The intensity of the sound produced by a vibratory body, depends upon the amplitude of its vibrations.

The intensity of a sound varies inversely as the square of the distance from its origin, only when the sound waves can radiate freely in all directions without interruption. [Harris, T. F.; Hand Book of Acoustics, 5th edition; J. Curwen & Sons, London, 1903?]

"intensity varies as the square of the amplitude" [Harris, T. F.; Hand Book of Acoustics, 5th edition; J. Curwen & Sons, London, 1903?, page 138]

"It has been found by experiment that not only does the intensity of sound vary with the amplitude of the vibrations of the sounding body; but as nearly as the square of the amplitude. For instance, if a piano string can be made to vibrate so that the width of swing in its motion is one-fiftieth of an inch, and if another piano string giving the same pitch can be made to vibrate with an amplitude of one twenty-fifth of an inch, then the second will have an amplitude twice that of the first and its intensity will be approximately four times as great." [Piano Tuning and Allied Arts]

Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"How can I describe for you, my inner glow, my transcendent brightness and brilliance of joy and powerful feelings of love which possessed and inflated my entire being with their intensity until I cried out with the pressure within my mind and heart. It was so powerful it seemed it would entirely dissolve my bodily form." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Christ Letters - Letter 1, page 18]

"You now know that the Father-Mother Creative Process and the tools of physical creation are all in a state of equilibrium within the Universal Dimension, but now that equilibrium is to be exploded to bring about


You know, too, that since the Infinite Eternal IMPULSES are contained in a state of mutual restraint, these IMPULSES are of an unimaginable intensity of energy - against which your atomic energy contained within the splitting of an atom is a mere 'pouff', an infinitesimal twitch of no importance.
I want you to fully realise all the foregoing, since your realisation of what happened at the time of the Big Bang will give you a glimpse of what happened at the time of the sundering of UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS to permit the creation of individual form to take place." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 5, page 20]

"The intensity of a feeling or thought or mental image is, therefore, the important element in determining its subsequent physical materialization." [Seth/Jane Roberts, Session 525, p.66, Seth Speaks]
