Likewise a fundamental music tone refracts or differentiates into the notes of its scale.
Colour. A term variously employed in mideval treatises on music to represent: a repetition of a sound in part music; purity of tone; a movement of the voice from the part; an alteration of rhythm by different voices; a discord purposely introduced for the sake of variety. [Stainer, John; Barrett, W.A.; A Dictionary of Musical Terms; Novello, Ewer and Co., London, pre-1900]
"That the different colors of the spectrum have an influence on vegetation has long been known. Plants grown under green glass soon die; under red glass they live a long time, but become pale and slender. Mr. Yung, of the University of Geneva, has placed the eggs of frogs and fishes in similar conditions, and found that violet light quickens their development; and blue, yellow, and light also, but in a lesser degree. Tadpoles, on the contrary, die sooner in colored light than in white light. As regards frogs, Mr. Yung has ascertained that their development is not stopped by darkness, as some observers have supposed, but that the process is much slower than in the light."[Eclectic Magazine, 1880, pp 510]
"Colors, to be sure, will often affect the body." Cayce (299-1)
"Colors affect the body, even as pollen does many another." Cayce (5511-1)
"Colors will also find an influence ... especially those not too severe, but the violet, ultra-violet, shades of green, of mode (mauve?) and pink. Though the others may make for a rigor oft in the entity, the delicate shades - or those which may be termed the spiritual - will influence the entity. When illness were to come about, soft music and the lighter shades or tones will quiet, where medicine would fail ... (may have stage or politics for vocation). In these fields the entity will gain the most; but the developing will come for the soul, for the spiritual portion, through music ... awakenings through color and song, and especially dirge..." Cayce (773-1)
"By color certain activities are also symbolized, - for instance, black indicates the whole combination of all. For, to material interpretation, white is the absence of color, black is the combination of them all. The dark blue indicates awakening; purple, healing; white, purity; gold, attaining. All of these and their varied shades indicate the activity; this applying to the stars as well as the sun or moon. The sun indicates strength and life, while the moon indicates change - and in one direction indicating the singleness of that activity through an individual experience, - the variations being indicated by the variations in color. Star, - the white, purity; the five-pointed, the whole senses of man indicated as attained to activity - the colors showing the variation; the forms of six, seven or eight pointed indicating the attainments, - as do the seven stars in a figure indicate the attaining to the seven particular centers in the body." Cayce (5746-1)
"We will find that colors influence the entity a great deal more, even, than musical forces in their tone, or the color in music. Drab colors and certain greens have an effect upon the entity that is almost such as to bring illness in the physical body; while purples or violets or shades of tan bring an exultant influence - tending to bring building influences to the entity." Cayce (482-124?)
"In those things that pertain to correlation of the spiritual or soul forces of the entity with its activities in colors, and inharmonious relationships: the tonal numbers are in F and C, while the colors should be purple - which denote the royalty of the associations and make for an influence in the vibrations about the entity. And this, with violet, should be about the body when there is any disorder in the vibrations in the body; for the effect these have upon the relationships between the physical, mental and soul-developing forces ...would give strength to the activities in relationship with the body." Cayce (324-1)
"Each body, each activity, each soul-entity vibrates better to this, that or other color... Colors are naturally the spiritualization of tone or sound..." Cayce (288-38)

"The master-tone of each octave is the inheritance of the original motion of the thinking process of Mind. These master-tones are the "inert gases" which are classified in the zero group of the Mendeleef table.
The state of motion of these inert gases is that of motion-in-inertia."
"Motion-in-inertia is that state of pressure equilibrium which lies between any two masses.
"The inertial line, or plane is that dividing line, or plane, toward which all masses discharge their potential.
"It is the line, or plane, of lowest potential of two opposing areas of potential, where opposing pressures neutralize. This is the plane of minimum pressure of two opposing areas.
"The master-tones which represent a state of motion-in-inertia and are the inert gases, bear the same relationship to the elements that white bears to the colors. They are a registration of them all. White is not included in the spectrum, it has no place there. The inert gases should not be included in the elements. They have no place there. Of this more shall be written later in its proper place." [Russell, The Universal One]
