Is it a jigsaw puzzle where all that needs to be done is to fit the
parts together, or more liike not
knowing what the question is? And then, the subject being one to which
we only have subjective access,
x can say "this explains music to me" and y can say "I find that
explanation unsatisfactory." If we have
differenty conceptions of music, how can I prove to you that my
perceptions predict yopur perceptions better than
your own? I mean, face it, music-science is semi-absurd field, which is
one reason I like it.
