There's something about these HypnoDreams that feels completely right, like a food that nourishes not because it contains a bunch of good elements, but because of its felt sense of integrity.

Well, you and Ananga have outdone yourselves. Now I know what you mean when you say "other than." This is really.. other than other :-)
My first impression, when I heard the percussion come in was, aaaahh, thank you. I was wanting percussion. My nervous system used to be too raw for it, and now I crave it.
So as the percussion was coming in, there was another sound that reminded me of.. either a Tibetan singing bowl or a NY city subway, I couldn't tell which, LOL!! Then I guess it didn't matter. But either way, it evoked this immense sense of anticipation, that carried over through the rest of the piece.
Then, I have to say, same with the other HypnoDreams, I'm often drawn to listening to the pure sounds of the words, and getting their flavor, all sort of direct sensory stuff, and not paying as much attention to the meaning of the words.
It's as if the words are feeding me something very directly which I can take in so easily, and that's so satisfying. After that, to put meanings to the words and phrases seems almost unnecessary, or at least too much work :-). Does that make sense?
It's almost like listening to someone speaking in a language you don't know, but you can get the necessary meaning because the language of the spirit is what's really being spoken. And that communicates so easily.
During the track I had the experience of being carried along happily through the textures of the words and sounds (word sounds and music sounds).
Now, this is all very interesting, how much I respond to HypnoDreams, since I am a person who loathes listening to books on tape, or even being read to. Especially when I'm tired, even when I have the energy to talk to someone, sometimes it takes too much energy to listen to their response. So I guess I'm very sensitive to what I hear.
There's something about these HypnoDreams that feels completely right, like a food that nourishes not because it contains a bunch of good elements, but because of its felt sense of integrity. Maybe you can say more than I can about how that works!
I also really liked that the music extended a few minutes at the end.. it felt like a right balance.
