The Sense of Sound and Silence

There are two sensations that remind me of flying--one relating to sound and one relating to the lack thereof.

Seeing a "silent" TV screen--especially a big one--immediately brings up the sensation of being on an airplane. This is not surprising since I rarely ever want to watch the movies or video material shown. Over time, I have experienced numerous of associations between screen images without words and flying.

The sound triggers memories of flying is the fan of a notebook computer that kicks in when the hard drive is active. This is consistent with the sound of the early phases of a landing as small adjustments are made to speed and altitude.

Reminds me of the yogic concept of Space aka. ether or akasha. "Space" is the first element followed by air, fire, water, and earth. Each with their own characteristics. Ohe characteristics of space silence but also paradoxically with sound since sound travels in space. Taking on a quality of spaciousness is like when you are open minded, allowing, and willing to try things.

I have a husband with AS and also a 7 year son with AS. I see the need for that sense of spaciousness in them very often. They seem to need the pauses where they are not taking in anything at all- kind of like that sense of sound and silence that you are talking about, It's soothing I suppose.
