The view is very in line (though somewhat covertly) with the Chomskyan view. Chomsky would (I think) relabel (1) as 'recursion' (which he takes to underlie our linguistic and musical abilities) and (3) as the residue of Universal Grammar and would agree with the rest.

BLOGGER: I think this is a misreading of the account, especially about the first point. It is more about periodicity than recursion, but I want to get a fuller grasp of the concept myself before making many firm statements.
