Leibniz um tónlist

Musica est exercitium arithmeticae occultum nescientis se numerare animi
The pleasure we obtain from music comes from counting, but counting unconsciously. Music is nothing but unconscious arithmetic.
From a letter to Goldbach, 27 April 1712, quoted in O Sacks, The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat
