What is infrasound and how it pertains to Bigfoot

What is infrasound and how it pertains to Bigfoot
Infrasound, also know as low-frequency sound, is sound that occurs at a frequency lower than 20 Hertz (Hz) or cycles per second. The typical limit of human hearing is above 30-40 cycles at best but is expressed at the maximums of 20 to 20,000 Hz. Hearing becomes gradually less sensitive as frequency decreases or increase above or below that range, so for humans to perceive infrasound, the force or intensity must be sufficiently high. The ear is the primary organ for sensing infrasound, but at higher intensities it is possible to feel infrasound vibrations in various parts of the body. After all sound is a mechanical wave and travels through liquid and solid better than air, and the body is just a bag of water supported by our skeletal structure.
Infrasound sometimes results naturally from severe weather, surf, earthquakes, volcanoes, waterfalls, and other phenomena and while humans and animals can feel these vibrations, they pose no threat. Infrasound is also generated by human-made processes such as sonic booms and explosions, machinery and even large subwoofer loudspeakers, the reason for a bounding headache at a rock concert other than loud bad music:)
Whales, elephants, hippos, rhinos, all the pachyderms generate infrasound as do other animals like giraffes and even gators. Infrasound to used as a form of long distance communicate, even over hundreds of miles in the case of whales. Whale sounds and even rhinos has been shown to produce infrasound frequencies as low as 3 Hz. When a tiger roars, not only is there audible sound but infrasound around 18 Hz and lower. Now it gets interesting. Animals have been known to perceive infrasonic waves going through the earth by natural disasters and use these as an early warning such as in tsunami were animals reported fleeing the area hours before the actual tsunami hit. Tigers and other animals are thought to also use infrasound to stun or confuse prey before attaching. Deer and other ungulates have been know to act confused instead of running prior to tigers attacking them. One study suggests that infrasound may cause feelings of awe or fear in humans as well and they often attribute this effect to something odd or that an actual supernatural event is taking place.
Now to Bigfoot. It is believed by many researches that Bigfoot can produce infrasound. With their nasal structure and large chest it is high within the realm of possibility and likely probable, and those of us that have experienced it first hand know it as fact. Gorillas are also known to produce infrasound as well so it is not that far of a stretch of science to attribute this effect to a creature as large as Bigfoot or Sasquatch. Some of the reported experiences of infrasound are, feel of dread or fear and a need to leave the immediate area, confusion, nausea and abdominal pain and even disorientation and dizziness. Some researchers, especially those that have experienced infrasound believe Bigfoot uses it to intimidate people to leave their area or in hunting like big cats. Now why is it that some experience infrasound with Bigfoot and others do not, and while some do onetime and then not at others? Some people are more sensitive to infrasound than other are, and it is likely that infrasound takes time to master and develop as a skill and possibly only older Bigfoot with a larger chest cavity can generate that frequency needed can produce infrasound.
There is a lot of research on infrasound, and currently the military is experimenting with its use as a form of non-lethal, or as currently being admitted, form of combat. Ask any questions and I will try to answer to the best of my ability and please feel free to share your own experiences that you think may be attributed to infrasound and your comments. I am always open to respectful comments and enjoy good debate as it stimulates thought and furthers knowledge and research.
