"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

Hearing Sound: The Case of Whale Bones and Elephant Feet: or Why the Human Mind is not Confined to Mere Sense Certainty

Viewing sound as a form of energy propagation that is among the elements transformed for animals' survival, it is lawful that there might be a coincidence of capture of sound waves for diverse species with similar throughput and metabolism. So we find a functional connection between whales and elephants that confirms a principle of ordering in the biosphere of our planet. Thus, regarded from that standpoint, we have a one to one mapping in the functionally vectored phase space of sound.

Our knowledge of such a principle is not garnered through our own sensory apparatus, but instead through application of a distinct and unique ability of humanity to capture and transform an analogous wave-like transmission of creative thought from generation to generation. This type of progress characterizes the scientific method. As Petr Krisl, one of the researchers on whale hearing, pointedly stated: "There is a blueprint for multiple species and it is useful to compare across species to gain insight."
