How music hijacked our brains

#48386 3 years, 2 months ago

Harnessed: How Language and Music Mimicked Nature and Transformed Ape to Man, is a new book by neurobiologist Mark Changizi.

Awesome science, "...Take a deeper look into the brain, and you may have an even more convincing case for music being an intrinsic characteristic of the human experience, says Edward Large, who studies how the brain processes sound and rhythm. While Changizi's musical analysis sounds reasonable, there may be an even deeper universality.
...Changizi explains: Just look at cats: “Although tuna is not what cat ancestors ate, tuna is sufficiently meat-ish in odor and taste that it fits right into a cat’s finicky diet disposition.” And music, it seems, is tuna for our finicky brains."

Hot Tuna that is....
... that one word is "why?"

Music alone may span that space between the finite and the infinite. Edgar Cayce Reading 3659-1
