It is my thesis that to be an effective mediator, one needs to be a musician at heart (if not in fact)-both a composer and performer. Music is what a mediator does-what a mediator makes. To design or perform well, a mediator must at least understand music composition and performance in all its aspects. A mediator has no choice in the matter, because music, in a broad sense, permeates nature and is considered to be the quintessential ingredient of all matter and energy-of everything or unthing in the universe. To understand how music relates to what he or she does, the mediator must first comprehend its pervasiveness and its power in nature. The mediator must become acquainted with the superstring theory of elementary particles, a theory that describes the basic building block of all matter, of nature itself.
