Non-Coordination of the Tools of Cognition in the Various Musical Force-Fields
Fundamental Source of Errors in the Process of Gaining Knowledge in Music
The Musical Way of Destruction
Heat and Cold in Music
lower levels of music our tools of cognition, feeling and understanding, are
enlivened only to a small degree. This results in a correspondingly inferior
musical knowledge which in accordance with its low level of energy is associated
with only a weak doubt.
The deeper, however, we fathom the depth of the musical meaning, and the more our feeling and understanding activate their inherent powers of cognition during our process of gaining knowledge in music, the more these tools of cognition begin to clash in our intellect-space if the absolute sound-substance is not enlivened, or not enlivened proportionately to the depth of the process of cognition like two rivers that flow against each other, the one permanently producing heat, the other permanently producing cold.
the phenomenon of doubt has different impact in different force-fields of
Thus, a listener but a would-be composer as well may virtually exhaust himself from inner doubts if his mind, his intellect, his feeling and understanding, and his sense of hearing are not enlivened collectively on the level of the absolute sound- substance.
such a case music may actually have a demoralizing effect on the listener
and may truly frustrate him.
Vandalism in the wake of beat and pop concerts is the striking evidence of such symptoms of frustration.
Far worse, however, is the effect which the frustration has that results from the consumption of shallow decrepit entertainment music it leads to giving up the quest for the meaning of our life, i.e. to giving up the higher destination of our human life.
