"Quinque sunt fratres, duo sunt barbati, duo sine barba nati, unus e quinque non habet barbam utrinque." translated : 5 brothers exist : 2 with a beard, 2 without, and 1 with a beard on one side
.Albertus Magnus' riddle about the 5 petals of the rose seems to be the main topic on McLaughlin's "Visions of the Emerald Beyond". Most of the titles are counted in a metre of 5 beats. That could be the reason why we see a big rose on the backside of the record envelope. Another great german scholar - Leibniz- said that while listening to music the human soul is calculating without knowing that it is calculating ( Musica est exercitium arithmeticae occultum nescientis se numerare animi ) In western music tradition the relationship between rhythm and mathematics had always been dulled and confused since the priest Sebastian Virdung stated that playing drums comes from the devil because it is too loud and bad for prayers or meditations (in his book "die musica getutscht" 1511 ).
Mahavishnu's music with its spiritual awareness is the best counter-example. Sensuality and logic meet one another.
