It's happening all the time! We take this small marvel for granted..
One of my Reiki teachers – years ago – Ms. Susan B. Layne -- was really into the ear and I thought this was weird and silly.
Then, I researched the ears, sound and vibration – Whoa!
Here's a little piece:
As we all can figure out, sound waves make the eardrum vibrate. What we may not be so aware of is that, as it vibrates, the eardrum transfers sound waves to the jossicles, three bones that form a bridge across the middle ear. These bones are named with the Latin words for their shapes:
• the malleus, or hammer
• the incus, or anvil
• and the stapes, or stirrup.
Akin to the feat of moving a mountain, these tiny sound waves must move the middle ear bony structures to cause vibration. This vibration and movement causes the ossicles to transmit the sound waves efficiently to the inner ear.
The Cochlea is a snail-shaped structure that consists of bone on the outside and fluid-filled membranes on the inside.
This is the only part of our body that has this Geometry. The
Geometry of this shape is referred to as the Golden Mean Ratios, which is
defined as: 'The desirable middle ground between any two extremes.'
