    Fumihiko Maki - Nurturing Dreams: (Stonehenge) was a demonstration of community and a place of ceremony.... Standing in the space at Stonehenge, prehistoric man must have felt himself to be, however briefly, a larger human being than at ordinary times, and must have felt pride in belonging to a community....

    The sense that one is a larger human being, if only for a time, is a sign of spiritual exaltation which cannot be evoked merely by the sight of a monument. It is an experience that can be gained only by entering a space. Stonehenge may not have had a roof, but the pillars arranged in a circle and the lintels linking those pillars created a boundary between inside and outside, and a kind of interior space.

    Historically, a space that is large or high or created with a special technology or in a special place uplifts the spirit and forges communal bonds....

    Music and space, during the interval in which they are experienced, provide man with the most primary spiritual joy.
