The truly remarkable discovery of powerful harmonic relationships between the elements based on musical patterns is of course of highly significant. Even more significant is the discovery that these same patterns are present in life cycles. This gives us a clue that there is a relationship between the phenomena of life and the material harmonic relationships. Are we close to discovering what “????” is? Let us recap.
We have seen that molecules vibrate with oscillating molecules that move in different, non linear patterns. We also have seen that atoms and molecules together have + ve and – ve polarity that allows them to attach to other molecules under certain circumstances. Water dissolves elements in such a way. We have now seen that there are also very special frequencies active in the universe that have very special harmonic properties. At a large scale they determine how planets move around a sun or galaxies behave. At a minute scale the same happens at atomic and subatomic level.
It is not difficult to make the step that there are very special situations in which two molecules are not attracted to each other through the negative and positive forces but through the harmonic frequencies of their behavior. We have seen that only in very special circumstances molecules combine and even in more special circumstances they are attracted to each other through frequencies. These special frequencies (of the musical type) are emitted at random by the molecules in vibrating mode. Only in very exceptional cases two molecules of certain different elements get into a state of unstable harmonic musical frequency at the same time AND in each other’s proximity. They then create a bond. Unique in this bond is that this combination of matter on its own has a stable harmonic frequency. The different elements do not fuse but stay together in a more definite form. These bonding frequencies of course coincide with what we consider “good music”. The type of the 34560 cycle for instance proven to have a specially strong bonding nature. The definite form that appears through the combination has now unique properties due to the combined harmonic frequency that produced a new, stable one. This situation of frequency stability is key because the harmonics that was first an attraction by simple multilevel coincidence is now one that is inherent to the stable property of the new combination of elements. These properties are of interaction with the environment through stable harmonic cycles.
So trying to explain it in other words and ready for scientific observation and verification, is the following:
- We have two or more different elements (say A and B for the sake of simplicity) in a free floating environment (s.a. water) for easy encounters and under special, optimal environmental conditions,
- Both A and B show normal molecular movements with standard diversity,
- A and B get excited by the environment and emit at particular random moments frequencies from the range of the harmonic musical patterns (Ray Tomes),
- A and B connect when these randomly produced frequencies coincide and attract each other.
- They fix in a harmonic relationship that is not fusing but combining the elements. In a way they form now a mini galaxy of two elements in a stable, harmonic relationship.
- The frequency of this (A + B) combination is unique and stable within the range of musical harmony.
- This means that it is not by chance combining anymore with other elements with the right harmonic emission but on purpose through the attraction of these special frequencies.
A + B is now combined through an “????” that has been identified as harmonic frequencies that are attracted to each other within the musical range of tones. The unique attraction properties of these frequencies make A aware of B and B aware of A. They then stick together in a special (A + B). While A is only aware of B and B of A when their random frequencies are synchronized the chances of this happening among the right elements and in the right circumstances is very small. The resulting (A+B) combination however is different. The stable frequency combination that binds the temporary “aware” elements into a fixed format stays stable creating awareness through emission of frequencies that can be “heard” by other temporary and fixed synchronized elements.
(A+B) starts to interact with its surroundings based on these special frequencies looking for new bondage among elements. It has assumed the very first mission of life: Autonomous Growth.
Have we found “life”? Yes! Life is the shaping of elementary “living” material combinations through bondage of frequencies of a highly specific range that is identical throughout the universe. So life in reality is music: A + B + music = (A+B) alive. The musical frequencies make A and B “aware” of each other and in certain circumstances also attracted to each other. So the musicality of molecules and the universe creates (musical) awareness in certain circumstances. This means that life appears under specific circumstances of the environment interacting with molecules that can move around in a stirring environment to produce appropriate encounters and vibrating according some exact part of the musical tones.
Life in reality is musical awareness and is latently present in the entire universe, always ready to be activated.
Let us now challenge all scientific labs in the world to prove this by producing the first elementary living building blocks through planed human intervention. It will be interesting to see how finally “awareness”, the line of “to be” in the model of human complexities comes first in life before “to do”. Once we come alive the “to do” feeds the “to be”. We will elaborate that further in subsequent blogs. Before we do that we now know how life comes together. Now we will look at the four key phase of evolution in the next few college blogs.
The universe, cycles and music
Back in the last century (the 20th) different people at different moments in time picked up the studies of Pythagoras, Galilei, and other specialists of sound such as Kepler, starting experimenting themselves with cross relationships around cyclic patterns.
One of these people was Ray Tomes in Australia who was studying economic cycles in the 70’s making use of this new instrument called “the computer”. He found a particular time rhythm in these cycles. The wave patterns in economic trends were useful for making forecasts and getting insight in the ups and downs of economies with crises, recessions, depression and strong new impulses. Tomes found a striking similarity between the economic cycles and the cyclic movements that could be observed in the universe. For some reason the number 35.6 years kept re appearing and so did fractions and multiples of it.
