    trying to reach Rev (?). Howison. This may not be the right place.

    I am looking forward to reading “God’s Mind in That Music” – I just ordered a copy. I was recently introduced to the work of Franklin Gamwell and his views on democracy. After years of working out some of the philosophical implications of the music and words of Sun Ra and his contemporaries, musical and political, what I would call the Black Enlightenment, I came across Youngquist’s book, “A Pure Solar World: Sun Ra and the Birth of Afro-Futurism.” I highly recommend this book. I look forward to fitting “God’s MInd” into this context of music, aesthetics, and philosophy/religion/metaphysics.
