Musica Universalis

Even the ancients used the metaphor of sound and music to explain the workings of the universe.

The more I read about The Music of the Spheres, the more I am convinced that sound, or at least elastic vibrations are what hold the universe together.

Sounds a little like string theory to my colleague Mary Catherine.

But doesn't it go to follow that if the forces holding matter together can be analogous to sound, that subsonic sound might possibly trigger something in the brain?

I know somewhere down the road, this is all going to tie together.
