Eight Dynamics : The division of the basic
dynamic urge of life "to Survive", into eight equally important "sub"
dynamics of survival. Thus a technique for assessing the rightness wrongness ratio of an
the same or like another - through understanding. An individual's objective and insightful
awareness of the feelings and behaviour of another person.
Unpleasant or negative communication or intentions.
Ethics : Rationality
of action supporting the highest level of survival across the greatest number of
dynamics. That which is enforced only by oneself. One's honour, good reason, and the intention toward
implementation of optimum solutions along the eight dynamics.
Experience: to immerse oneself in
Fixed Medium :
intervening consistent substance through which something else is transmitted or carried
the measurement of the number of
times that a repeated event occurs per unit
the abilty to and the willingness to experience mass or pressure... The
satisfaction or pleasure degree gained from an Experience - such as Music. Havingness can
be related to the gift of the units of
Time in a piece of music.
Idea : A
portrait-of-beingness or understanding-containing experience
or visualised experience or conceptualisation. A unique
from a being which to persist is duplicated and perhaps received by another or other Beings
who append it to time in a universe where the experience is converting into Havingness.
Idiosyncrasy : Characteristics usually of a behavioural or
functional nature, peculiar to something. They may be odd or just usual in relation to
Keyboard : Originally
the word referred to one or more rows of keys that an operator would use to make something
work, such as a typewriter, piano keyboard or computer keyboard. The word referred to just
the board of keys.
When synthesiser's appeared; devises
that consisted of electronic parts that produced musical sounds; they were operated by
buttons and switches. Later a more familiar piano style arrangement of keys formed
the new generation of operating interfaces; (key-boards). The new instruments
evolved into a powered device that held the keys and the electronics in one unit, that was
responsive to a musician's fingertips. Thus the synthesiser was truly born.
The "cool" term
"keyboard" modestly referred to the musician's possession of advanced
electronics that looked like a real musical instrument and cost "the earth". As
everything in the musical world evolves in the direction of what is "cool", a
variety of terms at different times have evolved referring to objects, functions and
activities in the world of music.
A piano with wire strings and note
hammers is not producing sounds electronically, and is referred to as an acoustic
instrument, not a keyboard or sequencer. A piano is referred to in "cool" terms
Thus a keyboard is usually compact
musical device that produces musical sound with electronics.
: To disengage. To move away from the influence of something
or an influence ceases to have power.
From the word "kind", of which there are many
derivatives... nouns, verbs and adjectives etc. A mostly ignored word of the English
language in modern times, It is curious that something so precious yet so ignored, is
defined in so many variations. In practice, in these last days - in "1st world
countries", kindness is possibly regarded as a sign of weakness or "a soft

would, at his time, have great difficulty in understanding the "whys" and
"wherefores" regarding the subject of kindness. Examples of it are rarely seen
in common practice throughout "developed" countries.
likeness, it is a reference to behaviour and attitude. It is somewhat difficult for some
to contemplate "kindness" as it restimulates instances of the lack of it in
their own lives and makes it a barely tolerable state of mind or mode of thought. It
is not a source of sensual gratification in some societies too and could barely be found
here to illustrate the point.
It is about the perception of the wellbeing
of another without expectation of reward or reciprocation. Further treatise on the topic
can be found
Life Source : A source that animates matter capable
of animation - ie Lambda. Organic matter is Lambda. "Life" has been
regarded in the last hundred years or so as biological activity,
which is the evidence of the presence of life force -
erroneously regarded as merely bio-chemical activity -whereas,
biochemical activity is only possible where life force or theta is
connected with the bio chemical's activity.
themselves do not imply bio-logical activity. Dead bio-chemicals
cannot act as bio-logical (living material) but as chemical activity
which is more related to the valences of elements. Live material
contains "Life Energy", not just bio-chemical activity. Live
material is alive and dead material is chemical or bio-chemical, the
operations of which depend on a "lower order" of Theta Commandment
or Valence - though biological and biochemical activity depend on a
higher order of Theta Commandment than MEST, where Theta Commandment
is as Dogma or Law.
Each time I convert a WAV file to an MP3 it means I am
compressing or more accurately, removing "certain amounts of" the wav...
When joining the dots of a picture
with lots of dots, you can practically make out what the picture is before you start to do
the joining. But if you take one with lots of dots, remove some and give it to someone to
do, you have made it harder for them to see the picture. If you remove a lot of dots it
might be near impossible till the dots that are there, are joined up.
A sound wave or *.wav is the same.
Bits are removed so that the file is reduced to say a 192 kilobits per second file. Even
less is a 32kbps file. There is a point different for each listener, where
one can detect that where "so much" is removed, the
quality of the music, to the ear, suffers.

