Sound of Movement
Sound of Music is a great movie that has relevance to the title of this buzz. Movement may generate sound of music even though this music could be noisy. Recent studies show that trees generate sounds that aren't audible to us. Milburn was the first human to listen to the inner workings of a plant. What he heard was in fact the collapse of water columns – the tiny pathways that lead the liquid through the tree from the roots – when they begin to dry out and burst. Most of this sound is emitted at ultrasonic levels. Still there is no clear verification of the source of sound, but mostly it is because of the tiny gas bubbles present inside the tree. It is during dry times that trees suffer mostly from the presence of gas bubbles.
Not dry trees only suffer from gas bubbles. Dry sands do the same as well. This is fascinating and agrees well with the thinking that "sound is just as much at work in the interior of a star as is in the organs of a starfish or in the cells of your body". Amazing, and I wonder if the sound of guilt or consciousness behaves similarly. More amazingly, is imprinting sound's invisible vibrations onto the surface of ultra pure water to reveal its once-hidden geometric structures produced bubble patterns rather than wave patterns. Sound produce sand bubbles.
There is a new meaning to sand and sound. You may have noticed the crab on shores and how they produce spherical sand like the spherical sound bubbles. Sand bubblers crabs produce millions of tiny spheres of sand. It is an amazing process. Do crabs have the realization that sound travels in spherical bubbles and they bubble the sand so that they may improve their communication? Just watch this video and be ready for great amazement:
I feel I want to seclude myself and go in an imagination journey. The observation of the resemblance of sand foams and soap foams stirs up my imagination. Nature has its sound and is consistent with it. It takes imagination to see any relationship between distant subjects; yet the spherical bubbles in the trees relate to the spherical pattern of sound movement and the spherical balls crabs produce. Dry trees produce sound bubbles and dry sand only sings in extreme dry conditions.
Sand bubbles look like soap bubbles
We have to understand the limitation of what we know. Does sound move in waves or in bubble? What is the source of sounds in trees? Why only certain sand dunes sing and in dry climates only? When bees buzz or waggle or beat the air with their wings do they produce only different patterns of sound bubbles? It is in these times where we find what we know is getting less the more we know that we need imagination. I can write pages on one selected issue such as if sound travels in waves or bubbles. The more I read, the more I find myself immersed in knowing less.
It is in these times where we find what we know is getting less the more we know that we need imagination Ali Anani, PhDTo know more is to know less. I believe this is one of the most challenging paradoxes of our times. Is the sound of music wave-like or bubble-like is a question that reveals a lot about what we know.
