May not Music be described as the Mathematic of Sense, Mathematics as the Music of reason? The soul of each the same! Thus the musician feels Mathematic, the mathematician thinks Music, --- Music the dream, Mathematic the working life, --- each to receive its consummation from the other.
James Joseph Sylvester, 1865
