Who installed that pentatonic scale in me?

“…common grace precedes all that is good and true that we still see in fallen man. The light still shines in the darkness. The Spirit of God lives and works in everything that has been created. Therefore there still remain in man certain traces of the image of God. There is still intellect and reason; all kinds of natural gifts are still present in him. Man still has a feeling and an impression of divinity, a seed of religion. Reason is a priceless gift. Philosophy is an admirable gift from God. Music is also a gift of God. Arts and sciences are good, profitable, and of high value. … Through the doctrine of common grace the Reformed have, on the one hand, maintained the specific and absolute character of the Christian religion, but on the other hand they have been second to none in their appreciation for whatever of the good and beautiful is still being given by God to sinful human beings.”

—Herman Bavinck, De Algemeene Genade (Eerdmans, 1922), p. 17. (bold=mine)

Watch and listen as a crowd expresses the pentatonic scale with natural unison and ask yourself: Who embedded that scale into each of us?
