The art of living together
Evolutionary paths of life have gone through growth (greed), competition (chaos) and adaptiveness (awareness) to reach the highest point evolutionary harmony: the art of living together.
In nature we see that many species developed in a sustainable way by avoiding competition and finding harmony by being different. A further step is to also help each other. Symbiosis is a manner of interaction where two or more parties benefit, each in a totally different way. Nature is in fact a huge network of symbiotic relationships. Let us have a look at a few through this short German educational film (you do not have to understand German to get the message).
The film shows in a simplified way how symbiosis works among two parties only (man/woman, rhinoceros/bird, fish/sea anemone, fish/lobster). When we observe nature we see relationships that are much more divers and complex. Think of a tree for instance. One of the handicaps of a tree is that it cannot move, hide, run, jump, fly….The tree needs to interact with its environment through advanced measures and relationships to be able to survive. The oldest still living trees on Earth are over 5000 years old! They have lived throughout the entire human written history and development of civilization. They could do that because of symbiosis, the art of living together. The tree has learned for instance to react to seasonal environmental conditions s.a. temperature to drop its leaves. By reducing its wealth is can allow the winter storms to blow through its branches without the dangerous opposition of a crown. The leaves that fall are food for bacteria and fungi, building bricks for ants and shelter for beetles. These use up the dead leaves, helping the decomposition to nurture the soil beneath the tree with the same minerals again that are needed to fulfill a new cycle of growth of leaves in spring. The tree shows that it is willing to live in scarcity and trusts that new times of abundance arrive in a cyclic. It does this through an extraordinary high level of symbiotic balance with its surrounding already for thousands of years.
Birds find shelter and protection on the branches of the tree, and among the leaves, where they poop, adding new nutritious values to the soil. The birds and small animals use the tree’s fruit for food which is why they are also attracted to the tree. The seeds are carried away from the tree in flight by the bird, giving better chance for a new tree to grow elsewhere. Seeds need to be deposited far away from the tree to avoid the lack of sunshine under the summer crown of the parent tree. Trees have hence developed all kinds of solutions for the transportation of their seeds. It is interesting to study the related ingenuity of the mechanics and types of interrelationship with the winds or other species.
The above are just a few examples of symbiosis of a tree and there are many more to be found in nature. When we see bees fly, hovering over flowers and collecting nectar, they also carry the pollen of these flowers around for fertilization. If this did not happen then fruit would not grow on the bushes, animals nor people would have food and we would all die. So even we as human species are included in the symbiosis and depend entirely on its functioning for our own sustainable survival and living life. The recent years have show a large mortality rate and downsize of the population of bees in Europe causing serious concerns among scientists, economists and environmentalists.
A living universe
We tend to think of our modern human selves as a single individual with a high degree of autonomous powers of reflection and educated decision making. In reality we are a small living universe that consists of a harmonic symbiotic composition of and estimated 3 billion different species that populate just one single human body and help it function and stay alive. Without it we would die. There is no evidence of any symbiotic purpose that our species (humankind) has in nature other then our protective domestication of certain animals for food and recreation in exchange for safety for the species. For most other life the human being is a threat. We have seen in the arguments of this series of blog lectures that the causes a reaction in nature of confrontation, adaptation and new symbiosis. When we look around us we have seen that different species are adjusting remarkably well to the dominance of humankind. But we also see threats against humankind with the appearance of new diseases that can wipe us out with the ease of a sigh. Our polluting nature is helping certain aggressive species while we reduce our own competitive and adaptive edge due to the lowering of our defenses.
Our human body is living a life in universe which is much further evolved than our wits, rational and understanding. The symbiosis that composes a human body is of an evolutionary complexity and result of billions of years of development. We have not been adequately aware and hence have not behaved accordingly. No that we are becoming aware we find that we have done a lot of damage already to our own species.
Extremely complex human beings, extremely simple in awareness
The human complexity is extreme in its physical composition and sustainability through symbiosis. Inside us we have the adaptive means that can be enhanced with our adaptiveness and inventiveness. But our conscious awareness is not yet up to the same level to make effective evolutionary choices. Our mentality is often still limited to the basic level of life: growth and competition. Our rationality and way of organizing human societies has been undergoing cyclic experiences between growth, competition, adaptation and symbiosis only with our own selves. We have been acting as if we were a universe of our own, simplifying our systems to our level of understanding and creating simple formats of dependence (eg. standardization of money), symbiosis (s.a. civilizations, city life) or competition (war) for our own processes of understanding life, not living life.
