    This ANTI-MUSIC THEME = John Coleman and ADORNO come to mind. i stated Adorno HATES this anti-music but we’re talking about TWO-FACES – his. It’s difficult to fanthom the depth of depraivity of these people.

    Did you read COLEMAN’S commentary on CULTURAL WAR and the connection of ADORNO and the BEATTLES.

    It’s a piece of cake for a shrewd or in the know PROPAGANDIST to stage 30 or so screaming young teenage girls at an AIRPORT to IMPLY a WAVE OF THE FUTURE. Going into an Auditorium full of hysterical girls in a GROUP-FRENZY is very real but it’s not the point.

    The point is the promotion at the AIRPORT — as they say, SETTING THE BALL ROLLING! (they own the NETWORKS so it isn’t very difficult for them to flash the AIRPORT SCENE at JOHN – Q – PUBLIC over and over and over JUST like SOME NAZI totalitarian on the RADIO! (I know this insinuates that not all nazi’s were nazis — intellectuals were sucked into the WHIRLPOOL as well because of all this PURITY/HERO worship compared to a ruined Germany. Fertile ground for mischief?)

    One promising development and I think FARRELL brought this up in his BIG ‘Z’ wise-cracks is that it is still the same with the MEDIA but it’s getting a little more DIFFICULT for them TO FOOL US SO QUICKLY?

    Think of that STATUE OF SADDAM HUSSEN — what a FARCE worthy of ALFRED JARRY!!!!!!!!

    Be a very bad day for everything if God was what human said he was…

    It was probably a very sane God before the snake dNa was added.

    truly very lovely music, Dr. Farrell- πŸ™‚

    as an opera-singer (bass-baritone) by profession I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to hear that at least one present-day composer (you) have the guts to go back to the roots of SANE music and add his own individual contribution- over the years I’ve been required to sing so much modern music crap that is indistinguishable from a crow concert but yet marketed- it’s an insult to the solar plexus and rips the human voice to shreds- and audiences go home emotionally empty-

    if you ever decide to write a vocal piece that could be sung by a bass-baritone (maybe something similar to the tour de force “Revenge” aria from HΓ€ndel’s “Alexander’s Feast”) send me the score- I’ll sing your world premiere for free πŸ™‚ seriously!

    but do try to avoid a tonality infested with sharps (not to be confused with the sea creatures of similar name… πŸ™‚ )- but seriously, the most vocally negotiable music for lower male voices are compositions in minor keys-

    many warmest regards,

    Larry in Germany

      I apologize profusely for adding this addendum, but if anyone is interested do check out Robert Newman’s interview originally on redicecreations.com entitled “The Mozart Myth”- lst hr. now only available on Newman’s website musicalrevisionism.info- mind-boggling info- just goes to show us how music in the past since the inception of the music industry has been completely manipulated- hence Newman’s forthcoming book “The Manipulation of Mozart”

    • Joseph P. Farrell on January 11, 2012 at 3:44 pm

      Thanks for the kind words Larry…there’s more of my music in the members’ area, including the entirety of the movement Dr deHart used for this

  4. paul degagne on January 11, 2012 at 5:20 am

    I like the sentence:

    “From the ‘highly confidential’ files of Farrell and de Hart comes this must read book.’

    Sadly it’s HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL no more. BUT WAIT —- where is a good place to hide something. Oh Yes —- in plain sight! So I will reserve my false regrets until I read this book? ( a good marketing ploy for us nosy-people)

    Anyway, I am a little SLOW for I am still trying to DIGEST GGMM and three others. I am presently trying to find out if Robert Koldewey wrote an Autobiography. I am guessing it would be a worthwhile read. I like you putting his picture along with an image of the “Sirrush” on page 13. It makes it much easier to grasp.

    Also on the opposite page the paragraph by the renowned naturalist Ivan T. Sanderson brings matters to the forefront. Especially, your 6 – point summary just below. Quite frankly, I wouldn’t buy any more books from you for I don’t like “running around in circles’ BUT sometimes the SUBJECT MATTER calls for it. (JUNG called this CIRCUMNAVIGATING a topic coming closer and closer each go-around. I get wary at times for I don’t like finding myself in Whirlpools which happens often enough or use ofuscative language to hide the lack of meaning or some old-hat point.)

    Also in this digestion phase I am in I need to further read WHAT ISN’T PROBLEMATIC in what Alan Alford’s approach as you stated on pg. 71 in THE COSMIC WAR.

