"The seven vowels, which we use every day in speech, are truly mysterious things.  Analysis shows that vowels depend on the phenomenon of harmonics, which is at the very basis of music, while our sensitivity to them proves that the human ear is naturally attuned to harmony.  When we hear vowels, we are hearing the laws of harmony, which are ultimately the laws of number that are said to govern the universe.  there is also an esoteric tradition that links the vowels to the seven planets of astrology and the gods that rule them.  The mythological background includes such topics as the vowel-names of IAO, IAHWE, and other gods; the invocations of planets used in Egyptian temples and in Greek magical incantations; the power of wordless song to illuminate and heal, and even - if the reports of occultists are true - to aid the soul after it has left the body."
