Sounds of Nature Sped Up and Slowed Down

Sound is of course vibrations which often contain various tones which are example of cycles happening rapidly. In fact we measure frequency in Hertz or cycles per second. It has always interested me to hear various recordings of natural phenomena played as sounds which are sped up or slowed down. The original might be a sound recording or it might be electromagnetic waves or something else, it doesn’t matter, all waveforms can be turned into sounds. We can extend this to stock, financial and commodity markets as well as nature.

Recently I came across a recording called “Choir of Crickets” which states that it is the sound of crickets slowed down to match the length of life of crickets to humans (elsewhere it says 8 times).

The sound is so close to a human choir that one wonders whether it is a fake. Cricket sounds have long fascinated me because I have noticed that the clicking is at very close to typical human heartbeat speed, say 66 beats per minute or 1.1 per second.

Searching for “sound of crickets slowed down” to see if there is mention of any fraud I found instead that this sound is mentioned in many places. One of these is on a site that is selling CDs with various natural sounds, mainly from NASA recordings. I don’t know anything about what these people are offering (please leave comments if you have some experience of them) but have found previous planetary recordings slowed down to be fascinating.

This site also mentions the various sounds of nature on Earth:

These sounds were remarkably similar to explorations Dr. Thompson had been making into what he  called “Primordial Sounds” – sounds recorded from the human body, breath, heart, blood, organs, etc., as well as nature sound recordings all speeded up, slowed down, formatted to impact the subconscious mind in a positive manner.  Human voice speech patterns speeded up by three times sounds amazingly similar to birds chirping, speeded by 8 times, it sounds like crickets, speeded more it sounds like dolphin squeaks and slowed down, like the ocean.  Recordings of Nature sounds speeded up and slowed down, in turn, showed similar “primordially” recognizable properties: Crickets slowed down sounded like birds chirping, birds slowed down sounded like dolphins and dolphins slowed down sounded like people singing…

Wouldn’t it be interesting to examine the harmonic content of creatures, planets and markets to see if the same structures are present in each?

About Ray Tomes

Ray's career was in computer software development including system software design, economic modeling, investments. He spent 15 years full time on cycles research and has spoken on cycles and related topics at conferences and seminars around the world. He retired at age 42 to study cycles full time and work out “The Formula for the Universe” and as a result developed the Harmonics Theory as an explanation for observed patterns of cycles and structure of the Universe. His current project is the development of CATS (Cycles Analysis & Time Series) software, and collecting and organizing large quantities of time series data and analyzing this data to test and confirm Dewey's findings in an organized way. Interested in all aspects of cycles especially climate change and causes.

    Thank you Sound Guy. These are indeed worth investigating.

    A dear and wise friend told me that she believed that what we think of cycles is really spirals…the end never touching the beginning, therefore forward movement.
