440 hz vs 432 hz and other frequencies

Post by Roobar » Sat Jun 18, 2011 12:33

There are some interesting things to investigate about the 440 hz that is the main standard. Not that mp3s by themselves have anything to do with that standard, but some say that the 432 hz frequency was re-programmed to 440 hz by a nazi officer back in the 1939. He knew that the 432 hz resonant frequency is the only one that have perfect harmony balance. Verdi and other classic musicians were using the 432 hz frequency. The 432 hz frequency is the only resonant frequency that is capable of naturally reproducing what is called the "Pythagorian Musical Spiral". It's the same sequence of growth that all life follows. It utilizes the formula of "Phi" also know as the "Golden Mean" and is also found in the "Fibonnaci sequence".

So:
a-432=perfect harmonic balance=good
a-440= cosmic static/noise/distortion from an unbalanced wave structure=bad

So after reading lot of stuff, I think you can try and change the pitch by -0.317 steps to achieve the 432 hz frequency. You can use Audacity to change your mp3s to be in that frequency or use a plug-in for winamp.

But there are some other frequencies as well. For example the 528 hz, which is considered to be a DNA repair one.

So you're saying that setting an MP3 to that frequency will be the equiv. of lossless or something altogether different? (I've not read the links, just your explanation.)

As for DNA repair: I think we'd all know about it if that were possible!

Sounds like something Tool might write a song about.

Are you saying that not only was there a Nazi plot to make music sound slightly worse, but there's a magical frequency at which music can cure cancer?

And some say that the Jews caused 9/11.

I find it very interesting that many of these sites mis-quote the Schiller Institute, saying that Verdi's Pitch was A=432Hz when it was actually 430.5 Hz.

As for the Nazi's changing the standard from 432 Hz, it's total garg. The French set a standard of A=435 in 1800s, and the Austrians followed suit some later. If the Nazi's changed anything, it would have been that standard. In 1936 the American Standards Association recommended A=440, and in 1955 A=440 Hz became ISO 16.

The idea of Pythagorean tuning is nice, but excuse me if I'm skeptical of sites that claim that but changing the tuning of an instrument I can heal water and cure cancer....

Exactly what I was thinking. Wiivn, stop believing conspiracy theories online. The only pieces of Nazi thinking we as a planet have kept are the few good ideas they ever had, like motoring for the people and promotion of the olympics (they had a couple more good ideas but we didn't bother keeping those).

You might as well buy yourself a Q-ray ionized bracelet and start praying at the church of the Time Cube.

Is there actually any relation between something oscillating at 435 hz and the Fibonacci Sequence? None of this stuff looks credible, and I should know.

However, I didn't know all that stuff about A=440..

Depends whose opium-driven writings you've been reading.

I just worked out the Fibonacci Sequence, ending in the number that closest fits the idea of 435:

IT'S THE KEEN SEQUENCE!
IT'S JUST AS VALID AS THE IDEA OF REPAIRING DNA! KEEN EXISTS IN MATHS!
