We already notice, with growing amazement, very striking improvements in such diverse things as high blood pressure, breathing, depth of sleep, overall cheerfulness and mental alertness, resilience against outside pressures, and in such a refined skill as playing a musical instrument.’ Professor Nicholas Tinbergen, Nobel Prize winner for medicine and physiology.
