The ‘Cymatics-Cuboctahedron’ Conundrum

At day four of my viral cold I’m not the sharpest tack on the corkboard, but when I saw these two images, one after another this morning: the Cymatics individual 8 x 8 sound patterns, and then the Resonance Science postings, something clicked somewhere in my fuzzy head. Understanding this is all about visualizing frequencies—light wave and sound wave frequencies.”

We are trying so hard to get our heads around the underlying purpose and composition/structure of what we call “REALITY,” that the concept of everything existing solely as points within a broad spectrum of ‘frequencies’ is as close as we can currently come to making sense of it all.

This was the Cymatics post today along with the above image on the left:


 “Philosophy is written in that great book whichever is before our eyes – I mean the universe – but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols in which it is written.” ― Galileo

Here the 2-D Cymatics image on the left is visualizing how distinct sound waves form 64 geometric patterns to represent specific frequencies of sound vibration; while the Resonance Science “Cuboctahedron” 3-D image on the right, shows the ‘12 octave semitones in spherical relationship to each other’ describing it as:

 “The musical system known as the Circle of fifths maps perfectly to what Buckminster Fuller called the ‘vector equilibrium’: the Cuboctahedron. This same geometry is theorized by Nassim Haramein as one that could account for why we measure space itself as nearly infinitely full of energy (in the form of quantum vacuum fluctuations) even though we perceive it to be completely empty: because it is in a perfectly balanced state where all vectors in the geometry are of equal length, twelve around one

Plus a little more background on Octaves and Frequencies:

In music, an octave (Latin: octavus: eighth) or perfect octave (sometimes called the diapason)[2] is the interval between one musical pitch and another with double its frequency. The octave relationship is a natural phenomenon that has been referred to as the “basic miracle of music,” the use of which is “common in most musical systems.”[3] The interval between the first and second harmonics of the harmonic series is an octave.”  (Wiki)


Why do notes an octave apart sound the same?

An octave is the difference in pitch between two notes where one has twice the frequency of the other. Two notes which are an octave apart always sound similar and have the same note name, while all of the notes in between sound distinctly different, and have other note names.”


In terms of physics, an octave is the distance between one note and another note that’s double its frequency. For instance, the note A4 is the sound of a vibration at 440 Hz. The note A5 is the sound of a vibration at 880 Hz. Going in the other direction, the note A3 is the sound of a vibration at 220Hz. … And How Is an Octave Divided?  In Western music, octaves are connected in 12 equal intervals. Each of these 12 intervals brings us to a new note. …”


Now with all that background info and the images above, consider that all of us are energy beings who are capable of holding/maintaining specific operating frequencies ourselves—individually and collectively. And when those individual frequencies rise higher, the collective frequency also rises higher.

When we collectively manage to reach a “higher frequency octave” than previously held (meaning when we double the previous collective operating frequency), we will theoretically then shift into a higher-octave operating environment.

So for what it’s worth, I’m all for raising our frequencies into the next higher octave, because to me this one has way too much lower-frequency dissonance and disharmony.
