    Perhaps someone knows how to get that fascinating guitar sound found on the fisrt track of Sonic Youth's "Daydream Nation"? It's so New-Yorkish... I'd love to rip it off. Lior

    I tried to keep the scope of the argument limited to music, since that particular thing transcends the borders of human superiority; birds also sing, and my dog saunters to my room and lies by me whenever I play the guitar (I suppose that's a co...(more)

    It's good you mentioned music. One thing the flolks who spoke about the existence of soul neglected to add was those arbitrary definitions for deviation of pitches and rythem that have such an effect on the animal, and human in particular, mind....(more)

    There is so much to respond about, I don't know where to start. In any case: 1. About the intervention of other factors that might alter the brain's descicion making process: In physics clss we learned about the concept of an (rough translation...(more)

    Absolutely. Bur I think that the rock-human analogy was brought up to point out something else: We are all in fact no more than matter, gazillions of electrons and neutrons, and for that matter, since a rock's behaivor CAN be predicted to a cert...(more)

    Asimov also thought something similar. In the book 'I, Robot', the last story depicts a situatuion in which giant robots, or machines (that book was written before the introduction of the computer), pratically rule the earth, since they are powe...(more)

    That is my point exactly. Only I threw Schuffenhour in.

    My point is, that Schufenhour (I know how wrongly that's spelled, by try saying that and you'll get it), I think, said that 'nothing stands in will's way' (at least that's how you translate it from Hebrew). If you're passionate about music and g...(more)

    From what I gather, you're on the road to becoming a pretty good guitar player. What I don't gather, however, is the problem. How old are you? How long have you been playing?

    Of course artistic pretence will always be there, but why get so worked up about it? True, the idealization of hacks has become a much larger problem since the introduction of mass media, but no one says you, Motti, have to become so vexed every...(more)

    BTW, La Vitta Bella's on now, in channel 2. I can already see those commercial breaks making me scream with anger.

    1. I DID NOT say it was better, I said it was more correct. The point I was trying to make was that certain types of music tend to be more correct than others, and that makes them OBJECTIBVELY better. That is to say, if a computer, after being p...(more)

    Yes, Motti is indeed a pretty good friend of mine, but I don't see myself giving up on those wonderful creatures called girls anytime soon. Now, wouldn't it be a tad ironic to digress after what you've just said? Let's leave it at that, then. A...(more)

    OK, I have a better definition for the gripe: Motti's choice of who to scorn and who to praise is arbitrary. That is what makes people mad.

    1. I only call him a big fascist when we study, and that's only because he really does act like a big fascist when we study. 2. The only gripe I, personally, have about Motti's initial post, is that he cannot judge who's really well versed when...(more)

    He also singed off with 'do (or due) add fuzz to your wah. Interesting.

    First of all, I'll start off by saying Motti is a good friend of mine. Since we both see each other on a daily basis at school, I am more experienced at dealing with him than the average Wholenote memeber might be. Now, in order to shed some mor...(more)
