A valide argument. Wel..At this point it necessarily will become abstract crazy talk. (Don’t worry, I like abstract crazy talk)
Emotions need to connect to a „when“ to manifest on an individual level just because they do not have an own „when“. To be exact, I think that everything needs a „when“ to be experienced.
For example almost everybody has experienced irrational fear. There is no need for fear but the fear is there and it connects to a situation. The time-related triggers are individualistic. The same situation can cause joy to one person and pain to one person and fear to another. If we take the univesal magnetism into account, timeless emotions (-) connect to time-bound situations (+) to be „born“ and cause a physical effect, so to say.
So I agree with fra Nefastos that music is of direction-giving or structuring kind with the difference that I interpreted emotions to be „timeless“ by themselves instead of following an individual, psychic time. Still I find the idea of psychic time or spirit time interesting but I did not decide yet if it makes sense to me.
Yes, basically it's always the contrast that causes existence. Every note is a rhythm in itself, i.e. a wave that only manifests itself because it has a repeating interval of amplitude and linear time.Insanus wrote: ↑Tue Apr 14, 2020 2:19 pm I'm not convinced there would be emotion without relationship to something: how could we experience anything new (excluding perhaps some always/new life experience, fresh silence or something) with no memory at all to compare it to? Maybe it's the same with first note of a musical piece. A musical chord is a structure and if we are nitpicky it could be called"rhythmic" because it vibrates..
