Tre, the meaning of the number 3

Tre, the meaning of the number 3

There is a famous quote from Tesla that says: “If you understand the deeper meaning of the numbers 3, 6 and 9 you understand the secrets of the universe” Interestingly enough when you dive deeper in the healing frequencies combinations of these numbers come back often. Tre means 3 and this blog is about the meaning of the number three.

Clear is that the number 3 is one of the building blocks of life. A triangle is one of the most stable building blocks as many discoveries are divided by 3. Why the interest from Flower of Sound in the number 3? Collateral Nature’s new single is called Tre and we dived for the 3D video deeper in the meaning of the number 3. Also Tre is the third single of Collateral Nature’s Morning Mars album (Breathe! Robot (1), Morning Mars (2) and now Tre (3)).

The inspiration of Tre came from the 3 instruments that are used to create the song: “Written in one go with a precise bass line in mind, the song is as simple as it is hypnotic. It supports the evolution of the Rhodes piano and the drums that draw you into the psychedelic soul of the track.” Claudio Vittori produced and composed the song. You can watch the video here below:

You can listen the whole album via different streaming channels from Spotify to Tidal: see this smart link for all the links: https://distribute.avid.com/smartlink.cfm?MTAwMDAwNDg0OTAy

More interesting facts about the number 3:

 

The spelling:

3 (numererological)

III (roman)

…— (morse)

三 (Chineese) and sounds like the word “alive” (生 pinyin shēng, Cantonese: saang),

 

Symbolism

If you look at symbols there are many that show the unity of three different elements or parts. Think of the Trinity symbol, but also the Chintamani or the Valknut, the Trefolt or the Threefold or the Celtic Trinity symbol.

 

Hand symbols

Funny is that there two different handsymbols to show the number 3 with your fingers. In Inglorious Basterds the film they get cought as spies because they use the fingers the wrong way to order three beer. The two ways are: sticking up the 3 fingers in the middle of the hand or the thumb and the two fingers next to it.

 

Some mathematical facts about the number 3:

3 (three) is a:

The trisection of the angle was one of the three famous problems of antiquity.

Old counting systems counted up to three “One, Two, Three” and thereafter “Many” to describe counting limits.

Counting to three is common in situations where a group of people wish to perform an action in synchrony: 1, 2 ,3 go !,

 

Some other interesting facts about the number 3:

The Roman numeral III stands for a giant star.

Three is the atomic number of lithium.

Three is the ASCII code of “End of Text“.

Humans perceive the universe to have three spatial dimensions.

The triangle, a polygon with three edges and three vertices, is the most stable physical shape.

There are three primary colors.

In European alchemy, the three primes (Latintria prima) were saltsulfur and mercury.

The three doshas are the basis of Ayurvedic medicine.

In Pythagorean numerology the number 3 is the digit of communication. and encourages the expansion of creativity, sociability between people and movement.

In spirituality and religion there is often a holy trinity, some examples:

Some sayings:

Third time’s the charm” refers to the superstition that after two failures the third trial will succeed.

Luck, especially bad luck, is often said to “come in threes”.

Then the number three is used in sport so often that i won’t mention it here 😉

 

Some more scientific facts about 3:

There are three main types of stable particles: the proton, the neutron, and the electron. These are the three building blocks of atoms. Scientists say that each proton and each neutron is built from smaller particles called quarks. There are three quarks in a proton and 3 quarks in a neutron.

On the subatomic level there are three types of charges: positive charges like protons have, negative charges like electrons have, and neutral charges like neutrons have.

The three main properties associated with subatomic particles: mass, charge, and spin.

There are three types of “color charge” involved in the strong nuclear force: what are called red charges, blue charges, and green charges.

There are three dimensions of space: height, width, and depth.

There are three main types of matter: gaseous, liquid, and solid.

There are three main types of massive objects: planets, stars, and galaxies.

There are also three main types of galaxies: spiral galaxies, irregular galaxies, and elliptical galaxies.

Almost all types of galaxies are one of these three types

There are three laws of motion,

there are also three types of natural laws: the laws of physics, the laws of chemistry, and the laws of biology.

Past, present, & future are the three major divisions of time.

 

3, 6, 9

Nikola Tesla: “If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6, and 9, then you would have a key to the universe.”

Doubling 1, then 2, and so on creates a pattern that excludes 3 6 and 9.

Scientist Marko Rodin believes that 3 6 9, then, represents a “flux field” or a vector from the third to the fourth dimension.

Tesla loved the trifecta of “energy, frequency, and vibration” which he believed contained the “secrets of the universe.”

