“Rhythm, in music is the placement of sounds in time. In its most gene-ral sense, rhythm (Greek rhythmos, derived from rhein, ‘to flow’) is an  ordered alternation of contrasting elements. The notion of rhythm also occurs in other arts (e.g., poetry, painting, sculpture, and architecture) as well as in nature (e.g., biological rhythms).

This entanglement is about rhythm.
