Recent Updates, part 1

It’s been a month since I posted here, so I thought I’d give you some updates as to what’s been going on. I have done some research pertaining to psychosis, psychopathy, sociopathy, neurosis and neuroticism using my schemas to infer some scenarios to figure out if any of these traits can be genetically-predisposed. I will be making a few changes to my novel before I do anything else with it. I attended my first laser hair removal appointment and I will be talking about that shortly in comparison to my experiences with electrology.
First, however, I’ll start by saying that last week my Mac with Windows underwent a major crash, so I may have to post from my iOS device until I figure out how to restore my computer to the state it was before it crashed. Please expect long delays and slow responses as I am doing my best to stay atop my notifications.
Let’s start out with some interesting findings in the world of psychopathy and psychosis. One of the things I was looking into was how language as opposed to science could have an effect on rewiring the brain’s ability to rebuild hallways on the map, and how each bridge that intersect these highways can carry bits of information at a time. With the psychopaths, people are believed to have complete left-brained activity and almost no right-brained activity. This is why psychopaths are mainly objective and use a lot of language and have a lot of fight-and-flight responses in their systems, such as serial killers and those who are great at brainwashing you so you would be more loyal to them. The opposite of psychopathy is neuroticism. Psychosis and neurosis are different terms, as well. People who suffer from delusional thoughts or have a break in reality take antipsychotic drugs, though the mechanism of action is still not yet known. In theory, and possibly in practice, psychopathic people can be very good, but most people associate them as being bad. Imagine an emergency situation where a person got injured. A neurotic would go into a nervous and or emotional breakdown while a psychopath would remain calm and be able to help the person.
How people become psychopathic or neurotic is very questionable, since it can be caused by environmental factors as well as genetic predisposition, such as dealing with family situations, being exposed to certain crowds for a long period of time, among many others. I believe in the balance of both nature and nurture, because everything comes from everything else. That’s why there is the rope theory. Kids can grow up modelling what their abusive parents did to them, or they can veer away from that and really learn not to follow in their parent’s stead.
I have come up with a balance between honesty and the power to make a person feel good or bad using the words that you use, because it’s not a matter of what you say, but it is how you say it that counts. Back in December I have talked about ways to deal with situations in which you may be in a disagreement. I have gotten a new perspective wich I just said above. In today’s culture we have neurotics who have nothing in their minds except to bring attention to themselves about the people they talk to behind their backs, and with most blind people, it is easy for them to spy on other blind people. Most, if not all neurotics use emotions to empathise with their most fundamental character of that person. If the person happens to be rude, their emotions would amplify that a great deal. That’s why people who like to gossip about drama are mostly neurotic. I have spied on a lot of my former friends, and I heard many things they were talking about without their knowing that I was listening, since I was careful to squelch my identifiers, such as gait recognition, smell, breathing and sighing patterns, etc so as to hide from the radar. Besides, some people might think that because I had a severe hearing impairment, I would not be able to listen to what they were talking about, especially if it were something I was not supposed to know about. I could either let things go by or bring it to their attention, depending on the circumstances. Sometimes I may even have a voice recorder to show proof that I was there when it happened. However, I have seen people where they would claim that they knew I was there all along, they just chose not to acknowledge my presence.
I was thinking, instead of doing the obvious with these psychopaths or neurotics, what if we could induce a form of alternative therapy to stimulate their right brains, and using something to exercise their left brains, such as using aroma therapy or have them listen to something other than popular music in order for their thought patterns to changed. Maybe using simple cognitive exercises to bring out the logical and rational side of that person would suffice. Being too left-brained or too right-brained can be bad for you. I believe in middle-brained activity. I believe that there is a big difference between tricking and forcing. We all know that forcing is wrong, but tricking is more questionable. Surely you cannot force children to eat their vegetables, but you can trick them by hiding them in parts of their food that they would not bother to look. It is thought that vegetables might taste the way they do because it is meant to wart off predators using chemical defence. I believe the same concept could apply here. Brainwashing is when you control the way someone thinks against their own will, but many people think that torture is brainwashing, which I am against. I believe you can brainwash someone without forcing them to do what you want them to do. Hypnosis is something that requires a reasonable understanding of moral and ethical values if it is to be practised. I always thought we would be wasting tons of tax money on prisoners who hardly reform, and there is the possibility that no matter how many times you brain wash them, their old habits could surface. In that case, what should we do? Permanently alter their hormone productions, change their genes, give them shock therapy, or something else that we have thought of? About five or six years ago, I heard about a five-year-old boy on the news whose mother said that he was extremely dangerous to the point he could stab and kill people if he wanted to. What happened since then I know not, but I suspect that he had a major hormone or neurotransmitter imbalance that could have been altered if people stopped seeing the obvious. It’s also possible that he had a psychotic brain.
Something that just came to my mind was transgender hypnosis. I have heard cases where a person could try to evoke feelings and sensations relating to a different sex from within their mind while in a hypnotic state, and I was looking to see if this could be of further use in those wishing to be transgender to enhance their creativity. I have also done some research in the BDSM culture, or S&M lifestyle, to learn what kind of practices were involved.
Yesterday was Easter, as we all know, but in case many don’t, yesterday was also 4-20 day, a day celebrated in drug culture, and it could have been Hitler’s birthday. I thought it to be ironic that such a tradition would fall on a religious holiday. I wonder if there are any other holidays that coincided with other events such as this? Update: On 1 April 2018, Easter happened to pay us a visit on April Fool’s Day.

