Paul Devereux will share his investigation of ancient sites and acoustic archaeology. From caves to constructed stone chambers to standing stones, from temples to rock walls,, the natural acoustics were celebrated and often enhanced to optimize the ritual sounds produced within them. A prolific author, Devereaux was among the first, in his 2002 book Stone Age Sound Tracks to notice how natural acoustic properties of many ancient sites were celebrated very early on, as places where Earth herself added voice to ritual.
Also, our planet’s remarkable energy arising from processes within the Earth may the source for some unexplained phenomenon, suggests Paul Devereux, such as mysterious “earth lights” forms around the world, some UFO sightings, ley lines, and more. He concludes the mystery also lies within us, that we haven’t really fully understood our place in the world, and thus see the mystery as outside us.
