The Power of Ideas:
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for any unsystematic and unscientific usage of Binaural beats.
The idea is simple. It revolves around the mechanism of Binaural Beats. Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the room with the performers or instruments. The subconscious mind needs stimulation. A lot of research work is already underway. But what if there is room for improvements?
This is already out there. And you can use this in Warfare. 🙂 A sound that has a DE-motivational impact. It can be a beep or a vague audible sound that can demoralize the enemy. This may well turn war into a musical chair competition. It can also be an effective tactic in war. You can save the positive beats or minimal audible music or sound for your own Army.
Let us delve deeper into a hypothetical discovery. We will use the word beat for a sound that has a motivating or a demotivating impact on the human brain. Although, most of the wars are Atomic in nature. But, what if you have to face an actual and a physical Army? Facepalm!
Now if we have a closer look? We will want to have a special speaker system, that has the capability to deliver that sound to the area of the enemy. It is an Idea that keeps bugging me. And this can well be the right time to share it. The scope of this issue can be something that may need a writer on war tactics. It can be a funny proposition for some of the readers. Try it!
You can use a special beat to stimulate the brain or instill intelligence into the children. The children may listen to this beat or sound, for once or a single time in their lifetime. This can help the students become good at studies or concentration. You will need a lot of time, research and resources to help this proposition reach fruition.
This is already out there. The tricky part is to design the speakers or a delivery mechanism. Then you have the reflection in sound like that of light. Laws of reflection of light are applicable to sound waves as well: The incident wave, the normal to the reflecting surface and the reflected wave. And the point of incidence lies in the same plane. The angle of incidence ∠i is equal to the angle of reflection ∠r.
So, our basic challenge is to design a delivery mechanism:
Here is a look at some other ideas:
Send cute boxes in the enemy area. Use mini parachutes and once they land! The locals pick them up. They open a box and the same indistinguishable sound, that at its max intensity creates an impact. Warfare of this sort is also common where countries send waves, radioactive material etc.
You can also use gases to sabotage the health of the enemy area. The sky is the limit. Manufacturing an artificial earthquake or a Tsunami is becoming easier with technology. You can reflect heat on an area by using some large-scale reflectors.
But, what is the use of all this? Destruction! War gives birth to an unrest and a sense of resentment. You can not forget the destructive Hiroshima Nagasaki nuking. The keyword here is PEACE. With the passage of time, you will discover a new way to maintain your dominance on the weaker lot. But somehow, the equation does balance itself. You win some and you lose some. Some may argue that ” We do it as an act of self-defense”.
