Great post! You said a lot of interesting things in there but you grabbed me most with the distance thing. I never thought about that. Obviously, music is my preferred art form but I didn't think about how it seemingly cuts out a whole cognitive step. Music injects itself directly into your brain and even though you might not know exactly what you are feeling, music makes you feel SOMETHING (be it pleasure, sadness, or even pure disgust).
This makes me think of another aspect of being a music collector that I love: album art. Adding a visual element to an already emotionally packed media helps me to immerse myself even more. Sometimes the album art can completely change the tone of the music I am listening to. It makes it that much more personal. It really is sad to see that aspect of music being slowly diminished.
Confusion will be my epitaph...

It's fact that human beings love music and need it in whatever form we personally derive our own enjoyment from it.
Just like other parts of the brain, some areas are more receptive than others I.E some people get off on mathematical equations as their brains are wired that way and so some brains are wired for music more than others.
