comment What is the difference between a mode and a scale?
A scale that is octave-repeatable has a pattern that repeats itself at every 2x frequency note, or note with the same name in a different octave. It is possible to have a scale that is not octave-repeatable, that instead repeats at an interval larger or smaller than an octave. Say, WHWHHWHH -- this would repeat at the major 7th. If I knew more about indian music I'd be able to speak with more authority about what might be considered a mode (or not) of that, but in typical western parlance, we only consider modes to be permutations of octave-repeatable note sets.

I haven't the slightest idea what it means to inflate a carrot.

comment How to correctly position your larynx when singing?
@user10893 Indeed; by "as few muscle groups as possible", I really mean "don't add tension in muscles that aren't required".

comment Instruments that challenge your ear
The clarinet register key is indeed an octave and a fifth, but the saxophone has an octave key. Oboe is similar to flute in that the octave vent moves as you go up the scale (saxophone actually does the same mechanically, to an extent).

@MeaningfulUsername "How was/is music theory developed?" seems to encompass all that OP is asking.

I think there are a few things the OP doesn't understand about music theory, but that doesn't mean the question should be closed -- SE is open to all levels of expertise, and this question is answerable.
