healthy humbling... if we accept the pleasure of music as coming from its
capability to mirror or represent some higher power or structure - or
however I could put that more open even - its not so amazing that we need
the interference of this power or structure to give sense or essence to
complete our effort of creating.
As long as our mind or the computer hold on what he thinks is correct,
there is no way to grow. If we do not temporarily disauthorize or even
disable our mind from its desire to completely direct our creation, the
higher power or structure might help us by disturbing our mind, introducing
errors, to show us the way.
It might be completely different, though...
