432 Hz -Pythagorean Tuning
Out of the billions of people alive on earth today, few have heard or even felt the effects of the exact frequencies embedded in the Ancient Pythagorean Scale tuning . Could 432 Hz tuning be a cosmic key that unlocks a higher understanding that reveals the synchronistic nature of life on this planet?
Through my hands on experience of building, stringing and tuning 100’s of folk harps and wind harps I have noticed a radical difference in the tonal quality of the instrument depending upon the frequencies chosen. My personal experience is that 432 Hz. tuning facilitates an immediate inner connection when I sit down and play my folk harp. It compels me to effortlessly “get in the zone “ so to speak. My folk harp sounds and feels fuller, warmer and more resonant than 440 Hz tuning and seems to easily fill the room with a non-local quality to the harmonics.
Tuning the wind harps to the Pythagorean scale also creates a gentle ambiance of sound that always feels in balance, and in harmony with the natural soundscape.
Pythagoras of Samos, the 6th Century Greek Mathematician, Astronomer and Spiritual Mystic, is credited for originating the “Music of the Spheres Theory “ stating that there are musical ratios or intervals of distant planets and their orbital movements around one another that perfectly resonate with our currently excepted laws of musical harmony and physics.
Pythagoras spent 22 years studying with the Egyptian high priests who were adepts in Astronomy and “Musica”, the science of ancient musical healing technologies. Upon returning to Europe he founded a mystery school in Italy to teach mathematicians and philosophers how the fundamental principles of creation are founded upon the understanding of harmony in music. “Creation is a vibrant, dynamic intelligence”.
The Cosmic importance of A=432 Hz Pythagorean Tuning
Pythagorean tuning is based on a stack of intervals called perfect fifths, each tuned in the ratio 3:2, Starting from D for example (D-based tuning), six other notes are produced by moving six times a ratio 3:2 up, and the remaining ones by moving the same ratio down: E♭–B♭–F–C–G–D–A–E–B–F♯–C♯–G♯
Pythagorean Scale based on A=432 Hz. Equal-Tempered Scale based on A=440 Hz
C= 256 Hz 1/1 C= 261.63 Hz
D= 288 Hz 9/8 D= 293.66 Hz
E= 324 Hz 81/64 E= 329.63 Hz
F= 342 Hz 4/3 F= 349.23 Hz
G= 384 Hz 3/2 G= 392 Hz
A= 432 Hz 27/16 A= 440 Hz
B= 486 Hz 243/128 B= 493.88 Hz
C’=512 Hz 2/1 C= 523.25 Hz
All of the frequencies in the Pythagorean tuning are whole numbers and can be evenly divided by either 2 or 3 or both. These frequencies relate to each other in a coherent and powerful harmonic progression, whereas the frequencies shown in our current tuning system of the equal- tempered scale based on A=440 Hz is totally fragmented, without any universal harmonic connection and is intended to not harmonize with any organic frequencies or healthy living systems on this planet.
The Cosmic Significance of 432
– The diameter of the moon= 432 x 5 = 2,160 miles
– Diameter of the Sun = 432,000 x 2 = 864,000 miles
– Procession of the Zodiac Equinoxes = 432 x 60 = 25,920 years
– 12 hrs in a ½ day = 720 minutes or 432,000 seconds
– Saturn orbits the Procession of Equinoxes once every 864 years (432 x 2)
– The speed of light = 186,282 Miles Per Second which is .998% accurate to (432 x 432) = 186,624
– The Kings Chamber in the Great Pyramid of Giza resonates with a 432 Hz fundamental tone.
The ancient texts of the Hindu and Sikh traditions agree with these grand cycles of cosmic time.
Golden Age (Sat Yuga) = 1,728,000 years = (4 x 432,000 years)
Silver Age (Treta Yuga) = 1,296,000 years = (3 x 432,000 years)
Bronze Age (Dwapar Yuga) = 864,000 years = (2 x 432,000 years)
Iron Age (Kali Yuga) = 432,000 years ( our current age)
The Harmonic Overtone partials of 432 Hz appear to line up with the natural cyclical patterns of cosmic cycles of time that define the evolutionary march of creation on a macro-cosmic scale. 432 is also embedded into universal constants such as the speed of light and the procession of the Equinoxes.
Since 432 Hz is a lower harmonic of the frequency/speed of light it resonates directly with our cells because our cells communicate with each other via infrared light photons.
It is my perspective that when we listen to music tuned to an A=432Hz Pythagorean tuning our collective consciousness is being harmonically inspired to resonate with a fundamental frequency of Harmony.
By intentionally re-tuning our accepted musical scale to a numerical system that is back in harmony with nature and the cosmos we will help re-balance our ecology, our relationships with each other and ultimately the power structures of our world.