Getting Back to Blogging

Today, I decided I’d cover a few things since the last time I blogged. I should mention that today is my twentieth birthday, and if I ever wanted to be a teenager once again, I would have to be cloned into the body that is that many years old. This would mean that I would have to celebrate two birthdays. One that would symbolise how old I have been living and acquiring knowledge and wisdom into my inner-being while the other birthday would signify how old my physical being was. For example, I could live up to be eighty-five and reside in the body of a ten-year-old. Of course, this gets a little far-fetched, since scientists are trying to prolong life using stem cells. I also thought of this interesting ageing manipulation after having watched Demolition Man. If you are friends with someone who is fifty-eight, and you wanted to be the same age as they are, you would have to suspend their body in cryogenesis, while you worked your way up to be fifty-eight. Then you would unfreeze that person and you would both be the same age. The only setback is that time would have moved on.
Yesterday was Pi Day, and the getting ready for Saint Patrick’s Day on Monday. Update: It’s probably no coincidence that Stephen Hawking chose to die on 14 March 2018 at the age of seventy-six, which is a long time considering what he had. It was definitely the best time for him to die because he left on a mathematical note.
The first thing I wanted to go over are different kinds of human enhancements that are natural and safe to use. For instance, I would like to be able to smell as good as any dog, and to be able to detect changes in human pheromones to know when someone is happy, sad, frightened, angry, etc. I think it would be pretty interesting to use such fine signatures, as most blind people rely on auditory senses to know when someone they know is present. Deaf-blind people wouldn’t have much benefit from their hearing, so we’d have to depend on these other senses. It’d be more funny if you could be in a room, and all of the sudden you recognise someone’s scent and you said, ‘hello’ and the person’s name. They would ask how you knew they were there without having to talk to you first. You would just smile shily and say that you always know when they are there. I heard some people use gait recognition as another way to tell when someone was there. This could be useful if you were next to someone and they were suddenly having an epileptic seizure, you would be able to smell the changes in their chemistry, or maybe sense their brain waves. Speaking of seizures, I learnt that there was a way you could chemically or electrically induce one using electroshock therapy. For people who wanted to experience night vision, why not give them reflecting cells called tapetum lucidom? Although people say the human eye cannot detect infrared or ultraviolet, the truth of the matter is that some people can, and it’s due to flawed structures in the cells. https://www.itworld.com/article/2732596/real-world-superpowers–eye-surgery-lets-some-see-well-into-the-ultraviolet.html I’m sure there are other real-world superpowers, too, like hibernating, camouflaging, parthenogenecis, bioluminescence, and many, many more. We are so underdeveloped compared to other species, and we have terribly slow reflexes. We rely on our technology so much, and I’m not just talking about our electronics. I’m talking about the technology our ancestors have used. Tarzan was an example of a natural transhuman who developed really great agility due to being raised in the jungle like a feral child.
The next thing I wanted to discuss was ways on how people dealt with stress, and what might happen to the mind at that time. Last Monday, after having talked to my new soul mate from Europe, I started getting overwhelmed with the class I was taking, the things I wanted to do, and still keep everyone happy all at once. I did so much multi-tasking that my brain virtually went into overload and would not process anything else until I had a good sleep and did something to exercise my mind. A good spring-cleaning on my computer and in the house seemed like a good idea, but then I got to thinking about using mind sports and building a reading list so I would have something to read that I have never read yet when I finished with the stuff I was currently doing. I decided that going back in time with my diary would help me as well, since nostalgic moments often make a person feel euphoric. Update: I have always lacked a ‘moviecation’ (Pitch Perfect 2012) because it is hard to hear not only the descriptive element, but the dialogue, and there’s not much in terms of better serving people who are dD/deaf-blind or blind and hard-of-hearing individuals. You are either seen as deaf, or you are blind, but almost never together. So, in 2019, my New Year’s resolution was to watch at least one movie every weekend, and three at the most, one on Friday, another on Saturday, and a third one on Sunday. Maybe I might raise it to seven movies a week, one movie a day. All I need to do is find the SRT file, make sure the times are synchronised, and then run the movie through a programme called the Wade Machine.
Should people care too much about what other say? In today’s high standards, thanks to those unscrupulous Europeans who came and messed things up, we now have to lie to protect ourselves and each other, that our feelings become locked up inside us. With writing being the best way for communicating with a false facade, lack of emotion is present, and therefore, misinterpretations lead to fights on the internet. Sometimes, even though you know you should not care too much if someone makes assumptions about you, you still care, because it gives you a feeling of being uncomfortable, and more so when those people start spreading rumours about you that could ruin your career and or your reputation. This might have been mentioned in an earlier post, but some time has passed, and of course, more experience. For now, that’s all that I have to say, but hopefully when my mind is out of this fog I can add to this post.

Why Celebrities Often get corrupted

Most of us know that in today’s popular culture and trends, we have celebrities who are expected to fulfil certain things to satisfy audience at large without actually showing true talent behind them. The question is, why? People have wired this new trait into the human race. They want to be the number one at everything, no matter what it is. It’s just a trait that has been around for as long as human evolution has existed, but with the emergence of language and technology, not to mention the need for experimentation, we can rebuild new traits.
Male-identified celebrities try to compete and outdo one another while female-identified celebrities are constantly at the vanity spotlight. So what happens when we have some kind of overlap–the question I asked before, why is it okay for girls to be tomboys, but not okay for boys to be sissies? Let’s take Justin Biever, for instance. He may act all tough and manipulative, and people have disputed his gender and sexual identity because of the way he sang when he was little, and sometimes because of the way he sings now. So, what happened to the real Justin? His masculinity is slowly being taken away, but by whom? As a result of that, he is using his tough-guy act to cover it up. Take a look at this scenario a friend provided me with.
One day he went to the United Kingdom and while he was there, he fainted on-stage, so he went to a hospital. Well, when he got out of the hospital, he went back to his hotel to play with his Xbox or whatever, causing him to be not one, not two, but three hours late to a concert! For it must be understood that someone of his celebrity status is often paid to do a job, and with his fans being little kids or young teens, they have curfews and have school the next day. And also parents have to work hard, sometimes doing so many jobs just to afford those ridiculously overpriced tickets. Meanwhile, he gets paid millions upon millions of dollars while the hard working man barely makes enough for himself let alone for his overly-obsessed daughter with even more overly-obsessed teen heartthrob fantacies. Anyway, most people instead of waiting around for him to show up just get up and leave. Without so much as even giving an apology to those who were practically waiting around all hours of the night for him to show up to sing a few songs, he just comes in, kind of performs one or two songs and just goes home. He tries to tweet about how sorry he is on twitter so as to make people believe it’s all water under the bridge, when in all reality it most certainly isn’t. That’s one reason why I think he’s a sissy boy. He’s getting all the opportunities that people with true talent should be getting! He’s making it hard for real singers to become discovered! https://www.al.com/entertainment/2015/06/this_is_why_concerts_always_st.html and https://www.quora.com/Why-do-popular-music-performers-so-often-start-their-concerts-late are some good sites to visit. I’ve performed at a few social justice concerts, but because we were not getting any fame for it, we were always very punctual.
Now let us get onto the most obvious reason why Justin Bieber is an example of a sissy boy. Okay, so after that disastrous concert where he was booed for showing up late and rightfully so, he went back to his hotel to crash for the night, or did he? The answer to that question, the world may never know. However, what the world certainly does know is that the next day, as he was exiting the hotel, lo and behold. There were papparazzi! So they said a few words to him, he’s got his big fat body guards that are probably in all reality just as much, if not more of sissies than he is. So he told the guys to move out of the way, and as a result a fight began, all because some guy said a few words that the body guard didn’t like. The photographer wasn’t even directing his words at Bieber, and it was only after Bieber jumped out of the car did the his words become directed at Bieber. So, Justin decided to play tough by saying he’d beat the crap out of the guy who said whatever to set Justin and his crew off, and lo and behold, those body guards were basically carrying him back into the car! So basically instead of the body guards letting Justin put his money where his mouth is to prove how much of a man he really was, or rather, the lack of a man he really is, these body guards of his were yet again not only babying and spoiling him but were perpetuating his downward spiral. And that is why Justin is now in the lion’s den, and why Justin Bieber is a sissy.
I don’t know much about this interpretation. To be honest, this is beyond my scope of comprehension, so I cannot make any comments of my own. What I can say is based on what I have conducted when I researched Justin. Perhaps there are some missing points that, when added would give a person more of a mental picture as to why Justin is more of a sissy than we realise.
People who are cowards try to use fear as their biggest weapon, and that’s what most bullies do. Of course the best thing you can do is laugh it off or use verbal judo to intimidate the bully. They say if you fight back you are only giving the bully more power because they are wanting to feed on the feedback. If the bully gets no feedback they will get tired. Lois Lowry wrote in ‘Son’ where the trade master has to watch the outcome of his evil powers. If he makes a person incapable of walking, he’ll watch that person struggle to walk and it’ll be like some kind of food to this creature. If he is unable to see this, he’ll get hungrier and hungrier because he needs to feed on this power. The same goes for bullies. They want results to give them more energy.
Update: I once met someone who had previously lived in terrible conditions for the majority of their life, and after they’ve been liberated, this person joined a band that plays popular music. Like most prospective celebrities I’ve heard of, this person gradually became more and more narcicistic over a period of time. Then they start acting like a total hypocrit by first preaching that we should all be grateful for what life has given us, and then they’d turn around and accuse you of being envious of their life or whatever. Who in their sane mind would say or do such a thing? It’s just completely abserd to me.
I have never appreciated how guys use their clever tactics to impress the girls by acting all tough and or girly. That’s not real and honest mating. How do other animals mate? How do humans in other parts of the world mate? I’ll cover that in another post.

