Doc Starz ; Also, you had asked me previously about gender and growth in crystallography. Essentially you are correct, crystal do not grow the same way that organic life does, but crystallographers would say (claim) that they do still grow and in a way they do. Natural crystals tend to come in three genders types male, female and both - gender is determined by spin or orientation of formation, it may be possible that quasi crystals like Penrose's may behave differently in relation to what we were talking about previosuly and they might meet the criteria you mentioned

Yes, I think so - good observation. Think of this axis extending from the fundamental, through Partial 9 and on up to include all multiples of Partial 9, since they too would synchronize with the same key locations on the fundamental.
Crystallization is a process of spin alignment or polarization of the constituent elements. Different elements emphasize different harmonics in their atomic structure, which would then align around Partial 9 into particular geometries.
Since life is made up of 12% carbon-12 and 86% water, the crystallization of life is a gradient between these two atomic geometries. The geometry of carbon is apparent closest to the resonant heart and spine while the geometry of water becomes strongest in the limbs.
Thank you for the link. Crystal symmetry and cymatic symmetry are based on the same laws.

"C-Axis" of a crystal?

Richard Merrick; As I understand what you're saying, what you are looking for is a universal model of music perception that explains and predicts movement between two tones, intervals or chords. This would tell you the "relationships between the chords" and "why the transforms are doing what they are doing."
The model is the interference function described in my book, f(h) = h^2 / ((Phi^h) / sqrt(5)) and, more specifically, how it reflects and repeats over an octave. The transform you're looking for would use this formula to calculate the averaged change in velocity from one chord to the next using the two models on pages 124 and 126 respectively.
The attached Excel spreadsheet demonstrates how this can be used as a bijective transform between any two chords. For a given key and harmonic center (supertonic), chords are assigned tension percentage values from the table, then the difference between pairs to calculate an overall increase or decrease in tension. This does not correspond with the typical idea of tonic as resting, since it really wants to continue oscillating to another chord, following the transfer of energy in the overarching octave standing wave distribution. You really need to read my book to grasp this fully.
In any case, this is a transform that can be used for any kind of harmony and music, though the harmonic center (supertonic) must be transposed to whatever you think is the focal point of the harmony at a given time (i.e., chromatic music). The harmonic center transposition would become a property along with the tension values.

Richard Merrick; Hey Doc,
I'm assuming your decimals are representing interval ratios in a logarithmic octave? If so, then the circle angle assignments need to be derived by multiplying your interval ratios by Log(x) base 2 to get the proportion of a circle then multiply by 360 to get the angle in degrees, like the attached 2D graphic.
To make this 3D, it needs to be mapped onto a sphere. But, this could be done any number of different ways, depending on which axes you want each angle assigned to. This is an arbitrary decision, though, because it represents the angles in an octave rather than a natural pattern created by wave interference or crystallization. Thus, bringing this 2D linear octave representation into 3 dimensions only makes sense if you include a third variable. For instance, the third dimension could be a Phi-recursive dimension like the growth dimension I propose in Section Five. I'm not really sure, but I don't think minerals usually have a recursive growth dimension. They tend to extrude along an axis, don't they? If mineral crystallization is your model, you might need to just make the third variable a 3D time vector (your c-axis) and the circle pattern would extrude along this. Partial 9 would still be your 2D axis, but not the 3D axis.
A more organic way to represent intervals in both 2D and 3D is as a cymatic pattern. In this case, you would play one of the interval ratios on a flat 2D water surface or in a 3D spherical water container to reveal its pattern. The interval would need to be tuned to the prime resonance frequency of the container. Simple in concept, but difficult in practice to do this. Most people who experiment with cymatics have no clue why the frequencies they are sounding make the patterns they do. This is because they don't determine the resonant frequency first and then choose their intervals based on that to generate the desired pattern.
Hope this doesn't confuse.
Below is the cymatic water interference pattern created by a 3:2 perfect fifth interval (1.5).

Richard Merrick; Doc,
Okay, so my assumption was wrong. Your decimal numbers are simply fractions of 2 and not relative to logarithmic pitch space.
Converting these to angles would then be:
1.074 / 2 = 0.537 and 0.537 * 360 = 193.32 degrees
1.136 / 2 = 0.568 and 0.568 * 360 = 204.48 degrees
1.539 / 2 = 0.7695 and 0.7695 * 360 = 277.02 degrees
1.642 / 2 = 0.821 and 0.821 * 360 = 295.56 degrees
Remember, this is a linear scale and that any conversion of these angles to pitch space will require a log base 2 conversion like the one I sent. This is because octaves ascend in powers of 2. Also, if converting to equal temperament, each fraction will need to be quantized to half step multiples as 2^(n/12).
To your other question, I used Adobe Illustrator and rotated the lines to specific angles using the rotate function. I have a math graphing program, but I only use that when I need to graph more elaborate functions.
Glad to hear you're discussing this with others. Mind if I ask what line of business you're in? I'm always curious about the perspectives and expertise of people who read Interference. I've heard from everybody from nanotech engineers developing stealth technology to biologists working on a cure for tinnitus, not to mention music theorists. Everyone has a different area of application, it seems. I enjoy hearing which particular concept in the book is of greatest interest or most eye opening.

