"I met a fisherman in Thailand who told me that his granddad showed him how to listen to the sounds of crackling shrimp, barnacles, and reef areas there, with an oar to the head. He was connecting without a hydrophone. Next time you go for a swim, put your head in the water, concentrate, and listen. You can hear it, but our ears have adjusted to listening for sound traveling in air and not in water.
I think we’ve had some kind of forgetting period in the history after industrialization. We’ve forgotten even what our grandparents have told us. We need to reconnect to that knowledge, I believe."
