“Music, it is the universal language”

Oh, right. So that’s why in Star Trek all the alien races speak “music” then. Why do we speak English or French or Chinese when we could all be happily burbling along in the Esperanto that is music? Surely all those wars and “damage done by those people in power” that the politically naive TGU later bang on about would have been solved if we had all started speaking music. Or perhaps this is tosh. What they really meant was: Music is a universal concept. And one which equals crap.