We have been surprised by the aggression of the natural surroundings and universe because of lack of harmonic relations with it. In the process we have not (yet) cared at all for our relationship with our surroundings. We were too busy learning about ourselves, the “I am” experiences of self awareness, individually and as an organized society.
A blind universe of our own
Ever since we became self aware and developed our unique ability to create tools for our own progress we had to come to terms with our inner life forces of growth, competition and awareness building. We discovered how to use fire and started to manipulate our surroundings rather than interacting with it. We learned how to grow crops and how to keep cattle for the sake of food guarantees. We learned how to build houses to be able to live even where we had no caves. We copied from nature everything we needed by trying to create it ourselves in a simplified way.
With our acquired self awareness we felt (and in fact are) unique and in reality entered a new phase of life of unlimited growth, just like the early (A+B) did when it had the entire Earth at its disposal. Without natural competition there is no need for adaptation nor new jumps into evolutionary awareness. So symbiosis with our environment has never even crossed our minds. There was no need. We simply needed our wit for unlimited growth not for competition or adaptation. Entire civilizations have starved and disappeared like that. The only natural competition we had was the human being itself. We would protect our basic values through territorial behavior just like aggressive animals would do. We would keep aggressors out and become aggressor ourselves to expand our inner growth desire.
Today 7 billion people and a single planet Earth that shows that we are reaching the limits of our growth. Our awareness has now, since a few decades, made us aware of what we are facing. We see in our newest generations a new tendency of growing awareness that goes beyond our systems of education. It is as if our species is also inside, in our harmonic sub-conscience reacting. We need to modify our current perception of progress to have renewed sustainable expectations as a species.
Following the cycles of life also in our human complexities we see that when growth is blocked life reacts. In order to keep going either we find our equals and compete or, with lack of competition, a new jump in awareness occurs. So growth will than be again triggered by new understandings. This allows us also to organize differently taking also symbiosis into account. Symbiotic thinking is already inherent to our system. We only have long not been aware of it, or used it to our benefit. From an evolutionary perspective we ARE symbiosis. From a perspective of consciousness we are about to find out.
Spirituality is our inner built up of life through harmonic patterns of music. This gives us the potential level of understanding life from a learning perspective of billions of years. It is all within us already as a huge universal symphony that sounds great and resonates with our surroundings with its musicality. Spirituality is our deep inner awareness that has not yet been rationalized by our levels of understanding. It is already present for us to discover. We need to have a challenge of adaptation to use our abilities to understand and modify our behavior and structures for a next level of symbiotic life or further growth of our species. We do this over and over again until we reach again our limitations. Or we encounter other creatures in their own phase of growth in the unique space that they created for themselves. From a universal life’s point of view there is no reason at all for the human being to prevail over time. There are sufficient variables that can make the human species just a temporary issue among the many variants. Our own lack of timely adaptation could be a reason for our species to eventually disappear. Self awareness and our learning process could well be too slow, maybe due to self imposed simplified systems for simulated growth (money, hierarchies, robots, etc) that block our natural evolution and makes us unaware of the need for adaptation. Another variable is the possibility of other species to develop better competitive novelties that eventually overrule the human dominance and breaks our complexity back down into more simplified fractals, allowing the other species to evolve fast through their own phase of unlimited growth.
It now makes sense
Now the musical patterns shown by Pythagoras, Galilei, Kondratieff, Tomes, etc all make sense. They are all patterns of life itself in search for harmony in the complexity of growth, competition, adaptation and symbiosis acting multi-dimensionally together. We humans are all part of this with the great ability to understand yet the great handicap that our awareness is still limited. We urgently need to modify systems that were created by ourselves and that tend to destroy us rather than bring us forward at this point. We have a reached a point that we need to choose for sustainable progress ourselves by letting go of some of our old beliefs and accept new ones. Evolution now also evolves at the levels of the consciousness, not just material relationships. We have reached an important crossroad of our sustainable continuity and the only one responsible for the future are we ourselves.
What will the future bring?
From a human perspective the complexity of life is huge and we have reached a point in which we need to face a particular evolutionary reality. If we don’t then we destroy ourselves. If we do we enter a new phase of adaptation of our own selves and the possibility to enter into a new harmonic relationship with our environment. Symbiosis can lead to new periods of growth, not just in size of humankind but also in understanding life and the capability to sustain ourselves better by knowing and acting accordingly.
