A report from National Geographic News suggests that prehistoric peoples chose caves with naturally good acoustics in which to create their cave paintings. This is according to research conducted by Iegor Reznikoff, an acoustics expert at the University of Paris. The suggestion being that music may have been used in the religious ceremonies of our ancestors. I find this to be a fascinating confirmation of the Bahá’í view of the spiritual nature of humanity. It brings to mind these words of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
‘The art of music is divine and effective. It is the food of the soul and spirit. Through the power and charm of music the spirit of man is uplifted’.
