    When I listen to music, it REALLY helps me sink into another realm. I know this world is run'd by thee insatiable will. The mind allows the subjective person to, mentally, sink into the music; to the point where your whole body, both internal and external, is engaged in this sort of rhythmatic fervor and trance. Music has healing powers; it has the power to divulge and manifest certain repressed and ineffable emotions, and feelings which are embedded deep in the sub-conscious; by doing this, it enables the subject to feel a sense of calm or tranquility. Not only the sounds, but the words - Music needs this imperative balance. It's like the balance of body(sound) & mind(speech). Words and speech, with or without rhythmatic sound present, have the power to deeply immerse their intangible hand into one's core and hit the right spots, sort of like acupuncture - but, music is a creation of one will, for the appeasing of the will on two plateaus (mind & body), and not just the body - unlike acupuncture.

    When I'm in a bad mood or melancholy, all I need to do is put on some music... and zone out. Weed & Music = the best medicine!

  2. Music is a huuuuge influence on society; from the way people dress, as far as to how some people even think. music is also extremely manipulated nowadays maybe mainstream industries, making a young generation of kids listen so songs they label as "hot", songs they want them to listen, most of these songs with no meanings or stupidity (drake, niki minaj, ect.)

    In a way it seems pretty obvious now that mainstream is controlled to control, or better yet "dumb down" the youth.

    If a kids favorite artist is talking about poppin bottles, gettin bitches, slangin cane, ect., it influences the individual to become more susceptible to doing those things.

    However, I notice most people that listen to conscious artists, talking about true conflicts in the world, ect., are less prone to being brainwashed in a way to follow trends mindlessly because the mainstream tells you it's hot. I've never met a person who listens to these conscious musicians and loves mainstream media's hits like drake, yet, and most these people keep up to date with whats going on in the world around them and question the status quo.

    But I did notice those who are strictly devoted to mainstream (as i used to be long ago), are less conscious about world conflicts, and dont really know how to find music. I used to be that way when I only listened to the new radio hits long ago, cause I thought "it was cool" or some stupid shit. Not only did i not know how to find music, but i believed everything the media's news told me too.

    For some, music can be a mind opener, which the powers think is dangerous.
  3. wise words mister boats.:p
  4. wanted to rep u but I can't anymore haha I really enjoy your threads man :)
  5. ^Thanks man, but its cool, dont worry about it.
  6. I'd dedicated my life to music, and the use of ALL of it's properties in any way possible. It is my hope to explore and discover vast new uses, as well as how different progressions effect the listener, and what implications each variance in notes and harmony have.
  7. Fucking music sucks, I can't find any music good enough for anything like that to happen.
  8. I dont think they have music for deaf people.. lol jk:smoke:
  9. Haha I have a very picky taste. Even the music I do like, that shit never happens regardless of my level of sobriety.

  10. Maybe something will click for you. I went from not listening to music at all to becoming a person who can get absorbed and lost in it.

    Pot did it for me so I don't know what will do it for you.

    Music is a pretty powerful drug.

  11. what kind of music you listen to? who's your favorite artist/band
  12. I listen to a little bit of everything minus electronic, radio music (of today), and most hip-hop. It's hard for me to pinpoint a favorite, but right now I'm really into The Strokes.

  15. No matter what im pretty sure you'll always find other stuff you like. I dont listen to the new stuff yet i frequently get more music from time to time
  16. Music is the only universal language.
  17. Music means so much to me man. Allows me to get totally lost in the moment, and takes me to another place. Music takes us away from dwelling on thoughts, or thinking and being concerned with day to day affairs. It takes us to our natural state of relaxation, enjoyment, and being present. It stimulates our imagination. It touches our heart, helps us release and process old emotions, it stimulates our minds and inspires us with its words and feelings it evokes. It gives us something to relate to. It helps us lose ourselves.

    I love music, and I love creating it just as much. Few things bring me more joy than getting totally lost in the moment, expressing yourself to your fellow beings and evoking an experiencing of presence and connection, happiness in another person. Then getting that love reflected back in feedback and in a crowd applause. Nothing like it man. Music is truly special.

    Get high, relax your judgements and just listen to this with an open mind. Listen to the words, feel the cadence and the emotion and what is being said.

    I can get into the beautiful appreciation of almost any music because I just get totally immersed and lost in it and I just feel it. And it's so beautiful, given it's good or soulful music.
