Well, Duh!

A newspaper reports American researchers on the effects of low-frequency sound waves such as can be caused by passing traffic. They can, apparently, create neurological phenomena that might explain the experience of ghosts. It concludes that the scientists found the same effect from large organ pipes, which might, the paper said, explain feelings of “spirituality” in churches. And yes, two plus two might make four. Can these well-meaning researchers really be that ignorant of priestcraft through the ages? Do they imagine that religious architecture was and is about anything other than such neural hacks? From temples through oracles to cathedrals, the name of the game has always been the use of ultrasonics and other devices in order to separate the punters from their money. “Might”, forsooth!