Stave. Each line and the
space above or below the lines of the Stave, represent the specific pitch of a note or
sound. The appearance of a written symbol describes the duration of the note or sound, or
the duration of the absence of sound. That is.. Some symbols represent what is to be heard
while others indicate that no sound is to be heard. Other symbols
represent in what way the sound is to be heard.

Something is mechanical or of a
mechanism when it is or can be seen as or in a closed system and the process requires or
involves a sequence of events that can be repeated with the same outcomes.
A mechanical system can be under the
control of or maintained by a Being or divine source. Sometimes a system appears to be
maintained or controlled by a
theta source when it is not, or may
appear not to be when it is.... Sometimes a mechanical system is in control of or has a
hold on a theta source, and much suffering can be caused to the theta source if 'it' is
disregarded and the system is treated as purely mechanical.
: The physical characteristics of a musical instrument define the way
the instrument is handled or played and the nature of the sounds it can produce. Also it
sets the limits of what the range of possibilities for that instrument are.
For example a piano cannot produce a
sound like a flute. Tuning the piano in a particular way can produce some mimic of
familiar sounds... such as a "bell like" tone.
A trumpet has three keys that are
pressed to increase or decrease the actual length of tubing a 'wave' of vibrating air or
sound has to travel in order to produce a variation in the pitch of the note being
produced. The sound or voice made this way is very distinguishable from a sound produced
by a bow of hair being drawn over metal strings.
The variety of movements that can be
applied to any instrument has limits because of its structure, though some creative
musicians do try to stretch those limits, and the results can be fascinating or result in
a cacophony... sometimes damaging the instrument... with the exception that the sound of
this destruction is desired by the musician in producing his kind of music. (God forbid.)
In a wind instrument, the mouth is
controlled by the player to alter the "shape" of the notes, (timber, tone etc)
and a degree of that kind of action is called upon as a
necessity when moving from one note to another where there is a significant difference in
It is interesting the number of
physical variations that have been made down the centuries in constructing musical
instruments, and the kinds of music that has resulted from them. Some physical
characteristics of instruments produce sounds more appealing to some listeners than
others, and of course the music created on any one of them has its own appeal depending on
the listener.... and the player.

makes something move or act. Steam is the motive force or source of energy that drives a
steam train. Petrol drives a car. Pleasure (as a "goal") of various kinds
propels, drives or draws humans into all categories of actions. The reasons for any
doingness is the motivation for the doingness. (The goal is usually a Havingness.) It can
also be a reason for Being.
Music is an effect created on the common medium of "air" with a
view to using it as a base for transmitting sculptured sound and perceived with the ear.
The basic anatomy of sound can be described as a vibration; seen as a waveform. So the exercise of
artful communication through sound creates desired effects on a listener.
The most aesthetic music is a divine
creation in essence. It is the closest relative to the basic fabric of the physical
universe. It is a composition of differences and similarities in a sequence. In its least
aesthetic form, music is chaotic, discordant and ugly, and approximates the confusion of
mind necessary to accept it.
In its crudest form music is composed of a
wave that is no better than an ordinary noise. Speeding a piece of music of this level
till the waveform of the rhythm is visible produces an audible hum or buzz with
Note Pattern :
arrangement of notes in a time-frame without regard to their pitch. The note-duration and
note-volume are what make up the note-pattern.
adj: Not copied.
The first one. Unique from another or others like it which would manifest in a new unit of
time. vrb: originate; originating.
Original Communication :
first moment an "idea is felt, seen or heard" that reveals a conceptual
understanding of what, at first, is "a
portrait-of-beingness-containing-experience". Perhaps not of ones own, and in some
cases, usually not - as it is really a communication from a separate self; not necessarily
"higher". It is an expression of "divine experience" of a Beingness.
The expression is a flow of a Stillness or Image or Wave as/of music, art or beauty of a
different from a relay of a particle or idea. Bringing the idea into existence from the
Original Communication rather than getting it or copying it from another source.
Recognising it as an origination from the moment of creation into a universe context. This
is what comprises origination.
Origination of Music :
Is a translation of the
origination of a "portrait of Beingness-containing-experience" as a flow
of sound. Music of the highest order is a communion, while art is
a projection of the "Original Communication" with "intention to closest
emulation" in the communication, as "an image - in sound-waveform".
When I originate music I "feel
it-see it-hear it".. as I perform it while recording it. Thus the resultant recording
is the closest thing to the "original communication". Something is retained that
would be lost if I was to compose with
set of limits or measurements inside of which something can occur. The word is used mainly
when talking about measurements. Setting or defining a limit or restriction of
measurement. For example I have to operate within the limits of what the keyboard can do.
Outside of those limits is outside the parameters of the keyboard. If I want to record a
note or chord 48 parts of a beat long, I can set the duration of the event for a quaver,
which is half a beat long. Or I can make a note extend for 10 bars with
punch-in recording by setting what length it is to be, even though I
just plunk the note with a single short press on the keyboard. It is useful on a digital
instrument where a chord or note is to be added to a track where I want to start and
finish a note within a specific time parameter. There are volume parameters, duration
parameters, increasing or decreasing of volume over the span of a number of notes, such as
fade-out or fade-ins.
The five pointed star symbol. The original symbol of Christianity
till medieval times. It represents the 5 wounds of Christ : the
symbol of Christ the Saviour. The
Pentagram is the Morning Star of Venus, associated with Love and The
Return of the life giving Sun (son), Lucifer (sol) ....the Light of
the World. It represented the five virtues of the
medieval Knight : courtesy, generosity,
chivalry, piety and chastity. The 5 pointed star of the spirit,
earth, air, water and fire, enclosed within the circle of Eternal Spirit,
connects each point showing All things are Connected.
Physical Universe :
universe is the one you feel with another bit... you're body bit. It is a continuously
created closed system.... for Beings to
be DO-ing a lot
of HAVING. It is the universe of force and counter-force.
Trouble, resistance and pain occurs when one is intent on altering,
destroying or making vanish a universe not of ones own creation.
Force begets counter force. Asking for permission of the creator of
it, upon understanding the nature of it, for change or freedom in
relation to it, is the key way. Physical Universe does not mean it
is solid, only that it is bound by structure and "law"

