One's personality is both a composition and reflection, but if I have to choose one of them, I will choose reflection as the "self" is more important to me than "me". One's composition may change, walking across the cultural landscapes and climbing the social ladder but one's self is tied to one's reflections. The fun part is that reflections are not bound to "Time-Space" barriers ( it is not time-space) and respective mental constructs, which have grown so thick over ages, that they had reduced the image of humans to Sisyphus, rolling different sizes of boulders on hills of different heights.… As the name of this Blog indicates, knols are my perspectives on topics of interests, sweet/bitter experiences or just doodling :)

While listening to the North Carolina Symphony, I was unable to define my feelings. I was amazing about the abstractness of my feelings. Then I started to concentrate on the music to find my answer. Yes the answer was in the music. The music had a contrasting composition. Contrast has a unique ability to excite the human mind. It is a wonderful technique to liberate and free the mind. Here I thought that if the men of literature and artists also apply this technique in their discipline a whole new genera of art and literature will be produced that could make the base of a new culture in the history of future.


Contrastism is an aesthetically or romantic expression of feelings in literature and arts using contrasting feelings, symbols, colors, sounds, objects, etc.

Short explanation:-

Two opposite feelings make a very unique composition to awake up the feelings motivated by intuition, a feeling that rarely happens. When music or an expression make the feelings run between defined or commonly known but contrasting feelings, it makes the emotions abstract. Here in the abstraction of feelings one's emotions and sensations wander and struggle for point to rest. Wandering of this kind are neither joys nor sadness but an abstract feeling. One in this status awakes the intuition and reveals the points that very rarely available to normal thinking process. In normal state of mind both logic and emotions have clocks. Emotional clocks determine the status of one's routine emotions and also clock of logic determine one's normal judgment. Contrastism makes disturb these clocks and make one liberated of his routine for some special set of feelings and judgments. This is a strong tool in the hand of the creative men wherever they apply
