Perhaps all the moralism, and all the self sanctified enlightenment is in its way the biggest fuel for the evils they themselves deride?
Song lyrics and poems are often a good blend of heart and head. Yes, and we perceive this person to sing well even when their voice is somewhat strange and even mildly irritating.
What about singing without words? That is in many ways the most expressive.
Your brain has two broad channels. Two general domains of operation. You have the top down channel which is how you make your self do things, establish voluntary control over your own actions. And you have what they call the bottom up channel which is how you become aware of your physical and perhaps also emotional states, and how you are capable of having reflexive reactions based on stimuli you “haven’t processed”. Flinching because of something you see but “didn’t really see”. You can react well before comprehension, but these both join at the throat chakra. Just as you can give an eloquent speech, you can give a startled yelp. Just as you can give voice to an angry rant, you can also be unable to voice anything other than moans of passion.
We often catch ourselves humming. Yes. So whether you think you are talking to yourself, you actually are and all the time, and it isn’t always your head talking. That humming is heart “speech”. Music is just the heart and head joining. In fact, even wordless singing has the head in it. The brain adds rhythm and structure. It likes things to be ordered, and it likes to work with the heart if we let it. This is why music is so good for cognition. Music is so general in our brains as to pretty much permeate all centers.
They say you learn better with music on. They say and have studied it. The studies back it up with the exception of the music being emotionally agitating. Though they can’t prescribe specific forms of music effectively, because for me heavy metal music is soothing and for other people its upsetting.
I have a friend who gets migraines and she says metal helps her as well. Like a mental deep pressure massage
