Sounds there is a treasure beneath

Sounds there is a treasure beneath

The story of sound is truly amazing. You hear sand singing with different tones. You hear leaves-cutting ants making different sounds. You hear the bursting of seeds coming out of their shell. You hear the sound of trapped air in a test tube if you heat the trapped air. You hear the sound of logic and the sound of possibilities in their varying tones. You hear birds singing or weeping and you hear the sound of your conscious. You hear the sound of bees buzzing.

It is amazing how much sound plays a role in our lives and sometimes beyond our expectations and understandings. We are limited by our "boundaries' to hear, but limited sounds because there are sounds that exist even though we can't hear them.

Is producing sounds purposeful and if yes, then what purpose? It might sound as a trivial thing for leaves-cutting ants that they produce sounds while doing their job. Not at all and finding to find the purpose many striking things emerge. So striking they are that the more we know about, the more we want to know.

Ants cut leaves and make sounds to alert other ants that they have a crop to carry to their nest in the soil. It is a way of communication? Once in the nest, the ants grind up the leaves and inoculate them with algae so that algae may grow and have a symbiotic relationship with the ants. Ants don't have ears and may be they respond to sound through their vibrations.

whys and whys at different scales. Is our unknowing is fractal? I dare say it is.

Ali Anani, PhD


Ninety percents of plant roots have a symbiotic relationship with algae. Both ants and plant roots need algae to develop symbiotic relationship with them. Is this a coincidence? Roots are fractal. Algae threads or mycelia are fractal. Do fractals talk to fractals only? Plants are not only connecting directly underground, but also indirectly through the mycelia of algae. It is the fractal connection that makes interconnections the rule. These sounds in line with what @ Sara Jacobovici wrote in her buzz "I have been fortunate to experience this miraculous interconnectedness here on beBee and I think the element in nature that sustains this relationship is choice". @EmΓ­lia M. Ludovino wrote:”BEES SERVE AS IMAGES OF THE MIRACULOUS INTERCONNECTEDNESS OF LIFE.Β The intricate intercellular structure that secretes the golden essence of life is an image of the network of invisible nature that relates all things to each other in an ordered harmonious pattern.” It is my turn to ask if the invisible nature of all things becomes visible, but only for many more to become invisible.

Sounds there is a treasure beneath

Plants lose water from their leaves and roots in the soil provide water to the leaves to substitute the lost water. In its journey up the water might have a "water clot" forming. You see air bubbles forming in the ascending water. Some plants produce sound when these air bubble burst. Is it a call for help, as leaves-cutting ants do? Is there a bigger purpose that is hidden from us? Air bubbles will stop the flow of water and the plant will eventually die. So, how surviving plant manage to cope with this dilemma?

Research has revealed some fascinating facts. Plants that engage in frequent bursting of trapped air and then repairing the busted part do survive. It is a dynamic process and its frequency may adapt with the need for shortening or elongating the time cycle of bursting and repairing. The bursting sounds carry a significant message: damage has occurred and it is time to repair. It is the continuous flow of information to do things that plants fail to do don't survive. Does this explain what @Deb Helfrich wrote "the process of learning to keep love flowing even when you aren't in an easy vibration with the other person?" Humans have bursts of their communication. We need to consider adopting a bust-repair cycle to keep communication alive. It is not only communication; it is more important to keep it as a dynamic process.

Next time you hear your conscious remember that behind the sound you hear there may be a hidden treasure beneath. Uncover it. The iceberg of your sound is worthy of exploring.

Dear Deb Lange- if your ever produce a video that is narrated by you and based on your great comment I request you to alert me to it. I tell readers that listening to Deb shall sharpen their listening and all other senses.

I honestly believe we have senses to do just that Vivian Chapman. The power of sensing is very strong and losing one strengthens the others.

Dear Anees Zaidi- I have just published my new buzz on Ideas Transferring- I hope it transfers my mind to the readers

Yess, dear Anees Zaidi and I meant it to ask the question to throw the issue of sound substitution. You are very correct.

You knocked and opened my mind dear Mohamed Amroussi. How about deaf ears?

Deb Helfrich- beneath my iceberg right now is a load of gratitude for you for writing such a scholar and moving comment. I am so glad that the buzz meets your approval because I quoted you in the buzz. Your mind and words are treasures for us to uncover.

We all struggle for survival dear Mohamed Amroussi. May be it is the survival of the "fittest sound".

Oh brother Anees Zaidi- great observation that shows how styles of life may differ. These differences either make us unite in one heart because we build symbiotic relationship or,....... You know better.

Franci Eugenia Hoffman- "Sound communicates to all forms of life creating continuity and connectivity"- this is stunning writing.

Franci 🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador

Sound is energy that travels through air or water. Sound communicates to all forms of life creating continuity and connectivity. An exceptional observation relevant to sound and nature Ali Anani.

"Sitting in a quite place was his burst - repair cycle to hear his conscious".dear Anees Zaidi this is my treasure. Great and very eloquent segment of your comment. I wonder if you would relate this buzz to your comment on hammering the watermelon and listening to what sound you get. The watermelon with yellow bottom sitting on it for sometime in the shadow may generate the lovely sound of a good watermelon. Not only we need to sit alone in a quiet place occasionally, but also watermelon needs the same.

Not in the distant future I shall "cover" you with a buzz. I hear a sound prompting me to do, dear debasish majumder

Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee

Irene Hackett- I hear the sound of a great buzz from you. Yes, capture the minutes and repair it by publishing it. Behind the bursting, there is a noble process going in your brain cells. I am confident that your next buzz shall be different......with highest possible quality.

Sara Jacobovici- as much as writing this post proved challenging to simplify scientific finding; still, it was your last buzz that planted the idea seed of this post. I hear the voice of your words and I am now searching for the treasure beneath them.

The only sound I was conscious of the whole time I read your Buzz Ali Anani was my holding my breath. You have produced a wonderful work Dr. Ali (not your first one) that I think has sent sound waves from the "voice of your internal sound" across the spheres. I will return to this piece a few more times and look forward to engaging further. With deepest gratitude.
