I'm gonna be busy ;)
That's a lot of rocks.
Incidentally following up on your physical effects, in my very first post on the subject, I became interested because as a collector of mineral specimens, I had a medium sized quartz cluster centered between my speakers. My system, had a perpetual upper frequency edge to the music, which could not be eliminated no matter what I tried.
Finally as the cluster was getting very dusty I took it out and hosed it down, leaving it out to dry in the sun. To my surprise the upper "edginess" disappeared. Replacing the cluster back in the old position brought it back. I suspect that the cluster was receiving RFI and simply reradiating back into the room.
Geez, Louise, it couldn't possibly have been the sound pressure peak centered between the speakers that was to blame. It always has to be RFI with you. LOL
If the quartz cluster was re-radiating RFI back into the room, as you "theorize", the RFI was already there in the room to begin with! LOL I foresee a new theory from you - quartz crystals as magnets and radiators for RFI. They attract and repel at the same time! Using the principles of quantum mechanics. LOL
You just don't know how those quartz oscillators work, do you, Mr. "rocket scientist" and "theoretical physicist"?
Your cup of ignorance simply overflows.
PS Ran out of your prescription for Ritalin, did ya?
Didnt get back on this yet but the effect this large amount of crystals has on my phsysical being is repeatable. I had to store thw whole lot of them away in a box because being close to them makes me nautious/dizzy, whenever I enter the room where they are and get close to the box I get dizzy/nautious. It feels colder in the room aswell, funny enough I have one of those air purifiers with negative ion generation and it struck me that sortoff gives the same "cold/fresh" feel in a room. So maybe I've got some mayor negative ion production going on. Anyway I'm a bit baffled by this, bought them for better sound but there's obviously something going on with these "rocks".. Next time somebody dares to enter my home I will direct him to the room and see what happens to him ;)
And if you were listening to music with all of the crystals in the room, you would experience the music to be sounding worse – along the lines of it being much more “harsh, aggressive and shouty sound”
I don’t think you could guarantee that another person would react with the same PHYSICAL reactions to the presence of all those crystals in the room but I would feel quite confident that they would be able to HEAR the same deterioration in the sound as you would.
I am afraid it will have to be the laborious technique of introducing the different crystals – one by one – into the room and seeing how you both react physically and also what the music sounds like.
I would like to make it quite clear. I do not challenge people’s observations and the descriptions of improvements in the sound of their audio. I recognise what they are hearing.
Nor can your physical symptoms be because of auto-suggestion, bias, imagination etc because no one had suggested to you that you would feel physically worse with the crystals in the room.
Stay on the path of observing your physical reactions Those observations will get you further along the path of understanding than thinking how the audio signal or the room acoustics might be being affected by the crystals.
Some folks report negative physical and/or mental "side effects" from the Schumann Frequency generators similar to the effects you descibe for the crystals. Difficult to say if there's any connection, or to why everyone doesn't experience these side effects with crystals and the Schumann Frequency generator. Or with batteries or magnets, for that matter.
I'd be curious if you notice any physical or "psychological" effects, good bad or indifferent, from being in proximity to all those crystals. Yes, I'm being serious.
funny you mention that since I was indeed getting a little lightheaded, dizzy, was a bit uncomfortable so I packed em all away for later evaluation. Still a bit nauseous.
Interesting, isn't it? After all, they're just rocks.
Could be a coincidence ;) I guess I should take em all out again tomorrow and see if the same thing happens ;) Btw with all the rocks on the table I had a bigass midrange suckout for the few minutes I listened.
I have noticed similar things. One needs to be careful when arbitrarily putting the crystals on a table or on the floor. Maybe best to take them out of the house entirely.
