Hmmmm If one were to replace the word "music" in the posts, with the
word "medicine", would different shadows be thrown on the walls of our cave?

There is 'academic' medicine, and there are 'folk' medicines, and also
alternative medicines. Frequently they have with them theories that
explain the 'why' and 'how' of the ailment and its treatment.

Healing hands have their place with nuclear medicine. In one case,
western cultures are 'unable' (or unprepared?) to explain the power, in
the other, e=mc2.

Please continue. Where does music from the Carnatic Dance tradition fit?
Pibroch and the pipes anyone?