My Fascinations with Digital Telecommunication Systems

Ever since I was about seven or eight years old, I learnt how to distinguish the sound of each note, hence how I developed my absolute pitch. At the time, I didn’t know that there were others like me, such as Joybubbles, a famous telephone phreak or phreak known for whistling into the telephone to make long-distance calls for free. However, I discovered that I could apply this perfect pitch to understand not only musical notes, but also use it for learning to dial the telephone, or recognise certain textures of sound pertaining to several digital modes such as fax machines or dial-up systems. At the time, I knew that these were tones that a person could associate with these things. When I started getting more technical in later years, I learned that computers used tones in various forms of frequencies and waveforms to communicate to each other audibly and mathematically through long distances. These tones also included different types of noise as well. That brings me to something I just discovered. Up to this point, I did not know that the emergency alert systems found on television and radio used tones to send encoded messages across the network, yet when I heard the tones I associated them with an emergency message, which actually turns out to be an added benefit because it sounds like an alarm. I did a bit of research and learnt that the series of tones I was hearing was called the specific area message encoding, or SAME. It is used by software-defined radios, so if you have an NOAA weather radio, you might see the text of the message on your screen. The mode that amateur radio operators would use is called AFSK, or audio frequency shift keying.
As blind people, and maybe some deaf-blind people, we tend to be more aware of our surroundings with our third or mind’s eye or ears. We are able to see and hear beyond, like in ‘The Giver’. This doesn’t mean that we cannot see and or hear physically, but it just means we are able to view the world differently. Perhaps that is why the ham radio community treats people with disabilities as VIP’s. I have been able to recognise speech synthesisers that you would normally find in screen readers on places like the public city bus, in movies, the ATM, and other keosks. Of course, this doesn’t mean that blind people are the only ones who know about it, for certainly there must be a number of abled people who know about these things, only the majority of them are not recognised by the general public. I know a number of amateur radio operators, and as mentioned in my post, blind people seem to develop their own culture that is devoted to the mannerism associated with radio communications. This leaves outsiders who cannot conform to the culture to be overwhelmed because we cannot understand their close-mindedness. I didn’t think I’d join them several years later, but I did, and I plan to help anyone else who might need it. I certainly don’t believe in the whole brogrammer thing.
I looked into the phantom flute phenomenon where, if you play two flutes in the high ranges, you will often hear a third flute that is not present. This is due to the resultant (sum or difference of two frequencies) that I was picking up. As a prospective piano tuner, I had to know what these were, and how they would get in the way when I was tuning really high strings. The same applies for dual-tone multi-frequency or DTMF tones. When you dial a number or letter, two given frequencies that are predetermine create a unique texture that allows a person to know what is being dialed. In FBI and other forms of criminal investigation, people like us who enjoy tinkering with data transmissions can listen to numbers being dialed so we can track the numbers of the party the person is calling. This same principle applies to people who are incapable of measuring heart and breathing rate save for the equipment they are using. Since I am pretty good at estimating beats per minute, I don’t think I’d really need something to tell me what it was. The same goes for counting drops in an IV line. When I learned how to differentiate beatings, I also learnt how to calculate frequencies that humans cannot hear based on how they feel. I could mention in a job interview that I can calculate a person’s heart rate, or a tremor based on my knowledge and muscle memory. I can calculate how fast a fly’s wing is buzzing while scientists had to use expensive equipment to do that. It’s a shame, because they could have matched the tones using a free programme like audacity and the recording of the insect’s wings.
While making these discoveries, I knew I wanted to try out a facsimile machine, and use dialup, despite the fact that people said those things were going out of date and that dialup was slow. It wasn’t because of the obvious that I wanted to use these systems, but it was because I was fascinated by the sounds it made when it communicated across the telephone line. Amateur radio operators have successfully connected to the internet using only their radios. So, if I wanted to send an E-mail whilst out in the wilderness, I could easily do that with the right equipment. I was wondering if, some day in the future, transhumans could decode various digital protocols the way we can already understand Morse code , without using implanted devices. CW, or continuous wave, is considered to be a form of digital data. I got inspired by this idea when someone told me that scientists would be able to upload brain waves that escaped from your ears into a database. They would burn those brain waves onto a CD, which would hold some form of music. Let’s say you are dancing. They would be able to record how your brain behaves when you dance. If they could copy that into a computer and replay it back in a room full of people, then everyone would start dancing because their brains would be decoding the brain waves, unless there were genetic markers that would only make it so you were the one to dance.
Update: I got my ham radio licence on 11 March 2019, though I took the test on 2 March. Part of the reason I’ve been wanting to get my licence for a long time was because I read a book by Victor Appleton, or whoever the real writer was, and one of the books was called Tom Swift and his Wireless Message, or, the Castaways of Earthquake Island. There, I learned about how some people built a wireless station to call for help, and how they were rescued in the nick of time before the island sank.
So, I have met other blind people who shared this same passion of mine, and we believe that if more people were interested in a certain way, not to the point where we know all about it, but to a certain extent, we could change the world in getting more people to pay attention more closely. What do you all think? I think we can learn how to be more aware of our surroundings if we just stopped retreating into our iWorld environment and get out into the real world, because the iWorld is for people who are close-minded and selfish and the real world is for people who really care. We need to keep onto empathy and compassion.

