Norma is a tragedia lirica or opera in two acts by Vincenzo Bellini with libretto by Felice Romani after Norma, ossia L'infanticidio by Alexandre Soumet. First produced at La Scala on 26 December 1831, it is generally regarded as an example of the supreme height of the bel canto tradition. "Casta diva" was one of the most familiar arias of the nineteenth century.
A Norma is a body of individual enterprises (or organizations) that comply with the application of the Ka Tota Philosophy. They operate from a purified capitalist system. A Cottage Norma means a Norma that serves a smaller community in the nation it is established in. A Project Norma means that Norma established to serve a larger area than that of the cottage Norma in the same nation as its cottage Norma. A Resident Norma means a Norma established to serve nationwide or statewide (as it may apply in the USA) in the same nation as its cottage Norma and project Norma. A Central Norma means a Norma established to serve the entire world through Resident Normas, Project Normas and Cottage Normas. A Nucleus Norma means that Norma established to serve Central Normas. Since one central Norma is a world, a Nucleus creates many worlds along the lines of the United Nations International Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activity. Many central Normas served by the same nucleus Norma constitute a universe.

If music in general is an imitation of history, opera in particular is an imitation of human willfulness; it is rooted in the fact that we not only have feelings but insist upon having them at whatever cost to ourselves. The quality common to all the great operatic roles, e.g., Don Giovanni, Norma, Lucia, Tristan, Isolde, Br?nnhilde, is that each of them is a passionate and willful state of being. In real life they would all be bores, even Don Giovanni.
