The short piano riff for the constellations at the beginning of the video is awesome. If anyone knows how to play these or know where I can find the score for these, that would be greatly appreciated.

Considering we are all the manifestation of the Universe ourselves, and we create music anyways...is that not the same thing? Video game music > gassy rocks floating in space

Percevoir "la musique des sphères" est une expérience vibratoire interne qui relève de mouvements ondulatoires divers, de champs scalaires etc ... et c'est à chacun d'apprendre à percevoir avec les dimensions à son niveau en évolution de conscience STELLAIRE et COSMIQUE ! Effectivement l'observation des étoiles est une piste inspirée !!

there's no such thing as a "karate-kick"@12:54 - that kick is called an axe-kick or Hammer kick & Tae Kwon Do is the chief proponent of this dramatic & effective execution correctly called *naeryeo chagi* .

Light converted into sound. Movement converted into a (naturally occurring) rhythm Mind blown! Now THAT is a musical message you send to a specific star system! That kind of intelligence will get us some respect

it's believed that the astrobelt in our universe - used to be a planet in the distant past. Maybe we once sounds as beautiful as those other planet systems and now we are doomed.

Best way to express it. Universe is beyond everything.
Mikah Kilgore (7 days ago)
I started crying when he talked about the auditory planetarium. I haven’t been able to see the stars for the last 14 years or so. I need to experience this! As a visually impaired musician who is also a lover of outer space, that would probably be life changing for me.
SYSTEM Sounds (7 days ago)
Hi Mikah, please contact me through system-sounds.com, I'd love to help make that happen!

Our solar system seems to have been created by an angry God. No wonder religions conceived on Earth reflect that.

+Midnight dude, dont you bother,its a waste. The ammount of ignorance demonstrated by her statement its enough to determinate the possession of a lesser mind. Though your attemp to educate is valuable nontheless...
Midnight (2 days ago)
+Tiger kite there are no natural elements we haven't discovered yet. If you look not at the periodic table (which shows only every element) but on an isotopic map, which also shows every isotope of every element, there are no gaps left to fill. Every new element that is discovered today is huge, mostly incredibly unstable and radioactive, so nothing you can build life forms with.
Midnight (2 days ago)
Because oxygen is needed for all higher life forms? There is no multicellular life form that relies solely on fermentation to produce their energy, because it is too inefficient. Also, organic(-like) life has to be based on carbon, because no other element can create four bonds at once AND double bonds at the same time. And since carbon has the tendency to be around in the form of carbon dioxide, the most likely outcome is oxygen breathing life.
Tiger kite (6 days ago)
+Maddie Patty could it be that that new element is on another planet? Sorry, I'm not good at science. Thinking about it theoretically is interesting though
Maddie Patty (6 days ago)
Oxygen in nessicary to ALLL life, unless a new element is found to provide stable life. Look it up

[And] who created seven heavens in layers. You do not see in the creation of the Most Merciful any inconsistency. So return [your] vision [to the sky]; do you see any breaks? Then return [your] vision twice again. [Your] vision will return to you humbled while it is fatigued. (The Noble Quran. Surah Al Mulk. Verse 3-4) It is Allah who erected the heavens without pillars that you [can] see. (The Noble Quran. Surah Ar Rad. Verse 2) And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander. (Surah Adh Dhariyat. Verse 47) And it is He who created the night and the day and the sun and the moon; all [heavenly bodies] in an orbit are swimming. (Al Anbya. Verse 33) Have they not seen that We set upon the land, reducing it from its borders? (Surah Ar Rad. Verse 41) And you see the mountains, thinking them rigid, while they will pass as the passing of clouds. [It is] the work of Allah, who perfected all things. (Suran An Naml Verse 88) It is Allah who has created seven heavens and of the earth, the like of them. (Surah Talaq. Verse 12) "And if whatever trees upon the earth were pens and the sea [was ink], replenished thereafter by seven [more] seas, the words of Allah would not be exhausted. Indeed, Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise." (The Noble Quran. Surah Luqman Verse 27) And listen to the great voice of the Noble Quran. Really amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVY8pwx9B74 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVqY9TYEkvk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Omh4oG8T_Fw

UlshaRS (8 days ago)
A wonderful demonstration that added quite a bit more to my paltry music education, course I was cringing the second the term "finely tuned" was used because here comes the creationists.
Tiger kite (7 days ago)
Why cringe at someone else's beliefs? I suppose there's something comforting or beautiful in thinking your universe was "finely tuned" by a creator. They aren't hurting anyone, so let them have their fun
