Similarly to the way Bach and the Equal Temperament created a common scale for musicians what they do is allow people an agreed method for communcating ideas - which can only be a good thing.
and arguably, there being twelve notes in the scale, not eight, the eight-note scale with flats and sharps is a bit of a musical strait jacket, like an apple-pied bed. can't have a good stretch out, as it were. it doesn't suit every culture's folk music. just imagine the paradigm shift in music if all twelve notes were treated as equals instead of there being seven white and five less important black keys on a piano. imagine the difference in the psychological effect.
I play the violin, in all theory if I don't play from Sheet music, all notes are equal...but they aren't, f sharp does not equal g flat except on a tempered piano.
then again you notice the sound change once you add more flats or sharps... because the empty strings don't resonate with g/d/a/e flat. so there's different musical mindframes and not all notes are creates equal, but it varies by instrument.
which by extension to numerology would mean you might get different insights depending on the number base used - and what is true then?
