Give always honours to the whole
I can only give honour to individuals
Only in individuals I´ve seen the whole.
Friedrich Schiller (a german poet)
Mankind has gained valuable knowlegde trough Hans Cousto. That´s why it is important to honour the scientific work of the mathematician, harmonic and philosopher. We want Cousto to get a public award. The following collection of signatures was set up by me to arrange a tribute to his achievements. Before getting a prize it is necessary to be nominated. This way the collection of signatures forces the judges responsible for nomination, to take the work of our honoured into concern. By giving our signatures we try to do justice by wanting a modest, yet brilliant researcher to be nominated. By a public tribute we want to thank him for the music he got from the sky and at the same time we want to write him a big “thank you” into the clouds.
Here is the internet-tool to sign the petition
The law of the Cosmic Octav, discovered by Hans Cousto, delivers a scientific explanation for the Eastern mystical OM - music since the OM - sound (which has been celebrated there for milleniums) stands in direct analogy to the Earth Year, i.e., to the course period of the Earth around the Sun. Through this octav - analogy, Cousto could prove the scientific correlation between the tuning in traditional Indian music and the Nature of our cosmic surroundings. (compare 1, p.42 et seq) The discovery of the coincidence of OM - sound and year sound, the identity of these basic sounds, is of expressively syncretic character and therefore of utmost musical, scientific, philosophical and religious interest. People from different cultures and religions will be linked up mentally and spiritually on the basis of this discovery. Not only do we as Westeners get mental access to the OM- ceremonies of the Indians, demystifying the Indian arts of sound, the Indians also get handed out a scientific explanation for their sound experiences by us. Thus, a mental bridge between Orient and Occident has been created which could not be more elegant and harmonious in itself. Physiologically seen, the OM - sound or the year sound is the equivalent of the heart sound of earthly beings. What´s primarily only be understood intellectually, matures with a distinct experience to certainty. Consequently, there will be people who consider Cousto’s discoveries only logically correct, meanwhile others will fully enjoy the experience of cosmic harmony. It is not surprising that Chinese music is based on the octave sound of the Platonic year (compare 1, p. 50 et seq) and that the Occident has an affinity towards the day - sound of the Earth (compare 1, p. 26 et seq). This music - theoretical contemplation of various human cultures offers a brilliant possibility of international understanding and mutural accommodation. An understanding of human races and people is a necessity of our time. Cousto’s merit lies in his discoveries, his widespread education and comprehensive teachings of his knowledge.
On a worldwide scale, the Cosmic Octave is a fundamental physical principle which can evidently be verified in various examples and which has an immediate significance for human life. This encourages us to further scientific research.
2.1. The valuable determination of the gravitation radius of our sun (partly denominated as “gravitation length”) has been proved by Cousto through the Kepler laws and through the Gravitational law of Newton. (compare 1, p. 221 et seq) Anyway, this gravitation radius is not entirely new in physics, but its calculation has never been done in such a complete and demonstrative way. Here an especially elegant description and derivation is offered which tells everybody exactly about the matter. Moreover, a subsequent determination of the gravitation frequency of a mass is a new thing for the whole scientific habitus. Based on this clear proof, I was enabled to show universal units evidently, today known as „Planck units“, and to clarify mistakes in the current determinations. (see website www.friedenswarte.de and click button “Die philosophische Einheit”,
directly: http://www.friedenswarte.de/diephilosophischeeinheit.pdf )
The gravitation radius of the mass of our sun is interestingly exactly ten times as large as the height of the Egypt Cheops Pyramid, the gravitation circumference equals the sum of the length of its four basic edges. This discovery of Cousto links us with the knowledge of the Ancient Egyptians who used the decimal system themselves for their calculations. (compare 1, p. 82) Did the Ancient Egyptians know about these connections without having our terms of gravitation and relativity?
2.2. The respectable discovery of the harmonic intervals under the spectral lines of the hydrogen molecule lifts the scientific attention for the submolecular electron transition on to a harmonic level. The discovery of the harmonic intervals itself is a significant progress in scientific research. Thus, new and wider questions are raised for future research. (compare 2, p. 85 et seq)
2.3. The setting of IR - spectra of chemical substances on the principle of the octave again opened up completely new questions which led to a deeper knowledge of molecular effects. (comp. 2, p. 89 et seq) Today we cannot fully estimate the significance of the setting, but one thing is for sure: molecule models receive an acoustic dimension for the imagination. The model shows for example quantum leaps in chemical reactions that are being accompanied by sounds and thus make the student understand more easily. Settings are said to have psychotrope effects, according to the experiences of some people.
