Want to hear something really cool? Check out "God's Cricket Chorus" (link below). This recording of cricket song slowed down in ratio to the length of a human lifespan versus a cricket's lifespan gives me chills. It makes me wonder in what other ways nature and spirituality reflect each other. Musically, this has lots of fourths and fifths, which are comfortable intervals that are also often used in religious music. Is there a bigger significance? I'm not sure. I like to think there is.
