In World 202, a nuclear bombing caused a global syndrome that led to people experiencing premonitions based on sounds emitted by living organisms’ chakras. These energy centers play a crucial role in our physical and emotional well-being and can be used for communication. This led to the realization that sound can be a powerful way for humanity to connect with each other, regardless of their social, cultural, or religious background.
Listening to the sounds around us can help us understand and relate to each other on a deeper level, leading to a more fulfilling life. It emphasizes the significance of paying attention to the world around us and using sound as a tool to build a more unified and connected society.
What if …
sound is a way of humanity?
