The experiments of Masaru Emoto with emotional imprinting
June 20, 2019
Masaru Emoto has carried out very interesting experiments with water at critical point
for freezing. He claims that words expressing emotions have eﬀect on the crystals formed in
the process. Emoto reports that words with positive emotional contents produce beautiful
crystals and those with negative emotional content generate ugly ones. Also music and even
pictures are reported to have similar eﬀect. Emoto has also experimented with rice in water
and claims that the words with positive emotions content induce a metabolic process known
as fermentation whereas those with negative emotional content tend to induce rottening. The
experiments can be certainly criticized and people calling themselves skeptics have reacted
violently to these claims. TGD inspired theory of consciousness and quantum biology suggests
the presence of just this kind of eﬀects and therefore one can make the working hypothesis
that the eﬀects are real, and see what the TGD based explanation for them could be.
In the sequel I will consider the working hypothesis that the eﬀects are real, and develop an
explanation based on TGD inspired quantum biology. The basic ingredients of the model are
following: magnetic body (MB) carrying dark matter as hef f /h =nphases of ordinary matter;
communications between MB and biological body (BB) using dark photons able to transform
to ordinary photons identiﬁable as bio-photons; the special properties of water explained in
TGD framework by assuming dark component of water implying that criticality for freezing
involves also quantum criticality, and the realization of genetic code and counterparts of the
basic bio-molecules as dark proton sequences and as 3-chords consisting of light or sound
providing a universal language allowing universal manner to express emotions in terms of
bio-harmony realized as music of light or sound. The entanglement of water sample and the
subject person (with MBs included) realized as ﬂux tube connections would give rise to a larger
conscious entity expressing emotions via language realized in terms of basic biomolecules in
a universal manner by utilizing genetic code realized in terms of both dark proton sequences
and music of light of light and sound.

1. Introduction 2
Sini Kunnas sent a link to a video telling about experiments of Masaru Emoto (see http://
tinyurl.com/pqy57jj) with water, which is at criticality with respect to freezing and then frozen.
Emoto reports is that words expressing emotions are transmitted to water: positive emotions tend
to generate beautiful crystal structures and negative emotions ugly ones. Also music and even
pictures are claimed to have similar eﬀects. Emoto has also carried out similar experiments with
rice in water. Rice subjected to words began to ferment and water subject to words expressing
negative emotions began to rotten.
Remark: Fermentation is a metabolic process consuming sugar in absence of oxygen. Metabolism
is a basic signature of life so that at least in this aspect the water+rice system would become alive.
The words expressing positive emotions or even music would serve as a signal “waking up” the
One could deﬁne genuine skeptic as a person who challenges existing beliefs and pseudo-skeptic
(PS in the sequel) as a person challenging - usually denying - everything challenging the mainstream
beliefs. The reception of the claims of Emoto is a representative example about the extremely
hostile reactions of PSs as aggressive watchdogs of materialistic science towards anything that
challenges their belief system. The psychology behind this attitude is same as behind religious and
I must emphasize that I see myself as a thinker and regard myself as a skeptic in the old-
fashioned sense of the word challenging the prevailing world view rather than phenomena challeng-
ing the prevailing world view. I do not want to be classiﬁed as believer or non-believer. The fact is
that if TGD inspired theory of consciousness and quantum biology describes reality, a revolution
in the world view is unavoidable. Therefore it is natural to consider the working hypothesis that
the eﬀects are real and see what the TGD based explanation for them could be.
The Wikipedia article about Masaru Emoto (see http://tinyurl.com/pqy57jj) provides a
good summary of the experiments of Emoto and provides a lot of links so that I will give here
only a brief sketch. According to the article Emoto believed that water was a “blueprint for our
reality” and that emotional “energies” and “vibrations” could change the physical structure of
water. The water crystallization experiments of Emoto consisted of exposing water in glasses to
diﬀerent words, pictures or music, and then freezing and examining the aesthetic properties of the
resulting crystals with microscopic photography. Emoto made the claim that water exposed to
positive speech and thoughts would result in visually “pleasing” crystals being formed when that
water was frozen, and that negative intention would yield “ugly” crystal formations.
