Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

A description of the experience

Johannes Kepler – Harmonices Mundi Libri V 1619

The functions and motions of bodies in which harmonic proportions are imitated arise from the soul and mind, showing that they are the cause why consonances give pleasure.  The Authority of the Ancients does not disagree………..

The sense of hearing discriminates between pleasant proportions i.e. consonant ones and unpleasant and dissonant ones.  Let him consider diligently that proportions are entities of reason, perceptible by reason alone, not by sense and that to distinguish the proportions i.e. the form, from the thing proportioned, i.e. from matter, is a function of the Intellect

The source of the experience
