Standing Wave Symmetry in Music

We naturally anticipate the tense Green-Red dominant tritone being mysteriously pulled toward the resolved Cyan-Magenta tonic major third. The source of this magical anticipation is two damping wells located at the golden ratio and inverse golden ratio within the octave. These phi-damping locations are equivalent to the intersections of a pentagram and fifth harmonic. They are also where energy is shared between harmonic wave partials inside the standing wave of the Cyan tonic. Our perception of music is thus influenced heavily by a natural recognition of the octave golden ratios relative to a given reference tone, tonic, or key.
