    I agree there are many things, such as agriculture, that would benefit from less interference from humans. And it is true that many illnesses are caused by an unnatural way of life. But it's too simplistic to apply this idea to everything. Children are not just educated 'so they can get along', although it sometimes seems that way. They are educated so they can think for themselves. (For example reading, analysing and commenting on philosophies they find on the net!) And I feel that a musical education can only have a positive effect on someone, making it EASIER for them to hear the beauty and music in the sounds of nature. It surely would not stop them. I don't think human culture is as purely destructive as it is suggested here.
