55

05:39

So the languageidioma of musicalmusical harmonyarmonía
is an absolutelyabsolutamente extraordinaryextraordinario one.

56

327120

3293

El lenguaje de la armonía musical
es absolutamente extraordinario.

Es una forma de navegar
por los marcos emocionales de uno,

05:44

but withoutsin the need
to put things into wordspalabras,

58

332859

2166

pero sin la necesidad
de ponerlo en palabras,

05:47

and I think that,
as with manymuchos other languagesidiomas,

59

335026

2212

y creo que, como en muchos otros idiomas,

05:49

it doesn't matterimportar how much
you know about a languageidioma.

60

337263

2456

no importa cuánto sabes sobre un idioma.

05:51

It doesn't matterimportar
how manymuchos wordspalabras you can say,

61

339720

2136

No importa cuántas palabras puedas decir,

05:53

how manymuchos phrasesfrases you know.

62

341880

1296

cuantas frases conoces.

Importan las elecciones
emocionales que haces con este lenguaje.

05:55

What mattersasuntos is the emotionalemocional choiceselecciones
you make with this languageidioma.

63

343200

3119

05:58

So I encouragealentar us to embraceabrazo
this ideaidea as a communitycomunidad,

64

346320

2524

Me animo a adoptar
esta idea como comunidad,

que es lo que con el tiempo
puede hacernos crecer hacia
