“The composer while creating any work of lasting value stands face to face with the Eternal Energy from which all life flows, and he draws on that infinite power.
The composer must sit in silence and wait for the direction from a force that is superior to his understanding. If he knows how to contact that power, he becomes the projector of the infinite and invisible into the world of the visible, or rather of the audible, in the composer’s case. In my opinion, a great composer is not so much the reflection of God, as has been claimed, but rather the expression of God, on this earth plane. In proportion as he grasps this profound truth will he reveal to the visible, audible world the Divinity within.”
In sports and at the Olympics performance is measured. And in scientific medicine, too, measurements are conducted, is the medical performance measured.
And thanks to the use of the Medical Resonance Therapy Music® and the harmony laws of the microcosm of music today also achievement in music can be measured – at least its achievement regarding the areas of health and education.
There is no way around science – already Beethoven tells us this:
“Only art and science
raise man up to divinity.“
And about music as art he says:
do not only practice art,
but also penetrate into its interior;
it deserves it,
as only art and science
raise man up to divinity.”
And because natural science has prevailed, even though after many sacrifices, it will prevail also here, like in medicine.
And so, at last, against all odds, the legacy of our great classical composers becomes accessible to us in the age of science nonetheless, and we can participate in their divine revelations.
In this way, science helps man to the laws of harmony, which lie at the foundation of all of nature, and which hold the world together in its innermost, and which are able to bring about the leap in consciousness of which Albert Einstein speaks.
“On the path to discovery,
has little to do.
There is a leap in consciousness,
call it intuition
or whatever you like,
and the solution comes to you,
and you do not know
how and why.”
Today, in our modern age of great scientific achievements – and thus also in scientific medicine – we are able to objectively verify and scientifically examine the status quo of a musical practice and to prove by means of measurements, whether a musical performance or production is capable “to strike fire from the spirit of man” as Beethoven puts it – a fire that makes people more perceptive and healthier.
This fire is also called consciousness, and in this respect modern science is now able to verify the life promoting quality in the performance of music – and accordingly also that which has no inner life and also that what destroys life.
Thus, benefit and harm in music, in the individual, and in society can now be verified objectively with scientific means: through measurements.
