In the beginning was the Word

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.

—Hebrews 1:1-3

barlow_girl and I recently watched this TED talk on cymatics, the art of visualizing sound. It's just four and a half minutes, and at first I just watched with mild interest. But then it started to become clear: sound actually forms the shape of things. I think I've heard that before.
