Wasn't it John Cage who said, that every sound it music, even silence? I still don't agree with you. Music is nothing without aesthetics, taste and emotion. Mathematics, on the other hand, is (almost) not affected be such factors. If a mathematical function or figure evokes such an effect from the reader, it's just his problem! Which does not mean that I don't like mathematics. As a matter of fact, I do. Jan ===== "Originality is the art of concealing your source." - Franklin P.
