Hidden musical code found written into Plato's texts

"Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything."
"Music is the movement of sound to reach the soul for the education of its virtue."
Dr. Jay Kennedy of University of Manchester's Faculty of Life Sciences discovered that Plato had placed clusters of words related to music in his master work, which can be broken into 12 equal sections —  a pattern he suspected was related to the twelve notes of the Greek musical scale. If played out like a musical score — locations in the text associated with love or laughter played out with harmonic notes, while associations with war or death were marked with dissonant screeching sounds.
"It is a long and exciting story, but basically I cracked the code. I have shown rigorously that the books do contain codes and symbols and that unraveling them reveals the hidden philosophy of Plato."
"This is a true discovery, not simply reinterpretation," Kennedy insisted. "The result was amazing.He sent us a time capsule." Read more:Hidden musical code found written into Plato's texts
