This episode is somewhat experimental. First off, it might as well be entitled, “Where in the World is Bobby Fludd.” … While Bobby is off gallivanting around the country, Jordan being left to his own devices enlists the help of a friend to discuss the finer points of the power and symbolism of music. Although the audio quality is not great, the discussion most certainly is.
A fanciful and flowery and heated imagination beware of; because the things of God are of deep import; and time, and experience, and careful and ponderous and solemn thoughts can only find them out. Thy mind, O man! if thou wilt lead a soul unto salvation, must stretch as high as the utmost heavens, and search into and contemplate the darkest abyss, and the broad expanse of eternity–thou must commune with God. How much more dignified and noble are the thoughts of God, than the vain imaginations of the human heart! None but fools will trifle with the souls of men.
How vain and trifling have been our spirits, our conferences, our councils, our meetings, our private as well as public conversations–too low, too mean, too vulgar, too condescending for the dignified characters of the called and chosen of God, according to the purposes of His will, from before the foundation of the world! We are called to hold the keys of the mysteries of those things that have been kept hid from the foundation of the world until now.Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith – Section Three 1838-39, p.137

By the way: Spencer Cox … we forgot to talk about him this episode.
Consider: Literalism vs Symbolism
John pointed out that Beethoven signed his works in a way that reminded us that he attributed them to inspiration. If you can find a source on that please let us know.
Question: Has the world already invented all the melody’s that are possible to create?
