Musical Stones Update

!Click Stone update.

Andre Willers
9 May 2014
Synopsis :
Stonehenge experimentally found to be sound generators .
Discussion :
1.General :
See all previous posts about rock sound generators and detectors , as well as the !click language that evolved to handle it .
I told you so !
2.Listen to it yourself :
These sites are all over Europe :
Malta , etc .
Stonehenge had been settled since about 8000 BC . Then developed into a cultural center and earthquake prediction HQ .
These constructions had very pragmatic motivations .
Usually earthquake predictions , but also relative advantage .
3.In the beginning (12 000- 10 000) years ago , everybody was at high risk . Information was shared .
As the risk decreased , selfish considerations grew . Paradoxically , more assets were expended to ensure even small relative advantages  . Wooden pillars were no longer sufficient . Fancy rocks with sound transducers became part of the arms-race .
Cooperation reduced . Ley-lines were disrupted to deny information . See appendix A
All sides embarked on building of stone monoliths to wring the slightest advantage .
See Appendix B .
4. “British” and “French”
After the tsunami forming the English channel (circa 8 000 years ago) see Appendix C
British (island) interests diverged from mainland interests.
Politics 8 000 years ago does not seem to be much different from politics today .
While simple wooden posts would be perfectly adequate for earthquake warnings , regional competition led to arms-races for even slight advantages .
Hence , stone-megaliths are end stages of the Neolithic civilizations .
 Also , they are extremely sensitive predictors and sensors of earth disturbances .
But very expensive .
See Carnac : a “French” Maginot line answer to “English”  Stonehenge .
Sigh : behaviour patterns laid down 8 000 years ago . Still going strong .
5.Cities as slums of the Neolithic .
As earthquakes and tsunamis tapered off after the end of the ice age , the “Science-cities” were abandoned as unnecessary .
Cities at the time were seen as a distasteful necessity. (Only when agriculture made large populations inevitable were cities developed as the slums of the Neolithic .)
6. The whole shebang collapsed in a welter of tears .
And so it goes , over and over again .
Ruinously yours

Click and Ley-Lines
Click and Ley-Lines
Andre Willers
21 May 2011

Ley lines were acoustic waveguides built by very pragmatic neolithic click engineers .
The system included amplifiers , boosters and multiplexors .

Discussion :

Sound from stones :
Actually being done by a present by a Click master .
Listen to it : Google "Pino Sciola" . Many Utube examples .

Pinuccio Sciola is a Click-speaker .
He can literally hear rock sing .
See "Click ---" entries .2010 , 2011

Look at his left-hand ear in
It has the typical double-earlobe , but a very well-defined earlobe waveguides leading to what appears to be another earhole . His right-hand ear is not nearly as well developed .

The videos also shows him listening with the left ear held next to the stone .
While he could probably hear sub-vocalizations in his youth , without training he probably thought he slightly bonkers and wisely kept quiet .
By now , high-frequency hearing would have degenerated with age .

His genome should be declared a world-heritage site , or at least patented .

The Technology :

Sound-Generators :
Photo's of his rock sound generators are very informative :
Sound is mainly created by the elasticity of the rock . Grooving and fissures are essential features .
Compare this to megalithic remains . Many features attributed to weathering are the remains sound-generating features .

Of note is the Fissured Monolith . Essentially a sound-transformer . Step-down , step-up depending on relative frequencies , fine-tuned by grooving the rock .

Circular structures captures faint sounds and amplifies them . This is a well-known effect (Whisper walls) . But note that the whisper heard is "louder" than the source .
The information is enhanced by the circular feedback wave-interference , as well as by the Cocktail-party effect in the human brain .

