“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” – Nikola Tesla
“What we have called matter is energy, whose vibration has been so lowered as to be perceptible to the senses. There is no matter.” – Albert Einstein
Tesla said it.
Science proved it.
It is known with 100% certainty that everything, even our body, is composed of energy vibrating at different frequencies.
With that knowledge, it’s reasonable to infer that sound frequencies have an effect on us.
Frequencies affect frequencies, much in the same way mixing one drink with another affects the overall flavor.
There have been various experiments demonstrating the way frequencies interact with, and affect, the physical world — perhaps best known is the science of Cymatics and water memory.
Cymatics illustrates that when sound frequencies move through a particular medium such as water, air, or sand, they directly alter the vibration of matter.
The images below demonstrate how particles adjust to different frequencies.
The Water Memory demonstration illustrates how we can alter the material world with just our intentions.
Dr. Masaru Emoto has performed studies clearly demonstrating how simple intentions through sound, emotions, and thoughts can dramatically shape the way water crystallizes.
Given we know our body holds a vibrational frequency, AND that we’re composed of 70 percent water, it stands to reason that musical frequencies could (and likely do) alter our own vibrational state.
Following a strong endorsement from the International Standards Organization (ISO) in 1953, music was tuned to A=440 Hz as a standard worldwide.
It has been suggested that this pitch is disharmonious with the natural resonance of nature, thus impacting human behavior and consciousness.
There are several well-known conspiracy theories as to why the A=440 Hz frequency was introduced as “standard”, though none more famous than the theory that the Nazi regime readily accepted this pitch because it tested highest in their scientific research into which frequency range was best for inducing fear and aggression.
Whether or not there’s any fact based speculation to the theory, it is interesting to note that several more recent studies suggest tuning music to a frequency of A=432 Hz is ideal.
Mathematics of The Universe
432 Hz is said to be mathematically consistent with the patterns of the universe — said to vibrate with the universe’s golden mean PHI, unifying light, time, space, matter, gravity and magnetism with biology — the DNA code and consciousness.
When atoms and DNA resonate in harmony with the spiraling pattern of nature, our sense of connection to nature is said to be magnified.
The number 432 is also reflected in ratios of the sun, Earth, and moon, as well as the precession of the equinoxes, the Great Pyramid of Egypt, Stonehenge, and the Sri Yantra, and many other sacred sites.
“From my own observations, some of the harmonic overtone partials of A=432hz 12T5 appear to line up to natural patterns and also the resonance of solitons. Solitons need a specific range to form into the realm of density and span from the micro to the macro cosmos. Solitons are not only found in water mechanics, but also in the ion-acoustic breath between electrons and protons.” – Brian T. Collins
Color Spectrum Resonance
The A=432 Hz tune correlates with the color spectrum and chakra system, while the A=440 Hz does not.
The Solar Spectrum & The Cosmic Keyboard
“All of the frequencies in the spectrum are related in octaves, from gamma rays to subharmonics. These colors and notes are also related to our Chakras and other important energy centers. If we are to understand that… Chakras are connected to the Seven Rays of the Solar Spectrum, then the notes and frequencies we use for the same should be the same. A432 Hz is the tuning of the Cosmic Keyboard or Cosmic Pitchfork, as opposed to the A440 Hz modern ‘standard.’ It places C# at 136.10 Hz ‘Om,’ which is the main note of the Sitar in classical Indian music and the pitch of the chants of the Tibetan monks, who tell us, ‘It comes from nature.’” – Dameon Keller
What It Means For Music
Musicians and music lovers prefer music tuned in A=432 Hz as it’s not only more harmonious to the ears, but it also induces a more inward experience felt throughout the body and heart.
Listening to music tuned in A=440 Hz is much more of a mental experience, and is felt at the side of the head which projected outwards.
Audiophiles have noted that music tuned in A=432hz seems to be non-local and can fill an entire room, whereas A=440hz can be perceived as directional or linear in sound propagation.
“The ancients tuned their instruments at an A of 432 Hz instead of 440 Hz – and for a good reason. There are plenty of music examples on the internet that you can listen to, in order to establish the difference for yourself. Attuning the instrument to 432 Hz results in a more relaxing sound, while 440 Hz slightly tenses up to the body. This is because 440 Hz is out of tune with both macrocosmos and microcosmos. 432 Hz, on the contrary, is in tune. To give an example of how this is manifested microcosmically: our breath (0,3 Hz) and our pulse (1,2 Hz) relate to the frequency of the lower octave of an A of 432 Hz (108 Hz) as 1:360 and 1:90.” – innergarden.org
It is up to us to EXPERIENCE the difference between A=440 Hz and A=432 Hz for ourselves before passing judgment. Though, this article will certainly make me think about the frequency of my music moving forward.