In 2008, Emoto and collaborators published and article titled “Double-Blind Test of the Eﬀects
of Distant Intention on Water Crystal Formation” about his about experiments with water in the
Journal of Scientiﬁc Exploration, a peer reviewed scientiﬁc journal of the Society for Scientiﬁc
Explorations (see http://tinyurl.com/ycsnu2oc). The work was performed by Masaru Emoto
and Takashige Kizu of Emotos own IHM General Institute, along with Dean Radin and Nancy
Lund of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, which is on Stephen Barrett’s Quackwatch (see http:
//tinyurl.com/y99kol2e) blacklist of questionable organizations. PSs are the modern jesuits and
for jesuits the end justiﬁes the means.
Emoto has also carried experiments with rice samples in water. There are 3 samples. First
sample “hears” words with positive emotional meaning, second sample words with negative emo-
tional meaning, and the third sample serving as a control sample. Emoto reports (see https:
//youtu.be/Wc-ZmvxfBxE) that the rice subjected to words with positive emotional content be-
gan to ferment whereas water subject to words expressing negative emotions began to rotten. The
control sample also began to rotten but not so fast.
In the sequel I will consider the working hypothesis that the eﬀects are real, and develop
an explanation based on TGD inspired quantum biology [K5, K4, K3]. The basic ingredients
of the model are following: magnetic body (MB) carrying dark matter as hef f /h =nphases of
ordinary matter; communications between MB and biological body (BB) using dark photons able to
transform to ordinary photons identiﬁable as bio-photons; the special properties of water explained
in TGD framework by assuming dark component of water implying that criticality for freezing
involves also quantum criticality, and the realization of genetic code and counterparts of the basic
bio-molecules as dark proton sequences and as 3-chords consisting of light or sound providing a
universal language allowing universal manner to express emotions in terms of bio-harmony realized

as music of light or sound. The entanglement of water sample and the subject person (with MBs
included) realized as ﬂux tube connections would give rise to a larger conscious entity expressing
emotions via language realized in terms of basic biomolecules in a universal manner by utilizing
genetic code realized in terms of both dark proton sequences and music of light of light and sound.
2 The reception of the ﬁndings of Emoto
The ﬁndings of Emoto challenge the materialistic world view and have received both genuine
criticism and “criticism”.
2.1 Criticism and “criticism”
Commentators have criticized Emoto for insuﬃcient experimental controls and for not sharing
enough details of his approach with the scientiﬁc community. Prof. emeritus William A. Tiller, a
researcher featured in the documentary “What The Bleep Do We Know?”, states that experiments
of Emoto fall short of proof, since they do not control for other factors in the supercooling of water.
It is easy to agree that scientiﬁc proof is not in question. William Tiller claims that supercooling
of water involved with the experiments might have delicate eﬀects diﬃcult to control.
Remark: Supercooling of water makes it critical system, even quantum critical and in TGD
Universe, and this makes it ideal target of remote mental interactions.
A lot of experiments are needed: in particular, the possible dependence on the person who
utters the words with emotional content, deserves to be studied. Just taking randomly chosen
group of people and control system might not be enough to achieve a signiﬁcant eﬀect. Situation
could be similar to that in the recent double slit experiments of Radin [L6] (see http://tinyurl.
com/y72b87p7), in which subject person tries to intentionally aﬀect the interference pattern for
light travelling through slits. The eﬀect is clear in the case of experienced meditators. That very
few of us are not concert pianists, cannot be used to argue that there are no concert pianists.
There is also the authoritative “criticism”, which carefully avoids stating anything about con-
tents of the work and directs the eﬀorts on rhetoric tricks. These “criticisms” do not deserve
serious attention except as perfect examples of the empty rhetorics so typical for PSs. The follow-
ing examples are citations from the Wikipedia article (see http://tinyurl.com/pqy57jj).
Emoto has been criticized for designing his experiments in ways that leave them prone
to manipulation or human error inﬂuencing the ﬁndings. Biochemist and Director
of Microscopy at University College Cork William Reville wrote, ”It is very unlikely
that there is any reality behind claims of Emoto.”. Reville noted the lack of scientiﬁc
publication and pointed out that anyone who could demonstrate such a phenomenon
would become immediately famous and probably wealthy.
Remark:The absence of scientiﬁc publication (in respected journal of course) often reﬂects
the fact that PSs have reached their goal to prevent publishing anything challenging their beliefs.
I have experienced this myself during four decades very concretely. At nineties it became even
impossible to get anything into arXiv.
