John’s early work was typical of many acousticians—helping adjust noise and sound in various environments. In 1997, however, his life took an unusual turn because of an extraordinary experience he had in the Great Pyramid King’s Chamber. He had become interested in studying the acoustics of the pyramids, and got funding to pay for some experiments. Shortly before flying to Egypt, he sustained a back injury that put him into extreme pain. Nevertheless, he was determined to carry through with his project. He describes how someone had to carry all his equipment for him, and how he literally crawled into the tomb on his hands and knees. They stretched a membrane across the sarcophagus, and placed a sound system under it. The membrane had sand on it, and they were hoping to replicate a Hans Jenny type experiment, by which the sound would create patterns in the sand. When John’s sound system was turned on under the sarcophagus, the membrane above it revealed Egyptian hieroglyphics. The Egyptian guard, who up until then had been quite indifferent, got very excited seeing these ancient symbols being revealed. Meanwhile, within 20 minutes, John’s back pain left and never returned. At the end of the experiments, he walked out upright, carrying all his heavy equipment. When asked, “How does sound heal?” John said, “To move cells from G1 (ill) to G2 (well), they need rest, nutrition or sound.” Egyptian pyramid experiments
