Never Mind The 527s

Want World Peace? Tune Your Damn Guitar! By David B. Moye on 16 August, 2007 10:17:00

SANDPOINT, Idaho (TNA) * The solution to world peace may be as simple as tuning your guitar or piano.

At least that's the theory of Dr. Leonard Horowitz, a dentist in Sandpoint, Idaho, who is convinced that out-of-tune musical instruments are destroying DNA.

Horowitz says that ever since the Middle Ages, musical instruments have been tuned to a slightly different cycle than they should be. For instance, a 'Middle C' is tuned to 523 cycles per second when it should be set at 528 cycles per second.

"This Middle C is the middle of the universe," Horowitz said. "It's the center of the color green in the rainbow and the center of the heart chakra."

You can read the whole thing here, and, on account of where I found it, you might want to read the comments in response.

While I admit it's utterly silly, I can't help thinking - wouldn't it be nice if it were that simple?

"Promote world peace - end discord."

Interfering with the resonance of the Big Note, them and their well-tempered scale, consarnit!

That's not the sort of crazy I associate with Sandpoint, myself.
