No, it isn't. I've been a musician most of my life and have spent many, many hours tuning my ear to produce the 'sounds' I hear in my head as
well as interpreting external signals. The beautiful thing about music is that a single note means almost nothing, it is the distance between two
notes which gives the impression of varying emotions and movements.
For example, we don't interpret 440 to 450, we interpret the 10hz between
them. I understand how the structure of math can define the scales and octaves but the act of listening to music is a personal subjective experience
with many variables outside of the base equations. Again, your absolute certainty of your ideas is negating what could be a good discussion. And
again, to assume you fully understand quantum math enough to make such a bold statement in relation to a creative endeavor like music is
as far as having no aducation well i should have said no FORMAL education.
much can be learned without going to school you know.
anyone can obtain a basic knowledge of quantim physics ..
you just need to educate yourself.
Yes, anyone can educate themselves, but what have you done to do so? Have you studied quantum physics outside of this idea? Did you spend hours in
your universities library pouring over books? Anyone can read something and repeat it but true understanding takes time and energy. I hate saying
something like what I'm about to because it normally comes off wrong but I am 2 IQ points away from being a certifiable genius and my processing and
abstract abilities were 170+. That being said, quantum physics is not easy. It's elusive in the sense that when you think you understand one part
you read another to discover you had approached the previous idea from the wrong direction. It's almost as if it attempts to avoid detection, which
makes me insanely curious about it.
I say all of this because I want you to do more research. I think it's great you've found something that interests you so much and has made you
study something you previously knew little about. If you really want to find truth I'll give you some advice that helped me. Whatever you assume to
be right you must assume to be false. You can't close your mind to an idea that contradicts everything you assume to have figured out. It's
happened to me many times, it sucks, to spend time on an idea to discover that part or all of it may be wrong. It's even worse when you could have
seen it early on but your veracity for proving the idea blinded you to any opposition. Don't see it as time wasted (and i'm not saying everything
you've researched here is a waste, it isn't) but figuring out something is wrong is almost as much added knowledge as discovering something is
right. At least you've eliminated a possibility or narrowed your search down.
now i realize quantum physics is math/science and that music is just music to our ears and it appears that the two should not be related.....but they
now does this affect us as listeners and musicians....
on a quantum level....yes it does...exactly how...I`m not sure yet....
How can you say it affects us without a doubt but also say you don't know how it does? It's not about the material we are discussing but the terms
you are putting it in. A statement like that makes it seem that you aren't open to anything other than something you admittedly can not prove or
define. You are not countering with facts or ideas but merely restatements of what prompted the questions to you in the first place.
