Check out this amazing paper published recently in the Water Journal with research from the creator of the CymaScope, an amazing device which lets us visualize cymatics. He also has a smart phone app available for download which is pretty fancy.
Here’s the abstract:
“In controlled conditions water can be used as a means of transforming sonic periodicities to water wavelet periodicities, a process that results in the production of Faraday Wave images. The present study uses a Cymascope instrument to render visible the sonic periodicities emitted by cancer cells and healthy cells in human brain tissues, in medical grade water, a step toward developing a real-time surgical procedure support in which the margins of cancerous tissue may be clearly identified for the surgeon during tumor removal. Sound files generated from sonified Raman spectroscopy signals of cancer tissue and healthy tissue are injected into the Cymascope instrument’s fused-quartz, water-filled cuvette. The resulting imagery is captured by digital camera and quantitatively analyzed using a generalized form of the Planck radiation formula, termed Planckian Distribution Equation (PDE). PDE has been found to fit many long-tailed asymmetric histograms (LAH) reported in fields as diverse as atomic physics, protein folding, single-molecule enzymology and in many other fields. The apparent universality of PDE is postulated to be due to the principle of wave-particle duality embedded in PDE that applies not only to quantum mechanics but also to macrophysics. The new classification method referred to as the Planck-Shannon Classifier, which is formulated based on PDE is shown to successfully distinguish between the Faraday Wave images from cancer cell and healthy cell sounds.”