About the use of ; Log(x) base 2
What Im working with is 2 = 360 degrees..... at least the values are generated with 2 being the ceiling, but ;
Log(2) *360 = 108 degress
Log(10) *360 = 360 degress
Any suggestions on how I resolve this?
Richard Merrick; The harmonic center is always relative to its fundamental (or tonic) because it's the ninth harmonic in the fundamental's harmonic series. So, the harmonic center is always the symmetrical center in a diatonic scale while the fundamental is a whole tone below. Any interval then "functions" according to the harmonic flow of the scale that contains it, pulling toward the harmonic center or its tritone opposite, whichever is closest. You'll find a complete explanation in the book.
The book should arrive within a week. Let me know if you have any questions once you get into it.

I have not received the courier pack yet, the order I had sent that was returned....
Also, had a question, is there a formula you know of that can determine the harmonic center of any given interval and / or any two intervals paired?
I.e. if I wanted to find the harmonic center of a major third represented as 1.25, how would I determine this ?
Or if I had two intervals say 1.333 ( perf fourth) and a semitone 1.05, how would I determine the center between these

History of Bio-Energy Resonance.
Bio-Resonance is the field of energetic medicine that detects and works with electromagnetic frequency information generated by the body. Bio refers to a living organism and resonance means 'to vibrate in harmony with'.
In his book It's Only Natural, Dr. G. E. Poesnecker wrote:
“… Since the beginning of man's existence on earth, he has pondered the nature of life itself. Even with all our great scientific advances, there is still no CONSENSUS on the basic nature of the life within us and other animate beings. The most generally accepted theories are based on the chemical and/or stimulative-inhibitive theory of existence. The most we can get from most authorities is that it may be of some value to regard life as the sum total of the properties and activities of a highly organized aggregate of various chemical compounds that we call protoplasm.
Among these properties they have called attention to irritability as a diagnostic property of a living body. Upon this Herbert Spencer based his classic definition: “Life is the continuous adjustment of internal relations to external relations.” Observation teaches us that this adjustment to environmental changes is possible only within narrow physiologic limits. For example, the human body can adjust itself to changes in external temperature only when these changes are very moderate. Viewed from this angle, they hold that life is the interplay between the organism and its environment by which the organism either adjusts itself to the environment or adjusts the environment to itself.
Such a definition tells only what life does; it doesn't tell what life is. Unfortunately, such an attitude has frequently been the nature of science since its inception. When a scientist is incapable of explaining something, he describes what he sees, makes up a few Latin or Greek names for the rest to impress us and then goes on to something else. This is particularly true in medicine, where most of the tongue-twisting disease names have nothing whatsoever to do with the cause or true nature of the disease but are only the description of its most obvious symptoms in Latin or Greek.
Some researchers haven't been satisfied with such smug descriptions of the nature of life. Some have listened to the voice of their conscience when contemplating the usual theories on the nature of life and have been able to see through the usual inane double talk couched in Latin and Greek, which all too often passes for scientific thought. They realize that much of the phenomena we encounter in living can’t be explained readily by the stimulus/response theory of life as put forth by their orthodox colleagues.
Surprisingly, many of these researchers have developed concepts similar to each other, even though their work has been accomplished without knowledge of their fellow investigators. All these studies have gone beyond the chemical or mechanical basis of life and have been carried into the molecular and atomic structure of matter. From this effort first developed an electrical, then an electronic, and finally a vibratory, or wave concept, of life and the activities carried out by the living subject.
Some of the most well-known researchers in this field were Dr. Georges Lakhovsky, Professor Jacques d’Arsonval (the discoverer of the meter movement that goes under his name), Dr. George W. Crile, Dr. Albert Abrams, Nicola Tesla and Ivan G. McDaniel (who advanced this theory into the psychological, mental, and spiritual spheres of human activity)… “
In 1925 Georges Lakhovsky, a Russian scientist, published a book called The Secret of Lifein which he identified that every living cell emitted radiation (electro-magnetic signals) and that a cell's nucleus acts as an electrical oscillating circuit similar to a radio transmitter and receiver. Lakhovsky was knowledgeable in both engineering and biology. It was the meshing of these two sciences that helped him prove his theories.
It had already been established by the 1920’s that invisible radiations were constantly bombarding the earth. Lakhovsky believed that these ultra short waves (sometimes called penetrating waves, at the time) were what gave us life.
Lakhovsky believed that each of our cells was a minute resonating circuit and when these circuits were oscillating correctly we or any living organism were healthy. When an outside source caused our cells to oscillate at a different rate then disease set in. In his book “The Secret of Life” Lakhovsky wrote, “What is life? It is the dynamic equilibrium of all cells, the harmony of multiple radiations that react upon one another. What is disease? It is the oscillatory disequilibrium of cells, originating from eternal causes. It is, more especially, the struggle between microbic radiation and cellular radiation.” He believed it was these radiations that kept our bodies oscillating correctly but too much or a distorted radiation would cause them to oscillate incorrectly.
Setting out to prove his theories, Lakhovsky felt that he could generate a practical application to enable the adversely effected cells to regain their full vitality by reinstating their proper oscillatory rate. Thus he invented the Multiple Wave Oscillator (originally called Radio-cellulo-oscillator). He felt that by giving the cells a large range of oscillating waves that the cells would find their proper frequency and therefore become strong enough to fight off the improper oscillations of microbes or be strong enough to fight back from such damage as that caused by smoking.
