An additional consideration here, and one I suspect might be critical, is individual biology. It'll also gum up the works in trying to figure it out, without excluding a solid half of the equation.

I suspect that its the same physical response roughly across the board, but the stimuli that produces it differs according to everything from ear structure to neurology.

That said, there could certainly be some generalities that might be established. Though, they might be trickier to identify without access to the whole system in question. Good luck!

I´m amazed at all the replies and this is going to keep me busy for a while. The emails flodding in as well!

But I still trying to track down that problem. When I´ve solved that heisenbug like problem, I´ll setup a queue and process all at once.

I already had a very promising call with a local LAN-party (yes they still exist here) organizer. My plan is to have entry subsidized by a small payment and in exchange I get 1 hour computing time on each machine whose owner agrees. You guess it, a local botnet.

I can´t do it efficient over the internet (renting some servers), I need at least 200-300 Mbit/s throughput between the single nodes. My plan is to not only compute the values but also cross-reference them.

For that I already have some classes around that I just need to modify a bit.

I take this seriously because I genuinly think that I´m onto something really strange. I still can´t explain it or make sense of my experience.

The goals are
1) Compute the values for every snipped song (doing spektrograms and the underlying data)
1.2) Cross-reference the values and do different comparisions (heat maps, fourier analysis (going to be tough))

2) Let the neural network(s) chew on it until it spits out the most best scored solutions(algorithms) to arrive at the computed the patterns.
2.1) Generate sound from it and see if the effect is reproduceable

3) Compare that to the deep note and double mirror (both vertical and horizontal) all spectrograms.
3.1) Deliver those mirrored spectrograms and generated sounds to the participants (you).

4.) Trying to unlock the mystery connection between the deep note, it´s effect on me and the still mind blowing experience that somehow defies time-logic.

Why I do this:
It seems to me that there is a corelation between the deep note and the technique I used to arrived at the OOBE.
Time-reversed. Meaning:

The sound(waves) I saw, felt and heard during that OOBE I had recently...

For some reason, if you mirror them both vertical and horizontal, you get a graphic depiction of what I felt during the OOBE. And if that would not be enough, I only heard those soundwaves only mid-way into the journey. So how can that be?

Just songs? Or does classical count?

At about 1.47 in. When Mel Schacher, the bass player starts his "walking bass" riff. He was, by far and away, the greatest Bass guitarist of all time.

At about .38

I sing this while power walking before breakfast. I am not popular in the neighborhood.

At about 1.31

About 1.47
I could go on but for some reason the youtube thing quit working.
Hope this helps.

Sorry, had to add this one. If this one doesn't get you with goose bumps at 1:12, you're..........dead.

Likewise, this one. At 1:44

Kinda odd really, the contrast between these two songs. One quite dramatic and one quite subtle. For me at least, both are bumpers. Don't know what that says about the music, or worse, it may just be me.

Good luck.

So many different things I could put up here, classical, rock - god. It would eat up my whole day :-)

Music gets under my skin sometimes

This one - from start to finish gives me goosebumps. He knows what he's doing - so much of it not a surprise. For some reason this underwhelming moment at 51:33 gets me every time

But like I said - the whole thing makes me tingly. A little weepy too

Holst - The Planets...don't get me started

Interesting thread

How about those who pee and have the same sensations?

...I will publish any findings, exclusive here on ATS....

Good news:
I just finished a call with someone that I know built a PS3 cluster and it´s now twice as big (16x PS3). I was offered help with the software and I´m still negotiating if we run it here in my cellar or at her place.

I also ordered a Neutron NX500 so it can keep up.
Because I run out of SSD-space.

To those I´d say, see a doctor.

I ran it through while listening to it. Can you see 51:33? It´s about 1/4th into it.

@others, I did not forget you, I´m just testing currently and it came in handy.

Finished integrating that patter recognition I used on the mars gigapan to find a small rock for a member herehere.

It will now do the comparisions on the datasets.

Finally years of work join together!!

Yes - it looks like something, but I'm not sure I understand what I'm looking at

Does it tell you something?

Good to hear! keep up the good work and let us know what you discover.

the part where you see the stacked lines that look like they have stars in it, is the part that gives you the shiver.

Look above the word "forget", I zoomed in and out, it stays below that part.

Got the green light for the PS3 cluster, just want to give you an update that it will be december at least..

I ran into a math problem with a new function I wrote but can´t fix it. Currently I take a mental break from this because I´ve been far to busy with this lately, I don´t want drift into OCDing this.

Never happened to me but would be interested in what sounds cause it, good luck

Totally missed your post while I was up to my ears in converting spectrographs. Will look into it!

Not everyone is prone to that feeling, I thought I posted it in this thread somewhere but I can´t find it. I think it was like 50/50 percentage.

I´m still waiting for the PS3 cluster so nothing new on this project. :-/
