The reality of music


Why music? It may seem a strange question but in looking at the complex realities of the world around us, I have often wondered about the real purpose of the arts.  What is the reason for the human liking for drama, music, painting and sculpture etc? Are they just things that have developed over the years of ways to enjoy ourselves? Or is there a more complex evolutionary or big picture reason for their existence? How do they affect our reality? For me, the most interesting of these art forms with which to to pose the question is music.