He initially proved his theory using plants. In December, 1924, he inoculated 10 germanium plants with a “plant cancer” that produced tumors. After 30 days, tumors had developed in all of the plants. He took one of the 10 infected plants and simply fashioned a heavy copper wire in a one loop, open-ended coil about 30 cm (12") in diameter around the center of the plant, and held it in place with an ebonite stake . The copper coil acted as an antennae or a tuning coil, collecting and concentrating oscillation energy from extremely high frequency cosmic rays. The diameter of the cooper loop determined whichrange of frequencies would be captured. He found that the 30 cm loop captured frequencies that fell within the resonant frequency range of the plant's cells. This captured energy reinforced the resonant oscillations naturally produced by the nucleus of the germanium's cells. This allowed the plant to overwhelm the oscillations of the cancer cells and destroy the cancer. The tumors fell off in less than 3 weeks and by 2 months, the plant was thriving. All of the other cancer-inoculated plants-without the antennae coil- died within 30 days. In his book, Lakhovsky shows pictures of the recovered plant after 2 months, 6 months, and 1 year. Three years later, with the original coil left in place, the plant grew into a very robust specimen. He tried this 3 different times and all three experiments produced the same results.
Since Lakhovsky’s belief was that living cells were tiny oscillators that were given life from penetrating radiation and the oscillation of these cells put off their own radiation, he proceeded with an experiment to find out if indeed the penetrating radiation was what caused the cells to oscillate or if some other stimuli such as chemical energy was responsible for sustaining this oscillation.
Dr. George Crile, in his book A Bipolar Theory of Living Processes, (Crile, George W.: A Bipolar Theory of Living Processes. New York, Mac Millan, 1926.) approached this subject from yet another point of view. The similarity between his conclusions and those of the other researchers in this field, however, is startling. For instance, Crile wrote, “It is clear that cellular radiation produces the electric current which operates adaptively the organism as a whole, producing memory, reason, imagination, emotion, special senses, secretions, muscular action, response to infection, normal growth and the growth of benign tumors and cancers-all of which are governed adaptively by the electrical charges that are generated by the short wave or ionizing radiation in the protoplasm.”
The human cell, as all matter in the universe, is composed of oscillating components known as atoms, which in turn are composed of particles called protons, electrons, neutrons, and positrons, among others. All these particles are in constant movement. The movement of the electron is especially great, as it rapidly circles this central mass of the atom in various bands, or orbits. The atomic structure is analogous to our own solar system, in which the sun represents the central nuclear mass and the various planets the encircling electrons.
In Lamp of the Soul, (McDaniel, Ivan G.: The Lamp of the Soul. Quakertown, Pa., Philosophical Publishing Co.1942.) Ivan G. McDaniel speaks of biologic wave systems that are vibratory interconnecting systems, that tend to hold a part or organ together for a specific functioning purpose. All this is based on the principle that the cell is an electromagnetic radiating entity. Concerning life on earth McDaniel says, “We may therefore picture life on earth as beginning with simple spores, or cells, which were built up by organizing wave systems when earth's conditions were suitable for life to express in that manner. As conditions changed, the fertilized genes were incorporated into the cells, bringing physical and mental growth. When a new gene and its corresponding wave system is introduced into an organism, we would expect to find the new biological wave competing with the older wave for the same cell material, and this may explain the peculiar combination of plant and animal sometimes found in the earlier species. The balance of the activating hormone between the old and the new biological wave systems may flow back and forth until one gains control and eliminates the effect of the other by absorbing all the vitality.”
In 1970s, German biophysicist Fritz Albert Popp, Ph.D., investigated the relationship between coherence and the biophoton energy in our cells. Popp used highly sensitive light-measuring equipment to monitor the light emitted by living cells. He was able to confirm that living cells emit small bursts of light. He determined that cells do not just radiate light, they also absorb light. In fact, the storage time is relative to the quality of the cell. Therefore, a healthy cell will store light the longest, while an unhealthy cell will give off the light in a shorter time. He also discovered that the dying process of a cell is identical to that of a star. Shortly before its death, it will change into a supernova, whereby its radiation increases a thousand-fold, He further discovered that a healthy cell radiates coherent light, while a diseased cell radiates chaotic light.
According to Popp, every cell in our body receives coherent light, stores coherent light, and emits coherent light. The most basic sub-molecular component of our body is made up of particles of light called biophotons. These biophotons, traveling at the speed of light, make up the electromagnetic frequency patterns that are found in every living organism. This matrix or field of frequency oscillations or resonance specificity provides the energetic switchboarding behind every cellular function, including DNA/RNA messengering. Cell membranes scan and convert signals into electromagnetic events as proteins within the cell's bi-layer change shape to vibrations of specific resonant frequencies.2 Every biochemical reaction is proceeded by an electromagnetic signal. Cells communicate both electromagnetically and chemically and create biochemical pathways that interconnect with all functions of the body.
Dr. Kikuo Chishima, Professor of the Nagoya Commercial University, Japan, and author of a nine volume collection of his research and scientific studies called "Revolution of Biology and Medicine: A New Theory on the Life Science and Its Practical Application to Health & Disease," is best known for his studies demonstrating that the origin of red blood corpuscles is not the bone marrow but the intestinal villus, and that red blood corpuscles differentiate into all kinds of somatic cells and germ cells in accordance with their cellular resonant environmental conditions.
Dr. Kikuo Chishima theorized that the intestinal villi act like small antennae that absorb both nutrients as well as energetic or frequency information from the food we eat. These red blood cells or erythrocytes respond to specific biophoton oscillations and aggregate, fuse, synthesize DNA and differentiate into lymphocyte or mesenchymal cells. Dr. Chishima's work offers some insight into current day quantum physics theories that remind us that at the sub-atomic level matter does not exist. There is only energy; bits of photons with lots of empty space around them. DNA has been thought to be the center of the definition of life. At closer inspection we find that DNA is made up of molecules, which are made up of sub-atomic particles and we end up back at the level of biophotons again.

