I love HPL, but I sure as hell don't want the Bloop to be C'thulu. If you recall, really about the only thing you get is a swift death. As far as the other saying it is a nuke sub, nah... even a nuke sub would not create such a sound in such a wide area. Those who are unsure of the biological apects, do some research on sonar and biological underwater sonar signatures. It will give you some insight as to why this is more than likely a living creature.

Why dont they stick a big sphere down there made up of 1 foot thick glass or more with a series of deep sea cameras and lights down there to see what they could find . I personally don't see why they say they cant send something down there , they say oh extreme pressures but a circle/sphere is the stronger pressure risistant shape and if one thickness isn't enough then make it thicker .

There is a high possibility that the bloop is a biological sound. Seeing as noone has explored that part of the ocean. Scientists believe we could have animals of monstrous size down in the abyss. But i do have to say the bloop has been silent for the past 11 years. That would be an indicator of death. Mabye the bloop was this creature's dying noise. Noone knows. I do hope that one day we find out what the bloop is (Although i seriously doubt it is an alien with an octopus face). Although i wouldn't want to be the person who finds its origin if it's the size it's rumoured to be.

Or, maybe it has been heard again since then, but it has been kept from people.
The oceans have been virtually transparent to the military for years now. Yet, they are not passing any information to the public.

If there is some giant monster down there, i'm pretty sure they wouldn't tell us.

Yeah I imagine they wouldn't. It's hard to have to break that to the public.

Some military Colonel at a breaking news announcement at the pentagon with a bunch of cameras around.

-"So uhhh...you know how like every year there are all these planes and ships that disappear around the bermuda triangle?... ... yeah well,uhhhh we sorta found out what that is... look people were not saying all boats and air traffic in that area should stop, you know like it's still 'safe', you know... ... But we found a 5000 foot long giant octopus sea monster that routinely uses it's giant tentacles to snatch low flying aircraft, and just about any passing ship... now don't everybody panic we don't want international trade to stop because of this, you should still continue sailing your ships through there, it only feeds when it's hungry. we think we have it figured out that the creature eats only once every 12 hours. so...you know, it should be safe to sail for 12 hours or so a day. nobody panic."

I do believe something big is living in the deep ocean depths. Recently, a pod of 50 sperm whales beached themselves on a beach in Australia. Could the Bloop be responsible for their beaching? They say it is man made sonar that is causing the beachings, but this has not been proved. Other whales, minke, pilot, etc..., frequently beach themselves, which is a modern phenomenon. There had been a lot of nuclear testing in the artic waters by South Africa/Israel, back in 1979 (satellite Vela 6911 recorded nuclear testing there). Could the radioactivity be producing huge mutant creatures that are trying to dine on whales, causing them to beach themselves rather then get eaten? There have been incidents where boats have been found in the middle of the ocean, with no trace of the human boater anywhere. Could the Bloop be into human meat cuisine? Something to think about...

Grr i wish we would hear some more about this, its like they heard the noise and then NOTHING has been heard since. Surely if it was some natural sound we would of heard something about it since. Theres got to be something big down there for them not to tell us anymore bout it!

Heres a decent question.

Was the sound only picked up by one sosus device or by a network of them. the reason I ask is because if they only picked up the sound on one sosus device than the sound was most likely not very loud and was relatively close to the sosus device when made. which would lead us to speculate that the source of the sound was not some gigantic creature. must be smaller than a whale. I am sure sosus can hear whales on multiple arrays. even the same whale call from hundreds of miles away.

For all we know it could have been a whale crapping on the device or giant squid farting next to it.

I think i remember reading it was detected on multiple devices.

Still doesn't mean it's some huge animal. Hell I'm confident that a sosus array could pick up a whale call from several hundred miles away. So the Bloop is up for grabs, it could literally be anything from something so mundane we would laugh if we found out what it was. to some mysterious sea creature. to most likely some underground landslide or a nuclear submarine broadcasting weird sounds (well whatever sound it pleases) in it's active sonar. you know use sonar to see the underwater world perfectly clear yet sound like nothing at all. very cleaver these subs are.

well, most experts say its more then likely biological

From CNN.com

"LONDON, England -- Scientists have revealed a mysterious recording that they say could be the sound of a giant beast lurking in the depths of the ocean.

Researchers have nicknamed the strange unidentified sound picked up by undersea microphones "Bloop."

While it bears the varying frequency hallmark of marine animals, it is far more powerful than the calls made by any creature known on Earth, Britain's New Scientist reported on Thursday.

It is too big for a whale and one theory is that it is a deep sea monster, possibly a many-tentacled giant squid.

In 1997, Bloop was detected by U.S. Navy "spy" sensors 3,000 miles apart that had been put there to detect the movement of Soviet submarines, the magazine reports. The frequency of the sound meant it had to be much louder than any recognised animal noise, including that produced by the largest whales.

So is it a huge octopus? Although dead giant squid have been washed up on beaches, and tell-tale sucker marks have been seen on whales, there has never been a confirmed sighting of one of the elusive cephalopods in the wild.

The largest dead squid on record measured about 60ft including the length of its tentacles, but no one knows how big the creatures might grow.

