Music and the Quantum Mind

David Bohm, described as one of the most significant theoretical physicists of the 20th century, suggested that when we look at matter, we see nothing that helps us to understand consciousness. Bohm discussed the experience of listening to music. He believed that the feeling of movement and change that make up our experience of music derive from holding the immediate past and the present in the brain together. The musical notes from the past are transformations rather than memories. (See more about this interesting connection on this website in the post titled, Read Out of the Best Books.)

In the scientific world, string theory is an elementary string that looks like an ordinary particle, with its mass, charge, and other properties determined by the vibrational state of the string. In the scriptures we read, “Intelligence [vibrating string, quantum], or the light [energy] of truth [mass] was not created [is elementary] or made neither can be.” [Everything in brackets is M. Kasey’s opinion.]

These intelligences might operate on the quantum mind level at the speed of thought. In the last chapter of the novel Marty’s Dark Matter, is the following excerpt:

Unfolding before her eyes was a chapel, and on the front rows were Marty’s children, grandchildren, friends, and relatives. Ronnie Wilson, from Dragon’s Butterfly Net, sang the beautiful Elvis rendition of “I Believe.” Before singing, he told the audience Marty had asked him to sing the song at her funeral and had told him “Some music is like the mathematical rhythm of the spirit speaking to the soul.” There were a few chuckles from the audience as they recognized the statement as Marty’s unique way of thinking.
