[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]
"...but I am most capitvated by the idea of the Earth's crust vibrating at an ascertainable frequency since it would theoretically be possible to calculate the precise note. True, it would probably not be a pure tone because there would be all sorts of harmonic interference from irregularities such as mountain ranges. Yet it ought to be possible to determine the fundamental note of the planet, the music of our spheroid."
