Strange Bedfellows


The above excerpt from Google News was suggested

  1. by David Lavery’s June 19 weblog entry “Future Books,”
  2. by an example of this sort of book– “The Holy of Holies: The Constituents of Emptiness,”
  3. by the June 19 NY Lottery midday number 354 (the name of an empty page in Wallace Stevens: Collected Poetry and Prose, Library of America, 1997), and
  4. by the musical meaning of the numbers 3, 5, 4– the frequency ratios of the notes G, E, C
    The musical notes G, E, C on the piano

    and hence the numerical equivalent of the NBC chimes.
“We have heard
  the chimes at midnight.”
— William Shakespeare 
  and Orson Welles
