||Pythagoras,Egypt & Music of the Spheres
"The Greek mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras, said :“There is geometry in the humming of the strings. There is music in the spacing of the spheres.” He taught that the planets all emit their own unique orbital resonance based on their orbital revolution, He was able to show that sounds frequencies has numerical ratios and how celestial sounds impacts our life on Earth. This sacred principle of :Music of the Spheres or Musica universalis is for me definitely a sacred knowledge from Ancient Egypt he learned from the High priests of Egypt, to some extent depicted in this painting in the tomb of Rekhmire, vizir and governor of Luxor during the reign of Pharaoh Tuthmosis III at the necropolis of Sheikh Abd el-Qurna, where you see an egyptian women playing harp. All is embeded in the harp The portative harp is built as a boat sailing in the comic waters, the 9 strings of the harp are representing the 9 planets of our solar system,. The musician lady is playing the harmonic sounds of the planets for the guidance of the soul of Rekhmire. On the top of the harp you can see the head of the god Shu with a feather on his headdress. Shu is representing the space between the earth and the heavens. There, he is depicted as at the top of a boat mast or flagstaff because he is connected to the wind being the first to give the breath of life… for that his name means "He who Rises Up"
