Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks for describing that much already. Just curious, how crazy people can be ;-)

Here's an explanation of Schoenberg's twelve tone method--note at 01:37 what is written on the front sheet of his Composition with Twelve Tones:

To understand the very nature of creation, one must acknowledge that there was no light before the Lord said "Let there be light".

So....religious ideas, light and dark, moral confusions...I see it growing out of that (the way I see Heidegger's philosophy caught in religious ideas put against world events--Heidegger was german, Schoenberg was austrian--there's a tortuousness I find in both--not party people; committed to ideals that were going strangely wrong--heh...that's my reading!)  

Anyways, here's the film (5:23):

Don't fight forces, use them R. Buckminster Fuller.