My own model for society, Sustainocracy, is simply a working evolutionary step in the field of human symbiosis among ourselves and with our local environment. Sustainocracy “understands” the 4 realities of life (growth, competition, adaptiveness and symbiosis) from a spiritual truth of harmonic relationships and essentials of life. Introducing it into our societal structures will step up our life’s expectations and sustainable evolutionary progress. Even the old obsolete systems of power and dominance have their place and can continue, evolving over time instead of collapsing now into crises and chaos. Right now, as said before in the world of self consciousness, it is simply a matter of choice. The correct choice survives to live, the wrong choice no one will ever know or worry about because it disappears into history and is forgotten.
Human beings are a complex evolved species that stepped from the original musicality of growth into competition and through adaptiveness into a high level of living symbiosis. From a perception point of view we are learning about these phases, developing our awareness and consciousness as cycles occur and show us the consequences of our status in life. These reoccur over and over again during our individual life time from birth up to death, through awareness building and consciousness. We are conceived through the harmonic combination of A+B into the living (A+B). This starts to grow through the different phases of our evolution and eventually as a true fractal expelled in birth from our mother. We then continue the phase of growing up, first protected, then in the world of competition and adaptation to grow up into adulthood with the continuous confusion between growth, competition, adaptation and symbioses.
We do not educate our young to live life. We teach them to effectively grow and compete among each other without showing them why (maybe because “society works that way”), nor their relationship with the surroundings or their own growing processes with non conflictive options through adaptation and symbioses.
In our human organization processes as a community we find the same four levels occur. We now face our limitations of growth due to the finite space and resources on our planet. This brings us again as evolutionary species on a natural crossroad to find a new harmony with ourselves and our surroundings. Evolution shows what comes next and in our case the variables are huge. We combine growing levels of awareness with the 4 realities of life that each are applied consciously to our sustainable human progress.
- Symbiosis brings balance, stability and protection
- Growth is a natural drive of any species
- Competition introduces a selection process through crises in growth
- Adaptiveness searches for new areas of non-confrontational freedom
And after adaptation a new phase of symbiosis can start. It is up to humankind to make the best of this knowledge for short term wellness and long term sustainability of the species. It is a matter of educated choices for us with an open adaptive relationship with our surroundings.
Humankind started with evolutionary building blocks that just came alive through harmonic relationships. Then we entered a phase of unaware competition which was followed by the phase of aware competition and now we are finalizing an era in which we learn to stop competing and live life consciously. I call this a quantum leap in human evolution and maybe even in universal evolution.
A small, self aware choice for the human being, a giant leap for humankind.
The power of being different
Competition produces a natural chaos in which the outcome is unpredictable. One can always find one’s equal or better. In a competitive environment crisis is a constant where species have to deal with. The duality of attraction and avoidance get species to grow apart and develop themselves around new and differentiated values. A new step is introduced into the evolutionary path and nature of life for survival and growth: the talent of being different.
Being different avoids the confrontation and develops a unique positioning that occupies a very specific spectrum of harmonic relationship with the environment. Instead of conflict the non-conflict is enhanced. In the world of insects this has resulted in a remarkable variety of species that can coincide peacefully in a small place. They are different in everything you can imagine: size, colors, walking, flying, digging, swimming abilities, type of food, sexuality, reproduction, habitat, etc etc. Being different gives better perspectives to survival than the law of the strongest.
Have a look at this short impression about butterflies .
The unique combination of growth, competition and differentiation gives rise to an impulse of new levels of awareness. Being different can contain an evolutionary element of chance of course when growth is suddenly enhanced at the time that a species finds no competition for some time. It can also develop through higher levels of awareness around competitive instruments that enlarge the chances of winning. One can become unique in predator abilities. Diversification can then again display many variations of “being different” as we can see around us nature. One can be different by escaping from confrontation (running or flying away, jumping, hiding, etc), avoiding it through divers techniques (camouflage, size, speed, poison, spikes, etc) or winning them (strength, teamwork, etc) through smartness. Our imagination can run freely to invent effective differentials of being unique. We can also look at nature around us to see millions of years of inspirational development and unique levels of innovational excellence. Life itself, with such interactive parameters as growth, competition and unique adaptiveness is the best living lab of inspiration available in the universe.
The inevitable next step in evolution is self awareness. This is probably the most complex contribution to life’s consciousness. Self awareness is a logical consequence when competition, fear, multiple sensory experiences, crises, adaptiveness, growth, etc all form part of the complexity of a single living specimen. The step from intuitive reflection and action to waking up into self reflective awareness is then just a matter of time and opportunity.
