hahaha! You'll pardon me for laughing at the geological musings of a therapist.<quoted text>
"According to therapist Reneau Z. Peurifoy, the supposed causes of human sensitivity to earthquakes are similar to the causes of earthquake sensitivity in animals. When pressure builds up prior to an earthquake, the quartz crystal in Earth's interior is deformed and creates an electrical charge. This phenomenon, known as the piezoelectric effect, can send electrical signals to animals. It is theorised that some earthquake sensitives may also be reacting to a change in the electromagnetism of an area caused by rising stresses on geological faults. There is also the possibility that radon is emitted prior to an earthquake, enough to be noticed by sensitive humans.
- where is the organ that senses these pieqzoelectric charges? If animals had this sensory apparatus, we should be able to discover it.
- I would give you some credit if you claimed it was through ELF EM waves, to be honest
- uhm...earthquakes release pressure. They build up over long periods of time and then release it. So the hypothesis above is pretty wonky.
Thanks for your concern.One earthquake sensitive mentioned in sensitive Cal Orey's The Man Who Predicts Earthquakes: Jim Berkland, maverick geologist suggested that the different crystal makeups of different regions account for distinct sounds from different areas. She thought that pressure also determined sound, and provided an example, saying how granite sounds were different from those of quartz."
The article itself is an attempt to debunk. But the fact is humans are animals, too, right? Some things we used to pay attention to have been civilized out of us.
That piezoelectric effect is also the reason for those hums you hear about.
Those are actual physical phenomenon. Like I said, you are trained to ignore them. Until a professor tells you they exist.
Every thing is a tuned circuit. All tuned circuits are affected by their environment.
Pay more attention to those nagging uneases you get. Saved many of your ancestors. You don't freak, you just let yourself be alerted.
You're not going to outrun Godzilla, anyhow. Just dodge him the best you can.
I'm not getting any fame or fortune for this.
I never know when an Earthquake is coming, Dave. I usually don't even know one is happening and instead think I'm having a stroke or getting dizzy. Then I see stuff around me moving - like hanging lights and curtains in the absence of wind.
So either I don't have this special detection organ or I ignore it totally.
