Emiliano Manna - Prelude "Tarantella?" in C Major
« on: July 13, 2018, 09:20:21 PM »
Came across this: today on

Thought you might enjoy it. I sure did. :)

The perceived not a sum of elements to be distinguished from each other and analyzed discretely, but a pattern, that is to say a form, a structure: the element's existence does not precede the existence of the whole, it comes neither before nor after it, for the parts do not determine the pattern, but the pattern determines the parts: knowledge of the pattern and of its laws, of the set and its structure, could not possibly be derived from discrete knowledge of the elements that compose it.

That means that you can look at a piece of a puzzle for three whole days, you can believe that you know all there is to know about its colouring and its shape, and be no further ahead than when you started. The only thing that counts is the ability to link this piece to other pieces...

Thanks Jamie! A bit on the nervous and athletic side for me, though :)
