on the sage Sri Aurobindo's vision of divine anarchy. According to surveys done by Paul Ray, the U.S. is 47% modernist, 29% "heartlanders" (pre-modern western values) and 24% "cultural creatives" or of the new integral culture. "Now they are a major and growing cultural response to the accelerating failures of modernism." David C. Korten, The Post-Corporate World: Life After Capitalism.

(24) Mary E. Clark notes, "Curiously enough, it was not workers, but monks in the monasteries and cathedrals of Medieval Europe who first kept track of the hours...This all-pervasive consciousness of the passing of time is an absolute prerequisite for the building of an 'efficient' society. It is a fundamental part of the Western worldview." Ariadne's Thread, p. 275. In further verification of Noble's analysis, the first famous clock was from 966 of the imperial monk origins, as music analyst Berendt notes. He comments, "The only thing we know for sure is the fact that it was the clergy who saw to it that the mechanical clock became a functioning timepiece." Berendt, The World is Sound, p. 98.

(30) Jeans, Science and Music, p. 67. Or again as music analyst Berendt cites physicist Jean E. Charon, "Each particle...has its own spin, and all these spins vibrate together in the whole-number proportions of the overtone scale. This then is the prime model of mind and spirit." The World Is Sound, p. 125 citing Jean E. Charon: L'Esprit, cet inconnu (Paris: n.p., 1977).

(31) Bealieau, Music and Sound in the Healing Arts, p. 45.

(32) Pythagoras, for reasons (and with profound cultural implications) to be discussed below, limited his overt analysis to the logical type or order of information of ratios from which the notes of the scale are determined. I.e. space-time constructs, as the new physics has shown, are relative to the void. An example follows from physicist Nick Herbert in his chapter Wave Motions: The Sound of Music: "Just as sine waves are the natural vibrations of a stretched string, so spherical harmonics are the natural vibrations of an elastic sphere...Whenever a sphere vibrates, certain nodal circles appear where the sphere stands still." The multidimensional implications for quantum theory are derived from Fourier's Theorem that determines the fundamental wave of complex wave-forms by analyzing spatial frequencies, amplitudes and phase relations. Herbert, Quantum Reality, pp. 25-30.

(33) Jeans, Science and Music, p. 157, p. 153. A follower of George Ivanovich Gurdjieff states what happens when the natural free threshold or limit is reached (when the octave accesses the nothingness): "To increase the rate of vibrations of a material, we need to apply energy to it. Eg, to raise the temperature, you need to apply heat to a substance. In popular physics not much attention is given to the fact that the increase in the rate of vibrations is not always directly related to the rate of application of energy, i.e. applying energy at a constant rate does not always give a constant increase in the rate of vibrations. A very simple example is in heating water from ice to steam - there are two points, the point when the ice is at 0 degrees C, but not yet melted, and the point when the water is at 100 degrees C, but not yet steam. At these two points, one has to keep applying heat for a longer period of time for the temperature to rise....Now, the theory is that this pattern will occur for vibrations in any kind of material, and here we are talking about a wider category of material than physics usually deals with, for instance, one's own psychology." See http://www.geocities.com/Tokyo/1080/7law.html. This musical interval leap or whole-number multiple was the direct inspiration for Max Planck's "quantum leap" where the particle of energy mysteriously "jumps" from one atom to the next. Theorist and author Bruce Cathie has applied the interval leap to explore energy nodes on the planet and nodal links to other dimensions.

(35) As Bateson discovers, "the Pythagoras theorem [developed from music theory] is all there in the axioms...no 'self evident' propositions but self-evident links. The essential requirement of tautology is that links between the propositions shall be empty - i.e. shall contain no information about the subject of discourse."

Berendt also cites music analyst Wilfried Krüger who remarks, "By establishing that time stands still, that 'place' is nowhere and everywhere, and that the mass of a particle moving at the speed of light (such as a photon) is equal to zero, nuclear physics approaches a threshold that mystics have approached, and still approach, from the other direction."

(56) Meyer states: "The psychology of human mental processes: Those musical events, whatever their particular stylistic-syntactic premises, which are so structured that they conform to the Gestalt laws of pattern perception (the principles of good continuation, closure, return, and the like)-laws which are themselves perhaps a reflection of the neurophysiological organization of the central nervous system (CNS)-will be more redundant [not in a pejorative sense] than events which are incongruous with the natural modes of cognitive ordering."

(61) Technology can be created from the sound-current principles. Woodhouse in Paradigm Wars examines the potential of many examples that use sound-current non-dualism to create paranormal realities, like radionics, radioscopy, photo-acoustic spectroscopy, holography, and scalar electromagnetics. For instance Pythagoras, Ptolemy and Kepler were right about the harmony of the spheres: "the fact that from an unlimited wealth of possible orbits [the planets] have chosen precisely those which oscillate and sound in the proportions of undivided numbers prevalent in our 'earthbound' music." (derived from the angular velocity constants relative to the sun). Berendt, The World Is Sound, pp. 60-64. For the principles of resonance used to make nuclear waste non-radioactive, see Robert A. Nelson, "Transmutations of Nuclear Waste" in Nexus: New Times Magazine, Feb-March, 2000, p. 47.

Like polygraph expert Cleve Backster, who in 1966 discovered something he calls "primary perception" in plants, these medical men published numerous reports describing the existence of a complex field of energy surrounding every man, woman and child and every living thing on Earth. They call it the L-field or Field of Life - a refined form of energy which could be a kind of "higher octave" force existing beyond the familiar electromagnetic spectrum. These fields surround every cell and seed. Apparently in existence everywhere in the universe, they coalesce prior to the formation of the physical organism (and may survive its dissolution)." from Magic: Science of the Future (London: Signet, 1976), pp. 72-73.

(87) Berendt also gives the broader context: "Chuang-tzu, the ancient Chinese sage, wrote 'What is one, is one. What is not-one, also is one.' And Erich Fromm notes: 'Paradoxical logic was predominant in Chinese and Indian thinking, in Heraclitus' philosophy, and then again under the name of dialectics in the thought of Hegel and Marx....Our Western concept of logic is strongly conditioned by Western language....Weizsacker points out that 'the philosophies are closely related to the grammatical structures of the language. The subject-predicate scheme of Aristotelian logic corresponds to the grammatical structure of the Greek declarative sentence...In his tome, Nietzsche noted that the 'astounding family likeness' seen in Western philosophies could be explained 'simple enough,' namely by their 'unconscious domination by the same grammatical functions'....By way of contrast, the thinking behind the Chinese and Japanese languages do not move in a straight line from the subject to the object with no aid of the verb. It circles around its object and envelops it until it is specified as precisely as the objects in our Western languages (which presupposes an inner predicate); in fact, specialists feel that these Asian languages are even more precise since they do not simply 'objectivate' but rather let subject and object 'become one' so that the active and the passive mode fall together...."
