Humans have an affinity to both: clear and distinct information, utterances and understandings – and to the opposite: a devotion to multiple meanings as expressed in music. Sometimes we feel that music speaks, but when pressed to give a formulation of what we heard our words fail. It might be that this wider range and uncertainty of meaning has a higher potential for individual and social integration.
Clear words and utterances sometime have sharp frontiers distinguishing not only meanings but members from non-members. In pre-modern salons as we had them in Petersburg, Paris, Berlin, London and many other countries, the rule of conversation was not to decide a question, as is required in scientific debates. No, the top rule for the host or hostess was to include every participant in common conversations. Here it was dispreferred to urge a debate to a point of decision. In certain domains, if not in society in general, the value of fuzziness is today higher estimated than a few years ago. In psychotherapy often not to-speak-to-the point is more helpful than a precise interpretation. The value of quasi-musical integration is rediscovered again. Time to study rhythm and sound in performative practices and psychotherapy.
