The day the earth screamed

Updated on January 21, 2016

The cries of the earth

There are many different theories as to what the mysterious sound throughout the world could be. The tone is different in some places than it is in others however one similarity between all of the noises is the touching deep cry that sounds through when you listen closely. Call it apocalyptic, science fiction or just plain scientific these noises have many people swearing the end is near. Elchin Khalilov wrote an article attributing the strange noises to a possibility of two different theories. One theory pointed to the sky and the other to the earth. The analysis of Khalilov was that many of the sounds have a range that is not even audible to people. It rings in a low tone that is difficult for the human ear to pick up.It is mentioned that there are many natural occurrences that can produce similar low level noises including earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes and other storms. Yet it is not thought that any of these normal phenomena are causing the frequency that has been recorded. As a result the hypotheses that was considered is that an increase in solar activity that resulted in solar flares might be the cause of the noises that people are beginning to attribute to an apocalyptic warning. The other theory is that the sounds that people are hearing in the sky are actually beginning in the earths core. Scientists are aware that currently deep withing the earth there is a magnetic shift happening at the poles. The consensus is that due to this existing phenomena the sounds that some people are hearing and reporting could be a result of this shift. These theories do make sense and explain the possibility of the fear inducing noises that have been heard, however the thing that has not yet been considered is that these noises may actually mean something. Native Americans believed that everything on earth being alive had a spirit and therefore a voice if people were to listen. Science has proven that trees make noise and there is a possibility that these noises are attributed to whether the trees are happy or in pain. It is therefore extremely possible that the noises that are being heard could be the earths way of saying that it is in pain. A scream that is so loud it is produced in a low tone that most people would find it difficult to even hear. When you listen to the video the sounds that were recorded are chilling, they sound like cries or screams so severe that it would make the hairs on your arm and neck stand on end. I can only imagine how terrifying these sounds would be to hear in person. Perhaps the earth is crying a warning. Perhaps it is a scientific phenomenon. or perhaps what we consider science fiction is a lot closer to reality than most would admit and the noises of the apocalypse are becoming very real. Whatever the explanation may be the problem is that nobody has been able to say definitively what these noises are, and for most this is a mystery that is screaming for an explanation.

Apocalyptic Sounds Around the World

Do plants really talk?

It seems a little strange to think that a plant or a tree would be able to cry for help however, scientists have actually found a way to prove that this is in fact something they are capable of. They did this by conducting an experiment where they monitored three healthy plants and there response when a bug (aphid) that is a danger to them was put on one of the plants.The plant that was in danger released a mixture of chemicals that it is able to produce into the air which was a way of communicating with other plants. The communication was clear to the scientists who were able to see that the other plants responded quickly with there own chemical response. Plants are able to put of scents to attract bugs that will attack the aphids or repel the aphids from harming them altogether. People may not be able to hear or understand what the plants are saying but the fact is they are able to and do talk in there very own language. This also shows that plants can listen and intelligently respond to the communication that they are receiving from the other plants. Therefor it is highly possible that the earth has found its voice in another form as a way of communicating with the people that inhabit it. They know we do not understand there chemical response and perhaps through listening they have figured out we respond better to noises that they have learned to produce. I am sure that actually producing noises is something that is still hard to believe but the fact is it is known that plants and trees are capable of doing this as well. They may not currently be known to produce noises that people can hear however it is known that every plant is capable of producing vibrations and other noises that help them communicate. They are talking and they are listening! So it is not too far fetched to assume that they are not getting the response they were looking for and have learned to hone these vibrations in a way that will help them scream. Until we learn how to listen this phenomenon could be something that becomes even more apparent as there voices become stronger.
