In the book I talked about the number 27.32 being an important frequency to human consciousness. Listen for yourself and decide what you think.
In Chapter 5 there’s a section called “Sphere Music” that talks about the importance of 27.32 as a sound frequency. To refresh your memory, or in case you haven’t read the book yet, here’s a brief recap.
The thesis of the book is that certain numbers—like this one in particular—can’t appear in the Solar System and within ourselves as often as they do by chance. (For a list of what I found, see The Appendix page.)
Back in Chapter 2, in indicated that 109.3 Earths lined up side by side like so many basketballs would fit inside the Sun.
Likewise, and by an amazing coincidence—and of course it’s not a coincidence—109.3 Suns fit across the radius of Earth’s orbit.
I noted in the book that 109.3 is exactly (to four significant digits) 4 x 27.32. This last number is some sort of universal constant, for it appears in far too many places to be random. Somebody had to have constructed or modified the sizes, distances and many other aspects of our Solar System and ourselves to cause this and it’s related numbers (366 and 18.3 are the main ones) to appear so often.
To connect 23.32 to 109.3—and to get rid of that ugly fudge factor of 4—I contend that 27.32 also represents a sound frequency. If you start from a base frequency (pitch) of 27.32 Hz, one octave higher (27.32 x 2) is 54.64 Hz, as shown on the chart.
Up another octave (or 27.32 x 4, since each higher octave is twice the frequency of the lower one), you get 109.3 Hz. So here’s the number we were after, and that factor of 4 just moved the pitch up two octaves.
The Human Connection
So what’s this got to do with us? Why might these frequencies be important? here’s why. A group of scientists from Princeton found that many underground megalithic sites, such as the Hypogeum on the island of Malta have a strong resonant frequency at 110 Hz—so close to our 109.3 as to be sensibly the same. The important point is what happens to our brain/mind in these chambers, or when exposed to this frequency.
According to findings from a UCLA researcher in 2008,
brain activity in a number of healthy volunteers was monitored by EEG through exposure to different resonant frequencies. Their findings indicated that at 110 Hz the patterns of activity over the prefrontal cortex abruptly shifted, resulting in a relative deactivation of the language center and a temporary shifting from left to right-sided dominance related to emotional processing.
There’s a lot more about this in the book, but is this real? Does anything happen when you listen to this frequency?
Listen for Yourself
Calibrating my Kurzweil synthesizer accurately, here’s a sample of what 109.3 Hz would sound like if played by orchestral instruments.
109.3 Hz Drone Sound
Now if you’re just listening to this in an offhand kind of way, miracles ain’t gonna happen. the reason is, all other kinds of ambient sounds from the environment mask the effects of this frequency, so its effects are not felt. So you have to get in a quiet spot, and get yourself into a quiet inner space for it to have any noticeable effect.
What would help here, is something longer and more engaging that would let us sink into this and related tones, as it were. so I wrote the following song, called “Waltzing the Few” to do just that. you still have to get into a meditational space, but it’s a lot easier to do with the music.
To get the full benefits, you should ideally listen to this piece through an audio system with a subwoofer, due to the low frequency content. And then just sit quietly and notice where your attention is. has your mind quieted, stilled? Do you feel more centered and relaxed?
By the way, I should mention that there’s something else going on in this piece.
The Mesopotamian Tunings
Many years ago I discovered the oldest musical tunings known in the world. They come from the extraordinary and mysterious Sumerian civilization that had flowered by 3500 BC. Unlike any modern Western music, these tunings have unexpected beauty and powers – a kind of music that we have completely forgotten.
You can find out more about these tunings, and get the CD Memories of Home recorded using them from my sister site, Light Bridge Music.
These tunings have an extraordinary effect on human consciousness. So it was only natural that I combine one of these seven tunings (Nis Gabri) with octaves that begin with 27.32 and its integral multiples for “Waltzing the Few.”
After listening, let me know how the music affected you.
