Music, Waves, and Harmonics


From Wikipedia:
"Wave–particle duality postulates that all particles exhibit both wave and particle properties. A central concept of quantum mechanics, this duality addresses the inability of classical concepts like "particle" and "wave" to fully describe the behavior of quantum-scale objects. Standard interpretations of quantum mechanics explain this paradox as a fundamental property of the Universe, while alternative interpretations explain the duality as an emergent, second-order consequence of various limitations of the observer. This treatment focuses on explaining the behavior from the perspective of the widely used Copenhagen interpretation, in which wave–particle duality is one aspect of the concept of complementarity, that a phenomenon can be viewed in one way or in another, but not both simultaneously.
The idea of duality originated in a debate over the nature of light and matter that dates back to the 17th century, when competing theories of light were proposed by Christiaan Huygens and Isaac Newton: light was thought either to consist of waves (Huygens) or of corpuscles particles (Newton). Through the work of Max PlanckAlbert EinsteinLouis de BroglieArthur ComptonNiels Bohr, and many others, current scientific theory holds that all particles also have a wave nature (and vice versa).[1] This phenomenon has been verified not only for elementary particles, but also for compound particles like atoms and even molecules. In fact, according to traditional formulations of non-relativistic quantum mechanics, wave–particle duality applies to all objects, even macroscopic ones; but because of their small wavelengths, the wave properties of macroscopic objects cannot be detected.[2]"

Everything we can observe is detectable by a wavelength (light and sound). 

According to science, basic reality (atoms) are not material. They are electro-magnetic. The universe is a vast field of energy, sending, receiving, and transmitting electromagetic waves throughout. Everything therefore is intimately connected. It is believed that the key to time travel is through magnetism; Einstein theorized that if the frequencies of the matter/anti-matter wave period (above) were altered, we could experience space-time travel. He also said that if it were altered to zero time, the entire universe could be experienced in a single moment. 

According to Einstein, physical reality as we experience it is due to us being in a concentrated energy field. Everything around us appears solid because we are also made out of similar wavelengths, vibrating within the bandwidth of our perspective.

All of the elements on the periodic table are differentiated by atomic number. 


The atomic number is the number of protons in the nucleus of the element. Isotopes are varying atoms of a particular chemical element. They have the same number of protons, but a different number of neutrons. Nevertheless, they are still considered the same element. Below is a chart showing the wave form of these isotopes. This is how the elements vibrate and how their vibrations are measured.

All matter is vibrating at a frequency. This translates to all matter being essentially LIGHT and SOUND.

In music, there are 12 notes in the chromatic scale.

 The circle of 5ths shows each key's sharps or flats in order. Below is a depiction of the circle of fifths

Connecting the dots...

This is what the circle of 5ths sounds like. 
It is made out of the dodecagon; (Plato's element of the dodecahedron [universe] contains this shape, as well as Metatron's cube.)

This is how to mathematically map out a dodecagon.
Connecting the dots, we can see how music progression is infinite:

For musicians, here is the notation of the circle of 5ths.

Music has the ability to move people emotionally. We are somehow affected by its sounds. Let's take a look at a song within this context.A song using the chords F, C, G, and D (Heart and Soul in this example) looks like this: 
For an audio clip, click here.  

Any song can be displayed in this way, depending on the chords it uses. Even music is mathematical in nature.

Music is about time and space. Notes are arranged in space (bars), and time (4/4  etc..)  Maybe that's why Einstein and others easily understood it.

"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music. ... I get most joy in life out of music." - Albert Einstein
