Hello to you. How are you doing today? Yesterday class in Earth School was taking a field trip. There had been inner encouragement to expand the radius of my walks so I did. I’m so glad I did! The rose pictured here is just one of the many songs….voices I heard. People in town are so creative with placing flowers and plants in their yards. A voice that startled me was a goat that cried out when I went by. When I stopped to visit, I noticed one of their legs seemed to be bothering them. I wasn’t sure in the moment or right now as I write this if there is anything I can do. Prayers were said today for the goat and the goats owners. That’s the least I can do! I took several pictures on the walk and shared them on my Facebook but don’t really have the media space to share them here. The pink rose was probably the best one!
My brain muscles got flexed last night listening to part of an interview with Michio Kaku. He is known for exploring string theory. He is on a quest to find an equation that combines everything we know about the universe into one equation. He has a book called the God Equation where he talks about this. When I am trying to understand something that seems really complicated, I take pieces and examine them in the most simple ways I can find. When Michio said this:
“The mind of God, we believe, is
cosmic music. The music of strings
resonating through 11-dimensional
In the Beginning Was the… Music? – The
And the internet explained String Theory as this:
String theory proposes that
constituents of the universe
“strings” rather than point-
like particles. What we perceive as
particles are actually vibrations in loops of
string, each with its own characteristic
frequency. May 1, 2007

I went to You tube and found some things to help me see and imagine the sight and sound of one string being plucked:

This got me to thinking about Nikola Tesla’s quote:
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”
I thought about the energy that is generated from plucking a string, the pattern or frequency that is emitted (the note) and of course just the way the string vibrates after being plucked. It’s like Nikola knew about String Theory. There seems to be a dabbling into the exploration of the cosmic symphony all the way back to the Greek Philosopher Pythagoras:
Pythagoras Quotes: There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres.
What comes to mind thinking about all these pieces is as Tesla expressed, there is so much we are trying to put words, numbers, equations and theories to that exist in unseen realms. Like dark matter queries. What if all dark matter is is the space between the “notes” or a membrane or casing for what is tangible? What is a rainbow without bands of black to separate the colors?
Last night I went out and just looked at the twinkling stars. Each star an individual song.
