When experiencing music, a listener may allude to aspects of that experience that are difficult to characterize; that are almost wordless or ineffable; that are private and personal; that are individual and deeply meaningful; that may be too evanescent to grasp; that may feel "infinite" or "unbounded" in some sense (can't be boxed in with words).
Surprisingly, I have been able to construct a model for this variety of experience. The model (the "Transcendental Model") draws on successful models of human experience in the fields in psychoanalysis, psychology, artificial intelligence; which are combined with specific materials from the field of music.
