The two new studies found that the musical scales most commonly used over the centuries are those that come closest to mimicking the physics of the human voice, and that we understand emotions expressed through music because the music mimics the way emotions are expressed in speech. Composers have long exploited the perception of minor chord music as sad and major chord music as happy, now the Duke team thinks they know why....
..."There is a strong biological basis to the aesthetics of sound," Purves said. "Humans prefer tone combinations that are similar to those found in speech."
This evidence suggests the main biological reason we appreciate music is because it mimics speech, which has been critical to our evolutionary success, said Purves, who is also director of Duke's Neuroscience and Behavioral Disorders Program and executive director of the A*STaR Neuroscience Research Partnership at the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School in Singapore.
...The powers that be have militarized music for cultural manipulation, in part, by making A=440Hz “standard tuning” the international ISO 16-standard (done in 1953). This refers to the musical note A above middle C. A=440Hz frequency music conflicts with human energy centers (chakras). Musicologist Brian T. Collins complains that “[t]he current tuning of music based on A=440 Hz does not harmonize on any level that corresponds to cosmic movement, rhythm, or natural vibration.”
440 Hz stimulates the third eye chakra, thereby working on the ego and left-brain “thinking” function. At the same time, it suppresses intuition and creativity. This frequency also causes listeners to experience greater aggression, psychosocial agitation, and emotional distress. At this frequency, the body vibrates musically, audibly and subliminally to a frequency that resonates with aggression and in dissonance with love. This can predispose people to mental and physical illnesses...

Dead Thread huh?
hmmmmm.....I know I`m not the greatest at explaining things
but since every song,movie soundtrac,every time a music note is played
which means every radio, ipod, tv broadcast..ect.. is tuned to a frequency
that does not match the the natual frequency of all life including
our cells and dna(this can all be verified by science.)
According to Ananda Bosman, international researcher and musician, archaic Egyptian instruments that have been unearthed are largely tuned to A=432Hz. Ancient Greeks tuned their instruments predominantly to 432Hz. Within the archaic Greek Eleusenian Mysteries, Orpheus is the god of music, death and rebirth, and was the keeper of the Ambrosia and the music of transformation. His instruments were tuned at 432Hz.
A consortium called The PEAR Proposition: Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research are pioneers in the field of archaeo-acoustics, merging archaeology and sound science. Directed by Physicist Dr. Robert Jahn, the PEAR group set out in 1994 to test acoustic behavior in megalithic sites such as Newgrange and Wayland's Smithy in the UK. They found that the ancient chambers all sustained a strong resonance at a sound frequency between 95 and 120 hertz: well within the range of a low male voice.
In subsequent OTSF testing, stone rooms in ancient temples in Malta were found to match the same pattern of resonance, registering at the frequency of 110 or 111 hz. This turns out to be a significant level [right] for the human brain. Whether it was deliberate or not, the people who spent time in such an environment were exposing themselves to vibrations that impacted their minds.
