meruda, Joseph Campbell! That's who I meant by whats his face. The follow your bliss fellow. Didn't he explain that these universal stories enliven deep brain structures? Of course Carl Jung said something along those lines but a little different, writing about the collective unconscious. Anyway, it's all to do with our bodies, the rhythms of our heart beat, the coursing of the blood in our veins, the breathing in and out at different paces at different times. These rhythms are essential not only to the obvious art form, music, but I think to all the art forms, even the strictly visual like paintings and sculpture. The rhythms of light and dark, broad stroke and delicate stroke, the undulations of materials making peaks and valleys. All these rhythms sing to us. Or they don't. Do you remember that Maharishi once said that in the AofE even poetry writing would be scientific?!