2.4. Cousto also found harmonic relations in the weather radiation discovered by Hans Baumer, named atmospherics or spherics. This radiation indicates an original correlation of weather radiation and rotation period of the Earth. Cousto was the first to make this discovery shortly after the weather radiation was discovered. Harmonic relations can be proved in the electromagnetic weather radiation, revealing an indisputable octave correlation with the daily Earth rotation. (compare 1, p. 38 et seq, 2; p. 32 et seq,
The Cosmic Octave makes a comparison of different oscillations in the universe possible. Thus, a deeper knowledge of the nature of our earthly music is accessible. Consequently, it becomes obvious, that some cultures tune their music intuitively according to basic sounds which equal certain periods of our sun system in octav - analogy. Our Occidental musical sound system is based on the artificial standard pitch a’ of 440 Hz. This administratively determined frequency has no analogy to natural rhythms. For music, a sounding into the universe on the level of scientific philosophy has become true. Hans Cousto has laid the basis for a really universal-harmoniously tuned music.
For many years, Hans has been committed to a reasonable and intelligent treatment of drugs of any kind. So the Drugchecking programme of the club Eve & Rave Berlin initiated by him and others is an attempt to offer a quality control for party drugs to prevent possible risks of intoxication as a consequence of contaminated substances. In the long run, it is planned to give drugs a quality testing, comparable with that for medication. This demand should promote the self-determination of each individual concerning his or her consumption. The dangers of unreflected consumption are widely known. The rigid public opinion cannot change the fact that people use illegal drugs in millions of cases yearly. From the public side, there is no detailed information nor any protection given against contamination. The government contents itself with legal bannings and leaves its people to official repression and in a vacuum of responsibility. That means, the public world does not have any mental power to act sensibly in these spheres of reality. Due the contrary, a wider dash between scientific risk – studies and a political manipulation is emerging. The public dealing of this subject does not only lag behind reality, but even hinders a sensible and prudent use of drugs, in spite of the use of our technological possibilities (of chemical analysis). It is a question of the protection of the human life and the maintenance of the human dignity, which are ignored from the public! The state confronts it´s citizen with the dilemma of repression or outlawing, to exaggerate, and for the outlaw responsibility is neglected. But we are interested in a worth living existence surrounded by an honest cooperation and not in giving absolute values to humanity and a corresponding list of bans. It´s about the truth to live and not about changing it by artificial rules. The current drug policy is counterproductive and legitimizes the inhuman contact with a great amount of our fellows – and much more extremely in those countries were drugs are produces. The association Eve & Rave Berlin is one of the few ones discussing sensitively about the question of the human dignity connected with drug use and – abuse. Those who are serious about human dignity don´t get out of the insight, that by prohibiting drugs a criminalizing factor was brought to mankind. Yearly this factor is paid enormous and serious harms.
The drug consumption is part of the cultures and rites of many indigenous groups. To criminalize these rites means to rob their traditions and identity. Psychonautic experiences belongs to the culture heritage of our world and the dealing with this quite delicate problem plays a key role according to the intercultural and interreligious understanding. The living cultures and rites of the different peoples have to respect and protected at all costs. A transmission of western systems of values shows a great lack of understanding and irresponsibility. We should try to preserve the respect for cultural variety and not to interfere in subtle questions, which are irrelevant for the western understanding, by using unreasonable methods.
