About 25 years ago I met an extraordinary individual â late Leo Theremin. Hi was the father of all the electronic musical instruments. http://mindlounge.mayancaper.net/intersections/theremin.html. His invention (ThereminVox) was such a revolution in electronics! It inspired thousands of young inventors to jump into experimenting with sounds and many of the incredible devices including âEcholotâ that is used in submarines were created at that time. Professor Theremin has shared with me one of his thoughts that has started 20 years long R&D program that I called âMicroscope of Timeâ. The premise is very simple: Our brain can decipher or process information within certain dynamic ranges, whether those ranges would be of time or of distance. Letâs use an analogy to demonstrate this concept. If you were watching the cars at a busy intersection from a high rise apartment building, you could see the chain of events clearlyâturn signals, brake lights, movements of the cars. If we filmed this intersection and then increased the speed of the film a thousand times, we would see chaos rather than the logical chain of events. Conversely, if we decreased the speed of the film a thousand times, we could barely see movement at all. In other words, in either case, we could not be able to decipher the logical chain. The more successful we are at comprehending information in this âmicroscope of timeâ, the more successful we are at making logical decisions. For example, Wayne Gretsky is an amazing hockey player. It is not his athletic ability per se but his ability to comprehend or process information at an incredible speed and then react from a position of knowledge. You have heard the expression, canât see the forest for the trees. Well, if you are looking at one tree closely it is impossible to see the âbig pictureâ. We could say a macro and a micro view. We can do the same thing with time. If you are watching a video whether you fast-forward or put it in slow motion our comprehension of the events are distorted. However, there are events, like a score in a hockey game that can be better appreciated with a slow playback. By comparing what occurred in the regular time frame to the slow playback we have a very clear picture of the event. Humans have a very narrow dynamic comprehension range which allows us to process information accurately only at a very specific speed. Attached to this post are sound files of the KLAC activity at a very specific frequency range. Can you hear the heart beat of the market?
