Has anyone else noticed that whenever the word "frequency" occurs within a conspiracy theory, the next thing you know a whole raft of posters will
jump in with the wildest supplementary ideas conflating anything that can be described by its frequency with the phenomenon under discussion? Its
really starting to piss me off!
To be clear then: whilst "a frequency" can be used as a noun, it does not refer to anything that actually exists in the real world, but rather to a
measurement of a real phenomenon. Anything which happens repetitively can be described as having a frequency; that is all it means: how frequently it
You cannot hear frequencies coming from your [insert object]: you hear sound, most likely composed of harmonics at various frequencies.
You do not have frequencies emitted by your phone, you have EM radiation (oh noes! PLEASE just look it up), otherwise known as EHF radio waves.
Sound is the transmission of kinetic energy through a physical medium. You hit something: its molecules are compressed; they spring back & the force
is applied to those molecules closest, which also spring back, passing the energy along. Its the same principal with vibrating objects in air, the
energy is passed along from the object's molecules to those of the air. This is why things get quieter the further from them you get.
Electro-magnetic energy (or radiation, oh noes!) is a totally different thing. It comprises: radio, microwaves, infrared heat, light, ultraviolet,
x-rays & gamma radiation (these last 3 are dodgy). They are are a fundamental force of the universe, can travel through a vacuum & are
completely different from sound. COMPLETLY DIFFERENT, OK?
The earth has a frequency: approx. 0.000011574 Hz. ie it revolves once/day. My car has many frequencies, but 1 I can easily measure is the revolution
of the crankshaft: 0.01 Hz = 6000 RPM. My arse has a frequency: approx. 0.000185 Hz. or 16 farts/day.
What is the conspiracy then? This dumbed down info is widely available, so why is it ignored?
