About My Books


All of my books are based on a theory of music and perception called Harmonic Interference Theory. This theory explains how harmonics combine to form the same geometrical patterns in both sound and the human auditory system, triggering emotions according to phase alignment.

Ancient civilizations understood music perception in much the same way, even developing an advanced harmonic science and spiritual cosmology from it. Associated with paganism by Western religious doctrine, only remnants of this ancient science remain today in mythologies, religious symbolisms, and esoteric currents. Known as Musica Universalis, Musica Humana, and the Audible Life Stream, the physics and physiology of music perception was once the theory of everything.

Each of my books explore a different aspect of harmonic science in an effort to create a more integrated and inclusive worldview.
