This is excerpts from a text conversation I had with a friend. I'm only adding a few of my own points........................................ In Europe last year, the second biggest meme next to "Brexit" was "Heyye"(pronounced Hu-go) . A danish word meaning comfort. It is a concept being conveyed as a new cultural revolution particularly in the work place and how business is done. You see it some in the way google and amazon treats their employees. But it is representing a wider picture of home, work, life, all for the sake of comfort, happiness, and fulfillment for each individual life. As all needs are taken care of and continually inspired to be productive in a thoughtful way. Music would be a part of the furniture, the meal, the home, the art, the food, the inspirational medium, the daily connection and inclusion for people. As it is now, but in a more organic inclusive way with no price tag or manufactured fame to put false value on it. The organic impact of music's true purpose is not conveyed in digital reproduction. Analog was a stretch, but it still maintained some visceral impact. I think in about 20 years people will have stopped using digital reproduction for music. The interest is disappearing now because digital has reduced music to a less potent medium. Its a subtle thing but its happening. The huge devaluing of music reproduction is the beginning of the end. People are not good at talking about the visceral impact of music and are not good at talking about the lack of it either. People thought steve jobs was some kind of genius for introducing a tiny device which could download and store thousands of songs practically for free . In this glut, nobody mentioned that the quality of the sample rate is so one dimensional that just the basic information of the music is conveyed rather than the actual vibrational occurrences which make the most potent magic of music. After several generations have grown up listening in that format, the understanding, appreciation of the musical experience is no longer a valued or understood thing for a very large part of humanity. What I'm alluding to is a completely non capitalist value of music. It will be a reflection of quality of living, comfort, sharing of information, like great cooking, art, furniture in each home and places of business now run like beautiful homes for all content working inhabitants. My utopian ideal as the fall of capitalism begins and perhaps the digital revolution's dismantling of the system is the first step towards it.

The metaphor in Music-everything is vibrating, everything has rhythm and a tone. 
I don’t speak Japanese but I have heard that in all the dialects of the Japanese language there are no nouns. Only verbs. This refers to all objects as being in motion.  Or more accu...
