Emotions resonate with harmonic string vibrations.

Interesting phenomenon, that. Tones of congruent frequency combinations played simultaneously inspire outpouring of emotional feelings in humans simply within earshot. Top that off with this. Some of these harmonic designs were creatively harnessed or birthed some hundreds of years ago. Time travel? We do it every day. An endlessly flowing sequence of events cascaded through the fog of probability to reach your ears and make you feel the way these vibrational ratios--by their very mysterious nature--do. Connected, perturbed, blissful, terrified, aware, meaningful...resonant.
