Ding Ding Ding! Let Round One Begin!!!!

Okay, it's time to stir up the hornets' nest! How and why is syncopation bad? Music has a direct effect on the brain, so, what are the effects of syncopated music? And while we're at it, what are the effects on the brain that listening to the musical "Wicked" causes?

Based on a True Story: The Myth of St. Edith Stein

Within an older world lived she, with stars
Both regular and sharp. Alone, with He,
Elusive, dropping hints to follow far
Into a Sinai, past Europe’s debris.
But not enough for some were all these hints:
For were they careful, they would find a treat
That wasn’t there to feed their unbelief;
Too sloppy, they’d in custom unfind hints.
And such became Miss Stein, a ph‘lospheress,
Who, trapped in chaos ‘twixt the “Death of God”
And then the finding of the new, searched
With her Phenomenologicer’s Rod.
So ends her quest: she’s found This God Who’s New:
‘Tis Christ, the Only God she’d always knew.

An Apology

Sorry about those Chinese comments. I had no clue what they were saying, so I was allowing them to stay. Then I clicked on one, and a screen came up that said that what it linked to was filtered for content reasons. Which means the linked-to site was REALLY BAD!!!!! I hope that nobody was scandalized by that.
