and the best of classical music together. The sonosphere—the
sea of sounds which surrounds—deserves as much attention and
care as our water and air!
It is possible that the number of mirrors present in a culture
is inversely proportional to the depth of true self-knowledge
In other words, the more mirrors, the less I know myself.
Why might this be so?
Perhaps it is because not reflective glass surfaces,
but rather relationship—with myself, with you, and with the world
around me—is the real mirror which reveals in every moment
who and what I am.
Perhaps one could say that I only can know myself
insofar as I see myself reflected in the face of the other,
in your face, in the face of the world, so to speak.
What are we waiting for? Break the mirror!
