Let’s stack consecutive fifths from note D in both directions: 3 fifths upwards and 3 fifths downwards. We will have the D dorian scale. One more step of a fifth in each direction yields F# and B♭. With this notes instead of F and B we have the melodic D major and melodic G minor.
Next step upwards yields C# and the harmonic D major, while a step downwards would give us E♭ and the phrygian dominant mode of the harmonic G minor.
Both these steps (notes C# and E♭ instead of C and E) yield double harmonic major scale on D and double harmonic minor scale on G.
All these scales feature symmetry around the center D. The harmonic major and phrygian dominant mode of the harmonic minor are the exception: they are symmetric one with another (the ascending pattern of intervals of one repeats the descending pattern of the other).
Each symmetric scale has a mode for each of its individual scale degrees.
This method shows correlation between the place of a scale or a mode in the circle of fifths and its degree of relation to the first diatonic scale in this system – D dorian scale.
So we have:
1. D – tonic
2. A, G – dominant and subdominant
3. D, A, G, E, C – pentatonic scale
4. Next two notes (F and B) yield a seven-note diatonic scale.
5. Then in order to produce diatonic scales we will use alterations instead of adding new notes. We will get melodic, harmonic and double harmonic scales.
6. Then next alterations will yield a six-note scale D, E♭, F#, G#, B♭, C#.
7. Next double step yields D# and D♭ instead of D and yield pentatonic scale G#, B♭, C#, E♭, F# – five black keys of the keyboard. This new pentatonic scale and the first pentatonic scale are a tritone apart.
The order of the alterations is the reversed order of adding new notes.
Tonic, dominant and subdominant were the first notes that appeared in this process and the last notes that were altered. This stability illustrates their meaning in the key.
Notes F and B were the last notes that appeared in the process of adding new notes and immediately were altered. They are the most unstable notes in D dorian. In blues, for example, D dorian with F may sound over D mixolydian with F#.

Bronchial #asthma

I have got rid of my bronchial asthma. It took me 20 years. And you need nothing to do for it. I’d say all you need is NOT TO DO something - not to eat meat, fish, eggs and milk. 20 years ago I became a vegetarian. To eat something health-giving or to take some medicine is not the point. The cause of your asthma wasn’t absence of medical treatment (before you got ill). So having this treatment only fights the symptoms. The idea is to eliminate the cause (meat, fish, eggs and milk). The idea isn’t to add something good - the idea is to eliminate something bad.

Some people have digestion that cannot break down molecules of animal proteins into amino acids. These large fragments of the molecules of animal proteins go to blood where they must not to be. The immune response to this uninvited guest is the asthma attack.

You may say there are several amino acids that cannot be found in vegetable proteins.

One animal must obtain them eating another animal. Something’s wrong with this logic, didn't you think so? Where this another animal can get these amino acids? I read that if our organism cannot synthesize these amino acids on its own there are microorganisms (in our digestive system) that can do this job for us.

Our organism is lazy. If it can get amino acids from food it will not synthesize them. If tomorrow you become vegan your organism will wait for his habitual food and will not do what it must and can do. How long? I don’t know. To avoid problems you must act gradually. I quitted eating meat and cheese after 7 days starvation and 1 year later I quitted eating fish (again after 7 days starvation). In several months the asthma attacks began to occur more and more seldom.
