Creative restructuring of our planet appeals to my fellow musicians and me more than anything I can think of. Instead of putting the arts last, the arts should come first. Our country is the most creative country on earth and we have been going down the wrong path for years. It is time we restore arts programs, build new ones, buy art materials, musical instruments, pay arts educators well, and generally take advantage of the American gusto that has built up business and Free Play cover art so that the arts become a priority. I want to return to the days when Louis Armstrong was a musical emissary to Russia, when the Dance Touring Program brought dance to small colleges throughout the US and supported them on State Department Tours. I advocate doing the same for music and dance now and it is the major reason I am applying to American Music Abroad.


I wrote a doctoral dissertation on Intuition and Creativity so I have studied creativity scientifically. Creative forces are constructive, bring people together and solve all kinds of problems. Creativity takes on cultural forms, of course, and yet there is a universality which is expressed in the folk tradition. I see this tradition as part of World Music, World Beat, and folk music. Jazz is a form of urban folk music. Beginning in the ‘70s I began searching out and playing with musicians from around the world to learn from them and to use scales and meter that catch my ear. Now I want to reestablish cultural ties that have become frayed and politicized, bring creative people to the fore, give them credit, and put them in charge of things to establish unity and purpose in the arts and to make things peaceful and harmonic.

Nspacetime = 0

Nspacetime = 1

0 = 1

0 = spirit

1 = spirit

N0 spacetime = N1 spacetime

N0 spacetime = light matter

N1 spacetime = dark matter

Each N–N0 and N1–have unique laws of physics and interact according to them.  Notes, words, expressions of vibratory nature and relative levels of acceleration constitute N, 0 and 1.

Every part is of the whole and is entangled.

Parts are words, letters, narrative, poetry.

Notes are vibratory and interact on all levels, just as do words.

Matter and energy inform words, notes.

Dark and light inhabit dark universes and light universes and are organized into dark and light centers of energy/matter/spirit and interact and can be formed into structures, maps, essences of greater transparency or lesser transparency.  Quality is defined by transparency and dischord (discord) shapes transparency. Dischord and transparency coexist to bring about chiarascuro, depth, flatness, and limit.

We participate in this in real and in projected form.

If physics is the king of the sciences, then psychology is the monad of the sciences encompassing all sciences, spirit, chaos, order, elemental and civilization without end:  DISCUSS.

Alternate Universes of the Soul

When I look at a rainbow, only I see it.  No, you see your own rainbow.  The physics of rainbows stipulates the center of a rainbow is the point opposite the sun, from your perspective.  Sunlight reflects off water droplets and rainbows are not concrete objects.  They cast no shadows and are not three-or other-dimensional.

My ego, body-based, differs from yours.  My reality is not identical with the reality of anyone else.  My history, my experience, my memory, none of it matches up exactly with those of anybody else.  Like the rainbow, I carry around my own continuum, light-cone, universe.

We live in both a macro and a subatomic universe.  The macro universe is ruled by Einstein, the subatomic universe by quantum law.  I submit we, each of us, reflect the alternate universe hypothesis so hot in today’s discussion among many physicists.  Each second, or rather, in the nanosecond of our reality, the existential point, we ride waves of energy, are carried places, surf the waves, move.  No one is sitting still.  At our stillest, in deep meditation, waves break on the beach of existence.  In satori we join with a quantum oneness.  Everything is one.  One holographic joining—a shared universe.  This experience of oneness is personal but feels universal.  The paradox of oneness and otherness is resolved.

If so, also resolved is the question of individual and total.  The total we are a part of we see as we see a rainbow.  Totality forms itself around our corporality.  We see it, experience it, from a singular perspective, yet it is Total.  We move through the Totality, sharing it, of it, and still a part of us remains apart from your Totality.

I carry my alternate universe around with me.  The quantum physicists who profess the concepts of what is referred to as string theory find unlimited, infinite numbers of quantum universes.  It is not simple—the gold standard of physics theories.  It is not elegant, and it is not pretty.  Simple would be melding Einstein and Bohr by living both in a shared and in a multiple world.  Everything would not only be relative, apart, and separate, but shared, responsive to action, and purposive.

Quantum theory describes superposition, a state of unqualification, potential, a wave that does not crash, Schrödinger’s cat neither dead or alive.  I live my life like that.  But not only do I wait for the wave to coalesce so I see which way it is breaking, I can make the wave emerge by making a move.  What I am saying is that the move does not have to be limited to our familiar 4-dimensional universe.

I will be making further efforts in the near future to merge the three pillars of existence—psychology, quantum physics, and relativity physics.
