'The music is meant to affect the head, heart and feet simultaneously. It plays to your desire for pleasure. Originally, music and tribal rhythms were used for ritual purposes - for the accumulation of sexual and intellectual energy. We'd like our music to affect the listener in that way - as say a drug would.'

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken', and then they would actually change their minds and you would never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion."
