The Harmonics Theory states that in a non-linear wave medium any standing wave will develop harmonics and that each of these harmonic waves will do the same. It leads to a particular pattern of energy by frequency which contains musical structures such as chords and scales.
When applied to the universe as a whole, the theory follows from General Relativity which states that electromagnetism and gravity are non-linear. Taking the universe as a non-linear wave phenomenon, Harmonics Theory makes correct predictions about the distance scales at which strong structures will form, including galaxies, stars, planets, moons and cells, atoms, nucleons and perhaps quarks.
The theory was first put forward in 1989 by Ray Tomes from New Zealand at the annual conference of the Foundation for the Study of Cycles and in a slightly modified form of the calculations in 1992.
The single axiom of the theory is:
the universe consists of a wave which develops harmonics and each of these waves does the same
From this axiom it follows that each harmonic will receive energy from a different number of other waves being the number of different ways that that harmonic number can be factorised. Using combinatorial mathematics and computers it is possible to calculate the energy distribution of the universe according to the harmonics theory up to harmonics of over 10^50.
The theory has made successful explanations and predictions in areas where no other theory has done so. This includes accurately linking known cycle periodicities between about one and one billion years in geology, mass extinctions, astronomy, economics, biology, weather, social pheonomena and wars. In 1994 a particle of mass 68 times an electron was predicted and such a particle was reported by KARMEN scientists in 1995. Also in 1994 an explanation of the 72 km/s galaxy redshift periodicity reported by William Tifft and Halton Arp was made and further periodicities calculated that have also been reported.
The universe is to be understood as a large number of superimposed standing wave oscillations of various frequencies and amplitudes all interacting and gradually exchanging energy. These waves vary in wavelength from larger than galaxy spacings down to subatomic particle spacings or wavelengths.
From the pattern of prime ratios between observed strong wavelengths and periods it is possible to calculate the most likely fundamental period of oscillation as 1.482×1023 years and to state that many repeated oscillations of this period must have ocurred. Therefore, although the theory is consistent with General Relativity it is not in agreement with Big Bang cosmology.
