This is a subject that I have been purposely avoiding for some time now, although I always knew that I would have to talk about it sooner or later. It is a very sensitive subject to many people. Many have a lot invested in it, both emotionally and financially.
It is also slightly embarrassing for me because when I first heard about it I bought into it right away, without doing proper research. I was already deep into the 432 theory so when I heard about 528 and the so-called solfeggios I just jumped on it and started making music. Happy to have found even more magical frequencies.
As with everything I am interested in, though, no matter how much I know I keep doing research. So when I finally started looking seriously into the 528 thing it did not take long before I realised that a lot of things did not add up…
But first, let me talk a little bit about what is right about these frequencies!
They are definitely interesting numbers in relation to the matrix of creation. If you are familiar w...
Did you know that the numbers 3,6 and 9 start a Fibonacci sequence that contain the number 432?
Check it out; 3,6,9,15,24,39,63,102,165,267,432… and on and on, of course… Pretty cool, right?
In case you did not know, the Fibonacci sequence is as significant to creation as the 3,6 and 9, the 432 and all the other numbers related. As I always say; do some research!
According to Joseph Campbell there are 432,000 years between creation and the great flood in the babylonian texts. The same story in the bible only lasts for 1656 years, but curiously, 1656 years add up to 86,400 weeks. According to campbell, that is… I have not bothered to do all the math myself. 86,400 is of course twice as much as 43,200. Just as 864 is one octave above 432.
Keep in mind that Joseph Campbell was not into music or healing or anything like that. He was simply an historian and researcher of myth and mysticism.
I have mentioned this in a previous post, but I will repeat it here simply because I think it is so cool!
I get this question quite a bit, and the answer is; yes, of course! I mean, good luck avoiding it!
If it was dangerous to listen to music tuned to 440 hz and equal temperament, we would all be in big trouble since this is the case with the vast majority of music we hear every single day.
Is it bad for us in any way?
The answer must be yes, but it is highly unlikely that one song will make us drop dead or anything like that.
For overall wellbeing the human body needs to be in a state of harmony. Anything that is dissonant will cause some sort of problem, but the human body is an amazing piece of technology!
For example there are people who eat nothing but junk food their entire lives and still they can make it to 50-60 years of age. They dont look good, and im sure they dont feel good, but they are alive. The body is still functioning. At a bare minimum, at least.
You have to decide your own degree of wellbeing, so to speak.
We are surrounded by dissonant sounds all the time. We cant avoid...
