Sympathetic vibration. It’s a phenomenon that occurs everywhere in nature. I hum a note and the piano string that corresponds to that pitch begins to vibrate without being struck.
There are notes: G,C,D etc. and they are common. There are chords built from these notes and the more complex they are, the less frequently they appear in musical context. This occurs in people and in relationships as well. Normal people are common. Above average people are less so and stark raving geniuses are like augmented sixth chords. Most people don’t even know how to identify them, much less employ or relate to them.
Example: Let’s say I am an average guy who works in construction. I like football and I drive a pick-up and I enjoy a beer or two on the weekend. That is a fairly basic template for ‘Average Joe’. If you are ‘All-American Jane’ who likes to go out on the weekends and has her hair done every once in a while and would love to settle down and raise a family or have a career or both, it’s more likely that you are going to get along Average Joe fairly well as compared to Sir Denis the monied steel magnate or Timon the performance artist. You are more likely to have things in common, share similar interests and generally harmonize more naturally.
So… What about the above average types? The Doctors and Lawyers and such? Well, there aren’t as many above average types but the principle is the same. Potential mates with a college education or even a graduate degree will be more likely to share similar interests and ‘feel their vibe’.
Hey, geniuses? There aren’t a lot of you. I suggest you learn to blend in because when the revolution comes, you are going to be the first ones hit on the head with a rock because, frankly, you intimidate and frighten the Average Joes. It’s not you, it’s them, but seriously… Camouflage. Seriously.
But what about emotional vibrations? That has nothing to do with intelligence or socioeconomic standing, right? Well, in much the same way a pacifist and a sargeant major have less chance of getting together than birds of a feather, who you are is mirrored in many different ways. What if you’re extremely different emotionally? In that case, it’s like being a genius except we call you crazy! (Please don’t stab me!)
While all creatures great and small are affected by and responsive to these vibrations, it seems that in the human species, women are far more responsive than men. As such, they tend to be more sensitive to the subtle characteristics of another person based solely upon how they feel. This can be quite frustrating to the Angry Genius who just seems ‘I don’t know… creepy, I guess…’. (of course I would know nothing about any of this) (On a completely unrelated note, I wonder if the LORD doesn’t program the angry into the genius in order to get something. Increased output? Drive? Art?)
