On my journey through the Sciences, I have encountered many signals. There are many ways to gather data about our environment, and almost any phenomenon can be used as a signal or probe. Recently, with the spectacular successes of the LIGO project, I’ve been musing on how much space is full of phenomena, particles and potential signals and probes (not involved with LIGO – just a big fan!).
There is an expression “to sound out” – to understand, and another “sound the depths” – to probe undersea using sonar. Sound is a compression wave, and “sounding the Void” seems apropros.
