RE: Music and the soul...
Universe is made up of vibrations. So when we vibrate, we are more in tune with the universe. Then our chemical dispensaries reward us for good behavior. No mystery, no soul. Tongue

I NEVER vibrate when I listen to Bach.

I just melt into a puddle! Tongue

What's a good behavior? I thought that there's no such thing in nature as right and wrong Consider

Harmony with the environment. There ain't no such thing as a soul, either, yet here we are flapping our gums about it. Big Grin

Maybe if we redefine soul to mean our existential harmony with the environment? Rolleyes

Certainly nothing eternal, but I do get good vibrations from time to time. Cool

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Good find! Exactly the kind of thing I was looking for. Wish they had a bit more to it, but it gives some interesting data as to how universal our interpretation of emotion is as it correlates with musical expression.
