The Fullness of a Manifold Composi-tion in a Single Idea
Complete Fulfil-ment of Desires and Complete knowl-edge of Truth as One
The World of Pure Knowledge as the Absolute Musical Force-Field
Level of Perfect Creativity
of the Absolute Tone-Substance
And we realize that, as the entire tree is there in the seed already without it having to prove itself by the relative pro-cess of growth in the same manner, on the level of the har-mony, each musical idea is there already as the infinitely com-pressed fullness of a manifold musical composition. Indeed, we do not have to wait for the composition to grow as separate from the idea: within even the smallest musical idea the entire musical work can be discovered, and is completely and per-fectly present there in infinite diversity.
Thus, the reality of true music we find in the absolute musical force-field of the harmony as a perfect world of our pure knowl-edge, and looking out into the relative musical developments in the sequence-spaces, in the motif-spaces, and in the musical sound-space, we are surprised to find a separation between the question and the answer of truth.
We also notice there a distinction between lower and higher fulfilment, and we realize now that this lack of unity is completely bound to this limited, relative form of creation.