    Then again, I REALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT THE CAUSALITY of ‘THE CATASTROPHE for the fact that a Catastrophe did occur is significant enough for me. ( I don’t think you really pin this down for there a few ‘GAPS’ but it doesn’t bother me for we are dealing with LANGUAGE ITSELF which I find VERY PROBLEMATIC.)

    • Dr. Scott D. de Hart on January 11, 2012 at 1:29 pm

      Dr. Farrell and I have both had our years of teaching at the college level and perhaps some of the socratic teaching technique is inevitable with the books … allow the reader to develop a sense of the problem, consider possible solutions, propose a few leads or point in the direction of analysis and discovering answers rather than providing answers for every question. Naturally, the questions and the development of the books is designed as you described, a bit like a whirlpool moving ever closer to the center by process of thinking. I recall my first meetings with Joseph … more questions than answers and eventually the answers came … leading to more questions … and more answers. The present works are written to bring Dr. Farrell’s regular readers closer and closer, while not excluding new readers from jumping in wherever they might be.

      • Joseph P. Farrell on January 11, 2012 at 3:38 pm

        Oh to re-instill the Socratic method! Professor Kingsfield lives!

        • HAL838 on January 12, 2012 at 5:41 am

          Aside from the well known and ugliest bust there ever was,
          there is no real evidence that Socrates ever existed.
          As a writer I know that such characters are often born
          from the writer’s need for a ‘construct’ to get points across
          they feel might be better reviewed coming from a ‘legend.’

          That idea has been nagging at me for a long time.
          MY point is that I’m not sure there ever was a ‘Socrates.’
          Can anyone shed more light?

          Who really wrote Shakespeare’s plays?

      • paul degagne on January 12, 2012 at 4:37 am

        It’s funny how when looking for something using a strict DIRECTED ATTENTION’ one flops in finding anything out BUT when letting it rest or SLEEPING ON IT as they say – the sought out OBJECT of DESIRE suddenly out of NOWHERE – APPEARS!

        i read your post about a pedagogic method and moving ever close to a thinking (although I sic” -think of IT as more like some kind of NOT – THINKING (don’t ask me about this ambiguity because it would all be a wasted-effort trying to rationalize something that isn’t based on REASON.)

        Someone said ‘THE EDGE OF NOTHING?” This puzzles me for how can nothing have an EDGE? Maybe some TRANSCENDENT OTHERNESS might have an EDGE TO IT which afterwards leads to a place of NOTHINGNESS.

        I am just FABRICATING some kind of MORNING DAYDREAM. This is not what I want to post.

        What I want to post is this in regards to the subject of WHIRLPOOLS! ( I thought it similar?)

        Last night going through a book by George Steiner called “The Grammar of Creation” I came across this reference on page 31 and WONDERED!

        It’s as follows;

        ” The imaging of chaos and of it surging out of nothingness,
        like a tornado gyrating around a dead stillness, is one of the nota-
        ble acts of early Hebraic and Hellenic questioning. It will culmi-
        nate in Book II of PARADISE LOST:

        The secrets of the hoary deep, a dark
        Illimitable Ocean without bound,
        Without dimension, where length, breath, and highth,
        And time and place are lost; where eldest Night
        And Chaos, Ancestors of Nature, hold
        Eternal Anarchy, amidst the noise
        Of endless wars, and by confusion stand.

        Behind Milton’s ‘Ten thousand fadom deep,” behind Satan’s
        quest for “the nearest coast of darkness . . . Bordering on light,”
        lies a prodigal tradition.


        Kind of reminds me of those exclusive DINNER PARTIES where someone is going around the crowd saying, “now what is the word for those fish eggs, oh I remember. Someone is going around saying CAv-VE-ARRRRR (see I didn’t forget to roll my R’s like any decent Frenchperson or near-BOSTONIAN doesn’t) ha, ha!

        Now who is this Professor Kingsfield?I got a hunch he is like HESSE’S MAGISTER LUDI?
        (What a lucky fellow that HESSE is having a MENTOR like that EVEN IF he really had to INVENT ONE UP?)

        (I’ll google the name up—What else is one to do nowadays?)

        • paul degagne on January 12, 2012 at 5:13 am

          Ah — THE PAPER CHASE (and professors who hold their students up in TERROR AND AWE)

          I had one something like that. He was (?) a PHILOSOPHY PROF teaching a Philosophy of the Mind course to us DUMB STUDENTS. ( he wasn’t the only one in the CLASS disappointed in the educational levels of students nowadays? Some of us were DISAPPOINTED in the SNOBBERY of profs! (he wasn’t a ficticious PROFESSOR but a Real One, ha, ha!)

