Meteors ionize the air (because of the high heat) but do not produce
significant EM radiation. Interestingly, meteor ionization trails are
used to bounce radio waves over the horizon.

Gurdjieff lived well into the 20th century. He was certainly aware of
radio (!). Now, if the (non-existant) EM radiation from the meteors
has such a profound effect on the human body, how about radio waves?
What does he have to say about them? Hmmmm?

By the way, don't let this silliness get in the way of your hearing
Gurdjieff's music. Terrific stuff.
