"The ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her face..."
The human brain creates electromagnetic vibrations and waves which radiate out from the skull into the surrounding space. A transceiver could be devised that would be able to receive and decode these messages, and transmit like messages to another human. Indeed, two humans so equipped could communicate directly brain to brain. A whole earth of such humans could tune into a planet-wide symphony of celestial music.
It is readily apparent that electromagnetic waves such as these are not destroyed by distance or time; their effects are eternal. Not only could they be used to communicate over long distances between stars and galaxies, but they will remain until the final Omega Point of the universe billions of years from now; we truly are immortal, to the extent that we think.
These electromagnetic waves are like music in that they are complex sequences of frequencies and intensities. This human celestial music is amplified by the number of humans cogitating; to the extent that their brain waves resonate at like frequencies and for like durations, they create overtones of musical harmonies that are eternal, deep and collective; a symphony of the human species for all eternity and over the whole universe.
These songs also create a way for humans to communicate with other species, including mechanical or computerized creations of humans themselves; and of course for computers to communicate with themselves. In fact, life and intelligence can ultimately utilize these electromagnetic symphonies to embody life and intelligence in and of themselves."I sing the body electric..."
