The numbers under the heading ‘Time’ at the right of Figure 3 result from the multiplication of the number of vibrations per second of the fundamental tone C (16) with the order number of the partial series at the left of this table. The C major chord created by the upper three pitches displays a periodicity of (3x16) + (4x16) + (5x16): the vibrations coincide at the beginning of the period, then separate to coincide once again at the end of the period. This is then transferred to the domain of rhythm, as can be seen from Figure 4.
