My friend, you are stuck in a box. The box of tempus.
It is not always true that the larger the wavelength the lower the energy. That is only the case when you limit yourself to time. Time is just an
Of course, if your measurement is based on a fixed length of time, low frequencies will result in less energy than high frequencies over the same
amount of time. But ask yourself, is it really more energy, or is it just the same amount of energy in a smaller area?
With that said, you've missed the most important part of my post. Resonance.
I am sure you've heard of the kid on a swing analogy. If you push a kid on swing at a random rate you'd likely need to waste more energy trying to
keep the kid moving in a manner that would be enjoyable to the kid, and might even push at a point that slows the kid down. Destructive interference.
However, if you push the kid at just the right frequency, it would take less energy to keep the swing in motion with long strides. That would be the
So let me ask you... what is the most enjoyable part of riding on a swing? In my opinion, its getting the highest you can go at each point, and the
amount of acceleration and speed achieved when falling back to the zero position. That kind of enjoyment requires a much lower frequency to obtain,
especially if you are trying to push an adult...
The second most important part of my post was regarding octaves. In fact, its the key.
I didn't suggest building a super large antenna, I only said that to explain a concept. In the end its not about the size of the antenna, its about
the motions inside the antenna.
Do you see what I am alluding to?
