How to Understand the Role of Music and Musicology in the Indian Philosophical Way

You see the music is not just psychology; it is philosophy at the same time. We sing the words so it is music, and when we think the words it is philosophy. When we write and read words; it is literature. However, our concern is music and the way we use and accept it in various forms of knowledge. When we sing the words that come out of our mouth it is not just music because we have meaning, thoughts, ideas, feelings, emotions and lot more associated with it.

Thus, we accept the metaphor of words and it leads to metaphysics and musicology. We consider how we can correlate music with knowledge and wisdom. It has a touch philosophy when we search for the metaphors hidden in each word we sing or hear. So, when we think about every word that flows out of our mouth, we learn to be thinkers. If we ignore the methods of oral and vocal learning it leads us to be less philosophical. We now need to understand little about philosophy and philosopher. What does a philosopher do? How does one think in Philosophy? What is philosophical thinking?

The philosopher does not go after the words, it is not interpretation. The philosopher finds the thought and idea-wait a minute-the cause of the origin of that thought and idea. This is finding the metaphor in the music that has the healing powers. This gives it a scientific touch because healing is a scientific process, so it we also know it as musicology.

How we understand thinking and philosophy is an issue that needs some words that we can consider to understand it. You see we are very familiar with the word creative thinking. Have we ever thought what creative thinking is?

Does thinking need word only? Music makes it clear why we cannot simply depend up on the words alone. The sounds create the metaphor. We can understand it when we learn that the music and noise differ; some sounds can create music without words. Similarly, some creativity can make thinking creative. It is the touch of feelings in a scientific way. We manage the scientific way to sounds and the sound turns into music. If we apply it to our feelings we can have the scientific feelings. The scientific feelings are the creative part of thinking. However, if we read, remember and write, we do the same in the interactions-the effect does not change-it remains the same.

So, what the words can make at most. Well, it can be at most communication. However, as we have discussed we cannot convey our feelings in words, we have gestures and postures to support our communication.

However, we need touch of creativity in it to make it a talk that goes as if we are listening music. We may listen to music without words, so can be possible in the creative communication. Thus, the Indian languages give communication reason, logic, and creativeness making it creative thinking in various forms constituting the creative communication as we have discussed in this article. It is same with music because music is also an integral part of communication in the creative arts, particularly the languages and all other forms of communication present in nature and in our life.
