I wonder, dear metalheads, if the rhythmic noise you prefer to listen to stays stuck inside your heads, after the fact.
Does it go around, and around, after the physical echoes die away?
Does it form a background to your thoughts, during waking hours?
Does it hinder your sleep at night?
I wonder this, because silencing my mind has been essential to my own development, and music made this impossible.
I rarely listen to music at all, any more, and guard my inner silence jealously. For once inserted into my head, music often plays on, for weeks, and months.
Besides, my hearing is so acute, that I hear bats chattering to each other, and noise can cause me pain.
Repetition is the most unpleasant thing, for me. A sort of craziness.
Why do you listen to what you listen to?
What does it do for you?
