Peter Hübner: Generally speaking, the pharmaceutical industry is a part of the chemical industry to which I owe the ability to manufacture our products. We use magnetic tapes and CDs as sound carriers and both are achievements of the chemical industry.
More importantly, the chemical industry has supported me generously in my work as a composer and researcher by providing a large number of expensive tapes. Especially the companies AGFA, a "subsidiary" of Bayer and BASF. I received this support from the heads of these companies and why shouldn`t the research which I was able to carryout with their help, be credited back to them?
Firstly, I feel towards these industries a natural sense of gratitude and closeness, as they have in the past and still today support my work – as does the computer industry.
Secondly, if I were to work more closely with them in the future, I would anticipate them being the most relentless, harshest critics of my work, since they would always be looking towards scientific methodology to achieve objectivity.
Thirdly, I believe that pharmaceutics will always have advantages which musical structures do not have and that musical structures will always have advantages which chemical structures do not have. And this is precisely why I believe in the necessity for a workable symbiotic relationship.
And fourthly, once my products are created and musical structures exist, then they can be duplicated with the help of chemical products as sound carriers (musical structure carriers) just like pharmaceutical products. This means: the chemical industry could in principle take over the duplication and distribution of my musical products – albeit in close proximity to its own products.
Music & Nature: So, then you will have the natural healers who have until now been on your side against you?
Peter Hübner: As I have said, based on the principle of thought, I am linked with the pharmaceutical industry, in the firm belief of success in the area of medicine using objective scientific measures. And I cannot imagine that those working in pharmaceutics do not strive for naturalness in the same way as all natural healing followers.
But these researchers subject all their work and achievements to the principles of objective science. I do not believe that they would be opposed to any natural structuring of medical preparations, if this were to be based on objective scientific criteria. And in my view, even so called natural medicine is only consistently successful if it is based on this rational, objective scientific approach. Especially Pythagoras, who I refer to for my musical work in the field of medicine, is recognised as being the founder of natural science and the movement towards objective scientific knowledge.
Through the services of pharmaceutics, doctors have a great deal of personal power and a part of their success can be attributed to pharmaceutics. And yet, modern, scientifically trained medics are at ease with this situation and do not suffer from a loss of personality or inferiority complexes. They are part of a large, proven, science-orientated system of medical care and are just as indispensable as "medical preparations" and "medical technology".
Many healers and non-medical practitioners have never had the chance to become part of a successful system of treatment. They carry on for better or worse, without being able to draw on major objective widespread healing successes and then become frustrated when they don`t find the recognition they want in their specialist field.
I was inspired and asked, not by these people, but by the field of medical science and by leading international specialists, to look objectively at the harmonic laws at play in the microcosm of music and to develop these for modern medicine.
And it is those very people who are involved in modern scientific medicine who provide the majority of the support for this work from their own commitment and research.
This may also be related to the fact that the professional group of so-called orthodox practitioners has more "practising" musicians than any other professional group.
More and more doctors are turning to natural methods of treatment since without doubt, they have seen more harmful side effects from pharmaceutical preparations than their patients and are relieved when they are not reproached as a result of these preparations having been previously prescribed.
Many are using natural healing methods, perhaps not exactly voluntarily on account of new knowledge, but because they are made to fear that their patients may go elsewhere. More than 80% of patients today prefer to see naturopaths. Of course, these doctors recognise and pay special regard to my Medical Resonance Therapy Music®.
