Why is it, that in rhythmic patterns,in most styles of music, the time values are alway's a qaurtered? Why dont you get 5ths, 6ths, 7ths or even 11ths etc.
It would make for some interesting pattern's if you would put these different values played in succession, it would probably make the rhythm seem to slow down or speed up

I assume you are refering to time signatures 4/4 3/4 6/8 etc. You can and do have odd meters fo rtime signatures in classical, band and jazz music. Most popular music is dance orientd so odd meters would not be good for dancing. Also people like to be able to kind of go along the beat(pulse ) of a song and odd meters tend to disrupt that.
