Welcome 1st part: Introduction Welcome on, a site dedicated to all music lovers. Take a few minutes to discover one of the greatest inventions based on a new musical perception that rely on the chromatic scale and the diatonic scale by using number to indicate each degree (see Fig. 1). By looking at the numbers that correspond to the intervals that constitute a Perfect Major Chord, you can see the legendary Fibonacci sequence (the divine proportion). With the discovery of a “Musical Universal Key”, M. Lalonde, the inventor, demonstrates where this revolutionary easy approach method starts.

10 Mind-Blowing Theories That Will Change Your Perception of the World Reality is not as obvious and simple as we like to think. Some of the things that we accept as true at face value are notoriously wrong. Scientists and philosophers have made every effort to change our common perceptions of it. The 10 examples below will show you what I mean. Math + Music = ? The beauty of maths was given a unique opportunity to shine last weekend, as the London Institute of Education played host to Bridges 2006, a conference celebrating mathematical connections in music and art. Over two hundred delegates, some mathematicians, some artists and some both, came together to witness more than a hundred presentations and a visual arts exhibition, and — probably most importantly — to talk and exchange ideas. Non-Spin Return, a sculpture by Simon Thomas based on the idea of a collapsing universe.

French musician brings new life to Canaries whistle-language - World Music Matters It goes like this: French musician writes song for his mum based around whistling language known as Silbo from island of La Gomera. The song gets translated by French teachers on the island. Kids love it, massive buzz, breathes new life into the language. French musician’s album Silbo, while featuring only one whistling track, gets loads of attention. But Féloche, the musician in question, deserves it. The song Silbo opens with the words:

The Great Pyramid of Giza The 35th Course of Masonry is quite notable in that it is particularly thick. At approximately 50 inches, it is the thickest course other than the base courses. The majority of courses range between 25 and 35 inches. How Acoustic Levitation Works" Unless you travel into the vacuum of space, sound is all around you every day. But most of the time, you probably don't think of it as a physical presence. You hear sounds; you don't touch them. The only exceptions may be loud nightclubs, cars with window-rattling speakers and ultrasound machines that pulverize kidney stones. But even then, you most likely don't think of what you feel as sound itself, but as the vibrations that sound creates in other objects.

Russian Scientist Photographs the Soul Leaving the Body at Death The timing of astral disembodiment in which the spirit leaves the body has been captured by Russian scientist Konstantin Korotkov, who photographed a person at the moment of his death with a bioelectrographic camera. The image taken using the gas discharge visualization method, an advanced technique of Kirlian photography shows in blue the life force of the person leaving the body gradually. According to Korotkov, navel and head are the parties who first lose their life force (which would be the soul) and the groin and the heart are the last areas where the spirit before surfing the phantasmagoria of the infinite. In other cases according to Korotkov has noted that “the soul” of people who suffer a violent and unexpected death usually manifests a state of confusion in your power settings and return to the body in the days following death.

Controlling brain cells with sound waves Salk scientists have developed a new way to selectively activate brain, heart, muscle and other cells using ultrasonic waves. The new technique, dubbed sonogenetics, has some similarities to the burgeoning use of light to activate cells in order to better understand the brain. This new method--which uses the same type of waves used in medical sonograms--may have advantages over the light-based approach--known as optogenetics--particularly when it comes to adapting the technology to human therapeutics.

Prescription for the Soul: Nahko Bear and Medicine for the People Nahko Bear and Medicine for the People One of the reasons I love being able to contribute to the cultural conversation is having the ability to tell the story and journey of the overlooked or undiscovered artist. Which brings me to my recent rediscovery: Nahko Bear and Medicine for the People. At the beginning of the year a wonderful young artist Elizabeth Fairy Rathbone sent me a YouTube link to perhaps one of the most beautiful and stirring videos I've seen in a very long time. While the visuals were absolutely breathtaking, the song grabbed me at my very core. I can still remember wanting to learn more about this indie-band with the strange name -- but then life, work and chaos happened.

Plants perform molecular maths Nigel Cattlin/Getty As if making food from light were not impressive enough, it may be time to add another advanced skill to the botanical repertoire: the ability to perform — at least at the molecular level — arithmetic division. Computer-generated models published in the journal eLife illustrate how plants might use molecular mathematics to regulate the rate at which they devour starch reserves to provide energy throughout the night, when energy from the Sun is off the menu1. If so, the authors say, it would be the first example of arithmetic division in biology. But it may not be the only one: many animals go through periods of fasting — during hibernations or migrations, for example — and must carefully ration internal energy stores in order to survive. “This is a new framework for understanding the control of metabolic processes,” says Rodrigo Gutiérrez, a plant-systems biologist at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile in Santiago, who was not involved in the work.

The Human Eye Can See in Ultraviolet When the Lens is Removed You may have heard that digital cameras can be made sensitive to infrared light by removing the IR filter found inside, but did you now that something similar can be done with the human eye? People who have aphakia, or the absence of the lens on the eye, have reported the ability to see ultraviolet wavelengths. Claude Monet was one such person. Carl Zimmer writes, Late in his life, Claude Monet developed cataracts.
