... don't you forget, caught in a trap (it never ends: it's my life!)

"Quite generally, only music, placed beside the world, can give us an idea of what is meant by the justification of the world as an aesthetic phenomenon. The joy aroused by the tragic myth has the same origin as the joyous sensation of dissonance in music. The Dionysian, with its primordial joy experienced even in pain, is the common source of music and tragic myth." (B/T)

Ok. And doesn't S/M also have this queer blending of what Nietzsche calls 'dissonance'--of joy and pain combined to create a new force, or new forces, that is/are (a)rousing?