The possibility to make yes/no choices is key for survival in a complex world of spontaneous and purpose driven interaction. The sum of reflective impulses from many different harmonic senses, that all interact simultaneously with the environment, gives rise to the development of powerful processing powers. The choices become increasingly complex. The diversity of the senses (s.a. smell, taste, vision, touch, sound and basic inner symphonies of harmonic molecular frequencies) each produce reactive impulses that can coincide but also be conflicting. The need to come to terms with multiple inner feelings is the basis for a new kind of decision making. When harmonic frequencies were external at first, coming to life through material interaction and bonding, now the quest for harmony is inside.
This is the key to spirituality, the inner quest for harmonic meaning, connecting us in awareness with the musical reality of the universe, inside with outside.
At certain points in life these decisions are made at a self conscious level. The most advanced species are also the most adaptive in a competitive world. Self awareness is just one more instrument for improved chances. A self aware species does not just react to the environment, it will also analyze its best options and make choices.
Self aware analysis introduce the inner conflict of right and wrong. This is an inner spiritual quest for meaning around the “why”. Food, safety, health, abundance, wellness and knowledge are the self aware essentials of harmonic continuity. Procreation and fear for death is added when death is a factor to be taken into account.
Death gives room to new diversification and evolution and hence becomes an engine to life. Life in itself does not need death as we have seen from the musical appearance of life under the right circumstances. Death did not exist yet. Death still did not exist when growth developed the need for collapse and fractal divisions. It was a mere continuation and re confirmation of life itself. Death appears as a key element of the evolution of self awareness. Growth would not be possible without death as life would come to a hold when growth becomes impossible due to limitations of the environment. The quest for harmonic relationships introduced new conditions into life and one was the appearance of “disappearance” of the obsolete. Death is a kind of cleaning up of the redundant which gives rise to a new cycle of life in a new field of harmonic interaction. Life is always in search for balance by creating new harmonic relationships that upset the old harmonics. Death is a necessary part of that. Life came first and death was introduced to make life’s evolution possible. It was a natural consequence. Life always conquers death, the good always wins from evil because life made death possible and death makes life continue.
As we stated before “life = awareness”. But this equation is alive too. In its simples form at molecular levels it just represents the musical interaction of specific frequencies. Matter becomes aware of matter. In its most complex form at self aware level of multiple sensory interaction “awareness = life”, meaning that the level of interpretation of life induces new life. Awareness is hence a life science that needs to be leveraged to the utmost layers of rational interpretation in order to provide a new living chance of our human species.
We see today that our human population on the globe has expanded to such an extend that we have lost our harmonic relationship with our environment. We have organized our human life only from a growth and competitive perspective after we became self aware of our unique and dominant abilities to make our surroundings instrumental to our abundance. Only in recent decennia we realize that the evolutionary criteria that surround us also apply to us as a species. Our self aware dominance for over 250.000 years is at the same time our vulnerability. Time has come for an evolutionary step in human interaction with ourselves and our environment if we want to survive evolution itself.
This brings us to another evolutionary technique that is abundantly present in our natural environment and that we need to learn to apply too. The next blog lecture will deal with that.
Competition and Fear
When growth is diverse and abundant in a limited space there come a moment in time that growth is not possible anymore. Species address the same particles for growth and meet in the field. Co-existence is never a problem when there is abundance to feed. But when feeding coincides in the same space chaos appears with the development of “competition”.
The encounter for the same nutritious values develops all kinds of techniques of competition among species. For the first time evolution is dealing with “shortahes”. The competition is of Darwinistic nature, the law of the largest, fastest, strongest, etc. It is pure confrontational as it deals with the same purpose of growth for survival and the food is the same. Have a look at this impressive battle among species at the Kruger Park to see the diversity of competition, fear, courage and interaction at work.
Harmonic relationships between elements keep life forms in one piece as long as they eat. Yet competition introduces all kinds of new variables that create new selection and evolutionary criteria. Species develop gradually all kinds of differentiated ingenuities to survive.
This introduces a totally new field of competence for life. While the early growth part dealt just with “life” in a lower, simple level of harmonic awareness, the competitive part deals with “survival” introducing new levels of awareness. Survival has a totally new array of evolutionary impulses. Pure confrontation has a natural selection among the sorts. These can develop the strong competitive edges better because the weaker ones get eliminated. Competition introduces also new types of harmonics based on different, counter types of frequencies. While previously attraction was a thriving force now a new element evolves too: fear. The very first levels of fear are simple dis harmonic functions that get species to go out of each other’s way rather than wanting to coincide. When encounters over the same valuable, like food, happen, the species try to outwit themselves with the simple evolutionary harmonic means available to them.
