Is our brain designed for fourier analysis ?

I am 25 years old and have seen many ups and downs in life. Not just when it comes to mood, but also several other things like social life, interests in different subjects, the way I treat different aspects of life, etc.

Now more often than not, and as I grew , I have been able to sense sinusoidal ups and downs . Don't ask me which ones and how, but I have been able to also sense that the factors that I used to perceive when I was younger which have other forms of ups and downs like square, triangle, irregular, actually don't exist as themselves , but are further broken down to other factors that have proper sinusoidal ups and downs.

That leaves a question in mind : Does everything that happen actually just a combination of several different sinusoidal waves, which control "Macro" things in our life? Is it just that our brain actually keeps doing Fourier analysis ? Is our life actually God's "listening" process of some "music" that is being played? The music that is constituted by all those "ups and downs" that we feel ?

Another question: What are emotions? How do they affect ? Who induces "Interest"s in particular persons ?
