Why? and ten toes?
Because that is what works for us. Try to imagine your hand with less or more fingers and see if it would still work so well.
Octopuses don't have fingers at all, but they can grip things quite well. I've seen some amazing pictures. (Have to resist making a tentacle joke. Whew.)

Actually someone once asked Michael this precise question before, and I think the context of it was - if our universe is based on number 7, why do we have 5 fingers or five toes on each hand/foot. And they answered something along the line of "whatever works best".
I think this is a question for evolutionary biologists, not the MT.

That is helpful to playing an octave.
Ok, but toes are useless to me
As far as it being a question for evolutionary biologists, not the MT: well, my opinion is, Dave will delete it if he thinks it is OT. Other than that: if people want to discuss it, that's their choice.
