9. Steps Toward Music

  • Receptor 1: Fully compatible binding (consonant intervals)

  • Receptor 2: Incompatible binding (dissonant intervals)

Receptor 2 changes its two tones to become consonant with the original ligand tone which attempted to bind to it.
Once multiple receptors have achieved full compatibility, a larger and more complex consonant chord is achieved, which gives way to an improvisation- something spontaneous, just as a cell may spontaneously be able to change its behavioral abilities.
