If Aliens Exist, They'll Love Bach

Recommended Posts

Certainly the rules of mathematics would apply anywhere in this universe. Aliens (If they exist) are simmilar to us in that they evolved under the same rules that govern this universe as we did. They also must have had to experience the same laws of the universe as us. I think the axioms of their mathematics not contradict ours. And if aliens one day meet us, I hope like scraggy that they appreciate our art, or there will be nothing stopping them from annhilating us or using us as guinea pigs for their experiments. Or, at least, our art will give them one reason not to kill us all.

Aliens wouldn't "love Bach", they'd most likely hate him. Just like African tribes hate Beethoven.

If we're talking mathematics, aliens would be more inclined to like Boulez than Bach.

I think what they will or will not like is largely depending on the shape of their ears, and since we don't know that this discussion is point-less (unless you're Vulcan)

I hate Bach. He's boring. I wrote a paper in my first semester of a music history in which I said, "Bach was a hack".

Oh man, pretty much any music that's been based heavily in math would probably be fairly entertaining to an alien race. Granted, they could be tone-deaf as well and completely ignore us musicians, think us pointless, and turn us into cattle. ;_;

You're clearly retarded.

I lol'd.

I'd say something about Bach not being a hack but it'd be redundant and pointless.

I would like to read this paper. I can tell you now-- you're wrong! ;)-- but it would be interesting to read.

Music can be based on math in many diffrent ways...

Hey, anything can be described using math, it dosen't make it inherintley mathmatical.

Why is it that we always assume aliens are technologically advanced? :o They could be cavemen for all we know. :P Even so, they would probably love Bach. At least, some type of music. If they didn't, they would probably love to discover it. Everyone needs music. :w00t:

Good point there :) Music is intended to influences the spiritual constituent, not mind. So if the aliens have it at all - they would definitely be touched by Bach.)

P.S. Lol'd at this part:

"What about Lady Gaga?" a member of the audience asked, referring to the American pop singer.

"I won't even go there," Schwob replied.
