more sound stufs
Posted this yesterday, and Got to thinkin’ some of ya may think I am a little off my rocker,,,
Just to fill in some blanks, NO, I don’t buy into all the Ancient Tech theory that gets covered in some of the utoob vids on these things. Like the ‘fact’ that the ancient Egyptians used 432 repeatedly in the building of the largest pyramid,,, Sure, you can do some figuring this way and that, and I can promise you will find co-Inky-Dinks in everything. But when you start spouting ‘it was exactly 432 Long Cubits wide’,,,, Dood, get real, A Cubit is an ANTHROPOMORPHIC measurement. Its determined by YOUR body, and no one elses. Mine will be slightly different than yours. We didn’t hit standardized measurements for centuries after the great pyramids were built. Even the Greeks had anthropomorphic measuring, though they would and did standardize for particular builds. The Acropolis being one that we know they standardized FOR THE BUILD only. Archeologists found measuring instruments that were provided to the workers so that they were all on the same page, not using thier elbows to fingertips (which is what a Cubit is,,,) or some other squishy type of measurement. I would imagine the Ancient Egyptians did similar for building massive things, like the pyramids or the temple of Thebes, but I wouldn’t use the Cubit or any other body type measurement as a standard for “facts”. Anthropomorphic works well when you are building personal items, like kayaks, that are meant to fit one person and one person only. but when you have a small army of masons and carpenters, you need that fixed measuring system, and it doesn’t matter what it is, so long as everyone is using it. (and why I make sure that people I work with at the J.O.B. check their tapes against mine. It may not be 100% correct, but if we all are the same, it works.)
Where this sound stuff makes me scratch my head and ask ‘is there something to this?’ is with the music. That music can stir emotions is probably the least questioned aspect of it. People are very much emotion driven despite our trying so hard to be rational creatures (most of us anyway) and music speaks to that emotional side.
We know that certain combinations of sound, timbre, tone, frequencies, etc etc, strike certain ’emotional nerves’
so, why couldn’t a frequency choice be positive or negative in its application. The hardest part about this search is that its highly subjective. Some people are more sensitive to sound than others, some,, Usually the psychopaths, have zero sensitivity to sounds and people like me analyze the shit out of these things,,,, me, because it interests me greatly.
that doesn’t make me a crackpot,,, LOL
or does it? hmmmm,,,
but what if, there is something there, that makes us better, or at least more in tune with the rest of the world? Wouldn’t it be cool if just a change in music scales helped shift peoples attitudes for the better?
nope, not looking for that silverbullet to save the world, but I would like to see some alleviation of the ‘Ick’ that this world is seeing,,, Dunno that sound is the key, but its what I do know, and understand far better than I understand people. People still trip me up (and why I get along with furrypaws better than I do most people,,,,)
mehbe I am the crackpot,,, after all, I believe that our souls reside in the quantum cloud, and this ‘reality’ is a game for our real selves,,,, Take it with a grain of salt (one of the first standardized measurements btw,,, grains, scruples etc See what I did there,,,)
Dammit man! Talk about a wide ranging post🙃 Nah, you ain’t nutzz. I tend to get along better with the 4 legged critters, too.
Don’t actually think there is such a silver bullet, meself. Wouldn’t surprise me that it would have sumthin to do with muzik though, if there wuz.
Meself, I much prefer rational – when I can find it.🤪
Have that thingy going on with certain muzik and the emotions, meself. Kinda often, too, these last coupla years. Sometimes a bummer.
Understand whut yer talkin about as to the measuring, too. Sometimes it doesn’t help to ‘compare tapes’ – there’s some that’re just too f(&%kin stoopid to unnerstand – even when ya spell it out fer ’em and show ’em how to do it.
Keep on keepin on,
