Throughout school, I learned to accept at least one single truth:  I suck at math.  Hate it.  Think it’s pointless and irrelevant in daily life.   I’m more of an English/Social Studies guy than a Science/Math guy.  I’m interested in the arts.  You know— movies, TV, and music.

Well, at least I’ve long considered music one of the arts.  I guess I still do, and many people throughout the world do as well.  However, it has become increasingly apparent that music is not simply a form of self-expression or storytelling.  It is, essentially, mathematics.
