Thanks for the info, but that really doesn't help this topic one bit. We're looking for the pure math involved, and more particularly how the mathematical frequencies of different intervals used in different scale systems can be mapped to a 2, 3 or even 4 dimensional lattice, and what the shape of that mapping becomes.

Based on what I have been looking into, this and this seem to fit and may open some very interesting doors. I am well aware of Hutchison's reputation and the fact that he is a loon, but before you discredit him, remember that the military spent a good bit of money trying to get him to be able to reproduce his results. There had to be something there to start with. Almost every alternative fuel theory involved harmonics to some degree in the process.
Another interesting side note would be this.
May be nothing, may be something.
edit to add: sorry about the auto start music in the second link. It always annoys me, but at least it's good music.edit on 28-3-2011 by network dude because: apology
As a life long musician and conspiracy theorist I have often wondered if there are certain properties to music that go beyond simply the artistic and entertaining ones. Part of this stems from some Indian religious teachings where the universe itself was created from a musical note, its vibration and noise causing chaos in the otherwise silent and peaceful nothingness of endless empty space, prompting an angry reaction in which life was born. However additionally I have often been amazed when it comes to some instrumental pieces I have heard for the first time, that while listening to it, my minds eye and emotions conjured up images that later turned out to be what the song was all about when I learned it’s title.
And that might be why we have a harder time visualizing the relationships between notes in chords or melodic structures... we can't take it all in at once as easily. With a painting or a photograph, we can spend hours looking at it and analyzing it. Sound is fleeting.