Writing about Emoto’s ideas in the Skeptical Inquirer, physician Harriet A. Hall con-
cluded that it was ”hard to see how anyone could mistake it for science”. Commenting
on Emoto’s ideas about clearing water polluted by algae, biologist Tyler Volk stated,
”What he is saying has nothing to do with science as I know it.” Stephen Kiesling
wrote in Spirituality & Health Magazine, ”Perhaps Emoto is an evangelist who val-
ues the message of his images more than the particulars of science; nevertheless, this
spiritual teacher might focus his future practice less on gratitude and more on honesty.”.
Needless to restate that these comment say nothing about contents.
2.2 Emoto is not the only victim of pseudo-skepticism
The criticism of the experiments of Emoto mostly reﬂects the prevailing materialistic dogmas,
which do not allow these eﬀects so that depending on the authority Emoto is concluded to be mad,
2.3 Analyzing the mindset of PS 4
charlatan, or evangelist. The rage of PSs is really frightening and demonstrates how powerful
eﬀects ideology can have.
Emoto shares the fate of experimenters studying water memory and homeopathy. “Homeopa-
thy” is indeed a word making skeptic growl and drool: one can hardly imagine a more impressive
demonstration of words on water than this! An almost- Nobelist Benveniste was labelled as swindler
as he announced about experiments providing support for water memory and homeopathy. Magi-
cian Randi - Randi again(!) - participated the investigation of the mind-police of science, in which
Benveniste and laboratory staﬀ was treated like criminals unless otherwise proven.
There is a lot of support about the representation of water memory as extremely low frequencies
(ELF) of radiation associated with water [I2, I3]. These ELF frequencies can be stored electroni-
cally and they produce the same eﬀects as the bio-active chemical, whose presence induced these
frequencies in water. These facts PSs simply neglect because they do not ﬁt the belief system of
PSs dating back to 18th century. At the age of IT the idea about the existence of representations of
bio-active molecules as frequency patterns able to induce the biological eﬀects of molecules without
the presence of molecules should not raise aggressions.
Few years ago HIV Nobelist Montagnier did experiments giving support for water memory and
the procedure involved a part very similar to that used in preparing homeopathic remedies [I6] [L1].
In TGD framework these frequencies would correspond to cyclotron frequencies assignable to MBs
of molecules, and immune system is proposed to have emerged from the ability of water to mimic
the magnetic bodies of invader molecules and learning to recognize them [K2]. This interpretation
could mean a breakthrough in biology but unfortunately the time is not mature for this yet.
Remote mental interactions/paranormal phenomena [K5] belong also to the pariah phenomena
having no place in materialistic world and people having the courage to challenge this view are
labelled as science criminals by PSs.
2.3 Analyzing the mindset of PS
People calling themselves skeptics are rarely skeptics in the original meaning of the word but
believers, even fanatic believers. The basic un-challengeable belief is materialism stating that
consciousness is only an epiphenomenon - illusion as David Dennett puts it without explaining what
he means with the claim that consciousness does not exist but is only one particular phenomenon of
consciousness - namely illusion. There is no free will and there are no genuine intentional actions.
Moral and ethics are illusions. And certainly, human can have no intentional eﬀects on water
since even genuine intentional eﬀects on our own body are impossible. This leads to the notion of
objectivity as PS understands it.
This notion of objectivity implies that the outcome of given experiment cannot depend on who
carries it or on who the subject persons are. If this turns out to not be the case, the experiment
is not well-done and experimenter can be ridiculed. Water is dead matter for PS, even the PS
himself should be dead matter if the materialistic logic is taken to its bitter end. I dare guess
that most PSs privately believe - without even realizing that this is the case - that their intentions
genuinely aﬀect the sack of water with some chemicals that is called their body. It is extremely
diﬃcult pretend that one is not conscious when one is conscious.
The conclusion of the PS is that the outcome of Emoto’s experiments with water and rice
cannot depend at all on the person who utters the words expressing positive or negative emotions.
