Opposing certainty may yield faith for some, but opposing faith tends to yield doubt and skepticism, not necessarily certainty. It's the quest for certainty itself that addresses the relationship between philosophies of spirituality and empirical understanding.
Music allows one to contemplate this relationship through the experience of music itself, which adds its own perspective to the relationship, a rather ethereal one.
