Can we say that all materials have an effect on the listener?
Can we say that every individual material influences the effect the other materials have?
Can we say that the essence of form is the way the effect of each material is influenced by the other materials?

Do materials have an essence of their own or is their essence solely determined by everything around it?
Can we say that if the effect a material has, whether in and of itself or determined by everything around it, itself influences time and form to the extent of changing the meaning of other materials?
Can we say that the effect a material has, whether in and of itself or determined by everything around it, itself influences time and form to the extent of changing the meaning of itself?
