I find this stuff extremely amazing and gives my every-day life a touch of the cosmos and the divine. The beauty of this is almost too perfect. No wonder they were more religious back then

Oh me too, and what a beautifully illustrated, well understood thread.
It is my opinion that he was very "in tune" with the One and not so religious.
His mind went deep into the cosmos and for that reason he understood the meanings of not just music, but life.

As an example of how astronomy and music is linked in Pythagorean music theory, look at the ratios below, using some core numbers of classical astronomy (some might recognise some of these numbers from the Apocalypse of John and the Bible, which is not odd, these numbers reflect the science of those days):
144,000 : 333.3333 = 432 (classical chamber tone)
144,000 : 444.4444 = 324 (a quart below the chamber tone)
144,000 : 500 = 288 (a quint below chamber tone)
216,000 : 666.6666 = 324
252,000 : 777.7777 = 324
216,000 : 500 = 432
These are only a few examples, I could go on to show the whole scale and put the different frequencies in relation with conceptual core-figures of classical astronomy and geometry, but I'll let these few figures above speak for themselves.

S&F Utnap -
Very informative threads you create, which I enjoy much, so I thank you
for dispensing your knowledge
The biblical number 144,000 seems to play into Pythogorean 3-4-5 method,
possibly a derivative of the Fibornacci sequence (the golden spiral) which
of course are calculated within the great pyramid of Giza.
Your statement where I have highlited, I would enjoy seeing that
completed works if ever you have the time to complete that task!?!
Again...enjoying your threads - be well

I have found a direct relationship between Pi and Phi. The golden ratio of the radius of a circle equals 1/10th of it's circumference. Ten horns of the Dragon anyone?
Maybe I'll provide more numbers later in the thread.

In the normal mode descriptions of Schumann resonances, the fundamental mode is a standing wave in the Earth–ionosphere cavity with a wavelength equal to the circumference of the Earth. This lowest-frequency (and highest-intensity) mode of the Schumann resonance occurs at a frequency of approximately 7.83 Hz, but this frequency can vary slightly from a variety of factors...

The Pythagorean tetractys (what mathematicians would call the "fourth triangular number") has been shown to be the "Rosetta stone" that deciphers fundamental information about the universe embodied in the sacred geometries of religions. To study this pioneering discovery, visit www.smphillips.8m.com. You will encounter for the first time the sublime, mathematical nature of the Pythagorean cosmos (in fact ALL levels of reality!).
A prayer of the Pythagoreans shows the importance of the Tetractys (sometimes called the "Mystic Tetrad"), as the prayer was addressed to it.
"Bless us, divine number, thou who generated gods and men! O holy, holy Tetractys, thou that containest the root and source of the eternally flowing creation! For the divine number begins with the profound, pure unity until it comes to the holy four; then it begets the mother of all, the all-comprising, all-bounding, the first-born, the never-swerving, the never-tiring holy ten, the keyholder of all".
As a portion of the secret religion, initiates were required to swear a secret oath by the Tetractys. They then served as novices for a period of silence lasting three years.

Interesting is that [2.1] is the measurement for astronomical units
