Doctrine and Covenants 25-26

(September 28, 2015)
                What is it about music that has such power?  There are certain things that convince me that our understanding of the universe, Divinity, and so forth is really in its infancy.  The power of music is one of those things.  After all, there is no meaningful reason why music should contain the power that it has, but it is undoubtedly true that it has this power.

                I could speculate on the source of this power, but both naturalistic and spiritual speculation do not make logical sense.  The only answer that I can really give is the recognition that music does not work the way that we think it does and the universe does not work the way that we think it does.  It may seem like too much of a conclusion to draw from a simple topic, but when something true clearly doesn’t fit your theory then your theory must inevitably bend.
