Steve Shaw: "Point taken, Amos, but are these really spiritual matters?"

You have certainly pointed out Beethoven's afflictions...but those were 'external', by way of his hearing loss...but alas, the spirit WITHIN him, was certainly in touch with something that could not be seen, nor heard, but by his spirit..and translated into sound, music.
Perhaps, if some musicians today could tap into the same, God only knows what would be manifest!
By the way, it has often been said, that genius in music is where technology(tools of the day) meets the spirit within.
I'm quite sure that applies to other fields, as well.
Though Beethoven has passed, his music still lives on...touching the spirit in new listeners, though the centuries....ever wonder what that resonating node is??
