… there was the ancient society of Pythagoreans, for whom

not only was the earth spherical, but it is not the centre of the universe. The earth and the planets revolve — along with the sun — round the central fire or “hearth of the Universe” (which is identified with the number One). *

The musicians were always a step ahead. But they are not always listened to.
