The Emperor of Music

The True Creative Power in Action

Through our intellect as the tool, our self-awareness uses our mind, and through the coordination of feeling and understanding our self-awareness rules our mind in a completely natural way.

The Workshop of the Creative Ruler

Our mind is that substance, that material from which each individual thought is made – including the musical thought.

Just as the smith heats the iron in a forge, shapes it while it is hot and then hardens it with cold – thus giving the form durability – in the same manner our self warms the material of our mind in the forge of our feeling, shapes it through the coordinated function of feeling and understanding, and finally hardens it – that is, gives durability to our thought through the cooling effect of our understanding.

Creating the Complete Musical Sound Pattern

Such continuous forging and re-forging of a thought into ever new shapes by adding heat and cold, and heat and cold successively, is the mechanical process of creating music on the level of the mind.

And after this process of the creative shaping of thought the mind delivers the complete musical sound pattern to the self-awareness of the tone creator.

Surveying the Musical Thought

Like a feeler, his sense of hearing palpates the shape of the musical thought and surveys its content of warmth or cold.
With this information of the thought-structure, the self-awareness of the tone creator hears the complete musical sound pattern, and from the information on the thought-temperature the self-awareness evaluates the potential for further sounding diversity.

The Systematic Structuring of Increasingly Comprehensive Orders

During this inner concert, which is directed towards greater and greater fullness, the self-awareness experiences a powerful joy, and if it desires to enhance this joy even further, it increases the coordination between feeling and understanding, and the mind, through the sense of hearing, delivers to the self a musical image of an even greater perfection, of even greater variety, and of even stronger unity: a more comprehensive harmony.

Achievement-Oriented Sovereignty over Creativity

Apart from the fact that the self-awareness rejoices in this self-created inner concert, the sense of hearing, while receiving more subtle mental-musical information, becomes stronger through the energy contained in this thought-substance and becomes more and more refreshed through the intelligence contained in this thought-structure. Thus the capability of the sense of hearing in conveying information is considerably improved, which in turn unites it even closer with its employer, the self-awareness.

Free Sovereignty over the World of Music

The direct, free sovereignty of the self-awareness over the mind, the free sovereignty of the self-awareness over the sense of hearing, and the structural analysis of the effect of the mind, or rather the effect of a thought produced from it, on its environment – up to the physiology – is the foundation for any sort of meaningful creative activity and is the natural basis for an authentically creative person; for, if someone does not create authentically as well, the effect of the original will not be achieved; the truth will not be grasped – let alone conveyed – and the inner, joyful, fulfilling astonishment will be missing.

The Origin of True Creative Education

Therefore, true creative education begins deep within the life of the individual person; and here also lies the key to his dignified influence upon his environment.

The integrated mastery over all these above-mentioned technologies must be learned perfectly, so that it can be applied consciously and naturally.

“Able” as Opposed to “Affected”

“Naturally” here stands for “cosmically” and “skilfully” (as different from earthly “affectedly”), that is without strain and completely playfully.

“Creating naturally” means to advance, without personal impediments, to new worlds and to leave old worlds behind while vivaciously and fearlessly overcoming possible obstacles of one’s own inner resistance in manifold ways.
