What is a human being? It almost is an impossible question. To be is to be divine. This is an aged old problem which faces all human kind from the beginning of time. These problems face both men and women so there are evil selfish men in the world and also evil selfish women.
The reason for writing my book is to present to the public the life of a real artist in our times. The purpose and goal of it is to hopefully clear some of this misunderstanding between the commercial music business, earning a living in music, creating music that one can respect and to separate real art music from entertainment music. The entertainment industry for me destroys the laws of pure music and its divine function; because entertainment music main purpose is to create income for the investors and not to create fine art for the public. I wrote a lecture and composed a concert for it and called it Creativity and the Artist (1977). This was the beginning of my writing career. I had no idea that many years later that I would write another lecture concert after living in New York for many years called the Dark Age of Music (1988) which I also wrote music for. This was due to the fact that I could not express myself in music and earn a living. If I wanted to earn a living I would have to follow the rules of the commercial community, but I had this desire to express the truth according to Greg Henry Waters. Writing and music became the same vision and creative outlet.
The author goes into politics, religion, family life and more. It is some times a biography.
I would say it is not a happy reflection of life. We are ruled by the ignorant not by the wise.
Are we free to choose? What is a human being? It almost is an impossible question. To be is to be divine. No one understands this! PDF File 235 Pages!
