Hi Briffits,

I agree and that's what makes music just as mysterious death, if not more so!

Generally speaking, I think music reached its highest apogee, its highest point, in the 19th century. The culture of the 20th century became inundated with technology, electronic music and mass media and the fertile mind, has become less as common as it was in the 19th century. Great music is designed ultimately to reach up to a higher level, so that we become transfigured... music has the potential to change our lives!

In the 20th century, if one examines the popular culture, mankind has forgotten who it is more so than in previous times. Hormones ruin everything and it certainly holds us down. We are of the musical essence but we've become so enamoured of our physical existence, we've forgotten who we are to the extent it's hard for us to get back to a higher awareness and that's a lesson not lost on those that would seek to control and subjugate us and keep us in what we could call, a modestly comfortable level, in terms of most peoples' lifestyle. They like the attachments of the body and all things physical and we are ever more primitive, it would seem, if we examine popular culture, the entertainment, the music, the media - it's not exactly reaching for higher ideals. It's reaching for reproduction in many different guises. Music should elevate people instead of bringing them to a lower state!

regards
Rob
