“…not to be celebrated in the presence of common people…”

The late 13th-century theorist Johannes de Grocheo believed that the motet was “not to be celebrated in the presence of common people, because they do not notice its subtlety, nor are they delighted in hearing it, but in the presence of the educated and of those who are seeking out subtleties in the arts.”

Came across this quote today while reading.

“Seeking out subtleties in the arts”. I love it! Love it!

On that note, I was again reflecting today on the clash between brahmanic cultivation and decadance. One can witness how there are attempts to appropriate aspects of brahamanic cultivation yet these amount to no more than scheming since they fail to heed the ground of brahmanic cultivation. To put it more basically, people can lie for a while and make things which are ungrounded seem like reality, but eventually they collapse.
