### Musical Mathematics as well as Randomness

Most people would know how to explain why they liked specific music. They might say it just sounds good. But when you consider the vibrations and harmonies in music that is popular, you find that there is a mathematical relationship between great music and harmony. Simply put, random noise doesn’t sound great. But a series of harmonic sounds that seem to mix well together will sound great. This sounds obvious, but when you put it into a mathematical equation, you notice that the timing and frequency of beats is critical, and closely related to the golden ratio.

I’m not going to explain too much about the golden ratio, except to say that it is everywhere. It is part of all matter and life. It is everywhere you look, and part of everything. Yet it is not taught in school. In most recent theories of the universe, such as string theory, the universe is said to consist of vibrating harmonic strings, like some sort of grand symphony.

In the case of predicting roulette, this grand symphony still stands. By now we all know everything is energy, and everything is part of this grand symphony. But to a layman, it all appears random. Nothing is ever random as I have said many times. It’s more a question of whether or not we can predict the variables that affect outcomes, and in the case of roulette, whether or not we can predict where the ball lands. And most certainly there is more than enough information regarding the variables to predict where the ball lands, at least with sufficient accuracy to overcome the house edge

### Alien Life Probability

Many people think that alien life is just a bunch of science fiction, and that it is highly improbable. On the other hand, considering the vast size of the universe, I believe it is more crazy to think we are the only intelligent species in the universe. It may be difficult to fathom how large… Continue Reading

### Flight Dynamics

The foundation of modern flight revolves around the four forces called thrust, lift, drag, and weight. Basically the thrust moves the plane forward, the forward motion creates airflow over the aerofoil, this creates lift, and the lift overcomes the weight. Any aircraft uses these principles, except if an aircraft is gliding, or even a bird,… Continue Reading
