Default Light and sound



Both of these work according to the Diatonic scale i heard. So what is the
difference? Just higher/lower vibration frequency in the aether?

Thanks

You heard wrong. "Frequency" is a continuous variable, whether it is
mechanical (sound) or electromagnetic (light) vibrations. Between any
two given frequencies there ae an infinite number of *possible*
frequencies.

The "diatonic" scale is one of many different conventions for
constructing "music" with sounds. There is nothing analogous to
musical scales in the science of light.

No aether about it...
A sea of electyrons,
and a sea of molecules
They both "work" according to "vibrations of matter", yet...
sound is a vibration of molecules and larger stuff, (larger vibrations)
light is vibration of electrons and smaller stuff. (smaller vibrations)
