Do people here watch music videos?

I think a lot of music videos have a "daydreamish" quality - fuzzy, fragmented, disconnected.

"1. Yes, or do work that doesn't require too much thinking. 2. The daydream fades, new thoughts come up. 3. The music can inspire to focus on something particular. Without music there is room for deeper thoughts but there can be more chaos…"

Music: Connection and Dis-Connection

I have written a new blog post on my music blog where I attempt to clarify my understanding of how (and why) music acts on daydreams.The full post is at http://whatismusic.info/blog/MusicTheThirdReality.html, but I can summarize the essential points that would be of most interest to all the day-dreamers here:Music is like an alternative reality that causes us to have a "special connection" to it. (Music is a mutated copy of…See More

The reason I wanted to join the "Wild Minds" network is because I am interested in ... Music.



Music is one of the fundamental unsolved mysteries of human nature. We don't know what music is, and we don't know why it exists.



Our knowledge of the existence of music is entirely subjective. The only way to know if a given sequence of sounds is musical…