Home Electrolysis Hair Removal Systems, are they any good?

When I began to look at the art of electrolysis as a vocational career, I have run into several controversial marketing and sales issues regarding home systems that do not work as they are supposed to, and what discipline a person must possess to be able to treat themselves efficiently and expertly. I decided to put in my own views on this matters and focus on as many sides as possible to try and encompass all the issues.
Last summer of 2013, I heard about a small, battery-operated gismo called the One Touch Clean and Easy Deluxe Home Electrolysis system. This page explains about what the machine does. As a blind person, I discovered that no where on the manual or web site said that vision is required to use the product. I can say from experience t hat you can feel the areas you are treating. However, because the world consists mainly of light-dependent sighted individuals, it makes sense to use your vision more and pretend that visual deprivation will not make a difference. It does make a difference, because you can pay attention to detail using your tactile and auditory senses.
Another reason why home electrolysis is not recommended is because of lack of skill in the average consumer.

While this may be true in most cases, I believe that if a prospective professional electrologist were to be successful, they must first understand how the treatment works from a technical standpoint, and then develop good and safe operating habits. If they choose, they can treat themselves. However, in our society, self-image and integrity are important than the will to care for others. That’s why people do not have discipline to really learn the procedure. Ignorance and stupidity can make treatment more painful if not done properly. Again, this might be true, but this is because this person is not willing or motivated to taking the time to really do the job well.

Whilst self-treatment is an option, it can pose as a danger to the electrology profession because less people are paying to have it done for them, and the fact that people have more control over their pain threshold than if it were done professionally. Again, I think there needs to be a balance, such as using sensation transmission to bond the client and professional together via use of electrodes on the brain, or using nitrous oxide and oxygen to relax the client during the procedure. I often find myself listening to music and or an audiobook while I undergo the treatment, as it helps me concentrate more on those than on the stinging sensation I get each time. Again, electrologists who are capable of treating themselves are highly encouraged to join the electrology field so that they can pay back in ways money can’t do. Better yet, learn the family of endogenous opioids and learn how to create them naturally.

Five months later, I came across a system called the Vector Professional Electrolysis System Trademark, which uses an unknown load of voltage and current to destroy hair with tweezers and a conductivity gel. Or, at least that’s how it’s supposed to work. However, I’ve been checking on Hair Facts’s hair removal section and things to avoid. I should point out that the information is out of date, as this happened in 2001. A lot has changed since then.
I did some comparison between the Deluxe manual and Vector User Guide.

Here are a few examples.

  • Both the One Touch manual and Vector User Guide indicate that the products must be used by people eighteen and older, and to keep away from children.
  • The Vector User Guide explains the procedure of how hair removal works using chemical reactions. The One Touch manual does not explain this very clearly.
  • The Vector Electrolysis web site indicates that battery-operated devices do not emit the kind of current that is found on professional systems. The One Touch system is battery-operated, and is a whole lot cheaper than the Vector system. Someone once stated that the cheaper the system, the high chances is that it will work than those that are more expensive.
  • The One Touch manual references warranty up to a year for any damage. The Vector User Guide does not. The only place I have seen this for the Vector is on the Active Forever site.
  • On the Vector Electrolysis web site, there are consistent misspellings of the words then and than, and in a few instances, the word electrologist is written as electrolygist. On their contact form, the letter N is missing in the word functional thereby making it fuctional
  • The One Touch manual makes a list of conditions in which a user must not use this product. In the case of the Vector User Guide, the only reference there is to such conditions are heart problems and use of a pacemaker, but everything else has been omitted. This is because the device uses a grounding electrode pad, which the One Touch does not use.
  • With any kind of current, it makes sense that the more intense the current is, the less time is required to remove the hair. The Vector User Guide makes note of this, but the One Touch Deluxe system does not, but it does make a vague reference to this.
  • The One Touch System emits a five-second tone with several unusual harmonics, indicating that the current is flowing. After five seconds, if the circuit is still complete, it will continue to beep for another five seconds. This is not referenced in the manual. I usually count three five-second beeps before I remove the probe.
  • There has not been any clinical trials or scientific publications stating that hair can conduct electricity when applied with the gel. This raises one question. Why? Can scientists not afford to open such a study where professionals and consumers can participate in clinical trials, and if they are as effective as claimed, then they can be safe to use?
  • The Vector User Guide recommends that you wax or tweeze hair before the actual treatment itself, as this makes the underlying environment to be highly moist. The One Touch manual does not make such an indication.
  • The company that makes the Vector system says that they have a needle, which requires a license to purchase. However, they do not recommend using a needle, as this can increase the risk for infection and also increase the likelihood of a person being shocked.
  • A reviewer of this product said that the electric tweezers don’t grasp the hair well, thereby making it nearly impossible to treat, but they believe it worked for them.
  • The Vector User Guide makes a note of when to treat hair during which growth phase. The One Touch manual does not.
  • All in all, each company is trying to convince you to buy their products to make their own profit, which is common in capitalism.

Having said all that, there is a concern that the public does not clearly know how to distinguish fact from fiction or quackery.

Companies are so good at convincing people in making them believe that their products work well when they have not the proof, other than to make redundant statements throughout their web site. Let’s take this a little further.
As stated above, no scientists have studied these products. All companies had to do was put the United States Food and Drug Administration logo based on junk or sound science. As an alternative, we have become too dependent on the government, and as a conspiracy theorist, I believe the public is ignorant about how to overcome these issues. It is time for newer and more holistic measures to be taken. We should not be suing companies for things that they have no proof over. If you want to see proof, a scientific study must be conducted between a chemist, a physicist and an electrical engineer, along with professional and amateur electrologists to really make sure the product does work for all kinds of skins and hair contrasts. If not, scientists can use genetic modification to close the hair pores and change the skin type. That itself is another matter, as surgical hair removal is not yet being performed except for hair transplants.

In conclusion, I think it is up for the consumer to experiment which systems work well, even though they might be putting themselves at risk for injury. My best advice is to just be smart. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, I’d be glad to address any concerns you may have. I may also update this post if I find more information that might be useful.

