Technical Sources of Error in the Musical Analysis
Errors in the Tools of Cognition Propagating
Structural-Dynamic Deficiencies in the Uncreative Music Consumer
Uncritical Attitude of the Unenlivened Self-Awareness of the Listener
of the Neurophysiological Integration
Consequently, our inner sense of hearing, which now feels the surface of our mind, trying to glean from it the information on the sounding outer event, receives only part of the messages and yet believes firmly that it has received the complete message.
However, it can only hear as much as our mind has displayed.
Incomplete as it is, this message, which our inner sense of hearing has queried from our mind, is transferred to the understanding and to the feeling, which in turn pass the incomplete message on to our self-consciousness, together with the correspondingly incomplete results of their evaluation.
our self-awareness is uncreative and unlively from within, it knows nothing
of the natural potential of infinite diversity of the tone and of its immense,
innate flexibility, and therefore it does not expect in the first place that
the sound, perceived so incomplete from outside, is more flexible, more agile,
more sophisticated and structurally more dynamic in itself than it appears.
And owing to this ignorance, it settles for the lesser information which has been transmitted so mutilatedly from outside to inside.
So, we observe an uncritical attitude of the self-consciousness towards the musical events in the surroundings, or towards the musical influences respectively, and in this manner a non-critical listener becomes a typical music consumer.
