That music brings about feelings within you would require immense linear time to really begin to accurately transfer knowledge about via verbal communication but here is a nutshell version of which can be extrapolated from since music is my life (both figuratively and literally).
It begins with music being vibration (organized clusters of frequencies both of harmony and disharmony). All that IS is composed of an infinite scale of frequencies which are infinitely holographic (harmonics within harmonics ad infinitum). These frequencies are not linear waveforms but are holographic and infinitely multidimensional. As an example of how music is holographic, one need only move around a room while music is playing, or even in silence (“silence” is entirely a matter of perception, cf.: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4’33“). One can hear how, as one moves, one alters one’s angle of perception of the music, and in doing so, alters which waveforms are heard with the most amplification, but the music is still the music and it’s underlying consciousness input is still the same. From one source, one has access to an infinite variety of perceptions of that single source cluster of frequencies – the music.
Life arises as an infinite variety of frequency clusters in all dimensions and densities (loosely harmonic frequency clusters through to tightly knit frequency clusters, each with their own infinite subsets, and so on). The more dense something is, the more tightly clustered that part of the symphony of Totality is, at least in perception. When one ‘zooms in’ on something which is perceived as dense, it becomes much less dense the deeper one views, exactly like zooming in on a fractal.
Now that we see that music and Totality are essentially one in the same: Music in the common sense of the word is the resulting perceivable quantum flux pushed to the surface by pure consciousness data (pure organized frequency clusters). The ‘ideas’ or ‘information’ of which are communicated by the frequencies are also the frequencies themselves. Although, music in the common sense is a slower harmonic result of the quantum flux of the consciousness data it is pushed to the surface by.
When you make a piece of music, it exists because you feel something intensely on the level of consciousness. You feel a resonance with a particular part of Totality that is unveiled within you. You then feel an urge to bring that cluster-feeling into more widely available existence, i.e. you ‘program’ that feeling into the frequencies of your music so that others may share that feeling… so that they may gain their own holographic viewing angles of that feeling. The major thing about this though, is when the frequencies vibrate the listeners body and their interlaced transient body, those vibrations then resonate with whatever nameless feeling/consciousness-data it is that exists within them and their body generates an emotional response.
For instance, if there is a piece of music that makes your eyes wet and your heart soar, that is because the same frequencies in the music also exist within you and are resonating with each other leading up to physical stimulation and your body expresses the emotion as a result of the information being communicated via resonance.
Music is also a wonderful tool for ‘tuning’ your transient body and preventing any intruders on the extradimensional level. It resonates you to a degree that makes you impenetrable to a non-resonant force. It literally alters your entire vibrational cluster of frequencies and ‘cloaks’ you and you shall be undiscoverable. It’s not the only way to encrypt your transient body, but it is one of the easiest to accomplish.
Music allows people to unveil things which already exist in them, due to the holographic nature of Totality. Things of which they may never have the chance to unveil otherwise. You know how you’re listening to something wonderful and you want to speak about what you feel because of it, but when you try there are no words? This is because there are no words that could begin to describe what you feel. You can only communicate those feelings via music itself (or any form of direct consciousness to consciousness communication): direct resonance, bypassing interpretive languages and communicating directly in the absolute sense.
Your eyes see music (the perceptions caused by the specific range of frequencies that stimulate your retinas and visual cortex), you feel music when you touch something and can feel its texture and its varying degrees of push-back (resistance) to your push. Everything that has been, is and will be: It is all a symphony of energy. Its resonance has the power to create and tear apart galaxies, to create and to fold universes themselves. It has the power to protect… or: to simply allow you to feel something within you that you had never felt before because it was veiled and you had amnesia to it prior.
You are a symphony, within a symphony, within a symphony, and on and on to infinity.
