All members, all three thousand and six hundred,
new and old in this here digital Way Station,
most welcome.

If you feel like it, and have got a moment to spare:
add a considered, considerate comment
on someone else’s post.

You might also consider adding a post, that catalyzes
inquiry at the intersect of ecosystemics, economy
and eudaimonia.



from Srećko Horvat‘s radicality of love:


ancient hadith: ‘listening to music leads to discord, just as water leads to the growth of vegetation’.. khomeini: ‘music is like a drug, whoever acquires the habit can no longer devote himself to important activities.. we must completely eliminate it’.. surprisingly or not, it is lenin..  – who had a very similar stance toward music. everything from music to love – has to be suppressed if we want the revolution to succeed



Kid whose ‘Wow’ reaction to hearing Mozart went viral has been found and his story is incredible

“I can count on one hand the number of times that [he’s] spontaneously ever come out with some expression of how he’s feeling,”


on silence and music

via maria – aldous huxley – music at night –

From pure sensation to the intuition of beauty, from pleasure and pain to love and the mystical ecstasy and death — all the things that are fundamental, all the things that, to the human spirit, are most profoundly significant, can only be experienced, not expressed. The rest is always and everywhere silence.

After silence that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.

Why memories of music cannot be lost to Alzheimer’s and dementia #health #music (

If you’re especially into a piece of music, your brain does something called Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR), which feels to you like a tingling in your brain or scalp. It’s nature’s own little “buzz”, a natural reward, that is described by some as a “head orgasm”.

Turns out that ASMR is pretty special. According to a recently published study in The Journal of Prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease (catchy name!), the part of your brain responsible for ASMR doesn’t get lost to Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s tends to put people into layers of confusion, and the study confirms that music can sometimes actually lift people out of the Alzheimer’s haze and bring them back to (at least a semblance of) normality… if only for a short while