          He hung some picture I think from the TV series the OUTER LIMITS of a SPACE ALIEN on his office-door suggesting similarities between space aliens and the QUESTIONS STUDENTS BRING TO HIM? (Kind of funny but very insulting if you realize he was SERIOUS!)

          He did get what he bragged as an associate the one and only B. F. SKINNER to come give a lecture in the auditorium a year and a half ago before I stated attending U-MASS. TOO BAD!

          He wrote one of those strict LOGIC BOOKS in which say = LOOK HOW SMART I AM!

          I passed the course with a B+ because I got as they say in this prison-house of language – NUMBER TOO?

          I had a dream where me and him were standing in the muck of low tide and before us was this rather large CRAB about the size of a washing machine which had a door-latch on it’s back inside of led to a library of mysterious old books.

          Oddly enough the next day when I went to attend his Friday-class a sign on the door said he will be absent this session. After the weekend in his next session he apologize or excused himself for his absence because he had to ‘Attend a funeral of a close associate who had just died of CANCER!

          Yes, I got his number alright. I lost the sense of INFERIORTY (thanks to the dream) he was imposing on us students for I realize I was after the SAME THING he was.although I didn’t pretend to KNOW-IT-ALL! (the only thing worse than a know it all is somebody who DOES-KNOW-IT-ALL but GOETHE’S are ARE RARE ANY-days)

          I still HAVE that lousy INFERIORITY hanging about. ( one wise psychologist said to this braggot who took-up or HOGGED all the AVIALIBLE time up in a group-meeting bragging how INFERIOR he is once said to him = “Perhaps the reason you feel so INFERIOR is because YOU ARE INFERIOR, ha, ha! (The NEUROTIC-POWER guy shut up after that one, ha, ha!”)

            The keyboard seems to be a direct line to your
            thought processes in rambling motion.

            Click on the link and just read the paragraph
            beside the picture.


          • paul degagne on January 13, 2012 at 5:59 am


            Thanks for the link.

            I especially fond of this clause in it =

            Never the Same, Always the Same.

            (kind of like heteogenity and homogenity combined = I spelt the word wrong. I can hear some critic saying to me LEARN TO SPELL. I respond to this LEFT(behind)BRAINS — learn what TACIT MEANING IS?)

            At the end of this marvelous paragraph they spoil it all
            using the generic word —- NOW
            (“AS IF” some 3 – letter buzzword says it all?


          • paul degagne on January 13, 2012 at 6:06 am

            I just finished reading George Steiner’s book “Grammars of Creation”(onto his language and silence) in which he compares the processes involved in mathematics, poetry, music and ART as similiar in kind. ( I think I am beginning to comprehend a little of this in HIS WAY. I have my own way of UNDERSTANDING but I think it wont hurt none to see things from HIS PERSPECTIVE. It just might add to MY OWN RE-POR-TRA?

          • paul degagne on January 13, 2012 at 6:09 am

            It a KEYBOARD like the ivories on a PIANO —- IN SOME WAYS IT IS? (ask any writer who has given-up using a PENCIL OR QUILL!)

          • paul degagne on January 13, 2012 at 6:20 am

            If the keys are like the bones or ivories then the MUSIC I CREATE is full of DISSONANCE AND INCONGRUENCE! I don’t mean it as such but what can I really do —the NOISE alerts one to WHAT ISN’T!
            (I suspect there is a THEME of ANTI- music here which STEINER AND ADORNO really justifibly HATE! I don’t blame them at all. I just regret that I am probably an UNCONSCIOUS AGENT of what is COMMING OUR WAY?

          • HAL838 on January 13, 2012 at 7:38 am

            “THE NOW”
            ties it all together because
            the only possible “now” is a
            Planck Time, approx 10 to the minus 43rd power!
            Which is also a time quanta serving as (time) frames
            such as in a movie.

          • HAL838 on January 13, 2012 at 11:02 am

            Paul, you are not paying attention.
            I explained my fingers raw as to
            how the Universe works and IS !

            IT is your religion with no “religion.”

            There is NOTHING–
            NO/THING it cannot explain through
            the Its own created science of its own THOUGHT=

            It’s a strange fact that my mother
            [not necessarily all that smart-the truth I tell]
            There’d be days like this.!

          • paul degagne on January 13, 2012 at 2:49 pm

            About MOTHERS:

            I remember as a little boy sitting beside my mother in a movie theater watching a DORIS DAY MOVIE and her singing,

            Que Sera Sera

            What ever will be will be

            The future’s not ours to see

            Que Sera Sera

            What will be will be.



