Possibility will not always be realized.

The alternative is of no value, no virtue whatsoever. It is nothing, and without possibility at all.

That is the choice.

Any setting is replete with sounds.

Cultural and social conditioning contributes to the suppression of auditory perception.

The disposition to "not hear" sounds present in the environs, once overcome, presents the listener with an expansion of perceptual acuity, and offers the composer a palette of infinite variation.

Fitting Imperfection

To understand the experience of reality is to walk through walls.

The small, apparently insignificant gesture elevates expression, revealing what is beneath notice.

Order and Flux

Reality is unchanging, though perspectives alter any understanding, and much remains unknown.

Culture and society form a continuum of change that constantly evolves beyond the grasp of historical perspectives as the heretofore unimagined becomes commonplace.

But as ways of life, art, and expression, these are subject to unchanging reality.

Expression, Reaction, Response

Total effect is a goal in various fields of endeavor.

In crafting the outcome of any creative work, it is worthwhile to note that numerous effects may be developed to generate both unthinking reactions and reasoned responses, and to remember that all responses will reflect, to varied extents, the regard with which one holds the audience for the work.

Exercise XV

Observe what is not present.

That which is to be expected is subject to control. This is to say, one would not be aware, in a given scenario, of one or more elements beneath one's notice.  Attention would be focused elsewhere for any number of reasons, complacency, for example, or fatigue.

Perceptual consciousness is not mere ego. Recognition of unexpected information may yield abstract perspectives outside of common events and their causal relationships, altering one's point of view and, by extension, expression.
