Harmony

"Harmony is the simultaneous vibration of two or more bodies whose harmonics do not produce discords, and whose fundamental pitches are harmonies of the lowest pitch, or are a unison with the resultant notes or overtones, or undertones, of any two or more of them." Keely

"Harmony is health. Discord is disease." Keely

"Discord is disease; harmony is health and every person starts from one or the other of these two bases. The word truth is applied to both, but if there was not any discord, there would be no need of harmony, for before there was discord all was quiet. So that it is a truth that there is such a state as discord in the mind, but the discord is in us and not in the thing spoken of. The discord is not in the tune but in those that hear it, for if there were no one to hear it, there would be no discord." Quimby


"For the joy of living, in an material experience, is dependent upon the peace of mind - not indolence but activative peace, activative harmony. Though the entity has seen and has known and touched much dis-harmony; the desire for harmony reaches almost to that which is sought by the musician, in bringing about the arousal of the emotions ... which answer to the chords within the body; whether in movements of the dance, or arousal of emotions for the celestial or terrestrial activity in the emotions." Cayce (880-1)

"Harmony is produced by its Principle, is controlled by it and abides with it. Divine Principle is the Life of man. Man's happiness is not, therefore, at the disposal of physical sense. Truth is not contaminated by error. Harmony in man is as beautiful as in music, and discord is unnatural, unreal.

"The science of music governs tones. If mortals caught harmony through material sense, they would lose harmony, if time or accident robbed them of material sense. To be master of chords and discords, the science of music must be understood. Left to the decisions of material sense, music is liable to be misapprehended and lost in confusion. So man, not understanding the Science of being, - thrusting aside his divine Principle as incomprehensible, - is abandoned to conjectures, left in the hands of ignorance, placed at the disposal of illusions, subjected to material sense which is discord. A discontented, discordant mortal is no more a man than discord is music." [Mary Baker Eddy; Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. 1971]

"Proportion belongs to geometry and harmony, measurement to the object and to arithmetic; and one necessitates the other. Proportion is the comparison of sizes; harmony is the relationship to measures; geometry is the function of numbers." [R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, The Temple in Man, page 61]

"In fact, each of these individual members of the vegetable kingdom belongs to a genus, and this genus to a family; and these families belong to an original "lineage." At the head of this lineage is a Neter, a "Principle" synthesizing all the characteristics of this lineage; its number, its rhythm, its classification in the general harmony." [R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, The Temple in Man, page 63]

"The notion of chord/scale unity as the logical approach to the vertical manifestation of harmony was simply overlooked by classical Western theorists. The understanding that the term HARMONY means UNITY, and already complete VERTICAL ONENESS of elements existing in the momentary NOW above time was either missed or dismissed by the founding fathers of Western classical music theory." [Lydian Chromatic Concept, p. 222]
