I received an email recently reminding me that there is an important and simple experiment waiting to be replicated and confirmed. If the experiment is a success, then in my view this will be a major step forward.
There are sketchy anecdotal reports of people who have descended deep into limestone caves and successfully escaped the Hum. I may have the chance to test this more conclusively, with a group of regional volunteers. There is a famous old mine just north of Vancouver, now used for educational purposes. A few years ago, I entered into initial conversations about the mine being used as a crucial setting for an important scientific experiment. I drifted back toward finishing the Deming Box instead, but now I think it’s time to start getting ready to look in other directions. I’ll be reaching out to them again soon, and I hope the added weight of many serious and mainstream news articles will encourage their participation.
Later one night, a group of volunteers who hear the Hum would gather near the mine and, indoors with the mains electricity turned off, listen if they hear the Hum. Then we would descend to the deepest parts of the mine and again have the mains power shut down. (This is the part that I am going to have to work very hard to convince them of). Then we would listen again.
If the Hum were blocked, this would be a major discovery, and would at once point the research in specific directions.
