No not a pawn, but a product of your conditioning. You have to break out of it and figure stuff out like: why do you like these things?

I love music. Does that make me a pawn?
"Music" has such a wide spectrum, from the highest master peices that resonate with the highest celestial orders to the lowest forms of so-called music that contains semi-rythmic grunting that passes for "singing" and generated by machines that does nothing but smash discordant notes from my next door neighbours into my living room wall [1]

The buggers even tried to manipulate music - look into Solfeggio frequencies, that seems to show that they changed music to stop it being in true harmony.

We like to count in 5's and 12's but the decimal system wrecks it. Our brains like analogue measures of time but digital clocks jar the sensibilities. The list goes on.

Everything you live with has been manipulated and has been kicked out of joint.

Porn is just another factor. Hey lets really kick man kind in the nuts - lets give him easy access to "gratification". Look at the stunts they have pulled through history - repression and its opposite. Covering up ankles - or even furniture that looks like ankles - to the kind of graphic base advertising seen earlier in this thread.

You are not a pawn. In fact you are a powerful and potent weapon of mass creation - and the f*ckers in charge know it, and they are using every trick in the book to keep you out of that loop.

A..

[1] Its an act people only an act. I am not an old fart. I am not an old fart. I am not an old fart... what was I saying?

I'm still not sure where you're coming from, Anchor.

Conditioning?

You know, I always believe in balance and that means not becoming addicted to stuff like music or video games, as well as any other substance.

Anchor, i have to disagree with painting classical music as inherently superior to popular music forms (jazz, rock, blues, country, hip-hop etc.)
There is 'good' and 'bad' music within all genres which is a totally subjective opinion based on an individuals personal taste.
One can also differentiate between innovators and followers and also between more commercial vs less etc.
In my experience the only 2 songs that truly made me want to puke were "You Light Up My Life" by Debbie Boone and "Achy-Breaky Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus.
As far as 'equal temperament' @ A=440 tuning a piano player would have to either re-tune his piano or have multiple pianos to switch keys in 'just temperament'.

I agree, I didn't actually say or mean that but my flippancy might have implied this meaning. Music is interesting because it is all about tuning in the real physical sense and not just the metaphysical sense. It is a harder one to categorize - but it is also at the same time a target rich environment for the manipulators.

I can sing a song about "shooting my bitch up", and it's only a song right - so that's ok is it? Modern music is often accompanied by video's that often border on (or actually are) pornographic. Lets get Dirrty eh?

HJ: My point is that your judgment about what are good and bad things to do is conditioned. You can learn to like (or dislike) things - ultimately it is a matter of consciousness tuning.

The problem with some of the "Entertainment" that is available today is that it leads to compulsive behaviors, consume your time, and distracts you from the "now", the truth of the moment and plugged well in to the "matrix" into which we have descended - led along in a way that avoids us realizing it by master tricksters.

Saying - its all about balance is somewhat correct in my view - but it is also about not making excuses for doing the escape work

Its all about your choice and your responsibility for that choice.

To be fair, a lot of the music I listen to nowadays has classical tendencies, even if it's rooted more in sub-genres of Metal music. The stuff I've been hearing recently is beautiful and some bands even seem to be in tune with spritual changes, etc.

I do not consider these things to be an "escape".

What good is life if you can't appreciate each lifetime for what it is?

Completely agree - and me too!

None. But there is more to it than just that.

If you can define why you like something that would be interesting.

Good point Brinty.

Because it is so pleasurable reminds me of alcohol, where if one drink is fun, then 6 must be a blast. And what is the purpose of alcohol? To me it is poison in pretty bottles and I've had my share of it in the distant past.

The question I have is...has a survey been done on how many men (or women) watch porn only while under the influence of alcohol or other mind altering drugs compared to how many watch porn totally sober and is feeling quilty associated with inebriation?

Oh that's about the solfeggio frequencies thing and the 'conspiracy' that standard modern western tuning is somehow less in tune,
which is true in that if you tune an instrument to play perfectly in one key it will play in other keys badly so equal temperament
is a compromise tuning that plays all keys very well instead of one key impeccably perfect.
Wikipedia has excellent (albeit highly technical) info on this, read the articles on A440, equal temperament, tuning etc
(they all link to each other and there is plenty other articles linked as well)
As far as lyrics that's free speech and sexy videos are marketing most of the time and art the rest.

Yes this is true, as tuning to A 417 from A 440 is only a half-step down in the western solfeggio. So that means that if one is tuned to standard 440 then the note G# is 417 rather then A. I've tuned my guitar to A 417 because I enjoy playing in the A key, but now if I goto g# it will not be at 417 anymore. You win you lose. t

Here is a guy that has a total different view on the 528 frequencies, scroll down until you see the bold "The Real Meaning of 528Hz".
This guy has a ton of other stuff at his site as well. He reminds me of 777 in a lot of ways. A master at symbology.

Making music is a lot like making love. Watching others make music is almost pornographic. I like to watch.