In this context Cousto pointed out 2009 that the WHO has forfeited its credibility as an institution for drug policy. Here are concealed scientific studies referring to the harmfulness of different substances and all that doesn´t fit the political concept is censored a way. The WHO is dependent from the policy of the United States so that scientific studies are hold back to maintain the stereotype in their “war against drugs”. Evidently, the WHO is not able to inform the world population factually and seriously! Cousto asks the UNO to withdraw the competences for the field “drugs” and to entrust it to the UNESCO, whose heritage consists of the cultural world heritage and the natural world heritage. Psychonautic rites belong to the oldest traditions of mankind and this way to the world heritage, which is basically the subject of the UNESCO. The UNO is required to realize its responsibility for the peoples of the world. (Vgl. 3, S.11f & 23ff)
In my view, the currently constant crisis in the ethics can be overcome by the idea of development. It´s everybody´s duty to develop and to foster others in their development. From the ethics there arises the legislation of the different countries. Even the legislation of the FRG is based on the ethics. The legitimate is the ethical right, the legal is the resulting, formal right. The new situation of a rising consumption in these parts confronts us with the ethical question of legitimation and can´t be dealt with beneath this level, the level of keeping laws which are obsolete and are not corresponding with the current situation. If drug consumption is justifiable ethically, if it is beneficial for the development for the individual and society (that means legitimate), it can´t be clarified on the level of legality.
Our authority has acquired a good reputation also in this field and it is quite admirable how only a few people fight courageously the inhuman consent laziness and the unreflected opportunism of wide ranges of the public. Our whole society is dependent on those few sinceres and ows them a debt of gratitude.

After having named some of his outstanding achievements, we would like to list some possible awards which we consider applicable for the appreciation of Cousto’s achievements – first and foremost with regard to public welfare. (The numbers in brackets relates to the upper points of discoveries and achievements)
There are Swedish Nobel Prizes for physics, chemistry, physiology/medicine, literature and peace. Hans Cousto is an aspirant for the Nobel Prize of physics and chemistry (2), matching planet sounds to certain parts of the human body using the Cosmic Octave which is interesting for medicine. The Nobel prize for literature is also recommendable because it is bestowed upon authors and writers, no matter what their qualification and literary gender. For the Nobel Prize of Peace a nomination is clearly demanded and desirable in the light of a global peace-loving humanity. (1, 3 & 4)
The Swedish Alternative Nobel Prize (Right Livelihood Award) is awarded for practical solutions to most urgent problems of our time and for models of human lifestyles. As far as peace, human rights, development, culture, spirituality, education and health are concerned, Hans Cousto is clearly dignified of a nomination. (1 & 2, 4)
With the Fields Medal Award, an equivalent for the non-existing Nobel Prize of mathematics, researchers who excel in mathematical research and discovery are awarded. Hans Cousto does not present any higher mathematical innovation, but he discovered the physical significance of the mathematical octave law 2n for the life on our planet. (1, 2) Since this significance goes for all people, the basis is laid for a global harmony.
The Norwegian Abelprize is awarded for extraordinary scientific works in mathematics but can also be seen as a substitute for the missing Nobel Prize of mathematics. For the same reasons as mentioned above with the Fields Medal, Hans Cousto comes into consideration as a nominee here.
The Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz - Prize is bestowed upon scientists working in Germany in different fields of science and it is dedicated to the promotion of young academics. As Cousto does not teach at a university or any other educational institution, this award might not be possible. If he gets a university professorship, this award will also be possible. It should be recognized that in the scientific research of cosmic contexts, Hans Cousto stands in direct line with Plato and Kepler and finds no other equivalent on the same height. (1, 2, 3)
The German Ernst Schering - Prize is awarded to outstanding achievements in the field of scientific basic research. A nomination because of 1, 2 and 3 is clearly indicated.
The Wolf - Prize is awarded for merits for common welfare and for the maintainance of friendly relations between the people. Because of all the achievements mentioned above, Hans Cousto is an owned candidate for this prize. (1)
On a worldwide scale, the Balzan - Prize awards excellent scientists from the humanities and natural science as well as personalities from art and culture. For his merits for peace, humanity and brotherhood among the people, Hans Cousto derserves this prize. (1, 3 & 4)
The Swedish Crafoord - Prize is awarded for basic disciplines not covered by the Nobel Prize like mathematics and astronomy. Hans Cousto is a dignified candidate because of 1, 2 and 3.
The Templeton - Prize is given for merits fostering the connection of science and religion. Because of 1 and 3, Hans Cousto is an unconditional aspirant here.
The Spanish Prince of Asturias - Prize is given to people, institutions and groups who excel in their biography in one of eight categories: art, humanities, literature, social studies, communication, social sciences, concord, international cooperation, scientific and technological research as well as sports. Apart from sports, one could list good reasons for Hans Cousto’s nomination here.