Plus feature :
The addition of something as an upgrade.
The degree of being in
the "present time". The manifestation of the degree of one's actual level
or state of Having-ness and willingness to BE.
Punch-In Recording :
note by note. Recording one note or chord individually. A synthesiser can be set on record
much like a tape recorder, then by pressing the record button the instrument will record
the next note or chord with the
parameters that you set for it
the name given to the set-up in a synthesiser that records and 'plays back' the sequence
of notes as they were performed. The sequencer keeps the notes you have played in their
proper order and gives them back to you in that order. Notes can be
in if the synthesiser is equipped with that facility, but the usual way is to just
record as you play.
A taped record, doesn't allow the
sequence of notes to get jumbled up, as they are laid down on a
medium. To rearrange the sequence of notes you'd have to cut and rejoin the bits of
tape in a new sequence.
Computers are useful here in that a
note or a sequence of notes on the screen can be selected, and "cut and pasted"
in a new position. Then when the sequencer program plays the notes they will sound in the
new sequence. A bar or selection of bars can be repeated and the pitch of the notes
adjusted within that
: This is the name given to the facility in a synthesiser that allows
you to record the music as it is being played. "Real-time" is a term which
refers to the actual event of recording live, as different from recording music note by
note, such as writing it down or recording one note or chord individually.
Sequencers : This is a general name that is
used loosely to refer to electronic music keyboards, as much as the term
"keyboard" is used. However some keyboards do not have a

notes. Without a sequencer "on board" a

Some kind of channel :
is easy to mis-identify an "experience of a higher type" and get into so much
debate about what is really going on.
Illness or shock leaning to unconsciousness,
or the effect of poisons, etc., are the usual ways that most people experience a
"lower level of consciousness". But poisons, severe pain might create apparent
"higher states" of mind too. When something becomes a little unbearable,
one involuntarily tries to escape...
Music, art and literature created
while in those states may seem worthy especially to people who have experienced similar
things. But I believe "real art" arises when the actual "channel to the
Akashic state" is opened through self-determinism and inspiration.
Spiritual endeavour is what I'm
referring to. Prayer, meditation, admiration or any spiritual process that frees the
theta, opens the channel. "What opens the door allowing the opener
into the open?"
The Soul is the whole
person not including the physical aspects of the person. The
individual personality. The idea one has of one's Self, including the
quality of one's Being. See:
The most common
form of musical notation today is for notes to be written on a stave of 5 lines. The lines
and spaces within the five lines represent pitch of notes as does the spaces and any
"lines and spaces" above or below the stave.
The original stave was made up of 11
lines. The middle line was middle "C". It was called the Grand Stave, or C
stave. An artistic clef was drawn in at the beginning of each 11 line stave and as the
middle line was "middle C", it was called the "C" Clef.
Eventually it was decided that man was not going to evolve much
further, and that 10 fingers were our lot... that is... 5 fingers
only, on each of only two hands. So some bright spark made the
middle line into a dash which appeared on the paper when a note was
hung on it, and the top 5 lines were governed by a "treble" clef,
(right hand for the pianist), The lower 5 lines governed by a "base"
clef. (that left the left hand free for that lot)
Different clefs were used to
establish a stave of 5 lines from anywhere on the grand "c" clef stave for music
written for a specific instrument. A musician could identify which musical instrument the
music was intended for just by the type of clef it was written in. A few are:- the Alto
Clef, the Tenor Clef, the Soprano Clef and so on. So why not two 5 line staves for the
pianist, who has two hands.... Need I say more.... We won't go into the subject of
"the organists" using their feet, for example, to complicate
things here any further.... :)
