COMPETITION — Music Themes

Johnny chose the theme of COMPETITION
 Newton’s Third Law of Physics  :   For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Newton’s third Law of Physics exemplifies, in my opinion,  how COMPETITION works to retain equilibrium through the exquisitely balanced tension of opposition.

In nature there is always COMPETITION that preserves a balance. There is also cooperation within species and between species. There are also symbiotic as well as parasitic relationships.  None of this can be called good or bad. All actions, reactions, and relationships affect all of us individually. There is no such stance as neutral in the natural world. All aspects of everything are interactive. Everything just is. We are all relatives.
AGUAS DA AMAZONIA — Uakti — Philip Glass
54min. 50sec.

AGUAS DA AMAZONIA (Spanish) = Waters of the Amazon

The legend of Uakti shows how perceived COMPETITION led to the jealous murder of a magical being. In the end, balance was achieved through Uakti sharing his gift with everyone.

Uakti is a Legend from a tribe Amazons (Uakti is from Brazil) Uakti had holes all over his body. When the wind went through the holes, an amazing sound could be heard, and it attracted every women. The men from the tribe killed Uakti and buried him. Where he was buried, palm trees grew, which wood was used by the tribe to make flutes that had the same sound as the wind passing through Uakti’s body.
It is an endless enigma that all of Creation consists of opposing forces held in eternal balance, a COMPETITIVE tension that cannot end.

Oh Good Luck — I Bemoan the Wounds of Fortune — Poems of Power
With the free will that we all possess we can decide which side of the balance we choose for our lives.  Should too many choose to engage in COMPETITION to the bitter end, there will be nothing left of this world but a field of broken swords.
We, ourselves decide what is good and what is evil, relative to our desires and how we interpret what is important.
We choose what is worth fighting for.
Will there be peace when all of the swords are broken?