An Update on my Aeroplane Travelling Adventures

A while back, I posted my experiences of travelling in an aeroplane for the first time, but I’ve learned a lot about how things work, and why they work the way they do. You might also recall that I had published an eBook version on SmashWords. In recent years, I acquired a really awesome Yeti Blue stereo microphone, and though it was rather cumbersome to be toting around, I had used it to record some typical plane sounds that people could use to know how it would sound.
One thing I liked talking about in my book was the physics and the vestibular illusions pilots are trained to avoid. For instance, the pilot of this this aircraft safety site I went to described bankings as sort of a sensation you feel like you are dropping. As a blind person, I had no way of knowing if I were turning to the left or to the right unless it made a sharp bank. Similarly, I could not tell how high or low we were, for I could not see what was outside the window. So, a yaw is sort of like a swivel or pivot, while a roll is more like a lean to one side. The poster said that planes don’t use their tail rudders to spin as it would be too slow of a turn, but instead it uses ailerons to bank or yaw. The elevator, or stabilator is what gives it its pith.
So, what exactly is a pitch, a role and a yaw. One is X, one is Y, and one is Z, According to geometry, those are not the only things. A figure can move literally in any form, but looking at it on paper, which is two dimensions is rather difficult. It’s not only math we’re looking at here, but it’s how our vestibular and visual systems respond to dynamic and static motion or position. According to an article on Wikipedia, it explains how humans perceive motion with greater technicality than I can understand at this time. The same can be applied for other kinds of movement, like flying, encountering a turbulence, going upside down really fast, experiencing weightlessness and free-fall, you name it. I had the opportunity to practise flipping and somersalting in water, and I really enjoyed it. My hope is to someday learn to SCUBA dive.
I was hoping to contact the author of the previous article to see if they could include audio clips of some of the common sounds a person might hear in an aircraft, but so far I haven’t had any of such luck. Still, that might matter much if I have some of them recorded. For instance, I wanted to see what would happen if I placed a recorder inside my checked luggage. I heard a lot of interesting sounds.
As always, any suggestions on how I can obtain applied kinaesthetic and analogus complicated concepts would be very helpful.

Using Augmented Reality as a Real-Life Test for Prospective Transgender Individuals

It’s been a month since my previous post, but during that time I’ve been working on my story and that has been going well. I am going to spend more time here writing it as I curl up on the couch in the den with a pair of headphones hooked up to my TV, with earbuds underneath so I can listen to my computer at the same time. You know, ever since I started losing hearing, I wondered why I can sometimes hear better when voices are coming out of the speaker. Does it have to do with the ratio of bass to trebble? I need to research wireless audio amplification devices from major companies like Serene Innovations, ClearWire, and more. I Can Connect will only cover these if they are telecommunications-related.
So, the groundhog must have known spring would not yet come for a while. Coincidentally, Superbowl XLVIII fell on this very same day. Of course, Phil, as the groundhog is sometimes called, made this prediction at seven in the morning. This means we’ll have six or more weeks of winter. I’m not sure how many of you are superstitious, but it’s kind of interesting nonetheless. Anyhow, I digress, so I’ll go ahead and get down to business.
While I was writing my story and collecting resources to cight, I noticed that a lot of people, especially teenagers and tweenagers were coming out as transgender. The number of these folks have been rising, and it is believed that there are some cultural influences behind it. Is it due to prevalence in the media? This has led me to fancy that many say they are transgender, but when they begin the actual treatment, they would regret their changes or any irreversible effects that were caused by medical interventions. As an optimist in the science of transhumanism, I believe the day will come when nothing will be permanent any more. There’s been advances in speculative stories about using nano, pico, and femtotechnology that would physically change your body, so that stem cells would not be needed to regrow the organs and transplant them. In some stories the stem cells only work with male-to-females, all the way down to the chromosomes, but if it were to be applied to female-to-males, the procedure would kill them because the Y-chromosomes would not be able to be converted from one of the X’s. But, why not get a donor chromosome, similar to a third biologically female parent donating healthy mitochondria? Still, many of these stories do not have bibliographical references to back them up. I have been looking at these things whilst writing my own. I also learned about medically-induced comas that could be used if the body changes too fast, so the patient would not be in great pain. That would be like Rip Van Winkle, or giving humans the ability of hibernation. While the brain is deeply unconscious, the body changes. When they wake up, they would feel as if they were reborn, which, in some cases, is true. In other circumstances, the body changes while the patient is conscious and alert. In these situations, the patient’s mind and thinking patterns have time to synchronise with the body, but a comatosed patient would have to wait until after they changed. The question then becomes, are they really sure they want to be the person they dreamed of being?
Let’s think about the kinds of motivations that make people want to change. Crossdressers who say they want to change from male to female say that their bodies sexualise females before their minds do, and they end up giving into these arousals. Some feel that females are dominating their society, and if they feel they are more dominant in certain areas they feel they would be one of those people to break the stereotype associated with masculism. A person who has prolonged persistence that they are in the wrong body has the proper thinking patterns as a female, so the changes will usually have little or no consequence on the patient than if it were done with crossdressers. For these reasons, the Harry Benjamin Standards of Care state that a prospective postoperative transsexual should take a certain amount of time taking the real-life experience. This is where the person must live full time as their preferred gender role and learn how to deal with experiences as they start to build their self-assurance. It won’t always mean that they will magically become a new person. If you were afraid of spiders before, you’d most likely still be afraid of spiders afterword. A lot of parents feel that their children are making a big mistake because they fear that if they change their mind, there would be no turning back. As stated in a story I read recently Living Transgender has lots of costs, not just in finance but in many other things, so a determined person would certainly need to be hellbent. There are a lot of problems in being the person they are inside. For instance, do women who want to be men feel they want to change just because they want to avoid rape and abuse, or do they feel that way ever since their infantile personalities have been developed? I know several people who have successfully transitioned without plastic surgery, an example being my story. In fact, people implant technology just to treat diseased tissue, but looking at the bioethics, do we change healthy tissue just for aesthetic and cosmetic purposes? What if we had future technology that could use the healthy tissue as a host to change the structure without actually having it removed and replaced with a facsimile.
Let’s look at what someone has written about what they feel is not necessary about a real-life experience. I have been giving this some thought. In my story, I used the concept of oneirology (the study of dreams) and memory implantation as a way to help the protagonist decide if they really wanted to be female before they got there. As you all know, living in the body of a different sex has a completely different, if not similar, set of sensations related to skin sensitivity and other things, as well as brain structure to allow more emotions to flow through. What if we could interveen by using technology to help influence a person’s dream, give them a virtual reality experience that uses the person’s memories, sort of as an age regression technique to build the foundations to a memory the person will never forget. Would it help a prospective transsexual say, ‘No, I don’t want to change. It’s too overwhelming and confusing for me’? If that were the case, everyone would undoubtedly save a lot of time and money rather than if they have said that after their sex-reassignment surgery.
Although I may be jumping too far ahead into the future, there is no doubt that this could benefit thousands of people, but still, there is a strong opposition and controversy over these things. The question is, why is there such dispute? It’s mainly because of religion that dominates society, and the ignorance people have about science, and things people see in science-fiction media in popular culture, which much of it is untrue. As fascinating as it seems, a lot of it remains questionable. What would we use to control what a person dreams? Do we use mind-uploading and mind-reading technology to manipulate someone’s memories using light-sensitive proteins, or do we use hypnosis and our brains’ ability to recreate sensations based on similar sensations it has recorded?
Having said that, I hope that we can get there sooner than later, as I know there are people anxious to transition in a natural and biological method so that they can continue reproducing as before. Let’s continue to help educate the people we talk to in hopes of eliminating stigma surrounding these issues.

