Cosmos “Cosmos” is a term used synonymously with “universe”. The kosmos of the ancient Greeks and Christian Middle Ages consisted of the Earth at the center of a series of concentric, revolving spheres to which the Moon, Sun, planets, and stars were fixed. In the scheme of Aristotle and Ptolemy, which prevailed until the Copernican Revolution, only one kosmos was allowed with nothing beyond. According to the school of atomism, however, there were many kosmoi, distinct and separate from our own, each with a world, possibly inhabited, at its heart. — David Darling’s Internet Encyclopedia of Science (Cosmology entries)

It is general knowledge that the notion of harmony comes from the ancient Greek word, harmonia. It was a key word of the Pythagoreanism and meant primarily the joining or fitting of things together. Originally it was connected to the concept of cosmos. The numerical explanation of the universe was a generalization from the discovery made by Pythagoras himself and revealed the numerical ratios which determine the concordant intervals of the scale. We find it clearly in Aristotle’s explanation of Pythagoras harmony of the spheres and also in Plato’s statements. — T. V. Hightower, The Harmony of the Spheres
