We are natural, artistic geniuses, and we don't realize it

These are short tunes I've composed that I'm sharing for now. I don't have the proper instruments for these tunes because I don't know much when it comes to instruments or music in general. Also, when creating melodies, I just create whatever I'm inspired to create. I personally think my melodies ar...

We are mental artists by nature

My Mentally Inspired Tunes And Their Unrealized Greatness I think people who know nothing about how music works can create great music in their minds. I think creating great music in our minds is a natural ability, no different than naturally expressing our love, joy, hate, and sorrow. Since music ...

I can't value things intellectually

My positive emotions are the only things that can make my life and composing dream something positive, beautiful, and worth living for. I'm going to explain why. My emotions are the only way I can value things in life which means I can't value things intellectually. As a matter of fact, I don't reca...

Re: The words we think as opposed to what we experience

I feel like I have nothing to say that I haven't already said, I won't repeat myself since it wasn't responded to the first time anyway. I'll wrap up my involvement in this thread here. Let's pretend that you had the thought in your mind that nature is beautiful. That thought would be information g...

My composing dream

Here are links that explain everything about my composing dream and these tunes in my head that I think are great. Other people don't realize their power and greatness yet and I talk much about this. These 2 links are links to the same, long, opening post that explain it all (just in case one link d...

Re: The words we think as opposed to what we experience

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and ask, just how are you using the word value? Is it not a belief in the importance or worth of something? You need to have the belief before you can "experience" or "perceive" it and this concept is not synonymous with saying something is beautiful or tragic...

Re: The words we think as opposed to what we experience

Firstly we don't "perceive" or "experience" value in philosophy, it is an idea or belief about the importance or worth of something like an ideal. It's not about whether something "matters" to you or not, that's not the same thing as valuing something. You can interpret or infer that if something "...

Re: The words we think as opposed to what we experience

I don't even understand your analogy but put simply, emotions by themselves, without interpretation, are insufficient for valuing something. It's like saying sperm is needed to create life but the problem is that it's insufficient to just have sperm and then create life, you need to fertilise an eg...

Re: The words we think as opposed to what we experience

I never made the claim that one can experience such things without emotions, I have no idea about that. It makes perfect sense to me that a highly intelligent AI might not feel such things. I am not prepared to use the word "emotions" but it's certainly true that we didn't create beauty, disgust an...

Re: The words we think as opposed to what we experience

You hide behind God to give your words a power they can't find through reason seemingly because you are tired of how others interpret the meaning of your experiences and emotions. Well if it makes you feel gratitude and optimism towards life then it's not so bad. You will have to deal with negative...

Re: The words we think as opposed to what we experience

Who says that? Nobody. Nobody says "You need to think the words I care about this person" and that's just such a dumb way to think about words in general. If I care about someone then words can help me express that, however, my basis for caring about something has nothing to do with the words. That...

Re: The words we think as opposed to what we experience

It goes without saying Mozartlink that we don't intellectually create emotions, we can't make new ones or get rid of old ones. It is far more complicated than segregating emotions into "positive and negative" ones but you've already recognised the intellectual aspect of emotions. It is the triggers...

Re: The words we think as opposed to what we experience

Whether you agree or disagree, it is a fact. An experience without interpretation is just a memory, incapable of creating an argument. Could you respond to the rest of my post regarding the drug addict's brain because my brain could be wired like that? In some contexts, most people are like that. I...
