    He also has to be aware of the acoustic reality of the soundhall around him.
    Imagine being an actual classical composer, where, unless there is war, cannon and gunfire around you,
    the sound of your symphony is the loudest thing anyone can hear, or the quietness.

    Dear John Watt,

    Do sit down and listen to the "War Requiem" by Benjamin Britten - You'll be forever a changed man.
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."
