Just to say thank you for a truly inspiring discussion, and on so many fronts! And to Graham for providing the forum for it.
Having returned from being away in Scotland and Wales recently, (doing further in-depth research on Music and the Otherworld, for another book I am working on), I am sorry I was not here to read of these posts as they came in. However, having the sheer courage to do what you have done with this book, in addition to the important points it makes throughout (esp. in today's world), is as much of an accomplishment as any physical product on the shelves.
Truly, one is here reminded of one of Johann Valentin Andreae's comments in
*Die Chymische Hochzeit des Christian Rosencreutz* where he says,
"In his right hand, he held a golden trumpet." Yes, indeed -- you have! And thank you for sounding the call....
