The people who can hear meaning in abstruse music are the ones who like it, and have a natural visceral propensity; the ones who say that they "reject" it are more often than not unable to hear it, based mainly on an inherently lower visceral propensity. These people are "crippled" from the start.

Nonsense.

Quote
What I'm saying is that "your ear" (visceral) is the stimulus that "draws you in" to more difficult music. This is a very natural ability, and some folks have it, while others don't.

Nonsense on stilts.

The most interesting information comes from children, for they tell all they know and then stop.

I find myself agreeing more and more with Florestan these days....am I growing wiser, or more insane?

Ideally, it ought to be both, perhaps.