Things to be Covered in the New Year, part 2

Understanding Norrie Disease: I wrote this next part to see if I could explore some of the rare diseases that make people blind, deaf, developmentaly-disabled, etc that are among many other rare diseases affecting mainly biological males, so this is just one of such that I plan to write about.
First of all, Norrie Disease is a rare genetic defect, but what actually causes it, and how is it present? What treatment and cures are currently being worked on? You will get to know how this disease works once you have an understanding of how genes work.
What are genes? Genes are a set of instructions, composed of DNA and RNA sequences, sort of like the strip of a magnetic strip on bank cards used by computers to access a specific set of impulses. Better yet, a gene is like a set of blueprints to building a house. It provides detailed instructions on what the body should produce, when to produce and develop, how to produce, etc. That is why we have mitosis, and our body replaces itself every seven or ten years. Scientists have begun to understand the aspects involved in eugenics, which is isolating one good trait over bad ones. It’s much like a form of human domestication by telling smart people to mate, so that the number of stupid people would gradually reduce. Traits are characteristics based on several kinds of genes. There are physical traits such as build, complexion, hair and eye colour, body fat storage, bone structures, melanim production, hormone and neurotransmitor production, and many, many more. There are also traits devoted to the brain, called mental (left hemisphere) and emotional )right hemisphere) traits. This includes things like how many hormones you are making, how many neurotransmitors you have present, among others, as well as the aforementioned physical traits. Note that these traits can be modified to some extent during an adult’s life, but others might require nerve stimulation or new cell receptors and muscles (to activate tongue-rolling), which may be absent if the genes for these are not present. These things are what determines a person’s outlook in life, such as being smart or dumb, and the list goes on.
What happens in Norrie Disease? Typically, this gene is linked to the X chromosomes, which is why males are definitely going to have it more than females, since the extra X chromosome would compensate for it, unless both X chromosomes were affected, or if they happened to have a Y, which is also rare. The gene’s origin begins with a mutation, such as a virus or infection, or something else entirely, such as neurotoxins, though viruses and bacteria are the basis for gene therapy. When Norrie Disease is present, it begins the process by damaging cells of varying types in the eyes that are already developing, and nerve cells in the ears, and in some cases, the brain is affected. This is why many patients are born without knowing what it is like to see. Depending on the severity of the gene, birth order, and gene expression, some cells, especially those in the cochlea, may be fully developed, but if the proper protein does not give them sustenance, they would eventually die out.
How was Norrie discovered? An ophthalmologist from Denmark started studying seven different people from the same family, and each of these people were male and were past descendants from the first generation. The disease was named after another famous ophthalmologist named Gordon Norrie, who was recognised for his great achievement in working with the blind during the mid to late nineteenth century and into the twentieth.
Causes and Effects of the Gene: Norrie is caused by several mutations found in genes called NDP, located in Xp11.4, and its ID number is 4693). Causes of mutation vary greatly. For future reference, all genes are either binary or somewhere in between, meaning the gene is dominant or recessive, but rarely switch depending on expression and epigenetics. This means you could carry the genetic coding, you could be mutated with this gene, or both. To illustrate this example, use a Punnett Square that can show you which are dominant and which are recessive. Capital letters indicate positive and lower-case letters indicate negative. In a Punnett Square, there are four letters, sometimes distributed equally, sometimes distributed based on chromosomes, and sometimes distributed by a mix of all of these. In order to understand this concept further, you must know what a phenotype, genotype, hybrid, purebred, pedigree, and family tree is. Better yet, take a genetics-101 course for a non-technical explanation on these terms and their etymologies. It helps if you understand the root and stem words of each term, for these are how they have been coined.
Please note: A mutation is when a given sequence or set of instructions is left unfinished (truncated). Take this string of letters, don’t worry about what they mean just yet. A turns into T, T into A, G into C, and C into G. In the second stage, A turns into U, T into A, and C G remain the same. U becomes A, and T becomes A. A very common mutation is TAG, which is usually found at the beginning of a sequence. In genetics terminology, we call this transcription and translation. We say transcription because the gene is being converted from DNA to RNA. Once that’s done, it needs to be translated to form a protein. In other words, mutations finish their job prematurely, leaving the cells affected. This is why people can be mutated to eating certain proteins from products that have them as well as how things are digested like gluten. We will discuss these later on.
What happens when Norrie is present and the gene is mutated? To understand this concept, you must understand how proteins work. We all know that meats and eggs have proteins. In fact, anything that can walk, run, swim and fly has protein. Proteins is what DNA and RNA are composed of. DNA stands for desoxirribonucleicacid, and RNA, ribonucleic acid, is what people use to match characteristics, such as determining which person was responsible in a crime. All of these proteins have a three-dimensional shape, and can be demonstrated using molecular models and high-powered microscope slides once cells have been coloured with dye, suspended in division and expanded using osmosis. The shape of a DNA is like a spiraling latter with its backbones curving to form a double-helix. The rums of the latters contain four distinct articles (base pairs) one set on every rum. This DNA can be found anywhere throughout the body, such as skin, hair, nails, blood, and other body fluids.
In Norrie Disease, the mutated gene called NDP, instructs a protein called norrin how to set its foundation. Norrin is responsible for the development and sustenance of the structures that make up the retinas, cochlear hair cells, etc. As you know, norrin consists of several amino acids that give it its shape. When the NDP gene is mutated, however, this protein doesn’t form properly and becomes mis-folded, giving it an unusual shape. Think about a lopsided house or something of that nature. When this happens, the protein is unable to function, and therefore the back end of the eyes are unable to develop properly.
Other things Norrie Disease can affect include hearing, balance, excretion problems, and mental and or emotional development disorders. It is believed that norrin is responsible for supplying blood flow to the retinas and tissues of the inner ear. There are immature cells forming in the back of the eye, which causes degeneration of important cells and blood vessels. Norrin abnormalities can also affect which parts of the brain are developed, such as neurosteroids and neurotransmitors. However, it should be taken into account that individuals with prelingual deafness do not develop speech and language skills, and for this -reason many blame mental disorders when in fact that is not the case. For example, my older brother, who was the first born, did not have any chance to develop speech and language, so his primary means of communication is through his behaviour.
Severity of the disease is variant on how many amino acids have been mutated and their location or expression. Few mutations ensures that the person will not be as affected than if a person had widespread complications. It has been documented that males with Norrie disease have behavioural problems, but at this time there are too many biological factors to determine the causes of such findings.
Futuristic Outlook and Testing: As of 2014, little research has been conducted to find better methods of testing the molecular structure and mutation of the genes, and although they are accurate, as far as we know no attempt was made to replace the mutated gene with a healthy one to see if the rewritten gene would correct the protein’s structure. If the protein structure were to be corrected, would the eye structures start developing again, or would we need to turn our attention to finding the right growth factors to grow epidermal stem cells the way birds can? Studies have shown that prolonged exposure to how we interact with our environment based on how we socialise and how we identify with our culture gets written into our genetic coding, but there are some genes, such as the NDP that cannot be rewritten once it has been mutated. Current research shows that once a gene has been modified in an organism, that organism usually develops negative side effects, cancer being one of them. We still don’t yet know why this is. Research to sensory substitution and augmentation for people blind at birth still continues, despite the controversy found in the blind community. This may be relevant to how cochlear implants are being contradicted in the deaf culture, which is symbolised by a stab in the neck in American Sign Language. It is hoped that a creation of a new virus or bacterium could reverse the gene’s mutation without leaving harmful side effects in the future. If we work on funding basic research rather than solely focusing on one specific disease, then we can build on that basic research to cure all diseases.

