Why is it that you are in such a minority on issues such as this? You remind
me of that New Yorker ad where everyone is buried inb the Philadelphia
Inquirer while the lone observer frantically points to the sky, which is
beginning to fall.

What is your basis regarding music? That it is a purely scientific,
mathematical exercise, requiring scientific proof to accept certain notions
or descriptions about sound? You ask for facts. What kind of facts? Much of
our world is developed on concensus and convention, including many of our
laws, that do not spring apriori from someone's awareness of metaphysics,
but from experiment and experience. By dispensing with some of the
conclusions reached here as pure balderdash, you dispense with the basic
process by which we think, and I suggest, we came up with music in the first
place.
