Incantare 09:33
~ Lyrics ~ [Dr. Jordan B Peterson] Because what music does is provide you with predictable forms. Multi-level predictable forms. That transform... just the right amount. And so music is a very representational art form. It says “this is what the universe is like.”. You know there is a dancing element to it. Repetitive and then cute little variations that sort of surprise and delight you. And you think “wow that’s so cool!”. And...it doesn’t matter how nihilistic you are. You know, music still infuses you with a sense of meaning. And that’s because it models meaning. That’s what it does. That’s why we love it. And you know, you can dance to it and that sort of symbolizes you putting yourself in harmony with these multiple layers of reality and positioning yourself properly. And you like that too, you know. You pay for it. “Oh boy I get to go dancing!”, you know, “Oh boy I get to listen to music!”. It’s like “what the hell are you doing listening to music - what good is that?!” Well, you think “that’s a stupid question, I don’t care about your dopey criticism - I’m going to listen to some music!”. There’s is no rational - there’s no rational argument against music. You just don’t even think about it. You just walk away from someone who’s stupid enough to ask that question. It’s like “pffff - some things are obvious!”. Okay, so that’s pretty fun.

Music Video for track 6, Paenitentia: youtube.com/watch?v=Yf_Q5zuvdOQ


2358 by SPARTALIEN (spartalien.com)

Runtime: 70 minutes

You wander and stumble. Through space and time. Literally. Soul searching and yearning for the one thing nobody has ever seen, but most have felt...
Suddenly, something flickers from the glare of your slowly dying flashlight. “That's not what I’m looking for!”, you think. Nonetheless, your ingrained curiosity is stronger...
It's an ancient recording device with some magnetic cassette tapes lying right beside it.; dust-layered, it kind of looks like it was left here on purpose...
One tape is still loaded in the recorder deck. “Whatever! It's 2 minutes to midnight anyway.”, you think - and hit the play button.
