    I've never physically experienced music like you say. That sounds intense. I experience emotions from music, but not nearly as intensely as you describe. I play the piano, but I am no good at writing music. I don't know how people do it, it seems like there's some flow you get into and I can't get there. But I know what you mean about using music to organize your thoughts, playing music helps to quiet my mind.

    Yesterday I have decided to continue with my music, I was recording last night and found it to be very soothing,(I missed the feeling)I guess I can consider guitar playing as form of therapy, or should I say "string therapy" as it helps me to organize my thoughts when they are all scattered about. When I'm playing or writing music, nothing else compares to the feeling of manipulating vibrations, it shakes me right down to the soul, gets the blood and dopamine flowing, and the visualizations of the tones are euphoric,(I see colours, numbers, or shapes when I play or hear music)and I love it!... How often do you physically experience music?

    Everyone notices the effect music has on people, whether it's hard rock or classical, it's what drives emotions. These emotions are varied by which ever frequency a specific song, or music genre is tuned to......[more to come.]
    ... Classical music; it has a very beautiful, and complex structure within it, but it is also quite chaotic, it's a classic example of a genuine duality. It's the competition between the frequencies that makes classical music so unique, it purely is a physical manipulation of energy through manifestation/duplication/conversion. I imagine what it would be like in a composers head, from a digital stand point.

    I think that unconsciously, our brains have the ability to convert digital information into analog information(although some researchers speculate that our brains are both digital, and analog at the same time). To recall the pitch of an "A" from memory would be digitally stored information, and playing that "A" on an instrument would be analog information, just like how light particles are digital, which become analog by observation, and physical manifestation... Does that make any sense?

    So, it would be sensible to speculate that classical music is a physical, or analog representation of the frequencies from within the brain, musically.

    The commonality with classical music and our brain is how intrinsic the duality is between them, and like our brain, music is the manipulation of time, and energy. You need digital chaos, in order, to create analogous harmony.

    Thoughts?

    How does the duality of chaos and harmony in music affect human emotion?

    Music, Emotion and the Brain..."The sweet, passionate melody captivated his heart from the first note; it was full of radiance, full of the tender throbbing of inspiration and happiness and beauty, continually growing and melting away; it rumoured of everything on earth that is dear and secret and sacred to mankind; it breathed of immortal sadness and it departed from the earth to die in the heavens." (10)

    The tremendous ability that music has to affect and manipulate emotions and the brain is undeniable, and yet largely inexplicable. Very little serious research had gone into the mechanism behind music's ability to physically influence the brain until relatively recently, and even now very little is known about the neurological effects of music. The fields of music and biology are generally seen as mutually exclusive, and to find a Neurobiologist also proficient in music is not very common. However, some do exist, and partly as a result of their research some questions about the biology of music have been answered. I will attempt to summarize some of the research that has been done on music and the brain in recent years. I will focus in particular on music's ability to produce emotional responses in the brain...
    Because we are vibration and frequency based organisms(carbon is a manifestation of digital to analog).

    De-tuning each string on a guitar to random tunings could be a good example of what happens to human emotion during a frequency change; the guitar, and strings "physically" do not change, but the now "slack" strings change the information being processed, likely resulting in an incomprehensible, and unpleasant sound which leads to dis-satisfaction. With the guitar tuned properly, it would match up with the brains unconsciously organized understanding of frequencies, or make one feel as if they're satisfied from "feeling the good vibes". High frequencies have more energy, and low frequencies have less.
