In ancient times the northernmost region of the habitable world - hence, any distant, unknown or mysterious land.

Forget the Big Bang -- it's more a Deep Hum

Forget the Big Bang it's more a Deep Hum

The Big Bang that gave birth to the Universe sounded less like the mother of all explosions than a jumbo jet flying over your house, a US physicist believes.

John Cramer of the University of Washington in Seattle has created a computer model of the likely audio frequencies generated by the start to the cosmos.

Research into the Big Bang earned US scientists John Mather and George Smoot the Nobel Prize for Physics on Tuesday.

Cramer bases his model on temperature data sent by a NASA satellite, the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP).

His calculation is based on the frequencies that rampaged through the Universe during its first 760,000 years, when it was a cosmic stripling measuring just 18 million light years across.

The frequencies would have been too low to be heard by the human ear, so Cramer has scaled them up 100,000 billion billion times to give an approximation.

His reconstruction can be heard online here .

The long hum becomes progressively deeper in tone because the sound waves become longer, and thus lower in frequency, as they range across the fast-expanding Universe, the British weekly New Scientist said, in a report on Cramer's work.

Well these scientists are just discovering this hum, or as buddhists and hindus call it 'Ohm' which is the word.
Christians now know it as Christ, which they believe to be the word become flesh.
I do find that the scientific community take the long way around sometimes, don't you?
Which is ok so long as the discoveries they make on their path are used for good, but alas untill man transcends his base instincts, he is destined to repeat the same mistakes, over and over, since there is nothing new under the sun.

Then if you notice the deliberate mistake I used the word 'Ohm', which is actually related to electricity anyway same difference really, as when you listen to electricity going through cables it makes the sound 'OM' due to the fact that cables are physical matter, where as electric is energy.
All energy becomes matter, matter becomes energy, which is basically how the word is able to become flesh.
Am I making any sence here?
After all it is magic mushroom season and we can all get carried away, maybe this explains things better than me, and here is a strangely gone off the point christian version.
As for me its back to the shrooms!
