Have you heard about the temple of Borobudur and its 432 buddha statues?
This 9th century buddhist temple in Indonesia is the worlds largests and is made up of nine platforms, six square and three round. On the first six, square levels there are 432 buddha statues in total. On the upper three, circular levels there are 72 statues. Please do some searches on this if interested. There are many more interesting numbers in this place. What I have written here is pretty much the exact same as wikipedia says. This info is not hard to find, and you do not have to go to obscure new age pages.
Ok, so the 432 we know of course. Its the famous A note at the center of it all. The 72 is also on the scale and it is a D. A few octaves above the fundamental and deep 9 hz and just below the mystical 144. More on that a bit later.
First lets remember the 72,000 nadis, the energy channels in the human body that according to yogic philosophy distributes the prana. Sort of as the connecting wires between the...
I have always loved music. And I have always despised math. I have also always understood that music is math, but, thankfully, this was a kind of math that I could just do instinctively. I just know the answer. I do not have to think about it at all. Sounds a bit extraordinary, maybe, but I do not think it is. This is simply part of what we call musical talent. You are just born with that sense of timing. I can not express how thankful I am for having been born with this ability. If it were not for that I would have probably given up on music before I had even really begun, and I do not know what my life would have been like if it had gone that way.
Math still messes with my head. I do not feel that I have a natural talent for it at all. It takes a tremendous amount of energy for me to even do basic calculations. But I do not despise math anymore. Now I love it. It has revealed itself to me. In a way, forced itself on me. I now see it has immense beauty. Math is like a language. Numbers...
I saw an interesting little clip on Instagram stories the other day. It was in a crowded bar. Everybody dancing and singing at the top of their lungs to AC/DC`s classic track “Highway To Hell”.
It kind of shook me. I am almost never in bars, so I had kind of forgotten that they exist;P It was a powerful reminder of what the music of our culture is actually doing to us.
It is not my intention to criticise AC/DC or their fans in any way, but fact is that I am convinced that this kind of music, and the RITUAL of parties or concerts with tens or hundreds or thousands of people passionately singing “I`m on a highway to hell”, combined with an aggressive beat and loud, dissonant tones, is highly destructive.
This is an affirmation. And a gathering of people, highly emotional, all focused on this same affirmation, is very very powerful. It is manifestation. This is how magic ritual works! We are manifesting our own highway to hell.
Hell is, of course, whatever we associate with that word, but the...
