something interesting I discovered. It's probably not anything significant and I'm just reading into it too much... but take a look if you will. The first 7 distinct iterations of the harmonic series (an octave and 6 consecutive perfect fifths), starting on F, are: F  (F)  C  G  D  A  E  B If you number then diatonically (in the Lydian mode) you get 1  (8)  5  2  6  3  7  4 let's condense it.....18526374 remember that sequence... Now let us take the first 100 multiples of 7 (7 + 7 + 7 etc....) This gives us 100 sums, let us arrange them in a 10x10 pattern. 007, 014, 021, 028, 035, 042, 049, 056, 063, 070, 077, 084, 091, 098, 105, 112, 119, 126, 133, 140, 147, 154, 161, 168, 175, 182, 189, 196, 203, 210, 217, 224, 231, 238, 245, 252, 259, 266, 273, 280, 287, 294, 301, 308, 315, 322, 329, 336, 343, 350, 357, 364, 371, 378, 385, 392, 399, 406, 413, 420, 427, 434, 441, 448, 455, 462, 469, 476, 483, 490, 497, 504, 511, 518, 525, 532, 539, 546, 553, 560, 567, 574, 581, 588, 595, 602, 609, 616, 623, 630, 637, 644, 651, 658, 665, 672, 679, 686, 693, 700. Notice anything? All of the numbers in each column share the same number in the ones place that is unique to each column. The first column is 7, then 4, then 1, 8, 5, 2, 9, 6, 3. If we assign each number to it's diatonic equivalent in the F Lydian scale we get. 741852963 (this is the harmonic series, bear in mind 8 = 1, and 9 = 2. 18526374) it just starts on the 7 Now look at the descending numbers in the tens column from left to right. The diatonically numbered sequence is approximately the harmonic series. Here is the multiples chart with their numbers changed to musical notes. (1 and 8 both equal F, 2 = G, 3 = A, and so on...) we are looking for FCGDAEB, think of it as a crossword puzzle. ,__E,__FB,__GF,__GF,__AC,__BG,__BG,__CD,__DA,__E_, ,_EE,__FB,__GF,__GF,_F_C,_FFG,_FFG,_FGD,_FAA,_FB_, ,FBE,_FCB,_FDF,_FDF,_FEC,_FFG,_FFG,_FGD,_G_A,_GF_, ,GFE,_GGB,_GAF,_GAF,_GBC,_GCG,_GCG,_GDD,_GEA,_GF_, ,GFE,_GGB,_A_F,_A_F,_AFC,_AGG,_AGG,_AAD,_ABA,_AC_, ,ACE,_ADB,_AEF,_AEF,_AFC,_AGG,_AGG,_B_D,_BFA,_BG_, ,BGE,_BAB,_BBF,_BBF,_BCC,_BDG,_BDG,_BED,_BFA,_BG_, ,BGE,_C_B,_CFF,_CFF,_CGC,_CAG,_CAG,_CBD,_CCA,_CD_, ,CDE,_CEB,_CFF,_CFF,_CGC,_D_G,_D_G,_DFD,_DGA,_DA_, ,DAE,_DBB,_DCF,_DCF,_DDC,_DEG,_DEG,_DFD,_DGA,_E__. (copy and paste this into a text editor and change the font to "courier new") The harmonic series is all over this. Please help me find out why!
