People’s ability to accept sound starts when a baby is in its mother’s belly. And ears are the first to “open up” of the five senses.

The book “Water Knows the Answer” tells the amazing experiment results of making water crystallize while listening to music:
“The crystallization of the water listening to Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony is as beautiful and neat as this song; listening to Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, it shows a gorgeous beauty. Listening to Chopin’s “Farewell”, its exquisite beauty is simply amazing.”

Water occupies more than half of the human body. When it resonates with happy, relaxed, and calming music, it becomes the best antidote to human illnesses too. The happiness that classical music brings to people does not lie in whether it expresses sadness or joy but comes from people’s kind and righteous thoughts. It inspires knowledge that promotes human nature; achieves mentality, and a good body condition.
