A friend who studied states of consciousness said “It’s amazing when you play piano that your attention is divided.”
“What’s the big deal about that?” I didn’t understand.
He clarified “You do more than one thing at once so your mind is in more than one place simultaneously.”
So what about people driving a car I thought? I think about this a lot. You can drive and not think about it and you can play music on auto pilot too. I admire the opposite very much. Driving and thinking about what you’re doing, playing music and being present for each note
at least trying to.
