Is this a spiral or a circle? What causes us to perceive it as a spiral first? Read More...

Diatonic Flow Around the Harmonic Center

DiatonicFlow
This illustration shows the symmetry in the energy flow of a musical diatonic scale around the Harmonic Center D of the C harmonic series. The traditional nomenclature of the Roman Church for the scale steps has been replaced by my own proposed symmetrically balanced names. Read More...

The Harmonic Color-Tone Wheel

Color-Tone
When color symmetry is mapped onto the scale symmetry of a 7-tone diatonic scale, a perceptual correspondence can be established between vision and audition. Read More...

The Three Color Cones in the Human Retina

ThreeCone
The three color cones in the human retina resonate with specific frequency ranges of the light spectrum. Read More...

Diatonic Standing Wave Model

DiatonicWave
According to harmonic interference theory, the 7-tone diatonic scale of common practice music can be represented as a frequency doubling (first harmonic) of a 12-tone octave standing wave. Read More...

Color Spectrum to Log Octave Mapping

Spectrum
The range of human vision is 370THz at the red end of the spectrum to 740Thz at the blue end. Read More...

Brain Geometry (new diagrams)

Here are some new diagrams describing the harmonic geometry of the human brain. Read More...

Holonomic Brain Model

One of the conclusions of my research was that we recognize harmony and harmonics in music by pattern matching standing wave patterns against identical standing wave patterns in our brain. This is compatible with the Pribram-Bohm holonomic brain model whereby the brain is described as a hologram interference pattern resulting from orthogonal standing waves. This is my idealized representation of the idea. Read More...

From Perception to Consciousness

Question of Perception

This post was a response to the question "what are the sixth and seventh senses." After I responded, I learned that the correct answer was common sense and a sense of humor, which I think makes a lot of sense, so to speak. But, my answer was a little different... Read More...
