I. Introduction

The development of nature-­friendly technologies for the prevention and treatment of a wide range of human diseases is one of the promising directions for the development of the global healthcare system. The complexity of the implementation of this direction is due to the unsolved problem of understanding the mechanism of natural regulation, which provides homeostasis of the body, determining its main sources during the evolution of living nature, as well as the reasons for its weakening in modern conditions. An important factor in influencing the homeostatic functions of the body is the acoustic background of natural origin. It is a collection of weak mechanical disturbances of various physical nature propagating in an elastic medium. Audible sounds are an important source of information for wildlife, affecting their regulatory functions. This pattern is reflected in the use of musical works by famous composers, primarily V. A. Mozart, for the prevention and treatment of a wide range of psychosomatic diseases that develop in the body as a reaction to stress. Gregorian chants, as well as the works of I.-S., are recognized as close in therapeutic effect. Bach, A. Vivaldi, G. Handel, P. I. Tchaikovsky, F. Chopin, F. Schubert, R. Schumann and others [1–3].

Numerous studies have established [2–5] that under the influence of these musical works, the immune system is stimulated, partially due to the necessary synthesis of dopamine for the correction of many mental processes. Getting pleasure from listening to music is also associated with the production of oxytocin by the brain, which acts as a soft drug. A number of researchers attribute the positive effect of listening to music with its consistency with part of the high-frequency biorhythms of the human body. Despite the large amount of information about the therapeutic effect of the above music in the treatment of psychosomatic diseases of a person, there is no complete understanding that certain musical works have the necessary effect on the body. Also, the evolutionary mechanism of the high governing role for the organisms of these musical works is not clear. To solve these problems, it is necessary to conduct a comparative spectral analysis of musical works with real processes of natural origin, which are associated with the evolution of organisms and humans, in particular.

The purpose of this article is to evaluate the correlation between the spectra of famous musical works and low-frequency fluctuations of the microwave radiation of the Sun reaching the Earth’s surface, the main source of the formation and evolution of regulatory systems of organisms.

II. Evaluation of the Correlation Coefficient of the Spectrum of Music Works of Known Composers with Low-Frequency Fluctuations of the Sun Microwave

to assess the correlation of musical works with low-frequency fluctuations of the microwave radiation of the Sun, we use the following musical compositions:

• V. A. Mozart — Symphony No. 40;

• I. S. Bach — Toccata and Fugue in D minor;

• V. May — Toccata and Fugue in D minor (in modern processing);

• The Beatles — Yesterday;

• Adyghe lullaby;

• Gregorian choral “Diesirae”.

To obtain the spectrum of musical works, we will use the discrete Fourier transform [6–9]

 (1)

An analysis of the spectra of the indicated works (Fig. 1–6) indicates the presence of general laws and small amplitude differences in their frequency distribution.

To assess the controlling role of the above musical works for therapeutic purposes, it is necessary to conduct a comparative assessment with signals that possessed an unconditional controlling role for organisms at all stages of their evolution.

Among the variety of external factors that formed its homeostasis during the evolution of an organism, the Sun plays a priority role [9–12]. The informational nature of the processes of an explosive nature occurring on the Sun, with the help of various types of its radiation reaching the Earth’s surface (electromagnetic) or near-­Earth space (corpuscular), with a high degree of probability was the basis for the formation of neural and humoral regulation mechanisms in organisms. These mechanisms are designed to provide the body with a controlled rhythm of processes at various levels of its organization. They are the most important stabilizing and regulating factor in its internal environment.

Figure 3. The spectrum of the work “The Beatles — Yesterday”.

Figure 4. The spectrum of the “Adyghe lullaby”.

Figure 5. Spectrum of the Gregorian Choir “Diesirae”.

Of the above emissions, the priority control role belongs to microwave radiation, which reaches the Earth’s surface 8 minutes after the start of radiation. The information component of this radiation is associated with its low-frequency fluctuations. A hypothesis is known [5] that it is these fluctuations that underlie the formation of its neural regulation mechanism in the process of evolution of an organism. The complexity of the instrumental measurement of real fluctuations in the microwave radiation of the Sun reaching the Earth’s surface was determined by studies to substantiate their model.

The result of such studies was the justification of the structure of low-frequency fluctuations, which is a continuous random sequence of discrete ΔTi with a duration of ΔTi = (0.01 … 10) s, within which the oscillation frequency varies at different speeds linearly in the range of sound frequencies (the rate of change of frequency in For each sample, dF / dt and the initial frequency F0 lie in the range of dF / dt = ± (5 … 200) · 103 Hz / s and F= (20 … 20,000) Hz, respectively) (Fig. 6) [12–16].

The spectrum of such a signal, calculated by the formula (1), (Fig. 7) reflects the distribution of its amplitudes over the range of sound frequencies.

To determine the “similarity” of the above spectra of musical compositions y (f) with the spectrum of the model of low-frequency fluctuations of the microwave radiation of the Sun x (f), we use the procedure for calculating their linear correlation coefficient [17–20].

 (2)

An analysis of the results of calculating the linear correlation coefficients (Table 1) indicates a high degree of connection between the model of natural fluctuations of the microwave radiation of the Sun and well-known musical works.

III. Conclusion

The results of calculating the correlation coefficient (x (f), y (f)) presented in Table 1 should be recognized as unexpected, once they reflect a previously unknown high degree of correlation. Based on the revealed regularity, it follows that the works of famous composers can be considered as a reflection in the author’s processing of real natural processes, which include the fluctuations of the solar microwave radiation. The result can be used as the basis for substantiating the necessary procedure for determining certain musical works for their use for medicinal purposes. For a comparative assessment, Table 1 shows the results of calculating the correlation of fluctuations of the microwave radiation of the Sun with the singing of widely known birds, as well as with the low-frequency analogue of “white” and “pink” noises. They reflect a low correlation with natural low-frequency fluctuations of electromagnetic radiation of natural origin.
