Even if you haven't seen the movie 2001 Space Odyssey you'll probably be aware of the booming drums & the building tension of the epic musical score - many have tried to unravel the mysterious captivation of this sound-scape work, citing it as a clue in Nietzche's world-riddle and even as a hint to the meaning of life itself! Those people may have been smoking too much Pot, but it's also true that we don't understand music entirely either. Perhaps there is a correlation between the patterns of music and the patterns of the universe? Take this animated minimalist map of the celestial bodies of our solar system for example, I'm not saying its going to spawn an evolutionary leap in human existence but it could be a small piece in the puzzle.