Speculation : not all humans are equally good at the Cocktail-party trick . The talented ones would have genes from ancestors who were selected (bred) to hear sensible signals from a chaotic background in Neolithic times (acolytes)

Sound Transmission Lines (Ley Lines)
The physics of this is well-understood .
1.The straighter the better.
2.No major obstructions , especially trees .
3.Boundary guides need not be contiguous .
That means trees or regular rock pylons can be used , dramatically cutting down on costs in treeless regions .
The typical leyline would have looked like an arched footpath , with a tunnel of trees around and over it . A Green Waveguide . Tended and cultured .
The infrastructure support formed villages around it . This is where the name comes from : villages close to the first-discovered ley lines had names ending in –ley or -ly .

Booster stations :
Likewise , look for booster stations near places with the following in their names :
Strong comes from a prehistoric Germanic *stranggaz (its immediateGermanic siblings have now died out, but German streng ‘severe’ is quite closely related). It went back ultimately to a base denoting ‘stiffness’ or‘tautness’, which also produced English string.
Garbh, Gar, Garry (Gaelic), rough, rugged, harsh.
Garth .

There should be circles of standing stones nearby , in Europe and England .

Receiver Sites :
Where signals ended up from all over , were decoded , decisions made and the resultant orders sent out back along the network .

A busy hub like Stone-henge would be more like an artificial capital like Washington DC or Brazilia in our terms . There would be at least two major circles of stone or wooden construction , with many smaller ones .

It was a technology , with the engineers having the inestimable advantage of directly hearing the signals .

Why ?
What was in for them ?
Sheer survival .
We think in human-relative terms of military and economic advantages in our fat , carefree civilization .
But 10 000 – 6 000 years ago , Europe was rocked by the end of the Ice-age .
They were battling for survival against nature and each other .
Besides earthquakes , tsunamis from broken ice-dams destroyed communities without warning , releasing floods of desperate survivors .

Coordination of warnings and resources was vital to anyone surviving .
This means communication .

The ley-lines were like telegraph lines during a time of total catastrophe ,
lasting for thousands of years .

Could our civilization do the same ?

Seismic-to-sound transducer .
Seismic-to-Sound Transducer .
Andre Willers
21 Jul 2011

Synopsis :
Earthquake-swarms can be detected and their course predicted .
This was done at Gobekli Tepe . Many other sites should be around .
See "National Geographic" June 2011 p44 ("Birth of religion")

Discussion :
See "Click and Ley-lines" May 2011

The physics :
A massive monolithic T-shaped rock with one leg of the upper T buried in resonant semi-elastic rock wall (equivalent of landfill) .
A series of such T-shaped sound generators in an elliptical wall focuses the sound waves on the foci .
At the foci are precisely shaped T-monoliths larger than the sound generators .
These act as transformers to shift frequencies down to human-audible range .
Having two foci makes it directional on a two-dimensional surface .

What happens :
Seismic waves resonating at different frequencies in the "land-fill" mortared elliptical wall are converted into sound waves by the small T's , which are then focused onto the large T's at the foci . This also downshifts the frequency via resonances into human-audible range . Humans with suitably sensitive hearing and sense of harmony can then hear seismic activity and extrapolate harmonies , giving long-term warning .

Earth-quake swarms like in the Middle-East lend themselves to this .

How to test this ?
1.Build a full size physical copy .
2.Model it in analog . A circuit can be constructed from the normal elements as an analogue , but a memristor must be included . A real wall will act as a memristor and eventually become insensitive , needing a new installation .
The number of successive elliptical mortared rockwalls (important that rocks making up wall be loosely(ie elastically) bound to give resonances ) act like antennae and capacitors .
Small T's are microphones and large T's at foci are mike-speaker .

3. Model it digitally .
As above .

Earthquake prediction :
This is a real prediction system that has been used as such before .
This has inherently a human component for pattern recognition and extrapolation .
It can be used in conjunction with "Earthquake damage prediction" Jun 2011 to get rules .

I do not know if it will be of much use in single , once-off events , but it definitely works for swarms of earthquakes .

