    Default Trah lah lah

    So you've got plenty of musical intelligence, what good is that aside from within the field of music itself? Does it have any other applications?

    Teaching tunes to parrots? Singing kids to sleep?

    Where did I read that singing might be a more primitive part of speech?

    Errm isn't that all music kind of related though? I'm trying to find if it can be part of another process like with most of the others, if not all.

    Could it be said to be a part of timing in relation to things like baseball and other such games where you have to calculate the approach of the ball or is that all spatial/ BK ?

    I expect musical intelligence is linked to linguistic skills... ability to understand speech and interpret it?

    I think they queered that one up with linguistic intelligence didn't they?

    It just seems to be the one most useless classification of intelligence. Well except for when you have an audience and are supposed to entertain them with music I suppose. Then it's kinda nice

    From what standpoint, Xander?
    An interesting question though I must say.
    I do not know if a moral aspect is an application.
    Let us say it is.
    Does music refine character?
    No.

    Polanski survived the Holocaust. He made the movie the Pianist.
    It is a true story. The pianist hides in Warsaw and is found out by a German officer.
    He plays to the German officer and survives.
    Could he have survived if he had not played?

    SO you wouldn't say that such is a tightly defined set of criteria to make it useful when compared to say logical intelligence?

    Did you say a logical something? Yawn.

    I am in a hurry. The new ballet company has got a performance tonight.
