Music of the Spheres-Rev 1

We started the book talking about how the Big Bang might not have been such a Bang after all. In chapter 12 we introduced Pythagoras an his theorems, especially his understanding of "the music of the spheres", the mathematical relationships in the universe that reflect in the "math of music". Now, new research reported in Salon magazine explores how the bombardment of protons by electrons in lab experiments may have demonstrated ihow these process could have resulted in the production of matter as we know it. These bombardments are due to resonant activity, or extremely "mini-music". Here's the report:, and here's the research: Not quite Pythagoras, but curious in how a case for music can be made all the way back to the Big Bang!
