Acoustics pioneer John Stuart Reid is on a mission to educate and inspire the world in the field of cymatics — the science of visible sound. He asserts that sound was a potent force in the initial creation of life from primordial oceans, thereby carrying the power to heal life.
In his Shift Network foundational course, John has revealed groundbreaking information on the mechanisms that support sound therapy and music medicine, and his advanced Shift Network course took a deep dive into these same subjects.
His CymaScope invention has forever changed the world’s perception of sound, by giving us the ability to “see” sound and better understand this ubiquitous aspect of life. His cymatics research, which is elevating this important new field in scientific and medical arenas, includes a study on differentiating between the sounds emitted by healthy cells and cancer cells that was published in the Water Journal.
In John’s words, “The old adage seeing is believing takes on an important new meaning — to see sound is to open a new window on our world, one that has been veiled for all time, until now.”
SR short bio:
Acoustics-physics scientist, John Stuart Reid, is a man on a mission to educate and inspire the world in the field of cymatics, the study of visible sound. His CymaScope invention has changed our perception of sound forever: seeing sound allows us to understand this omnipresent aspect of our world and universe fuller and deeper. His cymatics research is helping to elevate this important new field in the scientific arena, including a study on how dolphins see with sound, published in the Journal of Marine Biology. His two recent studies are focused on the effects of music on the longevity of red blood cells, to better understand the biological mechanisms that underpin music as medicine, and on differentiating between the sounds emitted by healthy cells and cancer cells, a scientific paper published in the Water Journal, with far reaching health implications. In 2021 he was invited to write a chapter on Sound Therapy and Music Medicine for a new medical text book, which was published in 2022, in English, Russian and Slovak and is now available as a free e-book download.