Start-up to Watch

Start-up to Watch

Flower of Sound has been selected by Music Ally as one of the 60 Start ups to Watch in the music/tech industry. It is a proud honor for us to be on this list. Our focus for the coming year is to prepare the launch of our VR/AR application and to develop further our spatial audio music catalogue for well-being.

The report reads: “There is something powerful to be explored at the intersection of virtual reality and health-tech. Flower of Sound is a good example of that, with an app currently in beta designed for VR headsets like Facebook’s Oculus Quests. Its tagline is “Be the DJ of your own well-being”. What that means is a meditation app using spatial audio, but with the listener playing a far more active role than simply sitting back and blissing out. Here, users will be able to interact with the individual sounds and move them around their virtual environment. Flower of Sound has already joined two schemes – the Jump European Music Market Accelerator and the Music Tech Europe Academy – to help as it prepares for launch.”

About Music Ally and the 60 Start ups to Watch list:
Music Ally’s editorial focus is industrywide, but in the last few years they have intentionally focused more on the technology and startups which drive innovation in the music business. This quarterly report is entirely devoted to those startups and emerging technologies. In the quartely report, they have rounded up 60 startups that they think are particularly worthy of your attention. This is not a “best new startups of 2021” list – instead, it’s a snapshot of our view of this ecosystem: these are early-stage tech companies (or ones new to the music industry) that we have encountered for the first time this year. https://musically.com

The hidden meaning behind the hexagon

The hidden meaning behind the hexagon

The hexagon is one of the building blocks of nature, representing many frequencies. It’s a geometric shape that is integrated in a lot of sacred geometry shapes. At Flower of Sound, we are very inspired by the hexagon — we have embedded it everywhere from our logo, to the lights we use in our immersive sound shows.

Hexagons are the building blocks of life

A hexagon has six equal sides and is one of the building blocks of life and one of the principal governing patterns dominant in the natural world.. From honeycombs to the center of snowflakes, the hexagon is everywhere. When placed under a horoscope these objects reveal one of the most efficient “tile” shapes to build, as discovered in 1999 by Thomas Hales.

Hexagons are everywhere

When used to build, hexagons minimize the amount of material needed, and which is why honeybees build in hexagons. It is also at the molecular core of water and therefore also in each of us, as we are made of at least 70% water. When hydrogen molecules freeze and bond, they form hexagons (ie – the center of a snowflake). The hexagon is also found in the structure of DNA — it forms the chains that produce the double-helix macromolecule.

Hexagons as sacred symbols

You can find the hexagon in many ancient symbols. In sacred geometry and ancient sagas the hexagon represents the potential for life. It is found in sacred shapes like the Flower of Life, which is seen in ancient architecture around the world. Because of its two interlocking triangles, the hexagon as a symbol often stands for harmony and balance and also male and female energy . When you draw a six pointed star the points form together as a hexagon. This can beautifully seen in Dr. Masaru Emoto’s videos showing the crystallization of water reacting to pure tones, images and therefore frequencies.

Hexagons and Flower of Sound

In our search for scientific validation for our frequencies, we found that certain shapes correspond with the frequencies we most often use. For example, Pythagoras is widely known for using frequencies to explain mathematics. One of the shapes that inspired us the most is the hexagon and we incorporate it into pretty much all of our designs. It’s such an essential shape and building block of life – it’s in water, honeycombs, cymatics, and even the feel-good chemical Dopamine — and it is at the core of who we are as well.

The power of 3 in our compositions

According to Tesla and Pythagoras the essential numbers in the universe are 3, 6 and 9. If you use Pythagoras’ theorem in the Solfeggio frequencies they all add up to 3, 6 or 9. In all of nature, these three numbers keep coming back.

396 – 9
417 – 3
528 – 6
639 – 9
741 – 3
852 – 6
963 – 9

The common denominator of all these numbers is the number 3. This is one of the reasons why we compose our pure tone music using three frequency layers into one.

  1. The first layer is a low base tone, or a slow sound wave, is derived from the original tone.
  2. Then, we layer in the original frequency.
  3. And finally, we layer in the surrounding ambient sound, based on the even harmonic. This way our compositions are more effective, stay pure and are easier on the ear.

There are no extra keyboard tracks, instruments or music added to our compositions, to further retain the purity of the sound. We do use different sound healing techniques, such as the use of harmonics, to make our frequencies more effective.

Fun facts about hexagons

On Saturn’s north pole, there’s an enduring cloud formation in the shape of a hexagon. The total size is bigger than Earth.

