The Sacred Geometry Of Music The Sacred Geometry Of Music by Andrew Lorimer Music uses the laws of vibration to manifest aurally what exists at the center of everything. Into our reality springs a non-visual harmonic law that is universal. The notes and intervals of music speak directly to the chakra centers and causes them to vibrate in harmony to the vibration of a string or vocal chords, speakers moving through the air, or the sound of someone’s lips making a farting noise through a metal tube. Music uses the laws of physics and mathematics to bring out an emotional response in the listener. The music of the Western world uses a mathematical system based on Twelve. All the songs you have ever known and sang along to in your life use the same simple laws based on the number twelve. Clock Harmonisphere The mathematics of the harmonisphere are amazing. When we measure the same chords on the harmonisphere, the seven chords have the same mirrored combinations as the piano:
Japanese Museum Unveils A Giant Globe Made of 10,000 Live-Updating OLED Panels Geo-Cosmos If you want to see what Earth looks like from space, become an astronaut (or, barring that, a space tourist). For the next best view, pay a visit to Tokyo’s National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation where a massive, nearly 20-foot spherical OLED orb--the world’s first large scale spherical OLED --offers a satellite’s-eye view of the planet in super high resolution. “Geo-Cosmos” is made up of 10,362 OLED panels that display continuously-updating satellite footage of our tiny blue marble, representing what our planet looks like from space in something close to realtime. It replaces an earlier model covered in LED panels, offering museum-goers a full 10 million pixels, a resolution 10 times greater than its predecessor. And like any good museum exhibit, Geo-Cosmos is interactive. [ Tokyo Tek ]
Dubstep Saved My Life My collection of funny emails from my inbox. Subject: 5 MINUTE MANAGEMENT COURSE Lesson 1: A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 to drop that towel." After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. "Great!" Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure. Lesson 2: A priest offered a Nun a lift. The priest removed his hand. Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. Lesson 3: "Me first! "Me next! Lesson 4: Lesson 5: Lesson 6:
Vibrations, Harmonics, Resonance, Waves and Reality the Musical Scale The musical scale is not an accident. It is a natural consequence of pure mathematics and nature. It's more proper to say it was discovered - not invented. This is one reason why music can be seen as the true universal language. The scale we use divides the octave based on the harmonic series into 12 notes, the 12th being the same note an octave higher than the first. Spheres of Sound: Illustrated sequence of wave vibrations on the harmonic diagonal (from ) The tone C is the whole, a ratio of 1:1, therefore C encloses the total space. An expansion goes away from the diagonal, while a contraction moves toward a diagonal.
Blog Physica Ermahgerd, memes! A retrospective on this years internet quirks and curios It seems 2012 was the year memes went mainstream. Helped largely by the rise of social media and the fact most of us now have an online presence, you’d be hard pushed to find someone who didn’t come across at least one of this year’s memes, mash-ups, viral hits or image macros.

Texts From Hillary If the 2012 US election is anything to go by, politics and memes go hand in hand. The blog lasted just one week and after 32 posts, 83,000 Facebook shares, 8,400 Twitter followers, more than 45,000 Tumblr followers, and a meeting with Clinton herself, creators Adam Smith and Stacy Lambe called it a day – but not before publishing a submission from their inspiration. Call Me Maybe But while Smith and Lambe knew when to quit while they were ahead, some memes continued way beyond their peak. Shit Girls Say Texts from Dog Dogshaming

IdeaPaint: Turn Your Entire Office Into a Whiteboard Why didn't you think of this? John Goscha, at the ripe old age of 25 ditched a job offer at Goldman Sachs, and instead began marketing IdeaPaint, which is simply a paint that turns any paintable surface into a dry-erase board. The benefit--besides being able to brainstorm on almost every inch of your office--is that the paint is half the cost of whiteboard and better-performing--you can leave marks up indefinitely, and they won't stain the wall.
