Isn't it just that we're getting a bit taller? I mean the clouds appear to be lower to me now then when I was six - but I'm pushing 5'11'' I'll have you know!

That would be the essence of a Daily Mail science journalist's interpretation on this particular study.

Sorry - I still haven't read the article yet. Don't usually comment this quickly - I think it's the insomnia...

Yeah, it's 400 years too late for the poor woman. Unfortunately, this is still going on today. A woman in Nepal was recently accused of witchcraft and burnt alive. We left the Middle Ages, but the Middle Ages never left us.

it's just a lack of common sense. i don't care what your religion says (and no i'm not agnostic or atheist) but shouldn't logic kick in and say NO! It's just a poor old woman. i know some communities are without access to television, computers and hell, science text books , but seriously? then again they still sentence women to stoning in the Arab world, so it could just be a gender thing...

This idea of Stonehenge being inspired by a sound effect of interference reminds me of the theory that some Precolombine pyramids were designed to mimic the sound of the Quetzal bird, by clapping the hands next to the stairway.

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...

Quite a few videos demonstrate this, here's a good one. It's also interesting to note that the Maya believed "whistling dwarfs" built the pyramids at Chichen Itza. I wonder if there's a connection to the Mexican whistling toad, and if it has psychedelic properties like the Sonoran desert toad -- it's a little theory I wouldn't mind pursuing further.

Here's the sound of one hand clapping:

That would be the aluxes.

In any case, it's nice to see archeology is taking into consideration the importance sound had with our ancestors.