        • HAL838 on January 12, 2012 at 9:02 am

          I think you might enjoy another perspective on that,
          or even A perspecrive at all, in a book
          by K C Kole

          “The Hole In the Universe: How Scientists Peered Over
          the Edge of Emptyness and Found Everything.”

          • paul degagne on January 12, 2012 at 3:06 pm

            The library has the book. I’ll give it a once over. I think I have an idea where she’s coming from looking inside the book over at Amazon.

            I don’t think it’s quite what I am after but maybe she might throw a couple of curve-balls that might come in handy at some future date.

            Ever come across some ‘material’ you don’t or didn’t pay much attention to only to discover it actually was something very VITAL?

            The nothingness I am interested in is more in line with what some European JEWISH Ethicists like Levinas address when speaking of the Shoah. it is partially Philosophic and partially a Religious Apologetics. The topic I think is called Theo-something but it is the examination of suffering and evil in the world and why is this so? (a Bataillain ATHEOLOGY is more like it but even that leaves something out or excludes. ( that excluded ‘trace?’ is VERY, VERY INTERESTING! )

            I am interested in what Julia Kristeva calls the ABJECT but not quite in her way?

            Never mind — I don’t want to BORE YOU with my own ‘STRANGE” interest.

            Have a good evening you all.

          • paul degagne on January 12, 2012 at 3:12 pm

            One more thing — If you were an AUTHOR would you ever title YOUR BOOK this?


            George Bataille did and only NUTS like me are interested? (one has to be partially crazy. . . OR two hundred years ahead of his TIME!)

          • paul degagne on January 12, 2012 at 4:04 pm

            That’s of a second, of course.

  5. Mike Infinity on January 10, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    Started reading the new Kindle ebook. Just a heads up, some of the formulas in the first chapter are not complete, just square boxes are shown where I think you intended numbers and functions. This is the case for about 1/3 of the formulas.



  6. Antoine on January 10, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    I didn’t finish reading yet but the information within is greatly worth the read. I concur with the opinion that Dr. Farrell should provide with the same means he’s doing the member conferences a concert of improvisations.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on January 10, 2012 at 10:00 pm

      Thanks for the nice words on my music guys

  7. MizGreen on January 10, 2012 at 8:32 pm

    Any estimate of when we can purchase the print version?

    • Joseph P. Farrell on January 10, 2012 at 10:00 pm

      Well the proofs are finally on their way… so if they turned out ok…soon hopefully. I will let everyone know.

  8. Ramura on January 10, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    Thank you, Dr. de Hart, for the commercial. Good one…

    But am I to assume that there is NO connection between the music composition/performance and our esteemed Dr. Farrell? Methinks it may be time for someone to ‘fess up…. πŸ™‚

    The music was GREAT! I loved the sense of tension. Perfect!

    Don’t be shy or humble, dear Dr. F…I believe your genius is showing…

    S ^i^

    PS — And if I am wrong, then it is a BIG “oops!” moment on my part…and I apologize for making assumptions! The music fit almost TOO perfectly, though, I must say…

    • Ramura on January 10, 2012 at 8:14 pm

      JPF’s acknowledgement that it WAS indeed his composition was not online when I was composing my comment. Just for the record…since in the order that it appears it would look like I didn’t read the comments before posting. Which I did. But I am pleased to have the acknowledgement. Loved it!

      • Dr. Scott D. de Hart on January 11, 2012 at 1:19 pm

        You’re indeed welcome. Dr. Farrell is a brilliant composer but few have had the chance to hear his works. When putting the commercial together I could think of no other piece of music to use that was more fitting than his own – seemed appropriate and a chance to share his hidden talents with others. Of course I did not ask for permission, I just did it and surprised him on his birthday. I am thrilled so many have enjoyed it.

        • Joseph P. Farrell on January 11, 2012 at 3:40 pm

          Thank you again my friend… it was a marvellous gift and a great blurb about our book! Thank you!

  9. HAL838 on January 10, 2012 at 7:50 pm

    A minstral?

    • Joseph P. Farrell on January 10, 2012 at 7:53 pm

      It’s some of my music actually, from the third movement of my Harpsichord Concerto in G Minor

      • HAL838 on January 11, 2012 at 8:03 am

        Ah, yes.
        It fits your background and it is indeed
        a type of minstral. Thank you.

        I was trying to place the form as I was listening and reading.

  10. Joseph P. Farrell on January 10, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Thank Dr. de Hart for that because he did the entire commercial!
