Abstract

This final chapter describes future perspectives of music as a comprising cultural achievement of humans. We discuss the interconnectedness of music with mathematics and physics from Pythagoras to String Theory and its global human presence. This transcends specific fields of knowledge in its synthetical force that unifies distant fields of knowledge and action in concrete and abstract realms.