Lastly, why do people not use anaesthetics like nitrous oxide when undergoing cosmetic enhancements, like piercings and tattooing? I don’t see any reason they should, so why shouldn’t they? According to Bill Nye’s the History of Anatomy and PHysiology, many people believed that pain should be tolerated, especially for cosmetic purposes as a symbol of having to suffer to get what you want. If all pain was relieved, people would almost never learn what their limits were. It is hoped that regrowing tissue with stem cells and right growth factors can replace plastic surgery.

Things to be Covered in the New Year, part 1

Happy New Year to all who are following my blog. This year, I hope to cover a little over what I went over last year, and discuss some aspects of how transhumanism can have an impact with our environment and cultures so we can figure out how to correct nature’s mistakes, like HIV and AIDS, diabetes, cancers, creating and taking down cell receptors responsible for addiction and physical dependence, and more.
So, let’s begin. I have been thinking about how people of younger generations don’t get the meaning of respect, that instead of evolving we are (d)evolving because people are out for image to satisfy their own flesh, and not one another. Of course, John Locke pointed that out several hundred years ago, but it has become more wide-spread, just like strokes and other things meant for older people are prevailing among teenagers. Now, I have done plenty of scientific investigation as to why these things happens. It turns out that many people have rewired their genetic coding that produces neurosteroids and such that makes proper mental development. It is not only the fact that we are capable of rewriting our genes, but our environment and culture plays an influence, like how much repetition and nurture we have had, and, even as babies, how much we have been breast-fed. It also depends on how stable your families were, how much positivity you have received, and how personal you have taken negative criticism. All of these play a role on how your thought patterns will turn out in the end. These are called the walks of life, or your schemas. Some experience anxiety problems, depression, irritability, and more. I have been trying to look at ways to induce such problems and then get rid of them so we can widen our world view. I have heard that people with too much dopamine gives them illusions like hearing voices of people they talk to a lot, or those of strangers. How does this work for people who have never heard in their life? I have never heard voices in my life, but I would be interested in knowing of a way to ingest something that will do it temporarily, but the voices should be saying positive things about me. Now, as exciting as all this might sound, I want to remind all of you that these scientific findings can help enrich our society so that we wouldn’t have ignorant people questioning those in the minority and accusing them of faking it. A lot of them just tell you the obvious, but hardly don’t get into depth.
Ever since I started paying attention to the news full-time in 2008, I found it quite stupid that we have prisons, and we spend time sending criminals to be locked for a costly sum, and then killing them if they do not reform. Many people think it would be dystopian or immoral to send these criminals to science labs to have their brains altered, their body chemistry permanently altered using engineering techniques, and possibly a technique to induce total amnaesia-like characteristics. In a way, you are rewriting their personality. You are using science to turn a bad person into a good citizen. However, something must motivate a person for killing another person. I was wondering, could it be possible to restore a dead person to life if we could salvage their DNA? Their personalities may be the same as the old person, but they wouldn’t have the same memories. They may look the same to you, but something will remind you that it is not the exact person, because they would have to learn everything. They would be relearning the old person’s memories, since this is a clone of the person who was murdered. I have asked people from varying religions, and most of them think it is due to choices a person can make. In dystopian societies, people are prevented from making their own choices so that they would not regret their mistakes in the community. I think we all should have the freedom to make our own choices as long as we have the proper balance in our system to deal with the consequences.
How does a person manage to be motivated to committing a crime when they take drugs that has them physically addicted? What does it mean to be high, buzzed, blazed, etc? Does it cause them to lose total awareness of their surroundings, and make the person act as if they were sleep-walking? Many universities have been looking at the biological and physiological causes of physical dependence to see if we could come up with a cure, not only for alcohol, but for the opioid epidemic, as well. In cases where nicotine is inhaled or applied using a skin patch, scientists were trying to create new cell receptors in the brain to see if they could stimulate the reward system by using the right key, if you imagine the receptor as a lock. Many people describe it as having a feeling as if something exciting were about to happen (this is how yellow and white light makes us feel). People also say that babies are addicted because of those cell receptors being transmutated into their genome, but that only gives me one question. How will that baby know, when old enough that they are addicted if they have never taken that drug before? It turns out that our body can develop tolerance to any drugs, whether they have an effect on the brain, like Propranolol. If you suddenly stop taking it, you would experience withdrawal symptoms. Will it feel like having this extra sense that you are hungry, but no matter how much you eat or get enough air, there is something that you can’t seem to get unless you stimulate those receptors or destroy them all at once? I heard that there were some studies that examined the relationship between cravings, proteins, hormones, and which emotions are related to them.
Ever since I wrote up that short article on vocal analysis, I came up across something very interesting called the voice of the castrato. When I analysed the harmonics of these voices, they came out with very unique characteristics that make them sound neither male or female. They have their own way in terms of how they sound. They underwent a lot of training once they have been castrated before puberty, but they grew exceedingly tall, pale-skinned, and most had no muscular build, and many lost bone density. They weren’t trans because they didn’t undergo hormone replacement therapy, they were just prevented from developing secondary sex characteristics. In the GLBTQIA community, in the arts encyclopedia, they were called the castrati, Italian for castrated in plural form. Scientists have been looking at how to recreate the once dead voice into a live voice by using what we know about sound.
A few days ago, I came across some naturopathic literature that had several techniques of treating things like thyroid problems that are sometimes the cause of depression and anxiety, metabolism problems and such, and how we can treat them using amino acid therapy rather than use medicines that do more harm than good. I once asked, are such emotions enhanced by drugs even though they are context-dependent? For example, if I drank coffee every day and felt fine, but one day I was worrying about something unrelated..would the caffeine enhance that anxiety? I have also been trying to see if there were naturopathic neurologists working on a cure to low and high-grade haemorrhages and seizures. That brings me to talking about the split-brain patient. When a person has no way of connecting the two halves of the brains together via the corpus callosum, they end up having unusual visual reactions, and several patients could draw shapes with each hand independently. Sometimes, people are startled to see that their hand, the one not intended to be used, is moving and grabbing objects. Is there a more humane way of cutting off the electricity between the regions and the two halves without using surgery? I thought that if we could attach these to sighted people, we could temporarily deprive them of vision and visual memory, or hearing to simulate deaf-blindness. Since the year 2009, it has been discovered that we have done a lot of misdiagnosing on people whom we thought were in a coma, but who actually turned out to be fully-conscious and completely paralysed but unable to respond to any kind of stimuli, yet their brain works very well and were still able to perceive and reason. What if a brain transplant could give them deparalysis? Sergio Canavero was talking about doing just that in 2017, but it wouldn’t work for a brain injury, only a body one.
How I plan to do deep-brained stimulation without cutting into the brain and implanting electrodes is going to be the hard part, but when I researched, I discovered I could look at several different inventions and see if I can apply physics to these. We know that the brain uses glucose for fuel. So what if we charged this radioactive fuel with a positive charge, and once the body has been polarised, then all we need do is discharge it in the right part of the brain. We are fortunate that outer-brain stimulation can be achieved because the electricity and magnetism could go through the scalp and skull. That’s why we have devices like the neuron-engineering and transcranial magnetic stimulation device, which I think some day will help blind people how to see. In a science-fiction story, it was suggested that if we used this energy, we could figure out if the mind can be altered and carried across the electricity between a body that has been negatively charged and vice versa. The problem is that the mind is not just stored into one part of the brain. The mind is distributed everywhere, which is why mind-uploading would be extremely hard to do, even body-swapping without any form of transplantation. So, what gives parts of the brain responsible for identity? Can we use light-sensitive proteins to map out memories?

