  1. Can music change the world, does it have healing properties, how important is it for day to day life?

    One recent scientific paper out of Harvard showed music therapy helped stroke patients regain speech. And other studies found music may improve heart and respiratory rates and blood pressure, as well as anxiety and pain in cancer and leukemia patients.
     
  2. Of course, music is one thing that can control emotions. I heard that when people are being converted to become gang members, they would listen to music that would make them angry. It would motivate them to kill, since they never killed before and had second thoughts. The music empowered them and shifted their emotion to do things they wouldn't do if they were calm. That is one example.
     
  3. Thats a interesting example that i was unaware of. Seen it in Zoolander but never thought it could be a reality. I jus find in amazing that something like music can affect us so much. Its not surprising as such just an interesting insight into the human mind an emotions.
