Very cool you open up this point, I've been investigating more in depth the 'music scenes' and precisely the most pervasive one currently is rap/hip hop and I agree that it is part of the 'social engineering' to keep people focused on sex, rape, misogyny and the rest of it. One dimension I had to remind myself while watching a very long - yet almost like a college class you won't ever get in any university - about music, music scenes and even some theory of it, is that as with anything music is just one aspect or expression that has been tainted by what is existent in our minds and so how we've made it 'ok' to have these lyrics in our minds without awareness or sometimes even wanting to 'act on it' or 'follow that lifestyle' which to me it happened with other kinds of music earlier on in my life.
So, here it is then to realize that surely it takes more of an awareness of 'how this music has come to be' first to then decide what one wants to 'feed one's mind' as Dr. Hans Utter - the lecturer in this series - pointed out, so that one decided 'who one is' whenever we listen to music, of any kind, because as they said there of course you might be in a shop, supermarket, watching a movie or playing a game and this music will come up and so simply as with everything be aware of what one participates on at a 'thought' level, because the sound in itself, the words in themselves are innocent, we are the ones that 'load' them with experiences/energies as fears, fantasies, desires, etc. and so 'make the music alive' by allowing ourselves to be conditioned by it.
An example is that I don't necessarily have to suddenly get an urge to 'go out and rape someone' if I listen to some of that rap music, and that's where one can then stand stable no matter 'what' is said in lyrics of this music, the same as with playing violent video games, it won't make me want to go out and grab a gun and kill people - yet, this Can happen with other people if no self-responsibility and self-awareness is lived, and this is by far a topic that is so important in relation to children, who are the ones now watching these music videos and lyrics and now shaping their whole personality and mind according to this which is shown as 'cool' and what 'a man or a woman is supposed to be like/act like' and that's a huge cultural problem, yet again, the solution would be to have first of all parents be aware of this themselves to then be an example to them, to live principles that simply would not give an 'opening' to consider any of what is suggested in these lyrics and videos...
At the same time, I also have understood it as part of the consequences we are facing based on the level that we've allowed ourselves to get 'possessed' in the mind with things like power and sex and all kinds of ideas of 'fun' and so on, which is then turned into this constant 'soundtrack of our lives' that can only affect us if we are still not standing as the directive principle in our own lives too. So, one by one we can share more about these findings and also in 'taking it back to self' for self-responsibility, developing self-awareness and generally to propose also other kinds of music for people to discover, which Dr. Hans Utter shares about as well.
So whenever you have some time to check this series out, it's quite recommended, because it dives into a lot of information, but also the investigators are sufficiently level-headed for the most part to not create a 'stigma' on music, but to understand it and so create an awareness around it. If anything it is in this forum that we can give a 'step further' to understand it in a more holistic manner as well, seeing the reflection of our 'real nature' as the current kinds of music that are popular and so take into consideration that it takes 2 to tango: even if the entire industry is manipulated and placed for any form of 'mind control,' it is also oneself that has participated into it 'mindlessly' as well, so it is actually a real reflection of ourselves when seeing 'what is popular' or 'made popular' and what people mostly 'follow' and what that is indicating about our current 'humanity', what is in our minds and so what 'sells' or 'is mostly listened to' by people, specially younger people since one is very susceptible at a younger age, but definitely not limited to any age in general when it comes to music, as you'll see in this series.
Thanks for sharing and opening up this subject
