Aleister Crowley, The Muses, and Trance in Greece and Modern Times (Part II) – By Jonas E. Alexis

A very engaging article from Jonas E.  Alexis and Veteran’s Today –

The power of Images and Music is vastly under-appreciated and indeed related to the unseen world….and as Television bathes us in rapidly flashing images and while Music is willingly submitted to,   Technology and our own desires have granted us the ability to revel in large doses of what is essentially very strong medicine. 

As a Musician and Philosophical Observer i have analysed and dissected Music from many angles;  from the Emotional aspects to the Mechanical.   To sit down and consciously create music is one thing,  that is what i refer to as Composition.   And while i have never  (thankfully)  felt possessed,  it is interesting in light of this article to note that the best melodies by far that i have written have all come to me at once,  in a single moment,  when i was not trying to compose.   There is definitely something to being  “in the zone”  for sure,  and drugs do assist in this,  where i find my Mind is either doing its best work without my conscious attention or has tuned into some frequency in the aether….as to the possibility of the former,  it could very well be like when we are trying to recall some bit of information that is on the tip of our tongue,  and the more we focus upon it the more it seems to slip away.  And only later,  when not thinking about it and engaged in another task  suddenly it pops into our heads.   Why would that be?  Why would the brain perform better when not being directed consciously by the user?  It seems that both situations could exist,  where being in the zone puts one in a receptive state,  and if one is Artistic then they will pick something up from the unrecognized realms of our Reality.  
Or, being Artistic and having already directed their Artistic Mind in such a way as to create in absentia,  they create much like those facts that unexpectedly pop up.
