Evolution of the Human Body in Harmonic Lattice

For instance, the Egyptian 19-grid was used for thousands of years to illustrate the human body and in the layout of sacred spaces, such as the temple at Luxor [Schwaller de Lubicz]. It corresponds perfectly to a grid of standing waves tuned to the spinal frequency of a musical perfect fifth.

In his book Serpent in the Sky, John Anthony West agrees: "It is harmony that is responsible for the specific physical phenomena that scientists call 'reality,' but that wiser men realise is but the physical aspect of reality to which our senses have access. We speak of musical 'form'. We know it is the result of harmonies that may be reduced to vibrations -- that is to say, to number. But we tend to think of musical 'form' metaphorically, whereas we should regard it literally."
