One response to “Music of the Spheres

  1. I keep hammering on about this, but it’s clear this is a more central thread than is generally recognised by the hard scientists: the entire thing grew from the music aspect of the quadrivium, so once again I’ll quote Craig Wright’s the Maze and the Warrior as a good baseline for where they started from. I’m simply amazed they got what they did from it!
