To one who cannot see, it very well may be, despite the other technology which we have today.
But then again, as with most or everything, it just depends on the individual.

I also intuit that it, music, IS capable of soothing the savage beast, depending on the music.

Something like the first below. Amazingly haunting and profound to me.

But would a savage beast actually be soothed by something like it?

I wonder what the below would do to the savage beast. Ah, just listen to it and to those wolves. Stirs my celtic blood indeed.

No, I am not calling the wolf savage. We humans are the savages.

I wonder if something within our ancestral genes resonates to particular music from that country.

I could not honestly say what is the best to me - music or books. It just depends on what you resonate to and on "where you live at your core".
But if I had to say something, it would be the music depending on which...mostly classical and slow jazz.

If you do not want your heart broken, do not listen or watch the below...

Oh, the Wolf! :sad-teareye: :sad-teareye: :sad-teareye: :sad-teareye:

Music certainly opens the doors of perception.

On my bucket list is to someday hug a wolf.
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

It depends on what music it is, where and when it is played, how all those circumstances are ... and so on and so forth.

What music should be played where and when according to your taste in music?
How should the appropriate circumstances be according to your taste in music?

Joseph, the mud gives way to coral somewhere.
And the hours of light they last and last.
We'll see no hostile flag there from craft unknown.
We will have grown free from sighing.

Music affects the soul.

Plato wrote:
    Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.

      They likely used this rock music:



      Interestingly, islamic terrorists do not fight against the fascistic terror state Israel like the Palestinians do. Almost all Palestinians are shiites, almost all islamic terrorists are sunnis. It is well known that shiites and sunnis are enemies too. Who supports the Palestinians? Who supports the islamic terrorists?

      You're not a fan of Pink Freud?
      "Let's keep the debate about poor people in the US specifically. It's the land of opportunity. So everyone has an opportunity. That means everyone can get money. So some people who don't have it just aren't using thier opportunities, and then out of those who are using them, then most squander what they gain through poor choices, which keeps them poor. It's no one else's fault. The end."

      In a subjunctive frame of mind, music is best for me because it allows me to experience an emotional intensity that, in some respects, is greater than the emotions I feel in regard to the experiences I have "in reality".

      And that is because "in reality" [often enough] as soon as I feel something, something else will happen that prompts me to question what I feel, to think about it, to doubt it.

      With music the intense feelings can be sustained simply by listening to the music itself.

      Or, as Emil Cioran once put it:

      "If everything is a lie, is illusory, then music itself is a lie, but the superb lie.....As long as you listen to it, you have the feeling that it is the whole universe, that everything ceases to exist, there is only music. But then when you stop listening, you fall back into time and wonder, 'well, what is it? What state was I in?' You had felt it was everything, and then it all disappeared."
      He was like a man who wanted to change all; and could not; so burned with his impotence; and had only me, an infinitely small microcosm to convert or detest. John Fowles
