Lots of interesting observations.
Now, if one makes the hypothesis of a supreme being ( influences from an unseen realm), would it make sense that music might be a powerful communication medium that would be utilized on an individual level, and to move entire cultures.
In the story line portion of my book, I describe meeting a young man who was intensely interested in music, but was deeply disturbed by what he described as "some kind of energy entering my body." I felt strongly impressed that music was an important calling for him, and he might be very influential in positively influencing people. He was all excited about the thought, called his parents to say that he found his purpose in life, then promptly collapsed and died! Sounds crazy, but I was there and it really happened just like that. It was not more than 5 minutes from the phone call to his collapse for no apparent physical reason. (the autopsy was undecisive). But the story is stranger than that. I didn't realize it at the time, but he was a boy genious who kept complex astrological notes in a container buried under the kitchen floor of his parent's home. Shortly before his last call, the young man called his parents and told them to dig up his notes and burn them because they might be dangerous if they got into the wrong hands!
The same year of these events, a powerful tune that I was very attracted to was released. The lyrics describe how music will be a "revelation" to the cultures of the world. Over the next several years, a number of coincidental events happened that resulted in publication of my book. I purchased the rights to use the lyrics from that music (The Calling, by Yes). Somehow, I think that my young friend is involved with music by operating within an unseen realm. Milo wrote:
