Unfortunately, a stack of acoustically perfect fifths will never return to its starting point.
The most audible overtones of a tonic or keynote all have simple ratios, like 2:1 (octave), or 3:2 (fifth note of scale), and the 4th note of the scale, whose first different overtone is the given tonic, has a ratio of 4:3 . In fact these three notes are present in virtually every musical scale known on earth.
Infants, she finds, smile when the air is filled with perfect fourths and perfect fifths--chords or sequences separated by five half steps, like C and F, or seven half steps, like C and G, respectively. But babies hate the ugly tritone, in which two notes are separated by six half steps, like C and F sharp, and sound so unresolved and unstable that in medieval times it was known as "the devil."
The brain seems to be a sponge for music and, like a sponge in water, is changed by it. The brain's left and right hemispheres are connected by a big trunk line called the corpus callosum. When they compared the corpus callosum in 30 nonmusicians with the corpus callosum in 30 professional string and piano players, researchers led by Dr. Gottfried Schlaug of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston found striking differences. The front part of this thick cable of neurons is larger in musicians, especially if they began their training before the age of 7.

"If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe." — Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla made a Major Earthquake / Cape Yakataga, Alaska - September 4th, 1899: "Earthquake location: Cape Yakataga, Alaska. Earthquake magnitude: 7.9. Number of recorded fatalities: 0." Nikola Tesla made another Major Earthquake / Yakutat Bay, Alaska - September 10th, 1899: "Earthquake location: Yakutat Bay, Alaska. Earthquake magnitude: 8.0. Number of recorded fatalities: 0." September 3rd, September 6th & September 9th 1899 were the real days of the Colorado Springs experiments that yielded a rough ride that week of September 3rd-4th, September 6th-7th and September 9th-10th as is the official record 111 years ago when the government paid off Aleutian Indians and eight gold prospectors in the otherwise uninhabited area of Alaska in the greatest story of all time. The three, the six and the nine of Yakutat Bay in 1899. Put your money on those odds for a key to the universe bank bitch. On my skin, punk. ***to be continued***

These are all very colorful surmissings, but there is no devil, and when taken in their most bare form each point of this logic is very flawed for many reasons, for it relies very heavily on concepts developed by man, in his solemn frailty, such as numbers, days, and creatures (devil), if you wish to tell us of an interesting theory then thank you it is a brilliant tale, but if you are serious and i hope you are not, then stop because you will only lock yourself in a false train of artistically contrived logic as the bible has for billions....
