Mysterious Sound article & Ancient sound effects.

Full online article link.

A mysterious sound is driving people insane, it’s spreading — and nobody knows what’s causing it

"July 2014 – PARANORMAL – Some Hum investigators like University of Oklahoma geophysicist David Deming suspect that there’s a global source responsible for the Hum worldwide. “It’s a very, very low wavelength noise, perhaps between 50 or 56 Hz,” Moir told Mic. “And it’s extremely difficult to stop infrasound because it can have a wavelength of up to 10 meters, and you’d need around 2.5 meter thick walls, built with normal materials, to keep it out. It gets into our wooden houses very easily. And part of the reason people have so much trouble identifying the source of it is because of how low frequency the Hum is: It literally moves right through your head before you can figure out which ear picked it up first.”

"Scientific data and anecdotal experiences of the Hum vary so much from region the world that it’s still unclear whether VLF and ELF waves are the source of it,"

"The federally funded investigation into the Windsor Hum and the serious examination of Kohlhase’s research by Connecticut authorities may serve as a beacon of hope for Hum investigators like MacPherson, Moir, Novak and Kohlhase. State-funded tests on Hum-affected regions may yield data that could lead to a real-world solution, rather than conspiracy theories. Until then, developing a unified picture of the Hum is exactly what MacPherson wants to accomplish in British Columbia. By providing one destination for Hum data and testimony, he’s hoping that professional and independent researchers will use the collected data to help develop and execute experiments that could help identify the source of their local Hum. But until someone funds and conducts rigorous tests in an affected region, says Moir, people will continue to use the Hum as an excuse to blame modern technology, from mobile phones to telecom towers to the digital radio bands used by law enforcement. And that aura of pseudoscientific insanity surrounding the Hum has made the job of independent researchers more challenging. “In the past, I’ve contacted my representatives, I’ve contacted my governor,” says Kohlhase. “There’s willful ignorance going on about this problem and the real consequences it has.”

But should researchers like MacPherson and Moir finally pinpoint the local sources of the pain-inducing phenomenon, the Hum may transition from unexplained mystery to unfortunate byproduct of modernity, a fixture of human geography like light pollution. In the meantime, many just want to identify some relief. “A lot of serious researchers don’t want to have their name attached to that, but I’m not a formal academic researcher, and I’m quite willing to lend some credibility to this idea if I can,” says MacPherson. “This phenomenon is real and many people are suffering: I’m just trying to do the best I can to help.”"

It's a small world........... the following link is Kens response to the above article which I feel Mr. W will be interested in as well as others here.  Note the difference in the hum frequency which is between 50 or 56 Hz while sound that is said to effect the human brain in the other article below is 110 Hz.  In conclusion while the hum may be annoying it may not be an intended conspiracy theory to drive humans mad.

Please note that the hum predates mobile phones/towers.


The Ancient Temples Were Designed for 110 Hz Chanting link to full article.

"Emerging archaeology in a new study highlighted by the Old Temples Study Foundation suggests that sound and a desire to harness its effects may have been equally important as vision in the design of humankind's earliest ancient temples and monumental buildings. Six-thousand-year-old ancient temples are giving up acoustic clues for modern scientists.  Intriguing new research on ancient temples in Malta and highlighted by the Old Temples Study Foundation is resonating through international archaeology and interdisciplinary classics research. Reaching beyond the scope of traditional archaeology, a multi-disciplinary approach has opened a new dimension for the study of the ancient world."

""There is a small niche in what we call 'The Oracle Chamber', and if someone with a deep voice speaks inside, the voice echoes all over the hypogeum. The resonance in the ancient temple is something exceptional. You can hear the voice rumbling all over." As anyone who sings in the shower knows, sound echoing back and amplifying itself from hard walls can do unusual things. That effect is magnified several times over in the stone chambers."

"A consortium called The PEAR Proposition: Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research are pioneers in the field of archaeo-acoustics, merging archaeology and sound science. Directed by Physicist Dr. Robert Jahn, the PEAR group set out in 1994 to test acoustic behavior in megalithic sites such as Newgrange and Wayland's Smithy in the UK.

They found that the ancient chambers all sustained a strong resonance at a sound frequency between 95 and 120 hertz: well within the range of a low male voice.

In subsequent OTSF testing, stone rooms in ancient temples in Malta were found to match the same pattern of resonance, registering at the frequency of 110 or 111 hz. This turns out to be a significant level for the human brain.


Whether it was deliberate or not, the people who spent time in such an environment were exposing themselves to vibrations that impacted their minds.
"

"Sound scientist, Prof. Daniel Talma of the University of Malta explains:
"At certain frequencies you have standing waves that emphasize each and other waves that de-emphasize each other. The idea that it was used thousands of years ago to create a certain trance -- that's what fascinates me."
Dr. Ian A. Cook of UCLA and colleagues published findings in 2008 of an experiment in which regional brain activity in a number of healthy volunteers was monitored by EEG through different resonance frequencies.

Findings indicated that at 110 hz the patterns of activity over the prefrontal cortex abruptly shifted, resulting in a relative deactivation of the language center and a temporary switching from left to right-sided dominance related to emotional processing.

People regularly exposed to resonant sound in the frequency of 110 or 111 hz would have been "turning on" an area of the brain that bio-behavioral scientists believe relates to mood, empathy and social behavior."

There is a lot more information regarding ancient temples and sounds on the website.  There is even mention of Quetzalcoatl.

As you say, acoustics seem to have been a major factor in the design of some megalithic structures.

One of the ideas I've been tinkering with is the possibility that some ancient rites were designed to be delivered at a certain frequency, for example...a ritual for a fertile harvest, may contain some of the below to increase the yield...

Ottawa
Two researchers at the University of Ottawa did trials with high-frequency vibrations in wheat. Plants responded best to a frequency of 5000 cycles a second. They were baffled and could not explain why audible sound had nearly doubled wheat harvests.

Canada
Peter Belton, researcher for Canada's Department of Agriculture, controlled the European corn-borer moth by broadcasting ultrasonic waves. 50% of the corn was damaged in the control plot, and only 5% in the plot with sound. The sound plot also had 60% fewer larvae and was 3” taller on average.

New York
George Milstein found that a continuous low hum at 3000 cycles per second accelerated the growth of most of his plants and even caused some of them to bloom six full months ahead of their normal schedule. On the other hand, he was quite adamant that music for plants couldn't possibly have an effect, as they "can't hear."

Aye Mordman. Some of the old temples were constructed to amplify certain sounds and voices. Gave the speaker a ghostly presence.

Better batten down your banana palm mate, big breeze coming your way!

Thank you for the link Mordae. I signed up for the free book as I have an interest in certain things effect plants. When I plant seeds I do so at the appropriate time of the moon cycle for them and I do talk to them as I believe it does make a difference.

I am wondering if modern constructions grouped together are creating the unexplained hum not by design; more by accident. Why would the hum be heard in some areas but not others?

No worries Very Happy

You might also want to take a look at the Bio-Dynamics growing system. As well as using the moon cycles, it also uses the position of the planets. Some of the preparations are quite interesting as well.

It's certainly possible, but you'd need to do a lot of cross-referencing to see what new developments (if any) occurred in the area immediately before the noises started. You'd also need to include any underground workings (ductings, gas lines etc) as well as any change in fluid/energy volumes (say increase in volumes through sewage lines or increase in electrical flow). It'd be a bit of a major project.

@ Rock...yeah, it was a bit breezy, although Te Aroha got the worst of it locally.

Sounds interesting so will look into Bio-Dynamics, thank you.

Hmm yes too much of a major project!
