I love synchronicity.
I was listening to Natioonal Public radio (NPR) just now and there was an interview with an acoustic ecologist named Gordon Hempton who is on a quest to preserve natural silence in our national parks. To quote from their blog, http://onesquareinch.org/
“One Square Inch of Silence was designated on Earth Day 2005 (April 22, 2005) to protect and manage the natural soundscape in Olympic Park’s backcountry wilderness. The logic is simple; if a loud noise, such as the passing of an aircraft, can impact many square miles, then a natural place, if maintained in a 100% noise-free condition, will also impact many square miles around it. It is predicted that protecting a single square inch of land from noise pollution will benefit large areas of the park.”
It is the music of the Universe.
