I still believe in melody.

Dissonance has its place, but the basic fabric of the universe appears to be consonance.

The stars, the galaxies, the planets (and the organs of the body) all exist as interrelated parts of a harmonious whole.

Rhythmic patterns crystallize identities.

Life is melody (individuality),

                 harmony (co-operation),

                      and  rhythm (movement).
