Harmonics Theory, Part 13: Major and Secondary Scales

This blog series from FSC Science Director Ray Tomes will share the fundamentals of physics in layman's terms, showing how present theory must inevitably lead to all waves losing energy and forming harmonically related waves. The end result is a very specific detailed structure that matches the observed universe and explains many previously mysterious observations. This series was previously published.

Major and Secondary Scales

The following graph is based on only the main line harmonics, which as well as being detrended have had an additional adjustment to increase the variations at high harmonic number and reduce them at low harmonic number. This adjustment is not strictly necessary, but there is a clear trend for the waves to get smaller as we go from small to large harmonics and the idea is simply to make a more common basis throughout.

Relative Strength of Mainline Harmonics (adjusted)

There are a series of major peaks at about 4.5 differences in log10(H) the first of which is the strong harmonic 34560 (and its mate 17280). Early in my harmonics studies (about 1993) I realized that these peaks occurred after each time the prime 5 appeared and that they were at ratios of about 34560 apart. It was also seen that secondary peaks happened after each ratio of 3 in the main line. To make these things clear, the main line harmonic ratios are shown along the top of the graph. Additional peaks and troughs are caused by the higher primes which largely determine the variations in the shapes and spacings of these fairly regular peaks.
