Williams and Williams alone derived/created the 4ths & 5ths technology, no one else, and how dare U, he is NOT DRACULAR either, even though Michel de Nostradame wrote a Quatrain about him in 1555,  a translation from French Pattwa " In a faraway isle, with parasol images, an instrument for recording sounds, he would seduce the world with mystagogic tones", the cycle of 5ths or 4ths & 5ths NEVER appeared in any TEXT BOOK in the 16th Century or prior to that, not untill in the late 1970s did it start showing up in music theory, I never saw anything in any of MY musical catechism about it in 1956 when I started learning to read music, I do not know what science fiction story book's U been reading, it seem's like, The Cow Jump Over the Moon "Author Cutridge" wrote the literature you're reading or getting your information from, end of comments and conversations...

WHY, because Williams is part Black and part Indian, who did not go to High School or a University, a carpenter pan man that  was born in Trinidad & Tobago in 1931? Mr Lusk, we as a people are living in a Culture where it's ok to bring down one another, via  jealousy or abuse with total disrespect, normally I wouldn't respond to your comment, however, in July of 1963 when we of SNSE applied for the International Patent, in the name of  Anthony Williams, a search warranted which they did in London, that took 2 and 1/2 months, the result came back that it was granted on the 18th September 1963 as NO ONE ELSE had created anything identical or similar, the individual whom created the Geometric Theorem that Williams used was, 500 BC Greek Mathematician "PYTHAGORAS", before he was murdered burned to death, in "CENTRO UNIVERSITARIO A DISTANZA PITAGORA ", his own University, other's who used his theorem were, Plato, Damonof Athens, the Musicial instructor of Socrates, Nicholos Copenicas, Tycho Brahe and Johann Kepler who ceated the 5 lines & 4 spaces for the musical manuscript that we use in today's music, I could disclose muchmore but I won't...
