Could the ancients hear spherics directly? Oh, I think so!
Otherwise the drums would not have been constructed with additive
functions in mind.
Nor with spectral tonalities in mind.
Remember, they harbor air and other spherics, closed and vibrating!
But surely not the aurora, is that additive?
Or magnetic storms, antipodean lightning strikes, are they additive?
Every particle has its split-second say! The drum reflects!
The drum resonates! Eight fingers, two thumbs, the drum resonates!
Whose counting? I am.
