I concluded that since I did not find in myself any good reason for justifying this predilection and for regarding it as natural, 1ought [not] to take it as the principle of my research.. [and]. that 1 would not encounter it within Rameau and his successors (CDC-4) 69. myself and I abandoned the pleasant.. for fear that they wodd engulf me in some system which would perhaps be my own, but which would not at all be that of nature..

Everything is related to this first and fundamental sound. From its division d intervals are generated and these intervals are such only with respect to this first sound.. We must conclude.. [an d] that, as the source is itself perfect and is the source of both consonances and dissonances, it cannot be regarded as dissonant.
