### Orbital Geometry

and as there has been no mention of Richard Merrick here, I thought some of you might be interested in his ideas.

[quote]From prior discussions, you may recall that the tritone {D, G#} is the axis of symmetry and greatest stability within a {C} major scale. And that at a right angle to this axis is the diatonic tritone {B, F}, representing the axis of greatest resonance and instability within {C} major. As we now find them on the Chromatic Ring, the vertical axis becomes the stable Harmonic Axis and the horizontal axis the â€œrestlessâ€
