I agree with Sarge. Additionally, I want combat lessons on how to use my ears like a man...also, with sensitivity.

    Music is based on math

     And archtecture, and computer programs and maybe a couple of other things. It's how music departs from math (by, for example, sounding like something) that marks it out from other phenomena that are also based on math. Posting on an internet forum, like killing space monsters and ripping Mahler to my hard drive are math-based. My chili recipe is an electrochemical extravaganza, though I rarely refer to the Periodic Table when I write it out.
