Is 432Hz the new 440Hz?

Scientists have proved that the 432Hz frequency has many advantages over its’ sibling 440Hz. Even in our own bodies, we are made up of energy vibrating at a wide range of different frequencies. Among these scientists to prove 432Hz is good for you, they also had an interest in music, like Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla. They asked the question: can sound frequencies affect us on a physiological level. The answer after years of research by scientists, was a resounding “Yes they can”.

Frequencies affect everything in the physical world and in music it is strangely similar to that of a chef’s job: by mixing certain ingredients with others he or she can alter the overall flavour of the meal. The science of Cymatics (the science of sound waves and vibration) shows us how frequencies affect water memory on a molecular level.

The science of Cymatics illustrates how sound vibrations and frequencies move through a medium such as air, water or sand and how they directly alter the vibration of matter within that medium.

How Does 432Hz Affect Us?

Well, the answer is quite simple once you remember that we all hold a certain vibrational frequency, not to mention it is estimated that about 70.3% of our bodies are made up of water. So from there on we can probably expect that vibrational frequencies can most certainly affect our own vibrational state on a molecular level. Some people might call this pseudoscience. However the data do not lie. Every expression through sound, emotion or thought holds a specific frequency that influences everything around it. It is much like a single drop of water can create a larger ‘rippling’ effect in a pond or larger body of water.

With this concept in mind, let us now bring our attention to the frequency of the music that we are surrounded by every day. Almost all of the music worldwide we know today has been tuned to A=440 Hz, which the International Standards Organisations promoted in 1953.

432Hz – The New Science Of Tuning

Studies now, however, regard this 440 Hz as being disharmonious with the natural resonance. This is where the ‘432Hz Theory’ comes into play. 432Hz is said to be mathematically consistent with the patterns of the universe. Studies reveal that 432Hz tuning vibrates with the universe’s golden mean PHI and unifies the properties of light, time, space, matter, gravity and magnetism with biology, the DNA code and consciousness.

Now the next part has not been proved and can be considered as pseudoscience. It is said that when our atoms and DNA start to resonate in harmony with the spiralling pattern of nature on 432Hz, our sense of connection is said to be magnified.

Dameon Keller has some interesting observations on this.

“All of the frequencies in the spectrum are related in octaves, from gamma rays to subharmonics. These colours and notes are also related to our Chakras and other important energy centers. If we are to understand that Chakras are connected to the Seven Rays of the Solar Spectrum, then the notes and frequencies we use for the same should be the same. A432Hz is the tuning of the Cosmic Keyboard or Cosmic Pitchfork. As opposed to the A440Hz modern ‘standard, it places C# at 136.10 Hz ‘Om,’ which is the main note of the Sitar in classical Indian music and the pitch of the chants of the Tibetan monks, who tell us ‘It comes from nature.” See more: click here.

432Hz Can You Hear It?

Audiophiles have also stated that A=432Hz music seems to be non-local and can fill an entire room, whereas A=440Hz can be perceived as directional or linear in sound resonation.

You can see a 432Hz melody being played for yourself: click here. Notice that the 432 Hz sounds ‘out of tune‘? Well, it is supposed to sound like that. According to scientists, all the music that we know is always a tiny degree sharp.

It is said that because music is 8Hz faster than it should (naturally) be it drives us to be more energetic and competitive in nature.

Much of the above seems to stray into unproven, less than incontestable science. It is, nonetheless, fascinating.

  1. Awful lot of bullshit science in this post. It’s ALL pseudoscience. Not just the end bit.

      Pseudo perhaps. Debatable for sure. Welcome to the internet Mark.
