Life Reflects Music: Music Echoes Life

Beethoven declared: “music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life”. This talk will attempt to elucidate why and how it is that music and life both mirror their inexpressible contents. We shall touch upon the question of why Pythagoras’s statement about the “music of the spheres” applies not just in the metaphysical sense but also physically. Then we shall deal with an attitude to study (in music and in life) that shows a pathway to personal transformation, before moving on to show the indomitable courage and immense diligence of some great virtuosos who let no obstacle or inner torture stand in the way of their life’s mission to serve humanity through their chosen art. The importance of humility allied to the urge to press ever onwards and upward will be explained with actual cases.

Speaker Edi Bilimoria is an award-winning engineer and consultant to the petrochemical, transportation, and construction industries, but he has also been an ardent student of the Wisdom Tradition and the Arts for more than 50 years, giving courses and lecturing extensively in the UK and abroad.

Edi is also a pianist of concert standard having trained at the Trinity College of Music in London and subsequently with international concert pianists. He has produced a CD of music by Chopin and Liszt, and is also a choral singer, currently with the Godalming Choral Society and previously with the Brighton Festival Chorus, one of the UK’s leading symphony choruses.

Edi’s book The Snake and the Rope was awarded a prize by the Scientific and Medical Network in 2008, and his latest four-volume work, Unfolding Consciousness: Exploring the Living Universe and Intelligent Powers in Nature and Humans contrasts Science with the Perennial Philosophy on Consciousness and Man. In 2023, this work was awarded the SMN’s Grand Prize.
