Paul Devereux is a professor from Cambridge and an archaeo-acoustician who researches the area of archaeology and acoustics and who has visited ancient sites and temples analyzing the ritual use of sound. He has also explores what happens to the brain when it is exposed to the frequency of 110Hz.
Findings of MRI scans suggest that at exactly 110hz, the brain switches off the prefrontal cortex, deactivating the language center, and temporary switches from left to right-sided dominance, that is responsible for intuition, creativity, holistic processing, inducing a state of meditation or a trance.
The Maltese Hypogeum is a temple hewn out of the rock during 3600-2500BC that covers some 500m2 with the lowest room being around 11 meters under the ground, mirroring Temples above the ground that are the oldest free standing structures on Earth.
Testing that analyzed the sound within the Oracle Chamber in the Hypogeum found to match the same pattern of resonance at the frequency of 110Hz
Seven thousand years ago, a thousand years before the Egyptian pyramids, in the Mediterranean, in Malta, an amazing civilization seemed to be flourishing in peace and harmony for 2,500 years.
They built the Maltese Megalithic Temples, had an advance knowledge not only of architecture but of sound rituals that induce a trance-like meditation or higher state of consciousness.
Descending into the Hypogeum, one can re-connect with this culture that used overtone chanting, unearthly, angelic singing, bell ringing, singing balls, and drums to reach altered states of consciousness. These sacred musical rituals found their place in religions all around the world: within Christian Mass singing, Tibetan or Buddhist chanting, Hindu devotional songs.
The sound resonates through the bones within the Hypogeum.
The sound ritual was used to lead ‘devotees’ into trance-like meditation, increasing their emotional and social intelligence.
Today, various studies suggest that the long-term practice of meditation sculpt the brain towards more patient, emotionally balanced, and creative individuals.
