Just what is science?
Countless thousands found their own solutions to this mother of all inquiry, none of which mirrored that of another.
All would agree, however, science is mathematics.
Science is physics, science is biology.
Science searches for answers to the infinite question that is our universe, and everything in it no matter its magnitude.
Science can be as vast as star system or as small as the particles that make up the atoms that make up you.
Science is you, the way your body functions; the process of your thought.
The way your digestive system interacts with bacteria, so minute, a population as numerous as humans on Earth could fit in your palm. Science is about what would happen if they were actually in your palm.
Science is about everyone that exists, existed, will exist; science is everything.
Science is music.
Little echoes more of science than music itself.
Every note, every systematic rhythm or beat sends scores of waveforms hurtling through space, until it finally reaches and nestles itself into your eardrums, sending synapses up your nerves and effecting you in ways that only now are being uncovered in depth.
For too long, music has been thought of noise, simply, arranged in a pattern just right.
Science has shown otherwise.
Harmonic patterns are being found everywhere.
From the cellular makeup of a simple fig leaf to the seemingly ?random? arrangements of planets around a dying sun, we find, as we would call it, music.
And music is hardly random.