For years sailors have told tales of monsters of the deep including the huge, many-tentacled kraken that could reach as high as a ship's mainmast and sink the biggest ships.

However Phil Lobel, a marine biologist at Boston University, Massachusetts, doubts that giant squid are the source of Bloop.

"Cephalopods have no gas-filled sac, so they have no way to make that type of noise," he said. "Though you can never rule anything out completely, I doubt it." Nevertheless he agrees that the sound is most likely to be biological in origin.

The system picking up Bloop and other strange noises from the deep is a military relic of the Cold War.

In the 1960s the U.S. Navy set up an array of underwater microphones, or hydrophones, around the globe to track Soviet submarines. The network was known as SOSUS, short for Sound Surveillance System.

The listening stations lie hundreds of yards below the ocean surface, at a depth where sound waves become trapped in a layer of water known as the "deep sound channel".

Here temperature and pressure cause sound waves to keep travelling without being scattered by the ocean surface or bottom.

Most of the sounds detected obviously emanate from whales, ships or earthquakes, but some very low frequency noises have proved baffling.

Scientist Christopher Fox of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Acoustic Monitoring Project at Portland, Oregon, has given the signals names such as Train, Whistle, Slowdown, Upsweep and even Gregorian Chant.

He told New Scientist that most can be explained by ocean currents, volcanic activity -- Upsweep was tracked to an undersea South Pacific mountain that had not been identified as "live."

"The sound waves are almost like voice prints. You're able to look at the characteristics of the sound and say: 'There's a blue whale, there's a fin whale, there's a boat, there's a humpback whale and here comes and earchquake," he says.

But some sounds remain a mystery he says. Like Bloop -- monster of the deep?"


thats the whole report that CNN did
plus there has been an entire movie dedicated to the possibility of the bloop being biological "Cloverfield"


this has intrigued me since the day i heard about it, the possibility of a gigantic sea beast roaming the ocean floor near point nemo or "the point of inaccesability" just sounds too good to be true, yet the audio proof is astounding.

Wow, completely forgot about this thread... I'd be very, very interested to know more on it... I stilll think it's Great Cthulhu!

Check this link:

www.bloopwatch.org...

There was some great audio of the "bloop" on there.

IA!

Probably a submarine. They basically said in the article that the "bloop" sounded basically biological-a sorta generic biological sound, but unidentifiable. The main problem with it was that it was louder than any biological sound they have heard.

Military submarines have very sophisticated sound synthesizers to emulate just about any sound on earth. They can broadcast the sound outside using active sonar. The sound will make the sub sound like anything other than a submarine. Most all first rate Military SSN/BN/GN can and do do this. Not only to disguise their sound, but also for vessels it may be escorting. I'm pretty sure that these active sonars can be incredibly loud if they want them to be. Maybe somebody screwed up on board one of the boats and broadcasted a sound actively for a brief moment when maybe it wasn't supposed to.

It's more likely than a super sized animal living down there. Although it would be real cool if there indeed was one. I think there are other types of animals living down in the deep than we are aware of, things living like those thermal vent tube worms, maybe some sort of predator that lives off of the ecosystem those worms facilitate.

Could it be the living organism...Earth? Maybe it is a sound from a creature that resides in the possible hollow earth? Or could it possibly be a creature bleeding through from another dimension?

I'd love to think of a Gaia model - I think if we treated the earth itself as a gestalt organism it would work wonders. Most people see Earth as a rock with life on it, not a humming, breathing creature itself.

I don't know that I believe in a hollow earth so much as I believe in tunnels and other voids a laThe Core because there's so much science dealing with how the earth's magnetic field is generated, movements of magma and core fluids, etc. But, a hidden cave environment with relict populations of something old would be great, and possible in the right circumstances.

As for alternate dimensions, I think everything past time is supposed to be enfolded in the core of an atom, right? Alternate universes would be something interesting, but can an extradimensional being survive the conditions here?

CTHULHU FHTAGN!!!!
The interesting thing is that the Bloop occured close to where Lovecraft described the sunken city of R'lyeh, Cthulhu's home, to be located. Lovecraft was often spoken to by mediums, as his fiction was believed by some to be visions of alternate realities or possible futures. Although he denied this, and expressed often that his stories were purely fictional, the Cthulhu mythos remains so popular even now due to the elements of mysticism that surrounds his work

EDIT : Just read other with same view, sorry.

Maybe he is Cthulhu


I think this is what fascinated me most about the bloop the fact it was so close to where Lovecraft said R'lyeh was.

Is it possible that if this noise was made by some huge creature, that this was perhaps it was the final moments of the creatures life and that's why nothing has been heard since?

The ocean is a huge place, i suppose it could be possible of such a creature to remain hidden.

I went to Bloopwatch and listened to the Audio. My yellow lab is sitting next to me now even as I type this. When I played it.. he started barking and the hair on his body stood up and he took off and hid under the bed. It was the strangest reaction.


I was a huge (still am) HP Lovecraft fan. There is just something so authentic about his writings. Read some of them if you can.. they blow away pretty much any horror book nowadays. Someone should make a movie of Call of.
