The music of Felix Mendelssohn depicted as a “thought-form” - a visible aura which the Theosophist’s believe is created by the music and which “persists for some considerable time, and is clearly visible and intelligible to those who have eyes to see”.From Benjamin Breen’s excellent essay “Victorian Occultism and the Art of Synesthesia” - http://bit.ly/1mhnOfq

"The archetype of all fiction is the sexual act. In saying this I do not mean merely to remind the reader of the connection between all art and the erotic in human nature… . For what connects fiction — and music — with sex is the fundamental orgastic rhythm of tumescence and detumescence, of tension and resolution, of intensification to the point of climax and consummation. In the sophisticated forms of fiction as in the sophisticated practice of sex, much of the art consists of delaying climax within the framework of desire in order to prolong the pleasurable act itself."
