"When we're defining culture, it's often about how you can turn something that's not yours into your own. I always felt that Bach was my music — I lived my whole life living and experiencing this music almost every day. It's in my skin, it's in my bones, it's in my memory – it's in all my experiences. And I believe that until we stop becoming human, Bach's music is going to be continually listened to, because of the kind of understanding that he brings to human nature. It is one way that #cultureconnectsus.”

Neuroscientist Antonio Gardels says that "reason and science have given us many of the tools of human progress. But they did so largely prompted by homeostatic needs which really means, in human terms, prompted by emotions and feelings." Our unique ability to feel emotion not only sets us apart from other creatures, robots, and AI; it also connects us, determines the way that we have developed culture all over the world.
Read the article and tell us about a time when analysis and emotion intersected in your life.
