A lot of us around the world celebrated the Gregorian calendar New Years just a mere THREE weeks ago, but Chinese New Year is today, Sunday, January 22, 2023. Happy New Year!
My previous blog (which was written as a tribute to Pythagoras and our dog, Finn) was posted on 11/22/2022 … which, in Numerology, is a THREE Day: 1+1+2+2+2+0+2+2 = 12. And 12 reduced is 1+2 = 3.
I'm strategically publishing this blog today … which is also a THREE day: 01/22/2023: 0+1+2+2+2+0+2+3 = 12, 1+2 = 3. THREE truly is Divine.
As an altered Yin Yang symbol is used for our Logo for A 432 Life, we are certainly aware of the Chinese New Year, and its meaning and symbolism. Most A 432 Life concepts are based on Buddhist, Greek, Egyptian and Jewish Kabbalah teachings.
(I have a future blog coming soon that will connect even more dots with our spArxx Alpha 3™ music tuning palette, and will pay more homage to Pythagoras and his Tetractys, as well as the Sephirot, the nodes of the Kabballistic Jewish Tree of Life)
This particular blog is reserved for tribute to my hubby, Park Anderson, whom I often refer to as the Energizer Bunny! For anyone who personally knows Park, they know that this man puts into motion the very definition of energy.
Though Park's Chinese zodiac sign is the Ox (sign number 2) this Chinese New Year is the year of the Rabbit (sign number 4) It is known that the Rabbit helps the Ox, so yes, today we fully celebrate the New Year, 2023.
The Tiger last year (sign number 3) presented many challenges (aka opportunities) for us in 2022. Guess what? THREE is still truly Divine. I fully owe many blessings to the wisdom lessons of the past year that are now in our rear view mirror.
As in the Western zodiac, each symbol tends to have some particular traits for anyone born under that sign. The same holds true with the Chinese zodiac. This karmaweather horoscope sums up the Oxen traits as I know them to be true of Park:
"Quiet strength irradiates from the Ox. A person born under this sign is self-confident and knows his life goals. Powerful and balanced, the Ox always manages to find the energy needed to get back on his feet, even when going through difficult times."
Well before Park and I were married, he told me, "I will ALWAYS be 'doubling down' on something". (And even though we got married in Las Vegas, he was not referring to gambling!) He put that out there, right up front, no hiding it. And he meant it. He referred to 'doubling down' as always doing some sort of side project, learning activity, or creative endeavor.
For example, back in 2008, while running his own business software company, he'd created some of his own math-based algorithms to help website graphics adapt to the rapidly-changing computer monitor sizes of that era.
I soon got to see this 'doubling down' first hand for myself, when THREE months after we married, Park got the initial spark of creation idea for the spArxx Tonal Palettes™. Back then, he was still working Part Time for the NHL, as well as working a separate Full Time job.
As the 'doubling down' now became 'quadrupling down' ... PT and FT employee, Newlywed and Inventor ... he stepped down from his position in the NHL to allow the space for more desperately needed time and focus.
Although the NHL is now a past chapter, his connections to ice hockey go all the way back to his childhood. In college, Park's hockey jersey number was 23 … and it's been his favorite and lucky number ever since. Come on New Year '23, we're ready and waiting for you! (This post will be my 23rd published blog). Park's love, support and encouragement is my spiritual springboard!
I call Park my 'Glad Scientist'. I used to refer to him as my 'Mad Scientist', but words are important as they in and of themselves hold certain frequencies and energy.
Though 'Mad' loosely used as an adverb can simply mean "very" or "extremely", GLAD is a much more appropriate term to use as I refer to Park on his journey the last few years. How honored am I that he refers to me as his Muse.
He has been patent pending for over a year now for his invention - the process of creating the tuning files- and he just submitted his non-provisional patent application a month ago. Celebrating the win of the patent award will be an amazing day for sure!
Going down the Year of the Rabbit Hole...
The term "Rabbit Hole" was first used in 1865 in Alice in Wonderland, taking on the meaning of getting deep into something complex … or … ending up somewhere strange, as Alice did.
Park did not end up somewhere strange at all. Instead, he ended up in a perfect magical palace of math and music … which led to him conspiring with the Universe to create our musical tuning software platform: spArxx Genesys™.
One day in November 2015 (actually when I was out of town on short family visit) he was deep down an alternative tuning rabbit hole, when inspiration came to him in a lightning bolt flash of creation … a connection, between musical tunings, and the mathematics behind those computer screen dimension algorithms from all the way back in 2008!
Finn, enjoying his papa's original music!
Park played keyboards back in the day in bands, and he's always played guitar, but he switched his instrument of creation from guitar to electronic synthesizer, and back down the rabbit hole he went! He reworked his old algorithms to generate tunings that could be pla