The fun bit : speculations :
See "Acropolis and Catastrophe Theory" Aug 2009
See "Why is the Parthenon not round" Jul 2009
See "Click and Ley-lines" May 2011

These systems were constructed more-or-less simultaneously to meet the dangers of seismic activity and tsunamis about 9 600 BC at the end of the Ice Age.

It does seem as if the knowledge of rock sound-generators were applied to seismic activity and not vice-versa .

A seismic sensor has to be a massive installation , whereas rock-sound can (and is) being done by single individuals .

This means technology transfer was from West to East .

Delicious !
The kick-start for Agriculture was the need to build and maintain massive Earthquake prediction centers like Gobekli Tepe .
The physics require massive installations , which cannot be developed piecemeal .
There are similar installation in Crete , Malta , Egypt , France , etc

Notice that if you rotate the T-pillar around it's own axis , you get a Minoan pillar .
The palace at Knossus and the Parthenon were designed to sing in earthquake swarms for those with the ears to hear .

Since these were prediction centers , rapid communication was not as important as in the west , where tsunami's were the main threat .

These underground waterways were the fundamental infrastructure of the Middle-East Originally designed as antennae for earthquake prediction systems , their rapid information transmission systems were used for thousands of years .
Click messages . Underground sonic semaphores . Water as well as a bonus .
Q'anat means Double !Click .
See "Ancient Babylonian Information Technology" Mar 2009

That is why the Mongols destroyed them .
The Mongol relative advantage was rapid communication .
Their population was too small to conquer . So they had to reduce populations and cut their communications .

They were well aware of the potential of the Q'anat system , and deliberately set out to destroy it . The Middle East never recovered . The communication system was the most important element of it .

But the earthquake prediction system can be restored at modest cost . The old knowledge is scattered , but not completely lost .

Look at the nexus points of old Q'anats for significant ruins and scripts especially in Akkadian .

Why Empires developed in the Middle East from the Semi-arid areas .
They had Q'anats , and the high-water table civilizations did not .
So , initially , they had fast internal communication .
See "Small World model"
Cf Medes and Persians .

Present USA incursion :
Typically , they have not learned from history . Local resistance is coordinated via the q'anat communication systems .

No need to blow them up (This will be genocide , a-la-Mongol). Just render them useless as communication channels by adding noise in sound and water waves .
Allowing the water to flow in the Middle-East is it's own message .

Why you will soon be needing this technology :
It is closely related to the end of the ice-age .
Tidal effects from the Moon causes vertical currents that eat away at ice and permafrost from the bottom up . This is because water is denser than ice . The barycenter exacerbates it by a factor of 15-20 (exactly like tides)

But the removal of ice-masses from the arctic and Antarctic unsquashes the earth globe on the rotational axis . Destabilizing faults on longitudinal lines .
See "Earthquakes and Volcanos III" May 2011 .

Earthquake magnitude distribution as per power law . Ie , some big ones , then many small swarms . The Big Ones are too bad , but the swarms of smaller ones can be predicted and compensated for .

This is what Gobekli Tepe did .

Die sooner or die later .
One of god's little jokes .
It does not matter who survives .

North Sea 'Atlantis' uncovered
The moment Britain became an island
A prehistoric "Atlantis" in the North Sea may have been abandoned after being hit by a 5m tsunami 8,200 years ago.

The wave was generated by a catastrophic subsea landslide off the coast of Norway.

Analysis suggests the tsunami over-ran Doggerland, a low-lying landmass that has since vanished beneath the waves.

"It was abandoned by Mesolithic tribes about 8,000 years ago, which is when the Storegga slide happened," said Dr Jon Hill from Imperial College London.

The impact... would have been massive - comparable to the Japanese tsunami of 2011”

The wave could have wiped out the last people to occupy this island.

The research has been submitted to the journal Ocean Modelling and is being presented at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna this week.