I already wrote about the economic cycles of Kondratieff to put them into relationship with my own model of human complexities. It was for me the first evidence that there was a relationship between cyclic patterns of economics and human patterns of collective awareness.
Tomes found that the Kondratieff cycle of 54 years could also be related to his own discovered cycle of 35.6 in a ratio 2:3. Funnily enough we have seen this ratio in music too. This is the remark Ray Tomes made in his report:
Then it struck me. These fractions of 35.6 years were in fact frequencies of 4:5:6:8 which is exactly a major chord in music. Also, the shorter cycles turned out to be exactly in the proportions of the just intonation musical scale plus a couple of back notes (E flat and B flat if we are in the key of C).
Tomes went further and found harmonic relationships that could be observed in space. A specially significant one was the number 345600 which shows the harmonic relationship between all elements in space through distance. In fact it shows that our atoms, planets, solar systems, galaxies, etc are all related through musical patterns with the number 345600 as one standing out of all of them. In fact, what Tomes interpreted was that the entire universe is one giant musical instrument. Read more about the finding of Ray Tomes here….
To understand how harmonics divide space as well as time, consider a stringed instrument. It can oscillate at a fundamental frequency which has just one wave in the string. It can also oscillate at the 2nd harmonic. In that case both the length of the string and the time of the oscillation are divided by 2. Likewise, if we could get the 34560 harmonic going in the string it would divide both the length and oscillation period by 34560.

It is of course extremely interesting that there is a definite relationship between wavelength frequencies of music and the entire composition of our material universe on minute and infinite levels. With the relationship between economics and the human complexities we see that the exact same frequencies also apply to human behavior, wars, birth patterns, climate changes, weather, recessions, disasters, the evolution of our planets, the coming and going of civilizations and the influence on our own biological and organizational systems.
In the next blog lecture we will try to piece things together.
The magic of frequencies
We have observed until now that matter moves and relates to matter through different polarity (-ve and +ve) and with the assistance of substances like water that is a carrier. We also know now that energy interacts with these moving atoms through the level of excitement that allows them to bond or not. This is interesting, still it does not explain life (yet). For that we have have to introduce a new variable: frequencies.
To illustrate the world of frequencies I am going to use the passionate environment of musicality. We all have particular feelings about music and it often plays a significant role in our lives, especially when we enter our world of emotions. We enjoy certain music and feel it to affect our mood and emotions. Music is considered by most of us as a kind of expressive language that vibrates through our being with its tones and lyrics.
But why do we like music so much?
What makes us like certain tones and not the other frequencies? These questions were asked also by Pythagoras back in 500BC. Pythagoras lived in the ancient Greece. He had a special passion for numbers and was convinced that most of the miracles of life could be explained through application of mathematics and the usage of whole numbers, the integers
0 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5 – 6 – 7 – 8 – 9.
When he asked himself the “like” question of tones he started to study the frequencies that musical instruments and human voices produce and especially those that we enjoy most. He came to the remarkable conclusion that the tones of our music ladder (do – re – mi – fa – sol – la – si and again do) have a unique frequency relationship. It can be obtained by pressing a vibrating musical string at a particular tension and point. The frequency patterns appear to relate to each other when producing the different tones.
This was very remarkable. So the tones that find a liking in our ears are all related to each other in ratios. They could be calculated through ratios of 1:2 and 2:3 producing fragmented tones between do and the next do. Each “do” was represented by the next integer and the fraction in between by a particular division that represented the harmonic relationship of frequencies that could be obtained by applying the ratios found. The problem Pythagoras encountered was that his experiments led him to awareness but not quite to the solution because his maths got him to produce musical cycles that were always off by a little bit. This became known as the Pythagoras comma, a small adjustment required in the tone to get it right.
It still took over 2000 years for a new famous character to pick up the challenge that Pythagoras had initiated. It was Galilei, the father of the famous Galileo Galilei, who solved the enigma of the Pythagoras comma. He concluded that the best frequencies were in the following proportions (source: Ray Tomes, 1996):
do re mi fa so la ti do
1 9/8 5/4 4/3 3/2 5/3 15/8 2
This is very interesting. When we adjust these number to represent a whole number we get the following:
24 27 30 32 36 40 45 48
When we look closely we see relationships ( eg 24/30/36 = 4/5/6 and 32/40/48 = 4/5/6) recurring all the time. This means that every note relates to “do” with three mayor cords in ratios 4/5/6.
Wow! This is remarkable and exciting. It was assumed by all these people that these optimal musical ratios had a significance in the universe and our own living selves. But what were these relationships?
We will see in the next blog lecture
First key to life
The miracle of life
The fact that we are alive is considered a miracle and this certainly is felt that way. We have not been able to produce life in a laboratory despite all the knowledge we have to manipulate it. We consider life to be divine yet find the strange paradox to behave and organize ourselves in a life destructive way. Climate changes, air pollution, irresponsible usage of natural resources, destruction of our habitat and the disappearance of species, show us an era that is being labeled as the anthropocene. This refers to the era in which the human species leaves such a scar on the face of our planet and among nature that it will be visible for as long as this planet exists. I have written already about this era . I also wrote about a less visible, but even more worrying era, the genetic anthropocene. This is the time period in which we affected our DNA in such a way (with cancers, illnesses, physical and behavioral distortions) that it will also have negative effects on the development of our species for many, many, many generations to come.
