Irrelevance of irrelevancy

 So, in accordance with my version of God I feel that we today have much more complex and much multi-polar self-realization of our relation with God then what we had in 12th century. I feel in 12th century God, particularly for the persons who observe it attentively, was a force of final destination and in a way it served degenerative function.  God was simplistic, his exposure or perception was overly dominating, and people did not has ability to compete neither with God’s actions, nor with God’s jealousy, nor with own desire to subordinate themselves to God. Nowadays, our version of God is much more complex and it is tested by much generation of thinkers. Our mind’s understating of God include today that newest Intel 87325645325 core chip and I personally feel that I am in 12 century would be very different then I am in 21 century.


First of all I'm not religious in any usual sense either and I'm allergic to any structured religion. What you describe is a typical,
healthy-rational and intellectual image of God, which is pretty much irrelevant for that type of art practiced by von Bingen and alike.
Intellect is not the highest thing, it is an evolutionary tool, just like the brain, the hands, two eyes, two kidneys, etc
The path of direct comprehension has existed always, in the 12th century just like now, I agree, but my feeling is that in 12th
century it might have been a bit more visible as all those generations of thinkers have not come yet, nor the technological
progress and other false gods. We believe in our intellects probably as strong as 12th century people in their god.
What if we switch them off?

Stefano, that was the language, I'm not an audiophile, anyway my initiall thread reached it's goal: thanks to you I know
where to look.




Cheers,

... ordered  Gardzienice's disk ...  at the end, as I'll sure give a fond and interested listen to your suggested disk - just curious -  let me ask: did you own/listened to the HM's disc I quoted, by any chance?  


Sefano, how did you find that Polish "barbaric", as my Greek friend put it, assault on the Ancient Greek music?

Unfortunately I still haven't heard the records you've suggested, but I'm comming to that.
