It may add new meaning to the dimension of Beethoven's statements.... NOT 'religion' based!!!

Ludwig van Beethoven: "The vibrations on the air are the breath of God speaking to man's soul. Music is the language of God. We musicians are as close to God as man can be. We hear his voice, we read his lips, we give birth to the children of God, who sing his praise. That's what musicians are."

"Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy. Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents."
― Ludwig van Beethoven

"Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend."
― Ludwig van Beethoven

"Music is ... A higher revelation than all Wisdom & Philosophy"
― Ludwig van Beethoven

"Don't only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the divine."
― Ludwig van Beethoven

"My misfortune is doubly painful to me because I am bound to be misunderstood; for me there can be no relaxation with my fellow-men, no refined conversations, no mutual exchange of ideas, I must live alone like someone who has been banished."
― Ludwig van Beethoven

"Music is the mediator between
the spiritual and the sensual life."
― Ludwig van Beethoven

That all being said,....(or quoted)...YOU might have a different perception, of what is considered to be (quoting Ludwig), 'divine' 'Spiritual', 'ideas', 'higher revelations',...and even 'God'...

Not a matter of being an atheist....a matter of tapping into the unseen!!

Just 'consider' it.
