A prehistoric necropolis yields clues to the ancient use of sound and its effect on human brain activity.
Researchers detected the presence of a strong double resonance frequency at 70Hz and 114Hz inside a 5,000-years-old mortuary temple on the Mediterranean island of Malta. The Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum is an underground complex created in the Neolithic (New Stone Age) period as a depository for bones and a shrine for ritual use. A chamber known as “The Oracle Room” has a fabled reputation for exceptional sound behavior.

In a phase space, every degree of freedom or parameter of the system is represented as an axis of a multidimensional space; ….For every possible state of the system, or allowed combination of values of the system’s parameters, a point is included in the multidimensional space…The system’s evolving state over time traces a path (a phase space trajectory for the system) through the high-dimensional space…As a whole, the phase diagram represents all that the system can be…A phase space may contain a great many dimensions.

We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.
— opening stanza of Ode by Arthur O’Shaughnessy

Legend has it that the Great Chicago Fire started at 137 DeKoven Street in Mrs. O’Leary’s barn.
All will be revealed at http://primes.utm.edu/curios/page.php?short=137Above all, what is missing from the world is a sense of what is in operation as the world. Even so, it can be stated without hesitation that each of us is involved (or ought to be involved) in an ongoing process of self-invention. If each person must invent herself further out of what she has at her disposal, we should at least have readily available a reference guide to all that a person can possibly rally to the cause of being a person. When I assign a meaning to something, I do it on the basis of what? In this, as in all instances, the questioner herself is the big question, the greater context. Being a person is an astounding event or series of events. Astounding in its variegated ordinariness. Does variegated ordinariness exist only always to dwindle away toward a dreary end? Why should the astounding series of events that is a person have to come to an end? But in regard to a whole person, what constitutes the whole of it? The body-person cannot be studied apart from her surroundings. What wields itself as the architectural body? To what extent do architectural surrounds guide behavior? Can architectural inflection of thought and feeling be calibrated precisely?
