What is Black and White in Sound?
By Steven M. Miller, May 20, 2014
If the color spectrum of vision is analogous to the audible frequency spectrum of sound, what is the aural analog to black & white photography?
In sound, we often say that timbre/texture is ‘sound color’ – reinforcing this analogy. Removing color from an image leaves the simple fact of intensity of light. Does ‘removing’ timbre from sound even make sense in this same way? Continue reading
Colors of noise
In audio engineering, electronics, physics, and many other fields, the color of a noise signal (a signal produced by a stochastic process) is generally understood to be some broad characteristic of its power spectrum.
Different “colors” of noise have significantly different properties: for example, as audio signals they will sound differently to human ears, and as images they will have a visibly different texture. Therefore, each application typically requires noise of a specific “color”.
This sense of “color” for noise signals is similar to the concept of timbre in music (which is also called “tone color”); Continue reading
Magnetism is a class of physical phenomena that includes forces exerted by magnets on other magnets. It has its origin in electric currents and the fundamental magnetic moments of elementary particles. These give rise to a magnetic field that acts on other currents and moments.
All materials are influenced to some extent by a magnetic field. The strongest effect is on permanent magnets, which have persistent magnetic moments caused by Continue reading
Electric charge is the physical property of matter that causes it to experience a force when close to other electrically charged matter. There are two types of electric charges – positive and negative. Positively charged substances are repelled from other positively charged substances, but attracted to negatively charged substances; negatively charged substances are repelled from negative and attracted to positive. An object will be negatively charged if it has an excess of electrons, and will otherwise be positively charged or uncharged. Continue reading
MATCHING DNA BASE PAIRS TO I CHING
By Douglas Klimesh, 2010
SEARCHING FOR A SPECIFIC LANGUAGE IN DNA:
As there seems some type of language stored in DNA introns, the quest is to decipher this language. At first glance there appears an uncanny relationship between DNA and ancient Hebrew. If God was to put language in DNA, likely it would be Hebrew. Despite all investigation attempts, the relationship just doesn’t work. However, three base pairs of a DNA codon makes 64 possible combinations, which is the same number of I Ching hexagrams, making this relationship more likely. Continue reading

The I Ching and the Genetic Code
By M.Alan Kazlev and Christián Begué
Some years back I was very impressed by an observation in a book called The I Ching and the Genetic Code by Dr. Martin Schönberger (unfortunately I loaned it out many years ago and never got it back – moral, don’t loan you books!), pointing out the correlation between the 64 kua and the nucleotide sequence and amino acid bases in the RNA/DNA molocule.
As Tony Smith points out, this shows that the genetic code, the I Ching, and the D4-D5-E6 physics model are all just different Continue reading
THE FOUR CHILDREN (or SONS) OF HORUS
The name of the “Sons of Horus” is confusing: they are clearly quoted in several texts as being the descendants of Horus [the Elder]. They are, however, exclusively found in a funerary context.
The funerary divinities (or genii, because they never had a cult nor a temple anywhere) correspond to Amseti, Hapy, Duamutef and Qebehsenuef. They are found in the pyramid texts dating to the Old Kingdom. There exists a query about the original sex of Amseti, whose name is sometimes represented ending in just the feminine terminal “T”.

Anemoi – Venti
THE ANEMOI were the gods of the four directional winds–Boreas the North-Wind, Zephryos the West-Wind, Notos the South-Wind, and Euros the East-Wind. They were closely connected with the seasons : Boreas was the cold breath of winter, Zephyros the god of spring breezes, and Notos the god of summer rain-storms.
The Wind-Gods were represented as either winged, man-shaped gods, or horse-like divinities, which grazed the shores of the river Okeanos or were stabled in the caverns of Aiolos Hippotades, “the Horse-Reiner,” king of the winds. Continue reading
Wind – Definition
Classical wind names
In Greek mythology, the four winds were personified as gods. Roman writers gave them Latin names.
Note: the “north wind”, for example, is the wind that blows from the north, not towards it.
Greek – Latin
north wind Boreas – Aquilo
south wind Notos – Auster
east wind Euros – Eurus
west wind Zephyros – Favonius
north-west wind Skiron or Skeiron – Caurus or Corus
north-east wind Kaikias – Caecius
south-east wind Apeliotus or Euros – Volturnus or Vulturnus
south-west wind Lips or Livos – Africus or Afer ventus Continue reading
How Wind Direction, Speed, And Location Determine Wind Types & Wind Names
Ever hear of westerly winds? Santa Ana winds? Chinook winds? Gale winds?
If any of these names ring a bell, it’s because these are wind names — different types of wind based on their location in the world, speed, as well as the general wind direction.
Meteorologists, scientists, and other observers of weather have given names to all types of weather phenomena.
Wind is one of those things meteorologists have studied for a long time. While wind is essentially a mass of moving air, it’s the wind direction, speed, and/or the location it’s coming from or going to that often decides the name for a certain type of wind. Continue reading
