It doesn't matter how many bits or seconds it takes to know you are. That you were not born and will never die, that you are beyond time and space, that you and now are synonymous. You mean your self, not music you hear at the moment. Or even one not heard, it doesn't matter --spirituality is you.What is very compelling is that there are very few things on the list that belong to the 20th century. Mahler songs, Rachmaninoff transcriptions, Prokofiev. Nothing in the list which is atonal, dissected, reduced, distorted or perverted. Nothing from the alluring games of the mind, the opposite of the spiritual.
