"There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story." ~Linda Hogan

knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe" -
Hazrat Inayat Khan
Throughout history people have intentionally experienced, examined and enjoyed sound. Likewise, all nations and societies have systematic ways of interacting with and learning about sound.
Music is one vehicle by which sound reveals mysteries. Furthermore, musical variety is so great that it provides a virtually endless number of ways for us to experience and study sound. equally incredible, as great as music is, it is not the only way that people seek to experience & study sound - cosmology, marine biology, oceanography, bird watching, auto mechanics & linguistics are a few other ways.
Based on this knowledge we know that sound does teach us about our surroundings - even the very universe from which we come. Still the mystery of sound does not end there. Many paradigms associate sound with the literal beginning of the universe. For instance, Buddhism teaches that the "Om" sound occurred at the beginning of the universe. And Judaism, Christianity & Islam teach that The Creator spoke the universe into existence. Thus, it can be said that sound sheds light on the origin of everything. And as Hazrat Inayat Khan said, "The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe."
"It is the Glory of the Creator to conceal a matter. It is the honor of kings to search out a matter ." - Prov 25:2
