Is that one of my drawings on the cover of this book?

The answer is no. The image is one of many remarkable photographs of the invisible "vibrational world" made visible, taken by Dr. Hans Jenny, a Swiss medical doctor, natural scientist, artist, musician, and philosopher. His book, Cymatics, (after the Greek "Ta Kymatika", matters pertaining to waves) documents the extraordinary research of this modern day (1904-1972) Renaissance man.

The musical excerpts featured on this narrative are taken from an emotionally charged mid- 1960’s era recording I heard a few days after my dream experience in 1974, performed by violinist Wanda Wilkomirska.
