to Drums and Rhythm
has been part of our daily lives before the flame was found"
Hundreds of drumming enthusiasts
are taking the world by storm and they are not alone. All major corporations
have joined the band wagon like Toyota, Wesbank and Glaxo to "beat
stress" and to build teams with a network of unbounding rhythm.
very first thing we hear, long before we are born is the rhythmic beating
of our mothers heart.
cells, our organs, our systems operate rhythmically, births are rhythmic
events, and so are breathing, walking, digesting food and making love.
science has proven that we live in a rhythm in which everything in the
universe moves in rhythms - every tiny electron, every tree, every planet
and every star.
societies have always had some instinctive understanding of these pulses
and how they interact. Since the 17th century, western scientist too have
known about rhythmic entertainment, which is one of the great organizing
principles of the world.
the principle holds that if two similar rhythms are in close proximity
they will automatically 'entrain', or fall into synchrony. So if you place
two out-of-sync pendulums beside each other, you'll find after a day or
so that they are keeping time together.
law could also explain why the menstrual cycles of woman who live together
synchronize after a while.