An Analysis on the Singing and Speaking Voice

In this brief post, we will look over the two kinds of intonations used in the voice you use when you speak in several situations, and those you use when you sing. If you compare the two, you’ll find that they are very different. Take this, for instance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nr9JQ-oF3jQ what do you notice in this example? The fundamental frequencies range from180-300 HZ, with very high resonance, with chronological age of eleven years, as measured by our calendar system for the speaking voice. In some countries, we do not celebrate birthdays or chronological ages at all.
The singing voice, however, is far more different. The fundamental frequencies not only follow the notes corresponding to the tuning system given to the singer, but the resonance is altered to give it an etherial hypnotic effect. Let’s try a quick test. If you say the sound “ah” in your normal voice, for males, the resonance will be deeper than that of females. Likewise, if a male were to apply the singing voice to the “ah”, then his resonance would be even deeper. This means that the correlation with the speaking and singing voice vary directly because the voice of the female will also deepen in resonance when she applies her singing voice. This is not to say that it is directly related to facial and laryngeal structures in different sexes, as they can vary widely.
How does one achieve this goal, and why do many not know about it? The first thing to understand is that sound is simply a wave. A pure tone is a sound that sounds like a hum, without any extra tones above or below it. These extra notes are called harmonics. We calculate the harmonics based on the integer that can be multiplied by 2X. Noise is an irregular sound vibration, another concept to keep in mind. Children have the same kind of vocal range before puberty, but some learn to talk the way they should according to their gender assignment. Males tend to speak with a dark, sinister sound while females speak with a brighter, more cheerful tone. Of course, if you were to be among lots of children and you were blind, your only cues are to figure out who is who based on these characteristics. Also note that there may be overlaps, which makes us misgender a person if we can’t see them or if they are using a communication device.
To begin with, many people get used to hearing what their own voices sound like when it vibrates inside their head via bone conduction, which is why they don’t like to hear what they sound like in a recording. People with perfect pitch are able to make adjustments to their voices in a matter of seconds, and they learn to memorise just how much work is needed to apply that effect. That’s why some say, “It came from God”. It’s up to you to believe it or not, but in reality, they just listened to what something sounded like and started imitating it until they achieved the quality they wanted. They kept on doing this subconsciously until they had the memory wired into their brain. Deaf people do not have auditory awareness. As an example, crank up your music to full volume until you can no longer hear your voice through your earbuds. Then try saying a few sentences whilst recording, and then play it back. Did you mispronounce anything?
You must have some basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology to understand how chambers work, and what you can do to manipulate them with your cerebrum and cerebellum. One unique characteristic about opera singers is that their vibrato measures approximately around six to seven beats per second, but in some old phonograph records, people had a faster vibrato of eight to nine beats per second. This is caused by totally relaxed muscles slowly contracting and relaxing again. This causes the fundamental frequency of the voice to go up and down in pitch in rapid succession. The same can be done for overtone (harmonics)), but it would need the work of moving the tongue up and down. Now, how we make our resonance chamber bigger is by opening up the throat, as if we were yawning. This forces your vocal tract to expand, the glottis to be half-open to make the voice have a breathy quality, and the tone emitted by the vocal folds have lower harmonics.
There are several kinds of terms that describe the specific techniques used in singing. Legato means that you slowly link the vowels and consonants to each other and you give them a nice, easy flow. In some operas, the singer has to staccato to describe tention, and again, vibrato is a very important aspect of singing. In some pieces, there are spoken words called Sprechstimme and Sprechgesang. Legato falls under the category of rubato or adlib, where you play freely.
The reason many people are ignorant about why our voices sound so much different when we sing, such as what you witnessed in this example is because they cannot make this distinction clearly, even singers have trouble understanding this concept because all they learn is how to do this, without getting in depth. They do it without knowing that there are ways of describing it. Anyone can achieve this goal, even youngsters, as long as they have the motivation to learn this skill to pursue a career in the arts. What you would need to decide is whether you should self-teach and get no immediate feedback, or work with someone who has experience so you can be finely-tuned.