PS calls this assumption objectivity but is actually only an assumption that there is no such thing
as intentional free will and that we live in a deterministic world of billiard balls. This view is
known to be wrong: quantum entanglement has been veriﬁed for cell sized system in macroscopic
scales and quantum world is non-deterministic - mentioning this fact is carefully avoided in text
books. PSs also unashamedly put under the rug hundreds of anomalies related to the physics of
If human intention and emotion can have eﬀects on water, the ﬁrst question is whether the
intention and emotion of some humans these eﬀects are stronger. Belief moves mountains and
since Emoto believes that intention can have eﬀects, it would be only natural that the eﬀects
are stronger. If this is true, one cannot demand the repeatability of the experiment anymore. In
paranormal research the experimenter eﬀect is well-known - some experimenters are more successful
than others without being charlatans - as also in medicine. This is the case always when living
systems are involved. There is another amusing example demonstrating the shallowness of the
3. TGD based model for Emoto’s ﬁndings 5
thinking of PSs: PSs love to say that the eﬀects of healing practices produce nothing but placebo
eﬀects without realizing that placebo eﬀect as such is a fascinating mind-over-matter eﬀect begging
Of course, if Emoto believed that the emotions have eﬀects on water, his desire to prove this
belief might have produced these eﬀects - not by cheating but by intentional rather than emotional
imprinting based on remote mental interactions aﬀecting water. The words as such need not have
caused the eﬀect. This would represent an example of remote mental interactions. Note however
that also music and even pictures were reported to have eﬀects on water and it is not easy to
explain this as experimenter eﬀect.
An amusing “experiment” on rice was carried out by a hard-nosed skeptic Carry Poppy (see
http://tinyurl.com/y8g9jgal). The extremely nasty tone of the article reveals the hatred of
Poppy towards Emoto and people challenging the materialist world view. The outcome of the
“experiment” carried by Poppy was of course negative. Perhaps not surprising, the outcome would
express faithfully the real intention and desire of the experimenter!
3 TGD based model for Emoto’s ﬁndings
In TGD based view the notion of magnetic body (MB) is central [K4, K3]. MB carries dark phases
of matter identiﬁed as phases of ordinary matter with heff /h =nmaking possible macroscopic
quantum coherence explaining the coherence of living matter not understandable in the biochem-
istry based approach. The interactions between MB and biological body (BB) are essential remote
mental interactions based on signalling using dark photons. Therefore the basic mechanisms of
quantum biology would be also mechanisms of remote mental interactions - only the target would
be non-standard. We are mostly water and it would not be surprising if these mechanisms would
allow intentional and emotional imprinting of also water outside our body and in quantum critical
3.1 Basic incredients of the model
In TGD universe water is very special substance in that it contains both ordinary water and its dark
variant. What makes it dark is that dark magnetic ﬂux tubes representing long hydrogen bonds
are present for some portion of water [L13] (see http://tinyurl.com/y8fvwbp9): the length of
bonds scales as nor perhaps even n2. The presence of these ﬂux tubes makes any liquid phase a
network like structure and one ends up with a model explaining an anomaly of thermodynamics
of liquids at criticality known already in Maxwell’s time. This leads to a model explaining the
numerous anomalies of water in terms of the dark matter.
For instance, the dark part of water with non-standard Planck constant transforms to ordinary
water in freezing. As a consequence, a large amount of energy is liberated. This explains why
water has anomalously large latent heat of fusion. One can also understand why the volume of
water increases in freezing and decreases in heating in the interval 0-4 ◦C. The anomalies of water
are largest at physiological temperature Tphys ∼37 ◦C suggesting that the dark portion of water
is largest at Tphys. Dark fraction of water would be essential for life.
Dark protons sequences at ﬂux tubes representing genetic code and the analogs of basic
biomolecules are realized in water. Pollack eﬀect [L3] (see http://tinyurl.com/oyhstc2) re-
quiring feed of energy - as IR radiation for instance - generates so called exclusion zones (EZs),
which are negatively charged regions. A fraction of protons from water must go somewhere and
the TGD inspired proposal [L3] (see http://tinyurl.com/gwasd8o) is that the protons transform
to dark protons at magnetic ﬂux tubes. The dark variants of particles quite generally have higher
energies than ordinary ones and energy feed provides the needed metabolic energy go make the
protons dark. In the case of homeopathy and water memory mechanical agitation creates pro-
vides the metabolic energy and would generate EZs accompanied by dark proton sequencies at
ﬂux tubes [K2].
Remote expression of emotions as crystal patterns - emotional imprinting - is required and
communication requires a code so that receiver and sender have same interpretation for the signal.
Genetic code would provide the fundamental code making possible universal meanings. TGD
3.2 TGD based mechanism for emotional imprinting 6
leads to two basic proposals predicting the numbers of DNA codons coding for given AA rather
1. The ﬁrst proposal [L4] relies on TGD view about dark matter as heff /h =nphases of
ordinary matter [K1, K7, K8] motivated by adelic physics extending physics to include also the
correlates of cognition [L7, L8] (see http://tinyurl.com/ycbhse5c and http://tinyurl.
com/ybzkfevz). The empirical motivation comes from several sources, in particular from the
ﬁndings of Pollack.
