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.
