9. Either the Magnetic field

or the harmonics of the field, has the effect on all living creatures.

120. Because of an improper use of the word "harmonics".

A field is a superposition of its harmonics. The post above implied that a field and its harmonics are two separate things. That isn't the case. It was obviously an attempt at appearing smart without having real knowledge of the subject.
-------------------------------------------

OBVIOUSLY :eyes:

Your own post "implies" that they are two separate things, at least semantically, each aspects of the other, in a "superpositional" relationship and not actually separate.

:hi: It would be very interesting to learn from your knowledge, or hear what context Dear Abby was referring to, rather than have the post/er shot down with petty semantics topped off with an insult.

If science is treated by some as intellectual blood sport, no wonder some sciencebound types shoot down anything that might challenge their assumptions, ego and insistence on topdogging anyone they can.

The wiki posts, esp. the second one, didn't provide any definitive info. Is wikipedia the be all and end all of scientific certitude these days?

The next time someone says LINK PLEASE, we should just passive/aggressively post some arbitrary link to wiki and if someone can't put an answer together themselves from a page of wikiness, they're an idiot?

A few searches prove that there is a wide range of discussion in different contexts regarding magnetic fields in relation to resonance -- different WORDS (which you used yourself, implying they are different) for different aspects even if they're not two separate THINGS.

I'll bet you that Dear Abby knows that.

Sorry the phrasing didn't meet the standards of the wiki wielding brainiacs, too busy being "right" to share their insights with DU.

Or maybe insights come from the godspot that so many deem bunk
