1.0 out of 5 stars Is the Universe in 'tune'?, July 8, 2006
By Steve S. Jones (Wisconsin, USA) - See all my reviews
People have been trying for years to prove that the founding cause of the Universe is natural occuring harmonies. These theories are usually the occult disguising itself as science. If these theories are correct there needs to be a 'fundamental' frequency (a demiurge style 'god of harmony') to begin the resonance. No such thing exists - see Scientific American, August 2005 'Is the Universe Out of a Tune?'
