The structure of phrases, sentences, paragraphs, stories, and interwoven stories of increasing length is dependent upon practice and upon rhythm. That practice and rhythm can come from speaking, reading, or both. And our patience with ourselves and our audience’s patience with our oratory, cannot diverge without either’s loss of context.

Hence our ability to remember songs, and the classic iambic pentameter (heartbeat: da DUM da DUM da DUM da DUM da DUM ), dactylic hexameter ( breath capacity: ssL – ssL – ssL – ssL – ssL – s or L).

In other words, our ability to produce computational sequences is assisted by rythms. And this ability vaguely corresponds to our intelligence.
