My Thoughts on Emotion as a Communication System Now Depicted in Physical Characters (Emoji), and, The Eternal Nature of Music and Sound
I THINK that the depiction of emotion by characters which is now here…called emoji… is understandable in an instant, akin to telepathy but not yet “fully” out there…I suspect what you see is beta….I’m one to imagine that there is a complete and fully fledged language behind emoji..but yet to be revealed……….So let us all go back to babel…..there was one language which was transliterated supposedly overnight…but just imagine if you had the map/cipher/scroll/key with which the original languages were re arranged…….and the tone in which they were meant to sound……you’ve hit the jackpot, the holy grail of spoken communication, but in emoji, this missing link is cut out altogether for emotions are ubiquitous and universal…… hence communication via emoticons is a close abstraction of the one original language…emoji cannot be spoken..it can only be understood.
I think communication via sound trumps written words any day……..that is why tone and intonation probably define music much more than is consciously known….. the song is beautiful…any further abstractions will manifest magic….so lets enjoy and appreciate a great work of artistry and sound…..I think the mystery of music is this…..once created it is eternal….once performed it becomes doubly so..you cannot destroy a song!! ..for music is an alchemical transformation of energy via spirit into sound….and do you know where music goes after its been performed?…..were the first acts of creation not accomplished through words and the power of sounds? Our words and our sounds resonate throughout all eternity!!…And therefore we must appreciate the gift which is speech …and the art which is music as divine and profound…..and eternal!!
