Music For Your Nerves
According to the Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, we live according to the "music of the spheres." Holding to this concept means seeing the universe as a complex, musical arrangement of cosmologies, geometries, and heavenly bodies-all of which are moving in harmonic relationships with one another. The concept is often poked fun of for being "new-agey" or "sci-fi."
But a team of Danish scientists has recently made the leap of suggesting that nerves in our body may communicate through sound waves, and not electricity. The discovery, if true, would lend itself quite handily to larger analogies. If it is music, not electricity, that transmits messages throughout the body/mind system, then it may not be far fetched to say that Pythagoras was correct.
