Frequency of dog's bark

Topic: Hearing Pitch


February 1, 2014

sir can frequency of dogs vocal cord is equals to human frequency vocal cord




Just as dogs can hear sounds slightly above and below the frequency range for humans, their barks also extend slightly beyond the human range of speech.

Puppy seems to hear sound at same time every night

Topic: Hearing


January 13, 2014

There is a broadcaster on THE TODAY SHOW that claims her. Ew puppy runs around in circles at 5:03 pm eastern standard time for a minute nitely for no apparent reason. Could this be a radio or satellite broadcast unheard by human ears. They r in NYC. Thanks erin

Erin - USA



It could be in anticipation of getting supper. Or perhaps there is some high pitched alarm or signal that goes off at that time. It wouldn't a radio or satellite broadcast since those waves are electromagnetic.

Which animals have the best hearing?

Topic: Hearing


January 13, 2014

Can humans hear peoples and store alarm systems and what mammals/animals have the best hearing?

Erin - USA



The ears in many animals are shaped to focus sound, thus making their hearing more sensitive. Look at the ears of cats and mice for example.

The frequency range of the sound an animal or human can hear depends on what sounds they need to hear. Much of what a human hear is in the vocal frequencies. However, a cat needs to hear higher frequencies of mice and other animals they are hunting.

See: Hearing Pitch or Sound Frequencies for more information.

Used to be able to sense things about people

Topic: 6th Sense


December 21, 2013

I used to be able to since things about people not to the future or anything like that. I could sense where people have been what they had done where they were from sometimes our intentions. I could do this with people had never met before. For some reason I've almost lost his ability over the years I don't know if it's because I just stopped using it as much or maybe I showed off one time to maney but I only since things every now and then with certain people. I don't see spirits words to the future anything I just know things about people. And not nearly as often as I used to. If there's anything you could suggest to get this gift back or to help me with it it would be greatly appreciated.

Instead of sensing future events, you seem to have the ability to sense past events, especially what other people have done and such. But also, you've been able to read signals people give off about themselves, such as body language and even odors. Much of this comes from subtle observations--and not purposeful observations--you have made.

It seems that as people get older, their ability to sense future events diminishes. Likewise, for other types of special senses. One reason is that life becomes so cluttered and busy that you don't take time "to small the roses" as they say. Another reason is that you may be trying too hard.

Recall what you did and how you felt when you were able to sense things about other people. It wasn't trying hard, but it just seemed to flow and happen. By relaxing in your interactions you should be able to get those feelings and insight again. Just let it happen and don't dwell on it.

Hopefully this will help you get your "powers" back again.

Best wishes, and let me know how things work out.

Sensing when bad things will happen

Topic: 6th Sense


July 17, 2013

My name is Josh, I live in Winnipeg Manitoba. I am 24 years old.

I have had "feelings" or "sensing" when something bad is going to happen throughout my entire life. When I was 12, a few days before October 3, 2002 I had a bad feeling something was going to happen to someone close to me. On that day my grandfather past away. This has happened countless times since then but I have not kept track until recent. In January of 2012 I had this "feeling or sense" again. Mid January my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. Most recent was yesterday, July 16, 2013. I was telling friends/ co workers days prior that I have been feeling off and unsettled for the last 3 or 4 days then yesterday my sister got into an accident.

Josh - Canada



Thanks for sharing your experiences. Some people seem to have the ability to sense future event more than others. Unfortunately, it seems like they mainly sense bad things. But that may be because they are more traumatic. Sensing that something good will happen is often ignored as wishful thinking.

Several times I just knew I was going to win a raffle, and I did. That was better than sensing an accident.

I don't know what you can do about sensing bad things, but perhaps you could try to notice when good predictions came true.

Why can I feel things others can't?

Topic: 6th Sense


April 29, 2013

I am 24 years old and for as long as I can remember I have been able to see and feel things others couldn't! why? does this make me weird? and why does it only happen every now and then and not every day?

stephanie - USA



Everyone seems to have the 6th sense or precognition, as well as other extreme senses, such as sensing magnetic fields, except that they are weak senses.

Some people have greater sensitive toward the 6th sense than others. The strange thing about such mental senses is that the harder you try to use them, the less they work. Usually people can see the future, auras, or such when they relax and don't try.

Being able to sense what others can't can be annoying, especially since you hesitate to tell other about it.

The best thing is to accept it and look at it as a curiosity.

Color/taste synesthesia

Topic: Synesthesia


February 20, 2013

Can a person with synesthia that is color /taste only taste one color or would they taste every color they saw? Does it work like that?

Annette - USA



Color/taste synesthesia is not very common among those experiencing the phenomenon. Also, it seems to be limited to a few colors and tastes.

How do senses relate the knowledge?

Topic: General


February 17, 2013

the senses are the gateway to knowledge,discuss.

umar - Nigeria



You gain information about the world around you through your senses. Also, when people or even animals communicate, you interpret what your senses detect and turn the information into knowledge.

Without your senses, you would gain no knowledge.

Can I make my sixth sense stronger?

Topic: 6th Sense Check


December 25, 2012

i am interested in knowing more about the sixth sense. How are you able to make it stronger or more active? Is yoga required and if yes what kind of yoga excercises or meditiations?

nohely - USA



The sixth sense--or precognition--is being able to see future events. Everyone has this sense to a slight degree.

The big problem is that the harder a person tries to use this sense, the less it works. Just being aware of your senses and letting things flow seems to work the best. Yoga and mediation might be effective in helping to be more aware of this sense.

Think of times when you had a feeling that something would happen, and then that feeling came true. Try to duplicate how you felt at that time. This exercise can make you more aware of the sense.

Someone touched my spine at night

Topic: 6th Sense


October 28, 2012

I don't know what to make of what happened but am hoping you can help. I was awoken a few nights ago when it felt as though someone touched my spine from bottom to the top of my neck. I live alone and this frightened me. I need answers please.




Sometimes people can get physical reactions, such as hearing noises, smelling things, and feeling sensations while sleeping and dreaming. It probably was part of a nightmare.

It is highly unlikely it was something supernatural.

I used to wake up and see a certain picture on the wall glowing at night. I get rid of the picture and never had the problem again.

If you experience this sensation again, try to check things over or have some protection to give you assurance that you are safe.

Best wishes on not having that feeling again.