There is a strikingly close resemblance between sound waves and the way they are set up in the air by a mechanically vibrating body, such as a steel spring or a tuning fork, and electric waves and the way they are set up in the ether by a current oscillating in a circuit. As it is easy to grasp the way that sound waves are produced and behave something will be told about them in this chapter and also an explanation of how electric waves are produced and behave and thus you will be able to get a clear understanding of them and of tuning in general.
Damped and Sustained Mechanical Vibrations.--If you will place one end of a flat steel spring in a vice and screw it up tight as shown at A in Fig. 34, and then pull the free end over and let it go it will vibrate to and fro with decreasing amplitude until it comes to rest as shown at B. When you pull the spring over you store up energy in it and when you let it go the stored up energy is changed into energy of motion and the spring moves forth and back, or vibrates as we call it, until all of its stored up energy is spent.
If it were not for the air surrounding it and other frictional losses, the spring would vibrate for a very long time as the stored up energy and the energy of motion would practically offset each other and so the energy would not be used up. But as the spring beats the air the latter is sent out in impulses and the conversion of the vibrations of the spring into waves in the air soon uses up the energy you have imparted to it and it comes to rest.
In order to send out continuous waves in the air instead of damped waves as with a flat steel spring you can use an electric driven tuning fork, see C, in which an electromagnet is fixed on the inside of the prongs and when this is energized by a battery current the vibrations of the prongs of the fork are kept going, or are sustained, as shown in the diagram at D.
Damped and Sustained Electric Oscillations.--The vibrating steel spring described above is a very good analogue of the way that damped electric oscillations which surge in a circuit set up and send out periodic electric waves in the ether while the electric driven tuning fork just described is likewise a good analogue of how sustained oscillations surge in a circuit and set up and send out continuous electric waves in the ether as the following shows.
Now the inductance and resistance of a circuit such as is shown at A in Fig. 35, slows down, and finally damps out entirely, the electric oscillations of the high frequency currents, see B, where these are set up by the periodic discharge of a condenser, precisely as the vibrations of the spring are damped out by the friction of the air and other resistances that act upon it. As the electric oscillations surge to and fro in the circuit it is opposed by the action of the ether which surrounds it and electric waves are set up in and sent out through it and this transformation soon uses up the energy of the current that flows in the circuit.
