I am back, and I can see I have a lot of reading to do.
Before I talk about anything else I want to make a suggestion: Zanzibar you really need to learn to meditate or some other skill that will help you to
relax and calm yourself. Right now you are having what are small problems, but as you get older, and shoulder more important responsibilities, things
could get messy, or deadly.
Not trying to be dramatic here, just honest.
Ok, let's start with a lightbulb. I hope everyone knows how they basically work, a little strand heats up and glows when power passes through it.
They are not made to handle excess power and I would bet that almost everyone has bumped a light and had it pop.
So in many cases it is not too hard to see that a loud sound could easily have the same effect, not often, perhaps when the light is nearing the end
anyway, but not that uncommon.
Now up to here even the toughest realist should be in basic agreement, so lets take the next step.
Energy, the basis for everything, sound is energy, heat is energy, and when you look at it, even solid matter is a form of energy. Humans radiate a
number of different types of energy, a few we officially acknowledge and can measure (EKG) and a whole lot that we cannot. Science is in the
never-ending process of learning about energy and new types, and forms, will forever be discovered. But they exist, now, they have effects, now, and
so you must turn to the mystics to even begin to learn about those not yet totally understood.
Different types of energy share some traits, heat is a common side-effect of some types for example. Run enough current through a wire and it
generates heat. Some forms of energy can be transmitted through various mediums, and frankly a number of other similarities that are not all that
important right now.
I think that as humans have a lot more power running through us than anyone currently wishes to really understand. So when someone tells me 'I break
things a lot' or 'I am really unlucky', and most especially 'electronic things do not work well, or at all, for me', what I see is someone who by
some combination of genes and experience who can project a little more power than is good for them.
No easy solution, although what I suggested at the start of this message is a good place to start. But it should not simply be accepted, that is a
waste, a potential loss to yourself and maybe the rest of us as well.
What I do know, from direct personal experience, is that you can strongly affect what happens around you if you make the effort to do so. It can get
better, perfection is a goal that I make no claim to have achieved, but I know it can get better.
