...where music leads the way...
Spirit guiding Science
The philosophy behind Planet Roscoe is focused around the principle of taking direct personal responsibility for finding ways to live with one's fellow beings, in a manner that is open, inclusive, and mutually beneficially to all involved, with a positive impact on the resources of the environment, upon which we must all rely.
However, science itself cannot be relied upon alone to find mechanisms of achieving these aims. Indeed, the funding interest behind modern scientific research generally concerns itself with the need for profit for the shareholders, and bears little if any regard of the benefit and quality of its methodolgy, as relates to the synergistic connection between these methods and the spiritual health of the community, within the broader context of the health of the environment at large.
For this reason it might seem more appropriate to seek out ways in which spiritually motivated ideals may take a lead position, that science may be better guided in attempting to work at the vanguard of meeting the needs of the wholely diverse, yet delicately balanced, ecosystem upon which we must all rely.
Music is perhaps one of the more pure channels through which almost every form of life can be awakened to a deeper sense of value of connection, not only with our immediate environment and habitat, but with our fellow creatures; fellow creatures who each play an essential role in making the planet a functioning global biosphere.
Is it any accident that well-crafted and inspired music brings into play the many diverse elements of melody, rhythm, harmony, structure and form, and creates from these diverse elements an orchestrated whole, a symphony of sound, which is then able to promote an emotional, might one even say 'spiritual', response in the listener?
Might it not be argued that this process of music-making and its enjoyment, is analogous to the goal of celebrating the kaleidoscope combination of diversity in the culture of Man, and in Nature, as can be witnessed across the Planet, yet which diversity is only able to be unified through a mutually motivated, balanced and harmonious coexistence?
Indeed, if music is, in its simplest terms, defined as vibration communicated through a given medium, is it any coincidence that music and song are, after all, to be found naturally occurring, since time began, at every level throughout Creation?
