There is an ancient legend that some ancient crabs were originally made of jade and has long been used as an aphrodisiac.
Now we will explore other meta physical aspects of music and sounds. Standing waves is an essential phenomenon in the creation of the musical tone. In my page The Creation of the Musical Scale there is a description of standing waves. Here we will just state, that standing waves automatically divide the length of a string or an air column into an integral number of half wave-lengths.
It is only then, a standing wave can be sustained. That pattern is the most energy effective form nature can provide. A similar pattern is the rhythm entrainment, where random oscillation after a while begin to oscillate in unison. Standing waves can not exist unless they divide their medium into an integral numbers of half waves with its nodes.
A standing waves having a fractional wavelength can not be sustained. The same standing waves pattern can be preformed in a plate or a 3 dimensional box too. This pattern will look just like a highly enlarged crystal, if we assume that the aggregated particles or grains in the box fluid are analogous to the atoms in a crystal.
The key word in standing waves is order. In short, by using sound we have introduced order where previously there was none. In the early 20th. Century spectrum analysis showed 7 levels or series for the orbiting electrons, but it was unclear how the electrons was able to maintain they fixed orbits.
The quantum physicist de Borglie came up with an explanation, when he in proposed, that the electrons not only existed as particles, but also behaved as waves of matter, which interfered with themselves as standing waves. By this order the numbers of electrons are maintained in their orbits. The orbit is only stable if it meets the condition for standing waves.
The circumference had to be an integer number of the wavelength. The consequence is that only special values of radius and energy is allowed for the electrons, if they stay stable and do not emit energy.
Niels Bohr's atom theory stated in contrary to the classical law of electrodynamics, that the electrons do not emits energy, photons, as long as they energy integers are in accordance with the properties of standing waves. Table of the Elements The periodic tables of Elements reflexes the wave pattern of atoms.
Usually the table is displayed with 7 series of quantized atoms, where the first level contains the lightest atoms, Hydrogen and Helium. The atomic weight depends mainly of the number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus and is increasing down the diagram.
I have changed the periodic, vertical level with octaves. If we look at the atomic weight, which is not indicated in this table of elements due to clarity, we will notice, that the law of octaves to a great extent is displayed by the double atomic weight for each descending octave.
In addition, each main octave contains inner octaves on the horizontal, group level, so we can view the Table of Elements as a square of octaves. This way of viewing the table of elements as a square of octaves does not have a scientific value.
The atomic weight numbers do not in many cases show a strict octave behavior. However, I find in the general display of the table of elements too many coincidences of octave patterns, that I dare bring this point of view.
Nature does not reveals itself as a finished, perfect framework. There are flaws everywhere, cracks for the light to enter and space for the continuous creation.

Early Society in East Asia. Chapter 5. Political Organization in Early China. The Zhou Dynasty. Fought Shang -> allied with them -> eclipsed them. Xia prob. Used writing for record-keeping. Shang – extensive use: oracle bones to tell fortunes. Pictographic, with ideographs. The earliest examples of ancient Chinese writing come from oracle bones at Anyang, a Shang Dynasty capital, and contemporary bronze inscriptions.
There may have been writing on bamboo or other perishable surfaces, but they have, inevitably, disappeared. The latest dispute over Chinese migration to America only goes to confirm that modern specialists still retain the same mentality as those of the nineteenth century.
