Have you noticed that the color spectrum (from red to violet ... red,
orange, yellow, green, blue, violet) cab be represented as a circle
(or perhaps a spiral?), while low frequency to high frequency sound
do not form a 'circle', or spiral.

Very off topic ...

And on a related (?) topic, does anyone have a more precise
measurement of the perfect fifth (in cents) than 701.955 ... ? Using
this more precise number, the pythagorean comma is 23.260 000 000
001. Using this more precise figure, the spiral away from the
returning perfect fifth will itself spiral away, a helix on top of a
helix.

Thanks

Best

Kevin
