So why do we only have Major and Minor keys?

What about diminished and augmented keys?

Hi; im not sure as whether there are musical pieces written in keys other than either major or minor; theoretically perhaps, it could be thought of a piece whith starting and ending chord being a diminished (or augmented) chord. It may be the case that there are so many (indeed, infinite) different ways to develope a piece starting either in a major or minor chord, that historically those keys had attracted the main effort by composers and music artists of all time, so to speak.