Dr Hill and his Imperial-based colleagues Gareth Collins, Alexandros Avdis, Stephan Kramer and Matthew Piggott used computer simulations to explore the likely effects of the Norwegian landslide.

He told BBC News: "We were the first ever group to model the Storegga tsunami with Doggerland in place. Previous studies have used the modern bathymetry (ocean depth)."

As such, the study gives the most detailed insight yet into the likely impacts of the huge landslip and its associated tsunami wave on this lost landmass.

During the last Ice Age, sea levels were much lower; at its maximum extent Doggerland connected Britain to mainland Europe.

I think they are probably right, because the tsunami would have been a catastrophic event”

Prof Vince Gaffney
University of Birmingham
It was possible for human hunters to walk from what is now northern Germany across to East Anglia.

But from 20,000 years ago, sea levels began to rise, gradually flooding the vast landscape.

By around 10,000 years ago, the area would still have been one of the richest areas for hunting, fishing and fowling (bird catching) in Europe.

A large freshwater basin occupied the centre of Doggerland, fed by the River Thames from the west and by the Rhine in the east. Its lagoons, marshes and mudflats would have been a haven for wildlife.

"In Mesolithic times, this was paradise," explained Bernhard Weninger, from the University of Cologne in Germany, who was not involved with the present study.

But 2,000 years later, Doggerland had become a low-lying, marshy island covering an area about the size of Wales.

The North Sea has given up wonderful prehistoric finds, like these bone points now kept at the National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, The Netherlands
This shaft-hole pick made from antler was found near Rotterdam in the Netherlands

The nets of North Sea fishing boats have pulled up a wealth of prehistoric bones belonging to the animals that once roamed this prehistoric "Garden of Eden".

But the waters have also given up a smaller cache of ancient human remains and artefacts from which scientists have been able to obtain radiocarbon dates.

And they show that none of these relics of Mesolithic habitation on Doggerland occur later than the time of the tsunami.

The Storegga slide involved the collapse of some 3,000 cubic km of sediment.

"If you took that sediment and laid it over Scotland, it would cover it to a depth of 8m," said Dr Hill.

Given that the majority of Doggerland was by this time less than 5m in height, it would have experienced widespread flooding.

"It is therefore plausible that the Storegga slide was indeed the cause of the abandonment of Doggerland in the Mesolithic," the team writes in their Ocean Modelling paper.

Dr Hill told BBC News: "The impact on anyone who was living on Doggerland at the time would have been massive - comparable to the Japanese tsunami of 2011."

But Bernhard Weninger suspects that Doggerland had already been vacated by the time of the Storegga slide.

"There may have been a few people coming with boats to fish, but I doubt it was continuously settled," he explained.

"I think it was so wet by this time that the good days of Doggerland were already gone."

Prof Vince Gaffney, an archaeologist at the University of Birmingham, said: "I think they (the researchers) are probably right, because the tsunami would have been a catastrophic event."

But he stressed that the archaeological record was sparse, and explained that two axes from the Neolithic period (after Storegga) had been retrieved from the North Sea's Brown Banks area.

It is possible these were dropped from a boat - accidentally or as a ritual offering - but it is also unclear precisely when Doggerland finally succumbed to the waves.

The ancient landmass of Doggerland took several thousand years to flood
"Even after major volcanic eruptions, people go back, sometimes because they can't afford not to but also because the resources are there," said Prof Gaffney, who has authored a book, Europe's Lost World: The Rediscovery of Doggerland.

The tsunami would also have affected what is now Scotland and the eastern coast of England, as well as the northern coast of continental Europe.

The wave that hit the north-east coast of Scotland is estimated to have been some 14m high, though it is unclear whether this area was inhabited at the time.

But waves measuring some 5m in height would have hit the eastern coast of England, and there is good evidence humans were in this area 8,000 years ago.

Much of this region would also have been low-lying, suggesting the impact on Mesolithic people who depended substantially on coastal resources such as shellfish, would have been significant here, too.
