3/25 post on Tian & Barad

It's very interesting that you, tangerines, should submit a post on the relationship between silence and music where silence can be music and can be made by those who cannot hear it, but rather feel the sensation. This really connects to Barad's argument about the role of human agency where she proposes that this phenomenon be represented through quantum mechanics in which we understand entanglement through her extension of "Knowing as part of being, from being part of nature" vs. "knowing as a human spectator, from outside of nature." However, is it necessary to learn quantum mechanics in order to understand this concept of human agency, because it seems that music can also be a tool through which we understood this concept of entanglement through understanding sensation and  the role of human agency.
