“People are accustomed to music, they do not notice miracles in it. Philosophy, the great science of life, has not yet put forward a person who would reveal in its entirety the grandiose epic of the knowledge of life, unfolded in music. Musicians, by their specialization, protect themselves from life and, to be honest, sometimes from music itself.”
Boris Asafiev, About Symphonic and Chamber Music, 1919-1945

Perhaps Nature is our creator, or something else.
