Peter Hübner - Micro Music Laboratories
Prof. Dr. med. Gunther Hildebrandt  • Chronobiological Aspects of Music Physiology

The two-way di­vi­sion of the to­tal spec­trum which is marked by the hori­zon­tal dou­ble line in il­lus­tra­tion 1 is im­por­tant. In the long wave field there are such rhyth­mic func­tions – to­gether with daily, weekly, monthly and an­nual rhythms – for which in the geo­physi­cal-cos­mic or socio-eco­logi­cal en­vi­ron­men­tal or­der there exist ap­pro­pri­ate rhyth­mic proc­esses, even if these are of a very dif­fer­ent na­ture.

The or­gan­ism is by no means pas­sively sub­jected to these ex­ter­nal tem­po­ral or­ders. They do not sim­ply con­trol its func­tions from the out­side, but it has more or less in­ter­nal­ized these or­ders and is ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing them it­self. This has been clearly proven in trials with com­plete en­vi­ron­men­tal iso­la­tion in bun­kers and caves (cf. il­lus­tra­tion 4).

The out­side en­vi­ron­men­tal rhythms, how­ever, have the ef­fect of time keep­ers, they have a syn­chro­niz­ing, i.e. phase-regu­la­ting ef­fect and in this way se­cure the cos­mic or­dered basis for the en­tire time struc­tures of the or­gan­ism and their cor­rect en­vi­ron­men­tal clas­si­fi­ca­tion.

This ap­plies es­pe­cially to daily and yearly rhythms, while the weekly and monthly rhythms of the or­gan­ism have al­ready, to a large ex­tent, be­come in­de­pend­ent, ob­vi­ously in the course of a gen­eral pro­gres­sive tem­po­ral eman­ci­pa­tion of civi­lized hu­man be­ings from the natu­ral tem­po­ral or­ders.

The thick lines mark the ac­tiv­ity time (cf. leg­end in top right part of the il­lus­tra­tion). The trial days have been en­tered in the left mar­gin of the il­lus­tra­tion.
