p.181   It’s 5.30 on Friday 21st March and I’m in my office killing time till I meet Carrie at six for a quick bite in the Arts Centre Cafe before a concert we’re going to… Haydn and Mozart, I think… Carrie booked the tickets… a waste of time, really… I like listening to music as background, while I’m doing something else, but not sitting in a concert hall… After a few bars, I’m away, daydreaming, free-associating… no doubt I don’t know enough about music, but I wonder how many people actually think music when they’re listening to it… very few I bet… Imagine if you could put a wire into every brain in a concert hall and watch the scan patterns — would they all be the same? I very much doubt it… and if you could actually download the semantic contents of their brain activity digitally and decode them and print them out, five hundred people all listening to the same piece of music, I bet you’d get five hundred totally different totally unique thought streams as wild and incoherent and surprising as dreams… all kinds of thoughts, trivial, serious, erotic… did I lock the back door I like that woman’s scarf the lead violin’s nose is dripping he must have a cold I’ve got a bit of indigestion mustn’t fart I like this bit it’s on that CD she gave me last Christmas I must remember to buy her a birthday card that cellist something very sexy about a woman playing the cello right up between her thighs why does the conductor keep flicking the hair out of his eyes why doesn’t he get himself a fucking haircut I need one myself actually must make an appointment that travel agency next door where shall we go next year not Majorca again what about Portugal and so on and so on… Hmm, not bad that, but I cheated of course…   Added by: Dominique Meeùs
