Resonance is a cool concept.
It’s also one of those words that sounds metaphysical, so a lot of people use it without really understanding it.
From a purely scientific standpoint, it refers to the natural frequency of any system.
Like a little kid on a swing.
When he swings his legs at the same “resonance frequency” as the swing, he can swing pretty high.
Singers that can break glass don’t have super powerful voices.
It’s that they can hold the perfect tone, without wavering.
And if that tone is the same vibrational frequency as the glass, then the glass will break.
Same deal when you rub your fingers around the rim of a wine goblet.
When the goblet starts to hum, it’s because the small vibrations of your finger along the top are the same frequency as the wine goblet.
Often times people talk about resonance among people.
Since there are WAY too many variables to even consider, this MUST only be a metaphor.
The resonance you share with your friends when you are all “vibing” is SORT OF like the resonance on a swing set.
But it’s only an approximation.
Thing is though, we understand that as a scientific concept, resonance can be repeated.
Wine glasses, swings, you can “resonate” with them any time you want.
But when we think of “resonating” with people, we assume it’s just one of those rare things.
It either happens or it doesn’t.
But us people, despite our goofy psychological makeup, are still made up of stuff, and although incredibly complicated, that stuff MUST follow the same laws of science that wine goblets and swings have to follow.
Which means if you understand the basic structure of human nature, and human thought, you can RESONATE with a great number of people.
Funny thing is when you are resonating with ONE person, it can be pretty difficult.
But resonating with a BUNCH of people is a lot easier.
See, we humans are PACK ANIMALS.
We naturally feel at home in a group of like minded people.
Which means in a lot of cases, it’s much easier to resonate with a GROUP of people than it is with any individual.