The question we face is whether this is normal in evolutionary sense or abnormal? Is there a logic to be found? And what will this do to us? Are we a natural threat to our own evolutionary selves? Or is all this destructive behavior part of “the bigger plan”? Will there eventually be an evolutionary wake up call that will make us understand our own selves and get us to restructure our societies and systems? Or will we become an historic educational point of reference for any future self aware species that shows “how NOT to do it?”. Even if we are aware of our dangers, what will inhibit or facilitate us to implement our awareness to avoid disaster?
If this will happen what will be the trigger? When will this happen, if it happens at all? Can we predict our own future?
Are we unique?
Are we talking about one human species or are we several? Can we talk about differentiation through awareness like we do biological qualities or differences? Can awareness be culturally affected as an evolutionary trigger or blockage? Is awareness coded genetically or in some other way? And if so how would it affect the relationships between human beings and its surroundings, our evolution and our systems of education and societal cohesion? How powerful or necessary is understanding life?
To come to answers to these questions we need an understanding to what life and awareness is in reality. Let us start with the very big initial question:
what is the missing link?
The missing link
When referring to the “missing link” you may automatically think about the missing evolutionary shackle between monkey life and human beings. I am not referring to this because now we know that we are the competitive remains of various parallel human like life forms that evolved and coexisted over time in the last 2 to 4 million years. We represent a very complex highly competitive form of life that is at the same time very delicate as well as powerful.
The missing link that I refer to is what makes “matter + energy” come alive? If I throw a pile of dirt in a jar and put sunlight on it there is little chance that it will come alive. There has to be a special “something”, a trigger that puts A + B together into a living something. So life is:
Matter + Energy + ????
Why would a bird that flies through wind and rain stick together with all its different molecules and not fall apart? Because it has “????”! We (humans) have “????” too and so does an amoeba, an insect, a bacteria, a fish, a plant, etc. When “????” disappears the molecules fall apart again to re-integrate with our environment until a new wave of the gluing “????” comes around, unites some of these molecules again together with others and creates a new life form. Until that dies too, keeping the cycle of usage of materials going around for ever, allowing maybe some progressive evolution through this getting together (life) and breaking up (death) events.
When we think of it we ourselves consist probably of matter that has been used over and over again in all kinds of life forms over time and history. Some of our molecules may well have been of a dinosaur at one time and most certainly of that chicken and salad that we ate last week. We may have molecules that were at one time part of the bodies of Michael Angelo, Jesus Christ, Jane D’Arc or Jack the Ripper. We are in fact each a little bit of everything that has occurred on Earth and ……even before Earth.
So from a pure material point of view we are just the same as our environment, assembled together in a particular unique life form for some reason, just like all the other species that surround us. Just because we have this miraculous “????”.
It is of course fun to realize that we are able to reflect about it and can ask ourselves the question:
why? and what is this “????”
In the next blog lecture we will look into matter first because it has very important characteristics that we need to become aware of in order to take the next steps in our quest for the “Secrets of Life”.
Jean-Paul Close (May 2013)
On May 14th 2013 I introduced my views on the musical origins of life. The secrete of living life in an evolutionary, self conscious way, is lectured during my open, public evening colleges in Eindhoven. I did this today together with opera singer Irma Lohman, whose talent could be used to prove my points on how life really is and how we can perceive and use it once aware.
The next few blogs will introduce these views to you. They will of course be received as usual by some with the traditional amount of skepticism and refusal influenced also by the opposition from the reigning dogma’s that surround us and that educate us every day. In a way we live still in a world in which the “Earth is flat and the center of the universe” according to the ruling self interests of old remaining hierarchies. These old dogma’s and their institutionalized protectors are gradually disappearing into history, sometimes replaced with new ones. They all leave us behind with the atrocities of their commitment to a lie out of powerful self interest. It shows how we evolved over time as a species through a continuous learning process, combating our own, self imposed monsters in our quest for the universal truth and understanding.
You may also find that the route to absolute freedom comes with new responsibilities and an inner and outer confrontation with old beliefs that have been “sold” to us as sacred without dispute, often at the expense of doom and punishment. It is up to you to determine whether you are ready for this challenging.
I will deal with:
- The origin of life
- Harmonic relationships
- Each of the four phases of life
- Current crises and their evolutionary solutions
- Our own evolutionary state, risks and opportunities
- Life phases and education
I have decided to do this through this blog in order to be able to connect to multimedia on the web for the re-enforcement of my messages. The blog also offers the possibility for you to reflect back.
We are facing a quantum leap that for the individual is an intellectual choice and for society an unprecedented evolutionary challenge and significant historical leap forward.
