I think it is worth to discuss Music values in a constitutional sense: What stands Music for, and what is Happening if it vanishes? I think that Emotion as a base for the Environment of reasoning would vanish. But why did reasoning select a emotional base? I think this is the same as the `Geworfenheit`in existential commitment. (thrownness)

I would also suggest, that Music mirrors what it is to be not oneself, but another (Lévinas or Rimbaud...) - it is what constitutes communication through monads in Husserls monadology. So fulfillment within an Event is a representation of what another being does in remembering myself. Earlier in history this was reflected in Persecution of witches. Now we are more intelligent, and may divide what it is to be a wizard (which have to be killed according to the Bible) or what it is to Support solidarity as a principle of the real (see also Whitehead)
