Will strangers with nothing apparent in common with me please stop adding me to their circles or whatever. Discerning that we have nothing in common and then ignoring the friend requests is a labour-intensive chore I have no interest in.
Don't take this personally, as a slight on your character, or as an indication that I don't like you.
Derek Matravers asks: "How can two things as disparate as our emotional lives and our perception of an ordered structure of tones come together [in an experience in which one’s consciousness is filled with music shot through with emotion]?"
But surely this isn't at all strange! Our perception of the ordered structure of tones isn't even an experience apart from its emotional import! Matravers may as well wonder at our ability to experience shapes in vision "shot through" with a sense of their being coloured. Aaron Ridley has some words to say about this sort of thing.
I had the most extraordinary lunch today: scrambled eggs, beans on toast, a cup of tea, some cold fruit juice; all while listening to Bach violin suites. To write it makes it seem simple and trivial; but that tea was perfect, the Bach sublime, the eggs, lightly salted, incredible. The fact really is worth spreading.
Man, I'm Irish, there's no need to stress the importance of tea to me, or of how important it is to have it just perfect: my incredulity stemmed from, first, the thought that there could be an interpersonally perfect cup of tea, and second, the thought that there could be a body whose function was to standardise stuff.

A philosopher and a musician
I'm a philosopher and a musician. Philosophically, particularly I'm interested in aesthetics (on which subject I'm studying for a Ph.D.). As a musician, I'm primarily a composer, but also a classical guitarist, rock guitarist and pianist.
