    No, I mean Elhanan Q. Hackenback. St. Gladys de la Croix??? Never heard of it, and I'm sure I would have by now, if it really existed.

    The version I saw had a long, LONG story about the process of building the organ, which seemed to go on for generations. But of course, the "expected completion date of c.2015" hasn't gotten here yet. Just give them time. But the stop list in your citation is pretty impressive.

    Strange, when I lived in Washinton Heights in New York I never did once run across a Cathedral named St. Gladys de la Croix, but of course, its a fictional Cathedral. Now, if you travel in a southerly direction from Washington Heights you come to a place called Morningside Heights. There is a Cathedral(St. John the Divine) which can easily swallow up and provide the acoustic required for the Elhanan Q. Hackenback organ

    St. John the Divine is just that, in all regards.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Speaking of super-low frequencies, the following experiment is rather fun to "listen" to.

    + YouTube Video

    I just posted that I was able to determine the lowest note as 17 Hz, and upon researching it I was right; 16.31 Hz; pretty dang close, with no training or experience whatsoever.

    Ron Hartigan! While I appreciate the enthusiasm of your posting here,
    I'm going to have to be lowering more than my notes to maybe bring you down a little,
    but I looked here thinking Corno Dolce was back and was adding to a thread he began.
    You are adding to a post that was put up in 2008.

    Human beings, especially whites with ancestors who went through the Dark Ages,
    think of life mostly in terms of themselves, more than other peoples of the world.
    Human senses have a very small range, more about being in the flesh, than scientific.
    The rest of the universe, even the senses of other creatures on this earth,
    are far more dynamic, have a greater spread along sensatory paths,
    but even they aren't part of the eternal flow the exists beyond all of us.

    That's easy to say, and could be seen as a generic approach, so let me be specific.

    You are describing notes at 17Hz, and then 16.31 Hz, with previous mentions of Hertz that actually hurts.
    You know what began as meditative, new age music, often featured the sounds of humpback whales,
    and then humpback whales had recording success on their own, even if they didn't get paid,
    or even get a few tons of left-over fish dumped in front of them.
    Are humpback whales really singing, or are they emitting frequencies?

    And no, you don't have to be a former Marineland employee with training to get into that.

    During WW2 ultra low frequency was experimentally used as a weapon it was known to cause involuntary evacuation of the bowels, unfortunately being none directional it affected every one friend and foe alike, so while it worked it was of no use.

    Ultra low and ultra high frequencies are both very expensive,
    even in terms of the emanations of deep ocean humpback whales.
    And when they release voluntary evacuations of the bowels,
    look what it costs as ambergris.
    I'm not trying to get lumped in with you, JHC.

    No, of course not John I understand!
    As I recall it gave rise to the term 'The trickle down theory" which economists now use to mean something quite different.

    I just received some relayed humpback whale emanations,
    from their orca friends at Marineland.
    It was some whales who were doing the watching,
    as those visiting economists walked out on the pier and trickled down on them.
    They said everyone was complaining about how windy it was,
    a couple were saying the water is cold,
    but only a man from New Zealand found out how deep it was.

    Here's a long number I not only understand but is at hand.
    This is my 1,993rd posting, going to hit 2,000 soon.
    I lost a lot of postings during the domain transition,
    and could have been up, way up, there sooner,
    but that's just the fontrack of my life.

    What worries me is, did the NZ'r jump or was he pushed?

    I've been looking, typing and retyping,
    but this might be the first time I'm lost without a response.

    All those Welland jokes about hanging one off a canal bridge,
    and I'm hung up.
    Our canal was bypassed in the sixties,
    and now that I'm 65 maybe I'm bypassing it too.
