From “The Dance of Life: The Other Dimension of Time” by Edward T. Hall:
Before the Renaissance, God was conceived of as sound or vibration. This is understandable because the rhythm of a people may yet prove to be the most binding of all the forces that hold human beings together. as a matter of fact, I have come to the conclusion that the human species lives in a sea of rhythm, ineffable to some, but quite intangible to others. This explains why some composers really do seem to be able to tap into that sea and express for the people the rhythms that are felt but not yet expressed as music. Poets do this too, though at a different level.
