The precession of the earth's axis

The third element of the Earth's motion, alongside its orbit around the sun and its rotation on its own axis, is the gyroscopic motion of the Earth's axis, also known as precession. In just under 26,000 years, the imaginary extension of the Earth's axis completes a full circle in the fixed starry sky. The duration of this cycle is called the "Platonic year". The 47th octave corresponds to a tone F of 172.06 Hz. The fundamental tone is one or two octaves higher for small singing bowls and one octave lower for large singing bowls. The 88th and 89th octave of the earth day corresponds to the colour red-violet.


The Platonic Year is not directly perceptible in a person's life like day and night or the seasons. It is a vibration that can be grasped above all spiritually, more precisely, through the interaction of many spirits. For generations, celestial experts have recognised that the point of equinox in spring, which astronomically marks the beginning of a new earthly year, passes through the zodiac as a result of precession. The vernal equinox has travelled backwards through the constellation of Pisces since the beginning of our era a good 2000 years ago and now heralds the "Age of Aquarius" sung about in the musical Hair.

The tone of the Platonic earth year is a tone of the spirit. In the culture of ancient China, which emphasises the Taoist spirit, the tone F was the basic tone of music. Like the colour red-violet, which combines both edges of the light spectrum into a 'colour wheel', the tone symbolises the non-separateness of dual opposites. It helps to cope with phases of upheaval in life, has a calming effect and at the same time promotes mental clarity, concentration and the ability to learn. The octave frequencies of the Platonic year resonate primarily in the crown chakra Sahasrara .


The description of the effect of the cosmic octave tones is based on the subjective experiences of many users. It is intended as a suggestion, because it is not what is said or written that counts, but what is experienced. Feel the vibration yourself and observe how you and others react to the respective vibration. A series of experiences can develop into a "red-violet thread" that describes the effect of the sound more and more clearly.
