You remember Pythagoras, right?
The Pythagorean Theorem.
Yeah, that’s all I knew of him too. Turns out that there’s more to this 6th century B.C. guy.
We have him to thank for rock and roll and pop and country and ALL that. He was the first to connect mathematics to music.
He discovered that the ratio between string lengths and thicknesses to each other created the most pleasing sound and that was true not only in string instruments, but in all sound.
Harmonies and Octaves!
Let’s turn to Donald Duck for a breakdown ~
He even went so far as to say that there were strings connecting the planets and stars in our universe and that when those strings are played, it creates the perfect harmonious tone. A heavenly tone and a complete octave. Angels singing, if you will. It’s called The Music of the Spheres.
Check this out:
Okay, so it’s crazy to think that there are these giant strings connecting the universe, right?
That’s what I thought too, but scientists today have a relatively new theory ~ it’s called String Theory.
I love this Michio Kaku guy!
So, maybe strings connecting the universe is not so crazy after all. Hmmm?
All of this talk takes me back to the Red String belief. Could it be true?? Maybe.
I will say this. I don’t discount the belief or the theory. If new discoveries and mysteries of the universe have taught us anything, it’s that we don’t know it all and that anything is possible.
What do you think of string theory? Had you ever heard of it? I’d love to hear your take on it!
