Earth emits an ear-piercing series of chirps and whistles that could be heard by any aliens who might be listening, astronomers have discovered.
One of Pythagoras’s main theories, which Kepler used, was that planets in motion create a noise which may be described as a musical note. Taken together the notes produced by the seven planetary orbits produced a chord which was described as the ‘Harmony of the Spheres’. From this concept comes the idea, expressed by Plato, that the study of music was the highest expression of philosophical (and hence astrological) practice.

Did anyone even fully read the article? I mean I believe in a living earth, but from what I read in the article, the sounds are just created "high above the planet, where charged particles from the solar wind collide with Earth's magnetic field. It is related to the phenomenon that generates the colorful aurora, or Northern Lights."