Dark genetic code would be realized in terms of dark proton sequences at ﬂux tubes- dark
nuclei. The model predicts dark counterparts of DNA, mRNA, tRNA, and AA as dark proton
sequences which codons identiﬁable as dark proton triplets. Bio-chemistry would emerge as
a shadow of the much simpler dynamics of dark matter at ﬂux tubes and genetic code would
be induced by dark code code.
2. Second model of genetic code emerged accidentally from a geometric model of music har-
mony [L2, L12] (see http://tinyurl.com/yad4tqwl and http://tinyurl.com/yd8d8x6j)
involving icosahedral (12 vertices-12-note scale and 20 faces-number of AAs) and tetrahedral
geometries leading to the proposal that DNA codons and possibly also AAs correspond to
3-chords deﬁning the harmony and obtained as unions of 20+20+20 3-chords associated with
icosahedral 20-chord harmonies with symmetries Z6, Z4, Z2plus tetrahedral 4-chord harmony.
There is large number of these harmonies bringing in additional degrees of freedom.
Remark: This model has obviously analogies with the notion of wave genome introduced
by Peter Gariaev [I4, I5, I9].
Since music both expresses and creates emotions, the proposal is that these harmonies assign-
ing additional hidden degrees of freedom to the MBs of dark variants of DNA, RNA, etc...
serve as correlates of emotions also at the molecular level. This emotional context could
also give rise to context dependence of the code if several harmonies are realizable chemi-
cally. Taking seriously TGD inspired theory of consciousness [L9] (see http://tinyurl.com/
ycxm2tpd) and model of emotions [L11] (see http://tinyurl.com/ydhxen4g), one might say
that the details of the code might depend slightly on the “emotional” state of DNA, RNA,
and possibly other molecules.
3.2 TGD based mechanism for emotional imprinting
One must not forget that as a passionate researcher Emoto probably had very intimate relationship
with water! As we all have with one particular water volume, which we call our body! I can intend
raising my hand and it raises. Also my emotions are expressed in this personal bag of water
containing also some fraction of biomolecules. I doubt that even the most fanatic PS would not
try to tell me that I am performing a sleight of hand as I do this. But they should do this in order
to take their materialistic logic to its bitter end.
One can perhaps say that Emoto extended his body by fusing with the MB of water, which
in turn controls the ordinary part of water just like it controls our own body. The reports of
experiences about extension of body are not unheard in the spiritual practices. Not even in
everyday life. If you touch ground with a stick, you experience the touch as if the stick were part
of your body. Could the stick really become part of your body in some sense?
What could be the precise mechanism for emotional imprinting (as analog of intentional im-
printing that Tiller talks about [J2])?
1. The basic vision is that living matter is a quantum critical system making it extremely
sensitive to perturbations (actually TGD Universe is quantum critical in well-deﬁned sense
[L14] (see http://tinyurl.com/yakzlllk). This makes biological system an ideal sensor
and motor instrument. In particular, intentions can aﬀect body water at quantum criticality
optimally. At quantum criticality phases with several values of Planck constant heff /h =n
are present and correspond to dark matter which is the key player in TGD inspired model
of living systems. As already noticed, the dark portion of water would be maximal at
3.2 TGD based mechanism for emotional imprinting 7
2. In the system studied by Emoto the subject person and water must form an entangled
quantum critical system. Water - or rather, the MB of water - must have part of it in
hef f /h =ndark phase becoming in certain sense part of subject person. Magnetic ﬂux
tubes connecting subject person to a sample of water (or of rice and water) and carrying
dark matter would serve as correlates of attention.
What might be called loving attention would provide metabolic energy to the target and
might be essential element in generating the dark phase giving rise to the beautiful crystal
patterns. hef f /h =ncan be seen as kind of universal IQ: the more the system contains
subsystems with large n, the higher its ability to generate conscious information, negentropy,
Therefore choosing randomly a subject person who just says a word with positive or negative
meaning but without emotion might not be enough to reproduce Emotos ﬁndings. It is
also quite possible that the outcome of the experiment is a realization of subject person’s
intention/desire to have the desired eﬀect. This would not however reduce the profound
implications of the ﬁndings of Emoto if they are true.
