We've Got The Beat

It's all about rhythm.
The beat of your heart. The function-cycle of life.
From the slow dance of stars through the void to the spin and tumble of atoms.
A guy named Higgs hypothesized the existence of a backbeat even deeper than the atomic mosh pit. Some folks in Switzerland found it, and now still other guys postulate a still deeper rhythm.
Someone will find that, too.
I wonder if anyone is looking for the harmony and melody?
If they are, is anyone working to bring it all together?
Not the skat/improvised jazz of religion, but a rational, measured song that we'll probably find we already know by heart. We just had to be reminded.
Something beyond, or perhaps beneath, a unified field theory.
I don't know.
What I do know is that even if you can't dance,that rhythm is part of you, and you're part of it.
It's in the beat of you heart, the drum of your fingers on the desktop, the tap of your foot.
It's all about rhythm.
