Phase is a term used to indicate the relative positions of the wave peaks in a complex waveform. In other words, when dealing with a complex wave (multiple frequencies), the peaks and valleys of the waves either match up or not. IN PHASE refers to a condition where all of the peaks and valleys of the different waves, whereas OUT OF PHASE indicates that the peaks and valleys do not exactly overlap. Phase is measured in degrees of a circle from zero to 360 degrees. Phase distribution refers to acoustic partials only, not the automatous partials shown in the Spectral Essence views. When partials are IN PHASE it indicates a condition of transient order and usually indicates something that is about to manifest. OUT OF PHASE (highly distributed) signatures indicate a chaotic condition of relative stability and calm.
There are two different indicators of phase distribution:
1. PHASE COHERENCY (in/out of phase): ideally, the phase should be fully distributed...equal amounts of in-phase and out of phase components. If all partials were at zero or 360 degrees of phase, the result would sound like pulses or clicks. (shown on the linear view data page). The phasing of the complex partials, as formed by the relationship between their real and imaginarycomponents, can be seen on this page. The zoom function allows various bandwidths to show in the screen.
2. PHASE DISTRIBUTION is also shown on the polar view data page. This view is a typical clock diagram with zero and 360 degrees at 12:00, 90 degrees at 3:00, 180 degrees at 6:00, and 270 degrees at 9:00 on the clock face. Ideally, a full distribution around the circle is preferable and indicates one’s ability to get things done. Four quadrants of the manifestation cycle: reveals how well a person functions in the four areas of quadrants of the Manifestation Cycle: (shown on the data page under polar view - click the linear button to switch to the polar view and again to switch back to linear). The total values of magnitude present in each quadrant of the Phase Cycle are shown in the corners of the diagrams. A normal distribution shows 25% in each quadrant.
THOUGHT = 360 TO 270 DEGRESS VIOLET & PURPLE
EXPRESSION = 270 TO 180 DEGRESS BLUE & INDIGO
ACTION = 180 TO 90 DEGREES GREEN & YELLOW
MANIFESTATION = 9O TO ZERO DEGRESS ORANGE & RED
The Phase distribution in the polar view above indicates an individual who is focused primarily on thinking about rather than expressing, acting, or manifesting their thoughts. In addition, it also shows an octave distribution focused mainly on the D and D# music notes. See Octave Distribution for more information.
