" Again, in music, (writes Michael Leyton) the composer Xenakis
produces compositions that have the structure of statistically
generated processes like those of gasses..." (Symmetry, Causality,
Mind - Chapter 4, 4.3 p 158)

and prior to that a few pages, Leyton writes

" When one hears a twig snapping, some way off in the forest, one
hears an event that has happened some time before the ear received the
sound waves, furthermore, what one hears is a causal interaction; ie.,
a twig being broken." Prior to which he wrote, " one does not hear
the sound stimuli that are at the ear; one hears instead the three
dimensionl environment that has been recovered."


" (Thus) the purpose of cognition is to compensate for the forward
asymmetry of physical time with the backward asymmetry of
psychological time. Notice, finally, that the classical dichotomy of
mind and body rests ultimately on a difference between two directions
of time. 4.8.1"
