Music at times is more like perfume than mathematics.
On a grassroots level we say that man can touch more than he can grasp.
The wise man knows how to run his life so that contemplation is Possible.
It is right that we be concerned with the scientific probity of metaphysics.
Contemporary thinkers would say that man is continuously transcending himself.
Contemplation and wisdom are highest achievements and man is not totally at home with them.
But a science is exact to the extent that its method measures up to and is adequate to its object.
But however measurable, there is much more life in music than mathematics or logic ever dreamed of.
The dynamic element in my philosophy, taken as a whole, can be seen as an obstinate and untiring battle against the spirit of abstraction.
