I am in Covid-19 self-isolation now, having just returned to Canada from work-related travel through St Petersburgh, Helsinki, Kyiv, and Toronto. I feel very grateful to be back on Canadian soil. I am currently asymptomatic, and I wish good health to all those who may have been exposed or are working to limit exposure to themselves and others.
I received an email from a sharp-eyed reader who noted that over the next while, Hum hearers will be able to tell us if the dramatic reduction in world air travel is connected in any way to the perception of low-frequency noise and infrasound.
No doubt there are countless people out there who are overwhelmed with uncertainty and anxiety over much more important matters – issues such as the safety of elderly loved ones, putting food on the table, and whether they will have a job, for example. My empathy goes out to them during these extraordinary times.
For Hum hearers who are safe, properly isolated, and have the mental space and need to keep their minds active, perhaps take some time at night to listen for the Hum. What you hear, or don’t hear, could add to what we know.
I urge everyone to help stop this pandemic and to attend to their physical and emotional health. For those of you who recognize a personal need to keep your mind engaged and focused, feel free to listen for the Hum, and tell us what you hear.
