I am not in a position to enter into the merits of Blaise Pascal’s thought, but I can try to interpret this particular illuminating and evocative piece2. We perceive the clear spaces as spaces of silence of an eternal stillness or at least devoid of the temporal dimension on the earth scale. I think we can say that in the case of this thought by Pascal silence dismays and frightens. Although the lm of science fiction shows us explosions of planets, stars and space ships of all sizes with great roar, know that the sound can not spread through the void of space. However, one could say that with current technologies it is possible to listen to the sound of the pleasures of our solar system as in the Symphonies of the Planets of NASA Voyager Recordings (2016), obviously the result of computer and sound processing3. According to Raymond Murray Schafer (1985: 353), Pascal’s di-last can be interpreted in relation to the Galilean invention of the telescope: for the sensitivity of Western man “the contemplation of total silence has turned into a negative experience and terrible songs”, perhaps because social life is immersed in a sound universe characterized both by the sounds of the environment and by the sounds produced by a special social and technological context (perhaps less and less by the former and more and more by the latter).
