|What Research Has Been Done On The Effects Of Certain Types Of Music?|
Recently, I found out that a considerable amount of scientific research that has been done on music and its effects. This research has confirmed what I already knew about music by the Spirit of Christ. The following are somewhat condensed (and no findings of science are ever 100% conclusive, nor do they claim to be) but we can still see a lot in this research:
Classical music causes significant improvement of physiological parameters. It causes behavioral improvement and coordination improvement. It increases the ability to complete tasks neatly and quietly, and increases concentration span. Attention-seeking activities are decreased.
Wheat will grow faster when exposed to special sounds.
Putting rats into two connected boxes and piping rock into one box and Bach into the other, the rats choose Bach music over rock. They move to the Bach box. When the type of music was switched from one box to the other, the rats will move again from the rock to the Bach box.
Anapestic beat causes switching, the actual symmetry between both of the cerebral hemispheres is destroyed causing alarm in the body
These particular beats (that we know is rock) cause or contribute to the following:
Addictive behavior to a certain type of sound
Inability of the body to discern between what is harmful and healthy
The body seems to prefer that which is destroying it
Sensual excitement or lust
Lessened work performance
Learning and behavior problems
Decreased performance in school
Improvement when they stop listening to these beats
Decreased work output
Reduced decision-making capacity
A vague feeling that something is wrong
unexplained loss of energy
Shrill frequencies prove to be harmful to the body.
Ostinato: repetitive sound patterns, often mindless, induce a hypnotic state.
Loudness of certain types of music creates an actual physical addiction because of the chemicals that are released into the blood stream. The victim becomes dependent on hearing loud music with specific types of sound patterns, and has a form of withdrawal if unable to have a sustained period of listening at a loud volume. This is true of Heavy Metal, as an example.
Lyrical ambiguity is used in many songs, just as it is used to promote evil in new age neurolinguistic hypnosis techniques. Lyrical ambiguity is found in cross-over music, which purposely attempts to use words and phrases that have more than one meaning.
Some music is created to replicate the use of certain drugs or alcohol.
Here is an interesting fact: Even at low levels, the music is still has these destructive effects. Music even has an effect even with the ears completely blocked.