3. Thanks to the presence of dark portion of water, super-cooled water is quantum critical
system in TGD Universe. In supercooling the temperature can become considerably lower
than in the usual freezing and means that also the dark portion of water stays dark. This
dark portion would react to the intentions of subject person. The crystal structures would
serve as kind of photograph is of the representations of mental images of the system subject
person + dark portion of water.
Remark: Water normally freezes at 273.15 K (0 ◦C), but it can be supercooled at standard
pressure down to its crystal homogeneous nucleation at almost 224.8 K.
What about the eﬀects of music and even visual pictures on water? Also these eﬀects are
in principle possible and would rely on universal representation of emotions in living matter at
molecular and maybe even at higher levels. Since music represents and creates emotions, the
natural assumption is that the collection of allowed 3-chords express emotions both at the molecular
level and at the level of MB.
1. The resonant interaction by 3-chords made of photons is possible between any pair formed by
taking given member to be either DNA, RNA, tRNA or its dark variant. Dark counterparts of
AAs would couple resonantly to the frequencies deﬁned as sums of the frequencies of 3-chords.
These dark variants of bio-molecules are present also in water if TGD based explanation of
Pollack eﬀect is correct. One actually ends up to a model for prebiotic evolution involving
dark nuclei made from dark proton sequences in an essential manner [L10, L12](see http:
//tinyurl.com/yalny39x and http://tinyurl.com/yd5t82gq).
2. The frequencies of visible light are rather high for the ordinary value of Planck constant.
The original motivation for the hierarchy of Planck constants was the ﬁnding that ELF em
ﬁelds have quantal eﬀects on living matter [J1]. This led to a proposal in which bio-photons
at visible and UV frequencies are dark photons at ELF frequencies transformed to ordinary
photons [K6]. Also the reverse transformation taking ordinary photons to dark photons is
possible so that dark matter - dark variants of AAs responding resonantly to single frequency
- at the ﬂux tubes can “see”.
3. The eﬀect of words expressing positive emotions would initiate metabolism based on fermen-
tation. The spoken words must serve as encouraging of dis-encouraging control signal just
as music of light. The meaning of the words should be same for the subject person and the
system rice + water. This can be the case if the systems entangle to single system via ﬂux
This relates interestingly to the theory of Russian biologist Peter Gariaev based on the
assumption that genes deﬁne a language in rather concrete sense [I10, I8, I7]. I have developed
these ideas from TGD point of view in [L12] (see http://tinyurl.com/yd5t82gq): dark
variants of genes identiﬁed as dark proton sequences - essentially dark variants of nuclei -
deﬁne a universal language.
4. In the model the 3-chords in question are made of light. In the case of music as we understand
it they would be made of sound. In living matter sounds can be transformed to em oscillations
by piezo-electric eﬀect. The resulting em oscillations would be accompanied by both ordinary
and dark photons, and both the 3-chords and melody of the music would couple to dark dark
proton triplets at ﬂux tubes serving as counterparts of DNA, RNA, tRNA, and AAs. If the
same mechanism is involved with Emoto’s experiments, the sounds should transform to light
or they should induce at ﬂux tubes vibrations - dark phonons - at the same frequencies that
realize the representation of biomolecules and their dark variants as 3-chords.
Remark: In TGD Universe physical state as a collection of particles is replaced with a
network of ﬂux tubes having particles at its nodes [L5] (see http://tinyurl.com/y9kwnqfa).
Therefore sound as vibrations of the length of ﬂux tube accompanied by fermionic string
connecting pair of nodes becomes fundamental excitation rather than something emerging
only at condensed matter physics.
Ugly crystals are assigned with negative emotions and emotions are assigned with harmonies.
Harmonies - also those, which are sad (consider only passions of Bach) - are however usually
thought of as something beautiful. Can negative emotions really correspond to any bio-harmonies
characterized by symmetries. In a discussion with Sini Kunnas I realized that also the notion of
disharmony could make sense. There are indeed 6 Hamiltonian cycles without any symmetries
[A2, A3, A1]. I neglected them in the model of harmony because they would represent which
one might call disharmony. Could one of the contributing 3 Hamiltonian cycles in bio-harmony
correspond to this kind of dis-harmony and bring in 20 3-chords without any symmetries? If so the
relationship between geometry and aesthetics would become very concrete. The alternative view
would be that there are several harmonies realized simultaneously and thi creates disharmony.
