This passage about the epigenome, "the first manual to show how genes are orchestrated inside cells" (it appeared today in a science article in the Guardian)...

If the genetic code were a keyboard, the epigenome would be the pianist. Different chords become the various cell types, and all the notes have to be played perfectly to produce a healthy human being. Damage to the epigenome — the pattern of chemicals that controls our genes — has been linked to medical conditions as diverse as asthma, schizophrenia and cancer.
...this passage reminded me of Dr. Michio Kaku's description of String Theory:
So the particles we see in nature are musical notes; if the rubber bands vibrate one way, it’s called an electron; if it vibrates another way, it’s called a quark; if it vibrates another way, it’s called a neutrino. So we have a musical analogy. So, the melodies you could play on the string is the laws of chemistry; the harmonies of the string is what we call physics. The universe is a symphony of strings. And then the mind of God; the mind of God that so fascinated Einstein for the last 30 years of his life — the mind of God — we now have a candidate for it, believe it or not; it is cosmic music resonating through 11 dimensional hyperspace.


And also a passage from Gilles Delueze's short but brilliant essay "Spinoza and Us":

The important thing is to understand life, each living individuality, not as a form, or a development of each living individuality, but as a complex relation between differential velocities, between deceleration and acceleration of particles. A composition of speeds and slowness on a plane of immanence. In the same way, a musical form will depend on a complex relationship between speeds and slownesses of sound particles...

Biology, physics, and philosophy—it all comes down to music:
