The Enigma that is A=432 Hz
Known as Verdi’s ‘ A’, the enigma that is A=432 Hz is a pure mathematical tone resonant throughout nature, and as such music played at this frequency exhibits many fundamental health benefits to the listener . In recent history, according to Dr. Len Horowitz the world underwent the strategic “militarization” of music. In 1939 the tuning of the note ‘A above Middle C’ to 440 Hz was adopted by the British Standards Institute (BSI) following the persuasive endorsement by the Rockefeller consortium. At the precise time WWII preparations were being finalized by the Global War financiers, the musical world followed suite and A=440 became the international standard.
Earlier, In 1917, The American Federation of Musicians adopted the A440 standard pitch with the U.S. government following suit in 1920. Across the Water in Berlin, Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels , argued vehemently in favor of the change, persuading Hitler’s supposed enemies in Britain to adopt the standard tuning as the superior standard.
This Despite, In October 1953, a referendum of 23,000 French musicians voted overwhelmingly against the change, in favour of A=432Hz. This A=432 reference pitch was also strongly endorsed by the Congress of Italian musicians in 1881, and recommended by the physicists Joseph Sauveur and Felix Savart as well as by the Italian scientist Bartolomeo Grassi Landi.
This musical pitch is connected to the numbers used in the construction of a variety of ancient works and sacred places, such as the Great Pyramid of Egypt .Ancient Egyptian and Greek instruments have reportedly been found to be tuned to 432 Hz. and is the most practical, optimal, and most resonant tuning we have, while the A=440Hz frequency conflicts with the human energy centers from the heart to the base of the spine, while alternatively, stimulating ego and left-brain function, suppressing intuition and creative thinking. Interestingly, the difference between 440 and 741 Hz is known in musicology as the Devil’s Interval. The pitch promotes the suppression of human consciousness, while the frequencies we naturally resonate with, and which are the most biologically and psychologically enhancing are suppressed.
From a Biological Medical perspective, the part of the inner ear that converts acoustic impulses into electrical signals, the cochlea has a seashell-like spiral shape, that when bisected mathematically describe the Fibonacci sequence, or the Golden Ratio/Phi manifest in nature. According to the theoretical precepts of Tuning and Temperament, this recursiveness allows octaves to be decoded at the same point in each layer of the spiral, and may therefore be why we can discern octaves at all, meaning, the cochlea being the shape that it is allows us to identify differences in pitch, without which the octave concept would be almost meaningless and sonically undetectable to us.
The visionary Austrian genius Rudolph Steiner (1861-1925) described it thus:
“Music based on C=128hz (C note in concert A=432hz) will support humanity on its way towards spiritual freedom. The inner ear of the human being is built on C=128 hz.”
The fact that the Golden Ratio is so key in the biological process that causes an organism to develop its shape throughout nature suggests that there may be a fundamental relationship between the universal harmonic of 432 that shows up in our solar system and the Golden Ratio.
On a more Esoteric level A=432 is considered bio-energetically enhancing by naturopaths and healers when employed intentionally. Musician as healers will often employ the Solfeggio frequencies to activate the human energy centers for people seeking the benefits of a more transcendental treatment. The Solfeggio C at 528 Hz is widely associated with DNA activation, repair, and human transformation. This higher harmonic is the ignition switch for our bioenergetic anatomy turbo blasting our compassion, empathy, and intuition. There is evidence to suggest that A=440Hz tuning (above scientific “C” Prime=128/256/512 Hz, where A=432 Hz) disassociates the connection of consciousness to the body and creates anti-social conditions in humanity. The preference of modern musicians to play consonance, or Equal Temperament diminishes perception of tone and resonant harmony.
Adversely, A=440 tuning may produce a dissonant or aggressive effect on the mind creating contraindications in consciousness due to DNA’s innate sound-light translation mechanism. Many people appear to endorse the view that, while A=440 music is more exciting it is more mind-oriented and disconnected from the human feeling centres, particularly the heart. Disconnecting the heart from the brain is globally catastrophic for many reasons, but fundamentally, it disconnects us from our innate wisdom and compassion as sentient beings, thus disconnecting us from each other and the other intelligent beings we share this planet with (not to mention the planet itself which is a living intelligence.
The founder of cymatics, and the leading acoustician in Beethoven’s time was Ernst Chladni (1756-1827), His music theory textbook explicitly defined C as 256/512 Hz, the “scientific” tuning. (The A above middle C in this standard scale is 432 Hz.)
On a macro-cosmic level there is a definitive correlation between the 432 and the number of completion arising from the solar constant having to do with the completeness of the material world. Point of fact and for example the Diameter of the sun is equal to 864,000 miles (432 x 2). 8+6+4 = 18 (1+ 8) = 9 being the number of completion. The Diameter of moon is 2,160 miles (5 x 432 = 2,160) 2+1+6+0 resolves to a 9, as does 4+3+2 = 9 and 5 x 9 = 45 and 4 + 5 = 9. While the Precession of the Equinoxes of Earth amounts to 25,920 years (60 x 432) [x] 2+5+9+2+0 also equals 9, while 6 x 9 = 54 and 5 + 4 = 9 also.
Using 256Hz as the reference for C (where A=432), all occurrences of C are a power of 2. The Schumann resonance,or earth’s electromagnetic heartbeat existing within the atmosphere between the earth’s surface and our ionisphere, ranges from about 7.83 to 8 Hz on average, very close to 23. Not surprising considering the frequency of earth’s axial rotation: “Earth’s ‘pitch’ (cycles per second/Hertz) as it rotates is G, a fourth below the theoretical C that lies 24 octaves below middle C, when C=256Hz. So C=256/A=432 is in tune with the Earth’s rotation,” which is “in tune” with the speed of light, which is “in tune” with the diameter of the sun, which is “in tune” with the diameter of the moon, which is “in tune” with the precession of the equinoxes.
432 squared is 186,624 (1+8+6+6+2+4 = 9), being within 1 percent accuracy of the speed of light, (186,282 miles per second, which also resolves to a 9). The square root of the measured speed of light is 431.6. Therefore notes tuned relative to A432 harmonize directly with the light body allowing the vibrations to penetrate, and through entrainment, bring energetic essences into balance.