In California there’s something known as the Devils Postpile. Less than 100,000 years ago, a lava flow spawned these odd structures. These structures are basalt columns in the shape of hexagons. As it turns out, a 120-degree crack releases the most tension. And 120 degrees is a hexagon’s interior angle.

We represent organic compounds with hexagons. Most organic compounds have carbon backbones, as carbon is superabundant and bonds well with other elements. When one carbon atom bonds with another carbon atom, the bond angle is less 120 degrees. But when six carbon atoms bond — due to electron pair repulsion — it’s an even 120. As a result, six bonded carbons — benzene — make a perfect hexagon, also known as a benzene ring.

The hexagon is rooted in the number 3 in many ways and ancient philosophers were intrigued by the interaction between 2 and 3 . They symbolized it by the image of a “marriage” as 2 is even/female, 3 is uneven/male to show that the hexagon functions as a stable foundation of which the two components support each other mutually. The hexagon was used as a symbol to convey the spiritual attainment of an individual on the mummified body in Egypt and it is still used by trines and communities today to refer to the same notion.

Confusion all around 8D, Binaural and Binaural beats

Confusion all around 8D, Binaural and Binaural beats

You probably have heard about the hype called 8D. Often it is a track that is produced in such a way when you listen it on your headphones you can hear the singers come from different directions. It is extremely cool and also when well done very nice to listen to. It is a new sensation and experience in music. Only it is NOT 8D or anything like it. It is something called immersive sound, spatial audio or better say tridimensional sound ( axes are 3 x y z not 8 ! ) and in this case because it is explicitly made for the use on headphones called Binaural. So if you like to to start producing this, find more tracks like this, look for binaural produced music.

There are a few side notes to this.

  1. Binaural produced music is in essence a normal audio file so you can get the feeling of immersive sound/music but you can not reproduce it with a normal or even Dolby Atmos speaker system.
  2. Binaural produced music is something else then binaural beats. Binaural beats is the frequency difference between what comes in the one ear and the other ear while using headphones. When used in the right way binaural beats can be extremely effective in influencing brainwaves and therefor your state of relaxation or focus or even agitation. It is in essence a soundhealing technique.
  3. Our first (ASMR) single produced in binaural and also Dolby Atmos, a track to create more Flow in your live will come out soon. Will post the link in this blogpost when it is released.
  4. You want to know more about what immersive sound or spatial audio is, read our other blogs.
The Power of Affirmations

The Power of Affirmations

We do a lot of self-talk. The constant chatter in our minds is constant. From “oh, I should not forget to buy this” or “my meeting did not go well”, “why am I am so forgetful?” to “I should have said that.” Underneath the obvious voice lie limiting beliefs about ourselves.

Most of us have this inner dialogue inside of us. All this self-talk are basically affirmations as they affirm what we experience, see or believe. When we start to talk differently to ourselves, in a more positive way — and as a result, affirming the positive — we then also start to act from this place and can experience greater happiness, clarity and well-being. This is the power of our thoughts. Lots of books have been written about the power of our thoughts, and there is plenty of science-backed research showing the power our mind holds over us.

What is a typical affirmation?

A typical affirmation is a sentence that starts with “I…”, followed by something you want to confirm and affirm in yourself to either induce a positive way of living or avoid negative situations from happening again. We can make ourselves stronger with affirmations. Affirmations become more powerful the more repeat them. The repetition engrains the affirmation in our thoughts, our mind and then finally, in our behavior.

There are many ways we can integrate affirmations in our lives — from repeating them throughout our day, making an affirmation our computer login password, or hanging a poster on our wall.

Here are some examples of some popular affirmations:
I am good enough
I am strong
I am loving and kind
I am worthy
I am successful
I can do this
I am courageous
I am safe
I choose to be happy and healthy
I decide how I feel and will choose for myself

Create your own affirmation, tailored to YOUR life

Affirmations can be anything we want them to be – and can be long, or short. Often affirmations work with specific themes in our lives. They can address how we ground, how we feel our joy for life, how we make decisions, the love and success we want in our lives, how we speak our truth and our connection to others, the earth or the sky.

What limiting beliefs do you have about yourself that you’d like to change? What goals do you have for yourself – in different areas of your life? What specific feelings do you want more of in your life? It can be helpful to take a few minutes to note these down, in a journal and create a daily practice of reading, writing or saying these out loud.

To further help you on your journey of discovering affirmations, at Flower of Sound we use and incorporate affirmations in some of our tracks. We also add specific healing frequencies and sound healing techniques to amplify the effect of the affirmations. Our first affirmation track will soon be released using both a calming, meditative voice as well as a whispering voice (ASMR).
