of music being associated with the most evolved and wholistic
of brain functions:
• Spatial IQ
Music lessons have been shown to improve child's performance
in school. After eight months of keyboard lessons, preschoolers
tested showed a 46% boost in their spatial IQ, which is
crucial for higher brain functions such as complex mathematics.
Frances Rauscher, Ph.D., Gordon Shaw, PhD, University of
California, Irvine. National Coalition for Music Education
Univ of California, Irvine, 36 people took standardized
intelligence tests after three 10 minute periods of Mozart.
Those who listened to Mozart's Sonata for Two Pianos (K448)
scored an average 119 - eight points higher than those who
listened to a relaxation tape and nine points higher than
those who listened to silence.
Mozart's music is quite complex and very patterned said
neurobiologist Frances H Rauscher, the study's lead author.
Rauscher said the complex music may "prime" the
brain for mathematics or other analytical work because it
triggers the same brain activity. "We predict that
music lacking complexity or which is repetitive may interfere
with rather than enhance abstract reasoning," the researchers
said in the journal Nature. UPI, Deseret News Oct 14 1993

of different kinds of music on mice
Suffolk, Va, high school student David Merrell finished
first in regional and state science fairs by demonstrating
the effects of music on lab mice. After the mice ran through
a maze in about 10 minutes, Merrell played classical music
to one group and heavy metal to another for 10 hours a day.
After three weeks, the mice exposed to classical music made
it through the maze in a minute and a half. The rock music
group took 30 minutes. Said Merrell: "I had to cut
my project short because all the hard-rock mice killed each
other. None of the classical mice did that."
Case histories on file with the National Commission on Music
Education uncover exciting correlation between the study
of music an such critical work-place performance factors
as self-esteem, self discipline, the ability to work in
groups and higher cognitive and analytical skill. Music
in schools, what little there is, is considered ancillary
to "real education" as something of a "curricular-izing".

Einstein Quotes on Music
"If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a
musician. I often think in music.

music .... I get most joy in life out of music."

driving force behind that intuition.
My discovery was the result of musical perception."

Quotes on Music
God is the Supreme Musician. It is He who is playing with
us, on us and in us.
We cannot separate God from His music. The universal Consciousness
is constantly being played by the Supreme Himself, and
is constantly growing into the Supreme Music.
for me the only way I can thank God for his ever-present
creation is to offer him a new music impressed of a beauty
which nobody had previously understood .... the music
we play is one long prayer, a message coming from God
Urantia Book 1955 p.
"Spirit melodies are not material sound waves but
spirit pulsations received by celestial personalities.
There is a vastness of range and a soul of expression,
as well as a grandeur of execution associated with the
melody of the spheres that are wholly beyond human comprehension"

association, is the one universal code of spirit communication.

angels and spirits. Harmony is the speech of Havona"
Oahspe: Revelation of Kosmon, 1881
(describing spaceships propelled by music)
"Here course the thousands of excursionists from
the measureless regions of the Huan lights, where are
to be seen a million varities of fire-ships, of sizes
ten miles across to the breadth of a world - in unceasing
trave in tens of thousands of directions, onward in theis
ways, every one a history of millions of years and thousands
of millions of souls and every soul rich in the knowledge
of thousands of worlds.
By Music Alone, some of these ships propelled, the vibratory
chords affording power in such high-skilled hands, and
the tunes changing according to the regions traversed.
Others, even by colors made in the waves of sound, went
forward carrying millions of angels(ethereans)."
Philosophers & Writers Quotes on Music
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the
inexpressible is music.
~Aldous Huxley, Music at Night and Other
Music gives a soul to the universe, wings
to the mind,
flight to the imagination, and life to everything.
immediately feel vibrations that thrill my whole being.
These are the Spirit illuminating the soul power within,
and in this exalted state, I see clearly what is obscure
in my ordinary moods: Then I feel capable of drawing inspiration
from above, as Beethoven did ... Straitway the ideas flow
in upon me, directly from God, and not only do I see distinct
themes in my mind's eye but they are clothed in the right
forms, harmonies and orchestration. Measure by measure,
the finished product is revealed to me when I am in those
rare, inspired moods.
The powers from which all truly great composers like Mozart,
Schubert, Bach and Beethoven drew their inspiration is
the same power that enabled Jesus to work his miracles.
It is the power that created our earth and the whole universe."

M. Abell, published by Philosophical Library
There is nothing in the world so
much like prayer as music is.
~William P. Merrill
Men profess to be lovers of music, but
for the most part they give no evidence in their opinions
and lives that they have heard it.
~Henry David Thoreau

it was below and before speech, and it is above and beyond
~Robert G. Ingersoll
Bach opens a vista to the universe.
After experiencing him, people feel there is meaning to
life after all.
Music is a higher revelation than all
wisdom and philosphy.
Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives,

~Ludwig van Beethoven
certain groups, like Albert Ayler, Cecil Taylor, Ornette
Coleman, and now my own group, there is a level of playing
which we try to reach which is the same thing that people
do when they do transcendental meditation and yoga.
They talk about "out of the body" experiences.
That's what this music is. It's chanting; it's meditation;
It's all these things. In order to play, something transcends.
Something happens with the physical, the spiritual and
the mental state in which they combine, and their energy
is turned free.
a cleansing experience which in a religion they would
say, "It's of another world." The state I'm
talking about even transcends emotions. It's a feeling
of being able to communicate with all living things."
