      [ How would you describe polyphony Richard in a simple definition? ]

      Polyphony means many voices. But, in music for example, it does not
      simply mean many people singing the same song/tune; it means many
      different voices singing many different tunes and parts within the one
      production, and yet it all working together in one accord. The
      production is the sum of the parts, but the sum of the production is
      more than any of the parts.

      In society it is the same. A working effective society is the sum of all
      the actions of all the people doing their own thing working toward one
      thing but all doing their own part to make it so. In life a rose does
      not sing the same tune to you as does a snowflake or rain or a sunset.
      All these things sing their own song to you, they all communicate with
      you. They all have some effect on you. So life and existence is the sum
      of all these parts. Not just any one of the parts. Polyphony in choral
      music is the height of the heights that it can go to and attain to.
      What can you attain to within the sum of the all? And what effects do
      you have within the whole on the sum of the whole? A polyphony resolved
      is a good chord to end on isn't it ;- ) RESOLVED ! JOB DONE. OVER
      ture. OPUS CONSUMATED. Paradesium. It was achieved. So well done
      indeed. Let it be said of any atom, any person, any deed – that was
      well done. This is the FEAST at the end of Time son. I told you to
      watch out for it and that it would come. It comes. Remember that. None
      of the parts will miss that.