The awareness has develop duality for first time in the form of “like” and “like not”, “safe” and “danger”. Two “likes” may form protective groups and “like with not like” go out of each other’s way unless an encounter is necessary for a very strong reason.
Competition always tries to find a new balance in search of growth. Growth is suddenly not the only parameter for success anymore. Fractal divisions develop enhancements gradually that improve the natural chances for survival. New detection methods appear allowing the species to be more aware of the environment where food and enemies co-exist. Harmonic frequencies were maybe enough for awareness in the most simple forms of (A+B) life, now new frequencies are being introduced in more complex manners. Species develop reactions to light and dark, different colors, sounds, touch, tastes, etc.
Single and multi-sensorial interaction with the environment becomes essential for survival. Species differentiate further and try to grow as they compete. These variables together provide enough elements for extreme diversification. But even diversification is not enough for life. Life needs to grow and enhance further. If competition is danger and confrontational what can solve this issue to produce growth again?
The next blog will tell us.
Life = Awareness
At one stage in my blogging years I asked you if awareness is added to the universe by us as rationally thinking life format? Or has it always existed and are we simply discovering it through self awareness and consciousness of realities? I asked this when we discussed the 5th dimension of consciousness.
In blog lecture “secretes of life 6” I show that awareness is already there and creates life under the right circumstances. This answers our question. The universe is “aware”. Some people call this awareness “God”. It is interesting to attribute a music reality to this awareness which at the least gives a sympathetic twist to the issue of “believing”. When we elaborate on this from a human perspective “belief” can connect us to the universal harmonics by triggering our inner molecular state to connect to universal patterns. We may not be self conscious about this but do feel the comfort of the harmonics as if things “are right”.
We will come to our own human selves as complex self aware species but first we need to go back a few billions of years when the first harmonic A and B’s found each other to create the first living (A + B)’s on Earth. The harmonic relationship becomes an attractive minuscule element for other minuscule elements that are aware of its “musical” attraction through minute frequencies. (A+B)’s may be attracted to unstable A’s and B’s that enter in a random state of temporary harmony and get absorbed by the original (A+B). The chances that this happens is now very large because (A+B) is stable in its attractive frequency. The (A+B) become (AAAAA+BBBBB) in a steady growth pattern.
Growth then shows an exponential curve and cannot be sustained as growth can not continue unlimited. It reaches a point of collapse which I refer to as the “point of singularity”. Two options occur:
- the species collapses and falls apart into smaller fragments, some unstable some maybe stable, or
- the species shows fractal growth patterns where many exponentially growing (AAAAA+BBBBB) combinations break down into many stable (A+B)’s again.
These patterns we see in nature around us all the time.
Evolution and Differentiation
Another possibility could be that (A+B) meets (C+D) and finds a harmonic combination that fuses them into a new living minuscule species (ABCD). The harmonic frequency emission of this new species is different than the individual frequencies of the original parts. It will have new properties of growth and harmonic attraction. In the same way the combination could be (ACDB), (BADC), (DBAC) etc where each of the combinations shows unique properties, different than the others. Diversification in life hence starts at the same time as organic growth. Each of the initial diversifications become the starting point of its own line of evolution through growth patterns.
So growth is the first basic key to life and awareness. It is explained by the “hunger” of frequencies to “eat” those that are harmonic to them. Food is hence a purpose of living life and even we as human beings are attracted unconsciously to food all the time. What we see at the human level of complexity that we try to overcome this by an evolutionary issue of letting go of the permanent sense of hunger through trust in our ability to create abundance at any time. Hoarding, territorial protection, over feeding, etc are hence logical conditions of our earliest life’s origins resident in our own atomic living system.
We can now comfortably say that the prime purpose that makes the molecules of living species stay together is growth through feeding harmonically charged (inferior) substances. This we call life from a lower level of consciousness. Feeding does not require self awareness either, just the automatic sensing of the right growth particles. Since growth and feeding requires at one point the active movement it uses up energy. Growth and food hence developed abundantly where natural energy (sunlight) was abundantly available, directly or indirectly.
This short film of Cristobal Vila illustrates it nicely.
For a very long time life evolved like this in an environment of microscopic life forms that evolved in complexity through harmonic differentiation, growing and feeding, falling apart or establishing fractal growth patterns, in a wide open planetary space.
This gets us to the next evolutionary step explained in the next blog.
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
