Our music was once divided into its proper forms…It was not permitted to exchange the melodic styles of these established forms and others. Knowledge and informed judgement penalized disobedience. There were no whistles, unmusical mob-noises, or clapping for applause. The rule was to listen silently and learn; boys, teachers, and the crowd were kept in order by threat of the stick… . But later, an unmusical anarchy was led by poets who had natural talent, but were ignorant of the laws of music…Through foolishness they deceived themselves into thinking that there was no right or wrong way in music, that it was to be judged good or bad by the pleasure it gave. By their works and their theories they infected the masses with the presumption to think themselves adequate judges. So our theatres, once silent, grew vocal, and aristocracy of music gave way to a pernicious theocracy…the criterion was not music, but a reputation for promiscuous cleverness and a spirit of law-breaking.
People have been complaining about new music literally forever.
whoa can we just talk about this game
I played it for like 5 hours last night
it’s a flash platforming game with a philosophical dilemma at the end of each level, which is essentially the coolest thing ever
it keeps track of your answers and at the end plots you on a graph with a bunch of famous thinkers/historical figures (I ended up nearest amelia earhart, go figure I did like 15 book reports on her in elementary school) and lets you know what type of thinker you are
I also thought the avatar creator was pretty cool because it doesn’t explicitly force you to pick boy or girl
the controls are a little janky but overall I thought the level design was really nice and the last few levels manage to be both fun and challenging
good game. would recommend. you should be playing this
