     The physics, acoustics, psychoacoustics, practice, composition, 
performance, perception, and art of music are in no way based on the 
Fibonacci series.
     For those who think it is, see Ambrose Bierce's definition of 'phrenology':
           "The science of picking the pocket through the scalp. It consists in
            locating and exploiting the organ that one is a dupe with."
