    Hello Jan,

    Music is a language just like Mathematics. It is not possible to be Human without either.

      Yes, you are right. We can't be human without either. I think.

    God, NO! Music is one of the few things in this world that keeps me sane.

    Never thought of the possibility having been a music lover all my life. I believe that we would still be human without it but, a large facet of humanity would be noticeably missing. Many positions and opportunities would not exist without it. People would not be perked up, or brought down emotionally without music. Relaxing or even working would not be the same for many. Human life would be quite dull and lifeless without music.

    No, I can't. That would be like sunshine on the earth but no flowers to bloom.

    I do HVAC work, and the two most mechanically gifted guys I've ever got to work with were both persons who had no interest in music at all.

    Me...I'm always interested in music...and I'm not really very mechanically minded/talented at all.

    So what I'm saying here is that some extremely talented and necessary types of minds live in that netherworld where the arts aren't much appreciated.  It takes all kinds to make the world go round smile

    I could not imagine no music in the world. But on the other hand if we never knew what music was in the first place we would not be able to miss it. : )

    There is music and there is music.   I often used to joke with my younger son when he was a teenager that my favorite song was 'The Sound of Silence.'   He knew I wasn't referring to Simon and Garfunkle.  Silence can be wonderful but, for some reason, so many today can't stand it.  But back to music.

    Now I like a lot of the oldies, that's why I listen to easy-listening programs which play 1950s, 60s and 70s songs.  But I don't restrict myself to them, of course.  I like a lot of the newer stuff, too.  What really makes me cringe mentally is to listen to these 'one word songs' with nothing going for them but a heart-thudding automated drum beat made by a computer.   Take away the drum beat and there'd be no tune or song at all.

    Incidentally, these are generally the sorts of noises or cacophony you hear radiating from cars in the which the whole boot has been turned into an echo-chamber for a pair of gargantuan speakers.   Whole neighborhoods have to suffer as such drive by.   

    The positive side is that the Coclear Inplant companys that make hearing aids shares are going to continue to rise as the years go by... unless, of course, the fad for this Boom! boom! boom! type music is superseded by something a littler gentler on the eardrums.

    We would still be human, but it would be a sadder world.

    The music is all around us, we don't even realize it, you wake up (if you are lucky to the sound of bird and the hum of wind in trees around your house)...and yes man made music is just old as us...so of course not, the world without sound is the dead world...

    Yes we would be human but music keeps our mind in rhythmic form.

      I meant it figuratively, of course.

    I love music and couldn't be without it.  I love the 70's, 80's and 90's era.  (must be because of my age! )   
    But what about people that are profoundly deaf?  They don't hear it like we do. 
    I remember going to a party and we had friends that were deaf and they were dancing to the beat of the music.  They could feel the vibrations.  It was amazing!

      I have deaf friends too. They can feel the music! However, it must be difficult not to be able to hear, like for example the aging van Beethoven experienced it painfully...

    I don't want to know a world without music.
