THE MYSTIC CHORD OF SINGING BOWLS

Alexander Scriabin’s mystic chord was manifested to create a link up between the


 Ascending Human Kingdom and the Descending Nature/Angelic Kingdom.  Separated by


 the dissonance of the Tritone/Aug 4th.  Visualize the two North ends of two magnets


pushing each other away.Think of the effort to go up a down escalator. This force is a


repellant or levitational force.


 


It is naturally produced when the thickness of the volume of living tones become more and


more compressed  within the acoustical space and white noise is heard.


 


To connect these different kingdoms Human and Nature is a Green Power or a re-greening


power of holistic resonance. When the green becomes white, transparency occurs and


self-healing is most resonant. This harmonic phenomenon arises organically in the gong’s


 procreation of tone cells when it is played continuously.


 


EITHER BOWLS OR GONGS OR TUNING FORKS OR CHIMES MAY BE SO-TUNED

There are 4 holistic octaves when traveling upwards from C to C5


(meaning that the first and thirteenth notes are the same an octave apart


like in C to C1)


 


C                F#               E1             A1    D2     A2    E3     A#3   F#4    C 5


Scriabin may have thought this as an ascending ripple up and a descending ripple down


or both at once.  Or as a full chord simultaneously mixed and spontaneously merging.


It is the Dance of Lila between the ascending force and the descending force,


between dematerialization and re-materialization.


 


As we near the 2025 May Full Moon when the Descending and Ascending Chords


of Nature and Human will create an opening for the transmutation from war to peace


through conflict into functional /dissonant harmony of working together and sharing


our gifts to each other.
