Two things I noticed today [6/16/21]

Bill Murphy had a link in Anomalist’s daily listings that reminded me of an item I dealt with in the 1970s:

Saturday Review magazine (now extinct) had  a story about an academic in Maine who had contrived a wooden probe or “needle” that he used to extract sounds from edifices like walls or those mentioned by Martin Clemins in the Daily Grail piece Bill linked.

The professor – I did a piece on the story for The National Enquirer (and will dig it up if there’s any interest) – was able to extract sounds from places where something dynamic occurred – a yelling match, a murder, anything raucous.

He applied his “needle” and attendant apparatus to the surface of the place he knew had been the occasion of some noisy misadventures and was able to record some of the sounds, voices et cetera.

The procedure turned into an academic discipline known (as Murphy’s link tells us) as archaeoacoustics, an interesting side-bar to archaeology certainly.

Then, as was on the porch this morning with my dog, I watched as robins were interacting with each other – tail flippings and tweets (of the non-Twitter kind).

This made me wonder what happened to the scientific attempts to decipher bird-talk?

I don’t recall anything that indicated any success in determining what birds or any other animals were talking about. Yes, there’s been some idea as to what dolphins are “saying” to their fellow dolphins and some humans, but nothing definitive, as far as I know.

The question is “How can we humans hope to communicate with extraterrestrials should they show up someday – and they will (maybe)?”

ETs would surely have a language and linguistics that are not unlike bird-talk or dolphin speak.

And don’t get me started on telepathy. That’s a figment of science fiction. The human mind may send out signals of some kind, but they’d be so jumbled – as noted here in previous postings – as to be worthless as means of communication.

(I plan a piece on quantum interactions within the human brain and biology upcoming, thanks to Ron’s input here in comments.)

That’s it/ Obviously I’m sloughing off and not pushing to think hard and long about anything. It’s the weather, mostly, and a bout of spring fever too I think.
