    Apr 23 2013: Music is proved to raise dopamine levels in our body -that's the small (or big) chill you feel when you listen to your favourite songs. Also, music seems to affect water (positively or negatively depends on the music's complexity and harmony; the more harmonic, the better) and since our bodies are full of water, I guess music is amazing for us.
    I believe that music is the greatest achievement of mankind. It's actually an effort to mimic the harmony of the cosmos around us, an effort to mimic the way molecules move in their waves with the waves of the sound of music. Music hides emotions, stories, thoughts, souls, secrets. I think it is amazing. And as a musician who I've met said, music is the best and healthiest way to get high.
