Space-Awareness and Space-Feeling as Components of Knowledge

Potential and Kinetic Energy in the Musical Sound-Space

 



"Static" and "Dynamic" Experience of Space

 



The Musical Interplay of Feeling and Understanding

The Two Ways of Experiencing Space

Space-awareness and space-feeling are components of knowledge which are experienced from the level of the mind and which are therefore not at all directly related to any aspect of the environment.

The distance of things separated in time or space corresponds to the phenomenon of potential energy in nature and creates the space-awareness of the understanding. The change of the distance between things separated in time or space corresponds to the phenomenon of kinetic energy in nature; it predominantly stimulates the feeling, and from the feeling level it generates the experience of space through the senses.

Thus, we distinguish two kinds of spatial experience: the "static" experience of space through the analytical understanding and the "dynamic" experience of space through the synthesizing feeling.
When listening to music, these two phenomena of spatial experience always appear together and in mutual dependence; sometimes, the one dominates, and sometimes the other.

The interplay of feeling and understanding generated in this process is the sphere of influence of music.
